I’ve taken a break from Final Fantasy XIV, I played a lot to level up to max level the classes I wanted to play before the expansion launched, and when the expansion launched I felt I had reached the limit. The new content of the expansion is also much harder, which is difficult for my main class black mage, so it’s back to doing daily duties and expansion… oh wait I cannot, because SE has removed temporarily the XP gained for those whose class is max level when the expansion launched, and considering I’ve already reached my limit about the daily duties… Anyway, so I figured I should take a break from the game for a while. My room is part of the guild house so it will still be there when I come back.
I’ve dabbled back in Guild Wars 2 and played my necromancer, managed to get her to max level, and since the expansion was launching in october when my necromancer was getting to max level, might as well buy the expansion to get to the new areas and access the new traits system.
As for my Pagan life, the coven I was a part of has dissolved and no more. Quite a few are moving away, for studies or work, so it was decided to end the coven. It was quite a journey and I learned so many things in the coven and it made me a better person as well.
I was aimless for a short while. I’ve had interests into Druidry, and The Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids in particular, and I bought their bardic course years ago but never got around to do the course. So now I’ve decided to make it my main focus for a while.
I want to have a Druid altar but my cat who still climbs, does not listen to me, destroys my stuff, chews and destroys my stuff, and plays around, it’s very hard to keep anything from Percy. He even chew a box I had put the documents in, now it has a few holes, so I changed the place I kept the box and put it higher.
Since I keep a few things on a place next to my kitchen and the alleyway, like the autumn decorations, my Brighid statue, my witch/mojo bottle, a gargoyle and warrior in the entryway, I’ve placed them closer to the kitchen so I could use the rest of this small space for my Druid altar. So far I put there my wand, my athame, a rock, my favorite candleholder,
I’ve already found a few items and bought: a Mint-Tin Altar, a Mini Chalice with Symbol (wood w/stainless steel and Awen Symbol), an Awen Box, an Irish Harp pendant. I plan to add more items later, like a tree like that one, but now these will do. As for the pendant, I’m inspired by the witch.s pouch concept so I plan to get “druid” pouches, one for each rank, so I plan to put the harp pendant in my bardic pouch once I get one.
