I was reading Mon’s blog and she had come across this challenge/questionnaire on Harpy Nest’s blog which had been started by Spellbound way back in 2011 and I thought that since I love nothing more than starting up challenges like this that I shall jump on the bandwagon.

The first thing you’ll probably learn about me, if you don’t know already, is I love the idea of themed posts but I’m notoriously bad at completing them, well completing them in a timely manner. I do have plans to go back and finish the alt week and dress up posts.
Anyway lets talk about me for a bit.
I’m Zeirah, a name that I like so much I use as part of my personal email which does draw some comments at times but I can live with that. In wow, I am a massive altoholic and raider.
I live in Australia, at the bottom end of it, where it never really gets warm which I mostly like but I do dream about the hot sunny days that the rest of the country gets in summer time. I shouldn’t say it never gets warm; in summer we do get days that hit 30 degrees but generally the next day drops back down to about 20 degrees so you never really get time to acclimatize to it.
I’m in the last 6 months of a uni degree and absolutely terrified about having to find a job soon, I’m really nervous that after 3 years of study I don’t know anything and I’m going to face a ton of interviews where I get tongue-tied and stuff it up or worse yet, I don’t get to the interview stage. In fact, I’m tossing up the idea of doing honours so I can avoid the issue of job hunting for another year but I’m having trouble deciding which of my two majors I like the most to specialise in and also I don’t think I can really afford to be out of the workforce for another year, real life is damn expensive.
I haven’t been playing wow as much lately mainly because about 4 months ago I started on a health kick to get out and change the sedentary lifestyle I’ve fallen into. So currently I’m running every day and swimming 3 times a week and that has given me a huge burst of energy and I find that I don’t have the urge to log on for as much time as I used to. In fact the running bug has overtaken me so much that for the first time in a few years my christmas present to me wasn’t something wow related but a new pair of running shoes and some fancy shmancy running pants. They don’t make me run faster unfortunately but they make me feel like a runner lol. I was toying with the idea of making a running blog to be abl to rave about running to some like minded people but I realised that posts that consist of “huff puff, ran slightly further today, didn’t die!” aren’t really that interesting so I just read other people’s ones.
However, having said that; since I’ve started getting back into the swing of levelling alts again (dk and a herald of the titans priest) my game time has slowly crept back up again.
Anyway enough about me for now. I like the daily topics of this questionnaire so much I might go and write all the posts now and then just schedule them to post automatically; that way I might finally finish a challenge.
