The Week That Was [2.24]

Phew. Lots of writing this week. At least I felt like it was. I have word counter on the site and it tells me that I wrote some 4900 words this week. I guess that’s a good amount? I figured I’d compile a link of posts I wrote for the week (not all of them, but some of my more favorite ones) to share with some possibly updated thoughts.

  • I turned 33 this week. Just a phenomenal week spending with my wife and my boys. Don’t really have much to add here except for the fact that I’ve been more creative in the past week than I’ve been in quite some time. Feeling so refreshed in that regards and hope I can keep it up.
  • Before the CPD charged Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report, I talked about the importance of a police department not letting stories leak out. I still stand by that. With Jussie, there’s no telling what was going on in his mind. I know the motive the CPD has laid out there is to make more money, but that just doesn’t equate in my head. More will come out about this, but the fact remains the CPD shouldn’t have been leaking news in regards to this case until all the facts were laid out.
  • I wrote not once, but twice about trolls attacking Rian Johnson and Brie Larson. Enough is enough. Cut off their voices because their voices only give credence to hate and bile. They should not be given an avenue to amplify their hate.
  • From a technology standpoint, I wrote about the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Games-as-a-Service with the launch of Anthem this past Friday. Nothing new to say here.

I’m happy that my posts provided some variety this week, but I haven’t even scratched the surface. I’m working on a post for this afternoon in regards to the Oscars. I want to talk about sports this week. I want to continue to find interesting pieces and stories that are important to me from a pop culture standpoint as well as socially important. If you have something you would like for me to write about it, leave it in the comments and I’ll see if I have something to say about it.
