Avengers Endgame brought tears to my eyes

I enjoyed Avengers Endgame. In fact, I liked it so much that I’m not going to address the part that made me roll my eyes (that everybody in my twitter feed LOVED). I don’t feel that it’s worth nitpicking this, the first and only culmination of a ten year cinematic arc. To be able to bring that much storytelling to a satisfying conclusion is nothing short of incredible.

Blaugust tip: schedule your posts

I was the kind of person who thought “eh, I’ll just get to it when I’ve got some spare time”, but ultimately that was not the best approach.

Blaugust tip: make a topic list

Something I noticed when I first started both my blog and my podcast is that I was overflowing with topic ideas. I had so many ideas that I thought I’d never run out. Even so, I decided write some of them down in case I ever reached a point when the ideas were not so plentiful.
