A Shaman Loses Focus

I've been staring at my cursor flashing on this blank page now for almost 20 minutes. It just keeps blinking, on, off, on, off, on, off, on….

The problem is, I don't know what to write about. I know I should contribute something to this blog. It's been almost a full week sense my last post. Yet I can't find anything inside of me to write about.

Warcraft has kept me very entertained over the last week. Well, not entertained per say, but it has kept me busy. I've managed to accumulate almost 2,500 gold (that's a first for me) but it wasn't done in any grand fashion. I simply kept buying low and selling high or vendoring items that people have listed too low.

I was able to finally reach level 60 on Shammy Davis (yay), but even that accomplishment felt lack luster. All I did was quest and grind the whole way from level one to level 60.

Level 60 should be a big deal shouldn't it? I mean it's the end of the original content. My total time played so far is just over four days and I haven't used any heirloom items nor have I used the dungeon finder. It's been a solo grind all the way to 60 and maybe that's what's wrong. I'm feeling very melancholy about the process. I'm… dare I say it… I'm BORED!

Phew, that feels good to say. HOLY CRAP I'M BORED! YAY, shout it from the roof tops.

This is nobodies fault but my own. However, sometimes I feel like I'd rather rub my ass with a cheese grater and sit in a bowl of vinegar than grind another bitchy harpy. I think I need to mix things up a bit. Now that I am in the Outlands, maybe I need to start using the dungeon finder. Maybe, simply being in the Outlands will help change my attitude. Let's think about the changes that are happening in my young shamans' life.

Shammy is going to learn to fly… sweet!

The gear drop is incredible compared to what I had in vanilla… nice!

Experience gained comes is greater amounts… cool!

The gold drops are better… super!

So there's a lot of nerdrific things to look forward to, I just need to catch my breath for a minute before I muddle through the next 20 levels. So, here's the plan. I'm going to take a couple of days off from smoking Warcrack and enjoy real life. Then next week I will come back ready for more. This is after all just a game and in the great words of someone much smarter than I;
