New Years. Well it’s here! Did you stay up for it? Did I?
HELL NO! I’m old, remember?
I don’t drink. I don’t party. I have a family and that’s who I’d rather be with anyway. Aww sentimental, I know.
Anyway, I didn’t mean to fall asleep, but I just had to lay down for a little while and next thing you know it’s 6am. /shrug
Recapping the Old
So looking back, what did I do last year? Well lots of things.
First, I reflected back on 2008 and all the drama that unfortunately brought with it. Looking back this really started to foreshadow how the beginning of my year was going to be.
Being an officer at the beginning of the year, my blog was a lot about guild leadership. It was constantly on my mind. One of the biggest things we had problems with was how to motivate members which ironically continues to be a really hot topic and my post continues to gets hits on a daily basis. Sadly I probably didn’t give the answer everyone was hoping for, but the answer is still the same.
I also talked about other things like gquitting, started my Newbie Raider Guides of which one ended up being quite popular, and after several rants, burnout, etc. I finally posted a farewell to my guild.
In June, my shaman started to become my “main”. *grumble…heroism whores…grumble*
Then somewhere along the line I got asked to be an officer again and apparently absence breeds stupidity because shortly thereafter I remembered why I shouldn’t be an officer. I don’t hate it as I enjoy being a part of the process. I’m very opinionated and who doesn’t like to be heard? And now that Amber’s GM I feel it necessary to provide that buffer between her and the rest of them. Seriously! It’s scary! ROFL!
Looking Forward 2010
Holy crap! Is it really 2010?! I remember when 1999 was never going to happen because it was so far off!
Yeah, yeah. Shut your trap! So I’m old! Don’t make me beat you with my cane!
What am I looking forward to?
- Killing Arthas
- Leveling the other 5 classes
- Cataclysm – let’s face it, I’m curious. But here’s advanced warning, Amber. I may quit raiding. We’ll see.
But if there’s one thing I’m looking forward to more than anything else, it’s hanging out with the friends I’ve made in my guild (in no particular order): Amber, Zoja, Mach, Atropus, Evis, Rivs, Cel, Myss, Hunt, Kotakh, Missbubbles, Wolvarine, Oasic, Phase, Pyxy (if she ever comes out of hiding), Welgar, El, and Zuki appears to have returned too.
Now if I can just avoid getting angry enough to quit…
