Feeling the Blues
Was my day off from work today. Tried to play some WoW. Logged in for a while, just stared into the Mailbox, AH, and the Bank for what seem to be forever doing stuff. Emptying my mail box of sold stuff, listed some more stuff on AH. Dealt with some guild stuff, a little player drama and somehow that just seemed to stretch the time out from there. I tried but just didn’t feel like questing either.
I don’t know what it is lately that seem to be afflicting me on a mental level playing the game of its really the game itself at all. But playing WoW has been a daily event for me. As of today I’ve played WoW everyday for 6 months straight, with the exception of that one week in April I had to go to Florida for a conference for several days. Everyday I’ve completed a few quests, some days it was a level or two. Much of WoW I’ve played as a ghost or in the Dark Matter of WoW. Just playing the game but never really seen or heard. Someone playing in plain sight of others but yet your don’t seem to be there. Your just cruising through the game almost unseen with exception to the time you intervene and save someone only to disappear back into the shadows moments later. Playing a game that’s a multiplayer game and for all you know often you seem to be the only player in the game as you know it. A purple popup message or a quick trip to a major city often confirms that you not alone in this game and that your not a ghost. Such had been the tales of that long 6 months of playing WoW.
leveling to 70 has been a long haul, almost there. Has been fun the whole way. But I don’t know if its just me, the last few days or I’m just feeling tired. Not tired of the game, just tired of the everyday effort just playing the game. Physically or Mentally tired. Maybe I need a vacation from work, a vacation from life as i know it maybe, maybe its the guild that’s wearing on me putting in the effort there. Hell knows it can be a headache to deal with. I do have other things to do or can do. But I’ve been playing WoW mentally at work! I’m thinking of it all the time. I’m usually not sleeping well and in my sleep I’m dreaming actually playing WoW. Let alone playing the game itself. Maybe I’m having a WoW overload.
I’ve missed watching a bit of History Channel or Discovery Channel or reading a book. My X-Box and PlayStation has been on deep freeze. These days I just read blogs mostly. Sometimes its a fun as learning and playing the game to read stuff in blogs. 5 more levels and I can say I did it, i’ve reached the elusive level cap and didn’t take me 2 years playing around with Alts. Yet it seems like forever to get there. But somehow I know I’m feeling the Blues and not sure why!
