Flipping the Bird
Yeah … Cim tried Yikkan Izu a couple more times with the same result … splat. Look at him, just take a look at that so called Yikkan Izu. Yeah, I didn’t just fall off of the turnip truck. I’ve been to a few dances. THAT IS ANZU, I don’t care what kind of an alias he’s going around with these days, that is Anzu. I feel there may be some karmic justice at play here. I don’t suppose it has ANYTHING at all to do with the fact that we killed him 160ish times for a mount. I smell a rat.
A thought occurred to me … probably cause it’s tax time and preparing taxes has the same effect on me as tests do. I mean I’m not even DOING the taxes it’s just the forms for my cousin the accountant and I still freak out. This cartoon is me. Tests make me incredibly obtuse and nervous and I realized I behaved much the same way when I play.
The last attempt on that bird I was spamming Fel Flame while on the move … nothing was happening. OMG! Don’t tell me I need to replace my keyboard now, what the hell is the … oh. When I calmed down I realized that in the heat of the moment I apparently forget what keys are what, all knowledge drains right out and is replaced with hysteria. I had been spamming my minion’s attack key. Yeah … really, what must he have thought. Surprised he didn’t call me on that.
After years of test taking I finally realized that yes, when I first look at the questions they make no sense. I don’t know WHAT THE HELL they’re taking about. I learned to calmly look through all of the questions until one made sense. I then went back and found that now so did the ones that had been written in Sanskrit previously. Commence the test taking!
I have to figure out a WoW version of this. I haven’t yet but I’m hopeful. There must be an Azeroth equivalent. On my list of things to try is the “get snockered until I don’t even give a rat’s ass” approach but even if it’s successful it’s not really an approach I can endorse. I seem to get so worked up I can’t FIND his little flock of birdies. If any of you educators know a WoW method of overcoming test anxiety let me know. I’m all ears. I’ll hold on the snockering.
And oh, I must thank Matty. She recommended Ready Player One and I really enjoyed it. Okay, enough stalling. I have to go put my snow boots on and trudge through YET ANOTHER snowfall with the dogs. The only good thing about it is there’s unlikely to be a test so I don’t have to get snockered first.
