Ok. After reading several I figured I should offer this:

You spend 17 years of your life helping an elderly grandparent because you have no full-time job so that you can have a roof over your head, and after being evicted by them with the help of the courts so that relatives can sleep better at night gloating about their grand accomplishment, you spend most of 2012 poor, broke and jobless while waiting nearly four months for local government agencies to assist you in finding a job.

Or you spend almost 16 to 20 hours playing Wizard101 because all the people you held dear to your structure as a person has abandoned you, and you can take your aggression out on the allies of Malistaire and Morganthe.

You brake a pencil and say "dang it I fizzled!" 4. While on a bus you say "man i wish I could ride my swift shark to school" 5. You try to trade rocks for alowence money 6. You watch Clash of the Titans and yell "Hey a frost giant!" 7. You call your dog a Heck Hound 8. You see a mushrom and call it a boom shrom 9. You try to duel someone at school or your job 10. You go around and ask people which school is your favorite
( I just list these at random order I didnt realy ask people this)

Most of those I did so try to think about reality before you have an erge to take out your wand and deafet Malister.

My brother is totally obsessed with Wizard101! When I'll be on my laptop, he begs my mom to get off of hers and begs me to play with him. If I don't play with him, he gets angry. My mom often has to ask her computer back so she can go on it. XD

Also, same with my cousin. He has made several accounts just to see what all the schools are like and he's around level fourteen on all of them. XD

1. When you ask all your friends if they play.
2. When you ask one of your friends if they play sooo much they start playing.

Both of these happened to me.

Sounds like Santa Wizard needs to get your brother a computer of his own so that all three of you can play together.

  • You are always carrying a deck of cards to wherever you go.
  • You go to a zoo and say " Can we go see the Helephants?"
  • You try to make your own wand, and it doesnt work.
  • You keep tapping your compass, but it doesn't show you the names of places.
  • You carve out the inside of a tree, but you can't find the door inside
  • You are always picking up stones, wood, scrap metal, and poisonous mushrooms.
  • You look in your fridge for square watermelon, and a king banana.
  • You get to school and you say "What spell am I learning today".
  • You want a broomstick, a pony, and a hydra for your Birthday.
  • You are actually reading this post.

Top 7 reasons to show you’re addicted to Wizard101

You punish your kids by forcing them to level up your low level wizard. (Is that child abuse?) You wake up 30 minutes early before work just to use pet energy to level up a pet, so when you come home 10 hours later, your pet energy is back to full. You steal ….. ….errrrrrr……borrow crowns you gave your kids. You don’t return the borrowed crowns. You suggest bringing in dinner instead of going out so you have more time to play wizards You have more than three (3) Warlords. You begin dialog with your kids with, “Let me tell you what happened in my last PVP”.

You can open your backpack and go through the inventory, cards, etc while going to your next quest location without even using the arrow or actually look where your going.

Diary of a Wizard (a now closed fansite) has a wonderful post from Postcards from the Spiral about the Top 10 Ways You Know You’ve Been Playing Too Much Wizard101

TOP TEN WAYS YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN PLAYING TOO MUCH WIZARD101
(As if there IS such a thing!)
10. You’ve convinced your child/parent/significant other to create their own account so that you can battle together.
9. You’ve purchased a new computer so that people in your house can play together or play online at the same time.
8. You’ve set up a wireless network, after procrastinating for at least five years, so that people in your house can play at the same time.
7. When driving or riding in a car, you keep looking at the dashboard for a yellow arrow to tell you which direction to go and how many more steps until you get there.
6. When you reply to a text message sent to your phone, you press the “r” key and don’t understand why you don’t immediately see a text box.
5. You’re on a first-name basis with the employees at your neighborhood 7-11 (or wherever you buy Wizard 101 gift cards).
4. The employees know the name of at least one of your wizards, and ask you which wizard will get the pet from this particular gift card.
3. You’ve had a dream about leveling up.
2. You’ve had a dream about Merle Ambrose summoning you to his office (bonus points if he does NOT have a yellow exclamation point over his head).
1. You’ve had a dream about Wizard 101 announcing a seventh chair will be available in each player’s classroom, and you rushed to your computer the next morning to finally start a wizard from the seventh school on your account.

The only one I would add would be you see a stick on the ground and think -ooh! Mistwood!

Thank you both for the article and we encourage our players to list their own below!
I'm in big trouble! I stopped playing for about 5 months got guilty of having a membership and not using it, got back on at the middle of summer in 2012 and I was in marleybone being called a noob. 1 week later I get out of marleybone and into mooshu, 5 days later out of mooshu, 1 week later out of dragonspyre! 2 weeks later out of celestia. Now I in Zafaria I prolly have about 5-6 quests left and I'll be into Avalon. So lol you can tell I play way too much! I'm very sry to all my wizard101 teachers

Now I have to say those are funny!

Here is one I had happen to me:

You know you play too much Wizard101 when your bank sends you a notice asking if all of the Crowns purchases are legit.

Yes. I purchase crowns when they are $1 / 1000c (The $60.00 choice for 60,000c) and I buy them often. About 30-40 times total (around $1800.00 to be exact) all within a few months. I laughed after sending a reply saying that I approve all those transactions. xD

You know when every old guy looks like Merle Ambrose and you expect your dog or cat to cast a Spritely.
Also, you think you are under Malistaire's power when you begin to understand math, or you want to go to China just to see a Ninja Pig. You begin to delete all the songs on your I-pod because they don't sound like the Wizard 101 theme. Or, every time you see a storm you think a storm wizard is casting a spell. Also, if you trip and scrape your knee at rescess, you expect your friend to heal you. Or, at the holidays, you decorated your tree to look like Bartlebey. Also, you never cross the street because you are afraid you'll get into battle with a car.
