September 2023 Rewind

Did you miss any of my blog posts this month? Don’t worry; I’m always here to keep you caught up!

September 2023 Rewind Hispanic Fabric Inspired Collage

There were some significant changes made to the blog this month. In solidarity with the writer's and actor's strikes, I didn't write about movies or TV shows. Admittedly, finding topics I wanted to write about proved more difficult than anticipated, but it also created an interesting new avenue for creativity.

An even more significant change occurred to the publishing schedule. I felt overwhelmed and creatively drained by my previous schedule, so I decreased the number of articles published monthly. I could write more freely and creatively, reigniting the passion I once had for this craft.

I wrote a poem begging the universe to tell me the key to success. Poetically describing my desperation for a career in writing was cathartic. George and I tried making a focaccia bread recipe that we're still unsure we did correctly. It made a couple of delicious sandwiches, though.

I reviewed Qveen Herby's new EP and detailed her new definition of a Housewife. It made me feel empowered in my ambition. In celebration of the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, I reviewed Yesika Salgado's poetry collection, Hermosa. It made me realize how internalized trauma can turn into beautiful art.

Even with my reduced release schedule, I will always keep one of my favorite parts of the blog, the Featured Artist Interview. This month, I had the pleasure of interviewing AKASUGE, an audio engineer and musician working hard, training himself and others to make music he's proud of.
