CrapPile is blog that I just recently started following. John has quite an opinion on a lot of things which is something I can appreciate. His recent post on the Star Wars prequels caught my eye. As someone who loves the prequels (and even named her dog after Padme Amidala), I enjoyed reading what John had to say.

I’m a huge fan of the blog The Time Ladies and its many writers. Thoughts on Regeneration: A Trans Perspective immediately drew me. Emma is a phenomenal writer and reading her post brought tears to my eyes; it’s a worthy read for anyone and everyone.

I am featuring two emotionally heavy posts this week. The first one is from AmbiGaming. Athena writes about the guilt behind playing video games despite being a fully functional adult, something I find myself relating to more and more lately as wedding planning takes a front seat along side my job, house hunting, and saving.

adult-alone-anxious-568027.jpg

The second post hits really close to home. Kim over at Later Levels tackles grieving with video games. I recently lost my grandfather in March. It still doesn’t feel real. I feel a pain in my heart whenever he comes to mind. Like the other day when my grandmother asked how “we” (Alec and I) were doing. I almost said: Good! How are y’all? It was enough to make me take a second to myself before quickly backspacing. I’m struggling with his loss, but I know I will heal eventually.

Let’s move on to something a little brighter. I recently stumbled across Camryn Dayton’s post on Manga Classics, and I got so excited! I haven’t read a good manga in awhile and what better way to do it than with visiting the classics! Look out for a review on these!
