It's that time of the year I get ridiculously anxious about my review and whether or not I can renew my contract! YAy.
I have had no problems in this school and no issues with my coteachers, they seem happy with me (aside from one KT who is an extrovert and really wants me to be the same way and I'm not. I pass on most socialisation. Not because I don't like them but because after a certain point in my day I just want to be alone because I'm exhausted by having to play the smiley happy foreigner). But just because they seem satisfied with me doesn't mean they are. I don't trust that they are going to come up with a bunch of problems they have with me that they have never communicated before.

On a somewhat related note I seem to be entering a depression. I am possibly in a near constant state of depression (I'm very high functioning, it makes absolutely no impact on my ability to work. I mostly just shut down socially) but it has crept up on me. I'm so tired and unmotivated. It's annoying.

I got you fam.

Last night I started playing Final Fantasy X for the first time. All was going well until...

The voice acting. I kind of hate it and wish there were an option to completely turn it off.  :lipsrsealed:

I'm a huge fan of Final Fantasy, but 10 is one of my least favourites (up there with 9). The only character I like is Auron, and the summon Anima is awesome, but I don't really like much else about it. Mostly because for me personally, I have to like the main character of a FF game; if I don't like the main character, I generally don't enjoy the game haha.

So far I've played 1, 4, 6, and 7. I got into all but the first very quickly. I'm totally with you on needing to like the main character-- so far I just find Tidus kinda annoying :/ Like I'm sure his heart is in the right place and whatever but his voice and personality so far... ehh. If he were a silent protagonist, I'd be much happier lol

Tidus is one of the worst characters ever written but that didn't stop me from buying 5 copies of the game and getting one signed by the dude who did the majority of ff music up until 10.
12 is decent too. Can't wait for the hd update since I had to leave my ps2 back in canada :C 15 is gunna blow tho. I can feel it's suckage wafting over here from Japan already.

I've heard that same criticism of one of my favorite games: Chrono Cross  :laugh:
I'm still interested enough to keep playing, I just keep shaking my head at Tidus  :lipsrsealed: The rest of the crew so far, I'm fine with.

You have an autograph from Nobuo Uematsu?!?!  :huh: :shocked: :huh: Super jelly!!! The only thing that could top that in my mind would be having an autographed soundtrack of Chrono Cross from Yasunori Mitsuda.  :cry: I think I would legit cry if I ever met him (though probably afterwards)

He did one of those Distant World concerts on a super small scale at a convention in Montreal? Ottawa? I forget where but he sis a signing before it so I had to be there :P But I actually also had an awkward elevator ride with him too cuz he was staying in the same hotel and got in with just me and his security dude. We gave each other awkward nods and stood in silence. I didn't know what to say to him and I was in a skimpy fem Jecht cosplay so it was awkward as hell XD

I hated the characters (except Auron), storyline, sphere grid, no world map!, and the combat system. I much prefer ATB. There are some enjoyable things in 10 - I loved the monster arena and the temples where you get the summons are neat - I especially liked how you need to open all the special chests to get Anima. I thought that was an interesting way to get a summon.

I haven't played much of 1 yet - whenever I fire it up to play, the moment I start I get busy with something and have to turn it off. 4, I have a save near the end, but haven't killed the last boss. I need to grind a bit more, but can't be bothered. :P
7 is my all-time favourite game, but 6 is pretty decent too.

I'd love to meet Nobuo Uematsu. I've never had a chance to go to one of the distant worlds concerts he often does. As they never seem to go close to NZ :(

One of these days you'll get there :0 until then just listen to The Black Mages. I prefer that to the distant worlds stuff. Who doesn't want screeching guitar solos in ff music!?

personally i liked the sphere grid hehe. some of the characters were pretty forgettable but i liked Rikku and Yuna. i much prefer the CTB battle system over the ATB, since i find the CTB battles to be a lot more strategic. you can really think about and plan your moves.

Final Fantasy 15 looks amazing though, not sure why so many people are hating on it. i'm not convinced about the battle system, would have preferred one of the more traditional ones but apparently it's very similar to Kingdom Hearts and people say the battle system in that is great so gonna have to wait and play it myself before i judge.

Hah! I was on the moon in 4 and probably at or near the final boss but then my SNES died so I haven't gone back since  :cry: Since then I've gotten the port for PS1 and the remake for 3DS but haven't returned to it yet. I really enjoyed 4 and 6 and 7 are great but I'm reserving judgement for a favorite until I've at least played most FFs through 10.  ^^

Also, strawberry jelly is the best jelly.

I think ATB still allows the level of strategy as CTB, but you have to think on your feet more, which is the reason I like it more; also, it makes the flow of battle seem a tad more real.

I agree, FF15 looks visually amazing! I can't wait to give it a try.
I love kingdom hearts as well, even if I do hate the AI'd controlled party at times. :P

I'm skeptical because I don't like the direction Square Enix has been going in lately. 13 was a huge jump back in gameplay compared to 12 which I LOVED gameplay-wise, the plot blew tho. I just don't want another slightly interactive movie with a billion unwanted sequels. Don't get me wrong, I'm still gunna buy every FF branded game just to keep my collection complete and I'll play it through so I can judge it fairly but I have super low expectations.

I'm more of a raspberry fan myself, but my bf's friend brought back a passionfruit basil jelly from Vietnam for me and it's strangely good.

I just straight up don't understand that mindset.

I am so thankful I never really had to deal with that nonsense. At my first school, the other contract English KT was in charge and basically just wanted me to help out, and my second school didn't make me turn in any plans of anything.
