True love heals and conquers hate and misery, which the world seems to have a lot of these days sadly. When I’m feeling at my worst, trying to help the people I care about and focusing on the positive things around me helps keep my darkness at bay. Yep. I have a lot of things going on right now that make me really freaking sad, but I have a lot of really good things going on now too.
The glass is not half full nor half empty… I shattered it and focused on living in the now. It’s just a damn glass with liquid in it, and is in no way an accurate representation of my overall optimism levels.
Anywho, the super lovely Later Levels nominated me for this lovely Super Happy Love Blog Award created by the super personable Pinkie’s Paradise. Thank you so much! More of these love and positivity things are definitely needed on the internet and I’m honored for the opportunity to partake.

- Tag 6 lovely bloggers to spread the lovely good vibes (will do)
1 – Tell about a person you love
I love my Orc Dragonknight in Elder Scrolls Online. She’s so freaking badass! She roars a lot, likes smashing things, punches bad guys first and asks questions later, and she drinks heavily. She’s like the big sister this only child always wanted. I’m looking forward to spending tons of time with her in this endless MMO land.
2 – Write something about a fandom or franchise you love.
I love the entire Final Fantasy video game franchise. Haters gonna hate on most of them (honestly, people can be such jerks online) but the series offers such unique emotional experiences across all the mainline games.
Also, please understand each game is going to click with different people for different reasons. No need to jump on hate bandwagons because it’s “cool” to hate certain entries and proclaim the developer has lost their way since they don’t cater to your personal tastes anymore. Ahem. Be respectful and celebrate the love that the entire series deserves.
3 – Tell us something about a character that you love.
I love Bowser from the Super Mario series. Call him a heartless villain all you want, but deep down I know he’s a good Koopa who cares a lot about his son. I admire his brute force, strong sarcasm, and unrelenting drive to keep trying no matter how badly he fails at life.
4 – Tell us something about a piece of music that you love.
I shamelessly love all the Resident Evil movies (the movies inspired me to play the games… yes, I’m weird). Milla Jovovich’s Alice character was a huge inspiration to high school era me and motivated me to join the Canadian Forces Army Reserves for a few years, eh. The soundtracks for all of these mindless-violence-fest movies are absolutely awesome.
On particular track, The End of the World by Tomandandy from Resident Evil: Retribution, always sends shivers down my spine and triggers tears in my eyes every time I hear it. It’s depressing, uplifting, and epic all rolled into one badass song. That’s the emotional power of music right there!
5 – Show us why you love a piece of media so much!
Right now I’m loving Untitled Goose Game. I’m trying to get the Platinum trophy for it and that goal is wickedly fun to pursue. Who knew being a jerk goose tormenting townsfolk could be so damn entertaining?
I also enjoy crossovers! When I came across this fanart piece of a goose stealing adorable Link’s hat, my cranky heart melted.
6 – Write something about yourself that you love!
Ha! Thanks to having completed a year of therapy with an awesome therapist, my automatic negative thoughts have lost their power over me. I would still find it far easier to list off everything that’s wrong with me rather than say something I love about me, but that’s not the prompt. I’m going to call in some support to find that self-love thing, so I’ll go with something one of my best friends recently wrote to me in a snail mail letter (Awww!).
I quote: “You’re the greatest friend to have and an excellent listener. You are hard-headed and soft-hearted. You are strong.”
If that’s indeed true, then I definitely love that about me!
Here are 6 random lovely friends I’m grateful to know in the blogging community, and who weren’t tagged by the great Later Levels. If anyone else wants to share in the Super Happy Love, I love you too so consider yourself tagged!
