March Updates: Project Announcement!

March is my “pandemic anniversary,” and I gotta admit the last year has made it difficult for me to muster up the energy to post. That said, pandemic blues are not the only reason why I stayed away. I’ve also been working on a very big project that will drop at the end of this month!

September Updates: New Words, New Podcasts, and What I’m Watching

Alas, look what the cat dragged in. After a summer filled with ups and downs (and plenty of social-distance camping to keep my sanity), I’m back to puttering away in the office. As part of this, I wanted to make a quick post about what I’ve been up to over the past couple of months, and where to check out my recent work. I’m also going to dip into new shows and series that I’ve been watching that may be of interest.

What to Read Next: Recommendation Roundup, Pandemic Edition

Well, well, well. I’m finally sinking back into a regular posting schedule, and I have to admit it feels a bit weird since I’ve been writing everywhere but my blog for a long time.

5 Romance Recs for Galentine’s Day

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and if you’re anything like me—a fan of free chocolate and a bit too obsessed with fictional villains—you might be looking for some romance recs to help you weather this winter holiday. There’s a lot of lists out there for mainstream romance that are really good, but if you’re looking for fantasy or sci-fi—if you’re looking for more uhh, niche stuff, inside of that—then I might have a couple recommendations up my sleeve.

‘Office’ and the Horror of Millennial Job Prospects

Well. I’m finally getting around to talking about the Korean horror film ‘Office,’ perhaps because it’s that time of year. New year, new me, everyone keeps saying, but the world is stressful. I’ve been dealing with this stress the same way I deal with most things: by watching movies until I fall asleep. ‘Office’ was released in 2015, so it’s definitely not new. But its depiction of unsteady, underpaid work as a subliminal form of terror is a great analogy to draw.
