Today is my nine months on T anniversary! 111021 36 Weeks
And on an unrelated note, I am super excited for Star Wars: The Old Republic, which comes out in a couple of months. I’ll be joining up with at least one of my old WoW friends, maybe even more (I just came out to a couple of them, which seems to have gone well). I’m very psyched to be gaming with them again, and the game itself looks incredible! Though now I am faced with the tough choice of Jedi Guardian Defense vs. Jedi Sentinel Combat vs. Jedi Sentinel Watchman. Choosing a class is making my head spin a bit and, in case you have never played an MMORPG, it is a very important decision which will determine my role in the group and how easy/hard it is for me to find groups. Extremely important life issues, I know.
There were a few other classes that looked interesting, but when I really think about it, how can I say no to a lightsaber? The answer is: I can’t. Lightsabers are awesome. I have been dreaming about having a lightsaber since the very first time I saw Star Wars, and this is most likely the closest I will ever come. So badass.
I’m very psyched to have the experience of playing a game from launch (or actually a bit before launch). Aion (another MMORPG) I jumped in a bit late, I don’t remember how much. I missed most of what is now called “Vanilla WoW” in World of Warcraft. Though I was playing for part of vanilla, I was way too distractable to reach level-cap (which I didn’t manage until Wrath of the Lich King – oops), so I didn’t see much of the game. It is definitely a unique experience that gives you a particular perspective on the game, having seen all of the ups and downs. It will also be a lot of fun to start a guild with my friends (assuming we end up doing it), instead of just following a group of people around from guild to guild.
Getting back in touch with my old guildies has put me in a good mood, despite some other parts of my life not being fantastic right now (I am sick and had to take the semester off from school). It is weird to think I have known some of these people for longer than I have known some of my closest friends. They are certainly an indelible part of my life and I’m glad to have another chance to hang out with them, so to speak. Especially now that I can really be myself.
Just for fun…
