It’s been almost 7 years since I posted to this particular blog. My original blog doesn’t exist anymore and my domains have all expired.
I’m dealing with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty and general Bad Brain Days that have me wanting to just sleep for several months at a time. I don’t know what to do to get past it. It sucks. Met with our pastor to discuss some of it and the idea of self compassion came up. It’s not something one thinks of often. We have compassion on our friends, family, kids, coworkers, etc. It comes very naturally to many of us. But having compassion on ourselves is something that just doesn’t work for some of us, myself included. I can’t be sympathetic to myself because I am myself. It’s hard to take pity or empathize with yourself. But it’s what I need. I think.
I need rest. Peace.

I will write more when I get home about the creation of the Northern Brethren Core, which is our Guild Wars guild.
Also, WordPress 2.7 is coming out! Huzzah!!

The Northern Brethren are coming back!
Northern Brethren is the Guild Wars guild that a bunch of us folks from Michigan Tech formed back in the World Preview Event in 2005. Since then, activity has fluctuated, ranging from an addicted core, to nearly dead. In our prime, we were a top ranked Guild vs Guild team, coming in at #12 worldwide. The metagame shifted a ton, and we quickly retreated to PvE play, and still enjoy it.
Today, we are in the reformative stage, figuring out how to get back in to the game and remain loyal to our GW roots (The Wikipedia article on Guild Wars used to use the Northern Brethren as a visual representation of the original six character classes).
Anyway, the new Northern Brethren site is up. Check it out, come back often for updates.
I really like the GvG log I maintained for the longest time. My favorite part, and hopefully something I can begin to update again soon.

Lomo mailboxes. It’s been a crummy night weatherwise (which is the way I love it).
