You remember back in the Spring I said I was quitting WoW and that, while I would never say never, I didn't intend to come back? Well, now I remember why I always said "never say never."
I returned to WoW a couple weeks ago and am considering a return to blogging. I wanted to explain the . . . conditions under which I'm returning to both before getting into it, since they're going to change the way the blog is written quite a bit. Then we'll see what happens.
I've been doing so well since this Spring. I'm back in school, I changed my major to something I am passionate about and it's going well, I'm going to be doing Study Abroad this summer if I can scrounge up the cash to pay for it, I'm teaching myself a second language, I've lost a ridiculous amount of weight (in a good way!) and I'm generally doing great.
The problem came because my schedule is so hectic and busy it's hard to find times to do social things, so when I do find free-time there's often nothing to do. I decided to start playing WoW again over the Christmas holiday to kill time. It's been great to come back. I've come back as a super-casual (did I mention those schedule obligations?) so I'm not really raiding other than flex here and there with my guildies. I'm mostly doing pet battles and achievements and it's been a great semi-social timesink for the times when I'm out of school work to do.
I've been playing the game entirely different from the way I once played and I've had some very interesting adventures. I wanted to blog about them but I remembered my love/hate relationship with blogging. I like writing. No, I love writing. And, as you can probably tell, I like talking about myself.
When I originally started NerfFaids back in the day it was not meant to be educational or to provide a service or help to others; it was meant to be more of a public journal while I learned to make gold. I want to do the journal thing again.
So I might be putting up some WoW posts in the coming time. The majority will probably be gold-flavored (once a gold maker, always a gold maker) but I'm going to return to writing for me, and only for me. If you'd like to keep reading that's great. Now I'm off to class.
