I’ve gone casual?06/08/2010
So, my posts have been few and far between lately, which I apologize for. I have at least two bopping around in my head, but I’ve not had the time to get them out yet. This is due to the fact that I have a new job which is sucking both my energy and my time away from my blog and from the game. For almost two years, I’ve been a homemaker. The sudden change to working for someone is a larger one than I thought it would be! I’ve suddenly lost all my old skills of working and then coming home to raid. It really is a skill and I’ve completely lost it.
This blog isn’t going anywhere, as I -do- plan on playing during the expansion and I still have a large quantity of knowledge about healing I can share. I’m just going to be more of an “armchair general” than I’m used to. I’ll be raiding less often, playing less often and being a healing lead not at all. (Probably the saddest part of it all… I just cannot keep the post when I haven’t the time to do outside research like I used to. The section deserves better than me being “half ass” when I’m even able to be there at all.)
I really have to question, though, if my new scheduling issues means that I can now be considered a “casual?” One raid a week, if I can manage it, and little real playtime logged will be all I can manage. Or does it take more than that? I’ll certainly not be throwing random gems into my gear or running with a less than optimal spec. Does that mean I’m going to be “part-time hardcore?” Do I get to make my own label up for myself? “Temporally challenged formally progressive armchair general” sounds rather nice…
