One with My Monster Friends

I went in knowing that I was going to do another one pacifist styled playthrough. This time, I did the true pacifist route. I was not expecting to be an emotional hit as much as I was. By doing the true pacifist route, you learn a whole lot more about the background than you would by doing it regularly. I also made it a point to constantly call my buddy Papyrus in every single room that I went to. He had some very interesting stories to tell along the way that made the journey much more enjoyable. As much as I didn’t want to do the true genocide route, I feel like I need to. Based on some of the information that I discovered my last time around, I think it’ll need to in order to figure out the rest. I’m not going to say exactly, but I need to play the true genocide route. I feel that deep inside, I really need to play it, but at the same time, I really don’t want to. Considering the fact is took me a while to do the other genocide route, I would not look for a review on how that went in the near future, but I will make sure to not delete the game file on my computer so that I get the full experience.

Cursed Life

Another of one of the webcomics that I am reading is Fluffy Boyfriend by Mihi. I am writing this as of Episode 43, right as the author went on hiatus for a bit. And as sweet and fluffy that the title is thus far, there has been no romance in sight as of yet. In this comic, we follow Anna, a girl who has been cursed with not being able to touch anyone, and her half-human cat, Niko. Not only is Anna somehow able to touch Niko, but he introduces her to a whole new world of half animal-half human people. There are a lot of mysterious aspects of the story because Anna doesn’t remember her entire past or getting cursed, but Niko also seems not to be the most reliable story-teller. Where the story left off before the haitus, I felt like we were finally going to get some answers, and I can’t wait to get some answers. There are also some world-building that was taking place, but I still have some many questions. Either way, I’m really liking the way this story is taking place.

Witch Like No Other

Recently, I have finished the first season of this amazing webcomic known as Aerial Magic by walkingnorth. This comic follows Wisteria as she starts a new apprenticeship in the big city. One of the things that I’m loving about this comic is the diversity of all of the characters. It is really not said enough, but representation matters. It’s honestly amazing seeing all the different characters from their different background and looking like their own individual people. It’s really inspiring having a protagonist who looks like me and has some of the same struggles as my own, even if Wisteria’s are of the magical variety. I can’t wait for this webcomic to come back and see what Wisteria gets herself into.

A World Without Birds

As someone who wants to help save the environment, it’s actually quite surprising, that this is my first time reading the book Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. As the book that started the entire Environmental Revolution for the United States. It actually was not at all what I was expecting. It might have been because I’m not really interested in the impact that humans are doing that affect humans, it did not affect me as much as I was hoping. In my eyes, there are enough people focusing on human health, while I just want to save the animals. They are too cute not to want to save. There were moments where I just didn’t care enough about what she was saying. While we were discussing the book in class, I would mention and think about all the good things she was doing, but at the moment, I just wanted to hear about what was going on with the animals. If that makes me a bad person, I’m not ashamed. I love me some animals.

Reno Twins

In the spirit of my love of home renovation shows, I have gone through a binge of watching Property Brothers. This show has been one of my favorites since I really got into watching home and garden type programming. I’m the type of viewer that dissects every single decision that the new homeowners are making. Not only are they not understanding how much work goes into things, but the cost of things. They come in, ask for some design feature to be added and then are shocked that is is not in their budget. In my opinion, a simple Google search could have solved that. I know that some of it is for the drama of television, but my simpleton mind can’t understand it. I’m also convinced that these homeowners are able to afford what they can afford it because of the Canadian funny-money. It would take me years to complete what these families end up getting in a matter of months. It also, at the end of the day, helps me decide that things that I want in a house, no matter how far away that may be. If I make the same stupid decisions that I bag on the homeowners on the show do, you have permission to hit me over the head.

Holidays in January (2019 Calendar)

Welcome everybody to the new year. I took a break for the last month so so preparing content for you guys for this year. Last year I did my best to get you two pieces a week, and this year I going to step it up a bit to three. Disclaimer as always: I am a student at university. My school work comes first. That being said, it is the first day of the month, which means that we have an entire month on holidays to talk about. I know I didn’t do one for December, but all of my professors got together and we’re talking about how to make me miserable. I swear. Off of that topic, January is National Soup and Oatmeal Month, so make sure to stock up on hot meals. It is also National Hobby month, so it’s the perfect time to either discover a new hobby or finally invest the time into something that you have been pushing off.
