JetPunk Word Search Completion!
First published: Monday May 15th, 2023
I'm the kind of person to set a goal and then fixate on it until it is done, even if it is to my own detriment. For a long time, this manifested itself on JetPunk in the form of 5 level goals I would set to reach. Reach level 15, now 20, 25, etc. That was great, but once I hit level 55 it started to take a lot more time to reach these new goals I would set. Needing a break, I pivoted to the section of the website I often only ventured to when I was put on hold on the phone......the word searches.
Don't get me wrong, I love word searches, I just missed when they initially came out on JetPunk as I was taking a bit of a break from it then. I knew if I started them, I'd want to finish all of them. Well, that's exactly what happened. I got sucked in. I took the bait. I saw the trap before me and I willingly stepped right into it.
Anyway, that's all to say I will not miss this self imposed prison of word searches I have been in for weeks. I will not miss forgetting the same cryptic clues words for the 4th time in a row. I will not miss trying to find that last hidden LAOS or IRAN in Hidden Countries. I will certainly not miss using trial and error to just guess the names of French Prime Ministers because I don't know many and refuse to "cheat" by looking them up.
To the JetPunk Crosswords, its been real, and its been fun, don't know if its been real fun. But a part of my daily routine changes today, and I am looking for a new JetPunk mountain to climb.
EDIT: This came off a little more negative on the crosswords than I intended. The crosswords were fun, my brain telling me I needed to complete them 10-12 at a time was not.
