Embarrassing Myself, A.K.A. My Final Project

amelie4Oh, I have been avoiding this for months. My friends asked to see my MA project, and yet I delayed its publication.

Not out of shame, but out of embarrassment, as my obsessive and perfectionist personality always tells me that I could have done things way better and that the writing could have been improved.

But as of today, I could not care less. I will just publish it here. If someone likes it, it will make me happy; if it is universally despised, I will be happy as well. It took me some months and endless Signature Hot Chocolates at Starbucks to finish this thing, and there is only one person who should like this, and that person is me. I still think it could have been better, there are some articles that I couldn’t fit in, but in the end I like it, with all of its imperfections.

If it is helpful in any way, my tutor said that her favourite pieces were my Editor’s Letter and the Transformers review. Sure, why not. Right after I handed it in, I realise that I had written “Jorn Gilbert” instead of “John” in one of the features, so you are welcome, world. I will just have to write “Jorn” from now on instead of admitting that I made a mistake.

Enjoy! Or not!

You might as well consider the magazine’s title (and subtitle) as a registered trademark. If you plagiarise it, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will… sue you.

  1. I’ve only just perused a bit of your project, but damn it if I don’t already love what your creative ingenuity has produced here. Are all of these articles authored by you? This is like a film geek’s companion piece. Funny how you mention watching an adult-oriented film such as “Trainspotting” when you were a wee tyke. My pops has always been a huge fan of strange and unusual cinema – he was “indie” before it was a fashionable term to throw around. I remember watching Cronenberg’s “Videodrome” as a 7-year old and going to the theater to watch Carpenter’s “The Thing” as a 6-year old. Think of it this way – you have a greater love and appreciation for the art because of your unconventional childhood. =)

    Thank you so much, that is very kind of you! It’s always good to hear people like something you worked hard on creating 🙂 And yes, I had to write all the articles 😛
