WoW mostly

I’ve been in a gaming mood lately, which is unusual for me. I’ve managed to level 2 times in the last week, which sounds lame but the gap from 85-86 and 86-87 is a hefty one to cross. I’m now only 3 levels away from cap, which is really exciting. I’m very much a mood gamer – restraint isn’t usually an issue for me, as when I generally game it’s only for an hour or two until I get bored. Occasionally I’ll have periods, like this/last week and a few weeks over the summer, where I just feel like playing to my hearts content and find the whole experience enjoyable (if I were to push myself to do that, I’d have an hour of fun, and then just be bored).

I’m finally in Pandaria, which is beautiful. It’s obvious that Blizzard put a lot of effort into it – and it’s better than when I tested it in Beta last spring. I love being somewhat immersed in story lines when I’m on these gaming kicks, and that’s what makes it fun for me.

Anyway, I’ve been gaming extensively for the last week and a half. I forgot where this was going other than to maybe prove and remind myself that I’m allowed to indulge and game all I want when I feel like I want to – it happens so rarely that there’s no need to be judgey about it. Then, when I’m done, I can go back to being a responsible adult.

But for however long this lasts, I’m going to continue to run around, pick flowers, defeat beasts, and fly on kites.

Fun Stuff

I hit level 75 in WoW today, finally! I’ve been super super awful about playing lately, so today I decided to just do that instead of sitting at my computer debating about doing that, story boarding, or making the bed and spending the whole time flicking through facebook, etsy, pinterest, and random blogs until I came to a conclusion. Yeah, that’s usually what happens when I can’t decide what to do next.

Also, our new, bigger, muslin green-screen and clamps and lens cleaner came in today! so I expect that I’ll be spending the evening playing with the green screen and maybe doing some more storyboarding.

Etsy

Yesterday I launched the 2nd painting in my Thing-A-Week promo. So far it’s all watercolors that I’ve painted before and wasn’t sure about listing. I’ve been wanting to list them, but just didn’t know how to introduce them, but then I started the Thing-A-Week, and it just seemed perfect, so this weeks watercolor painting is Blue Shadows.

 New Look

You might have noticed, also, that I changed some things on the front page. I created a logo, favicon, and updated the banner. I also redesigned my etsy banner and profile images – finally. Last night I was finally able to get a copy of Fireworks CS3 running on my macbook pro. I’ve been trying for ages but it never actually worked – until last night. So I spent all evening updating my banners and such and enjoying playing with that again. It looks sooooo much better than before.

Reading

I finished Faerie Wars the other day and started The Last Unicorn. Faerie wars was amazing and I can’t wait to get the other books from the library. I’m a little over half-way through The Last Unicorn, and at first it wasn’t as interesting, but then I ended up spending all of yesterday afternoon glued to the pages. I have a lot of ideas and new images for when I start painting again. I’ve taken a break, unintentionally – moving furniture around has some of my painting-ness a little discombobulated. I need to find another corner for my easel.
