Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year celebration.
Just dropping a line to assure people that I am, in fact, still alive.
So what do I plan to do this year? (Prepare for incoming random thoughts!)
I picked up a copy of Diablo II and its expansion over the holiday. It seemed only right that I should learn something about it before doing any comprehensive write ups for the D3 beta – comparing D3 to WoW just won’t always work. I’ve played a little bit of it and will try to get some D3 posts up very soon. (Slap a TM on that “soon,” just like Blizzard.)
Tir put a new CPU cooler in my tower and it is now whisper quiet, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m using the machine I wouldn’t even be able to tell it was on. Of course, while he had the machine apart he started mumbling about solid state drives so I imagine there will be another upgrade for my machine sometime this year. (Thank you, sweetheart!)
As for WoW itself, I’m not too sure what my goals are for this year. I’m not really digging my new WoW home and my interest in my characters has continued to decline since the faction transfer. I’m logging in to raid on my priest mostly… remember this post? Yeah, I spoke too soon. That lasted for all of 2 nights. At the time, we were raiding 3 nights a week – I didn’t even get to complete the week on my mage. I had started a post a few times to talk about it, but none of them ever got finished. (And I swore I had published at least one of those, so that’s why it’s been so long since a post, I thought I had already done one…)
(We are 8/8 in 25s and 7/8 in our alt 10-man. I believe we’ll be starting heroics this week if everyone returns from their vacations/families.)
I would like to increase my presence here at clearcasting; I know I’ve had a bad habit of wandering away from time to time. It’s nothing personal, it just usually means that either work is kicking my ass or I have nothing to report on the gaming front. Or all I would be doing is repeating the same bitching/whining. I’m certainly not adverse to using this space to vent, but I don’t want to sound like a broken record – “Yep, still Alliance. Still raiding on the priest. Still hating it. Come back tomorrow for more of the same.”
A quick peek at my dashboard here and it appears that the 19th will be my 3-year blogiversary. (Did I spell that right? Spellcheck is no use for things like this.) No clue if I’ll be doing anything special for it… let’s see if I can remember to post something sometime that week and call it a win, kk?
For Christmas, Tir got me a drawing tablet and I’ve got access to a couple different versions of Photoshop… I’m not much of an artist, but I do have fits of creativity. I’ve got a little project I’m working on now for an embroidery pattern… but I also have a gabillion other projects floating around the house. Maybe this year I should focus on getting some of them completed. Maybe.
How about you, readers? Any goals in 2012?
WordPress sent me a nifty little thing detailing some of the statistics for my site this year. I would like to congratulate Zarigar on being my most active commenter of 2011 – go spam his blog, errrr… show him some love!
