Musing and Pondering

I tend to get kind of burned out on these giant Bethesda games after a while--there's just so much to do, and if you tend to be kind of a completist it can be overwhelming--but I'm having a leisurely go at Skyrim, and so far I am pleased to say that I have not been turned into a vampire.

Also, the people seem to be not quite as terrifyingly ugly as in previous Bethesda games I've played, so nice work there.

I suppose really I should just take a lesson from these games and learn to prioritize. Don't feel the need to try to do everything, for one cannot do absolutely everything in life, that's what these games tell me. Focus your energies on what matters to you, instead.

However grand your ambitions, you can't locate the missing family heirlooms of every person in the country! You can't clear every single cave of bandits! You can't mine every vein of ore or harvest every bunch of mountain flowers!

Also, when you try to carry too much, it slows you down, so you have to be willing to drop things and move on.

Yes, that's what I'm doing when I play games. Learning important lessons about life.
