So as I’m sure many of you know I am a creature of the night. I mean my column for The Collegiate is named Night Light. However that being said I’ve been getting up earlier as of late. Today I even got up at noon. And as a result I had even more time on my hands than usual, so I figured I’d get in some writing for my personnel hobby/ obsession/ dream job… writing comics or at least transcripts for them as I’ve got the artistic ability of a elderly black lab with a paint brush duct taped to its paw. Well, anyways, I finally completed my first full transcript for an issue. So be looking for my “award winning” comics on the shelves.
As July is coming to an end and the coronavirus is still here I find myself saying to people more and more, “I’ve got nothing to say.” Thank goodness for texting because I can think of a response for five minutes. It’s weird how excited and relieved I get when talking/texting with someone discussing something new which doesn’t have a tie to the coronavirus.
With all the free time I currently have, I’ve been watching a lot of movies. I have an overflowing list of films I want to watch so this has given me a chance to work on that ever-growing list. One of my friends told me about an app, Letterboxd, that helps organize movies you want to watch, as well as allows you to rate and review movies you have watched. This is helping me keep track of all the films on my watch list. Recently I’ve watched, “Good Time,” from the same creators of “Uncut Gems.” It’s about two brothers who rob a bank, however one gets caught. I thought it was really good, the directors are known for making the audience feel anxious and that held true in this movie.
I work at a corporate office downtown and I am beginning to wonder if it will ever return to what it was in the past. There are roughly 20% of the amount of people working in the building compared to what it was prior to the onset of COVID-19. The amenities such as the gym and cafeteria are closed with no plan of reopening soon. People have become accustomed to working from home but I wonder what they prefer: being in an office or at home.
