In Defense of Order: 1886

It isn't that bad of a game.

Back in 2015, a video game called Order: 1886 was released for the Playstation 4. It followed a man named Agent Galahad who worked with a Knighted Order to rid Alternate History London of supernatural creatures such as Werewolves and Vampires, as well as quell an ever present rebellion from the masses. The game saw host to different technological weapons as well as appearances from various folklore such as Galahad, the Knights Templar and an appearance from Nikola Tesla. It wasn't received very well.

The biggest complaint most people had for the game was that "It was too much like a movie." In honesty, the game was lacking in actual content. The game was split into several "chapters" and some chapters were action packed while some were exposition packed. In fact I can remember two different Chapters that from start to finish were just cutscenes. My defense for all this? At least I can remember it.

My defense of Order: 1886 comes from the deluge of open world games of recent. So many games that I have played recently such as Metal Gear Solid V and Watch_Dogs where the emphasis was on the open world gameplay and multitude of side missions. Now I loved Metal Gear Solid V to death, but I can't tell you the plot of it. I can tell you about certain set piece moments of the game, but I can't discern the plot for the most part. Order: 1886 I can remember the plot and can actually still see some scenes playing out in my head. I grow tired of many games recently forfeiting story for open world gameplay or mutliplayer only experience like Metal Gear Solid V or Overwatch. While I love those two games, the lack of a story leaves me wanting for more and Order: 1886 delivers.

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.

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.

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.
