So this is my first post in a series of 20 from Spellbound.
I am a 30 something Australian female, married to an amazing man, we have no kids (and no plans either). 2 dogs and 1 cat are our children and that is more than enough babysitting for me.
I have been playing WoW since 05 – I have had 3 major hiatus’ from the game that I can think of, and I always end up coming back home to Azeroth. There are things I believe could be improved – but they are nothing I feel worth complaining about as i enjoy so many more aspects of the game.
In the last 3 years I have been going through a very rough patch – life changing experiences – you could say and I have been trying to sort through a lot of baggage that I seem to have collected (dare I say hoarded) over the years. My main one is dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and associated issues that occurr stemming from that, which was brought on from the rape that nearly took my life.
I have always enjoyed WoW because it is my form of escapism from the world and there is nothing better than living in a land of magic! This stemmed from reading my first ever fantasy novel as a teenager – “Magician”….I was then hooked on magic of all sorts. My library collection is made up of 99% high fantasy novels; Feist, Douglass, Clemens, Donaldson, Tolkien, Eddings, Kerr etc – the list goes on.
This love of magic has crossed into my life and was the reason I became interested in Earth based religions – I classify myself as a witch (pagan). I have been following a nature religion since i was about 17(approx) and it is a massive part of my life.
I am only just starting to develop a determination to have some sort of career happening now, and I will be trying to get into photography. I am starting a short course in a few weeks and I am hoping I have an eye for images. I already take loads of shots and I can link to my deviantart page for constructive criticism if you like :D
Aside from WoW, photography and magic, I am into so many other things – NRL (go the dragons), blogging (I have 3 other blogs), Symphonic Goth Metal (Nightwish, Within Temptation), Alternative (Lacuna Coil, Nemesea, Delain) and the range just keeps expanding from there; Adele, Raphael Saadiq, Flyleaf, Anberlin, Elvis, Carrie Underwood, The Mcclymonts, Dixie Chicks, Nigel Kennedy….I love Baking/Cooking -3 course meals, cakes, deserts, cookies etc; I do enjoy drinking, movies, TV shows (true blood, supernatural, GLEE, fringe, merlin) and just having fun with friends….
I think I have written too long an intro, so I am going to stop waffling and just shut up now!! I hope I didn’t scare you away!!
