On where my political views came from

  • Aug. 20th, 2017 at 9:19 PM
I originally wrote the contents of this post back in June. It became relevant again today when I heard my mother go on a political rant about transgender people in the military. Sigh.

Every now and then, I think about how and why I developed my political views. For example, marriage equality kicked off my interest in politics.

A few hundred words on how I developed my current political views. )

I don’t participate in activism much these days, but I make sure to vote in every election I can and read as much news as I can stomach. If nothing else, I like to be informed before and after I go to vote. This seems especially important given the current political climate.

There’s a truism that says people start out liberal and become increasingly conservative as they age. My experience is the complete opposite.

Crisis Core - thoughts etc

I literally just finished Crisis Core! It's been sitting in my backlog since about 2009, so you know, eight years after I bought it isn't too bad, right?

What with the LOVELESS quotes and the misuse of the word honour, it's little wonder Sephiroth decided to hang with his alien mother and destroy humanity. )

In terms of backlog statistics:
  • 103 games in my backlog
  • 15 games left before I hit 50% backlog
  • It will apparently take me 175 days and 13 hours to complete my backlog according to How Long to Beat.
I haven't worked out what's next, so if anyone wants to choose my next games for me, let me know!

Persona 3 - thoughts etc

  • Aug. 13th, 2017 at 9:06 AM
Yesterday I finished Persona 3: Portable! I played as the female MC because a) I felt like it; b) I played as the male MC when the game came out; and c) I wanted to see if I can bang all the dudes. Turns out, everyone is Minako's bro except for the robot and the ladykiller exchange student. Fitting, really!

Making friends so that you can make even more powerful fragments of your subconscious! )

Next up: the post about Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star, finishing off Crisis Core, and then deciding what to play next. I'm so close to getting under 100 games in my backlog!
