Looking Back at 2009 and Forward to 2010
02/01/2010 alle 01:36
Here we are, folks, right before the start of not only a new year but also a new decade. Hopefully, next year will provide us with new opportunities, new inventions, maybe even new resolutions—although, on second thought, I've really yet to meet someone dedicated to carrying out a New Year's resolution—and hopefully more happiness to everyone around the world.
Today we should take some brief time to look back on the year 2009, and take a moment to remember all the changes in our lives. It could be something as simple as getting a car. Or maybe you have a memory from something WoW-related, be it inside or outside the game itself.
What is your best memory of 2009?
Remember, you can include something WoW-related! And
what are you looking forward to when 2010 comes?
I've included a reflection of my own here, as well as one of
's. If you're interested in seeing the reflections, they are immediately after the break. :)
Looking back at 2009, my best World of Warcraft memories didn't actually occur in-game. I was lucky enough to attend BlizzCon at the Anaheim Convention Center in August, and it blew me away. The Cataclym reveal during the opening ceremony remains ingrained in my memory; as the audience screamed and applauded during the trailer, I felt a refreshing wave of excitement for the future of WoW. I'll be thinking of that moment when I finally get to load Cataclysm onto my computer and explore the new Azeroth.
My other favorite memory from my trip was attending the fansite summit at Blizzard Headquarters. Simply put, the place is amazing. I always assumed Blizzard must be a fun place to work, and that thought was solidified when I saw that the new library is full of "reference materials" like Advanced Dungeons & Dragons manuals, console games, novels and magazines. I also got to meet developers like Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street, and it's obvious after spending a few minutes with them that they're all excited about their work. While we can all disagree with the team's decisions from time to time, it's clear they honestly want to make WoW as fun as possible.
My reflection of 2009 isn't as adventurous as Togikagi's, but it's still worth a mention even though it may sound cheesy: Believe it or no, it was when I got my iPod touch. For a few months before I got my iTouch, I had really wanted an iPhone. My current phone was a fairly outdated three-year-old flip phone purchased from the then-existing company Cingular (now AT&T). About a month before I got my iTouch, I switched to a different carrier for personal reasons, so I couldn't get an iPhone anymore. The iPod touch, though it can't make calls or take pictures, was close enough so I decided to get it. It works great, and I use it almost single day. It especially came in handy for replacing my
. :P It's been great for checking my Facebook and email accounts, playing games with certain apps, and listening to my growing music list. I love it!
