A Better Lens

People with an overabundance of self esteem are referred to as narcissists, after Narcissus, the son of the Greek river god Cephissus.

I may be someone who’s eaten the same lunch every day since 2002, but even I like to shake things up sometimes. In 2018 I want to try something new. I’m still going to write about games, but instead of reviewing them, I’m going to tell you a story.
