I know its been a while since I've done much of any posting, but I promise to pick it up again XD.
So I'm in a new guild with the gf as trial members, and all is well so far. We've impressed the fellow guildmates and they seem to enjoy bringing us along for raids. We'll be going in for a speed run of H Naxx tonight, which will be much to my liking since that place has begun to wear me out.
3.1 couldn't come any sooner really. I've definitely had this overwhelming feeling that we've run out of things to do in the game now and most tasks in the game have become somewhat boring to me and the gf.
I took a break from the game during my staycation the past 10 days or so and began playing again when we both could play. To be perfectly honest, I didn't miss the game at all. I was definitely enjoying the time I had with the gf and life in general :). I can't bash the game much though, since its what brought me and my girlfriend together in the first place! Thats an amazing story in itself which I don't have much need to discuss here ;).
The game is amazing for what it offers people. It's a nice escape from your life outside of the game, you just have to be careful not to let it become your life. First and foremost its a game, and its meant for people to socialize and work together to thrash monsters and defend your "world". I've seen firsthand people who've been overcome by the game and lost their jobs, got kicked out of school, and got run down.
So yes, be excited that Ulduar is coming out soon -- but don't let it take over your social life!
I'll post again after our run tonight to let you all know how our speed run goes.
