Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
The last month has been, well, pretty wild. The world is slowly reemerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, despite many warnings from experts, the U.S. is currently in the middle of large scale protests over the deaths of George Floyd, and I have spent most of the month trying to get back on a regular sleep schedule. So yeah, different levels of importance.
On George Floyd, BLM, and the Protests
Since I am someone with a larger than average platform, I feel the need to say at least something. George Floyd’s death was a murder, and the many protests going on in major cities across the U.S. are both justified and needed if we hope to see any level of meaningful change in addressing systemic racism and oppression. I do not support the people taking advantage of these protests as a way of looking trendy or using it as an excuse to do violence.
However it should also not be understated just how much of the violence that is happening is being instigated and sustained by police officers. While I am in no way saying that all cops are to blame for this, there cannot continue to be a blanket defense of police rooted in the “just a few bad apples” mentality.
Animated Observations was always meant to be a place for me to express my ideas and create things worth reading. There is no place here for hate, and certainly no place here for defenders of George Floyd’s murderer. Period.
Recently I have had the common sense revelation that people like to be entertained. I know, right, crazy. So, in light of this, I am going to be working even harder to make that happen for readers of this blog. I just recently posted another satire piece, and I enjoy writing those.
Beyond that, however, I am still looking into what else I want to write. Potentially some more informative stuff, or reorganizing the way I do my reviews in order to make them more fun to read. The latter is probably going to happen anyway, but if anyone reading has any suggestions as to the stuff they want to see, please do let me know in the comments. To go along with this…
Getting on a Schedule
As much as I want to write more stuff, I also want to have a set schedule so that everyone know when to expect stuff from me. I haven’t decided specifically when stuff will be regularly uploaded, but their will be a minimum of two posts a week, and then occasionally some bonus stuff when I feel like writing a lot more.
A General Thank You
I feel like I do this a lot, but honestly I don’t know if I could ever do this enough. Thank you to everyone who continually reads my stuff and supports me. Even though life is hard right now, I feel incredibly grateful that I have a platform to where I can just be myself.
I hope everyone reading is still doing ok. Leave a comment below to let me know how you are feeling.
