Comics, Graphic Novels & More Comics!

So I thought I would do a little blog post about a hobby I have – reading Harley Quinn graphic novels & comics! I originally got into them by playing Arkham Asylum on Xbox over Summer last year and then I really started to like the character Harley Quinn. I started to get into reading more of the graphic novels about her which resolved around her life besides the Joker, her participation in the suicide squad and also her friendship with other criminals in Gotham City most notably Poison Ivy which was a great insight.

“Harley Quinn,pleased to meetcha!” – Harley Quinn

So a little info about the protagonist! Harley Quinn was the Jokers psychiatrist in Arkham Asylum until she fell in love with him and ended up becoming his side kick and love interest, one of the things that made her graphic novels so interesting to me was the relationship between the Joker and Harley throughout the novels, because it showed how there relationship was so crazily messed up. Another thing that lured me to her graphic novels was her personality because it’s so eccentric, psychotic & she’s fueled completely by her desire to be loved and in turn it turns her into a rather dangerous villain – so overall a great combination for excellent graphic novels.

Thanks for reading about a little hobby of mine! 🙂

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 8 A GAME

A heads up this is a pretty lengthy post! 🙂

So day 8 was yesterday and I am posting two hours late if you’re following my blog in Britain or if you’re following my blog in America and other countries then I am still on time with my posting! (hehe) but nevertheless sorry for not posting sooner, I was tweaking my blog all night and such.

So day 8 is game! now I LOVE games, emphasis on the love because it’s true I have loved games ever since I was little and right now I am talking about board games and video games. However in this post I will be talking about video games because I have decided my photo for day 8 will be a collection of the video games I currently own! 🙂

There are tons of reasons I have always loved gaming! To start I think it’s a mixture of growing up playing video games with my brother & dad for one which I will always treasure and I think it has also probably influenced my taste in games as well to be quite boyish, not that it’s a bad thing! 🙂

I think what also played a part in my love for gaming and games was being a introvert during the beginning of secondary school (Years 7,8 &9). I didn’t really enjoy going out much because I hadn’t made that many close friends that I felt comfortable enough to go out with and ultimately I just preferred to be indoors and I would end up gaming with friends online because it’s where I felt comfortable & happy. However when I had made a large close group of friends further along in secondary school (Years 10,11,12,13) I did go out now and then but I still spent a large proportion of my time gaming because there was something about video games that made them addicting and for me I love overall enjoyment, the impatience and game rage and the excitement of each game I’d put into my Playstation – but that’s just me 🙂

Anyway there are a hundred reasons I can trifle through as to why I love gaming and games but back to the picture! The picture is of some of me and my partner’s (he loves to game as well – bonus!) Xbox games, we have more but these are the few I decided to take a photo of because they’re mostly my favourites! 🙂

Anyway thank you for reading! 🙂
