A lover of all things creepy and chilling, with a particular fascination for horror and true crime. I enjoy binge-watching documentaries on unsolved mysteries - always eager to explore the darker side of human nature. My introduction to the world of gaming is through classics like Metal Slug, Tekken, Dragon Warrior, and Ragnarok Online. A fan of open-world games that allow me to explore and immerse myself in new worlds. Played all the GTAs and is eagerly awaiting the release of the franchise's sixth installment. Outside of my digital adventures, I am inseparable from my fluffy furbaby, Teemo. Whether snuggled up on the couch or out exploring the great outdoors, we are a dynamic duo that bring joy and comfort to each other's lives.
