Lumosity. It’s a Problem. 

train game
In August, K came to visit. It was glorious! One thing she left me with was an addiction to Lumosity.

It’s kind of just another phone app, but it’s supposed to be good for your brain. Hey, I’ll take something that makes me smarter!

I am so obsessed with this game (and my use of the word obsession here is not in the typical blog sense of “oh it’s a trend that I like”). When this game comes up, I cannot stop playing it. It can go on for over an hour.
