On Blizzard

Look, ya’ll know how I feel about current World of Warcraft. I was thoroughly disappointed in both story and gameplay direction of BFA, and Shadowlands fixed some of those problems, but A) not enough of them and B) it added a whole bunch of new and equally bad ones. I stuck around long enough to…

What I’ve been dealing with

So you might have noticed it’s been a couple of months since I was able to write anything. I thought I’d explain why. Also I thought I’d give everyone who doesn’t necessarily read this a place to learn about my job situation since it’s a bit complex. Rewind to November of 2018. I’m working at…

Some things changed, some didn’t

Well, that was almost a year that went by, wasn’t it. A lot’s changed in that time, of course. The current worldwide pandemic has made that inevitable. I am lucky enough to still be employed, for the time being, but the stress of being mostly stuck at home while my children’s schools have shut down,…

The one that started it all

Before I proceed into the story for the Heavensward expansion, I’m trying to level a few classes to 50 first. My goal is to get a better feel for them, see what I might like to consider my main going forward. Today I got the Black Mage to that goal, and completed the level 50…

Blog Challenge #40: Getting to know you

It’s coming up on the two year anniversary of this little set of challenges I’ve been writing with Z and Cinder, and now they want to get to know me, the guy behind the blog, better. To do that, they’ve provided a set of what is being called “Comfy Questions” that have apparently been floating…

Blog Challenge #30: 2018 Bucket List

Uh….oops. Sorry Z and Cinder, looks like I jumped the gun on this one. Should have guessed this would be your first topic. Then again, I suppose I’ve almost missed this week’s blog for my own goals, so I guess I should thank you for a quick cop-out, I suppose. I haven’t made much progress…

Resolutions are Lame

A podcaster and guy I admire, Brian Brushwood, once said the following in December of 2012: “Resolutions are stupid, soft, and gooey. Written, specific goals however are awesome and the closest thing to real magic that exists in this world.” I took that to heart and decided to turn my resolutions into actual goals that…

Blog Challenge #27: How do you find the time?

Z and Cinder are curious how I find the time to play WoW with all the real life stuff to do? Well, I’ll tell you, it’s not easy. I’m a father of two now, and those kiddos need a lot of time with daddy (and mommy too of course). Not to mention spending time with…

Blog Challenge #25: Who do you cheat on WoW with?

It’s a suggestion from Ann from AnnInWonderland this time around in Z and Cinder’s blogging challenge, and she wants to know what other games I play besides World of Warcraft. Well, the answer is “At the moment, not much of anything”. Lately my life has been incredibly busy, mostly thanks to my children, and what…
