Personal Blog

My Twitter account mainly exists to keep everyone informed about the massive amount of time I’m spending with Animal Crossing and other vital information about my personal life, so this blog is the main platform I use to actually write things down.

I write about stuff like personal developmentwork related updates and things I’ve enjoyed in the past month. I also like to talk about game design related topics, to make me feel like I actually know what I am doing.

I got mad at myself for not playing Outer Worlds earlier, played a bunch of other games and tried to get my sleep pattern sorted.
