So, this time of the year is not only the busiest time in terms of my school responsibilities, but it’s also a busy time of the year for WoW holiday events.
This weekend, we had Pirate’s Day, and the start of Brewfest.
Brewfest lasts for 2 weeks, where I still need to earn a ton of tickets to get the total of 350 that I need to buy my outfit for the /dance achievement. Then, I’ll quickly go back and return all the clothing to get the other achievement I need (joining the brew of the month club), and maybe also get a pink elephant pet out of the deal… I skipped some holiday stuff in January & February (when I was writing my master’s thesis), so I won’t get my meta-achievement yet.
Next week, we also have the harvest festival. I don’t see any achievements for it, but I hear there will be food…
Then, in October, we have Hallow’s End (which I finished last year). The Day of the Dead falls on November 1st & 2nd (it’s new).
Then, in early November, we get the Pilgrim’s Bounty holiday (also new). I’m really excited about the Pilgrim’s bounty because that’s the Thanksgiving holiday event where we get a Plump Turkey pet to follow around our moonkin forms. What moonkin doesn’t want a plump turkey friend?
So, that’s what we have to look forward to over the next few months, and somewhere in there, I need to also complete my comprehensive/candidacy exams for my PhD program…
