3 Video Games My Parakeet Loves

3 Video Games My Parakeet Loves

When I started my blog nearly a year ago, I started it with a very untalented logo that showed a little bird chirping about video games. Although I had to change things up a while ago (licence issues are the worst when you can’t draw), that little bird was inspired by my pet parakeet, Kiwi.

I thought I had everything all figured out when I started planning which couches I wanted to arrange around my fireplace.
