Lightning Will Not Leave Me

This article is brought to you by the fifteenth Blaugust 2020 Promptapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Chestnut over at Game Girl Confessions: Tell us about a person(s) or thing(s) that has greatly influenced you.

This is the perfect opportunity to re-post an article I wrote in a previous blogging life. The TL;DR is that the fictional video game character Lightning Farron (and the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy) has greatly influenced who I am today. The following article describes why I love the games as best as it can be explained. It’s honestly more of a weird emotional attachment that doesn’t make much sense to anyone else, probably.

Also, I feel like this is a prime opportunity to show off my tattoo of Lightning Farron! The fact I have this character permanently etched on my arm should say A LOT about how much she means to me.

Enjoy my long deleted past self’s words about the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy!

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Family

Oh, crap… It’s Mother’s Day here in Canada. I should probably contact my mom in some form after this, eh? I’m not even sure what year it is anymore so I’m sure she’ll understand. Plus I can pull the corona card to avoid a rushed visit. Ha! But yeah, family.

Family is a bit of a, um, “complex concept” for me. I’ll spare the drama details, but I only have my parents and my two cats to call family. Just because you’re related to people by blood doesn’t mean you have to refer to them as family. Sometimes you just gotta let go of the toxic people who don’t really want you in their lives. Besides, true friends who become like family are infinitely more awesome than forced blood ties. I’m grateful to have quite a few of those cool true friends, both online and offline. Thank you ❤

The awesome Heather over at Just Geeking By started a series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about the family thing. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s familia realted questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!
