The last month of full freedom before exams start. When this goes up, I have just finished 10 hours of my 15 hour exam and my body is crushed. Anyways, lets get into it.
Writing in review
This month was fun month in terms of writing, with Kill la Kill and Space being some of the subject themes, along with my first mobile game review.

Awesome things I saw/did/read
-Gigaboots and KZXcellent did a really funny stream of Castlevania:Lords of Shadow. And I'll just direct you to the supercut because it's the game is really bad.
-LightningEllen went on a Rant! And she ranted about why Canadian health care is complete crap!
-Cece(now going by the name PrincessUsagiXO) is pushing for Twitch Partner status! Go follow and sub to her!
-Eve made a new song "This world to You", and it's a really good song. Go check it out, the video is also amazing!
-Speaking of, I haven't watched Kamen Rider Zi-O in a while(not that show is bad, school just got hard), but I really like the theme for Rider Time: Kamen Rider Ryuki's theme, Alive a Life Neo. It's also sung by Rica Matsumoto, or Japanese Ash from Pokemon.
Games that I have been playing
So despite school ramping up, I manage to play a good chunk of games. I'm still on episode 4 of Life is Strange, and sorry to spoil this little tidbit, but it's sad to see that Chloe in her current state, and to see that either way she suffers a horrible fate. I can really commend the writer for making this story really moving and relatable with the dialog.
I also played Hyperdimention Neptunia: Re:Birth 1 for a bit! I don't think I will touch for a while because my exams are on the horizon, but I love it so far, but somehow, I'M STILL NOT FINISHED WITH CHAPTER 1.
I've also been playing Final Fantasy XIII! Shocker? No? Didn't think so. After Exams I do want to start a new play-through, just to experience the game again, but for I'm going for 100% Steam Achievements.
Been to busy and too broke to buy any new merch lately.
General and Final Thoughts
April was a crazy month, lots of bad things happened to me, and I honestly scared because... I think my parents won't take a gap year if I fail my exams. I know clearing is a thing, but we have no idea how it works(I'm the first going to uni in England in my family), and it's just a scary thing for me in general. Plus I don't really think anyone in my family really truly believes in me, and that's... heart-breaking.
May will probably only consist of a Question of The Month post(+one other thing), because exams are about to start and I want that to be my main focus.
Either way, thanks for reading, and I will see you guys next time.
