Here’s a peek into my movie watching habits.

Alrighty, so you’re probably wondering why this page exists, and why anyone would care what movies I watch, but when you think about it, as a freelance editor who works from home in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I’m only rarely going to meet my clients. In fact, I’ve only ever met three of them in person, but this doesn’t mean my clients don’t want to know a bit more about who I am.

This page, along with my Books Read page, is one of the ways in which I help people get a peek into my personal life without really getting too personal. That said, my life is usually 50% work, 20% sleeping, 5% leisure, and 25% driving my kids to school (ugh), so the number of movies I watch is less than I’d like. I try to bloat it by noting movies I rewatch, but I stopped keeping track of how many times I’ve seen Avengers: Infinity War after about the tenth time (ahem, this year).
