Matt at Normal Happenings wrote a phenomenal post about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and the underlying theme of carrying on despite everything trying to tear you down or trip you up. With my grandfather’s sudden passing and a job that never feels secure, Matt’s post felt like a life boat, coming just in the nick of time. Give it a read. You’ll be glad you did.

Megan at The Dragon’s Tea Party graces us with another #rant. Man, do I love a good rant. She talks about her frustration at non-gamers and their perception of the gaming world and gamers. I’m sure it’s all things you’ve heard before and frustrations you’ve experienced. It’s good to see someone put it down in words.

Guest Post: Animal Crossing is My Solitude by Normal Happenings

– By Matt, Normal Happenings –

Hello there. I’m Matt from over on Normal Happenings. In the spirit of our blog partnership, Megan and I are doing a guest post exchange. Oftentimes, I discuss topics on my blog of a more practical or philosophical nature. So it’s rejuvenating to be able to just geek out about things here on a blog that’s all about geeking out.
