Of Freelance and Quarantine

Well, hello there world! It’s basically May and my little heart has missed this blog and ranting and raving about TV shows and movies. Like many of you, I’ve been home since mid-March, trying to manage. I’ve Zoomed, I’ve FaceTimed, I’ve done it all. I finished up my post-grad program right as the stay-at-home order began in March and let me tell you that the job hunt in the advertising world in a pandemic is….well you can imagine, especially because I live right across the Hudson from New York City.

Thankfully, I still have a freelance job, copywriting, and doing some content creation that is getting me by. It’s definitely not how I imagined the first few weeks of post-grad life but I feel like I said that years ago when I got my bachelor’s degree.


I’m so ready to get back into fiction writing and talking about television, music, and movies. Lately, I’ve been bingeing an anime called Haikyu on my lunch break. It’s a great show. I definitely didn’t expect to like another sports anime after watching Prince of Tennis back in middle school. I also finally saw Parasite! It was so good. The film had so many messages and moments that kept me engaged.

School got me behind on all of my favorites so here’s my watchlist.

  1. Extraction
  2. The Last Kingdom (Season 4)
  3. How to Get Away With Murder (Season 6)
  4. Big Little Lies
  5. Legion (Season 3)
  6. Queen Sugar (Season 4)
  7. Locke & Key
  8. The Crown (Season 3 – Started but didn’t finish)
  9. Cheer
  10. Insecure

What shows have been watching lately and what’s a habit you’ve started or broken during quarantine?
