Have you ever been a party where you just felt instantly at home and bummed when it ended?  Chances are, it was set up by someone who made sure some basic essentials were taken care of for you.  If you are new to being a host, have no fear.  You too can prevent a mid-party facepalm.  Whether it is a small night of board games, a barbecue, or a jivin’ dance party, there are a few easy things you can prepare to make your friends feel comfortable and happy all night long.

I do a lot of socializing on social media – it became pretty important to me once I started working mostly from home. But I’ve had a hard time with many of my usual platforms because of different trends I’m seeing, not the least of which is too much re-sharing of posts. Sometimes I feel like everything is on repeat on social media. That’s usually when I boot up Instagram. I’ve worked hard at limiting the accounts I follow on Instagram. For me, it’s a smaller network and one I’ve designed to help me feel inspired. So, I thought I would share five accounts thatRead More →

Recently, I was listening to the Nerdette podcast and came across an episode where the hosts interviewed Peter Sagal. I actually enjoyed the interview as a whole, but something Mr. Sagal casually said in the beginning irked me and, weeks later, still sticks in my craw. It came at the end of an explanation of how “nerds” these days have it so much easier than he did as a boy: “Guys, you’re not nerds; you’re fans, you’re enthusiasts.” What? Hold on a second. I have a huge problem with people denying others the right to claim the labels they wish to, be it nerd orRead More →

Hi! My name is Isabela and I’m the intern here at Game on Girl. I help out with some of the behind the scenes stuff on the site and with the podcast. My introduction to gaming was when I was eight, when my parents bought a Nintendo 64 for my brother. My younger brother and I obsessively played the three games we had: Donkey Kong 64, Mario Kart 64, and Star Wars Episode I: Racer. I may be terrible at them, but I still get nostalgic playing racing games. I still have the ol’ gal and she still works great. The same can’t be saidRead More →
