Finishing season two of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, podcast thoughts and other reflections

In an episode of Hidden Brain that was political in nature, Shankar Vedantam talked with a couple people about how an individual’s political beliefs are influenced by the ways in which they think about issues that we’re facing and issues that we have faced in society. I loved hearing this perspective because it’s something I …

More assorted podcast thoughts, childfree thoughts, mixed life updates and togetherness

I recently went back and re-read my Claircognizance journal that I’d created at the end of last year. And the reason I looked at it recently, was because I wanted to see whether I’d put the weekday that corresponded with each date. And I had not actually done that; so I took the time to …

TV show thoughts, a fun adventure with a friend, controversial opinions and other reflections

When I posted my last blog entry, I forgot to talk about how some of the MyChart appp settings are weird. So the first time I’d tried to put in for a medication refill, I submitted a refill request through said app. And then since I didn’t have any luck getting the desired results with …

More thoughts on Anne with an E, childfree topics and thoughts on disability/romantic relationships

When I last wrote about Ann with an E, I didn’t even try to spell the name of the new friend that Anne makes in the third season of the show. And since I’d forgotten to look it up then, I made sure to look it up for this particular blog post. Anne’s new friend’s …

Assorted thoughts on technology, Emergence, and being childfree

Something I didn’t write about regarding the latest episode of Emergence, is that we the viewers learn for sure that Jo still has romantic feelings for her ex-husband. Jo also has romantic feelings for Agent Ryan Brooks (who’s the FBI agent that’s kinda competing with Jo in a sense, to solve the case of Piper). …

More thoughts on Anne with an E, the latest Emergence episode, atheism, upcoming Netflix releases and more

In the show Anne with an E that I’ve been watching on Netflix, something else that stood out to me, was that given how small the town of Avonlea is, Rachel (the gossipy lady I’d mentioned here before) fabricated this idea in the townspeople’s minds that Miss Muriel Stacy was an awful woman. Rachel had …

Thoughts on a Netflix show, a podcast, supporting people’s differences and advice I give to others

One of my favorite parts in the Netflix original show Anne with an E, is when Marilla and Anne are having an intense discussion with one another. What they’re talking about, is that they may have to give up Green Gables because they can no longer afford to maintain it. And one of the things …

More podcast thoughts, a weird/disturbing dream, a heated discussion and some school/life updates

The last story on the eppisode of the This American Life podcast that discussed the hardships families go through during the holidays, was another interesting thing to me. Because what this story was about, was a man who’d known that for years, there were folks in Mexico who hadn’t seen family members of theirs because …

Thoughts on a podcast, assorted thoughts on the fact I’m childfree and a rant

In a recent episode of the This American Life podcast, its host Ira Glass talked about what it can be like when people go home to their families for the holidays. But initially, when I first saw the title/synopsis of this episode, I wasn’t planning to listen to it. Because the episode came out around …
