“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

I’m Hayley, o/ 

Standard blah stuff about me:
I’m from Nashville, Tennessee, USA and am a born and raised Tennessee Volunteers football fan! I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA with a BFA in Art with Graphic Design Emphasis. I now reside on the Gulf Coast in Alabama, USA where my family has lived since I was about 10 years old.

Fun stuff:
I enjoy video games on a daily basis to some degree whether it’s diving into SWTOR or sitting back with Monument Valley. Bioware is my favorite studio of all time and I greatly appreciate the characters and universes that they’ve shared with the world. My favorite games prior to being introduced to Bioware were part of the Ace Combat series. Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War is my personal favorite of the bunch.

I enjoy a good story with interesting characters that combines a healthy dose of combat (preferably tactical…give me something to figure out!). I see video games as ‘interactive books.’ Where some people enjoy reading and imagining the scenes and characters, I would prefer to BE the character and experience the scene. Quite frankly, if you find enjoyment in both books AND games, you’re damn lucky, IMO.

Miscellaneous stuff:

  • Onion powder is the only acceptable form of onion
  • The Mass Effect series is my favorite video game series of all time. Yes, including Andromeda (IT’S A GOOD GAME!)
  • One-woman Disney concerts on the way to work are a personal hobby of mine
  • I’ve never played a Zelda game in my life. Yes, I’m one of those people that thought Link was Zelda before learning otherwise
  • Cupacolypse‘ is a running joke based on my main SWTOR character, Blizzaire (Blizz)
  • Royal purple is my favorite color forever
  • My favorite word is ‘parapluie’ (French for ‘umbrella’)

Have a question or a thought? I may have an answer or an opinion. Maybe both at the same time!
