Stages of playing Farmville

hi i am sunayna and i was a farmville adict.

I recently saw someone playing farmville and realized how important is was for me at one point in time. (“One point in time” is an interesting thought, more on it later)

Coming back to farmville, i realised that there are certain stages that one goes through with farmville.

No clue stage – This is the stage where u have not heard about farmville and u find it strange when someone says that they have to go home to milk their cows or feed their horses.

At this stage, people also get funny sounding requests like they found a pig with your name on it and u wonder wassup

Info stage – Most end up clicking to know what is the pig doing with your name  and u somehow start playing it.

Wonderment stage – If u like it u start playing it wonderment. You check out the various trees and seeds that are available. U enjoy the free animals…the lake…trees…the plants…and amazing things that u get.

This is what happens after that

Anxiety stage – this is the stage that u get into after playing it for little time. It is not addiction yet but u keep visiting it often to check. This is severe in case of people who have net access.At this stage we keep increasing our neighbors and want to get benefits of it…we end up accepting or sending requests to people we normally wouldn’t have.

Addiction – This is the worst. you show everyone ur house and ur plants. U really think that you own all of it. If u r smiling now reading this, u know what i am talking about.

You even dream about farmville at this stage. This is not the toughest stage because u enjoy it thoroughly…U get really irritated when u r unable to attend to your farm.

though others find you annoying at this stage but u don’t care.

Turmoil – This is the stage wherein u r bored but also excited because farmville keeps bringing something up and keeps u hooked.

U slowly, unconsciously feel the turmoil but don’t do anything about it.

U slowly start loosing interest too but somehow hang on. U see that other friends whom u were jealous of have stopped playing.

U finally decide to quit, one day u do.

no matter why u played or how long, it is an experience worth having…just like life. 🙂

I was on a trip to shirdi recently and clicked a few real farm snaps on the way. Wishful thinking.
