At some point, y'all are going to have to pry all my Halloween stuff out of my cold, dead fingers. I am loving it. This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but in large part because you get to see the darker side of creativity on Second Life. It's fascinating (and… Continue reading 222. How to… vanquish the depression monster.
Okay... I'm going to drop a truth-bomb or two in here, so #sorrynotsorry for the upcoming post, but it's that time of year ... just before our nice theoretically relaxing summer, when we're supposed to be doing our spring cleaning.
