    Weekly Summary-Week 14-Goodbye, DS106!


    Wow, I can’t believe is the final week of DS106!

    So, for this final week of DS106, it follows the easy-hard pattern. The last two weeks were a bit harder than this week, only because I didn’t have to do as much this week!

    A Spider’s Point Of View


    There’s that girl again. I suppose I shouldn’t say again, since she lives here too. She’s a strange one, and not very nice either. Just last week I saw her kill one of the gnats on the pink walls of our room. She isn’t much for sharing, or at least …

    Weekly Summary-Week 11-Much better!


    I know last week I seemed (and was) a bit frustrated. However, this week was better!

    Weekly Summary-Week 10-So Frustrating!


    Yeah, this week was hard. For me personally, this was the hardest one yet. While I finished quicker than with other weeks, I felt far less comfortable with what I had to do and had less of a fun time. Everything was so slow and tedious! It didn’t help that …
