World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Beta

I was fortunate enough to have been invited to the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Alpha. Shortly before the Alpha ended, I got an email with the lovely image that I put at the top of this blog.  My best guess is that everyone who participated in the Alpha was automatically included in the Beta.

In this blog, I have screenshots, Twitch videos, and commentary about my thoughts and experiences in the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Beta.  I’ve no idea how long the Beta will last, so I will try and make the most of it.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Alpha

I was fortunate enough to get into the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Alpha. After thinking about it, I decided to roll a Void Elf and make her a Warlock. The Void Elf is one of the Allied Races.

The best thing about Alphas is the amusing “bugs” that players can find.  The goal is to find and report all the bugs so they don’t make it into the final version of the game.

Champion – Completed! (Season 13)

I’ve played every Season of Diablo III, but this is the first time I’ve completed Champion.  I was super excited when I finally finished the last objective.  It took so many attempts!

There were times when I wanted to give up, because I got really frustrated.  I’m glad that I made myself keep trying.

Hearthstone: Year of the Raven Celebration

Hearthstone had a Year of the Raven Celebration shortly before the Year of the Mammoth ended. The upcoming new expansion is called The Witchwood.

For a limited time (March 26, 2018 – April 9 – 2018) players received a free Card Pack every time they completed a Daily Quest in Hearthstone. This motivated me to work on Daily Quests.

Jen’s Lore Corner: Adria – Episode 001

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast, with new episodes to follow.

In Episode 001, I talk about the lore of Adria.  She’s one of the oldest characters in the Diablo “universe”.

Barnes & Noble Fired Their Workers – Episode 035

In this episode, I read a piece of writing that I wrote on April 6, 2018. The piece was inspired by something that was in the news a few months ago.  Barnes & Noble had suddenly fired many of their employees.  There was a time when I worked for Barnes & Noble, and I had things to say about this news.

I read “Barnes & Noble Fired its Workers” in episode 035 of Words of Jen.

Barnes & Noble Fired Their Workers

I wrote this piece on April 6, 2018, in response to something that was in the news a few months before.  I read “Barnes & Noble Fired Their Workers” on episode 35 of Words of Jen.

In February of 2018, Barnes & Noble fired a lot of their long-term employees with no warning. People who had been loyal workers for years and years were suddenly out of a job (and in some cases, without a severance package). Some were told they could apply for their job again – but would receive the starting rate of pay.

As a person who worked for Barnes & Noble for a total of five, frantic, frustrating holiday seasons, I have a lot to say about this situation. To be clear, I was not among the people who were fired. I quit Barnes & Noble long before this happened.
