There are times when one must take care of a multitude of things in RL and it keeps you from doing the things that you want to do. My one big hope was to get some time to write some stories and that didn’t work out all that well as you can plainly see – busy times abound.
Winter, Spring and now we’re into full blown Summer with all the heat and surprisingly torrential storms that seem to hit our area. At least I don’t need to use the snow shovel now, however, a boat might come in handy later.
I’m really enjoying the new computer and have put in quite a bit of time in the Beta lately so that I can test out and see what is going to happen with our characters in the next expansion. The classes seem to be okay and the one thing that will throw everyone for a loop is the GCD. I know I had to change my playstyle a bit to do some of the things that I normally just blast through – it’s just a bit more of a time-consuming thing. As always with each expansion, you must learn how to adjust to the game again, however, I don’t think there were massive things done like in Legion and some of the classes are getting some of the things back in their talents to take the place of the weapons. One thing I was happy to see when I was able to take a character that I was familiar with to play on – no Hati for the hunters. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I liked the concept of Hati and what the intent was but somehow, the poor thing feels a bit short when you were in combat.
I knew that I needed new glasses for a while now and finally got that off my plate. Got some new specs and am enjoying the lack of eye-strain for a major change. Of course, I have the usual age-related eye issues that aren’t too bad yet and I can see at 20/20 again for the moment. I just must know I am going to have to take breaks when my eyes start feeling too tired.
The one shocker was that my son finally got married to the woman that he has been living with off and on for the last nine or so years. I’m happy that they did do that because they do have a little girl to think of that is about to turn eight years old. Of course, they didn’t have a ceremony or anything like that and kept the affair very low-key. I know that it is going to be one of those things that they might regret later, however, the days of spending thousands of dollars for weddings has been long gone in my family for quite a few years.
We also had a major roof leak that required quite a bit of work and you know how you feel when there are people climbing about on the roof and the hammering – that will put you off gaming and writing when you have all that going on.
Let’s see, yep, had a birthday and turned a new year over – yep, leveled up to 69 and I’m still here and trying my best to hang in there. As they say, “Time marches on and Time waits for no man.” I know the last few years have zoomed by quickly.
Anyway, just thought I would let you all know that I am still alive, and the intent is still to get some writing done. I won’t be zipping about in the great outdoors because it’s bloody warm here now and I can’t deal with the heat very well. Hope to see you all in Azeroth soon.
