My Goals for November

Monthly Goals November 2016

 

 

After seeing several ladies over at Geek Girls + Blogger posting their November goals I decided it would be a good thing for me to implement. Hopefully it will help me keep up with things, as well as also helping me to realise that I am getting things done. That I am being productive even when I feel like I’m not. So here are my monthly goals for November!

 

Blogging

I’m planning on upping my blogging game this month in several different ways. Firstly, just generally keeping up to date and on top of things by scheduling posts in advance. Then by adding some new content in such as Christmas gift guides.

 

Youtube

Due to illness and RL priorities, I fell a bit behind with my videos. I have a lot of stuff recorded just need to edit and put it all together. I really want to get this done this month and get started on some new content! (Plus the Priest campaign has an epic finale I am dying to show you guys!)

 

World of Warcraft

I am still loving Legion but there is SOOO MUCH to do! It is so easy to get completely lost at the moment and just sit staring at my screen wondering what the hell to do next. So, I made a list especially for WoW:

  • Finish my Demon Hunter campaign.
  • Finish my main’s profession levelling (literally only archaeology is maxed…)
  • Complete a full set of Illusion Books (enchanting) for me and Chris.
  • Finish off Broken Isles achievements for killing rares.
  • Start levelling my druid with Chris.
  • Start levelling my mage solo.
  • Do the dungeon profession quests on my Demon Hunter and Monk.

 

New Desk Set Up

It was my birthday last month and my parents generously helped me get a brand new, much bigger desk. The plan is to get it set up this month and try to work out where everything is going.

 

New Diet

I’m not one for going on about diets, but it is very important for me personally to get the hang on this one. I am doing so much cooking that I feel like I’m cooking all day every day, and it requires me to get things prepared in advance. It’s a bit learning curve, not to mention sticking to the diet and going through the hard transitional phase which is going to suck.

 

Work on a Project

I have a bunch of online projects/websites I want to work on, and I may or may not have time to do this – it really depends on how my health goes this month. This isn’t a top priority which is why it is at the bottom of the list.

 

There may also be…

Some make up reviews and tutorials, and some Bioshock Infinite playing happening… Maybe. If not this month, next month for sure.

 

Do you have any monthly goals? Or anything you hope to achieve this month? Let me know! 🙂

5 Characters I Want to Dress Up as for Halloween [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - Characters I want to dress up as for Halloween

marajade

Star Wars – Mara Jade

My favourite all time character, so of course she has to be first on this list! Her outfit is very simple to make and I’ve dyed my hair the correct colour in the past so that’s also easy!

 

leia

Star Wars – Leia

Sadly, Mara is no longer actual Star wars canon (yet) so my actual canon choice which most people would recognise is Leia. Particularly this outfit as I have wanted to dress up in this iconic outfit since I was a teenager!

 

belle

Disney – Belle

Despite loving Disney, I don’t feel a big attachment to many of the female protagonists so this was easy to narrow down. Belle is a fantastic character, and a book lover to boot!

 

phedre

Kushiel Legacy – Phedre

This is definitely one for the daring list, but I love the idea of the marques (full back tattoo) while I couldn’t have a permanent one (I’m too ticklish!) I’d love to have one for Halloween or a costume ball.

 

kaelea-copy

 

World of Warcraft – My Main

If I had the time, the skill and the ability to recreate some of the gorgeous characters and appearances from World of Warcraft I have a feeling I’d never stop. Choosing an NPC is insanely difficult, but I’d love to dress up as my main character, my human priest.

Pre-Legion Catch Up

World of Warcraft: Legion

 

 

Legion is ever so close and so I figured now would be a good time to revisit my Pre-Legion Bucket List. This is my first blog post this month, and an easy one to get me back into the swing of things. I’ve had my exams, and have one more resit assignment due on 5th Sepember. I’ve actually managed to get a lot more of my Bucket list complete than I expected because I’ve been super ill. While there’s been several days in bed/on the couch, the majority of the time it’s much easier for me to be doing something to keep my mind off the constant pain and depressing discomfort. Video gaming is one thing that I can do (most of the time) when I feel really crappy, it keeps me going and so having a bucket list of stuff to do has really helped keep me sane.

So, how did I do? Lets take a look!

Essential

Legendary Ring

I got mine done with out any bother, as did Chris, and he even decided to get a second one done! I’m not one for multiple legendaries, especially if I don’t have much time, so I’ve been helping him get his done. Hopefully, he should get the last ones he needs in the next few days before Legion arrives!

 

Level my Paladin to 100

Not only did I get my Pally to 100, I got all my characters to 100 and even made a second Pally, Zaeliah, which I rushed through dungeons. She’s currently 91 and will be leveling to 100 in the next few days with Chris’ final character, also his Pally. She’s currently Ret, but I’m considering making her Holy.

You can see Zaeliah’s details, and all my characters on my updated World of Warcraft page. Look at all those shiny 100s! 😀

 

Get my Moose!

Thanks to the lovely and generous hexrowow both Chris and I got our Grove Warden mount ! 🙂

 

Pepe

As predicted, the next weeks reset yielded the final boss I needed; Drov. Pepe achieved!

 

Hopeful

 

Collections – Wardrobe

I managed to get most of the shirts and tabards ready before the patch came out, although there were a few I had to go fly about to get.

 

Collections – Toys

I got quite a few I didn’t have and you can see the updated list of progress for them too.

 

Pet Charms

I’ve gotten some pet charms, but I haven’t actively been collecting them that much. Mainly just whatever I get from leveling a few new pets in battles against the Draenor battle masters.

 

 

 

On Hold

 

Old Runs

Yeah, on hold…. ha! As soon as the new wardrobe came out I became a little bit obsessed with old runs for a while there :p

 

Achievements

My score was 20465, it is now 20515. I didn’t get Glory of the Pandarian Hero done, but I did get the raiding version done and got the gorgeous Reins of the Heavenly Crimson Cloud Serpent which I love (despite it being quite pink)!

 

 

Horde Characters

I got the leveling bug and so my Horde shadow priest Ismanta went from level 50 to 88! Then the new patch came out and I got busy with invasions and stuff. So she’s now on the back burner, but she’s a hell of a lot higher than any other horde character has been before a new expansion. Progress!

 

And Everything Else…

There were a few things I didn’t plan on doing, but did;

 

Legendary

I finally finished my Tarecgosa legendary! 😀 I’m also currently 42 out of 50 shards for Shadowmourne. Unfortunately, there seems to be a bit of a bug with the drop rate in ICC 25 HC so not sure how quickly this is going to go until that gets fixed.

 

Patterns & Wardrobe

As I said, I got a little bit obsessed with adding new appearances to my wardrobe collection and so I ran a lot of old dungeons and raids. I’ve also been farming missing patterns for tailoring, blacksmithing and leatherworking (I spent waaay too long in BRD). Currently I’m working my way through my tailoring list, making everything I don’t have. I’ve gotten quite a lot of it done and I’m now at the stage where I need to go farm a bunch of mats. I’m also doing the daily cooldowns for each of those professions from MoP to discover new patterns.

 

Gearing up Characters

Thanks to invasions most, if not all, my characters will have full 700+ gear by the time Legion comes about. I just have a few more to do. I have always wanted to do have max leveled and max geared characters before a new expansion and have never had the time. The invasions have been very easy to do and have helped with that immensely.

 

 

With only a few days to go, what are your plans to prep for Legion? Cleaning banks? Clearing our quest logs? I’m doing both of those and handing in old raid gear tokens as I go.
