She Geek Critique – Trying to Keep Up

With everything going on in daily life, it is often difficult to keep up with hobbies and interests. Sure, hobbies are supposed to be casual and enjoyable like writing, painting, reading, hiking, baking and the like. But when your interests are constantly updating and hobbies involve timeframes, you can lose track and things pile up before you know it.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Trying to Keep Up

Irregular’s Intel – Before or After?

This week I finished The Coldest City by Antony Johnson. It is a graphic novel that takes place about 2 days before the Berlin Wall comes down in November of 1989. The movie Atomic Blonde is based on this book. But before picking it up I faced a dilemma: do I read it before I see the movie or after?  Continue reading Irregular’s Intel – Before or After?

She Geek Critique – Always Be Reading

I don’t typically talk about what I do “for a living”, but I’m an editor.

Irregular’s Intel – Mental Vacations

I may be stating the obvious here, but we all want and need time away. It’s why we look forward to that precious time off from work. We write songs about it, dedicate commercials to ways of making it better, and there’s an entire industry dedicated to making that time off the absolute best that it can be. But, you know, we also do this in little ways. We don’t have to pack up the Vista Cruiser and head to Wally World nor do we need to head to the Golden Arches to have a break. We have everything we need between our ears.  Continue reading Irregular’s Intel – Mental Vacations
