Okay, maybe I’m not so uncool as I am incapable of having any chill. And yet, here I am, seduced by the effortless Cool Girl aesthetic that is Glossier.
On Wednesday night, I was working on a heartfelt and wholesome post about being a part of two programs that are dear to my heart and on the edge of qualifying.
Then I got pissed off about a stupid quidsecret and wrote this instead.
In typical Barcelos fashion, I can pump out the shameless materialism and recaps of old posts just fine. But the hard-hitting stuff? Not so easy to get that done to my standards.
However, because I know myself, I’ve been banking evergreen content for these occasions. This time around, you get to learn a little more about me from the person who Knows Barcelos best.
Yes, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I feel like I’m forever struggling with balancing writing for work versus writing for me. But that’s a blog post for later.
For now, if you’ve missed me pontificating about quidditch, fear not! Alejo Enriquez of How to Play Quidditch invited me to join him and Harry Greenhouse for a podcast.
Alejo’s site is a cool resource for learning about the games, but the podcast is the real gem. He’s been looking for people who are knowledgeable about aspects of quidditch and bringing them on for podcasts. This pod’s topic was one close to my heart: college quidditch and how we as community players can help foster it. Give it a listen here.
Ugh, I am still recovering from last night’s four-hour city council meeting. Nothing like settling in for the long haul after you see that the one thing you’re covering is the last on a long agenda.
But that’s a story for next week. This week: I was on the front page!
Scene: Argonauts Thursday Night Practice
MANAGER Barcelos, chatting with CHASER COACH Oelze, mentions the Year in Review that ROOKIE Ardin Lo wrote about his college squad, Cal Quidditch.
ROOKIE: Hey Liz, can you share it on Barcelos Knows?
MANAGER: Are you kidding? You wrote about me as a player. That’s never happened before. Of course I will.
ROOKIE: Yes! We finally made it.
