Day 12 - A usual day in my life/online

Fortunately, at least for me, my usual day is fairly boring and routine.  Here's an average day, now that the weather is good and the snow is al gone.

5:00 - Wake up and start my first coffee.  I generally make 6oz of espresso in my awesome Bialetti espresso maker.  I can put the water on, and by the time I'm finished with prepping my oatmeal, I've got awesome coffee.  Personally, I pour it right into the cup and drink it, but I use a Bodun milk frother to make my wife lattes.  Hey, coffee is one of the good things I make, don't judge.

At this point I'm usually either playing on an alt, reading blogs, or (lately) reading some 40k.  I generally try and avoid doing any log analysis during this time, and I'm not a big fan of doing dailies.

6:00 - Make a new pot of coffee and (attempt) to wake up my wife.  This is a process that can take a while, as she is NOT a morning person.

6:30 - Out the door and biking to work.  If I'm in a hurry I take the straight shot on the roads and get to work pretty quick (it's about 5 miles) - otherwise I'll get in a 20mi ride.

7/8:00 till 4/5:00 - Conduct business at an engineering firm where I'm the local IS Manager.  This is where I usually find 15 or 20 minutes to do a blog post at lunch, and go over some WoL reports if I think we're having issues.

4/5:00 - Bike home.

5:00-8:00 - Raid, hopefully, on W/Th/Sat.  Otherwise I do some schoolwork (here's to paying for a degree online through Phoenix) and/or keep working on my mage.  He needs to hit 85 so my guild can kill him.  Dwarf mages are friggin rare!

8:00/10:00 - hang out with my wife and either get my ass kicked at scrabble/Trivial Pursuit, or watch some Iron Chef.

All in all, it's a pretty boring day.  I don't spend a lot of time stressing over WoW anymore, becuase we're either going to raid, or we're not.  I'm not an officer of a big guild anymore, and I don't think I ever want to go back to that point.  We don't spend alot of time online as a guild outside of raiding.  On raid nights, we have some folks that have to get to work right after the raid, or get to bed since they're on the East Coast.  Half our guild raids with another guild on a seperate server on Mon/Tue, and while we all have alts - most of us aren't interested in getting them into raiding or even heroics - they're played for fun.

Right now we're working on H-Maloriak, but I don't think we have a full raid week available till June.  Ah well.

Tomorrow - People I admire (it's a short list).
