Professional blogger/hubber by day...asleep by night...

I am someone who enjoys being heard, making people laugh and engaging in conversations/debates about topics I'm passionate about. This is a collection of short stories, random thoughts and other forms of various insanities.

Besides my obvious love for video games, I don't really have a specific niche...I write about pretty much everything and anything, there is no method to my madness.

I have a really off-the-wall sense of humor, which is not for everyone and I'm sure will one day get me thrown into an insane asylum, but for right now I'm enjoying it for what it's worth.

Feel free to check out what I have to offer and let me know what you think...I always appreciate feedback...even if it is ripping me a new one.

Thanks for reading everyone! I hope you have a great day...much e-love to you all.
