Is this week just a hot mess or what? There’s a bunch of stuff you can get out there and take part in if you’re feeling like you’d like to take a more positive role in the community rather than watching dumpster fires in the comments sections of the social medias. Who’s got time for that anyway at this point with all these awesome, actual things with actual people involved. Here it is, your top ten things to get into courtesy the fine folks at #WDDI. Go get ‘em.
