Frustration Over Brunch

"To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles." - T.F. Hodge

Welcome to a late, late edition of Sunday Brunch here at Holy Shock. I hope you guys are having a great day. I know if you read that quote above, then you probably are assuming that I have not been having a great day. Well, let's just say that 2013 as a whole, has not been a great; however, I really do not feel like talking about all of my issues, problems, or whatever else people label the bad things in life. Instead I wanted to take a moment and remind the readers of Holy Shock that no matter what life throws at you, just stay focused on the end game!

I know that is pretty deep compared to the usual stuff that I post around here, but Sundays are the grab bag of posts. Sometimes they may be about gaming or the site here, and other times, as I once said in the disclaimer for the Sunday Brunch series, they may be about me and what I am dealing with in my life (be it in game or out).

I do have a couple quick things to mention! The first is that I am not going to be continuing with the auction house reports for the short term. I just have not had the time available to dedicate to this series, both in game and here at the blog. I have really enjoyed doing that particular series, and so hopefully in the future we will be able to bring it back.

I am really pleased with the views on my YouTube channel for the content that has been going up there. If you haven't checked it out, then please make sure to subscribe to the channel and tell me what you like and what you don't like. Right now I am uploading videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Right now the channel has been mostly focused on World of Wacraft with the occasional Minecraft video. Moving forward, I am wanting to start uploading some Hearthstone videos and bring back some form of Minecraft. So if you guys have any preferences, then make sure and let me know.

I have dabbled with live streaming on and off over the last few months, but I just feel like my system is too old to really do it justice. Having said that, I am going to work over the next couple weeks to see if I can't find a way to stream some sort of content at least one or two days a week. It is more of a technology problem versus anything else.

I have been playing a lot of Hearthstone lately. I am really enjoying that game! I also have spent a few hours playing Path of Exile (PoE). I have to admit that it is everything that Diablo III should have been. That being said, I find I do not enjoy playing the dungeon crawler games alone. I can see my interest already fading in PoE. I have really been fighting the urge to beam back up to Star Trek Online (STO). I blame Blizzcon for that. How can I do that you ask? Well, when they introduced the garrison concept and how you would find/recruit followers, it made me reminisce of my crews on board the S.S. T.N.A.!

Well, today's post was a little different than the usual Sunday Brunch, but that happens every now and then. Are you all playing anything exciting or new? Let me know in the comments section! I hope you all have a great rest of your day and I will see you next time!
