I realised the one thing that makes Equestria Girls better than its parent franchise when it comes to reformation, is that Equestria Girls puts a big emphasis on personal responsibility. You have to own what you've done and honestly want to do better in future.

It was a huge part of Sunset's arc, and she won't have problems forgiving someone if they show genuine remorse. Cinch is so terrible because she's an older woman who takes absolutely no personal responsibility for using and manipulating the children in her care. 

Personal responsibility and the desire to change for the better is often glossed over in FiM. Starlight feeling honest remorse wasn't crucial to her being given a second chance, and that was one of the major issues with it. 

The running theme of Equestria Girls is actively trying to do better, and getting their with the help of friends. FiM doesn't have that kind of depth to it, which is why redemption doesn't work as well in FiM.

 I think I can honestly say now that Natsume's Book of Friends has made it onto the list of my top 5 favourite anime.

My dad's side of the family is visiting from out of state. They usually only come up about once a year - if that - so all week, on my days off, I've been staying out until 11pm to visit with family. The lack of downtime and naps has me feeling tired constantly, so I haven't been doing much fandom stuff lately other than reading. I haven't written anything, or beta'd anything, because I just cannot brain when I get home lol. But everyone is leaving Saturday/Sunday, so after that things will be settling into their normal routine. I took yesterday - Thursday - off because my one uncle was only going to be here Thursday and Friday, and I work both those days. It's going to make money ridiculously tight at the end of the month, but it was worth it. I haven't seen him in three years.

Other than reading, I've been listening to podcasts. I just finished Limetown and LOVED it. Fascinating and at times creepy, it pulled me in until all I could think about was listening to the next episode. I have a huge list of podcasts I want to listen to, some of them quite long, so I have plenty to choose from. I think if I ever do get caught up on my podcasts, I'm going to listen to more podfics. My life could always use more John & Rodney~

My birthday is coming up - the 23rd. I'm going to be 28. It's super weird to think that I'm approaching 30 - I still feel like I'm 23, and I have to actually do the math in my head before I'm like, "Oh yeah." Where the hell is this year going?
