Old Friends, Frugal and Fickle

Although I tell myself I set my home in Classic to Theramore because of convenience, I’m pretty sure that’s not the main reason. Classic is about the only place in life that I can erase the bad times and go back to the good. I like hanging out with Jaina and Pained. Theramore is intact, nothing bad has happened there and Jaina has not changed. It’s a happier time for both of us I think.

I was intent on being able to buy a mount the minute I reached level 40. I was so frugal a level 20 Murloc could kill my level 35 self because I didn’t buy many spells.

The Hunter it must be, so there she is.

I feel kind of bad, I told Cat I’d be right back when Classic got here and nope, didn’t do it. And now I’ve been distracted by trying to figure out Huntering as I have no idea how anymore. I’ve just been running from new shiny to new shiny. Sorry Cat. We’ll go mount hunting soon, I promise. I just need to get Zor a bow and then Kitwynn needs a …
