How to Impress your Girlfriend’s Parents
During my time studying Communications at AUT, I took a variety of courses. From acting to creative writing, and radio production to game design. However when all four years had past, I came out as an Advertising major.

Quiet Stories’ Book Club: January 2019
These are our game recommendations for the month of January 2019. It’s our last post of 2018, and our first look into 2019. So to change things up for the new year… we will now be adding VR games on a monthly basis!
This is the Quiet Stories’ Book Club, a monthly series where we challenge you to beat at least one of the games on our list. We’ll have expansive and time consuming games, for gamers on a limited budget. We’ll have smaller, more digestible titles, for gamers with little spare time. We’ll showcase a variety of genres and platforms. We’ll recommend the newest, most talked about games, and some older titles that you probably heard about but didn’t give the time of day to. The point is, we’ll have something to cater to everyone’s needs. Hopefully you’ll end up trying something new or discover a hidden gem.
