While watching Mat pat’s GT Live channel on YouTube; I discovered a dark fantasy jump scare game called Five Night’s at Freddy’s. The game takes place in a pizzeria like a Chuck E. Chesses.

Luna introduced me to the classic comedic anime Inuyasha, thinking I would enjoy the comedic nature between the characters and its use of time travel. The show equally balances both the present world in Tokyo, Japan and Japan's Sengoku Period.

When you love British culture as much Luna and I, what is the best way to celebrate a joyous occasion? By going to high tea! High tea occurs in the morning or in the afternoon with a warm pot of tea and scrumptious sweet and savory snacks such as tea cakes and tea sandwiches.

Parents of young children often deal with their children asking them to check their closet and under the bed for monsters. Pixar created a film bringing the monsters from childhood to life. Showing them as being more human then we gave them credit for.
