Go to the store and wonder "I wonder if i can pay with crowns,"

Dream that you failed a quest and record it as a nightmare.
When you get bored of wizard101 but keep playing anyway.
When you think of your school principal you see Ambrose.
Find yourself writing your best friend's name in green
Scream when someone says "Weakness"

these are all things I have done.

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 have one:

You go to a pool and you see a frog in the pool, and you say, "Ugh, I wish Professor Balestrom would stop spying on me!" LOL!

Never happened to me, but I have seen a frog in a pool (before I started playing)
my grandma's pool has frogs in it but i think of them as the storm professor's minions (i said storm professor because i cant spell really well on words i sometimes forget P.S. i almost typed proffesor LOL!)

I have only played for a couple of months - and am on my 4th wiz. But, the only thing confusing is the ability to follow all of the completed quests.

Is there any way possible to do that? If so, please tell me.
It would be grand, if there was a way to incorporate another page "Quest Completed" in the spell book to keep track of all of the questing you've done, the world you were in, name of the quest, who initiated the quest.

Sometimes I find myself running from one world to another and would like to know what I have and have not completed.. What does KI think?

Thank you Mary Lou
