I've been on this wiki a lot lately. Like, A LOT. I joined less than a year ago and I'm currently #12 on the wiki leaderboard, with almost 4,000 edits. I enjoy wiki editing, and I enjoy this wiki particularly, but it's taking up a lot of my time.
For years, the computer has been what fills up my spare moments. My first love was Neopets, then graphic design requests, then forums, and now this wiki. Recently I've had a lot more spare time. I'm homeschooled, and it's only a few months until I graduate, so we've been having a lot less schoolwork. Of course, that means I'm online even more. That's not a good thing; screens aren't healthy, and they tend to make me really grouchy. It doesn't help that I've been struggling a lot with my sexual and gender identities this year, and I've been burying myself on the internet to forget my problems.
I would really like to stop being online so much, and I've realized there are other things I can do. I'd like to get better at piano. It would be good to start working out. I've been wanting to write more original music. Coursera has some great online classes I could do. I want to try crocheting again. There are tons of books that need read. I need to clear through all my crap before I move for college. I think getting a job this summer would be good. All of these are things I've been wanting to do, yet I always think, "Chev, you don't have the time." But I do! So for the past few days, I've online much less, and I've discovered real life isn't that bad if I keep busy.
Thus, I'm going to make an attempt to be on this wiki a lot less. I'll still be on - I need to finish the logos and I'd like to propose some major changes to the front page - but I have other things to do. (:
