I really don’t want to give up on this blog yet, so I came up with a little plan for it. Instead of always posting lengthy blog posts, I thought that I might as well post screenshots on certain days or just pictures of things that I find interesting.

Again, it’s been ages since I’ve posted here and I would love to blame it on being really busy, but I’m really not. I’m very lazy and I envy bloggers who can churn out so many posts on a weekly base. I’m not like that. I’m not even sure if I could even do that, but then again I might find more enjoyment once I start posting more things. Who knows?

Anyhow,  I was thinking of updating my blog during the week with the following things:

Monday – WoW levelling projects

Tuesday – Screenshot day

Wednesday – What game has caught my eye?

Thursday – Random picture of something that interests me

Friday – Random topic

I’m not doing anything on Saturday or Sunday. Mostly because on Sunday I’m prepping for the podcast and again, I’m lazy *smirks*

So tomorrow I’ll talk a bit about my levelling project in wow and for those interested in my other podcast project…. well, I’m just not happy enough with it. So putting it on the cooler for now and I might pick it up in the new year.

Hard work pays off it seems. After a week of working my ass of with Jillian Michaels and her 30 day shred and starting week 1 of c25k, I can already notice a difference in my stamina. I also kept tracking my calories and nutrition and it all paid off. I’ve lost 5lbs in my first week.

I am really over the moon with this. Now a week ago I would have said I only cared about the pounds flying off, but working out has done something strange to me. This morning I did my third run on c25k. Now how this programme works is as following: you warm up, and then you run for 60 seconds and after that a brisk walk for 90 seconds, rinse and repeat. At the beginning of the week I did reasonably ok. I couldn’t finish every run, but it didn’t bother me. I was just starting out. However, Wednesday I did really badly. I only could finish 2 runs of the 8 I had to do. I was so disappointed with myself. This morning however, I only had 2 of the 8 runs that I couldn’t do completely. It’s been such a long time that I’ve been so proud of myself. I’m finding it more and more important to actually also look at my health instead of just the weight. I’ve always wanted to be a runner, but I never saw it happening. After this morning, I finally believe that with patience and time I might actually run by the end of the year for 45 minutes in a row.

Now because of all of this it’s been a bit quiet on the gaming front. I guess I got a bit of a burn out with WoW. I have those now and again and I’m sure that in a few weeks I’ll be happily grinding along, gaining levels on my toons. I’ve been thinking of making a druid my main. Now I always thought that would be my nelf who has been my main forever in Vanilla, tbc and wrath, but lately I’m wondering if perhaps I should switch to horde as my main side. Not sure and I need to ponder about this idea for a while.

And my last geeky news: I got a paint station for my Warhammer models. I have two big armies (woodelves and Chaos Daemons) and I should really finish both. At least with this paint station I can move everything around when I need my desk free, but still keep it all together. See that big dragon on the station; yeah I’m making that big boy my main project! I’ll keep updates on this blog about how he’s coming along. 

I seriously get too obsessed when there’s a holiday in game.

I’m probably not the first and I most certainly won’t be the last person giving my opinion about the new Pandaren female model. In short, I’m happy with it. She looks cute, but not overly sexy. She might not be as big and round as some people hoped, but at least she’s not (as I like to call it) a pair of melons on a stick. I love what they did with her hair and I can’t wait to get a cute bun with chopsticks on my future characters.

After falling in love with the new female Pandaren model, I have the following list in my head for characters on Argent Dawn:

  • Tauren Shaman (who might be race changed into a panda, she’s already level 58)
  • Nightelf Mage (might also change her into a panda)
  • Nightelf and Tauren Druid (both with different specs: cat/bear and moonkin/resto)
  • Troll Warlock
  • Dreanai Warrior
  • Dreanai Hunter
  • Bloodelf Rogue
  • And two Pandarian Monks!

All female characters. I will not be playing a Paladin or a Deathknight on this server. I don’t mind the Paladin class that much, but I’d prefer to have two Druids. Who knows, if the monk class isn’t that great I might get a Paladin after all. When it comes to the Monks I will put them on Horde and Alliance. Lets see how that works out.

Looking at the glyph changes for druids, I will also be levelling a glyphmaker. I think my two Druids will be good candidates for that.

Now with all of this, I am still looking for a fun guild on Argent Dawn. Though there is a contest coming up where we are starting a guild for the Podcast and podcast listeners. With some luck that guild will grow into a wonderful home!
