I also play WoW and blog about it on my sideblog (aksannyi-wow).
I work hard for not a lot of money and I'm a student so if you see complaining it's because this is my only outlet. I'm a bit crazy at times but I have a generally great life and I love my boyfriend (RL OTP) and my kids more than anything.

Thank you, I needed that this morning.
i just called myself a harder difficulty girlfriend
only experienced players can handle me
Cool! I dig that name - I’ve got a couple names like that, for one of my alt characters I combined my two kids’ names Lalitevan = Lalito + Evan. (Lalito is a nickname from Mexico, not his actual name).
Choosing online names (especially for MMOs) is something that fascinates me, what people choose as their moniker online says a lot about them. I’m kind of the nerdy RP-type who likes to have names that could happen in universe, but I see a lot of pun names and play on words. It really shows the diversity.
Also I kind of have to laugh at my boyfriend, he plays himself as this huge nerd but he let the auto-generator name his characters in WoW, lol. I guess I have all the creativity in this relationship.
I’m glad someone on my main blog is digging my WoW posts. :-)

Wow 30 Day Challenge:
Day 4 - Meaning/Significance behind your character’s name?
[NOTE: I’m only going to discuss my main’s name.] Back in 2004, when I was first contemplating my entrance into the MMO world, I realized I would need an awesome name, a name that could fit within the confines on the fictional universe while being totally unique to myself. I spent days wondering just what kind of name I could come up with.
Strange as it may seem, the name came to me in the shower, as all brilliant ideas do. I imagined a name that had a “Japanese” flair to it, as I would be playing FFXI and it was a Japanese MMO. The name was Aksann Yi. Unfortuantely, older MMOs didn’t let you have spaces and secondary capital letters, so the name became Aksannyi.
Over the five years that I played FFXI and the five years I continued to play WoW, Aksannyi became my identifier. It’s just a name I created, just like my characters.
I can’t begin to tell you what it meant when I made it. Back then, it was just a name I thought sounded cool; a name for the fictional worlds I would traverse. Now, though, it’s become a part of me, like the name my parents gave me.
Yeah it’s funny calling me a bitch because I call out misogynists for what they are.
Watching Bar Rescue and this woman is working at the bar as her part time job. As a second job. And they’re getting mad at her because she doesn’t want to say three hours late (probably without pay) when she has to get back up and go to her first job in the morning, maybe also raise a family and/or go to school and no one in the bar seems to think this is an unreasonable request?
Newsflash, a part-time bartending job isn’t really gonna be a high priority for someone. Yeah, to the OWNER it’s his life, but not to your fucking part-time employee with an actual full-time job, and how dare you act like she’s out of line for saying that she’s not “committed” enough to your shitty bar. I mean really?
Sorry but that is the most unreasonable request I’ve heard in a long time. I mean how dare she work a secondary part time job to make ends meet and try to get some sleep so she can get to her primary job, right?
How to tell a friend from a long time ago that you don’t want to be friends anymore?
I mean not that I don’t cherish the times we had because I do, but because I feel like we’ve grown apart and we’re so different now … and because we met up for the first time in like 6 years since I moved here and it was just kind of awkward to me (and after all this time I still can’t really stand her sister, and I know they’re a package deal) and we’re just not the same people anymore and I feel bad because I’m not all that interested in friendship anymore but I don’t know how to say that without sounding like a complete dickhead.
Help me someone?
when something happens in a fandom you dont care about
Okay I think I’m gonna play WoW now, there is literally nothing else for me to do.
(NOTE: Cleaning my apartment is not a valid “thing to do.”)
Please, tell me how THIS can be considered okay!
This is utterly repugnant.
That is just an example of all the hate directed to Cote that went unnoticed!
I think why this makes me so angry is that for years, they made comments like this and it was totally “no big deal” to them but the second someone says even one little tiny criticism of EW, PP (ESPECIALLY PP) or NCIS now that Cote has left, we get called hateful, bullies, terrible, awful, etc.
I’m sorry but these people are the most hypocritical bitches on the fucking planet.Tagged: #just had to add to this #how angry it fucking makes me #8 YEARS OF ABUSE FROM THESE PEOPLE #i don't know how valid critiques and complaints even BEGIN to compare #and for what - five months? #fuck that #just fuck that
Lying about having company from out of town in order to avoid social interaction at a party you were invited to by one person you know but knowing you won’t know anyone else there.
That’s my life.
yes. I love house hunters but oh my god I want to strangle people who bitch about that shit.Okay I’m so glad I’m not the only one. Or when I’m watching Love it or List it and they get pissed off at HILARY because something was shitty in their house. Like she went into the walls 25 years ago and fucked up the plumbing. I’m like, “OH MY GOD IT IS NOT HER FAULT STOP TAKING OUT YOUR ANGER ON HER YOUR HOUSE IS 495823948450985 YEARS OLD OF COURSE IT’S GONNA HAVE ISSUES.”
I love watching HGTV but it annoys me so much when people are looking for a house or a fixer-upper and they bitch about paint colors, wallpaper, and carpets. THOSE ARE SUCH EASY FIXES. lol Holy crap if I went to buy a house on my budget and all I didn’t like was the paint color it would be a miracle.
