Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Okay, so if you’ve followed my blog a while or if you just know me, you know I love Assassin’s Creed. I’ve basically played/watched all of them except for Rogue, which didn’t seem all that great to me.

I know people have been complaining ever since the Assassin’s Creed 3, but I’ve liked almost of all their games. I also thought the ending for Syndicate was pretty good. Who am I kidding? I loved all of Syndicate. It did have a few glitches here and there, but I loved it.

Most people love the games with Ezio (I mean, who doesn’t?), but a lot of people also liked the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. That was with Edward, and I honestly got really bored of that one until a certain character died like 2/3 into the game. I loved the ending of it, but not most of it.

I’ve been waiting for Syndicate for a while, and I know people are always going to be saying how they didn’t like it, but I loved it. It had a pretty good story line, and I thought the characters were hilarious and lovable. I also really liked how you had to play as both Evie and Jacob. I think one of my favorite parts was just that it was set in London. I love London. Enough said.

For me, the game was pretty awesome, so if you like the others give it a try. I know it’s been out for a bit now, but I don’t care. Oh, by the way, there isn’t a lot going on in the real world until the end.

I think that’s it for me. You can definitely expect another video game post once I finish the new Tomb Raider. Haven’t started it yet, but don’t worry.


Halo 5 Guardians

So… can I just cry for a minute? No? Okay.

I just finished watching the gameplay for Halo 5… IT WAS SO GOOD! The rest of this may contain spoilers, so you’ve been warned.

I wasn’t a huge fan of Halo 4, but I’ve liked most of the others. I never played Wars, but I played all the rest. Halo 4 was cool, because they brought in some new things, but Halo 5 was so amazing.

I’m actually dying. Plus, they sort of left it open-ended, so they better make another one. I haven’t done any research yet, but I will later.

Man, watching this game was so sentimental to me. I, for some reason, can not hate Cortana no matter what. I have always loved her and I still like her a bit even if she is crazy.

Cortana and Halo in general is such a big part of my life. I grew up watching my brother and cousins play it while I ate popcorn and pretended I was watching a movie. Wow, I’ve changed so little.

I really want to go and buy the first three Halo books now. Those are the ones that focus on the initial games. There’s the forerunner saga as well, but I’m not too crazy about that.

Ugh, right now I just want to replay every single Halo game. Halo has always been one of my favorites, and always will be. Okay, I think I’m done fangirling. I hope it didn’t shine too much through the words I typed. I’m trying to stay calm, but I had to blog about this. Okay, good night!

5 things to look forward to

Five things I’m looking forward to in the future:

  1. College! A new life with new people and reaching out into the big giant world. A brand new experience I can’t wait to jump into.
  2. Traveling! I don’t care if it’s across the country or across the globe. Being able to experience what’s out there has always been a major part of my bucket list. The thought of it always fills me with joy.
  3. Finish reading all the books I own. I actually made a list the other day, and I have a lot more to read than I expected, but it makes me somewhat giddy. I’m such a dork.
  4. Finally getting a dog. I have wanted a dog as long as I can remember. I love them so much. I’d probably get a rescue dog, but let’s be honest. There’s no way I’m only going to have one dog.
  5. Starting my career. I won’t have to rely on my mother all the time, and it’d be such a big step in life. Scary? Of course, but what isn’t nowadays? I’d be able to prove the people who doubted me that I did it.

“Be yourself”

“Be yourself.”

I’m sure we’ve all heard this, but what do you actually think of when you do?

I know that I tend to say this a lot to other people, but when people say it to me I question who I even am.

Am I a teenager? Am I a girl? Am I American? Am I Indian?

I’ve even heard someone say I was funny the other day. I don’t think of myself as funny. Weird? Definitely.

I don’t know how to define myself. Weird? Unique? Strange? How about all of the above?

I’ve had to describe myself a few times and the words above are definitely things I include, but what else does it mean to be me?

When I tell people to be themselves I want them to embrace who they are and not care about what other people think. Just have fun and do what makes you happy, you know? So tell me… why is so hard to listen to my own advice? I do that for everything. People say I can give awesome advice or inspirational talks, but I never follow what I say. Oh well.

How about this? Tomorrow we all try to just be ourselves. I mean, I do try, but sometimes it’s easier knowing that you’re not the only one working at it.

Does that even make sense? I really hope so.
