A Film Festival Screening and A Zoom Play

When was the last time I did a spotlight on two major announcements for my weekly Saturday blog post? That would have to be back at the beginning of August 2018 a.k.a. “simpler times.” To think that I would have some big announcements to make in the midst of a pandemic might sound kind of odd, and yet that’s exactly what is happening today. So here it goes: Continue reading “A Film Festival Screening and A Zoom Play”

The Search is Over

For a while, I wasn’t sure if I would say anything on the matter. However, seeing that I have provided updates about it for the better part of a half year, it made sense to follow up on it.

It’s been six months since YOMYOMF got shut down, and since then, I’ve been struggling with finding a new outlet to venture out to. I’m happy to now say that apart from now being a contributor to my job’s blog, I’ve also become a part of not one but two other outlets. Continue reading “The Search is Over”

[Pause]

In the aftermath of the horrific shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand that have cost the lives of 49 people, I pause today to grieve. My regards to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for being there for her people during this time, and thank you to the New Zealand government for making the quick decision to ban semi-automatic guns – a decision that, for some reason, is up for political debate when it comes to the safety of people here in the U.S.

But of course, that is only a step, for this shooting is evidence of the Islamophobia that is still alive in the world. That in of itself needs to be brought to a definite end, and it starts by being there for our Muslim friends who are hurting right now.

I pause from my weekly blog post today to grieve. My thoughts are with the people of Christchurch.

Special Sunday Post: Ko-fi Reminder

Hey everyone!

I know that this is an unplanned post during my hiatus, but I found it a wise time to remind you about my Ko-fi campaign. For those who don’t know, six months ago, I signed up for the crowdfunding platform, in hopes of receiving support for all the writing that I do. While it sounds very similar to Patreon, the primary difference is that unlike Patreon, there’s no monthly commitment. You can donate however much you like and however frequently you like.

What Did I Miss?: October 2018

Hey everyone!

I hope you’ve all been doing well since I announced my hiatus. While you’re receiving this message now, I’m actually writing it out a few weeks in advance, and I can imagine that I’m really benefiting from this time away from the blog.

In any case, as mentioned in my hiatus announcement, starting this month and going forward, I’m having these “What Did I Miss?” posts appear on a monthly basis rather than a weekly basis. While I think I was wise in starting these series of posts last year, I’m not sure if a weekly basis is really the best schedule for it, for there are times where the list is very short – like, one item short. So I think releasing them all in one post covering an entire month will be a lot more sufficient going forward, and I hope you think so too.

In which case, here is what you missed for the month of October: Continue reading “What Did I Miss?: October 2018”
