I hope you had a lovely week, now that you realise you don’t have to smile at people, with those masks on.
I’ve been a little tied up the past few days and hence, inconsistent in posting on my daily blog
. It made me have the novel realisation— Writing every day is hard.
But upon squinting harder I can see that it is even more difficult to write every day without that sort of an accountability. That’s funny.
I am not sure how I feel to find out, that I care more about my public perception than I care about writing itself. Apparently, writing every day is the bare minimum, if one wants to publish a novel, a play, a film or a hit TV show… who would’ve thunk.
Which brings me to my recommendation this week. After having heard about it for the longest time and not watching it because everyone referenced to it, I decided to watch the hit TV show: The Office.
I absolutely love British humour because of how dry, bleak and self-deprecating it can be. So I decided to watch the original version, The Office (UK). And boy, is it funny!
The show “follows the day-to-day lives of office employees in a fictional paper company”. It is created, written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. The comedic genius of Ricky Gervais is revealed not only in his writing the show but also in his portrayal of its principle character, David Brent.
I have only ever worked in an office once, and it is surprising how accurately the show captures characters you find at a workplace.
Just three seasons long, The Office (UK) is hilarious, even after two decades.
I highly recommend it.
Have a fantastic Sunday!
