    Wait… how is Gia “less casual” than Edo???

    Well I actually enjoyed this series. I think more stuff like this would be nice.

    I also think that the blog needs more guest writers. Although I didn’t like Nima’s writing style (I feel like he wants people to think “Chinna mu Kuwaiti” about him too much), it was kinda interesting to have someone else writing on the blog.
