I had so many plans for this weekend. I was going to be productive! Really! But mostly I played WoW and avoided looking at the giant management guide Tamara and Doug want me to read in preparation for when they try to talk the AVP into paying for my PMP course and exam.

Gaming > career. Because that's a healthy way to live.

I've been farming rep with a couple groups in Pandaria - the Tillers, Anglers, and the Order of the Cloud Serpent - which in turn helps me raise my skill levels in fishing and cooking. And, incidentally, archaeology, because one of the Cloud Serpent dailies requires that, but that meant I needed to go back to the old world and start from scratch because you can't use archaeology in Pandaria untill you're at 525. I get that archaeology gives you cool shit sometimes, and also most of the artifacts are at least a gold apiece, but it's seriously the most frustrating, awful thing to do. After, like, a solid three hours of flying all over the fucking Eastern Kingdoms, I pretty much wanted to gouge my eyes out. I've managed to go from 4 to 250-something in a super short amount of time, but dear god, it's the WORST.

But I really want that Cloud Serpent mount, so...here we are. (IT IS A SHINY YELLOW SERPENTINE DRAGON, OKAY? Everyone else has cool-ass mounts. Shut up.)

The auction house was practically empty this weekend. There was only one page of ghost iron ore up for sale, so I marked my stacks a lot lower than the rest and sold everything within an hour. I mean. I'm trying not to sell too low, because then it's not worth my time, but 90 gold/stack is nothing to scoff at. I've gotten myself back over 2k gold between auctions and dailies and the heroics we ran Sunday night, so I'm feeling pretty good about that. Uh, so good that I might have made some ridiculous pet purchases yesterday. I cannot fucking wait to level the Terrible Turnip, you have no idea.

I continue to ponder leveling one of my alts. Maybe my hunter? I do love worgens and ranged weaponry and all that, and she'd be easier to solo than my mage. IDK. I'll check out where I left her the last time I played her and see what happens. It'd be nice to have an alt at 90, but the idea of going through Outland and Northrend again is...daunting.

This weekend some friends and various internet acquaintances were at Wiscon, and the panels they live-tweeted sounded really interesting and made me jealous that I wasn't there basking in other people's intelligence. Cons aren't my thing usually (I've been to exactly two), and I get overwhelmed by masses of people pretty easily these days, but [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash tells me Wiscon sets up quiet rooms and the like? So I'm seriously considering going next year. I'm not 100% committed to it yet, but it's at least a possibility at this point.

Last night I went through my memory box and cleaned out some things that I have no particular attachment to anymore. I didn't mean to do this - I only opened it to put my recent movie ticket stubs in, but there were some things on the top that immediately made me unhappy, so I sorted through the rest. One of the things I threw out was a letter an ex-friend wrote to me during class (from the contents, I surmised that I was away in Arizona at the time). I was confused as to why I still had it, because I stopped being friends with this guy halfway through sophomore year, but reading through it made me wonder why we were ever friends with him to begin with. I had to text Ashley about it, naturally, and we shared a what the actual fuck, younger selves? moment.

I also found my high school yearbook photo. Good golly, my hair was long when I was 18. Oh, and I guess I still had some other things left over from high school in there? Which found their way into the trash, too. Ain't nobody got time for that shit.

Going to try to make some progress on at least one writing project tonight. I'm still avoiding the big bang for now, so I'm not entirely sure what else I want to work on. Quick, someone decide for me!

Back to work, I guess. :(

<3!

Cons are one of my great passions, but the really big ones would overwhelm the hell out of me. I don't think I'll ever be able to do SDCC or even Wizard World Chicago because the sheer number of people is scary! But small ones are the bomb!

All of my high school year books have been lost :( Actually, I'm mostly ok with that really. I hated HS anyway so I don't think paging through them would be very much fun. But I kinda wish I still had my senior yearbook.

Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Yeah, Otakon stressed me out so much the time I went that I left early. Wicked Faire is infinitely smaller, and I only went Friday night/Saturday, so I managed it better. Wiscon, with its quiet rooms and such, sounds like something I could definitely handle. :D

I can't remember if I threw out my senior yearbook or not. I probably did. High school was terrible, and my anxiety goes into overdrive when I think about my ex-friends, so it's for the best.

I hope your week is great, too! <3

AHAHAHAHA OH GOD. Well...your gold went to a good home? And helped me buy a Terrible Turnip? :D?

Scott posted some levelling/gear tips in Maeldun's Angels for ret pallies. Thought you might like.
