I was recently contacted by an one of my ex-GM’s about applying to one of the top Oceanic guilds on a different server. It would be overstating it to suggest I was headhunted. It was more in the nature of a friendly inquiry.
It came at a very tempting time for me – there is little doubt in my mind that my guild is steadily sliding downhill – not to mention the ENORMOUS problems I have saying no to pretty girls (see: reasons why I am here) but I came to a realisation. I don’t see myself staying in Azeroth that much longer.
I have an enormous amount of gratitude for my ex-GM – to be honest, I didn’t think she really liked me that much lol, but we all love validation from players we respect. As a healer getting that validation from a tank is better still. I still said no…
Call it burn out, call it frustration – there has been a growing feeling of disatisfaction in my mind for the last month or so. That is not to say I am outta here tonight – I want to kill the Lich King first (and its a toss up whether I stay for heroic mode) but Cataclysm leaves me completely cold.
I could (and probably will) explain the myriad of reasons why I am disastisfied. Ultimately however there are a lot positives as well. I am just looking for a different direction in life. I’ve quit my old shitty job, moved states and am generally a lot happier – only a couple of changes left lol. One thing I do know is that I am going to keep posting here until the end. I just don’t know when that will be.
