I’m not even sure that, a) Blogtober is even a real thing or b) I can deal with the cutesiness of the word ‘Blogtober’ (too close to the vomit-worthy ‘Vlogging’ for my taste) but.

The final installment in our Films about How Fucking Hard It Is to be an Adult series and this is a good one to go out on, I feel. It’s pretty topical too when you consider all the Repeal the 8th stuff going on right now (it’s obviously been ongoing). I’ve seen this before a […]
