Dating all the way back to 2014 (as far as I can remember that is), I’d been confronted by close-blood relatives about the subject of marriage in a cycle of protracted conversations, which I was partially accountable for dragging myself into; the most recent of them involved a one on one session between my 2nd brother and I in 2016.
Having been overwhelmed by these protracted conversations about marriage, I metaphorically learned what it was like to be Street Fighter series character, Sagat having their chest scarred by a Metsu Shoryuken. I was infuriated but at the same time, garnered strength from that anger by talking relatively little about marriage in the presence of close-blood relatives.
On my WordPress blog, I’ll start to fill the void of Street Fighter game reviews; granted, this will take extra time due to my schedule of errands.
While Tevin (long-time friend from elementary school) and I fought each other in a 2-player match of Capcom vs. SNK 2 at my house, he initiated a conversation to me about Street Fighter character, Cammy (who was part of his team). I don’t have a transcript of the conversation but here’s a summary of it:
Tevin: I would hit on her [Cammy].
Tevin: If both you [Akif] and Cammy were inside the same universe, would you [Akif] hit on her [Cammy]?
Me [Akif]: I wouldn’t hit on Cammy.
Me [Akif]: She’s not Asian!
