Heel-Turn: Kingdom Hearts

The Kingdom Hearts series has so many heel-turns that it was hard to pick one to focus on for this blog. The series is long and a little confusing with a lot of twists and turns that provide ample opportunity for characters to abruptly...

We can't interrupt calls at work if we are mid-call when our shift is over, so I got out 11:20PM, 20 min later than usual and missed my bus. But due to the magic of Daylight Saving Time ending, I got home at 11:07, a lot earlier than usual! It' a miracle!
