Gaming Tidbits

This is my first post of the year, in April. How is everyone doing? I always meant to write sooner. I had it in my mind that I would come back with something meaningful about my hiatus, yet I had nothing. The truth is, I just needed a break.

Every so often, I felt a tinge of guilt for not posting anything here, which is silly because blogging isn’t a job. The thing I felt worse about is not keeping up with my blogging friends. Read more…

Returning to WoW

It’s been four months since I renewed my World of Warcraft subscription. Being absent for six years meant I had a lot to catch up on, and indeed the game has changed a lot while I was gone. For the better, I believe.

Timeless Thoughts: World of Warcraft

One of the few WoW screenshots I could find.

In the summer of 2010, my then-boyfriend Michael introduced me to World of Warcraft. I’ve never played an MMORPG before. It was completely new to me, but little did I know that it would define my life for the next six months. I loved every minute of it.

I had no idea what to do at first, but I chose the mage class because magic is cool. I then picked Forsaken for my race as we played on the Horde side. Read more…
