Y’all I have fallen hard for the Webtoon app. Ever since discovering Lore Olympus, I have been reading tons and tons of comics created for the platform. There’s so many talented creators that I just knew I had to add Webtoons to the Saturday Suggestions! I want to kick this off with one of my favorite Webtoons right now: Lookism.
The month of April marks seven incredible years of geeky blogging. Seven years is a long time to keep writing about my love of geeky things which is why my writing and my blog evolved over these past seven years. I fully expect for my writing and my blog to continue to evolve and be an extension of myself.
To celebrate such a huge personal milestone, I wanted to share my personal favorite blog posts with all of you. Some of them make me cringe a bit, but it just shows growth! There were also long period of time between blog posts in the very beginning as I didn’t have a schedule worked out that made sense for my lifestyle at the time so some years have more posts than others. I enjoyed taking this tip down memory lane and I hope you will, too. Don’t be afraid to comment on some of these old posts to let me know your thoughts.

When I think about some of my favorite anime couples, there’s not many that come to mind that seem healthy or realistic. Usually we have the ‘love is complicated’ couples that fall head over heels for each other quickly but deal with a lot of miscommunication and drama. We have the ‘will they, won’t they?’ couples that sometimes take an entire season to confess that they like each other which has some viewers (me) ripping their hair out in frustration. We have the couples that present one side as heavily devoted while the other is unaware or aloof. Sometimes we have a combination of different types, but mostly I hardly ever see a healthy romance play out, because it just doesn’t make for entertaining episodes to keep audiences coming back.
On YouTube, I played Rule of Rose for most of this month. Rule of Rose is one of the rarest horror games of all time. Watch my Let’s Play if you’re one of the unlucky ones who couldn’t manage to get your hands on a copy. All videos are linked below!
I also got the chance to try my hand at a speed build (with voice over!) for The Sims 4. Join me as we build a lovely, Joanna Gaines inspired apartment.

Disney+ has been out for a minute now, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about some of the content I’ve been enjoying so far. I still think Disney+ can use some improvements overall as I expected a product that mimicked Hulu and Netflix. I will say though that I am glad we have a great selection of old and new Disney movies and shows so that I can catch up or just relish in the nostalgia of my childhood if I want to. Overall, it’s a great subscription service if you love Disney. Let’s get to what I’ve been watching on Disney+.
