i had a major health scare shortly after starting my first playthrough of persona 3 and, oddly enough, i ended up resonating with the themes of that game a lot

I was pretty depressed for like, all of 2016 and I know this sounds stupid but I can directly tie feeling better to getting Ending E in nier automata. I was even talking about the ending to the game for weeks to my wife and I kind of pieced together why recently lol

(A bunch of other stuff happened in my life beginning of 2017 and then game happened to also come out then)

Lol in Kuwait alcohol is illegal (easy to get just incredibly expensive, like $100+ for bottles of poo poo) so I have tried all sorts of probably unsafe homemade stuff

I had a similar experience in Tehran where we were told repeatedly on the plane & at customs that alcohol is extremely illegal, but the moment you leave the terminal theres like a dozen guys trying to sell you bottles out of trunks & suitcases

I was and still am a complete loving retard with math like to the point that when I was a senior in high school, there were 13 year old kids in my class with me.

I had a tutor and studied for two weeks straight and still ended up with a 20 on my math regents. For reference, when I did a random ABACADAB all the way down on my Earth Science regents I got a 34.

Anyway math class was a really tough time in my life so I'd cut math class and I'd watch through a window at the deli across the street from the store my mom worked at and as soon as I'd see her go into work I'd go home and play Mario Kart

ain't no law says a skeleton can't play the blues

I had spinal fusion for scoliosis in high school and spent the better part of 2 months laying in my bed, in too much pain or too zonked out on pain killers to get up. Playing Super Mario Galaxy on Wii made the whole experience so much more bearable, and I have a soft spot for it to this day because of it.

Me too, when I decided to go to college in my late 20s when my job offered it for free

The math class in high school that I kept skipping (because sitting there every day was doing nothing) was called presequential 3 or something. I never even got to regular sequential 1. I actually failed the class in my senior year and I went up to the teacher telling him I had no plans to go to college and I was immediately going to train to be an electrician apprentice with the local union and he felt bad and gave me a 65 lol

When i decided to go to college in my mid to late 20s (even though I didn't need to, I just wanted to do it before I had kids), I had a 3.8 GPA at the end of my bachelor's degree

I had an overall 67 average in high school lmao

Edit: I went from a D- student to an A student between schools just because my parents weren't forcing me to go lol owned dad

when I was a senior in college I was depressed and became an alcoholic and I was doing ativan and I stopped going to class so I could play Fallout New Vegas all day and I had to go to summer school to graduate. I became obsessed with the Fallout world and I dreamed of living in the post-apocalyptic wasteland

I don't know if this game helped me through a rough time or caused a rough time
