I Am Ready For Spyro Reignited Trilogy

If you're like me, you've played these games, loved them and were upset when they weren't compatible with your PS3.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is coming out September 21st, and I am so ready for it.

I remember playing the original Spyro the Dragon on my PlayStation 2 with my mom and my brothers. My brother Chris and my mom played it more often than I did, but it was still our household family game.

I remember my mom used to laugh at one of the remakes where if he got hit he fell on his butt and shook his head before being able to get back up and fight again.

Based on the footage I've seen of the remastered game, I don't like how they've created the dragons. The first dragon saved in Reignited Trilogy looks like he's had one too many drinks, while in the original he looks like he's educated. (2:14)

Spyro looks more 3D than he did in the original game which doesn't mean much to me since Reignited Trilogy is being released on PS4 and XBOX ONE, so he has to have the good quality look. (Whole video)

Spyro's fire changed. This isn't a really big deal because the fire in both versions has the same effect, but his fire in Reignited Trilogy looks fuller and more real. (0:53 for remake; 1:00 for original)

It seems all the dragons are older versions of the originals probably in order to say that there was a long time in between the games. (4:45)

Watching game footage makes me nostalgic for the original games because those seemed like better times.

My brother had many memories with our mother while playing these games. Some of his favorites were when my mom was playing and entered the room with mechanical sharks. When she messed up and was eaten by the sharks, she would say, "ah so close."

My brother and our mom were very proud when they beat all the games and the moment they had beaten them all is burned into my brother's memory as his favorite memory while playing these games.

Another memory my brother holds dear is from Spyro the Dragon. In one of the levels, you had to catch a thief that stole a dragon egg. Our mom couldn't catch the little bugger, so she enlisted in Chris's help. He caught the thief for her, and they joked about her not being able to catch him. (Start video at 2:50)

My favorite moments were when Spyro and Hunter were skateboarding in Spyro: Year of the Dragon. I was terrible at tricks, but my brother excelled at hitting the buttons required to get the best tricks for the most points.

One of my favorite parts of the Year of the Dragon was when we were able to play as different characters. My favorites were Sparx and Sgt. Byrd. This video has both Sparx and Sgt. Byrd's adventures. (Start at 12:50 and continue through to the end)

WARNING: Mature language and a wild ride.

This is some of the gameplay.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
