Twitch Stream

I've decided to recommit to my Twitch Stream and to start creating live content once again. I still need to finish Pokemon Red. Once I do that, then I can move on to more variety casing, alternating between current and retro games. My streaming schedule for the next couple of weeks is posted online.

Beat 100 Games

So far, I have beaten five games: "Ninja Gaiden," "Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon," "Starfox," "F-Zero," and "Super Mario Bros." I define "beaten" as reaching the credits or the ending screen of the game. I set this goal originally to see how long it would take me to beat 100 games and what kinds of games would end up on the list. At this point, I'm now looking at how long it will take me to beat 95 games.

Miscellaneous

I've set aside other goals on an Airtable chart outlining gaming goals that don't fall in line with the Twitch Stream directly or beating a game. I will tackle these goals off stream from time to time.

 

Doing Human Rights Work for Almost a More than a Decade

 

Reilly got her start as an activist at Saint Louis University, where she joined SLU's Amnesty International chapter in 2006. During her time at SLU, she served as the chapter's Tabling Coordinator as well as Co-Coordinator for two years. SLU's chapter would host an annual jamnesty/slamnesty event, featuring musicians and slam poets to bring awareness to different human rights issues.

Afterward, Reilly joined the local St. Louis chapter of Amnesty International, Group #105. The group is active in the St. Louis area hosting events and tabling at concerts and festivals to encourage people to take action. Most recently, chapter members wrote a resolution asking Amnesty International to take an official position on boycotts, divestments and pressuring third-party actors as an effective tactic toward stopping human rights violations. She became the Local Group Coordinator of the chapter in 2016.

 

 
Reilly started a blog for the Amnesty International Group #105 in September 2012. The goal was to create a dynamic online presence for the group that make it easier for potential members to find the group. Another goal was to position the chapter and Amnesty as a human rights thought leader and activism resource for St. Louis and the rest of the country.

While at the Peace Economy Project, Reilly became involved with local efforts to track and tackle police surveillance in St. Louis. The involvement started with Drone Free STL, a coalition founded with PEP (prior to Reilly's tenure) to stop police drones. With police drones on the backburner for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the effort has shifted toward privacy issues and body cameras.

Every year, the Peace Economy Project collects signatures for it's Statement of Peace, a letter delivered to Congress to ask its members to reduce military spending and fund human needs instead. While at PEP, Reilly set a goal to collect 250 signatures from around the country. She surpassed that goal, collecting more than 265 signatures. The signatures represented more than 20 states and 20 separate districts in the House of Representatives. Reps. Lacy Clay (D-MO) and Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) all sent responses to their constituents.
