It’s blog time! This week I spent most of my time in WOW (and a little time building in SL). I found a friend [a real life (RL) friend] that is an experienced player and he took me into my first dungeon play. I felt like a kindergartener in a PH.D program -talk about totally sensory overload! Between the chatting, and the killing, and being killed (repeatedly), and trying to find my way back into the dungeon, any finding and using my healing spell on myself and others, and knowing what loot to take and pass on (I made some big mistakes on that one) – I only survived being kicked out of the group because my friend’s vote saved me! I certainly learned a lot and earned enough XP (that stands for experience points) to be able to ride a horse – well a ram because dwarfs can't ride horses, only rams. But I got a nice ram and it’s a lot more fun to ride than walk (presence). I found myself thinking less about teaching and more just enjoying playing. So this week I am going to study up on the teaching application (and continue to enjoy playing). Also, I find that I like doing quests on my own; however, playing in the dungeons is exhilarating! Here’s what my dwarf looks like now that I’ve amassed some new equipment.
