Ugh. I wish I could be like most of you guys/gals.When I come home from work (or get done working FROM home) I want to wind down with a book. Or POSSIBLY some TV if I'm desperate. I feel duty-bound to level up my new priest (granted, since he's 30 now, the STV curse has hit, and he's set for PLENTY of grinding).I just can't find it relaxing. I'm a very on-edge tense person, and the slightest things tend to completely set me off. I'm borderline obsessive-compulsive about some things- like my grinding routine. Pull with Holy Fire, Vamp Embrace (if partied), SW:P, Mind Blast, PW:S (if not partied), Mind Flay x2, Mind Blast, Wand 'till dead.If my little 'sequence' gets the slightest bit screwed up (like a resisted Mind Blast, or Mind Flay; or even worse- when my SW:P is resisted, and I've already put up Vamp Embrace) I fly off the handle.Same thing goes for Counter Strike. I have my good days, and my bad days. More bad days than good days. When I get killed and I saw it coming, and could have prevented it or killed my enemy first and just failed at it- I get completely angry, get the urge to throw things, start yelling and swearing at myself... lol a temper tantrum, 20 years in the making.Only thing I find relaxing about WOW is fishing. Some people ask me how I got fishing up so high without falling asleep, I tell them- I listen to music, occasionally my eyes shift up to the TV; things like that.I can't chat while I grind- my guildmates know I'm -in the zone- I can't chat while I fish, the one time I miss the bobber because 'LAWLPWNT' the level 10 rogue wants gold, is the one time I roll a hordie to gank him.Chris
