It’s been such a lovely break. Between work, watching streams, writing, shopping – life, in general – I didn’t make enough time for myself to enjoy the little things I used to. Cook a homemade meal rather than eat fast food, watch anything, and enjoy playing a few games.
Writing has been sparse since I have finally gotten around to watching Persona 3: The Movie. Even though it was only part #1 of 3, it was so fantastic to watch it, evoking my own memories of the fun I had playing through Persona 3, then playing Persona 3: FES, which lead me to playing Persona 3 Portable. Much personas, indeed.
Persona 3 Portable was a surprise itself. I initially had no intentions of ever playing it, but it’s odd how playing as another gender makes the experience seem fresh. Yes, I am playing P3P as a female protagonist. After being Minato in the original and once again in P3: FES, it was only cosmic that I would be Minako this time around. A girl’s got to have perspective, and this perspective is definitely something else.
I’m far from finishing P3P, but all of this Persona stuff has led me to watching Persona 4: The Animation. Keeping true to the game, the anime is giving me the urge to power up my Playstation 3 and insert Persona 4 for another go. Persona 4 remains one of my most cherished and favorite games, with sleepless days spent immersed in its story and over 9 completions, I wouldn’t mind going for double digits!
Also, just as self-torture, I also picked up the Prinny PSP series. It reminds me so much of Ghost ‘n Goblins but less sadistic in terms of difficulty. Plus, I was a huge Disgaea fan when it first debuted on Playstation 2, though that love fell out later on as the series progressed and when there was less time to grind for levels.
On the flip side, the life outside of gaming and watching shows, I’m attempting to see how long I can go without fast food and cooking my own meals… again. Though these periods tend to be off an on, a respite from fast food is always a healthy way to go. I’m limited though pertaining to the skills and knowledge of a professional chef. Thankfully, I have recently discovered Serious Eats to help me out on my cooking endeavors.
A raised glass in hoping I don’t set my kitchen on fire, loose anymore sleep, and enjoy returning to the rhythms of life. Catch you guys on the blogger-side, dood!
