Home but not gone!!

(Yes, I changed the posts name to match the image, sue me) Hey everyone. Yes, no new posts since last Friday. The truth is I haven’t had time. I’m working on a few personal things, and I have a big trip on the horizon. I’m also going through a massive backlog of games, Anime, movies…
