Kixi Sparklebolt here again. Let's talk this week about distractions. We are supposed to be focused on training for the upcoming offensive to free Gnomeregan, but it is easy to get distracted.
For example, here I am at the Darkmoon Faire in Elwynn Forest. I came here because some guy in Ironforge handed me a piece of paper so that I could get some smaller pieces of paper. And though I have no use for pieces of paper, or a home to display them in, I accepted the one paper and went off to exchange it for the other ones. Does this help me fight troggs, Thermaplugg or even the Horde? No. Does this help me earn better equipment to train with? No. But I did get to dance with a night elf and his leashed dog. That was something.
There are good distractions and bad distractions, and for me, this was obviously a bad distraction. But I think sometimes it's good to have a little entertainment on the side to help us deal with our more serious endeavors.
What has been distracting you from your training? Have they been good or bad distractions? Or if you haven't strayed from your purpose, what keeps you focused?
Hardcider is pouring the ale this week to avoid last week's incident. I can't vouch for the cleanliness of the mugs though. I hope you brought your own.
