The Future of PastelleGeek

So I’ve been in the works of something new and exciting for this blog for a while now! Over Christmas break, I looked more into creating a Patreon for this blog that will allow me to bring more content to you folx and I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be moving towards more comics and film reviews for this blog! In an effort to remain proactive for this blog, I reached out to my friends, Danica and Brandon, the owners of Variant Edition Comics + Used Books in Edmonton, Alberta. Starting this month, I’ll be selecting some titles from their #PreNCBD Twitter threads, creating a poll, and getting you and my Patreon supporters to vote on which title I will be reading and reviewing that month. If interest holds, I’ll also be implementing this system for film and television episode reviews! If you are part of specific tiers for my Patreon, you’ll be asked to help me select some titles from Danica and Brandon!

I’m really excited about this opportunity since I feel like it’ll give me the opportunity to be more proactive into adding on to this blog. While I have your attention, you can find my Patreon here! I urge you to have a peek around and I thank you for even checking it out! For now, though, Happy Wednesday and I look forward to bringing more content to everyone!

The Witching Hour: The Beginnings of My Undergrad Thesis

As many of you know, I’ve decided to write on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina for my Honours thesis project. And the second week of school has started and I’m already like . . . super overwhelmed.

Like a lot of you know, I was assaulted last semester and it took a huge toll on my mental health, which ended up in me failing my Earth and Atmospheric Science class’s lab and getting a D in Augustan Literature. Thankfully, I can graduate with a D. Unluckily, though, I have to retake a science course in order to graduate in June. So . . . I’m taking Philosophy of Science. And Magical Realism. And my thesis. And Linguistics 101. And intro to video game design.

Thesis Project!

Well Christmas has come and gone and it’s almost the new year, which also means it’ll be my final semester at MacEwan, and with that, I’ll be starting my thesis project.

I’m super excited to announce that my thesis project will be on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and liminality. I’ll be taking a more Gothic and theoretical approach with this project and I’m thinking about looking at theorists like Kristeva, Lacan, Freud, etc. I’m not going to talk about it super long today but I wanted to formally announce it. I’ll also be chronicling my journey here and I’ve also been contemplating starting up a podcast! If you’re interested in a podcast, please feel free to tweet to me! Or even email me!

I hope your Christmases and holiday celebrations have all been marvelous and I’m wishing you all the best in the New Year!

Thesis Project Decisions

Well, it’s November, which means that the Fall 2018 semester is coming to a close, which also means that it’s almost time for me to start my thesis project. While my initial plan when I declared as an Honours English major was to study comics and literary theory together, my vision has kind of . . . transformed. Throughout the past year and a half, I’ve steadily added and added and added to my list of thesis projects and ended up with a whopping list of 15 different thesis projects, much to the chagrin of my supervisors. This week, I met with my thesis supervisor who challenged me to narrow my list of around 15 topics down to my Top 3. While I will be sharing my Top 3 at the end of this post, I will announce my thesis project topic towards the end of December in preparation for the beginning portion of my research in January. I’m super excited about the topic that I have chosen, though, and I look forward to sharing it with you! So without further ado, my Thesis Project Rejects.
