Life has been busy. And stressful. And things.
No excuse, I know, but there it is. Anyway – time to move on. Quick rundown for those keeping track at home:
WoW – Still Playing (on Thorium Brotherhood and Moon Guard)
Star Wars: The Old Republic – Not really playing.
Rift: Kind of playing.
Flight Sim – Still Flying, about 2-3 times per month.
Work – Still working, thank goodness.
Other Stuff – No major change. Still married. Still have kids.
To elaborate on WoW – I am still playing, but I’m caught trying to have fun. I want to play my Mage on TB, but there isn’t anything for me to do there. Sure – I can grind Rep or grind Heroics – but I’m not much in a grindy mood. And that really is about all she wrote for WoW at lvl 90: Grind, Grind and then Grind some more – all so you can Raid and grind on the Raid trash and bosses.
It can be aggravating. So I’m trying to cast about to find things to do. RP? Maybe. There isn’t much on Thorium Brotherhood, and the folks on Moon Guard sometimes take themselves WAAAY too seriously. Quest? Meh. I hit 90. Don’t really want to. PvP? No, No way. I hear enough about how awesome people think they are, no need to go to a BG to hear more of it. Raid? Ugh. See my earlier though on that. Grindy McGrindfest.
The other problem is that I’ve been so… distant. I don’t log in to people saying ‘Hi!’ anymore. I’m more the quiet background guy that’ll log in and then log out after a bit without anyone really noticing.
Sometimes, that appeals to me. Most often, it doesn’t. I enjoy talking to folks, and hanging out – and that is one thing that I’ve certainly lost. I could get it back on TB by hanging out there more, but there just isn’t anything to do there. I could get it back on MoonGuard by hanging out and RP’ing, but damn – those stories just move too damn fast for me these days.
So I feel a bit stuck. I’ll log in, and poke around at things – but I won’t really do anything.
Do I play WoW still? Yeah. Do I know what I want to do there? Nope.
