“Salvation is certainly among the reasons I read. Reading and writing have always pulled me out of the darkest experiences in my life. Stories have given me a place in which to lose myself. They have allowed me to remember. They have allowed me to forget. They have allowed me to imagine different endings and better possible worlds.”—Roxane Gay - ‘What We Hunger For'
Have you ever been so consumed with stress that almost everything in your life just seems to take a back seat to this physical and emotional villain?
I’ve wanted to write and I’ve sat down to write, but everything I want to write just gets all jumbled up with this moving stress. We still, with just a week to the end of the month, have not received a 100% ‘Yes’ that we have the apartment that I’ve been talking to the real estate agency for weeks about. I’ve tried being as nice as possible about this whole thing with them because it’s a family run business and I fear one false move and we’re out.
I’m thankful if this doesn’t work out in the next week, like I am hoping, we will have some place to live temporarily. We won’t be homeless - technically. That obviously takes a bit of the stress away, but just a bit.
I want this villain to be gone, to get settled in a new place, and get back to writing. I have a book to finish.
i want to start watching utopia but i'm afraid it might be too intense - could you summarize it a bit? i tried to read an online summary but i'm afraid of spoilers. <3
Utopia is definitely intense, but brilliant and so worth watching. I really can’t encourage more people to scrape the surface of the internet (or email me for tips) to find it all online to watch (at least in America).
Deadline describes it like this:
The series revolves around the die-hard fans of an iconic, underground graphic novel who are suddenly launched into their own pop-culture thriller when they learn that the author has secretly written a sequel. Unfortunately, the new manuscript is much more than just a book and those on the hunt for it suddenly find themselves in a game of shifting loyalties, conspiracy and shocking twists as the true meaning of the book is slowly revealed.
That’s basically the gist of the story. There are a handful of main characters, one most notably is Curtis from Misfits. Fiona O’Shaughnessy plays another main character and without getting into spoilers she is just genius and weird and such a great character.
There are six episodes in each season/series if you’re British. The final episode of season 2 just aired on August 12th.
