some ways you know you played this game way to much is you spend your life savings or any money you get your hands on buying crowns. when you fail your classes because you where thinking of what the new world is after azteca and thinking of new ideas of what it might be (me) you wake up in the middle of the night go to your sink wash your face look in the mirror and malistaire stares bake at you with his evil eyes. you go to the bank and ask them if they will put your clothes in the shared bank Steven mythdust lvl 84 you can find me everywhere in the spiral

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!
Mistwood that's funny professor.

Please tell me I am not the only one who did this;

I was day dreaming about going on and kicking peeps on Wizard101, when my teacher said; "Ok, now we have a speical guest!" My first thought was Prof. Ambrose!! It was our princible.
Later, I asked out loud; "WHEN ARE WE GONNA LEARN SUN SERPENT!!!???" And then I was like and my teacher was like ?????????????????????
OMG ALURA!! Lol!!! One time I said really low "aye you aye ya" (the phrase the seraph says in the spell or at least it sounds like it ) to myself, and the person who sat next to me looked at me funny and I just said "What?" Lol and another time when my teacher said the word "Balance" in science class, I ALMOST said "Am I ready to learn Ra professor (whatever the balance teachers name is, I forget) ? Luckily I stopped myself before I could start making the sound judgement makes when casted. "AHEM!!!" Lol I love that spell

Here are a few

-When 3 of your friends are feeling sad and you try to cast unicorn.
-When you wake up at 7:00 to play. (Guilty)
-When you find a pig, and then start running going like, "NO, DON'T SLICE ME". (Almost guilty)
-When you are over level 80. (Guilty)
-When you sit down on your lunch table, start eating, and go like "Where do they get these mega snacks?".
-When you stay up one hour after you are supposed to sleep thinking about what you were gonna do on Wizard101 the next day. (Guilty)
-When you find a piece of rock and say "Aha, lets hope I get a fossil".
-When you overburn toast to make Caliburnt Toast.

When you minimize the wizard101 screen to have the bosses (or anything including easy guys like lost souls) resist and spells and stuff like from wiki.
Or look everything up before you decide something like what pet should I have.
Or almost respond with lol or yw or np or ty (which I do a lot with the Ty thing)

I don't do any of these I only play an hour a day. I would feel really stupid if i saw a stick and squealed '' ooh mistwood!! '' In front of my friends :) They don't play W101 so they would ask me '' What the heck is mistwood? ''

Another way you know your addicted is if you wanna play the game in real life.
I am addicted in that way :)

When you see something colorful in the corner of a room and think "Ooh finally found that Smith!"

I shall say...I am guilty of having done this before

You know that you have been playing wizard too much when you don't eat and use your lunch money to buy gift cards for wizard . Another one is that you start texting you friends like you would talk on wizard with text chat. I start to thumb my desk at school as if I was moving my wizard around on my laptop. You also know when you fall asleep at school because your up late leveling up.
