Wish List

Links I Loved


  • Playing: On my second run of Tears of the Kingdom and this game is SO BIG. There’s just so many things to do that I’m still just running around doing stuff randomly. Probably should have set a proper challenge.
  • Reading: In a bit of a reading slump so I’m re-reading Lord of the Rings.
  • Watching: Portrait Artist of the Year, Interview with the Vampire, Futurama, Cyclocross, all those cheesy Christmas movies on Channel 5 while doing other stuff.
  • Making: Still nothing! I need to dig in my project box, or start some Christmas things.
