    I really hope that BotW's sequel brings back the creepy vibes that almost all previous Zelda games flirted with. Like, I find OoT to be so genuinely unsettling at times. I have to psych myself up a bit to get the Sun's Song or to enter the Shadow Temple. And you can just fuck right off if you think I'm going to play the Forest Temple when it's dark outside. TP and MM may be darker, but they just can't hold a candle to the feelings I get from OoT. It's not childhood nostalgia talking either. TP was my first Zelda game back on the Game cube when I was 13 or 14, and I didn't really play OoT until the 3DS remake.
    I'm not asking for a dark Zelda game again (although that would be nice), but the mildly creepy  elements that go back as far as the the NES original are missing from SS and BotW and that's a bit of a shame.

    I've been doing a fuckton of baking lately. Cakes, cinnamomn rolls, éclairs and profiteroles, bread, pastry... all of it thoroughly enjoyable. Except macarons. Fuck macarons. Whoever decided it was worth that much effort to get little domes of meringue with almonds in deserves a good slap.

    Every time I play Breath of the Wild, I'm taken back to just how amazing my first playthrough of the game was. It's still one of the most magical and immersive gaming experiences of my entire life. I was totally lost to Hyrule for weeks. And I don't know if this is controversial or not, but I genuinely think that the fact that the game explains so few of its mechanics and encourages you to just do things your own way is a huge boon. A lot of things just don't get any kind of tutorial. I feel super sorry for anyone who had the game spoiled for them by watching gameplay videos and guides first.

    Celebrate, but don't get complacent. Democrats need to stay energized if we want a shot at taking control of the senate and undoing the damage Trump and McConnel have wrought. If you live in Georgia, make sure you vote in January, and everybody needs to donate to and/or volunteer for Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock's campaigns if they can.

    I've been watching Fox News these past few days to see their spin on the election. Fox is utterly awful, but I'm impressed by their relatively good form following the election. They're skirting around the facts a bit and not calling Trump out of his bare-faced lies as much as they should, but it seems like they and a lot of ardent Republicans are getting tired of his shit.
    It also make me glad and further appreciate  that in the UK we have impartially rules regarding news reporting on TV. There's always some bias here and there, but maintaining a perfect level of impartiality is difficult. We're lucky to have it as we do.

    This is an old and tired topic, plus I'm no Pokemon expert, but do fans really want every single mon from every single game into each new title despite that the Pokedex number keeps growing? I definitely don't want to be one of the devs. I prefer having new Pokemon in a new game, that's the appeal, a mix of new and old stuff, not everything. I know people are passionate and want to "catch them all" but don't take the motto too seriously. It's been 24 years and the series has grown. I know Sword and Shield is disappointing in quite a few areas, but the quality of the game has nothing to do with the Pokedex. You need to separate the 2 things.

    What a crazy month it's been. I applied for a job I didn't think I'd get and wasn't very interested in, but two weeks I had later learned about just how amazing the job would be and somehow managed to successfully stumble my way through the interview process. Now two weeks after getting the job offer, I've moved to Oxford for said job despite never having actually visited the city before. My family were completely unaware that I was planning to find a new job (and even less so that I was planning to move away) until I got the job.
    This is just the abridged version. It's kind of overwhelming to go through so much change so quickly. I start my job on Monday.
