Pants Points Report

This week: 129/350 Total for v2: 2540/3750 completion: 67.73% I got a D.

This is going to be the last one of these for a little while.  As I said yesterday, I'm cutting back on some things, and as my scores may have shown in the last few weeks, I'm not doing great.  The stress of not having my wardrobe together enough to make the points is just a little bit emotionally draining every day, and for now I could use that extra breathing room.

When they return, there will be modifications.  I'm not certain what they're going to be yet, but version 3 will include alterations to the effect of:

  • Belts/suspenders are not mandatory when wearing pants that fit.  A few times lately, I've missed out on full points because I didn't want to bother stringing a belt through the loops of a pair of pants that stay up fine on their own.
  • Weather-based conditions for whether I need to wear two shirts.
  • A point bonus for actually doing laundry, rather than just the consequences of doing laundry.
  • Penalties.  Like, on days when I'm wearing more dirty items than clean ones, or if I dress inappropriately, or stuff.

Version 3 may end up integrating some of my other self-maintenance routines[1. Or non-routines, which is the problem.], too, like exercise, showering, shaving, brushing my teeth, and so on.  I'd want to roll it in slowly, so that I don't overcomplicate it and break the game, but I might end up with a much more coherent system for keeping my life together outside the internet.

Gamefying this aspect of my life has been working out pretty well, and I'm glad I'm doing it and will continue to do it.  But for a little while, it will be nice to have one fewer thing on my to-do list -- especially one fewer thing that involves math.
