I really dislike wasting time.
Of course, I am relatively flexible about what I deem 'time well spent'. Playing RPGs, brainstorming, laughing and hanging out with friends, these are not wastes of time by any means. That are important, necessary, and they make it easier to handle the rest of the baggage and garbage life has to offer.
So this weekend, with some exception, was wasted.
True, I got to run my game at the learning center in Brooklyn for the kids and it was fun but the rest of the weekend felt like I accomplished nothing. When I say nothing I mean I didn't even accomplish that unwinding and recharging that comes with enjoying ones self in some way on the weekend.
The end result is I am starting this week a bit under-enthused. That is why this post is such a downer. Sorry. I felt the need to get this off my chest and placed somewhere. I chose here. It's my blog, I can do what I want right?
If you want to know what RPGs do for me, what purpose they ultimately serve in my life it's this...they prevent and neutralize this. They get right of this feeling of nearly crippling blah.
A new game is needed. And soon.
