So sorry I’ve been so quiet. Its been a combination of real life things with the holiday season upon us as well as a forced break from FFXIV for a bit. Because my levels are all still within the range that is affected by the upcoming update, I’ve opted to wait before I continue my levels. Honestly I’m really excited as the updates they mentioned sounds like I will be spending time relearning the UI, which is awesome!
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I’ve found it to be true. I’m really missing playing my little Lalafell. In the mean time, I’ve been toying with a sandbox game I came across recently called Minecraft. I am really enjoying that as well and have decided that it is my official distraction while waiting on FFXIV.
I’ve made a nice house complete with paintings and multipurpose rooms, a bookshelf, a lava filled fireplace, a mossy cobblestone “rug” that I made from mossy coblestones only found in dungeon areas. It has a castle built on top of my house that has some really nice views of the scenery.
I have this amazing “Lavafall” in my front area that when I logged in the first time it started burning all the nearby trees to where now I have this everlasting field of floating torches that don’t go out. I created a farm plot with wheat (that looks a little like asparagus), bamboo/reeds, sapling trees, cacti, and red & yellow flowers.
I will put up some Minecraft pictures soon… Maybe on Friday now since my FFXIV plans have kinda been scrapped.. lol I was hoping to spend black friday hiding from any real life insanity, and exploring the new updates in FFXIV, however maintenance has been moved from today (11/24) to Friday (11/26) so it add one extra day to my deliberate hiatus.
