Trainer Silver Wants to Battle!


I recently took a short break from blogging and social media. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by work, side projects with ridiculous self-imposed deadlines, and my renewed art hobby.

Getting to Know You & Me

Chester tagged me to answer a few questions for getting to know you & me. It looks like a lot of fun, and I hope you’d join us too!
