Jack of All Trades, Master of None

Lazy days in bed become the most productive for the mind.

Jack of All Trades, Master of None
http://www.vanityfair.com

And it all started from my most recently binged-watched show...

Arriving at the finale of season 2, Master of None left me with an odd aftertaste--a lingering urge to do something about my life. Something else. Aziz Ansari, with his subtle yet overflowing genius, inspired me to get my own juices flowing.

For those who haven't seen the Netflix drama-comedy series (get on that soon), the title itself encapsulates its magic. Ansari as Dev Shaw takes us on his all too realistic journey of almosts--his almost lovers, his almost significant rise to stardom, and his almost multi-cultural environment--in the midst of the always iconic New York City. The series touches upon all trades and topics and people--from religion to the LGBT community to pasta-making--revealing the various depths and dimensions of humanity. All with tasteful humor and occasional yet genuine tears.

In short, a pretty dope show.

After accepting the fact that I finished the series all too quickly, listening to its iconic season one and two Spotify playlists for two days, and contemplating if I should watch it again (which is bound to happen), I eventually booted into self-reflection mode.

...how do I show my own trades? How do I express my personal varieties, the different sides of me?

Which, my friends, leads me to share with all of you a fetus in the making...my next (hopefully) exciting project. Right now, it stands as a mere abstract concept, but it's getting there. May this extension of my creative outlet be as pure as this current platform, and more. May it still remain a journey for those who witness it, just with a little bit more 'tude and heart and adventure and everything else.

Oh, and by the way, I am still not done fan-girling about Ansari or his masterpiece of a show. I have only just begun. *wink*

Stay tuned.

And as always, never a goodbye.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

19900

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
