Several things are pulling my spirits down these days. Not many people visiting my site one week after its launched, exams are around the corner, the only tv series I watch is officially cancelled, lack of mmorpgs to play... *sigh*
What do you do to pick up your spirit?

Sounds depressing. Which TV series, may I ask?

Grab a camera and head outside, it's springtime and lots of plants are in full bloom. Life is to short to sit in front of a screen, be a druid in RL to and enjoy nature.

Perhaps you need to announce your web site a bit? Timing wise it might be a bit off too, I remember when CoH was freshly out and WoW and EQ2 were still in beta people seemed a bit desperate to try to connect up with friends. They've been out for awhile now and I suspect people have either connected up or else they have moved onto new friendships.
Perhaps if you get the word out a bit more and some new MMOGs games hit the market it'll get the activity it deserves!
And yes, which series got cancelled. There was one I was really digging that got cancelled. I can't remember the name but it was about a girl that seemed to be supposed to be the anti-christ only she was fighting her destiny.
Glidelph! That's exactly what I was thinking yesterday. My white Redbud tree is blooming and sprouting new leaves and I was visualizing a photograph of it.

Wasn't that series called Point Pleasant? :)

Oh I have a own personal grove that I go to nearly everyday. Its a small park situated right in the middle of my university campus. In the center of that park is a ring of tall trees and a clearing in the center. Its so serene to sit in the clearing, and just stare at the trees, really quiet too. Some of my old eq friends has even teased that I've turned into a real world druid *chuckles*
As for the tv series, its Star Trek: Enterprise. I have mixed feelings about it truly and officially cancelled. On one hand its been very influential to my life, and the decisions I've had to make in the past. On the other hand, this new trek series doesn't quite live up to the name Star Trek. Its been over glamorized, actioned up and sexed up. Even though there are promises of new star trek series a few years down the road, I can't help feel that "my star trek" has been irrevocably lost. One thing for sure, this is the singular event that has dragged down my spirits this week. I guess, I just have thank my lucky stars that there was TOS, TNG, DS9 and move on. Its gonna be tougher than quitting EQ.

You could always do what I did. and just stop watching TV. I always knew which shows and when they would be cancelled. It was always the year after I started watching them ...
I'm going on almost 15 years now, and it is still the best decision I ever made.

I dont own a TV but I have a dvd mail order service that sends me all the good series without ads. All the Star Treks are on it as well as my favorite, Bablyon 5!!
Hands in the dirt makes me happy. Spending time in even a tiny garden, or working on a planter full of herbs for the kitchen and for health can completely change my day.

Here's to us hands in the dirt folks! I really got my tomatos started.
