    I Used to Play Wow

    I have invested far too much time in that game also. A level 70 troll priest. A level 70 resto druid. A level 70 holy paladin. I played for two years, got tired of it and stopped.  I don't miss it.  I do miss the friends I made there, though.

    It's Better

    I've tried other games, at one point I had the limit on toons, but I can't not play this. It keeps me in line. I do occasionally get burned out, but normally you can find me on from Friday morning until Sunday evening, stopping only for food, restroom breaks and sleep.
