I don't get any sense of achievement from completing super duper hard modes and the like (or from farming achievements).
I archive all my saves and used to complete games 100%, I still archive my games, but don't 100% everything now... I just go for the playthrough that brings the most achievements. It's frustrating playing on hardest, but elating when succeeding.

Although, in retrospect, I often think "I could have moved on to another title much more quickly if I hadn't bothered with this nerd cred thing".

I remember games I played, but the farther it is in time --- the less I recall the details, usually the game boiling down to a nostalgic list of memorable story/gameplay events that happens to ignore what wasn't so great about it.

Some games I still remember front to back, and only play in ways I enjoy. An example is Silent Hill, I got 10 stars in a couple game, but I can never speedrun that game, I have to enjoy it to the fullest, most of the time.

Obviously in my Silent Hill run on my channel I cut it down a bit since my videos are more informative than entertaining.

So Die Hard is basically 'arrogant white dudes from the FBI incompetence' the movie. And pretty funny all things considered.

Alan Rickman is a beautiful man.

Got a new job with the same agency. Significant increase in income, which is good because I am having difficulty making house payments without dipping into my savings.

Except my employer is looking to possibly mandate 22 unpaid "holidays" starting in April and ending in September (one day per week), effectively creating a 20% pay cut for all employees. But we won't know until March if this will actually happen. There's also a chance my employer will close down completely and all nonessential employees will be on mandatory unpaid vacation for an extended period of time of who knows how long.

Also there's the possibility that even if both of these things happen, people will be laid off. ksjdhfkshfdksdfhksdfh

Bonus points if you can guess who my employer is.

I really can't decide what I want to do with my last summer before college. My mom just suggested trying to get a job.

I've been discussing summer ballet intensives with some friends at ballet.

I want to make costumes.

I want to sleep and be lazy but still productive if at all possible.

Too many choices! Too little time.....

....was doing a bit of research on my family's history....

Why in the hell did no one tell me about any of this?

...apparently, I just need to live in a different era and a different country.

I can't even handle this information.

Well, that's a rough English translation.

But re: your other post-- yes, a job is a good idea! Having the extra money in college will be nice, since you'll have flexibility to do things (and buy fabric, hahahaha).

Mykaios-- How did I JUST NOW notice you're going to Katsu? Eeee yay! I definitely want to try and find you!
