Goals and Ambitions.

2 lofty ideals, that’s why you rarely find them here on this blog. Sure I have a list of things I would like to do before I quit WoW. 

Spinks, and Kyr both had posts stating about Goals, and other soft nougaty center stuff. I blacked out, and came too with a Jack Daniels in one hand, and a Fatty Roast Beef Sandwich with a Baby on it. Thats right kids…I do eat babies.

So after thinking about it I thought it was high time I became one of these successfull people and got me some goals. I shared them with my guild, but I’ll enlighten you folks a little more.

1. Find a Rogue Gold Farming Chinese Chick have her fall in love with me, then take advantage of her worse then the communism government.  – This would knock out my Asian chick fetish thing, and my need to farm gold. Dear lord if we had kids….hello Gevlon status.

2. Try for Baron Rivendares Mount, and fail every single Gosh Darn Time. – Why plan for success when failure is almost assured.

3. Kill Bigger, and Uglier stuff.- Ah yea, that’s what I like to do, I’m sociopathic..with a homocidal tendency. No, that doesnt mean I like guys, well if they look like hot chicks, we’ll talk. If they look like hot asian chicks, and farm gold, we’ll really talk.

4. Make Everyone in the guild hate me, but make myself so indispenable they need me. – I don’t know I just think it’s funny everyone making fun of me, but when asked what mage they must have on their raid…frostscourge.  Kind of makes me hot.  
5. Become the most hated mage on the server. – Same concept, but I just want to be so infamous it’s sick. Like Jack Sparrow, when the guy goes, “You are the worst pirate I have ever heard of.” Jack’s reply, “Ah, but you HAVE heard of me. ”
6. Sit and watch the Sunrise over Feathermoon Stronghold.- Kind of a palate cleanser really. I hate that shit hole.

7. DESTROY EVERY SINGLE THING IN THAT GOSH DARN SUPPRESSION ROOM for old times sake. – I hate that fricking place, Mages hell, I was a button mashing son of a biotch for 6 months, thanks to BC I was freed from it. Part of me kind of misses it though.
8. Do Upper Spire, lower spire for old times sake. -See if I can solo it. Lord Drakenmysac or whatever.

9. GET MY DANG PROTO DRAKE!!!! – seriously….seriously where is it.

10. Tell everyone the secret to the WoW Universe. – I have it in a sealed bottle in my room, and when I leave WoW, and spam Trade Chat with it, the WoW will explode like the Matrix.  

My point is this, it’s nice to have goals and ambitions, but this is a game. I don’t think games should be taken so seriously, even real life isn’t supposed to be taken to seriously…or you’ll never get out alive.

  1. Why do goals make the game serious?

    • Well when you have goals it sets you up for a success/failure paradigm. If I do reach these goals, I am a success, if not I am a failure. Are you a failure if you don’t reach your goals.

      I think maybe I have a problem with the semantics of it. Goals are maybe to uppity of a term, perhaps more of “Things that I want to get done in game” suits me better.

      To me Goals are something that MUST be done, I don’t want to HAVE to do anything in my games but have fun. I’ll leave my goals to real life.

      • Definitely a semantics problem.

        For me, a goals is something I would like to do, there’s not success or failure. I think of them as more of a target than a task, but I’m not a Type-A personality.

      • A goal is a tool. It’s a tool to get you from point A to point B, perhaps via point C. You set goals every day whether you know it or not.

        Goal: I think I’ll log into WoW today.
        Goal: I think I’ll run the daily heroic today.

        The point of a goal isn’t the destination, it’s the journey. Because ultimately once you’ve reached that destination, what then? You move to another one. So really the point of a goal is the journey.

        Goals give you a direction so you’re not running circles around Dalaran. So sit back and enjoy the ride! 🙂

        This applies to real life as well.

  2. Whatever the goal may be defined as, I think somehow you have come up with a worthy list.

    Goodluck with No.1, but I already think of you as Jack Sparrow
