What the fuck am I doing?

My BLM is now 44, and if I remember correctly is getting pretty close to 45. The most amazing thing is how easy it is to do, and just how much fun. A note here though, it is very fun if you do it with a friend or two or three. I don't see how anyone would want to do this solo, and I don't see how people don't have fun doing this with a friend or two. I guess this just reflects my lack of understanding about a lot of the "young adults" that play this game. How can they do things that are so boring by themselves? What is the point? If you wanted to solo level a job there are many other games you could play and have much more fun. Hell, you could just play the other eleven Final Fantasty games off-line. This leads me to the question I have for a lot of people. This isn't just about soloers always, because sometimes it's nice to go and do something by yourself, and sometimes people just don't want to do what you are doing, but in the end the number of people that solo things and struggle with it is pretty large, so I have to ask...

Do you have any fucking friends?

I don't know if it's greed, lack of friends, inability to be a social creature, or just being a colossal douchebag, but some people seem unable to play well with others. I have a wide set of feelings for people like this ranging from pity to just wishing they would die in a fire. The point is I don't understand how people in this game can't maintain any friends long enough to have them help out with something you want to solo or want to level a job with you.

Anyway, back to the point at hand, I have been leveling BLM and it has been quite fun even though it was, for a long time, a job that I had been dreading leveling. I have to blame the fun mostly on Iz. He has been the one picking the camps, telling me what gear and food to use, and even what spells to cast and when. LOL I am not really on top of these things. Most of the things I do in the game are reactionary. Attack until TP, then WS. Shadows down, put them back up. Someone is losing HP, cure them. BLM is a little different, you need to decide if you can get a spell in, what do you do if you get a resist, how much MP do I have, what is the most efficient spell to cast. My next goal is to level my RDM to sub job level, which up until now is a personal joke, because I always thought I should level RDM but I never did because I just die all the time when I try to do it. It is so annoying. :/ But I will struggle through because I think we are coming up to levels where we are going to need it.

I never thought I would be in this place, leveling BLM. I never ever thought I would actually be liking it. :)

Oh, one last thing before I go for the day! I think I am ready to take up a new "On the Cheap" post, but I will do it based on your votes! Tell me what job you think I should do next of the jobs that I already have at 75. Leave your responses in the comment, with an explanation as to why that job deserves it. Bonus credit given to humorous reasoning!
