Month: September 2016

Iron Rising

Destiny’s Rise of Iron expansion dropped last week, and while I’m not quite raid ready, I have been having fun with┬áthe new content. The PvE missions are enjoyable, if a bit short, and I’m still working on snagging that Gjallahorn and Thorn. (Apparently, the questlines start with a random drop, so it may just be a matter of logging more time in-game, if I can tear myself away from WoW. Which, sadly, may not be that difficult. I’m nearing level 110 on my druid, Nahaltin, and quickly running out of story. Given that I had to drop 5k on my max riding speed last night, it’s probably safe to say that I won’t be earning enough gold to buy a WoW token for another month of game time before my current sub runs out.)

Small Town Life: Kisses for Kycie

One of the funny things about growing up in a small town is how interconnected you are, even with people barely within your social circle. For instance, my little town in rural Utah has a population of about 2,000 people. There were just over ninety kids in my graduating class, roughly 450 in the entire high school, and that’s pulling from my actual town and the five or six other towns surrounding it. If I didn’t know everyone there, I was still pretty close.

I never interacted much with Jamie Terry (or Jamie King, as I knew her then). She was a year older than me, and far more popular than nerdy little me ever even dreamed of dreaming of. I think I had one or two classes with her my entire high school career, including choir. She was a cheerleader; I was a band geek. Suffice it to say, we ran in very different circles. (more…)

Gaming Goals (With some screenshots)

Originally, I’d written up a huge post detailing everything I wanted to get done in September, both for gaming and for life in general.

Then it sat in my drafts folder for several weeks …

Oh, look! A distracting dragon!

Sometimes I forget just how pretty this game can be.

Destiny Pics, As Promised

Sorry that my ugly mug is distracting from the awesome shirt and hat.

Nothing like a $777,747.78 discount, huh?

On School, Gaming, and Life in General

Ever notice how the days drag on, but the months fly by? That’s been my life since my last post, back in mid-June. I won’t bore you with all of the gritty details (as “gritty” as things get in Happy Valley, Utah), but here’s a quick rundown on what I’ve been doing over the past few months, when I should have been blogging all along. ­čÖé
