Friendmendations 7.12.21

Oh, hi. Remember this?

Since December, I've been working for a startup that's slowly taken up all my time and energy. I've tried to adapt my schedule and the newsletter around it, but it wasn't working out. It was a cool job for a cool company, but I don't think it was right for me right now. So I quit!

A lot of stuff has happened recently that I'd like to write about — explosive #FreeBritney developments, a New York Times profile of Dan Schneider, Olivia Rodrigo in general – and I haven't had the time to do so. I'm gonna try to get back to it, and I'm going back to the old format and posting schedule too. (Well, possibly a modified version of the old format. Do recs posts need as much writeup as I give them? Maybe those can be streamlined.)

I'm sorry my updates have been so sporadic. Making a living is hard. I'm going to try to do writing and other creative stuff full-time, and I'm genuinely terrified. We'll see how it goes!!!

That's it for this week. Thanks for sticking with me. I appreciate you all so much.

Just like my country: innovative, complicated, and problematic.
24 times I was disoriented or upset by the 2012 arena tour revival of “Jesus Christ Superstar”
Now let’s talk about BAD musicals!
