I like to play the “What if” game. Have you heard of it? It’s mostly just me sitting around in my head and thinking “What if …” Sometimes I will get my husband involved and the two of us have great discussions on ‘What if”. ”What if we had a child?” ”What if I lost my job?” ”What if we won the lottery?” Some good, some bad, but all things that I spend a good deal of my time thinking about.
I don’t know what other people’s minds are like, I’m not a therapist nor a councilor of any kind, but in my head I always have a part of it going “What if”. I personally believe this makes me more adaptable and to be honest, a better healer, but sometimes this drives me insane. For example, when it’s 2am and I have to get up at 7am and my brain keeps going “What if”.
But Karegina, I can hear you asking, what does this have to do with the title of this post? Well, it’s like this. Lately I have been thinking of my own in-game identity. Who am I in the World of Warcraft universe? Am I solely a resto druid who boomchickens in her off time? Am I fundamentally a healer at my core and you can just insert me into whatever class I have access too? Am I Horde or am I Alliance?
These are questions that have actually kept me up at night recently. Now, before I go any further I need to point out that I love my guild and am very happy with my guild. However, while playing the “What if” game, my mind latched onto ‘What if Myth folds and I have to find a new guild somewhere?” What will I do then? Will I be willing to faction change to Alliance and give it a go there?
These questions haunted me for days. Nights of sleeplessness all over a question that my own mind hiccuped one day. I discussed it with the husband and his answer was simple “I am a prot pally. I go where I need to.” Also, he’d be a draenei female prot pally with the sexy butt waggle. But, would I be a worgen or a night elf druid? Would I even faction change my druid? I’ve always said that Karegina is a tauren druid. Could she live life as anything else? Could I live my in-game life as anything else?
I still have not come to a solid conclusion on these questions, which (unfortunately for me) means more sleepless nights and more soul searching. All for a hypothetical question that is not relevant in my day to day life.
Speaking of Myth, we are currently recruiting. We are 1/6H MV, 2/6 HoF. And we are looking specifically for a elemental shaman with a resto offspec (that they don’t mind using). But we will consider all applicants. Contact me (Karegina#1471) or Iambeast (Swain#1713) for more information, or just go visit our webpage: http://mythicaldoomsquad.enjin.com/
We are couples friendly (we have had up to 4 but now only have two) and I’m there. What more can you really ask for? Seriously?
