Making the world a safer place

My big news this week is that I received word from CBP that I passed my interview. Yay! Now I'm just waiting on Homeland Security to finish the background check. Goodness knows how long that will take.

Aside from that, I've been playing a lot of Warcraft. For one thing, my guild finally defeated the main boss of Mount Hyjal, Archimonde, a couple weeks ago. That was quite thrilling. We're hoping to keep making progress in Black Temple while we still can.

You see, there will soon be another Warcraft expansion, called Wrath of the Lich King. The expansion will introduce a lot of new content, making most of the old stuff obsolete. Most people estimate that the expansion will be released in late November, though a firm date hasn't been given.

One of my brothers was lucky enough to have been randomly selected to participate in beta testing the expansion, and he has been letting me try out some of the new content. I made a new type of character called a Death Knight. The Death Knight characters start out having been corrupted by the Lich King to be evil, but they are eventually redeemed and welcomed back by their race leaders as heroes.

So far I've mainly done the introductory quests, but I'm starting to get a feel for the playstyle. Unlike some classes that only need to push buttons for one or two abilities, the Death Knight has a lot of different abilities to juggle.
