SparkWheel Streak... BROKEN!!!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

A mere 64 days shy of a a yearlong streak. It's pathetic, but I'm super bummed. I'm no particularly inclined to give a crap about spinning the wheel anymore. I'm not sure why that streak mattered so much to me, but it did. I like the points and all for level purposes, but I wanted my longest streak to read 365 days, at a minimum. Giving up when things fall short of perfect seems to be how I live my life. Not the greatest approach, but I I can't help but think I'll never get that 365 day streak. I'll have to try using this experience to practice breaking that type of thought pattern. Now I know how my LSU basketball team felt to have a 7 game win streak (that's a long time for them) snapped last week. Well, not quite. Wining games requires a lot more hard work than logging in and spinning the wheel, but still.

Early day at work with a late rise meant I didn't get to it this morning. Then, I ddn't think about it between the brief break between work and heading out of town. I just made it back into town at 12:15AM, and I thought, "I don't think I spun the wheel today." Doesn't matter much though. Technically, the day changes at 11PM anyway (because that's how the website is set up, I guess).

Oh well. So much for perfection. Back to the beginning.

    You can set the time zone so it doesn't change at 11PM - that's eastern time. Go to your settings and change it to wherever you want -even earlier than your actual time to give yourself an extra hour if you like. Works for me - after a streak broke for the same reason. God bless your success on this journey we all share. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
