I'm so over it

After more than two years of time, effort and money thrown into the game, I'm giving up Vampire Wars.

I've had it. It's clear Zynga doesn't care enough about its current customers to make any effort to keep them.

The last straw for me is having the gifting box pop up every single time I click on any rewards. It might not seem like much, but it at least triples the time it takes to try to collect things. I just can't take it anymore.

So if you're a VW friend and want some of my abilities and stuff, send me your gift link FAST. I'll leave the account open for another day or two, but then I'm blocking VW.

I started an original romance novel a couple years ago. Maybe now that I'm no longer playing any Facebook games I'll start writing again.

Or maybe not. :)

Trashy book wisdom

I'm reading another trashy romance, For Love or Legacy by Ruth Cardello. Something in the book, a comment by one of the character's mothers, struck me:

The great part about getting older is you realize you don't have to impress anyone else.

How true!

That is all.

A clean slate

It's a new year. A clean slate. A blank piece of paper.

There's a cartoon going around on Facebook. Angus and Phil: What exactly is a New Year's resolution? It's a 'to do' list for the first week in January.

It's funny because it's true. Every year I resolve to exercise, to lose weight, to be a better person, to read my daily devotions, yadda yadda yadda. And it never lasts.

A friend of mine, aliaslaceygreen, has inspired me. Instead of making those same old resolutions that I can't manage to keep for more than a week or two, I'm choosing a word for the year.

My word for 2012 is LISTEN.

I don't know if it's possible to overcome my self-absorbed nature. One of my "interesting facts about me" haiku says it best:

I'm a space cadet
Real life isn't as good as
The world in my head

But this year I'm going to try to listen better... to my family, to friends and church members, to what God might be trying to tell me.

Is a word better than a resolution?

I don't know, but I guess I'll find out.
