After a less than lackluster day, there was a package waiting for me at home. Whenever I buy stuff off eBay or someone send me something I seem to instantly forget about it until it arrives in my mail box.
It was a copy of EQ5!
Someone---who wishes to remain anonymous---caught my post about whether getting EQ was worth the high cost. She had EQ5 and was just going to donate it to a library since she never really used it, but after seeing I was interested in getting it decided to give it to me if I wanted. Didn't even want a penny for it! That was really generous of her!
Currently trying to get it to download onto my computer as we speak :)
