My brain is consumed by editing. Some days it works. Other days it does not. Here’s a few of the things that are working (or not working) for me during this trying time. Continue reading
Finally, months after most of them finished, I’m catching up on the TV shows I watch. Unfortunately, for the most part, I am underwhelmed, and even the ones I liked were usually depressing.
