Life is Like a Waffle

While creeping around Facebook waiting for Jenad's (my baby redshirt) assault match to go, I stumbled across this very profound message in my newsfeed. I copied/pasted it for you all to see. It's brilliant (and I cannot possibly take credit).

"This morning (night for most of you), I had a revelation. Life is a waffle, each day is a little square in that waffle, and we are whoever is eating our waffle of a life. Some days are hard and crusty and not very tasty, some are very buttery but not at all sweet, some are sweet but not buttery, some are too soggy with sweet and butter, and some squares are JUST RIGHT. not very many... But there are many that are delicious even if they're not perfect. I wish you all delicious squares, and more perfect ones."

May your lives be full of perfect squares. That's all.

Children on the Internet

I swear, if I've said it once I've said it a million times. Children (under age 18) and social media outlets don't mix. I'll be going through the list of people I follow on Twitter and trimming it down. Troublemakers can also be expected to get the boot. Because I use Tweetdeck, I'll still see anything directed at me and I'll gladly respond, but don't expect me to see everything you tweet about. I've got enough going on that seeing the garbage that gets put out there wastes my time and I have no desire to sift through arguments to get to something important.

I also realize not all of you cause problems. One bad apple has once again spoiled the entire bushel.

Have a nice day,

Songs to PvP By

Howdy! Last time on Through the Eyes of a Sorcerer, I shared my most recent song parody with you all. This time, I'm curious as to what you think would make a solid PvP related song for Wizard101 for the album Songs to PvP By: Hits from Headaches from the Holidays. It's not a real album...yet. But with enough time and songs I might put something together and even try my hand at getting them all recorded (not me singing, but I know a couple of very musically talented young ladies!).

I just sent out a tweet asking for ideas for the next couple, and I'd also like to open up the floor to those without Twitter accounts! Comment on this post with your song title/artist and I'll see what I can do. The more support a song gets, the more likely I am to consider it. If it's an obscure song, please provide a link to it on YouTube for me to find easily!

Your Friend Always,

Glad We Played

Not a full post, just a brief update to give you the 2nd track from the "Headaches from the Holidays PvP Soundtrack". It's a parody of Glad You Came. 

The rest of the team hasn't even seen this one yet; I just finished it up quickly tonight :)

Upcoming Changes: Thought Process

Hey gang. Happy almost-St. Patrick's Day to everyone out there. Wizard101 is running a special deal on many green items from the Crown Shop to honor it. Sure, green is associated with St. Patrick (along with running all of the snakes out of Ireland...does that mean Thaumaturges and Diviners aren't allowed on Ireland?), but did you know his favorite color was reportedly blue? We also celebrate the day that St. Patrick died. Not his day of birth. It's also my birthday. If you look at my Wizard101 Facebook, it's listed as May 19th. That's John Lifeglen's day of creation (because I'd forget otherwise!),  not my real one.

The title of the post is actually about what's going to be happening to Through the Eyes of a Sorcerer and the thought process thus far. Let's get right into it.

I'm considering renaming/reworking what this blog is about. I don't have the time or energy to put into multiple blogs, but I play more games than Wizard101. That being said, I like writing about all of them now and again. The most logical solution is to simply incorporate it all in here. I already write more about other games than I had ever initially planned. I haven't written about Wizard101 in quite a while now.  Why keep advertising that I operate a blog about Wizard101 when there are other titles featured regularly here?

Why haven't I been posting about Wizard101? I just haven't really been playing Wizard101 all that often. The Headaches from the Holidays are having scheduling problems so we can't really PvP, and that was my main reason for logging in. We'll pick it up again sometime, I just don't know when. What have I been doing, then? I've been in STO quite a bit. I now have a level 25 Tactical Trill and a level 15 Engineering Vulcan, Jenad and Sovak respectively. I've been logging in to spin the wheel on Runescape every day.

The steady stream of hoard packs just doesn't make me want to log in. New content =/= new hoard for me. And now that we have to buy packs to try and learn spells, I'm as under-motivated as ever. I would actually use the Samoorai spell, but I won't get that chance because I can't afford to keep trying my luck to get it. I'd probably use the Goat Monk, too. Oh well.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. Everyone, please celebrate responsibly. Drink a green-food-colored can of Sprite or something if you feel the need to have a green beverage (or a mint chocolate chip milkshake ;) ).

Your Friend Always,
