2. You call electricity and electric types storm.
3. You call dark types death types.
4.You find yourself quoting your catch phrases from wizard101
5. You spend your time playing this game or on the forums when you should be doing something else more important like school or work(No I am not doing this now....or am I?)
These Have happened to me a LOT lol

lol, I have a good one. One day in school my friend told me that he quit playing Wizard101....... 1 I bugged him the rest of the day telling him that I had to confiscate his wand and send it to Ambrose.

My other friend and I were also practicing the fire and death symbols, everyone was staring at us like we were crazy

You set your alarm clock for three in the morning just so you can get up and get an early start on reagent farming before the rest of the Wizard 101 community has had a chance to.

You look at your dogs and cats and wonder why they aren't dressed in Victorian clothing and walking on their hind legs.

When your husband asks you what's for dinner you hand him a plate of microwaved hot dogs and pizza rolls just so you can get back to playing W101

You would rather spend a Saturday afternoon playing W101 than going out to see the latest movie.

What happens if you got all of the above? Awww! I am so in trouble ;)

You also know you've been playing too much when you're in the middle of a spelling test and you start either: randomly doodling your favorite pet on the paper or writing down spells for words on the test (Been there, done that, I'm ashamed to admit I used the WHOLE paper up writing down w101 words :( ) Also, when you are in class and randomly start shouting DIE! DIE! DIE! YOU STUPID KRAKEN!! I have done that, too. :?

One way to tell that your addicted to Wizard 101 is if you

-hum the songs
-spend EVERY little scrap of extra money that you get/find on crowns(VERY guilty)
-if more then $30 total have been spent on crowns per player(also way guilty)
- fall asleep thinking about Wizard 101 or have dreams about it
- have one then more account so you can keep your old grandmasters and start fresh with some new ones
-Think about it all day at school/work, and then rush home to play it

I am totally addicted but i dont care its soooooooooooo fun!!

10: You call your friends who play W101 by their wizard's name.

9: You trace the school symbols in the air and get disappointed when nothing happens.

8: You trace the school symbols in the air, period.

7: You randomly pick up sticks, rocks, bits of metal, and various plants.

6: You try to build something out of said sticks, rocks, bits of metal, and plants.

5: You wait for a few hours after building with said materials - you need to let it cool down!

4: You've told at least 5 people to play.

3: You walk into a furniture store and ask where the crafting stations are - for all your sticks, rocks, bits of metal, and plants.

2: On your resume, among your occupation list is "Savior of the Spiral."

1: You try to come up with "the Top 10 Signs That You Play W101 Too Much."

4. Come home from school, run straight to your computer, and do something related to W101
7. Feel the need escape earth and go to " The Spiral."

Here is my top ten reasons:

1 when you look at the face XD you cannot see it as the letters X D : I am guilty and when I see X D I still see it as a face)

2 Have a really good friend that you only seem to talk about Wizard101 to: guilty again

3 See an orange dog and don't pet it because you think it is a heckhound and if you pet it it will burn you: guilty yet again

4 When you go outside you want to play Wizard101 irl: guilty again

5 When your grandma says this rug looks like a spiral you think about all the worlds and Celestia: guilty again

6 When you see a floaty with a hole in it you say "OMG Storm Shark Attack!" "guilty again

7 Have three Wizard101 accounts: guilty here are the three kuy5, Jokio3, and Dragonaaron

8 Find a beetle in the desert and say "Zeke, Zeke! I found a Beetle!": guilty again

9 Find yourself humming the Marleybone Commons theme: guilty again

10 When people say you are full of life you say "If I am then, where are the plants?": guiltiest of them all

You get a new puppy and wonder what school it's from and what it's talents are going to be...

You calculate just how many times you will have to shoot your new pup from a cannon to make him "Epic"...

You ask your vet how much the mega snack packs are gonna cost...

Your wife won't let you name him "Prince Lulu" or some other crazy combination from W101 because she doesn't want to spend the 500 gold to rename him.

http://diaryofawizard.com/ has a wonderful post from Postcards from the Spiral about the Top 10 Ways You Know You’ve Been Playing Wizard101 Too Much

Here's three - to read the rest, follow the link below.

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.


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 done number 10, number 9- i have 2 computers in my house, and i wouldn't have bought a new one if only had one. number 8- what the heck does that mean?

i've done that with every song on wizard101. my friends now think i'm crazy. (before you read this next part, just so you know i share an account with my dad.) i even started humming it in front of a guy i like. he said i am obsessed with it.

Sounds like someones got a crush.

Let's see, this one happened me last week, kinda embarassing.

My friend Dylan called to see if I was coming to the Airsoft Gun fight we were having at the sandpits behind his house (It was a half an hour after it started) and I told him I completely forgot cause I was on Wizard101. He laughed for like a full minute.

When you are my age, that ain't some thing to be proud of.

I think I play Wizard 101 too much because when I am on a site no where related to Wizard 101 I hear the music I play it every day, I visit the site every day, I visit Wizard101central every day. I imagine I am playing Wizard 101 when I am in places like school. And I use my allowance every week to buy crowns.
