Lists Full of Favorites

It’s 2017. That means the seemingly neverending global shitshow that was 2016 has finally come to an end. Granted, there’s a lot that 2016 did to mess up 2017 (and beyond) for a lot of people, but hopefully we can work together as a society to ensure that people who deserve rights (read: everyone) receives them accordingly.

Whenever I take a day off from work, I leave a paper letter on the door of my office. While I’m not a big fan of printing things out[1], it’s a tradition that started almost three years ago, so I keep it alive. While the letters started out as completely serious, work-related instructions, they’ve since morphed into a hybrid of that and a place where I just ramble because I can.

More often than not, those letters also includes lists of various things. Usually, these lists are totally random, but sometimes they’re lists of my favorite things of some type or another. There likely won’t be a ton of context in these lists. After all, I’m giving you multiple of these lists at once while on my office door there’s one at a time. If there’s enough caring in the comments/via Twitter, I’ll go back and add context later.

  1. That’s such an awesome idea. Maybe I should do that when I go on vacation in February haha.

    I’ve only heard of two of the songs. Never played any of the games, and I agree with some of the Pokemon. My list would have Flareon instead of Vaporeon, and Rapidash would be on there somewhere.

    1. I hated using fire Pokemon in the original generation of the game (this has since changed). It keeps most fire Pokemon from the first gen from the top of this list, despite liking later fire Pokemon (Houndoom and Chandelure come to mind).

      In looking at my video games list, it becomes really clear that I almost exclusively play strategy games. Only three of the games are non-strategy/RPGs (two if you consider Catherine more strategy than puzzle, which would be fine).
