I heard some talk about the game Into the Breach by the Waypoint podcast crew that really made me think about the emotional weight of giant mecha anime that often gets overlooked. Movies like Pacific Rim and Godzilla usually touch on the larger-than-life terror of fighting something bigger than yourself but 80’s anime usually dug deeper into the human cost of living titans destroying your life. Austin Walker specifically talked about Robotech and inspired me to check the series out. Then I saw a tweet about an Emotional Mecha RPG jam on itch. So I made a thing.

Alright, test time–do you use Wattpad? Is that a thing that people use? I want to start putting more of myself out there for people to see and share. I know I’m not that great of a writer (in like world-wide standings) but I also know that in today’s world I won’t get anywhere without regular material.

Christmas break is traditionally a time of the year where I make big promises to not deliver on. I always say I’m gonna do big things but usually just take a break. This year wasn’t really any different but then I started the year off sick.

A Good Place

I’ve been a bundle of nerves for the last few weeks. I took my comprehensive examination for my graduate program a few weeks ago. It was a weekend long essay test. I had heard horror stories about it but couldn’t really devote time to thinking about that. The weekend came and I made nearly every mistake possible as a test taker. Turned it in and prayed. Then waited for my results. I saw a friend on Facebook post that they had passed and it took a full minute to remember we are in the same program. So I rushed out to my school email…


Should I frame the email?
