So what’s been going on with the Lana, Missy, Mojo – whatever you wanna call me 😛 ?
Well, uhm. I mentioned at the start of the year that I was going to up my days working from 2 to 3. And so I have.
We decided on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Good news is, I have been at work 3 days a week since I started, ehm no I have not, I actually missed one day, BUT ONLY ONE!!! The “bad” news is that I haven’t managed to meet up more then one Monday. I’ve always called in sick, but I have made an appearance on Tuesdays instead.
I am not sure why Monday’s are so hard for me, I just don’t seem to be able to get out the door. So because of that I have decided to switch my day to Tuesday. That’s not the end of the world anyways. As I’ve said, I’ve managed to come almost every day, but I have noticed a change in my mood – I am more tired, obviously, which makes affects my moods a lot. I get irritated faster, more moodswings, I’ll cry a lot easier. With that I think I might have to go back down to two days.
Sort of a letdown but on the other hand, I’ve found out that I can do two days pretty much all the time now, so upping to three days sort of helped me when you look at it.
Last week I met up with the councilor and agreed to try 3 days a little bit more, just to see properly where my limits are, but she could easily see that I was drained as I ended up sitting there tearing up and crying on and off.
I had a new meeting today and I’ve told her how I feel, that while it’s a bit of a let down going back to 2 days, I feel a lot better with two, I am happy and proud of myself for making it two days and I think it’s best I stay there for a while untill I feel I can do three days properly. It’s important to me to be able to feel happy and good about the job and not push too hard and ruin that good feeling because I want working to be something I feel good about and not crap. If I don’t feel good about it I’m just gonna end up with a lot of sick days.
So here’s hoping my boss is okay with me coming 2 days, and that I am allowed with one flexi day, so I can atleast try three days those days I feel up for it.
Sooo… Sam had his surgery before Christmas, and we thought his recovery would be about one month. One month without his beloved PC and mmo’s. We were gonna rock FFXIV together and perhaps start raiding, getting a proper FC going and all that stuffs. But that’s not how it all ended up.
He is still recovering, it’s been 2 months and he still has an open wound on his back, taking it’s time to heal. With that he has not been able to play at all and I’ve been “stuck” gaming alone.
Yes, you should take whatever I post with a grain of salt because I am back in WoW. I didn’t feel like playing FFXIV alone while Sam was sick, so I’ve been WoW’ing my ass off with my guild almost since the last post I posted and I haven’t really been keeping ya’ll updated cause I felt so stupid about saying I was done with the game, and yet I am back there.
A part of the reason I am WoW’ing is obviously because Sam cannot play with me. Other reasons are because our guild almost died. A lot of the raiders took a break or just vanished, while the socials up and left, understandably because there was not much going on since so many people vanished. Me and Sam are partly to blame for the guild almost dying because we weren’t there either, he as GuildLeader and I as one of the Officers.
Anyways, we took some drastic measures. First we tried a merger with a guild on our server, turned out that wasn’t a good one for us, our mindsets where totally different from the merger guild, and after one raid we saw very quickly that the merger was a bust.
After that at least our guild got a lot closer, those who were still there became more active, playing more, using discord more, teaming up more. And we only saw one way out to save our tiny guild from doom, that was a server transfer to Silvermoon. We did this in hopes of having an easier time to recruit then at Moonglade/The Sha’tar, which was basically a dry desert, with no hope for recruitment.
Our main goal was to get enought people to start a Mythic raiding guild, now, recruitment on Silvermoon ain’t easy either, while it’s a big server, there is also a lot of competition! Atleast we have gotten our tanks and healers, finally. It’s taking it’s time to get people, “Ranged dps, where are you?”. We only have about 14 -15 raiders on a good day, some of them, including me, not even properly geared yet.
But we have managed to clear Nighthold normal and killed 3 bosses on heroic, that with having to carry a few dps as well. So it ain’t all bad. I just think that dream some people have of mythics is far away, if even reachable with out guild. Only time will tell I guess.
Druid go Boom-Boom
Since we managed to get a duo of a tank and a healer, we ended up with a bit to many healers, and I decided – “Fuck it, I’ll just go dps” and thus the boomie was born. I haven’t played a boomkin before but, I guess that’s what I am “maining” at the moment. HOW LONG WILL THAT LAST ?!? !?!
I guess it’s kinda fun, at least in raids. I do find it annoying having to change talents so often, depending on bosses and trash etc. Didn’t really need to do that as a healer. We will see how long I last. At least I love my worgen, she’s a pretty cool lady, even with her seriously manly laugh.
I’ve been dabbling with some random battlegrounds which has been a laugh, even got her rank up to 25 or so, I kind of want to get it to 50 for prestige level for the artifact skin. Also heard you get mounts at certain levels, that’s going to be a grind though, but the daily PVP world quests help a fair deal.
Hunter go Pew-Pew
Also dabbling with my hunter that is pretty freshly dinged. Oni can play perhaps an hour a day standing up by his desk now, so I am playing my hunter while he is on his mage, which he is going to be using when he comes back properly.
We spent yesterday nuking our way through hordies in battleground, and we had a good time with that. Sam seems to be pretty good at his mage, although he just picked it up!
I’ve picked up both MM and BM artifact, seems MM got some better dps, but I actually enjoy the BM a lot more for some reason, even though people say it’s a bore and to simple, I really do enjoy the simplicity right now. Just spam your cooldowns and see your pet eat the mobs.
Anyways, time to game, Sam’s waiting.
