Hey everyone! Welcome to my page where I will generally just be jotting things down from my life while finding a way to balance writing for the amazing fansite Future of the Force (seriously, once you’re done reading this, you should check it out), and being in my last semester of college. With mid-terms roughly a month away, I can’t promise how often I’ll update this, but I plan for it to at least be once to twice a week.
A little about me: while I have Asperger’s Syndrome, I don’t let it stop me from anything. Sure, it may make certain things such as learning given various topics over the course of one semester, more difficult for me than my peers, but as of yet, it hasn’t stopped me.
As of the writing of this, I am a little more than three months away from graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Literature, Reading and Writing, essentially English. Well, actually, it’s not official yet as I have not received any paperwork or email saying that everything is cleared and as long as I complete these final classes I’m good to go, but according to my graduation checklist, I’m well on my way to walking across that stage come May.
I am both nervous and excited. Nervous because after all these long, hard years, the one constant in my life, school, is coming to an end. With that also comes the need for a real job. As such, my hope is to be able to get a job writing for a publication such as Popsugar, Buzzfeed, or if I was somehow ridiculously lucky enough, Lucasfilm. Seriously, Star Wars is my life. At the same time, I’m excited because finally! All my hard work is going pay off so speak.
In the meantime, I have noticed over the years that where many people see errors in plot points, characters, tones and the like, thus criticize them, I don’t. Nine times out of ten, I don’t see the flaws and inconsistencies unless they’re blatantly obvious (see Super Leia in Star Wars: The Last Jedi). More than that, I typically don’t realize them until after the particular show/movie. Even then, I tend to just give it the brush off and enjoy the movie/show anyway. This means that while many hate a certain movie/show, I’ll likely love it.
As such, it is with this site that I plan to look at shows and movies such as ABC’s The Good Doctor, CBS’s Scorpion, CW’s Arrow and The Flash, Star Wars, Spider-Man, and The Avengers, from a different point of view.
Until then, my head is currently spinning from attempting to speed read William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, not an easy thing to do mind you. His writing style, while interesting, is difficult to comprehend. Even prior to starting the book, my professor warned the class that we would have to read it twice in order to fully understand it. Uh, read it twice? I barely have time to read it once. Thank you Spark Notes for helping to fill in the blanks. Well, looking at the time before my next class, I better get back to it.
Hope to talk to you guys again soon!
