Well, I am going to try to get back into the habit of writing a little bit although I may be way behind everyone in BfA at this point, however, I still have my characters living their lives with the knowledge that they are at war and not called up yet to serve. The thought of a battle or war looming in their futures has not dampened their spirits nor they’re for the adventures ahead of them with the rest of Azeroth.
My vision is still not great at this point, but the problem is getting narrowed down bit by bit and I hope that I can get something done with it soon. I am still going to play a bit and write when I can because I can’t force myself to just give it all up and sink down in the deep abyss of depression that would welcome me with open arms at this point. Nope, not going to give it up. I know that I am not going to be doing a whole lot of group content because my vision is spastic sometimes and I would hate to burden other people with my issues. Oh, my hand-eye coordination has been in the dumper for a while and that’s due to old age and arthritis, so, I’m just questing and dreaming my little dreams with my characters and trying to get their little lives back on track so that they won’t think that they have been forgotten after fourteen years of playing this silly game.
I’m finding myself in the older content more and more because I “know” where everything is there, and I don’t have to strain my eyeballs out of the sockets trying to see some of the stuff. Besides, I was always happier in the older content and even if I am doing everything solo these days, my memories of the fun that I had when my friends were still playing keeps my mind jumping around a bit. Sure, it gets a bit lonely, however, that’s okay too – if it gets to be too much, I log off and come back later.
It’s kind of sand to know that some of my old friends have passed away to the great beyond but it happens to everyone. No one gets out of this life alive and it starts going downhill from the day that we are born. I’ll admit that there have been times when I just felt like bagging it, however, World of Warcraft is such a huge part of my life that I am not going to walk away from it just yet and I will keep paying and playing for as long as I can muster up the energy to do it. Sure, I’m not going to be doing major progression or any of that, but I can still hide out in the lore (such as it is) and do my thing – poor characters may die a lot, but they will bounce back, and we’ll keep going.
Naturally, I have been seeing all the bad press for BfA and I still haven’t really gotten into the expansion very far at all. I hope things pick up and people start liking the game again – it sure is depressing to hear all the negative stuff all the time. So, wish me luck and I’ll keep plodding along.
See you all in Azeroth!!
