We are far past the lie of “it’s just Twitter” but you can keep believing that and you might get your ass handed to you 140 characters at a time.
Social Media has been the start and end of lots of folks we know, and those who are only survived by a story but don’t get caught up, please remember that unless you know someone, you really don’t KNOW them.
Many friendships and relationships now start on twitter but don’t assume friendship and ride or die – especially if you’ve been the only one initiating engagement.
Don’t get comfortable with people you don’t know. Don’t assume yourself to be a friend or confidant. Don’t assume emotion is reciprocated.
This spring we have lots to be thankful for, namely Shingeki no Kyojin | Attack on Titan Season 2 and Boku No Hero Academia | My Hero Academy Season 2 – both of which premiered this past Saturday, on April 1st.
I’m not going to lie, ya girl was shook when she saw April 1st as the release date for Attack on Titan specifically. I’ve been waiting for more episodes since February, 2014.
Gangsta is one of the best anime series I’ve ever watched*.
With that said, let’s get into the review.
Gangsta is categorized as an dramatic, action anime and follows the story of the “Handymen” who live in Ergastulum; who service both the local police authority and the community (including the underworld). The Handymen worked with and outside of the law, a combination of enforcer and Judge Dredd.
And who are the Handymen?
Nicolas Brown aka Nic: Nicolas is an exceptional fighter with a bit of a secret; but who doesn’t have a secret in Ergastulum? Along with his abilities, Nic is also deaf and communicates using sign language – he can speak but exercises that ability very rarely.
Worwick Arcangelo met Nic when the later was hired to serve as his personal bodyguard. Young Worwick and Nicholas formed an unbreakable brotherhood as Worwick tried to bring Nic into the safety of his world and Nic tried to save Worwick from the realities of his.
Welcome to the first video in the Overwatch Basics Series. In our first video, we tackle the very basics – Who are your healers? Who are your support characters? What are their abilities? I also introduce some philosophy surrounding the responsibility of the healer/support player and how it impacts your team.
I will be writing a full article series to accompany these videos for ThumbstickMafia as well. (New Content will be arriving in April)
If you’ve been following me for a while either on Twitter or WordPress – you probably know that I suffer from Celiac’s Disease. It’s been well over 5 years that I’ve been diagnosed and I’m happy to say that while the autoimmune disease itself comes with a plethora of struggle and tears – it’s mostly managed and eased with diet.
I will continue to share the Brands and items I come across in my hunt for better tasting and healthy gluten free options – the positive part of GF becoming a dietary fad is that those who actually suffer from Celiacs now have a larger variety of options available in store and in restaurants that allow you a bit more freedom when moving around and living life in general.
One Point I want to make is that lot of GF hide behind lot of sugar and sweeteners – it’s important to still read the label (every single time) and check your favorite brands for updates to formulas and recipes of their products.
When I first came up for the idea for Thumbstick Mafia, I wasn’t quite sure it was going to work – all I knew was that there was something missing from my gaming experience and after 10+ years of gaming with a men majority friend groups, I decided I needed to know what it would be like to actually have a sisterhood of black and minority women who gamed together.
It was immediately rewarding. I wasn’t falling out of love with gaming like I thought – I needed women to relate to.
