Taking it easy following my endoscopy on Monday, this week introduced the first installment of Tune-In Tuesdays and continued with a second installment of What in the World Wednesdays, as well as a three-week recap of the United States’ partial government shutdown.

Weekly Recap

On Monday, I released an article following my long-awaited Upper Endoscopy procedure. Luckily, I’m not rotting from the Upper Gastrointestinal Tract out.

As for the endoscopy itself, it couldn’t have gone any better. If you are struggling with heartburn, reflux, or chronic pain in the right half of your upper abdomen, I highly advise getting the 5-20 minute test over with. After all, it may just save your life.

Tune-In Tuesdays were introduced the following day, kicking the series off with an essay on the Kweku Collins concert I was delighted to attend in Nov. of 2018.

This installment of What in the World Wednesdays was whacky, to say the least… I’m not sure I will ever overcome the chilling, unwavering eye contact of Roberto Daniel Arroyo, who was caught on camera licking a doorknob of a house in Salinas, CA.

Friday unfortunately marked the 21st day of the partial U.S. government shutdown, officially giving it the title of Longest Government Shutdown in U.S. History. At this rate, you can expect a one month recap on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Moments ago, I released my review of the half-decent but inevitably cliche psychological thriller Escape Room.

Going Forward

Going forward, you can expect another installment of both Tune-In Tuesdays and What in the World Wednesdays, among other posts. A fourth-week recap of the government shutdown will be withheld in lieu of a one month recap, scheduled for Jan. 22.

This upcoming Tune-In Tuesdays will center around chill-hop artist XtaSeay and a behind the scenes look at his single Chipped Tea Cups, released earlier this week to iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify, as well as other platforms.

The first issue of The Burgundy Zine remains scheduled for it’s digital-release on Jan. 28. Although the first issue is in the process of being finalized, I have already began gathering content for the February issue, which will revolve around the theme of both romantic and creative passions.

Of course, blog-post submissions are always welcomed.

Thanks for reading and be sure to tune in this week for Tune-In Tuesdays #2, What in the World Wednesdays #3, and more.
