Henlo people who still care about this site. Here's a life update
So I went to college but it's like 30 miles from my house. It's pretty nice too, my dorm is split up into suites and there are four rooms and two bathrooms per suite. So instead of sharing amenities with everyone else in the dorm I only have to share with 4 people.
I'm in a triple, I didn't think I'd be able to handle it but my roommates are really nice. One of them is quieter and more withdrawn than me (think about that) and my other roommate and I have become fast friends. I didn't think that would happen but we have the exact same attitude about a lot of things and she's a geek too so yay
We actually met bc we were the only two people without iPhones so we couldn't join the group chat on iMessage
She said she was bringing her Gamecube and Wii and she was stoked when I said I was bringing my PS2 and Dreamcast. There's a common living area in the suite and someone brought a TV and DVD player. However no one uses them except for the occasional movie night so most of the time I use it
My professors haven't assigned very much homework either so my I basically have the TV to myself. My roommate and her friend (who is also amazing) played Mario Party 4 once on the GC and they got trolled so hard by the AI. I'm almost glad they didn't have a third controller.
Lately I've been playing Sonic Heroes on the PS2 and I managed to play as Team Dark all the way to the penultimate level. I would've never been able to do this 10 years ago so I'm very proud of myself.
Fun fact, the game I'm playing now is the same one I played when I was a kid. I have never finished the game. I am still dedicated.
Anyway. Say what you want about Shadow the Hedgehog but he was my first platonic emo crush. I don't remember if my mom finished Sonic Adventure 2 when she had her first Dreamcast but I think I saw him on the back cover. I actually don't know how it started, I remember Sonic Heroes but I barely remember SA2. The main reason I was sure that she played it at all was that I had a few dreams when I was little that were definitely about SA2.
My problem is that now whenever I look at cute Shadow fanart I feel like a 12-year old weeb on acid. It doesn't help that DA contains an endless slew of content that never stops. Sometimes it's difficult to avoid the shipping, furry and/or "sexy" art and when I do I wonder why I decided to do this in the first place .-.
I don't like anything about his personality or origin story revamp post-Heroes but I still like him in general There is plenty of general Shadow fanart and SA2 stuff as well so yeah
Also my mom has been semi-bedridden for almost a year bc of a spinal fluid leak :c
Good news is she just went through her second surgery and she feels a lot better. The recovery has been slow but now my dad and the doctor thinks she's ok to go outside.
Tomorrow we're going to breakfast, hopefully IHOP bc one just opened a few months ago and they have so many good things!
That's what's been going on. Until next time friends...
