Whoa! All of my good intentions of writing more frequently kind of ended up not happening because I’ve been rather busy sorting things out and getting a bit more organized with game-playing. Yep, I have a few alts that I am working on and enjoying the effort even if it is going to take a long time to get some of them caught up.
Finally made my second 100 happen and I have one on Alliance and one on Horde now – the gearing shall commence on the new one that I just happened to hit last night. What an awesome feeling that was because it has been a real struggle getting poor Kaldor to cap because I wasn’t real familiar with the Alliance side of Draenor and I’m not the best person for map reading either.
Whee!! This has been a bonus two weeks for me because I finally got my S.E.L.F.I.E camera and the upgrade, so that part of the game should be heating up for me too. I’ll have to post some pictures when I have time and I’m on the computer that has my screenshots on it. I also got my Menagerie opened on my Horde Garrison and will get the same for the Alliance later on today as well.
Unfortunately, I think one of my desktops is going through its death throes at the moment and that makes me sad because I wasn’t planning on replacing it this year at all. Guess I finally killed the fan on it and it should be an easy fix once I get it into the shop. Oh, don’t look at me like that, I’m not mechanically inclined at all and I’m afraid that I would do more damage than repair if I tried to do it myself. I’m not sure if that is all that is wrong with it either because I was smelling that smell of burning plastic and I’m afraid to crack the case open. Maybe I’ll get my son to take a look at it before I take it into the shop because he might be able to fix it for me – good thinking, right? I would just like to be able to get some of the files off of that computer before it goes completely belly-up and I’m trying to figure out what I can do in so far as a quick back-up to another hard-drive.
I guess I am going to be busy trying to get my Alliance characters caught up with my Horde since I was dragging my feet so much on getting that goal accomplished, however, I am looking forward to it and I know that I am going to have a lot of fun with it. One of the things that held me back on the Alliance side was the fact that my main was a Night Elf and I just couldn’t stand to look at him if I left the new models on. Now that they have somewhat fixed that issue, I can run around and enjoy the models a bit more. My next big plan is to cap out a character that isn’t a hunter – I have a ton of hunters. At least I have a good portion of my writing and character bio information saved off on a flash drive for now.
One of the other things that I have been doing is spending some time outside a bit. After literally being locked in the house for the better part of a month I was really starting to get a good case of cabin fever which is not conducive to a good relationship with one’s spouse if they are suffering the same malady. I know that I was really getting tired of the snow and ice for the month of February and was more than tired of feeling like it was never going to end. We’ve had a few days here in the Mile High City that have broken the records for “Highs” that have been standing for quite a few years and I know it felt good to be outside and seeing the bright light out there. My heart truly goes out to the people that live back East because they have really had a miserable winter.
I’m still planning on getting back into a writing schedule of some sort in the near future and keep on writing, however, my mindset hasn’t really been all that lately. I want to write and I want to enjoy posting on my blogs, however, I just haven’t had the mood swing in that direction a whole lot lately. It happens and some of it has to do with the fact that I am suffering a bit of a writer’s block. I go through these phases as I am sure that most people do, however, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I haven’t felt like playing as much as I have in the past. Used too I would spend hours upon hours just sitting here in front of my computers and playing, however, I am finding the urge to do other things more compelling than that. I do still have some health issues, however, I am getting better at controlling some of that. Some of my problem is that I was going through some major burn out after playing continuously for the last two years, grinding out levels on guilds and what not solo – that was very time consuming even if it felt rewarding at the same time. I’ve caught up on some of my reading and I’ve watched some shows that I kept putting off because of my heavy involvement with World of Warcraft.
Oh well, off I go to do some other things and get back to playing the game. I am still having fun even if I still think that there is something seriously “off” with WoD.
