Reporting in!

Heya chaps!

Long time no see, or read, whatever you prefer. Yeah, I’ve kinda ignored this blog for a while, but now I’m back! Why? Well, so you can read what is going on in my life at the moment, and so that I can fall asleep tonight with the happy thought that there are people who actually CARE about the stuff I post here. Yeehah!

First of all, I’m enjoying my break from the university at the moment. I’m off until August 31, and I’m using the time to catch up on some old hobbies. Lately, I’ve put some love again in my Troll Shaman on WoW, with my latest addition of four new items in one Naxx25 run! Still, I feel like WoW is dying for me, even though I like healing in raids. Maybe it’s more than normal that you start losing interest in something you’ve been doing for four-and-a-half years, right? Nevertheless, my current occupation in WoW is learning the trick to “play” the Auction House, and I’m already making some minor profit on vendoring / reselling items. It’s quite an awesome feeling to log in on your bank alt, and see that you have 150g in your mail, and two hours later you check it again, and you have 100g in it. Can we spell “Ka-ching”?

While we are on the topic of MMO’s, I’m quite hyped about Champions Online at the moment. Being a closet fan of City of Heroes, I was waiting for more games in the superhero genre, and Champions Online seems to be the next best thing in that, still very small, niche of MMO’s. Even though my inside sources tell me that CO still struggles with quite some issues, I still want to play this. And tell me, which MMO came out just perfect? No my little fan boys, even World of Warcraft was, and is, flawed.

In other news, I’ve started to do something more for my physical well-being, and I’m currently following the training scheme from www.hundredpushups.com , training you six weeks long to achieve those magical one-hundred consecutive push-ups. Right now, I’m in week 2 of the program, and I’m already noticing the effects. Let’s see if I can make the one-hundred, shall we?

So, that’s it for now. I’m gonna write a bit more short fiction, just to chill out. So, catch you later, chaps!

Rounding up

You know what I just realized a few hours a go? I just had my last classes for this academic year…wow. This year went by extremely fast…damn, it seems like yesterday that I got to know the people I would study with for, hopefully, 4 years. All that’s left to do now is surviving two weeks of exams and re-sits, and then I’m more than ready to enjoy one-and-a-half month of relaxation. Six weeks is quite alot, so what would I like to do in that time?

First of all, I want to take the time for reading a good book. It has been quite awhile since I worked my way through a fine novel, even though I enjoy nothing more than finishing my day by reading a few chapters before falling asleep. Also, I should use the spare time to write down some of my ideas, and get a little longer story going. Maybe the summer break is the ideal time to elaborate on my Anthanatos concept?

Second, I would love to take a little trip somewhere in Europe. I have some options, with an attractive invitation to visit Sweden for a while (thanks for that, Joakim!). So, who knows, I might update my blog from there during the break? 😀

And last, but not least, summer break is the ideal time to do something nerdish, just to keep up the reputation. So, anyone who has input on that, just drop me a line. Anything’s possible: from a Stargate SG-1 marathon, to a crazy experimental RPG one-shot.

For now, I’m off to enjoy the evening. I adivce you to do the same, especially with this song I just can’t get out of my head:

P.S.: Yes, it’s a new blog skin. Awesomesauce, righto?
