Going Back to WoW

It's been over a month since I canceled my WoW account and now that a new in-game holiday event is starting on Monday I think it's time to start playing again. I've enjoyed all the extra time out of game and it was very relaxing but I missed a lot of my friends. School has begun and that always keeps me pretty busy but even being in game once a week is nice so I can check in and say hi. We'll see how it goes.

Done with Potter

It's been a few months since the last Harry Potter book was released and I finished reading the book about three days after. I thought that the previous book wasn't good and the last didn't impress me much either. What I was real happy about was that all the hype was finally over. I got tired of Harry Potter and hearing about it even though I was reading the books and couldn't get enough information about characters. The most exciting part of this last book turned about to be getting the book itself, not the plot. At the bookstore there were tons of people all getting the same book and Harry Potter memorabilia was everywhere. It was nice being part of that phenomenon, almost like being part of literary history by just purchasing a book. Now I'm happy that the Harry Potter hype had died down so much (and quickly), even if there are still two more movies to make.
