“There is nothing either good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.”
-Hamlet Act 2, Scene II
I’ve lived a lot of lives. I’ve been a teacher, tutor, government contractor, swim coach, writer, student, social media manager, academic advisor, and for one brief moment that I’m still not entirely sure how it happened, the leader of a youth group. I’ve had a wide array of experiences, one I chalk up to not being great at anything, but okay at a lot of things.
I started my original Bad Shakespeare Blog to chronicle my adventures in returning to school to become a teacher. That part didn’t work out so well, but my blog was interesting, looking at movies, books, my personal stories, thoughts on education, and even a story about Nicolas Cage trying to destroy the world.
Then I tried to start up this blog, one where I would talk exclusively movies through the lens of my trust feline companion, Hamlet T. Wondercat. But, while I like movies, there’s an aspect to the original blog I missed. I missed telling my journey. So that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to continue to tell my journey, on this website. I think that’s important to tell who I am. Some of that is movies, books, and television, as that is an important part of who I am.
So join Hamlet T. Wondercat and I, as we bring you into this world of mine. This world where I’m ok at a lot of things, but not really great at anything.
