Young people are awesome

I met a young author today. 20 years old and she already has two books published. I bought one of her books just to be polite, then I actually read it. It’s actually pretty well written. The pacing is a little off and I’m not a fan of the genre but it’s a good read. […]

NieR: Automata is fucking awesome.

So growing up I was an avid gamer, heck till around 3 or 4 years ago I was still pretty hard core. I stopped playing because life, my job and school conspired to screw me out of video games. So I haven’t really been gaming that much. I still play every now and then, but […]

One plus One

In high school was at best a disinterested mathematics student, I could do it and I passed but my heart really wasn’t in it.
