This was a stressful week, hence why I deviated from my normal posting schedule. I think I managed to bring out some pretty cool material, though, and I hope you enjoyed it. If you missed anything, here it is again.
I greatly enjoyed reading through Anne of Green Gables again, and I’m looking forward to working my way through the other books soon. I don’t generally review children’s books, but this one is so significant to me that I couldn’t ignore it.
This is my first assignment piece for Bustle, and I have to say, I love working under assignment. It definitely takes away a lot of the pressure to come up with new ideas, and that’s a godsend during a week like this one. So check out my list and let me know if and how yours differs.
The flibanserin issue intrigued me from the very beginning. Here was a drug with a spotty history, marketed to women for a condition with a spotty history, as part of a spotty cultural history. I mean, how could I not write this?
I cried and did a little dance when I found out about Final Fantasy VII Remake. Unfortunately, the lack of confirmation on an Android port of the PC version dampered the news slightly. Still, as I point out here, Samsung users have hope.
Ponytail Link was absent at E3 this year, but that didn’t stop their fans from talking and demanding their presence. This article is a short overview of Link’s androgyny and its place in Legend of Zelda as an institution.
I wrote this article after I first applied to Bustle, and I’m so glad they decided to publish it. This was a fun piece to write, although it did require me to spoil some parts of season 3 for myself. Check it out if you love Orange Is the New Black and/or books.
I know it will most definitely lost me some cool points to say this, but Rami Ismail tweeted this article (after I tagged him to let him know his tweets made the cut). So you should read it, because the snark is strong with that man.
I was writing what is now next week’s article when I realized I needed to write this first. Does that happen to anyone else? Let me know if it helped you, and, if it didn’t, how I can help you more.
This is another of my Bustle application articles. I’m a latecomer to the journaling game, and I still haven’t completely nailed down my perfect method. However, I do find that keeping a journal makes content sourcing so much easier. How does it help you?
I’m excited about all three of these games, even though I don’t currently have a console that will play any of them. If anyone needs me, I’ll be playing Super Mario RPG and reveling in the nostalgia.
Like the RPG mashups I mentioned earlier, I’ve been looking forward to the release of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, even though I don’t have a PS4 or any plans to purchase one. Now that I see The Chinese Room’s Welcome to Nightvale-esque Station 52 documents, I’m even more impressed.
