Sorry about the long period of time between posts! This crazy Dwarf was doing school work (winter break starts Saturday for me!) and traveling for the holidays (4 hour drive both ways... not exactly a short hike). So, I've been quiet just because I haven't had the time or energy to write.
So, it's a little late, but what is this crazy dwarf thankful for this holiday season? Well, I'll tell you! Well, at least the stuff about WoW. I'm obviously thankful for other stuff, but I'm just listing the stuff you guys will care about!
1. I'm thankful that I've been feeling better lately. This isn't regarding WoW, but it is regarding stuff that I've discussed on here before. I suffer from a severe case of social anxiety, and from September to November, I was really, really struggling with it. Stress from losing a writing gig, the holidays coming up, and school driving me a little crazy all added to my stress. I was having panic attacks almost every other day, and I couldn't really do anything about it. Finally, I decided it was time to get back on medication. Between that and some help from lots and lots of friends, my stress level has decreased significantly and I haven't had a panic attack in a couple of weeks. Yay, right? It's definitely been good. Being able to think clearly always helps with the healing process, and I'm finally making steps toward it.
2. I'm thankful for all of the fun stuff to do in WoW. Now, on a less serious topic, WoW. I love WoW, you all know that (otherwise I wouldn't blog about it), but there is so much to do. My kick lately has been leveling by PvP with Juhles. She has a frost death knight, and I'm on a disc priest. Can I tell you, it's a blast. We are having so much fun with it. We're both at level 68 (almost 69) as of last night, and we're totally rolling faces with our numbers. Also, discipline is broken. Healing while dealing damage? Best idea ever. I've never healed in PvP before, but I'm having a great time with it.
I've laid off pet battles a bit, but I'll probably go back to it with all the changes with 5.1 today. Getting geared is alright (I'm tiring of the valor grind), and the dungeons are okay. I want to mess with scenarios a bit more soon. I've been leveling my shaman as well, and she's absolutely amazing. Lots of fun to play elemental. I may be becoming more of a ranged player, even though owning the DPS charts in LFR makes me feel pretty good. I've not done the second half of Heart of Fear or Terrace yet, but I probably will this week. There is just so much to do, and I'm really loving it.
3. I'm thankful for my guild. I have horrible luck with guilds. I have a bit of a rough personality, and I often open my mouth where I necessarily shouldn't. And I'm overly sensitive, due to the disorders and stuff I've talked about before. A few months ago, I had a falling out with the GM and assistant raid leader in my old guild. But I finally, FINALLY found a guild that seems like a perfect fit. I love my guild (Argentum Legion on Wyrmrest Accord-US), It's an RP guild with people like me, who like to do almost everything in the game. Many of the people are really friendly, we have a lot of fun, and it's great. And, there's always people around to do stuff. So, those of you I game with in the Legion - you guys rock!
Coming later this week: Golden Lotus reputation and Shado-Pan reputation. Yes, I got my hands on the awesome Shado-Pan riding tigers. Best land mounts in the game, in my opinion. I may be a bit slow, because I do have a paper due this weekend, but I will at least get one of these out.
Until later this week!
