Bring Me To Life

I thought up of this game that I believe has the potential to be fun and interesting, even insightful.

It’s called, well you know what it’s called because of the title. No, it’s not called “well you know what it’s called because of the title”. It is called, “Bring Me To Life.”

The whole idea behind this is the deep understanding we think we have (whether we do or not) of characters we see, read, and hear (or hear of).
On a level of personal experience, I have often first thought of a fictional character before an actual existing person when given a description of someone.
This game is all about who (specifically fictional characters) you think of, given different characteristic(s).

I will put down a list of titles, such as “lawyer”. Using the title (or adjective) given, the player lists down the first fictional character that comes to mind.

Example: For lawyer, an answer could be “Saul Goodman” or “Harvey Specter”.

Please don’t be afraid to post comments. You can post as a guest and I promise you that I’m unable to see your email and so is everyone else who visits the page. You won’t receive spam either.

If you would like to post the game to your blog, let me know and I’ll tag you in my post.

In a few days, I’ll post my choices too. If you have any other interesting character recommendations, please let me know those as well.

Anyways, here’s the list. Please participate.

If people play, maybe I’ll do another list. But this is it for now. Please post where the characters are from alongside their names.

Endnote: The title of this game is taken from an Evanescence song. I recommend it. It’s awesome!


10 Random Things (about me)

Darci, blogger of Freedom of Excess tagged me in this fun little game that’s been popular among fellow HerCampus bloggers as of late.

So I have decided, that it is time for me to publish my post too!
This is actually about a week overdue.

10 Things:

1. I was born in New Jersey. I grew up mostly in Canada, but a majority of the people I meet think I’m from India at first glance, presumably because of my skin colour and turban.

2. I have never done drugs (you know, the “bad” or illegal ones), nor have I wanted to. I felt the need to mention that I was talking about “bad” drugs because I’m sure at least one reader would deem it necessary to ask, “So you’ve never taken medicine?”

3. I think of a song for an unusually large number of situations. Even with random things that people say, songs pop into my head.

4. I get very excited during holidays and want to dress up for and celebrate everything. It doesn’t matter whether I know the details about what the holiday celebrates, or if I believe in what I know.

5. I’m stealing this one a little bit from my tagger. I tend to react in a more emotionally connected way with fictional characters. I cry all the time when reading good books or watching good shows/movies. Occasionally when listening to good music as well.

Usually I get more angry in real life, and react with sad emotions with the fictional content.

6. I am obsessed with movies and TV shows. So when I was trying to come up with random facts about me, the majority of things I came up with was based on the topic. So I decided To dedicate about half my list to TV shows/movies since that’s what started this blog in the first place.

–>7. The fastest I believe I ever caught up to a TV series was this summer. I watched 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy in 5 days/6 nights. They are 13 episode seasons of almost an hour per episode.

–> 8. I can quote nearly the entire Pirates of the Caribbean. I used to be able to do it like a complete pro, but I’m a little rusty now. I haven’t seen it in a while, but having said that, it’s also probably the movie that I have seen over again the most times.

9. I can watch a good tv show for hours & hours. I used to love playing RPG video games, but now I start to feel stomach sick, get a headache, and my eyes throb when I play for more than about an hour.

10. I believe that I should end this post with something inspirational.
