Finally done with the extra overtime for work so I have more time to write! So I decided to start with what I’ve been doing while I was focusing on work.

Reading

I just finished a graphic novel called Teen Titans: Raven which I really enjoyed! It was a YA adaption of Raven which allowed me to learn more about her character. I mainly know her from the Cartoon Network version of Teen Titans.

Shows and Films

I am currently watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and I plan on reading the comics. I love seeing a darker, more mature version of Sabrina as I grew up with the live action kids show.

Games

I’ve gotten a few games. The first surprise would be GTA games. I did not think I would like them as you’re mainly playing a villain. But, I miss ordinary life from being quarantine. So when Vice City and San Andreas went on sale on PlayStation, I decided to give them a go. Vice City is a hard game for me for some reason, but I am enjoying Miami in the 80’s. San Andreas is really funny. I also got Grand Theft Auto: V. It’s about the most normal I can get because I can get a hair cut, go driving, go ride some amusement rides, do some running.

After giving these games a chance, I surprisingly like them. I like the humor and the critique of modern society. I like that they point out ironies or make fun of things like reality TV or clothing ads directed towards teens.

I also have Persona 5: Royal which is really fun! There’s surprisingly a lot of changes and I love them! My favorite is that the character icons in the text have more emotions on them. I also love the new dungeon mechanics.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has also been fun to play! It’s so relaxing and it’s like a nice island vacation.

Finally I got the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider. It was free on Steam because Square Enix decided to release it for free for a couple days. I decided why not and I love playing as Laura! I love the climbing, I love her character! It’s just a really fun, but intense game.

What have you all been doing during this quarantine? Have you found any new games to play?

Questions and Answers

Yes or No?

Yes? I have no idea what I am answering yes to, but sure!

Do you experience any aches or pains in your body?

Sometimes I get shoulder or neck aches from working at a desk or just tension from anxiety. But, that’s about it.

If you could create a new type of sport, what would it be or similar to?

I’m not much into sports, but I do like figure skating. I wonder if there was a way to maybe make a figure skating obstacle course and the skaters get graded based on how well they did and any tricks they did during the course.

What is a game that is generally received as bad but is your guilty pleasure?

I’m not sure if I have one that has been generally received as bad, but I do have one that is obscure that I love! Ghost Master. My mom bought it for my brother when he was a kid, and then I got it and I love that game so much! I was really happy when Steam reunited me with it! Basically it looks like The Sims and you scare people using ghosts!

Do you prefer writing with a pencil, pen, or keyboard?

I prefer a keyboard, but that’s because I am left handed and have terrible handwriting. Sometimes I don’t even know what I wrote! So, it’s better for me to type everything.

When was the last time something made you laugh so hard?

For Persona 5: Royal I had to name my phantom’s thieves group. I had named them last time when I played Persona 5, but decided to let my friend name them. He said “Hmmm”, but then did not reply back. It was getting late and I had to get up for work so that’s now the name for my Phantom Thieve’s. It’s appropriate as the main character does say “hmmm” a lot!

Do you play an instrument? If so what is it? If not, do you have an interest in learning how to play one?

I play piano and I am currently learning guitar! I really love rock and metal music so I decided to start electric guitar about 2 years ago.
