Tired of “What’s your major?” “Where are you from?” “What year of school are you?” “What do you do for a living?”

*Batteries not included. I don’t own anything. Also these have never actually been attempted.
It rained for two days, but it stopped raining just in time for the final battle. My Artmstreet boots held up incredibly well after a week straight of use and served me well during the fights. Didn’t slip once! I didn’t wear my helmet for the photos, but definitely wore it in battle. I also took three weapons and a shield into battle. I wish I had gotten to use them all.
