/Salute My Hero, Farewell Mr. Freeman

I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know a fuckin thing about Jeff Freeman. I didn’t talk to him anywhere besides in the comments of his blog and my own. There was one thing I did know about him though, and that was that he seemed a lot like me. He seemed like someone that I would want to be like when I got older, once I conquered the “troubles” in life, knew who I really was, and took a stand for what I wanted my life to be like. I guess I sort of constructed a fantasy of what his life was actually like.

Over the past year or so this blog hasn’t had many readers. Let’s be honest, I only know of 2 people who have checked my blog without seeing me say something stupid in a comment somewhere else and clicking my name. Those 2 people are Krones from Plaguelands and Jeff Freeman. Lets face it, Krones stopped a while ago (though I still ❤ him).

I actually think if it wasn’t for Krones that I never would’ve ever encountered Jeff Freeman.

I really am tore up inside which probably sounds pathetic to a lot of people, but it is just the truth. I don’t know why I post here most of the time, I think that I think if I continue to post that it will somehow better myself in the long run whether it be committing to things or perseverance through boredom or just to not doubt myself. I don’t know. All I know is that Jeff Freeman would be there to see what kind of shit I was spewing out of my mouth. That was the one thing I could count on.

My blog has gone to fucking shit since I started it and he hung in there with me. When I didn’t remember why I even bothered to post, he would be there.

We didn’t even fucking talk really, but for some reason he’d always have visited when I checked my stats. I don’t know why, I don’t think I ever said anything interesting.

I wanted to be like Jeff Freeman. He was my one small glimmer of a hope to be who I wanted to be, that I could fucking do it.

I’d like to think that he either saw something in me or was just nice enough a guy to show some fucking pity.

Regardless, Jeff Freeman has taught me a lesson. That I am a selfish bastard.

Rest in peace my friend, I wish I could’ve been there for you like you were for me.

Damn I am a seriously troubled/detached person. I guess my brain associated a lot of good feelings with a complete stranger, but I guess when you don’t allow very many people into your life you’ve gotta fill the voids somehow.

Lich King

So I rolled a priest and one of the mages (not my brother) rolled a pally. In total we have at least 4 people that we know will make it to 70 including me (I hope I make it to 70!!!) which is a pretty solid thing to have so far imo. We’re trying to recruit, we’ve got 2 guys in right now that seem okay, hopefully they don’t gquit like everybody else does lol.

I am currently 35 I believe. My brother is 50 on his Mage, my friend Jeremy is 46 or so on his Warrior, and our buddy Matt is 37ish on his Pally. We also have a 37 Hunter who recently joined as well as a 53 Pally who we’re hoping will stay with us since he’s older and more mature. But who knows, I’m not that mature amiright?

I was in a little bit of a slump recently, mainly because I rushed my warrior to 32 and then made a priest and did it all over again. Mainly because I was a bit stressed out thinking I’ve got to hit 70 and get geared and all this shit before the expansion and then Jeremy said something to me that calmed my ass down which was great. He said when Lich King comes out that progression is reset and no one will give a shit about who was the first to down Kiljaeden or whatever just like no one cares who cleared Naxx 2 years ago. The man has a fuckin point!

I just have to be 70 by November 13th. Then I can schedule some vacation days and wtf beat people leveling to 80 bitches! Such a relief.

I had one question though that I don’t think anyone else has raised yet. What happens to arenas? Will there still be a level 70 arena going on while people are leveling to 80 or will the arena just be in an off season type dealy?

Yeah I know it isn’t that important and it doesn’t even affect me right now either, but it’s all I got, so work with me here.

It has been good reading on Angus’ blog and Mr. Freeman has been a busy little bee as well. Pro-tip: If you don’t want me to read for a day or two just take it serious and tech, that shit fucking bores the shit out of me.
