How was your week, sweeties?

Mine was a off week where I let a bunch of opportunities pass me by. But I also joined a new game of D&D that Rick is DMing, so I guess it wasn’t all bad. Now for some rest and reflection so I can attack next week at full force!

    Awesome that you’re D&Ding! I hope you enjoy it. Wishing you the best for taking this week by storm. 🙂 Also, that art at the top – fantastic. I don’t even know the reference, but I really like the style!

      I’ve been in a couple of games before, but this is the first time I really feel invested in my character, which is making it a lot more fun for me. And the image is actually a Dragon Age reference. 🙂

      Hmm… maybe start with something small and fun to ease yourself back into it? I always feel a little spent after scrambling to finish Xmas projects so this year I used my leftovers from those projects to make myself some fun hats and I’ve managed to catch the knitting bug again.
