Once a new level
comes within about 20 XP, I usually get determined to reach the new level before that day
is over. Therefore, I force myself to node
and pump out mostly boring facts
or other mindless nodes
. Not that these nodes are bad; they're merely bland
and don't reflect my personality
as well as my proper
nodes do. Because they are so unexciting, no one ever votes
on them. This decreases my experience to nodes ratio
and forces me to claw
at the time I need it the most.
Today, my nodes are exceedingly bland, because this phenomena is combined with insomnia, procrastination and a general lack of creativity. I have a Java program due in 12 hours that I have not yet started. I'm really in quite a sorry state for noding. So I'm looking all around my room for things to node quickly and blandly. I'm noding chemistry formulas and flipping through Random Nodes for writeups to respond to. Bleh. Damn Everything addiction.
That level 4 C! button better be worth it . ;)
