Hey there WoW-Pro members! =)
Just wanted to make a little write-up about how I’m holding up and what my thoughts are these days, so feel free to read this.
Some of you may know me, some of you may not. I’m Mike, known as Shikamaru, and I’ve had a great time writing guides and helping people on this website.
As some of you also may know and others won’t, I was 14 when I started writing guides (yes, there are children perfectly capable of writing huge amounts of informative text). I’ve enjoyed my stay in the World of Warcraft a lot, but I stopped playing about 4 months ago. Why? Couldn’t handle 3/4 days of raiding a week (tight time schedule) with on Frostwhisper. I must say that I’ve had a great time and learned a lot from the members of Max Performance, which was rewarded with a big thumbs up from my side!
After quitting WoW my time schedule wasn’t as tight anymore as it was before, which opened up new routes for me. School is a breeze nowadays, I’m holding up pretty good. Soccer’s been great this year, also. It’s actually weird how much free time quitting WoW opened for me. I still think it’s a great game, but it eats up time as if it was cake.
If I were to enroll in the World of Warcraft once again, would anyone want to level a character with alongside with me (through Recruit-A-Friend, maybe)?
I’ve always played WoW not just because I liked the raiding, gearing and perfecting my rotations, I’ve also been playing WoW in a way so that I could socialize with people (I tend to like people around me). Socializing in a game does not mean you can’t socialize in your every day life, which most people think. Please stop reading if you do so. This had kept me playing for a good 2 years. I’ve made 4 friends in the World of Warcraft which I still speak regularly to, which makes my quite happy. I like to keep my contacts as good as possible, nothing can beat friends (or well.. a girlfriend can occasionally *whistles*).
If I DO roll back in (I have no idea when that will happen and even IF it’s going to happen), I’d like to start writing guides again, also. This has been something that’s pulling me back, actually. I’ve always liked writing guides, and Jame has helped me greatly in improving the lay-out of my writings and my writing in general, thanks Jame. This is actually helping me in school, writing essays or summaries is a breeze now.
Also, I’d like to thank Jiyambi for her impressive write-ups, great character and overall kindness. Quite happy actually I met some awesome people here! Ji, you’re a great person! =)
And of course, there are the other people on this website which have helped me or have been extremely nice to me, thanks to all of you!
This is pretty much it for today, got to go back to learning some exams now. I’ll pull through ^^
If you have any thoughts, questions or answers.. feel free to leave a comment and I’ll read and reply to it.
