This weekend, I was in game, finishing my dailies on Saturday, as well as capping out on valor. I was super excited because this is the earliest in the week I have ever capped out my valor. I started for the first time Since Mists of Pandaria dropped, to think about what alt I would like to play the rest of the week. Once I valor capped, I logged off, so that my wife could use the computer. While she was doing the stuff she needed to, I finally decided to level my priest from 85-90 (or atleast start this weekend), mainly because he can disenchant, and I could use the mats.
When my wife finished, she shut the computer down and went back to taking care of our baby. When I turned the computer back on to get going with my priest, the computer turned on, but the monitor stayed in sleep mode. Thinking maybe a connection was loose, I checked all the
connections. Nothing there. Then I thought maybe the monitor was dead so I hooked it up to my tv (only other monitor I had to test the connection). Nothing there. Then I searched online, and got either no information, or so much information that who knows what to do with it. Nothing there. About this time, I gave up, determined to look for a fix on Sunday.
I still have a couple aces up my sleeve, but it is looking more and more unlikely that I will be able to get my computer running again. Also, money is tight, so it is going to be a while before I can afford a new one, and so now I sit, playing the waiting game, and feeling guilty, because this will likely affect my guild's progress negatively (not because I am irreplaceable, but because my replacement is seriously undergeared).
With all the extra time I now had in the weekend, I started thinking about my Monk, and how much I would miss playing him. (My wife was secretly happy...a break from the raiding schedule) Then I thought of the gambit of emotions I went through post 5.1. More then a few times I referred to my class as broken, both in this blog and with people I talked to about it. And to a certain degree, he is, but he is still playable, and my performance didn't drop so much as to necessitate replacing me. I just gotta try harder, and be a little better.
Hopefully I can get my computer running, even if not well, because I can deal with broken, as long as it is functionable...
P.S. If I can't get my computer fixed, then this blog might be taking a little vacation until I can get a new one.
