Hallo TAY! Today is the beginning of Otakon, which I used to go to all the time, but I’m missing it again this year. There’s a lot of reasons for that, but in that mean time, I’ve started watching speed running of games. There’s rules for this though.

Rule #1! I will only watch speed runs of games I’ve played and completed. (Like Super Mario 64.) OR

Rule #2! I will only watch speed runs of games I’ve started, but know I won’t complete. (Like Earthbound.) OR

Rule #3! I will only watch speed runs of games I know I’ll never play. (Like Portal.)

Basically I just kept making up rules, so I could watch what I wanted. :)

So do you watch speed runs? Any rules you have for them? Going to Otakon? (I’m so jealous if you are!) What else is going on? Cuz we can talk about anything!
