Today’s the last match up of round one before we head into the semi-finals and beyond.
With half of the first round complete, we only have two matchups left before the semi-finals.
This round brings together two new bracket competitors that wound up being very familiar. Will this closely seeded match up give us the first upset of the tournament?
This first match takes place between two contenders that I hadn’t tried before this tournament: one seeded at the very top by my readers and one brand I didn’t even know existed until this month. Let’s get this party started.
No one asks to live through strange times. It just happens. You live your life. It becomes your new normal. I’m just trying to document how that happens.
Eight bubbles enter. Only one can win. Will you choose the best bubbles?
I’ve had to cut this year’s bracket in half from 16 to 8. Instead of arranging each corner of the bracket based on flavor profiles, I’m asking you to help me seed the eight contenders.
We’re just over a month into a new year but I feel like I’m still wrapping up 2019.
This list is heavily based on the month I spent in the city as a poor student studying abroad in the summer of 2014. Lisbon has changed in the more than five years since then, so I wouldn’t call this the most up to date or complete travel guide. Call it an incomplete work in constant progress instead.
Maybe I’m still coping with post-English major burnout, or just burnout in general, but 2019 is the year I finished reading the fewest books in my life.
