I have acquired many books I want to read, yet my mind constantly encourages me to visit more thrift stores, bookstores, and acquire – rather than read – more. Is it, then, easier to own than read? What if we adjust our thinking away from “acquiring” to “finishing” as the biggest obstacle in completing tasks? We can oversaturate our task-acquisition to anything we want making us spoiled by choice. What if we oversaturate our task-finishing time instead?
I’ve been at Wall Market in FF7 for over five months. It’s not a difficult part in the game. There aren’t any wild fetch quests. I’ve been there so long only because I’ve wanted to soak in all the nuances of the world that I’ve procrastinated on spending that hour to actually go about soaking it all in. These sorts of minor, tangential thoughts are the ones I want to write about in “Media Meandry.”
