It’s the end of the year. Literally, the end of the year. December 31, 2017.
As a blogger, this is when I’m supposed to talk about how great/poor my year was and how stoked I am for the next year. Everybody’s got ’em going up, so I should probably do the same. Since this is primarily a World of Warcraft blog, I’ll focus on that.
In 2017, I’m stoked/thankful for:
- Going to Blizzcon. Seriously, I got to hang out with some cool people and meet awesome folks I normally would never have had the opportunity to see in person. I got to chat with Bajheera and Jen, shake hands with Reckles from WTB Gold, and have drinks with Thorn and Thyst from Lagging Balls. I even got to hang out with Pat Krane for a bit.
- Order Hall Gold. Without this, I wouldn’t have been able to pay for my subscription and make some character changes. Between this and the Legion app, I’ve been able to “play” without even logging into WoW.
That’s pretty much it. Normally I would have tried to invent things in World of Warcraft to keep me interested, but there were more things outside the game that piqued my interest. I’ve lost interest with the whole storyline playing out in the game, and what’s coming in the next expansion is going to be more of the same.
What does that mean for 2018? Will I keep playing World of Warcraft? Of course I will. I’m still working on my Ironman Challenge character, and grinding out that gold. Depending on how my other interests develop, WoW may go on the backburner in order for my dreams to come true. Stuff like that.
Now for some motivation. Congrats, you survived 2017! Hope you have a great 2018!
Happy New Year!
