Friday’s Book In Review: The Martian!

Andy_Weir_at_NASA_JSC-cropPreface: In Early November, I visited my local Goodwill (a thrift store) to see what I could purchase for family and friends during the Christmas season. When you first walk in there is a set of bins that you can shuffle through. Mostly old phone cases, small bags, scarf’s, and hats. I came across a purple iPad mini case that was purple. Purple is my favorite color, so I picked it up and it was slightly heavier then I thought the case should be. I flipped open the case, and found a kindle inside. I was sort of stunned. I payed three dollars for a five dollar case and a one hundred dollar device. The great people at amazon helped me update the firmware and reset and register the device under my name. Thank you Amazon. You guys rock!

The Martian is a science fiction novel by Andy Weir that was self published in 2011 that was adapted into a film featuring Matt Damon in 2015. There were several place’s around the web, including Good Read’s that has suggest this book to me. The story follows an American astronaut, Mark Watney, as he becomes stranded alone on Mars in the year 2035 after the rest of his crew believes he is dead after a dust storm.

Mark Watney is logging everything he can and tries desperately to repair the communications dish to let NASA know he is alive.

I do not want to spoil the story for anyone who has not read the book or watched the movie; however, Weir was very much inspired by science to wright this book. He worked very hard to have accurate information. There is not a lot of fluff. It is very clean in its approach to the science. I really am enjoying the pace of the book so far.

I just started reading the book but as you can see I am really enjoying it. After reading the book, I will definitely watch the movie.

Weekly Reset: Upcoming Events in Azeroth!

The fireworks celebration in game on Monday was awesome! I always enjoy them at the end of the year. Now we are looking forward at what this month has in store for us!

From now to the 9th of January the Battleground Bonus Event is up! Starting Sunday, January 7th to Saturday, January 13th the Darkmoon Faire is back. I have always loved the concerts there and to gather all of the pets! Even the petting zoo at the Darkmoon Faire is fun. To learn more about the Darkmoon Faire visit Blizzard’s page here or WoWhead’s page here for a guide!

January 9th to the 16th is the Legion Dungeon Event. That means that while the event is active, the final boss of each Legion dungeon awards an extra item when defeated!

The weekly event for the 16th of January to the 23rd is Pet Battles! While the event is active, your pets will earn experience at triple the usual rate! So, get out there and battle. During this event as well you will have a quest to defeat five players at a PvP Pet battle. You can earn charms for this & it is worth it! Also, as a tip, you should be doing your garrison (and yes your garrison still exist!) menagerie daily quest and any world quest on the Broken Shore. That will also earn you pet charms.  If you need help setting up your menagerie, wowhead has a wonderful guide that will help you along here!

From the 23rd to the 30th Burning Crusade Time walking! Call of the Scarab is January 21st to the 23rd & last but not least, the Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl is January 30th!

This month has a lot to do! Good luck and may your drops be legendary!

Welcome!

Hi, My name is Andrea. I am giving this a go as a new years resolution. I am not sure where this will take me, but I am up for trying!

I am a World Of Warcraft player. I am a proud member of the Convert to Raid community on the Aerie Peak server.  I have been playing wow since Cataclysm. (Shortly before actually. However I am not counting that!) I also have toon’s in Alea Iacta Est on Earthen Ring. Since we were talking about New Year’s Resolutions, my goal for Battle For A zeroth is to have every class and spec at max level. For the Horde & Alliance.

I have been in CTR (Convert To Raid) for three and a half years. Not that AIE is a bad guild. I just wanted to play Alliance a little more this expansion. I figured since I shown interest in being an officer of the guild to pull my priest Zephirah, the toon that I have had since day one, into the Alliance fold.

I do; however, miss the Horde side of things. A lot more then I thought I would. AIE has a lot of good people. They do equal CTR for great people & lets face it the two guilds have been wonderful in a plethora of way’s. Yes, every guild has its issues. Especially mega guilds like these two are. Nothing is perfect or what you ever expect it to be. I do think though, you get what you put into it. If you are a positive person that tries, then you will not go unnoticed. Kindness in and out of video games is very important. Everyone has a bit of awesome in them, even behind the pixels.

With that being said, I recently have joined a different guild for the Horde. Blood of The Scribe. It is very different then the previous two guilds. The others are very PG13 and BotS is very NC17. If you happen to drop an F bomb or dirty joke, it is fine. Just as long as your not a complete butt-head and being rude to people, then you are fine. I am falling in love with this guild quickly. For all the personalities & quick witted things we see in guild chat.

So, that’s my Warcraft story. I also enjoy Diablo, Starcraft & Hearthstone.  I currently do not play Overwatch on my pc but on my brother’s Xbox, every once and a while. I pretty much enjoy everything Blizzard has produced.

Other then video games, I enjoy a wide array of music. Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative, Industrial, Electronica, Dubstep. There are few pop related songs I like, but not much. I can have full conversations about a bunch of artist that I love.

I also enjoy reading and would love to read a novel a month for the year 2018.

My goal / New Years Resolution for this space is to wright blogs about video games (not just blizzard stuff even though that will be the biggest focus!), Music, Book’s that I would be reading or would like to read, and any other random geeky things I find to be interesting.

I believe at the moment I would like to publish three days a week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It will very on what the post will contain but the goal here is to have fun. I will post a  topic schedule soon!

Thank you for reading! Happy New year! I wish you a happy 2018 & good times!

Rock on ~ Andrea AKA Zephirah
