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.
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. Not weird in a bad way, per se, but still strange. To make it easier on everyone, I’m going to round up a list of sci-fi series (books and movies) that I’ve watched through the course of the pandemic and enjoyed.
This was not the post I was expecting to write when I came back to this blog. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, so I guess I should start off by asking “how is everyone?” Are you all adjusting to a life of pandemic-enforced solitude, along with a quarantine of indeterminate length?
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.
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.
I have to admit, I’m pretty pleased that I got this list together before 2018 goes out with a bang. Consider this my go-to for shows that I’ve watched this year, and what you should watch, too. Especially if you’re an enemies-to-lovers or sci-fi horror fan like myself.
I finally did it. Every now and then—when Murphy’s Law cuts me a break and the planets align through some sort of ordinance—a couple good things happen in quick succession. I’ve always been wary of putting too much faith in good events. But for the first time ever, I managed to participate in NaNoWriMo.
For those of you who were following this blog before (and haven’t seen it updated in ages)—hello! I’m back from the dead. I’ve also returned with a complete 180 degree switch in content.
