Fell asleep putting my son to bed, and now I’ve been awake since 3AM. So I know I haven’t been keeping up with my blog posts. I won’t say I have been busy, but time does slip by me. Even though I’m only taking two classes this semester that are only twice a week; the work I get still is quite time consuming. I also made a new friend over the Fall semester, and she has been coming over the weekends (so far every weekend). Since the college we attend closes on Fridays, she spends the rest of the weekend with us; and I enjoy it every minute of it :). I just got done writing my first paper in almost 6 years for my Humanities class. I’m not feeling too happy about it, at least not until I saw everyone else’s paper in class; only then I was proud of my work. ^_^
So needless to say, my play time on WoW has decreased tremendously. I checked the timely reports I get in my emails from the Parental Controls on my WoW account:
Week of Dec 25-31: 2406 mins ( approx 40 hours)
Week of Jan 1-7: 2275 mins (approx. 38 hours)
Week of Jan 8-14: 1545 mins (approx. 26 hours)
Week of Jan 15-19: 738 mins (approx. 12 hours)
I started my college classes on the 9th of January. Yes you can say that my playtime before was based on that I was on Winter break. Even comparing the week of when I started class to the week after, my play time decreased by almost 48%! Wow, I can’t imagine how much of my WoW time has been lowered during this week. Probably not that much, because I do need to finish up my Lunar Festival achievements for “What a Long Strange Trip its Been”. I also have decided to tone down my raiding. Mainly because if my friend comes over every weekend; then that only leaves me Monday to possibly Thursday to get my homework done for my classes. Not only that, but I can’t raid till 12AM on Tuesday night; only to get up at 6:30AM to go to class, and then pass out on Wednesday night putting my son to bed… So my raiding is basically going to be a hit and miss. On the plus side, when I passed out on Wednesday night; I heard my guild down Ultraxion on 25 man Normal mode. It only took one of the 5 healers to go DPS.
Seeing as how it’s almost 6AM now, I am going to take a little nap before my son wakes up…
