Coffee And Pizza (Edition Eleven)

For starters I would like to apologize for not having this posted Friday as I usually do. Things got a little crazy with Christmas and the dog chewing through his tie out. I had to play intermediary between him wanting to play with the cat and the cat wanting nothing to do with him.

Since I posted this way later then I had planned. There will be no post on Friday the 31st as I am going to take a break this week.

Friday

I think the only mission I did all day was Record A Demo before heading off to sleep.

Saturday

I'm not sure what I did but I didn't play Rising Star.

Sunday

I noticed my ego was on the rise once again. I was up to 9% and had so far done at least three guitar lessons with no effect. I contemplated making a purchase in an attempt to balance my skills (3142) with my fans (1659).

I also want the pizza bike and have been trying to earn more pizza token so I can get it.

I want to shout out to @blitzzzz and @h3m4n7 for correcting some misinformation I got regarding earning pizza via staking and tipping. Stake 20 pizza to tip and enter pizza give-a-ways, the pizza discord airdrop, and or write great Rising Star content to earn it.

With all the thoughts running through my head I decided to do some comparison shopping on the only nft game markets I'm aware of on Hive, Open Hive (on Tribaldex), Nftm.art and of course the Rising Star market place. The going price for the pizza bike as of Saturday December 19 is 14-20 swap.hive, 79,900-80,000 starbits or 33 pizza. There may be other tokens that can be used to purchase it but I am mainly looking at these three.

Monday

I realized as much as I was hoping to not have to buy anymore cards for a while it seemed I was having a hard time getting my ego level down. I'm my skill level is too high for the amount of fans I have. I can do guitar lessons all day but lose little ego very slowly.

Tuesday

I realized I managed to drop down to 6% ego and decided to Record A Demo as my first mission of the day.

I have debated with myself in what would be more cost effective when it comes to how to make the inevitable purchase. I am looking to get a few cards and and wonder if I should buy one or two or just buy a few packs and maybe sell some cards to try and balance everything out.

Wednesday

I found a pizza after a Guitar Lesson so I headed over to Record A Demo. I'll do another when I wake up if I have the energy. If not then I will go back to Guitar Lesson's.

Upon more consideration I have decided to buy packs. I Can always turn around and sell those cards that have not benefit at the time and get back most of what I paid for a pack as most cards do not sell for less then 7000 starbits. I will be buying soon. I just want to to have enough to get five packs.

I found out today that using reward app was affecting my oneup payout so will revert back to 50-50 payout starting with this post.

I have lost track at this point how many of each mission I have done this week but I know for sure that I have only been doing guitar lessons and Record A Demo. I currently have 36,901 starbits banked and another 7334 earned so far this week. I want to earn another 7k to make it an even 50,000. If I can do that and buy five packs that would be great.

Holy cow. I managed to drop down to 4% ego. I haven't been able to get below 5 in weeks. My current stats are in the image above.

Total Missions: 741
Illegal Busking: 200

Hi ! :) .
I see a lot of players who focus on a 0% Ego ...
However, it is not stipulated by such a thing :).
What would a "Rising Star" be without any ego?
Philosophically, a human without ego would be made at the level of a mop
Here's a link about that : https://peakd.com/hive-167922/@thatcryptodave/what-s-a-rising-star-without-ego .
Thanks to @thatcryptodave

Well, shucks! That makes me feel relevant, and it makes me want to write more (which I should do). I'm so glad you were able to find value in my observations... and I wish you the best of luck in #RisingStar and beyond! 🙏

From my understanding, @jay63, the lower your ego, the more starbits you earn. I'll have to pay more attention to those numbers.
As far as a human without an ego being akin to a wr mop you could be right. 🤣
