Pathfinder Part 1 & 2

World of Warcraft is what is on my brain right now and so that is what I will probably be talking about in this blog for a bit. Until my usual cycle of getting burned out and quitting goes into effect. Last night I made some progress on my quest to unlock flying in the…

My return to WoW so far.

I now accept my frequent changes in things I like, and have decided that me saying “never” is probably a bad idea. I said I would never go back to WoW when I went to ESO. I said even if ESO stopped being fun I was probably done with WoW. I was very sure of…

A New Outlook?

There is no denying that I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster since starting this blog, which was intended to be about my plan to build a tiny house. It derailed from that plan rather quickly and became a place where I vent all my emotional fears and frustrations, as well as any…

Lasik: Procedure & Recovery

While I would have been perfectly able to write this up the day of, or day after, my procedure, I decided to wait until I got to work on Monday. Honestly, I was lazy and I wanted to have something to distract me from work. As my regular readers will know I was very anxious…

Lasik Tomorrow

I haven’t posted much, I think it’s been over a week or more. I haven’t had much to say, to be honest. I wanted to be up front about some things. I’ve slid back down, been doing a lot of snacking and not logging it. I’ve almost gone back up to 300, though not quite….

Warcraft & Lasik

First, and most present on my mind is that next Thursday I will be getting Lasik eye surgery.  I am both terrified and excited. I hate glasses. I am going to do a quick but detailed description of the first consult that I had where they did some tests, and then after the surgery I…

New Plans?

I meant to write last week but was actually busy at work and never got around to it. I think it is safe to say that this blog is only active (as in I write almost daily) because work is kind of boring and I have free time there. I certainly don’t give over any of…

Scrivener

The blank page can feel like an insurmountable obstacle.  I have an idea for a novel, but where to begin? Out of the millions of worlds in the English language, which do I put down first? I know I cannot begin the actual writing until I have the foundation on which to begin, but where…

A book needs a title, a world needs a name.

A while back I posted the picture here and commented on how I took it. The person who posted it read it metaphorically, with the same meaning as the phrase “first day of the rest of your life.” It’s meant to convey that tomorrow is a new day, that it can be the start of…

Masquerade

Some day I will hit my goal weight. I started at 338 and am now (after my weekend of indulgence) 298. I’ve lost 40 pounds so far.  160 more to my goal of 238 and 200 pounds lost. I’ve been considering what to do to celebrate this massive achievement. At first I considered just having…

Renaissance Festival

This past weekend I went to the Renaissance Festival with Alabama Gandalf. It was quite a good time and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. We met Friday after I got out of work at the hotel. I arrived around 6:30 due to heavy traffic, turning an hour and a half drive into over two hours, and…

Getting Out, and Slipping Up

I don’t get out much. So in an effort to be a bit more sociable I asked one of my new D&D acquaintances to please feel free inviting me to board game nights. She had invited me prior but I had always turned it down. Yesterday I did quite well with my calories at first….
