Good morning all! (I'm not really this chipper at 8am, but I can fake it on the internet...)

So I originally had a brilliant idea - and by 'had', I mean 'stole from Pinxy' - for this Tuesday post... but suffice to say I was NOT PREPARED and so I'm saving it for next Tuesday.

Instead, I'm looking forward to hearing about your plans, big and small, for the rest of 2014! Theoretically, I'm hoping to have moved several states away by the end of the year, which feels pretty big; we'll see how that works out... :P

Speaking of 'later in 2014', here's a decent amount of news regarding Warlords of Draenor, including some neat info about raids and world bosses! I personally am soooooooooooooooooooooooo excited that[Spoiler (click to open)]the new raid will be set in Nagrand, and that it will be a mostly open-outdoor raid plan (similar to Firelands). I was kind of worried that since it sounds like an ogre raid it would be fully set inside a cave, but it sounds like it might make good use of Nagrand's beautiful scenery!!!!

Without further ado:

What are your plans/goals, big or small, IRL or in-game, for the remainder of 2014?

And as always, tell us what you've been up to IRL and in-game!

To expand on the moving thing, I really want to pick us up and move myself, my husband and our 3 cats to WA. I cannot stress enough how much it gets me down living in the dry, dusty middle of nowhere.


I grabbed Sionell, Shaeldre & a few out-of-guild this week and made them do Brawler's Guild with me! And then they accidentally stayed up all night on Sunday doing it XD I just beat the Rank 10 boss last night, so now I have a Big Burly Brawler's Mushan (it's called something like that, anyways!) It was a lot of fun; I'm hoping to collect all of the quests that allow you to complete the optional bosses for the achievement [Collect Your Deck]. I only have 4 of the quest items left to get: 1 from Tol'vir archaeology, 2 from scenario reward boxes, and 1 from killing Kor'kron in Northern Barrens.

The other thing I'm getting into is the Proving Grounds! I've done Bronze through Gold for Damage, and I'm trying to set myself up with a good gear set-up for the Endless mode (it's probably not too essential, but since I need the gear in case of Challenge Modes anyway, I might as well!) so I have done Throne of Thunder wing 2 LFR 4 times this week... bleh. Still need a necklace, so I'll be headed back in today...

I need to do Proving Grounds too!

IRL; I want to keep with exercising and increase study. Eldercare is draining, and they help me be less depressed.

In game, I'm going to get a couple of classes leveled up. Eudaimonia, a druid and a Shaman . My DOTH druid is 88, so that one won't take long. Immediately, figure out what's up with my laptop. Last patch WoW started telling me my drivers were out of date and wouldn't play, and I'd just updated them. I ran the update again, and its still giving me the message. I have no idea how to fix that, but can now only play WoW when grandpa's settled enough that I can leave the room for a while.

Ahhh, I have some similar goals re: exercise. I just hope I can manage to stick to them :D

I started getting that message too about my drivers! BUT I ignored it because i'm bad and everything still seems to work. :X

- Prepare for the inevitable day when my mom goes back to MA and I have to pay for daycare ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)
- Create a serious budget and start saving for a house (because $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)
- Make a life plan for leaving SoCal because it is too expensive (no, not really, but still)
- Play lots of video games (I was doing really well with tackling my video game backlog at the beginning of the year, but have slowed down a bit - need to get back to it)
- Lots of baby snuggling
- Find freelance jobs I can work on with my husband so we can get extra money to put toward house!


- Maybe get my horde pally to 90 if I ever feel not lazy. I've thought of using my free 90 on her but I'd like to do the horde side quests so I don't know
- Get rank 10 in Brawler's Guild. Currently stuck on the fire elemental duder that you have to throw water on, but he isn't as frustrating as Hexos or the flashlight guy, so that's something!
- Challenge modes!
- Proving Grounds! (Still never been)

IRL go back to school in the fall, read more, etc. My theme of the year has been nurturing healthy relationships and abandoning/limiting toxic ones.

In-game it would be nice to have a 90 of each class before WoD but as I'm only halfway there I wouldn't count on it.

Sionell was very busy this week. :D She got some new gloves and I pugged wing 3 of Flex to try to upgrade one of her LFR rings, but it didn't work out. :( But I did some Brawler's Guild this week and was very successful! I got to rank 10 (yay Brawler title and mushan mount, and I also now have access to the heirloom fist weapons!). It was fun. Sometimes extremely frustrating (looking at you Hexos), and other times deceivingly simple (looking at you, Ahoo'ru). But overall very fun. I'm sad the title isn't account-wide. I might work on it a bit more with Kurai so she can get it too, since she gets ALL THE ACHIEVEMENTS.

Other than that, I spent a lot of time with Alan hordeside. We RAF'd a hunter for me and a warrior for him, Feylin and Skaze, on a friend's server, and then leveled them to 90. Spent a lot of time in LFR with them and it was overall pretty fun. I love hunters, yay, and it is nice to have another Horde 90. :) We also started a new RAF pair this past week, a shaman for me and a rogue for him. They're level 73 right now. Hoping to get them to 85 this week, but I found out partway through leveling our hunter and warrior that Alan doesn't like leveling in Pandaland, so probably won't level them to 90 right away. Hoping to make some RAF pairs on another friend's server soon, too. I love RAF so much. :D

IRL, I finished Across the Universe by Beth Revis over the weekend. I enjoyed it, but it was REALLLLLLLLY predictable in parts. I will be reading the rest of the series, but have a lot of other books (and other stuff) on my plate to focus on, too.

IRL goals!
- Alan's moving here and we're getting married and stuff! This is probably the biggest thing right now, even though I can't get myself to care much about actual wedding planning at this point. He has his medical today (he's there right now, ahhhhhhhhh omg) and then he just has to wait for his visa interview to be scheduled and then he will be here. O_O I'm excited and very impatient. XD But also nervous. I just want him to be here and for this process to be over. XD
- Hopefully getting a full-time job sometime this year. Planning on waiting for Alan to get a part-time job first so the pressure is off a little bit if a full-time job for me doesn't work out.
- Learning to cook more stuff. I... really hate cooking and I don't know how to make much stuff that I like. :( I am also terrified of burning myself & not cooking certain stuff (meat) correctly. But I am hoping I can learn to like cooking. XD

In game goals:
- Challenge modes. I'd like to work on those a bit more cuz I had a lot of fun tanking them more toward the beginning of the expansion.
- Proving Grounds. I want to get the titles and stuff that are associated with it. :D
- Brawler's Guild. I want to finish getting some of the optional bosses and such.
- More achievements. I haven't done that in a while (feels weird since I am enjoying my hunter so much more right now, but Kurai has always been my GET ALL THE ACHIEVEMENTS character, so it feels weird/wrong to do them on someone else). Planning on maybe taking Kurai questing. I did some archaeology today and that was nice. :)
