nintendoh: (Over your shoulder)
Feeling like I want to cut back on internet use lately. Feel like I waste a lot of my mornings just bumbling around the web doing nothing. Like, I'll get my laptop to browse/check things while eating breakfast/drinking coffee at 8:30 or so and then suddenly it will be 11:30 and my morning will be gone. I need to give myself better things to do in the AM and should be more vigilant about making sure lazy internet time is limited.

Going with this line of thought, I decided to get off my ass and sell my Wii and old 3DS this morning! I was putting it off because I knew I had to set up the Wii one more time to revert it to factory settings (I'd soft modded it to play imports and emulators, so I needed to erase the evidence) and just couldn't be bothered, but today I was like NOPE JUST DO IT. Took them both to my local shop afterwards and bam! Gone! Unfortunately Wiis aren't worth much anymore, but I did get a pretty fair price for the 3DS. Now I have another thing crossed off my summer to do list and little extra money in pocket. Hurrah!

In other random news, a friend tagged me in a "Top 6 Album" meme thing on tumblr and I have no idea how to handle it. 6 is a weird number and my music tastes have changed so much over the years and so have my favorites. How do I even answer? 6 influential albums over the course of my life? My 6 favorite right now? I have no idea how to choose and honestly I'm kind of in a phase of life where I don't really think about music in that way. Don't really want to rank stuff, so maybe I should just skip it. But the person who tagged me is a person I really liked from the the LJ days and we've sort of been falling out of contact since she went tumblr-only. I really appreciate that she thought of me so I kind of want to do it just so she knows that. ~Dilemma~

Also, I guess same-sex marriage will be an option in the new Fire Emblem game. Pretty cool, but when you read the article it seems it is actually pretty limited. There are only two gay characters you can partner with. One guy, one girl, and they are in different versions of the game. Better than nothing, and it is nice that Nintendo is acknowledging the need for this, I just worry that the characters will be the kind of yuri/BL tropes/stereotypes that are not actually representational of and made for queer people themselves, but rather made to cater to the fantasies of straight young people (side note, but this is why I usually don't touch yaoi). Anyway, gonna hope for the best and take the gay marriage routes anyway. Hopefully the gay characters will prove popular and create more demand for such options.
