Lifeless Update — September 10, 2014

Lifeless Update

Lifeless, why lifeless? Well that is how I feel with so much work. I went back to school to take my last two classes in my Bachelor’s program, so that has kept me away from WoW for a bit. I now hardly sleep at night and go to work at 2 am rather than 4 am. This party is getting closer and closer, that I am so excited I will have a whole week off from my other part-time job. Today may be the actual first day that I will be playing some Warcraft, but I still don’t know if to tend to my wonderful farm or just delve myself into Warlords Beta. I have to figure it out because in the next week and a half, I am going to play the heck out of it, since I start class again soon. Ah yes, I can’t forget that I am getting Warlords Collector’s Edition, so that is going to be fun having all of the music and the art. I guess this is it for now, until I have a better view of Warlords from the Beta. 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read and say hey on Twitter!

Update Post

Hello and welcome everyone! 

I have been quite busy with this party that we are having for my daughter’s 15th bday. We opened up a business to clean restaurants and waking up at 4 am to go do that job has been a bit tiring. That’s in addition to our regular jobs. This coming week we start all the practices for the party and well I am let’s say pooped! I do play WoW on days that I don’t have to go to my regular job and I am starting class soon. I can’t wait to finish this Bachelor’s Degree that I have put on hold for the past year and a half. Well going back to WoW, I have been working on raising the rep for the Water Strider mount with The Anglers and I have also been doing old content with the guildies for my main Martiinna. The next 90 is going to be Jazzminz on Thrall, I need to get her up there so that I can raid with the guildies in Trauma II!

 

As soon as I have more to write about I will do so!

For now…….see you soon!

Lifeless Update — June 11, 2014

Lifeless Update

Hello everyone!

I have been a really bad girl. I have not been writing in my blog, since there is not much to talk about now. I have not been playing any of my games too much since I started working and then my husband decided to get a contract cleaning a couple of restaurants. So now I wake up anytime from 3 am to 5 am to clean one of the restaurants on a daily basis and then get home to sleep and by the time I wake up, I don’t feel like playing anymore. While at my other job, I love watching Let’s WoW Podcast on Twitch.tv, Sunday nights, or even Game Of Thrones since it is the latest show that I have been watching. Oh yes, and catching up to Doctor Who Season 7, I believe I am on episode 5….so it has been a bit busy in my life. Kids are finally out for summer vacation and my daughter is finally headed to high school. 

About a month ago or so, I was watching the Child’s Play 24 hour stream by EpicPodcast, and watching Rho from Realm Maintenance, Joe aka Wowmartiean, and MissMedicakes among others was awesome. They had some awesome giveaways and I got away with like four wins…lol. I love those guys and gals that make my week awesome while watching their podcasts or play time stream. I have been trying to stream some of my game play as well, but I am too shy to show people how I really play. When I do get a chance to play, I have been leveling up my Monk, or trying to get my Druid some gear in Timeless Isle. 

Thank you for reading my little silly blog, and see you on Twitter…lots of love to all and please if you are a gamer, either casual or on a more traditional/24 hour type play, if you have not added your name to The Virtual Identity Federation Website, do so as soon as you can!

The Liebster Awards! Such an honor! — April 11, 2014

The Liebster Awards! Such an honor!

On March 27, 2014, Mama Needs Mana blogger, Nerisanda nominated me and eleven other bloggers for a Liebster Award. She was also nominated by another blogger Amanda from Geekphoria. I got very happy when Neri nominated me because I have never been nominated for anything (other than doing house work…lol) in my life and I really felt that some of my twitter followers actually cared of what I wrote.

liebster2

So what is a Liebster Award? Let the Liebster people explain:

“Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It’s a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer.”

And now to answer the questions Neri asked me…tun, tun, tun:

What inspired you to start blogging?

Other bloggers inspired me to write about my crazy happenings in WoW and in my crazy life as a mother to teenagers. Although I don’t post much about them, they have their own little crazy stuff they put me through.

If you won a free ticket to Blizzcon, what panels would you be most excited about seeing?

Wow, if I won a free ticket to Blizzcon…I would visit all of the panels. I have wanted to go to Blizzcon for the past five or six years and I would be amazed at all the sections that I can go through in two days.

How do you balance time in-game with your ‘RL’ commitments?

Well this is pretty difficult, because now since I have a night time job I have to measure my game time carefully. My kids know not to bother me when I am playing unless it is an emergency and I am not in a dungeon or raid. My husband on the other hand doesn’t know when to bug me and doesn’t care if I am in a raid or dungeon, ‘cause he is not a gamer. But I always manage to get everything done.

If World of Warcraft shut down its servers tomorrow (Or you aren’t currently playing), what would you be playing instead?

I guess I would be playing League of Legends. It is the only other game that I enjoy playing when I am not on World of Warcraft.

Are there any bloggers out there who you aspire to be like? What is it about them that you love?

Nerisanda and Rinike are bloggers I would aspire to be like. Their blogs are awesome and I would give anything to write as well as they do. They also know what they are talking about unlike me…lol!

Are you brave enough to show us your gaming set up?

Nope! Why? Because it is a terrible mess; papers hanging from everywhere, cords, booze, and other unnecessary items hanging about.

At what age would you let your children (Real or hypothetical) start playing video games?

My son was five years old when we bought him a Sega Dreamcast, that then we upgraded to a PSOne, and then a PS2. Now he is 16 going on 17, and has his own account on WoW, League of Legends, and Xbox 360.

You have a weekend of interruption free gaming ahead of you. What essential supplies do you stock up on to get you through it?

I have to stock lots of food and water or maybe soda (who knows), a cushion for my tushy, and a good repertoire of music.

If you could pick any job in the gaming industry, what would it be?

Definitely a beta tester, I wouldn’t mind playing games while getting paid. I was always a sucker for games. You think the Dreamcast and all the other consoles were for my son? Those were for me to play all night long!

Have you ever done any gaming cosplay?

Nope.

What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever seen done in an MMO or multi-player game?

Naked bodies all over Goldshire! That had made my day, since I was always getting ganked.    🙂

Nominations go to:

My nominations for this award go to:

I have nominated each and everyone of you because you are all really great! I hope that you all are as excited as I was when I found out about the awards.

Ready for your questions?

  1. If you were trapped in Azeroth, which character would you like to be?
  2. Why did you start your blog?
  3. What is/was the craziest thing you have done in your life?
  4. If you were to choose a theme to cosplay, what would it be?
  5. Have you been to Blizzcon, what was your favorite moment there?
  6. What is your favorite show?
  7. What other games do you like to play?
  8. Android or Apple? Why?
  9. What is your favorite book/book series?
  10. If you were to help someone in need, how would you help them?
  11. If you could change something about yourself, what would you change?

Good luck, have fun, and I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Almost There! — April 10, 2014

Almost There!

Hello everyone!

Hope that when you read this post, you are all doing well!

I have been a little busy putting in some game time and trying to get some good gear to end the season with in WoW! I have also downloaded a new game which is Smite and I, as of now (while writing this post), am downloading Diablo III! Also IRL stuff has been happening so I’ve been pretty busy and…….

I would like to personally thank https://twitter.com/nerisanda for nominating me for a Liebster! I will be answering my own questions and nominating some peeps of my own soon, so be on the lookout!

First off, IRL stuff…I am now working five days at my husband’s job for a few hours at night. Some good money making there…lol! I get home so tired that I sometimes don’t feel like playing or doing anything at all. I have almost completed my friend’s baby her booties and I am now making the bows to tie to the front. Otherwise, I have been doing okay and trying to keep this good stuff going.

Now to talk about almost being there…My dear little hunter as you see in the previous post, is almost pretty much geared. I have been working on Raid Gear as well as Season 15 gear. It has not been easy, but the feeling of being there when Garrosh Hellscream was brought down, was so rewarding. This was my actual first time running some endgame Raids. I am pretty amazed at how difficult it was for all the other raid members to kill this guy. Hard to admit that I died twice, but still was part of an amazing team! So I joined my friend’s boyfriend guild and we are setting up some teams for raids, dungeons, and challenges. Wow, Challenge modes, I never thought that I was ever going to be ready for challenge mode with my guild!

Finally, my first Horde toon is 90! The new task will be to gear her up the same or maybe better than Martiinna! It takes a lot of patience, but since the guild I am in at this time is in hiatus…I have to search for a better guild in The Venture Co., Any ideas?

Well this is it for now, since I have so many things to do. Hopefully next blog I can talk about how it’s going on Smite and Diablo III? Of course, after the Liebster Award!

What I’ve Been Up To — March 14, 2014

What I’ve Been Up To

First of all, Hello and Thank You for taking the time to read my idiot rants about my life!

     I have been a busy person trying to keep my life in check. To those of you who have read my previous posts, I have mended my issues with my husband. I am finally so close to getting a job, although on the weekends I do a little part time, I enjoy the fact that I can watch my friends on Twitch while they are streaming. I call them my friends because they are! They are awesome, wonderful people that I have grown to love, even when they are ranting about the oddest things.

      I have also been doing some crochet projects with my daughter, and we are really considering opening an Etsy account to sell them. I don’t know, maybe I shall get your opinions on it! I have not been playing World of Warcraft, League of Legends, or Hearthstone much because of the crocheting. I have one more that I want to do for a friend, baby booties for her newborn. 

     Even though I have not played, I have been able to get a few achievements, the Hearthsteed, and a few Battle Pets as well. Finally my Tauren Druid is 83 and almost at 84! I have not done any BG’s with this one, but I guess when I get to 90, I will have plenty of time to do so. She is a Balance Druid and I like healing myself, but not others. I feel like I will derp when I heal others so, I consider myself more DPS. I am really glad that Pre-Order for Warlords of Draenor is up, but unfortunately I want to get the box set and I am waiting to hear from the @Warcraft devs to know if they will have them. 

     I shall continue my questing to get to 90 and then I will be doing other things like, leveling professions and doing dungeons and battlegrounds in the weeks to come. Thank you for everything guys!!!

 

Life after New Year’s — February 3, 2014

Life after New Year’s

     So it’s been a bit crazy around here in my life. Last time I suspected the husband cheating and we had a long talk and he says no, should I believe him, gee I don’t know. Since then it got so bad that I have been going crazy applying for jobs left and right while loosing myself in World Of Warcraft; my escape from real life problems. Still the whole issue of him not cheating has ruined things enough, that sometimes we can’t even have a conversation without fighting. Right now, things look like they are all fine and shiny, but inside I feel like there is nothing there anymore and I am holding it together for the kids. Yes, I know that I shouldn’t be in it for the kids, but just a couple of more years; I keep telling myself. But enough with that…now some WoW!

     I have leveled up my Druid which I had left at 68 and is now 76. The Monk is 64 and a Warlock that is 13, which I am putting on standby for now until I hit 90 on the Druid. I have made some awesome friends on Twitter and I hope that it keeps going because this community is the best! All of them are worth following and I feel blessed that they are part of my Internet life. To those of you that actually read this blog, I thank you! Thank you because my life can get boring and you are still reading! Those that don’t…it’s okay, I don’t hold it against anyone of you. Same love!

Until next time!

New Year’s 10 days later… — January 11, 2014

New Year’s 10 days later…

Hello everyone!

I have not posted much since I was going through a rough situation, as being afraid of finding out that my partner, my friend, my husband was cheating. I am happy to say that I think whatever he was planning on doing…I messed it up for him and made him realize that I am not to be fooled with. I try to keep a lot of things to myself and that is what has led me to being away from all of my usual activities. I need to loose myself in my games, since it is the only time that I am not thinking of all the problems that I may be going through. I have been asked to be an admin for a FB page and I have been thinking about it a lot. Who knows, maybe you will see more of me on the net soon enough. I have been taking classes to take two of the most important exams which are Network+ and A+. I have been looking for a job since I can’t stand being without cash anymore. This has all happened in the past 10 days. 

Take care all and see you around!
