Things I hate:
HerInteractive has been a huge part of my life since I picked up my first Nancy Drew Game about fifteen years ago. I used to be so excited not just to play the games but to check the website every day. I did this way back when the website was still green and updated once a week or less. I have felt no need to check the website recently. There has been nothing calling me to the site that has been so much a part of my life. I heard about Odyssey, it does not look bad, I might even get it since I am trying to learn more about science and encourage young minds to explore science. Maybe if I had been encouraged I would not have the resentment I have for math today. Overall though, I am just sort of devastated by the apathy I have. I want to feel the familiar joy and excitement leading up to a new game, checking every website possible for news or pictures of the game. I’m pretty sure it has been a year since the profiles were released and certainly two years since the last game was released. When I started college people got to know me by asking about the large and colourful countdown I had to the upcoming game. My love for Nancy Drew is a part of my identity. I feel like this is slipping away from me the longer I go without news. I guess I just feel a little lost in my relationship with HER and with the games.
