What Your Favorite 'Super Smash Bros. Melee' Character says About You

Before you read this article, you need to know that I do not understand "Super Smash Bros." I only ever push random buttons while praying to the game gods that I don’t actually fling myself off of the edge of the stage with no chance of recovery. My only existing knowledge about these characters is that they're each from different games, have different abilities in different categories and some of them look much cooler than other ones. Here's what some of the characters I'm familiar with say about someone who plays them frequently, as told by someone who doesn't know anything about the game itself.

1. Marth

I don’t even know what game this character is from, but I’m gonna wager a guess that if you play him, you probably listened to a lot of Blink-182 in high school. You also have a one-syllable name, like Greg or Blarth.

2. Pikachu

This is my favorite character to play, mostly because he has what I’ve heard described as anti-arial attacks — to me, that means he can make lightning come down from the sky, which looks neat. I have to assume that if you also like to play Pikachu, you also watch a lot of storm chasers and that, like me, you get easily frustrated when you accidentally hurl yourself at an opponent only to end up throwing yourself off of the stage.

3. Ice climbers

This character has far too many limbs, so I have to assume that you have either A) very long legs or B) very short arms. You find refuge in the excess appendages in this character combo. You may also be an only child trying to find friendly companionship like the kind you would have gotten from a brother or sister growing up.

4. Peach

You’re the only girl playing with a bunch of dudes. That, or you’re an expert on Peach’s abilities in this game. You always choose her when you play Mario Kart, and you think that high pitched, irritating noises are “cute” and definitely not annoying.

5. Fox

You're generally uninspired, both in terms of gameplay and of everyday life. If you were asked to give a presentation at work, you would make a Powerpoint and consider adding a couple of spinning transitions, but after you added them in you were self-conscious about someone noticing and thinking they were tacky, so you delete them to save yourself any embarrassment.

6. Jigglypuff

You have really soft hands, unless you’re Hungrybox, and your normally touchable fingertips are calloused from playing this character constantly.

7. Captain Falcon

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but Captain Falcon's head is far smaller than his biceps, because, I can only guess, his brain power was siphoned into his muscles to make his Falcon punch more powerful. So it’s only logical that if you play this character frequently, you also have strong arms from practicing the Falcon punch in real life. You spend days and nights furiously winding your arm around in circles, and trained yourself to flick open a lighter just as your fist flies forward to greet the body pillow that you’ve been using as an opponent. You can become Captain Falcon. You will become Captain Falcon. You must become Captain Falcon.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
