It’s a confusing time for us all, but I wanted to put a post out there to encourage you to be kind, be patient and to make the most of our time in the face of uncertainty. (With game recommendations, of course.)

Favourites and Other Questions – #GTKM

It’s been a while since I posted a personal one… I’m doing some soul-searching right now and figured it would do me some good!
