and anything else that pops in my mind...

Happy New Years Eve! Hooray! I want everyone to be safe tonight and wake up the next day alive and not in jail for drunk driving or any other crazyness. Seriously, have a designated driver.

The police make more then enough money on New Years Eve night to pay for the first quarter of the year expensives. So don't risk it.


But we need them to protect us from idiots and the insane people in this country. So cheers to that eh?

and anything else that pops in my mind...

You see, here at WTF, I like the balance between real life stories and gaming to be about a 5/95 split. Five percent real life ramblings, 95% WoW or gaming related nonsense. However, if you look at my header of my blog it clearly states...

Random thoughts and interesting stories about the world....of warcraft and anything else that pops in my mind.

This is one of those times where this post isn't going to be mostly about WoW or gaming. So you have been warned.

But lets me real...if you follow my blog for informative post would only read my blog a handful of times a month lol! You read my blog to be entertained or you like my writing style....or both. So let me do mah thang and entertain you mmmk?

So lets get on with it shall we?

I was thinking about writing up a few things the past couple of days. A post about my blog (favorite posts, comments, memes, readers, ect) and all the bloggers I seen come and go.

Eh...too overdone in the blogmosphere this year for me. I did it last year for a New Year's post and it was somewhat cool...but that was 2008.

This is the last day of 2009 people! The last day of the mother fucking decade! I wouldn't feel right talking about what this blog did or what I did in the past year alone.

Then I thought I would do a Resto Shaman FYI post due to all the fail I have personality seen in regards to HIGH level and RAIDING Resto Shamans. Wrong specs, strange gear choices, gemming for incorrect stats like crit and intellect. Just wrong things to do as a wise, wielder of nature and its healing powers . The sad thing about it is that they are in guilds that raid 25 mans! One of them even had a gearscore of 5450!

Total fail and being the type of person that I am, it drives me nuts. However, this isn't just a Resto Shaman blog...I have plenty of readers that play WoW and don't even have a healer. Not only that, but...


This is important. This is not just another new year.

Think back to 2002. What were you doing? Who were you doing? Are you the same person now as you were back then?

The answer to the third question can't be anything else then the word "No". I am saying that because back in 2002, you never even heard of World of Warcraft. It didn't even hit Alpha until late 2003. Hell, back in 2002 I am willing to bet you weren't even a online computer gamer. I know I wasn't. I played a few computer games online here and there, but mostly with people that I knew.

Nothing like how it is now.

I been playing WoW for half of decade. The other half was dominated by console games like Super Mario 64, Halo, Age of Empires, and sports games like Madden and FIFA. I still play my fair share of console games, but my free time that I use for video games is mostly taken up but the powerhouse, virtual drug...WoWcrack.

Switching subjects sligthly....

My main goal for the past 9 years was to have fun, be social, and meet / interact with as many people that I could. Things are changing now for me. I am getting older and I have a girlfriend that will soon be wife. The core group of friends that I have means everything to me and I have no motivation to meet other ones and be as social as I once was. I have very little doubt by this time next year I will have a kid on the way. I have an office job, a college degree, and a house.

WTF happened!?!

At the begining of the decade all the way up to 2008ish...I been all about friends and partying. My focus has changed quite a bit from that thinking and it scares me. Now that I realize that the 2000s are done and in the history books, makes you think of all the shit that has happened in the past 10 your personal life and in the world.

Animals tried to kill us multiple times. First is was the mad cow disease in 2003, then the bird flu in 2007. Most recently, and their best attempt to kill us, was the Swine Flu and it was actually declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Was it really a pandemic? Working the shift that I work, I sleep through the nightly news....though...not sure if I would watch it anyway, but I didn't think it was a damn pandemic!.

The Doomsday clock , symbolic representation of the threat of nuclear annihilation, went from 9 minutes to 7 minutes til midnight....then in 2007 it moved to 5 minutes til midnight. Midnight meaing...uh...BOOM.

I don't think any of us, especially Americans, can forget 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. I remember Katrina very cleary. Even though it didn't effect me personally, it effected one of my current guildies. He had to stay at the metrodome and deal with all of the madness. I remember the day he logged back on, like 3 weeks after the strom hit. Everyone was freaking out because we knew he was going to be effected by it. When he told the story though....

just wow.

What else? Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston got a divorce!


Brad then went and married crazy ass Angelina Jolie. They then went on to adopt like 10 kids from various countries.

Speaking of crazys...Brittany Spears was number 1 and could do no wrong in the early 2000s...then this happen lol.

See kids...this is why drugs are bad. I am not into nor follow celebrity nonsense, but those two stories come to mind when I think back on entertainment stuff.


Who could forget the year were it was cool to wear a short mini shirt with no underwear while you have 100 people with cameras pointed at you!?! Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears...was there another one? LOL.

"Those bitches are NASSSSSTTTTAY!!"


Its rather scary to think what I am, nonetheless the world, is going to be like at the end of 2019. At the begining of this decade I was a punk teenager, pothead, party animal, only concerned with being social, and hooking up with girls.

Towards the middle I was still a pothead and a party animal, but it was all downgraded slighty. I didn't party as hard, or smoke as much pot. I also got involved in a pretty serious relationship and I became addicted to World of Warcraft lol.

Later in the decade I already spoke about a little in this article. Quite a huge transitition if you ask me...but maybe that is because I am only in my mid 20s and I still have no idea what this whole life thing is I guess...I thought I did....but when I started thinking that the 2000-2009 decade is already gone. My brain was critted with a wall of shit to write down on a pad of paper, or on mah BLOG! Hooray!!

So do yourself some reflection. Think about the past 10 years and set some goals up for the upcoming decade.

Sorry if this post was boring, but my brain needed the relief lol.

Until next year, I'm WTFout!!

On the other hand, you can always believe that the world will end in 2012 and you won't have to worry about 2019! :P

thedoctor said...

@kyrilean - I am in no way, shape or form, worried about the future. I hope that isn't how I came across, but if it is, I did not mean too. I just can't believe its 2010 already...f'n a I'm getting old.

Dread said...

Actually December 31st, 2010 is the end of the began January 1st, 2001. I say this because I believe the first AD year recorded was 0001, not 0000.

So yeah, been a crazy decade, the thing thats been killing me from that post: who was I doing in 2002? I can't even definitively remember where I was living in 2002. I can say, having turned 30 a few days ago, its like 29, just older lol. Happy new years man, best of luck with the gf and the future rugrats, you guys were definately one of my highlights of 2009.

Rivs said...

Yeah the decade ain't over yet, but thats being technical.

But just stopping by to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

P said...

Seeing you in 09 was definitly a good time Fish. I met someone off the internet, no one got raped, and we all lived to tell the tale.

Hmmm.. I agree with you in starting the year at 0001. But decades means 10 years, so if the the count start at year 2000 and end in 2010 so its 10 years right?
