Thanks to the awesome iplayedthegame for this lovely award. Seriously, stop wasting time here, and go check out his interesting thoughts on many gaming topics!
Honestly, I have hit a bit of a “blogging block” with zero game progress to report, so this gives me an excuse to ramble about 7 personal facts. Brace yourselves I’m in writer mode:
FACT #1: My favourite non gaming pass time is writing.
Come hell or high water, I’m going to finish a novel I’ve been working on for over a year now. It may never be good enough for other eyes, but it is a lengthy tale that has been screaming to get out of my soul. I’ve been in “writer mode” for over a week and that’s why I haven’t touched a controller since my last blog.
A talented author who frequents this part of the internet, The Shameful Narcissist, has been a huge inspiration to me. If you like Final Fantasy VII and paranormal romance novels, stop reading this and go read her epic Northern Lights fan fiction. If you view Sephiroth as an evil tool of destruction, prepare to have your mind enlightened to the once General’s true character.
FACT #2: My second favourite video game character is Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
It should be blatantly obvious who my favourite character is. My second favourite is Ezio from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. He evolved from an annoying playboy into a wise Master Assassin over the course of the three games I played with him in (teehee). He is also easy on this female gamer’s eyes, and has taught me many angry words in Italian.
FACT #3: I’m an INFJ.
As the rarest of the MBTI personality types, we are silent paradoxes. We long to save the world, but feel like we don’t belong in it. We get caught up in the feelings of others, but forget to look after ourselves. We have the thought patterns of an introvert, but wear our hearts on our sleeves like extroverts. We need to be alone, but crave close relationships with the special people we rarely find. We hate small talk and gossip, but can talk for hours about the nature of the universe. We love learning about the reality around us, but are often trapped in our own inner existence. We instinctively understand other people, but no one else will ever understand us. If we choose to open up to you, know you’ve gained a loyal ally who will always be there for you, no matter what happens. If you betray our trust or if our charged emotions overwhelm us, hell hath no fury like the INFJ’s Door Slam.
FACT #4: I played World of Warcraft for over 8 years.
I’ve been clean for over a year and a half now. I even heard there’s this new expansion thing people have been raving about, and still don’t want to go back, I swear *twitches uncontrollably*
FACT #5: My most treasured piece of swag is a Homer Simpson sand dollar.
Of the many plastic statues, Amiibo, and other trinkets I’ve accumulated over the years, if a disaster tore through my apartment and I could only save one thing, it would be this. I’ve been a huge fan of the Simpsons TV show since I can remember. I blame the show for turning me into the sarcastic smartass I am today. This unique item was handmade by an old friend of mine’s significant other. I’ve fallen out of contact with them for many confusing reasons, that I don’t even remember anymore (#INFJDoorSlam), but this will always remind me to stop being miserable and just simply enjoy life.
FACT #6: I don’t have any tattoos but I want one, or maybe three. Okay, 4. Yeah, 5.
I want my first tattoo to be a PSN trophy icon saying “Trophy unlocked: First tattoo.” My second will be a Xbox Live logo saying “Achievement unlocked: Second tattoo”. My third to incorporate the L’Cie brand and Lightning from FFXIII. My fourth will be relating to my seceret novel. The fifth will be Samus, Link, and Mario with a Nintendo logo. That being said, I doubt I’ll ever be brave enough to even get one.
FACT #7: I have two cats, nature’s cute furry killing machines.
