OOC – June 27th … Why Do You Do That?

June 27th, 2017

LOL had some physical issues that kept me from playing World of Warcraft for a couple of days and when I did – where do I start again?  I do know that I have a few characters out roaming about and I still play the majority of them to get inspired about writing again, however, that doesn’t work sometimes and this was one of those times.  I also go through phases sometimes when I have the double-kicker of getting depressed at the same time that I am physically not feeling well.

I know part of my problem is not getting out and actually interacting with RL people doesn’t help a whole lot, however, being a caregiver for someone that is disabled does make it rather challenging sometimes to be able to do that sort of thing.   Part of my depression stems from the fact that I know that things aren’t going to change in RL and that the majority of the people that I used to play with in-game are not longer playing and apparently have no intentions of coming back.  Oh well, that’s life with the gaming world and I am going to have to accept it.

I am probably a terrible gamer, however, I enjoy what I do and since I tend to do things solo, I enjoy things for what they are – strictly entertainment and not a career building endeavor. I love the fantasy of gaming and the escape from reality – there are times when it’s not so easy to escape the reality that time is passing and I’m not getting any younger either.  In my mind, I’m still Peter Pan with Tinkerbell, however, looking at my body, I know better than that.  Gravity does bad things to your body when you age and you can’t ignore it.

It has been rather peculiar that I am finding myself being drawn more to the Old Content in-game due to the storylines and to the gaming itself.  I love the Lore of the game although it has been botched up so many times now that I am getting “anything goes” out of it a lot of the time.  It’s much easier to get lost and channeled in the fantasy world when you are actually enjoying what you’re doing – I’m not enjoying a lot of the Legion stuff because there is a ton of it to do and there is no point to it when you already know that you aren’t going to get to finish it  – the only place I can’t fly is in Legion, too many hoops and I just don’t feel like playing that way.

Still love the game and the people in it, however, I might take a hiatus here in the near future because it does seem as though I am getting to the point that I don’t want to log in if I feel like I have to play on the Broken Shore.  I have had fun with it when I do get in there for awhile and then I have to take a break from it because it becomes too tedious.  I was the same way in Draenor for a while too because I was late getting my flying there as well, took freaking forever.

The only choice we have been given in the last two expansions is to do the Pathfinder requirements – I usually get kissed when I have sex, however, since I’m paying for it – seems like I just got screwed.  Legion is definitely going to be my last expansion and I have plenty of characters to keep me busy for the rest of my natural life.

Okay, time to put forth some effort in my writing and get on with the show, if I play my way and immerse myself in my characters’ “lives” I might stick with it a bit longer.  I used to enjoy writing quite a bit even if it is all drabble and nonsense – I’m not a professional writer and I just write for the fun of it, if I had any intentions of earning a living with it, I’ve long since given that up.

See you all in-game and I do apologize for my wandering rant here, it’s a mood thing that will soon pass, I hope.

  1. Never apologize for a “rant”. It has to come out, one way or another, and this is a fine outlet for it.

    I’m sorry RL is so troubled. But you are right indeed, getting out can make a huge difference. There is just something about being “locked up” that starts a never ending viscious cycle for many. Even a short walk can help.

    As for the game, it can be difficult to log in and stop and think “What do I want to do tonight”, when we are being “channeled” in directions, somehow. But yeah, trying to look pass that, and just immerse oneself is a great idea.

    You are not RPing in the game, are you, or? Maybe just a stroll down your favorite city on a decent RP server can help boost your in game mood a bit 🙂

  2. Hey, I know I’m a terrible gamer and ranting is all part of the game (and life lol) so don’t be sorry – we’ve all been there at one point or another so we get it 😀

    If you need some company in the game add me and we can group up, kill some dragons (or demons or whatever lol) for a bit – it always cheers me up no matter how bad a day I’ve had 😀

    And you can feel free to rant all you like 😀

    • Thank you for understanding, I was really having a terrible time there that day. Everything I touched turned into fertilizer and it just seemed never ending. I don’t usually like to publicly rant about stuff, however, that particular day was not a “good” one for me.

      Sure, I understand about the gaming thing – I’m not real good at it either, however, I will keep going and trying to work my way through stuff, I think that Legion is just frustrating as all get-out sometimes and it stresses me out. Sure, we can try to get together sometime in-game. 😀
