DAMMIT HYDRA

Dammit HYDRA is exactly how I feel about job hunting. I spent about 25 years in school and will have two MAs at the end of July, but as of right now, most jobs require said MAs to actually interview. Most of the emails are like this:

Dear Ms. Jessica [Last Name Redacted]

Thank you for your application. Unfortunately, we are not accepting canadiates without Master’s of Art degrees. Please reapply when you receive yours and we can include you in the process. 

Warm Regards,

[Organization Hiring Manager’s Name Redacted]

So, the nice thing is they are still willing to include me in the process, but they’ll hire before my degrees are awarded. Dammit HYDRA. In the meantime, I’ll be working a gig, which is nice.

I’ve started to work on the critical acclaim of the Wonder Woman movie for the website Be A Heroine! and that’s coming along somewhat. I hope to finish it by today if possible.

As soon as that’s finished, I’ll start my research for Black Canary, Huntress, Captain Marvel, and Storm so I can post them in late Fall. A lot of research goes into this. About three months worth to be precise, which means they’ll be posted as soon as I move some stuff on the website around, add new pages, get the artwork, and other minor things.

In the meantime, I’ll be starting my gig Thursday and I’m really excited. I’m packing A LOT of sunscreen, my extra battery pack, and wearing my FitBit. Lots of walking will happen. It’s going to be great.

 

CirclePlus and Superheroines

I’ve been having a hard time trying to find a theme for the new iteration of CirclePlus. I’ve been combing through and I found one, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the price to actually get it.

I want to try it to see if I can get it to work before I buy it, but it doesn’t seem to have an option for that. Which is stupid. I’m hoping to find a theme by the end of the week so I don’t have to worry about it and I can spend my days working on it bit by bit. So far it’s slow going.

I would like to thank everyone who made CirclePlus possible in the first place: Holly, my co-president, the ladies that contribute to CirclePlus expecting nothing in return but a platform for their content, and the fans who go to the website and find new content weekly to enrich their lives while they listen to women on the Internet. Kudos.

Importantly, I hope to have CirclePlus completely revamped by July 15th. That’s the goal and I hope I can stick to it.

In other news, this week I’ll be sharing my insights into my capstone and I’ll also be gearing up to research the next four ladies going on Be a Heroine! because I want to continue this project as an effort to explain why female superheroines and anti-heroes are so important to people. The next four on the docket are: Black Canary and Huntress (of Birds of Prey), Captain Marvel (which will be added to when the movie comes out), and Storm (of X-Men fame).

Speaking of movies coming out, I left the Wonder Woman media page with a bit of a set up for the reviews that came out of the movie that dropped earlier this month. I hope to be adding to that as well to explain how having a female-led superhero movie finally has gotten the credit it deserves. In addition, I’ll put a review or two in there so you can see how Wonder Woman has changed the industry for female superheroes.

And how it’s about damn time.
