Hey, I’m Holly. I’m the sixth in a family of nine children. I attribute my love of video games to my older siblings, with whom I played NES, SNES, and N64. I continued the legacy, playing Game Cube and Wii with my younger siblings in years to come. Family and Nintendo go hand-in-hand for me.
The first Nintendo system I had all to myself was a Game Boy Color with that pretty, see-through purple casing. I must have been 10 or 11 when I found that in my Christmas stocking…it was tragically stolen within a few months. Fortunately, I would go on to receive a Game Boy Advance SP for graduating the sixth grade (it’s a big deal, ya know!).
My favorite Nintendo memories revolve around playing Ocarina of Time at a young age while all the neighborhood boys sat and watched. Those boys watched me beat that game so many times; we often tried to mix things up by reading the dialogue with crazy voices or acting as though we didn’t have a clue how to beat it.
I am currently living and schooling in a small Utah town. Aside from playing Nintendo, I love to write, play music on the piano, swim, and spend time with my family (although much of our time together is spent playing Nintendo). Feel free to check out my personal blog, if you’re inclined to do so.
