I survived my four days away and came back with a certificate and very sore legs. Ironically, I was at the exact same place that TwitchCon is being held at! If only I had an extra week >< ! My time in San Francisco was pretty awesome and I learned quite a bit, but damn did it feel good to come home 🙂
In-Game TwitchCon Party
Today, I will be hanging out in a bar in Lion’s Arch with my commander pin turned on watching the TwitchCon stream at about 5 pm CDT. Come hang out with Commander Gladiolus, Smokey Steelforge, or Spectral Paw – I will post the IP here when I’m in. I will be drinking and possibly annoying everyone in SL Teamspeak 😀 Join the community at SpectralLegion.com and hang out with us! We’re in the process of migrating our forum data over to our new site, so it will look much fuller soon.
The IP is my Lion’s Arch is: 18.104.22.168:0
I might bust out a Silverwasted event tonight, in which every time a camp is capped, you drink and 2 drinks for beating the Vinewrath or something along those lines.
With the upcoming release of raids in GW2, the community is focusing on skill more, so I’ve been trying to learn my professions a bit better to be more valuable in our raid groups.Well… I’ve got a long way to go, ha. I’ve finally built up the courage to stop hoarding all my mats and finally start building my damn ascended gear. For some reason, I barely have any dark matter D: I wouldn’t have used it on anything. I think I may just be really unlucky lol! I have a buttload of all other mats, but no dark matter.
I’ll be sporting my engineer scarf, sylvari hoodie, and gaurdian earrings today with my trusty Commisisoner Baabloo and Charrlie (Rytlock really) plushies. Wooo!
Speaking of GW2 stuff, check out this amazing Scarlet Briar on Etsy.
But really, come to LA tonight and hang!
Day 1 of this trip feels like I’ve been here much longer! I flew into San Francisco and bumped into people I knew right away. It made things much easier. I walked a lot with heavy luggage and am very happy that I’ve been bulking so I can finally become She Hulk.
Now for the real news….
I passed my exam!!! I also drank in
a spooky dive bar and ate Burmese food so I feel like a full, drunk champ. Adult 2.0.
I need to sleep now, wee.
I don’t know how to post this right now. Ummm.
Tomorrow, I leave for my trip very early. I’m freaking out a lot internally. I will be going for my certification exam hours after I arrive and it will be the first thing I do at this conference. I’ve been studying like crazy, but work’s been very busy scrambling my brain, so I don’t think I’m going to pass it this time around. Oh well. I will fortunately be meeting up with some co-workers, so that makes things a bit less scary. I will be walking and learning a lot … and perhaps drinking as well. HEYOOOOO.
This is the first time I am doing anything like this, so it’s very weird for me. I hope I pass the exam, but mostly I hope I don’t die 😀
I’ve squeezed in some Guild Wars 2 time, but not nearly as much as I’d like. When I get back on Friday, I will be shutting out the world and going into a GW2 coma for 2.5 days. I did have the opportunity to play a bit during the beta weekend and am loving Revenant & Reaper with a fiery (greatsword) passion. I’m feeling torn about which I like better. Revenant is like nostalgia mode for GW1 players, so I feel all warm and fuzzy whenever I switch legends. It’s probably not a huge surprise, but my favorites were Shiro and Glint. Reaper just feels like a badass. That’s the best way to explain it for me, but mostly, I don’t have much time to write at this moment.
I’m turning 30 this month and certainly don’t feel it. I don’t think it will stop me from wearing children’s clothes, playing with toys, or going to the zoo, so I guess it’s ok. Due to recent craziness, the Dragon Party has been cancelled, because I need a vacation from life lol.
Wish me luck in not dying this week.
