It’s Been A While…

Post Image

Right before I set out to write this update, I remembered that after today, 2017 is more than halfway over, which I find to be somewhat ridiculous. They always say every year passes you by quicker than the last, but this is starting to feel like I’m on a roller coaster. That’s not to say that this year hasn’t been [...]

The Best Movies of 2016

Post Image

So as previously mentioned, this is coming a bit later than I’d initially planned, but with so many good movies coming out at the end of the year, I had to see a few more films before making this list. 2016 was a great year for cinema, and I feel like this list represents a rather wide range in genre [...]

The Best TV Shows of 2016

Post Image

So technically it’s 2017, but I still have to talk about all of the great television that happened last year. I meant to post this before the end of 2016, but alas, the holiday season kept me rather busy. While there were some great new seasons of shows that premiered in years past, I decided to only include shows that [...]

The Best Books of 2016

Post Image

I wish I could have read more this year. I found myself constantly yearning for more time to dive into a story, but because of work, travels, or busying myself with other projects, I didn’t have the chance to explore as many narratives as I would have liked to. Nevertheless, I did discover some fascinating reads in 2016, and it’s [...]

The Best Albums of 2016

Post Image

While this year has kind of been a shitshow, I’ve found inspiration in a number of places. I thought it’d be fun to list my top five albums, books, tv shows, and movies that came out this year. These are the best pieces of art that I couldn’t get enough of. To kick off my best of list, I present [...]

Japan, Bender, Moving Forward

Post Image

I recently got back from a 10-day solo journey around Japan, and it was an utterly fantastic experience. I had never traveled alone internationally before, so it was definitely quite the adventure. Japan was just as beautiful as I imagined, and I feel blessed that I got to visit, and see so much in so little time. It was the [...]

I haven’t written a real post in almost six months now, so this felt extremely overdue. I have lots of exciting news to share, the first being that I am working in publishing again and I’m super excited about it. At the beginning of this month I started as a Production Editor at Becker & Mayer. I am working on [...]

New Perspectives

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted an entry, but I suppose that just allows me to chat more about what has happened in the months in between I last wrote. I HAVE A JOB! But in all seriousness, I said at the end of my last entry that I hoped to have a job by my next [...]
