EVE can often be a barometer on how well I am tracking in Real Life.
When I am playing, writing, and keeping up with other people’s EVE Blogs it tends to mean I’m on top of life.
When I am not doing those things – it tends to mean life has my measure.
If I am sorting inventory and reducing my asset spread in game, it will often mean my real life feels cluttered and dis-organised.
If I am undocking to do exploration or my wormhole travels, it will often mean life on the home front feels good.
If I ever catch myself questioning what I am doing in EVE and should I stop playing, it will normally mean I feel the need for change in Real Life.
