The best literary father figure

Today in the United Kingdom, Sunday 18th June, is fathers day. In my opinion, having strong parental figures in your life is really important (I do believe, both motherly and fatherly roles can be filled by one parent,Β or even someone who cares dearly). I came up with the idea of writing a blog post based ...

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

I legitimately do not have time to write this post, but I cannot contain my excitement any longer, nor do I want to. So here it is, while I'm on my lunch break (and now, at home after a 13 hour day at work- because I didn't have time to finish earlier). This morning I ...
