But where to begin? Here's four things you've probably been putting off that you should start today...

Perks of Being a Lab Rat



Last year I started to lab one of my favorite pets, Evernone. I'm not sure if I started just for the stats or just for fun but either way, it happened. I care dearly for her but come on, life as a ghost Aisha can only go so far before you have to check out other things! To this day, she is still being zapped.
