Running a bit late in getting anything posted for the characters today after staying up late two nights running – makes the old brain pan run a bit slower than normal. At my age, that can be rather difficult. I may not even make a post for a character today since my brain seems to have turned into mush in regard to coming up with an idea.
Haven’t posted anything OOC for a while, so, I thought that I would give it another go.
Springtime in the Rockies – In Colorado. We are all used to the weather changing in a heartbeat; however, this weekend was quite the rollercoaster. One day it was hotter than Hades and the next day, cloudy, snowy and cold. No wonder so many people get colds this time of year – you never know what to wear except to layer and remove or add as needed.
Nothing new to report other than my little guild on the Horde side finally made it to Level 19 which isn’t all that bad considering that I have been doing the leveling primarily solo. Active members come and go, it seems. SafeHaven was actually an escape valve for me when the drama got too much to handle a year or so ago and I put all of my Hordies in there and slammed the door. I’m not antisocial by any means; however, I will rabbit at the first sign of OOC drama being forced on a guild.
Alliance side, I have been fortunate enough to be able to maintain my own little “private” guild for a while now and I am happy at how it is moving along even if I don’t have all of the bonuses with a large guild – it’s still fun. I have been in two guilds, three counting my own, that have been awesome and will continue to run my characters as the whim strikes me, I guess. There’s nothing like being able to RP on an RP realm, amirite?
One thing that I will have to say is that I am enjoying the game more than ever because of the slowing down of my pace as well as being able to have that “freedom” of being able to maintain a fairly decent RL existence. I mean, I do actually get away from my computers and look outside to make sure that the rest of humanity hasn’t disappeared from sight. World of Warcraft does seem to be a lot more fun these days.
I do have to admit is that WoW is definitely an outlet and social gathering spot for a lot of us old timers that don’t get out much. You’d be surprised at the number of Senior Citizens that I have run into during the last month – it’s been amazing. Of course, we’re RPing in-game and whispering about the grandchildren at the same time.
