athra: ([Firefly] thrilling heroics)
So, I made that blog that I was talking about making in my last post. After some discussion with [ profile] imthelobster, I didn't actually buy a domain, but am just hosting it on Wordpress for the moment. If I actually keep up with it, I'll get the domain later (I did settle on a name I would want for it, anyway) and just figure out how to integrate Wordpress into it, which should be loads of fun! Anyway, it's here if you're interested.

idk, but to be honest even if no one reads it ever, I think it's good for me. It's a small step, but it's a step towards feeling creative again. I haven't felt that way in a long time, and I miss it.

Which, on that note, I actually wrote something the other morning. Fictional something, I mean. It's short, incomplete, probably wildly stupid, and full of ashley-and-lisa-have-brains-on-crack, BUT none of that is the point. The point is that I wrote something, and it felt good. I might even continue to work on it, even if [ profile] barbed_whispers is the only one who would find it interesting hahaha.

I've been taking a step back from playing WoW for the last week, two weeks, or so. I'm not quitting the game entirely by any means, but just separating myself from it a little bit. I'll be honest, it mostly started because of [ profile] imthelobster, but it has been really good for me, I think. I've been feeling a lot better about life in general for the last couple weeks. To be clear, I don't think that WoW was causing my depression, but I do believe now that it was enabling it to some extent. I've changed a few other things, too, so it's not the only fix, but it's been one of them, and yeah, it's been good. I feel a bit more a part of the world than I have in a while, which is strange, but nice.

Work has been better, too. I can't decide if it's better because I've been more relaxed and happy, or if I'm more relaxed and happy partly because it's better. I guess it doesn't really matter which one, because the point is, both things are true! I still hate the hours, a lot, but at least I'm not hating the job itself nearly as much, which is a huge step up, so I'll take it.

On a final note: one other change that has been happening is the way that I eat (again, mostly facilitated by [ profile] imthelobster). It's not a diet, really, just a watching portions / type of food you eat, kind of a thing. I'm still eating the things I like, just being a bit smarter about it. I still have a long way to go in that regard, since I tend to have very little willpower when it comes to food (or most anything, if I'm being honest), BUT small steps. And I have lost about 5 pounds or so, so yay for that!

So. My inbox was exploded this morning.

Huge image under the cut! cut. )

That's a huge achievement for me in the game. :)
athra: ([misc] trees are cool)
I started to post an entry that was entirely wow-related, but really, almost no one on my flist gets it. So instead:

a small rant will go under this cut text )


So, [ profile] elleren arrives tomorrow. For those of you that don't know, that's [ profile] imthelobster's dad. Ahh! I keep thinking that the house is not nearly ready enough :( Which is probably dumb, but WHATEVS I am allowed to be worried about this sort of thing!
athra: ([wow] pvp)
Urgh, I hate PvP. ([ profile] sffl I don't know how you do it)
At least, I hate it on my mage... I'm tempted to start taking my priest through and being all healy in BGs and see how I feel about that. But first... enough marks for my first war mount vbnjsnlkv. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHICH ONE I WILL GET! Either the horse or the kitty, but I can't decide.
HERE HELP ME: this or this?
Also I used to love Arathi Basin and now I hate it, whyyyyyyyyyyy. (But strangely enough, I like Warsong Gulch. DO NOT JUDGE ME.)

Okay. More PvP nao.
athra: ([Firefly] session 416)
My morning thus far:

* [ profile] buildyourwalls totally burned herself. You guys, I am not the person to have help you with injuries. I have nothing, I know nothing, I am useless.
* Watching the end of Love Actually. NFCNLKNLK THAT MOVIE MAKES ME HAPPY.
* Half-ass watching Donnie Darko. It's on in the background, and I've never seen it before. I really should actually watch it at some point, though. I have NO IDEA what it going on right now, heh.
* Working on Loremaster in WoW. Blegh. Getting bored, and kind of frustrated, with that.

So, [community profile] thefulcrum has an awesome tutorial over on LJ (here) about making Mixit layouts from LJ work here on Dreamwidth. This is awesome! I'm now using one of her layouts here on my Dreamwidth, which makes me a happy person. The hardest part about it was deciding which of her layouts to use, hahaha. Actually I'm not sure I'll stick with this one, but I might -- I like it, it's bright and cheery and puts me into a good mood. Might be too pink despite that, though, unfortunately.

Anyway, yay!

and now for WoW ramblings... )

randomness with screencaps inside )

There's only three because I am at work and I r dum and didn't upload anymore before leaving for work. :(

Aaaaand okay, done with the completely random entry now. >.>
athra: ([wow] damn the horde!)
My stomach does not feel well today. :(
I think it's because of the coffee I had. I should've known better, honestly.

Created a comm at Dreamwidth. [community profile] getaway_machine. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet, and I admit I snagged it because, even though I changed my username on this site, I didn't want anyone else to have it, either. >.> What can I say?
I may use it for pictures, or something? If I actually start taking pictures again, heh. Which I should, so who knows?

On a random aside, I want more interesting tags on dreamwidth than I have on lj. meh.


In a development that will be a shock to very few, I've been playing a lot of WoW lately. Guild is progressing through the new raid content, which is awesome. And I got my croc pet yesterday! WOOOHOOOOO! I've only been trying for that thing for months now. And the Argent tournament is so much fun. Hey, [personal profile] weesaw! I get to be a knight! So there :P :P

Now if only I could get that sea turtle to appear...

I dunno. WoW is a good escape from the real world for me, and I'm still enjoying it a lot. Usually I lose interest in games pretty quickly, but I think WoW keeps mine because it keeps changing, and because I'm interacting with other people, not just a computer game.

I guess in a lot of ways it's just another part of the internet to be addicted to. Lord knows I've been addicted to some part of the internet or another since I was, what, eleven years old? A damn long time, now.


So, they installed Sonic Wall at work, to help with virus protection (since on of the computers here is completely fried with viruses) and to block a bunch of websites. When the boss left today I decided to see what I could get to and what I couldn't... LJ works, Dreamwidth works, my email works, guild website works, twitter works... Facebook and MySpace have definitely been blocked, but I never use MySpace and only rarely use Facebook, so I'm pretty set. I know BossMan said he wasn't done with the settings on it, but still, seems like it won't be too bad.
The other girls at work are crying over the loss of Facebook though, hahaha.


Getting back into the groove of actually journaling is strange. I think I like it, though. :)

Gonna try crossposting this over to le olde eljay, and see how that works out. ::crosses fingers::
