I found a stress diet

We should all stick to this most ingenious stress diet!

[transcribed from image]

Stress Diet

Breakfast

half grapefruit
1 slice whole-wheat toast
250ml skim milk

Lunch

125g lean grilled fish
1 cut steamed zuccini
1 Tim Tam biscuit
herb tea

Mid-Afternoon Snack

rest of packet of Tim Tams
2 litres of chocolate ice scream
1 bottle Ice Magic

Dinner

2 loaves garlic bread
1 large pepperoni and mushroom pizza
1 large jug beer
3 Milky Way bars
1 entire frozen cheesecake eaten directly from freezer

Important Dieting Tips

  1. If no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.
  2. If you drink lo-cal drink with a chocolate bar they cancel each other out.
  3. When eating with someone else, calories don’t count if you both eat the same amount.
  4. Food used for medicinal purposes never counts (e.g. lemon and honey, brandy, chicken soup, Sara Lee cheesecake).
  5. Movie-related food such as scorched almonds, Jaffas, popcorn, don’t count because they are simply part of the whole entertainment experience and not part of one’s personal fuel.
  6. Broken biscuits contain no calories. The process of breaking causes calorie leakage.

Up close to a Goanna

I came across a Goanna on my travels.. Must say, although this one was rather cautius of me and kept his distance, you do good to uphold quite an amount of respect for them.IMG_7564

He was looking at me for whenever I moved.

IMG_7562Its’ tail was a lot longer than you would expect.

Playing Guild Wars 2

When playing an MMO, you normally have goals like reaching the highest level, then getting the best gear and then playing the so-called ‘end-content’. In my rather long playing time in GuildWars I have reached a few ‘Milestones’ like making it to the maximum level (which isn’t hard in GW2) and reaching a few achievements in the Game. For example making 200 Gold, buying the right to be commander (lead people – you get a blue symbol over your head for everyone on the map to see), finishing my personal story with my main or defeating a hard boss in an arena fight (Which gives you a title you may wear under your name). The end content in GW2 is dungeons, big bosses like tequatl (a big dragon, who can only be killed with a lot of teamwork and organisation), and the living world, a really nice idea, to keep players playing, because there will be new content to explore every two weeks.

At the moment I am trying to get 100% world exploration with one of my characters, which theoretically isn’t all too much to do, if you keep at it for a while, the problem is, that it takes a lot of nerve, and you don’t always want to drag your friends through it, so doing it alone is a little boring aswell. The next big step then would be the crafting of a legendary weapon, but this is more a dream then ever becoming reality due to the enormous amount of time and money you have to put into it.

As you may have noticed, it doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?

So why am I still playing it?

I could just say, I don’t have anything else to play at the moment, which is true in a way, but not entirely. For example, I have still not gotten myself involved with the new season two of the living world – and people say, it’s supposed to be really good! So there is something to do, which I am looking forward to.

But what I have noticed is, that I have been playing GW2 too long to still be spending a lot of time on it and not getting bored at some point and just quitting. True, I could still do so many things, but that will always be the case in an MMO.

Let me give an example, what I could start doing right away in Guild Wars 2:

  • continue mapping the world (Done! – 100% complete *Yay*)
  • start farming gold, karma and rare crafting items for a legendary (Done :D)
  • only farm gold, because I’m greedy, and like having lots of numbers in front of that Gold coin :D
  • level one of my many lowlevel characters to the max level (one more to go)
  • play some PvP, which i kind of have been avoiding, but I have found it to be fun recently
  • play some WvW
  • continue the personal story of one of my level 80 (max-level) characters – or a low-level one, for that matter
  • get involved with the living world and all the mysteries and rumors about defeating the elder dragons of GW2
  • go achievement hunting, get my Achievement Points up

and so on…

So in the end, I have a look through my friend list, forget what I was wanting to do, and help them achieve their goal.

– or just randomly help a new player :D

(feel welcome to take up that indirect offer (: )
