Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! For folks in the US, this week was Thanksgiving Week aka Turkey Day!! I hope everyone spent an amazing holiday with family and friends… and of course good food!! For those of you not celebrating the holiday, I hope you all are taking advantage of these amazing sales!!
This year, my BF and I decided to celebrate Turkey Day together rather than going home for holidays… So, it was up to me to cook the entire feast, with help from my BF of course!

Alright, I didn’t know where to put this at first, but since everything is still hush hush, I decided to put it here… So, a little while ago I joined forces with a few WordPress Bloggers to work on a very special project! In light of recent current events, a few otaku bloggers decided to band together and spread some positivity! Together we hope to spread love an acceptance in order to create a sense of unity and to create a space for people to feel comfortable being who they are!!
“We are a group of otaku bloggers who promotes acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and disability. We emphasize the importance of respect, kindness, and tolerance to every human being.”
You guys, I am so excited to be a part of this group and I can’t wait to share more with you when the group is officially revealed on December 12th!! So be on the look out for more special announcements in the coming weeks!! 😀
I really want to hear from you guys, let me know what you think of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. What do you think about this change? Do you guys like my posts?

I’m working on a Pokemon related post, so expect that sometime this week! Hmmm let’s see, I also have a game review I’ve been sitting on for awhile too, so depending on how I feel that post should be out this week too! IDK what this week’s Fangirl Moment post will be about, but I’ll figure it out by Friday! 😛
The new poll is: How do you choose what to play next? The poll will be open until November 30th at 11:59 PM! You can find it in the side bar (or if you are using a phone/tablet @ the bottom of the page). If you still can’t find it, click the link HERE! I look forward to your responses!
