Hey guys, as you know I'm pretty into wow. I play a lot. I don't think there is a day where i'm not online. If i'm not online half the time i'm on these forums or i'm browsing theory crafting sites. As you can tell; I'm pretty into it. While this has been well and good for the past 4years, its begining to get detrimental. When i first started playing wow it was just when i had the free time. Log on here, log on there. Very casual and relaxed. Leveling with my friends from school are some of the best wow memories i've had. Then i started raiding. Shit got serious. I feel that it was a turning point in my WoW life. From logging on when i wanted too, it moved onto feeling obliged to log on to raid. 4 nights a week i was signing up to kill the fire lord in the molten core. Why did i do it? Well the answer is simple, i was after the loot. The best rewards only came from being able to raid.
The rewards were only reaped from commitment.
Why i've told this story is to explain why i'm moving on. Through my experience in World of Warcraft I've realised that the real rewards only come from putting in the hard hours. This not only applies in WoW but in many other circumstances; in particular, real life.
I oft wonder why i'm only doing OK in my university course. I now sit here feeling stupid at how obvious the answer is. The fact of the matter is that i'm putting in more time to wow then my studies and thus the rewards of my studies are not coming into fruition.
The answer is simple.
There can only really be room for one.
Life, or Warcraft.
Tonight my friends, i'm choosing life.
To all the fellow WoW players i say sorry. I feel like i'm letting some of you guys down. But in the end, its my life. I gotta live it how i gotta live it.
So again i bid you all a farewell. A goodbye to the community and suprisingly soothing routine of log on, raid, reap rewards. A goodbye to the antics of Southern Cross and the support and nature.
A simple Goodbye.
