I'm in the City of Villains Stress Test Beta

Posted by Nathaniel at 11:33 PM
GamingNot that this is especially special or anything of the like. Right now, anyone with a free Fileplanet account can download the test CoV client and get on the 3-day stress test that starts at 3AM PST (Pacific Standard Time, not Please Send Tell) this Friday morning and ends at midnight Sunday.

Keep in mind, this is a stress test beta. They will be testing the loads on the servers, taking stats, and making adjustments for go-live. There will be lag. Not just any kind of annoying lag, but constant, bitter, horrendous laaaaaaaaag. Do not complain, you aren't allowed. I think it's even in the EULA. It will suck, and I can just about guarantee that you will not have fun.

That said, I'll see you in the Rogue Isles this weekend.

You said once you were dead, I could take this over. City of Villians is a close second. Just like ArshrAAm and Everquest.

Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, public speaking anxiety and just not feeling all that happy.

That's OK, you need to have days like this, otherwise how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

Even though you know that sadness (public speaking anxiety) is a part of life, let's try to make it a small part of life.

With that said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

1. Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment your energy can flow and when your energy is flowing freely, you can flow.

2. Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.

3. Repeat positive affirmations. Things like "I feel good", "Positive energy flows through my body", "I see the good in all".

4. Listen to some music that you like. It doesn't have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.

5. Take some time out for yourself, relax and read a book, do something for yourself.

6. Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation CDs that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for "Meditation music" on Google or Yahoo and explore.

Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember there is no reality just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind and you do have the power to change your perception.

These tips will lift you up when you are down, but don't just use them when you are sad or public speaking anxiety . Try and practice them everyday, make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can't seem to shake, please go see a doctor. This is your life and don't take any chances. public speaking anxiety
