10 Years, 10 Questions

Over on twitter today, @RhoWoW suggested people participate in @Alternativechat‘s 10 Years, 10 Questions writing… thing (challenge? exercise?? event?!?). It seems like a cool thing to do to reflect on the last however many years I’ve played WoW and write about it. Plus, it gets me blogging/writing. Something I’ve been struggling with for awhile now.

The Long Journey Home

It’s been nearly a year since I posted a blog post. That’s not to say the 20+ posts in Drafts doesn’t mean I didn’t want to say something. I wanted to talk about what happened with my guild, the one that fell apart, which, for the most part has just sort of blown over and Read More

The Big(ger) Picture

When thinking of the big picture, there’s so much that comes to mind for me. Especially because there’s been a lot of stuff going on with the guild, with my life, with recruitment, with friendships, with everything and I’m not always flawless at keeping the lines drawn between all of these things. Every now and Read More

Not everyone has a mother

Trigger Warning: mental abuse, suicide, family issues. This isn’t a game related post. So for those of you who are here hoping for something fun, or even slightly funny, related to WoW or other game, you might want to move along. This isn’t one of those posts. This post is deeply personal. I talk about Read More

Would it surprise you to know…

This is one of those posts that I often wish I’d never actually sit down to write. I think about it often, especially each time I experience racism or blatant discrimination and stereotyping based on the way I look, talk, or dress. However, this is a really personal thing, and the point of it isn’t Read More

Random Acts of Kindness

Twitter has been full of a helluva lot of negativity lately. A lot of people are pointing blame-fingers at each other. A lot of people are acting like assholes to each other. A lot of people are telling each other what to do, how to feel, and what’s appropriate behavior. A lot of people are Read More

A Place to Call Home

There is something about finding a group of people to play WoW with. A group of people who have fun, and enjoy themselves, while killing shit. The big thing, though, is that you have to actually feel welcome there. Like you’re part of the group. When I left Apotheosis it was because it stopped feeling Read More

To Mend a Broken Heart

I alluded to things in my personal life not going too well recently. Especially with regard to The Boy, who is not The Boy anymore, but maybe he’ll just be known as He Who Must Not Be Named (thanks to Jed). I’ve been told I’m handling the situation well, all things considered. That I had Read More

Not Particularly Good at This

I’m never going to be particularly good at writing about games. I’ve been re-reading Stephen King’s On Writing, and there’s something I’ve learned about myself recently… I’m not very good at writing about games. Look, I’m good at playing WoW, mostly. I enjoy playing it. I have my complaints as well as those things I Read More
