Postgrad

I was never particularly speedy on updating this blog before, but I have become shockingly bad at keeping it updated. I’m two weeks away from the end of Term 1 and this is my first post about my second year so far. Well I guess it is at least being written before the end of the term! That does sum up my year so far for two of my courses. I have to take English Language level 1 to qualify for honours, otherwise I would have saved myself the boredom of the majority of it. I’m sure there are some people out there who findRead More →

World of Warcraft Theramore

Warning: This post contains major spoilers for the latest World of Warcraft novel ‘Jaina: Tides of War’ and some spoilers for Mists of Pandaria. I’m not usually one to go into detail about a book or even list the events, however, the in game scenario leaves out a LOT of important information. I know that a lot of my fellow or ex-WoW players probably won’t read the novel so when MoP comes around there are going to be some massive gaps left unanswered. So first I’m going to relay the ‘Facts’, the events and information in the novel and then I’m going to give someRead More →

Uni Updates

Months ago most of my fellow students completed their first year of University, I however, still hasn’t officially finished. I have now done all three of my exam re-sits and had the result back for one of them… yep, you guessed it. I am stuck waiting for the other two results. I don’t know how many times in the past few weeks I have felt like tearing my hair out and promised myself never ever again to miss my exams the first time around. I don’t care if I’m dying in December; I’m doing those bloody exams! Since having my sinuses investigated at the hospital,Read More →

World of Warcraft Pre-Cataclysm Bucket List

Sam did a Cataclysm Bucket list not long ago which I thought was a brilliant idea. So here’s my list of things I want to accomplish before Mists of Pandaria is released. All Alts level 85 I have nine alts, my tenth character spot taken up by my bank character. Despite having so many alts I absolutely suck at leveling them all to max level and I’m especially bad at actually gearing them. So among other alt related goals the first one is to get them all to 85. At the moment I have my Death Knight Frostya and Shaman Thistalee at level 82, myRead More →

Memories

One of the dreaded things about writing a blog post after so long is that guilty explanation about where you’ve been, why you’ve not posted. I’m terribly for falling into this trap and this time the only explanation I’m giving is that I didn’t want to write. I’ve been enjoying my summer after returning from a lovely holiday in Benalmadena, Spain. The university term ended at the end of May and a week later I’d had all my final grades for Term 2. Normally this would be a cause for celebration and hello summer. Not for me because I have my exam resits in AugustRead More →
