07:04 am: The beginning of the end
Classes resume at my school starting today. The last week of summer vacation went by rather quickly, as I spent most of my time reading and watching TV. Autumn rains moved in several days ago, bringing cooler temperatures, so it has been much more comfortable recently.

The fall schedule at school is always a jumble of strange hours as we have several national holidays plus the school festival and sports day on top of the switch from first to second semester. I'm interested in seeing what the school festival will be like this year. In previous years, when it was just the girls' school, the students were divided based on their homerooms. That is, all the "homeroom 3" students (1-3, 2-3, and 3-3, the English majors) were together on a team competing against the other teams. Last year, though, with the introduction of the Ritsumeikan students, they mixed up the homerooms, putting students in completely different majors together on the same team. I wonder if they plan on doing the same this year.

In Warcraft news, my guild has formed a partnership with another small guild to attempt killing bosses that require 25 people. Last week we took down a boss called High King Maulgar for the first time, and I won a piece of fancy shoulder armor. The next goal is to get Gruul the Dragonkiller. We've tried him for two weeks now, but haven't managed to get him below 5%. It shouldn't be much longer, though.

Ouch! That sounds like your main tank is going down too quickly.

Our best attempts were with a druid tank, though I don't know how much of that is because we tried with a warrior tank first and people were still lacking practice at the beginning. Once people got the hang of minimizing shatter damage, it worked a lot better. Now we just need to work on squeezing out enough DPS to get Gruul down before he's too strong.

It really is an interesting exercise in coordination and teamwork.

You are my hero! Congratulations on High King Maulgar and the shoulder armor. One of the other teachers has a banner in her room that says something like, "Success is getting up just one more time than falling down." You and your team just keep on trying. I love it. I keep seeing parallels with my classes (and life) and playing WoW. If I had time to do a theme in my class, it would be WoW, I think.

I'm glad the weather is cooler. We're getting some nice days, too.
