    Gaming Angel Spotlight: Dawn

    When I was younger and people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always answered with the word, “Happy.” Looking around me, I think I am doing well in that arena. I live in a beautiful home in an incredible city with my hubby and our super cute puppy dog. This year we started teaching Lindy Hop classes, and built some gardens in our side yard and have grown all sorts of fun stuff – even peashooters. I am a pretty big Harry Potter fan, as well as many things to do with magic. I have always liked writing, mostly fiction, but haven’t had that much time for writing (or reading) for fun in a while. At the moment, I am a little more than a week away from beginning the third term of nursing school and am very excited about the clinical opportunities

    GenCon Adventures: Day 1

Days 1, 2, 3, 4)  Whatever type of gaming you’re interested in, there’s something somewhere at this convention for you.  And it’s not just gaming either.  There’s anime, there’s dancing, a whole host of “Spousal Activities” for those that might not be all about the gaming, and while the dealer’s room is open from 10am to 6pm, there’s activities happening at the convention center and surrounding hotels well into the following mornings.  Instead of breaking everything down into separate posts, I thought I’d do a quick recap of all the games I had a chance to see/play each day during the Con. Thursday morning was an early one, as I had to get in to get my badge.  And I saw the long lines wending around the
