zelda vs fixed mindset

The expansiveness of the new zelda, combined with general "how do i want to approach my job search and skill building" and then a pile of stuff on Porchfest websites is putting me in a weird headspace.


in the one hand maybe i am just fretting wasting time. on the other hand maybe Zelda has things to teach me. Like I'm better at putting aside some of my social media than i am in normal weeks. and also Zelda is all about growing as a character - taking pleasure in that (vs just working with my usual preference for Mario or GTA guy who is about the same at the end of the story as the beginning.) might be a path away from my usual fixed mindset. or maybe i'm just making excuses for burning time in a game with its stronger guarantee of effort equaling progress.
