Day 2. 15/03/2022. Eric Bong

However, to me, it really just seemed to be fruitless hard labour. Why lose my precious days sweating my ass off when I could be GAMING?

The routine screams of my Warzone teammates ring through the remnants of my G432 Logitech headphones. As usual, we clean up the game, ending the night with multiple wins in our pockets. This was all we boys needed to keep happy, I'd say.Bookmark here
