This is going to be a random rambling of ingame stuff with no real theme.
1. I've started farming some for the Death horse mount. I have it down to 10 minutes with stealthing and the key to the city. It is wierd though how my ocd kicks in and sometimes I unstealth to get some mobs aggroed so I can feel like I worked a little for it. I've gotten tons of runecloth even with the few mobs I have killed. I find it totally relaxing to be by myself and just mindlessly kill. I have even turned the game sound back on and I must say I am in love with the noise my toon makes as I kill. I had turned the game sound off when I was a member of Spartan Empire because we hung out in vent so much...which brings me to my next ramble.
2. My new guild is...eh okay. I like the people, they are friendly and helpful and have welcomed me. It is a much larger guild than Spartan so its not as much as a family hangout situation. Spartan on the other hand in the 10 days I have been gone has grown by 25 80's, a change I would not have liked if I was still there. Yes, we needed more people to build a raid team, but I have never been fond of quanity over quality. So, even if I wanted to go back, I don't think it will happen. My hunter remains there.
3. Gold. I need 1k to either dual spec my hunter or I am thinking of just speccing to markmanship. I don't have any exotic pets or reason to remain in beast mastery spec at this level but for some reason I am hesitant to give it up. I actually broke down and did the dailys at the Tournament Grounds early this am on Nuadia to build up some cash. I also used my 75k honor points to buy some extra epic gems and posted on the AH. Epic gems are so inexpensive right now, the economy is insane on Borean Tundra.
4. I am thinking of cleaning house. Literally and in WOW. I have serveral bank alts, with tons of mats, I keep everything. Each of my bank toons has guild banks with 2 and 3 tabs each. I need to buy one on one of them as it only has the one. Which is what prompted the desire to just sell everything and start over. I've been watching Hoarders on A&E and I am a little concerned with myself. In RL, what has prompted this is my purchase of my new bed. My house was in such disarray that I couldn't even bring it home, prompting a weird dream where I ended up in front of Judge Judy quibbling about paying the bed place for storage fees because I wouldn't pick it up. Honestly, I don't see myself as a hoarder but more of a procrastinator. I don't deal well with stuff. Mail stacks up, old clothes stack up, nothing gets put away or finished. Yet, in WOW, every few days I go through my banks, my mail and place everything neatly in it's place. I even broke down and called a professional organizer to check her rates. I'm not sure if that is what I need or a life coach.
Point to all this: nothing. I'm not sleeping well or enough. I had a really bad episode with some back pain and I still am not feeling very well. Blah.

Well I fooled myself. I said I would stay. But here I am with a decision to leave already made. It is so uncharacteristic of me. to make a decision that easily that is. Usually I agonize for days, talk it out to myself, friends, strangers, anyone who will listen to me. This time I just did it. I am leaving my guild. I got a invitation to join a 10 man core ICC team. They would probably tolerate me not being in the guild but I wouldn't want to take the gear. and I really want the gear. As the GM of the new guild said about me leaving, "They will get over it." Both in WOW and in real life you can take that philosophy to the bank. No matter how important you may think you are, in any situation, people will get over you leaving. I feel as if I have reached a milestone in my life. For once I can just leave and not look back. I have no idea if I am going into a bad situation or a good one but I know I can just do this without all of the guilty baggage I generate normally. This feels big. really really big.
