Hey brothers and sisters in arms. Tzoltze Ek from Belgium here with a long story in a nutshell that I really feel like sharing with you guys and girls
I feel the urge to give you some background information as to why I came back to ESO, and please NO, it’s not to get favors, mellow, or playing the victim, it’s the raw truth for me atm.
I broke up with my GF after a few years, my parents got divorced and I moved a total of 4 times in 2020. It started when my parents got divorced and my mother got the apartment I was renting from my father. So I moved out and stayed in the attic of my twin sister (love her, and my entire close relatives family) then I moved to my GF (we always wanted to wait a bit since she had a child from someone else..) and after the breakup moved to a couch of a good friend. Then I moved to my best friends Ralph newly bought house and he proposed to rent the top floor for a very fair price
Also he has 20+ years of IT experience on the job and is an python/automatization expert. Fits perfectly with the IT studies I started.
I just got treated for thyroid cancer, a particularly nasty version. Instead of the 4 years of going back every 3 months for checkup if it has spread I have 10 years to go. This also gave me financial problems. I also FINALLY got diagnosed ADHD and ADD (only last week) and getting medication for it. Its starting to work and helping a lot. The doctor and psychologist couldn't believe that no one had noticed it in all these years (my friends have been telling me I had it from the moment I met them, but I didn’t want more pills …), but it does shine a huge light on my past and the why, what and how questions I constantly got.
I’m pretty smart, sorry for saying this about myself, but I quit Philosophy in its 3rd and final year. I then studied archeology and quit at the end of my first year after which I worked and studied at Loods 13 with a famous Belgian artist Walter De Buck RIP 2017 in arts (metal and stone crafting) and quitted in my last year. I also quit in my 2nd year of Remedial education and now I’m doubting of stopping IT sciences in my first year so I can focus on getting everything in my mind and soul in the right order. The psychologist and the medication is a godsend and I’m confident I’ll succeed in whatever I’ll do next after first firmly grounding myself. Did I mention my border collie died in the meantime (Lynx; adopted where he was called Rex (Lynx in Dutch means left and Rex means right and is a cop dogs name :=p) I had to put him to sleep age 9, his body weight being almost 1/3rd consisting of tumors)
I just took a 365 days ESO+ membership and will buy the new expansion tomorrow. That’s what I’m looking for in ESO, a band of brothers and sisters whom I can fight with on a daily basis and really progress together. I have plenty of time, playing at least 8 hours (usually a lot more) each day. Or at least a sort off fixed group that can really rely on each other and progress in game.I have a magicka DPS group PvE dungeon/trials Nightblade called Ek Tzoltze at 480CP (I think?) and just rolled a Necromancer level 3
called Tzoltze Ek which I might make a healer or a tank also for PvE dungeon/trials etc. Another project will be making a PvP character but that’s for after this. I can easily respect my NB to the stamina NB he was and go nuts in PvP with him and all his excellent gear I still have in bank. I am a beta player (have the beta monkey pet and the loyalty tiger mount) and took a 3 year break 3 years ago from ESO.
Sorry for the long read but that was in a nutshell to be honest
Feel free to PM me for a talk, a guild invite , doing pledges, runs or dancing together in Mournhold
Ek Tzoltze – Count on me.
