Tuesday 13th June.
Had a driving lesson, had to push my test back. Then decided to put lipstick on to make myself feel better. Which it did. Went to college. Had a mock in history which I’ve probably done terrible in despite revision. Came home, eventful night. Decided to add a photo of Romeo the cat so I wasn’t being vain af.
Saturday 17th June.
Spent half the day in bed, went to Manchester for a quick last minute Father’s Day gift buying hunt. Went to Matthews for some drinks and now on my way home. Wore fishnets cos so edgy.
Tuesday 20th June.
Had a really good driving lesson then finished off some coursework. Went to college 1-4 and it was very hot yet again. Just been doing coursework and watching OITNB from the start. It’s been quite a good day.
Sunday 18th June.
Father’s Day. I had my first class at NWTAC which was fun and then went over to my dads for a bit. Came back home and spent way too long trying to finish coursework but it’s now done. It is so so so so so hot.
New Project Announcement: 365 Lessons From A Year In The Genre
So, I had an idea yesterday and decided that I want to do what I’m best at – and that seems to be writing and analyzing superhero-genre media. I feel like I haven’t been studying the genre the way that I learn best, and if I want to achieve my dreams and contribute to the genre of superhero mythology, I need to start doing that again.
The ways I learn best involve daily engagement with the media and writing down interesting and powerful things about the media I consume. It’s how I studied the XMCU, it’s how I analyzed the hell out of Batman v Superman, and it’s how I wound up so invested in both Smallville and Gotham.
So, starting tomorrow, I will be posting a daily brief reflection on the thing I watched or read that day in the superhero genre. It could be a comic book issue, it could be a storyline, an episode or arc of TV, or a movie. All posts will be tagged with #365Days for easy organization.
I hope you decide to come on this journey with me, and I hope that I learn what I need to about the genre in order to improve my own contributions to it and to the craft of genre-specific journalism.
Monday 12th June.
Had college until half 12, then spent £7 in costa just so I could revise for an hour. Went to work, nice 5 hour shift. I’m now knackered and not prepared for the stress of tomorrow. Felt cute though.
Wednesday 21st June.
Didn’t go to college and had a trip out to Clitherhoe instead. Went to a pub called the spread eagle inn (he only had himself to blame) before going to a cute little cafe/restaurant place and sat out in the sun.
Sunday 11th June.
Had an 8 hour shift at work and made my debut on their social media for the first time. Also found out I got into the stage school I auditioned for and I’m going to put that monologue to good use I think. Had a bath and had an early night instead of revising.
