If you follow me on twitter (which you should. If not go and follow me right now, go on, I’ll wait) you’ll know that I could immediately log on to play the new expansion. Why you may ask? Well since Akabeko from Red Cow Rise spent most of the morning with me on twitter, I dedicate this post and it’s style to her.
Was swamped with homework so I was up till 11pm working on it. When midnight rolled around I thought about logging but I could only imagine what it would be like so I decided to wait until morning, instead I:
I went to sleep. I woke up at 7 the next morning and decided that instead of getting on Anslym I would wait until I can actually dedicate more than a few minutes to playing. Instead I rolled (*snort* see what I did there?) a draenei monk named: Niaal. I got him to level 4, 1 level away from learning “roll” and noticed that it was time to head on out to class:
I make it to campus at around 8:05, grab a coffee, and head over to my calculus class and get seated and pull out twitter. So the tweeting begins:
Anslym: Tell me of your Pandaria experiences! I’m living vicariously through you!
Redcow: @Anslym I’m salivating over MoP while not having logged in since yesterday! *__________*
Keep in mind that before I left for class I contemplated long and hard about skipping my math class. I figured that if I skipped once it would happen again and I want to be a good student so I went. At this point in time now we’re already started the class and it’s all a basic, BASIC I tell you, review of trig.
Anslym: @redcow I’m ready to throw my math book and storm out of this place screaming: “PANDARIA NEEDS MY TOTEMS!”
Redcow: @Anslym I KNOW THAT FEEL “flips every table”
Anslym: @redcow *Every single table. Every one.*
We had just begun talking about graphing trig functions, something I’ve done every year for the past 4 years. I knew this stuff. I shouldn’t have come to class. I was sitting here loathing the prof for not telling me in advance not to come to class because I already knew what he was teaching. If the tables weren’t bolted down:
But we carry on…
Anslym: @redcow What a terrible idea coming to school today was. I’m going to be useless.
I swear this was one of those classes where the clock goes ahead 2 minutes and back 1.
Anslym: @redcow this is what I’m going to be doing very shortly.
Redcow: @Anslym oh lord that is spectacular
Anslym: @redcow The pandas need us, Akabeko, they NEED us!
Redcow: @Anslym *screaming*
The conversation then goes on to talk about writing this post, about naming our inanimate objects, and about adding each other on RealID. Math class FINALLY finishes and I mosey on to wait for my English lecture to start at 11:30. Keep in mind that my math class ends at 9:45. I pull twitter out again and imagine my shock and horror when I read this:
Redcow: Oh I’m pleased to see all these female npcs on shen zin su.
Anslym: @redcow you’re playing T_T
Redcow: @Anslym I….I didn’t want to say anything. But I have to go to bed soon anyways ;-;
My feels on the inside were:
Just trying to get a little sneak peak into Pandaland!
English finishes rather quickly, it’s my only class that requires me to take notes from dictation so my fingers were a’ flyin’ over the keys and I tried to get in everything Prof said. I had a 2 hour break before my physics lecture so I took up refuge in the science building and began dealing with recruitment stuffs. Finally my last class, physics rolled around, and I was almost home free. Two downsides, the class is an 1:30 hours AND it’s physics. Regardless I manage to sit through the lecture on centripetal force and we’re about to be dismissed when the prof. asks “Does anyone have any questions?” horror strikes when a girl raises her hand. I almost:
But I resist. Finally we’re let out and if you’ve ever been at my campus you know that trying to leave a room with 150 people while another 150 people are trying to get into the class makes the whole ordeal a clusterfuck. I missioned on!
I made it to the bus stop and waited for my slow ass bus to arrive:
Finally made it home and got my laptop:
Logged in and experienced Pandaria:
Stay tuned for part 2 where I talk about zoning into Pandaland, with a lot less gifs.
