Hello there, stranger! My name is Emily! I like to dabble in writing here at Infobarrel. I write about things that interest me. While I write full-time for money, this is typically where I come to write in order to have fun and make some extra money from it. In general, I enjoy writing about video games, anime, history, and the weirdest of weird things.
Wanna come have fun writing with me? You can sign up here.
Hey there again, if you like my writing, I recently took a brief foray into the world of fiction with my book, The Guild. It is about an organization of assassins (a Guild, if you will) that do absolutely horrible things to each other and those in a world that increasingly hates them. It's probably terrible, but that could just be my trademark low self-esteem talking. I actually really had a lot of fun writing it. You know, injecting snark, breaking tropes, realizing I was kind of horrible to my female characters, that sort of thing.
You like my anime articles? As a fan for over 15 years, I've been around the ol' otaku block a few times. Come visit me on my site, Recommend Me Anime, to watch me recommend good shows to watch next and trash-talk your favorite characters.

6 Make-Ahead Lunches That Aren't Pretentious Health Food

If you are like me, you make someone in your life (or even yourself!) lunches every week that they can take to work or school. However, while you may have a lot of acceptable recipes in your repertoire, the same old thing gets exactly that, old. Suddenly, the will to try something new strikes you and you flock to Google and it is nothing but jar salads, quinoa paired with everything and everything, or meals that would be impossible to actually make ahead for a week like you want to.

This is H. Jon Benjamin. While it is unlikely you will recognize him by his average-looking mug, complete with receding hair line and grey-dabbled beard, if you heard his voice even in the din of a busy coffee shop, your mind would be overcome with a torrent of nostalgia. For near 20 years, this average-looking man has built his fame on the back of his sultry baritone voice and that has that just perfect amount of slightly-annoyed irritation in its tone.

9 Classic Horror Movies that All Serious Horror Fans Should See

You may be well versed in conjuring, human centipedes, and a whole variety of saws, but do you think you can really call yourself a horror fan if you have never seen at least one movie with Freddy or Jason terrorizing a group of teens? No, you can't, because classic horror movies, no matter how much they show their age, they set the groundwork for future movies in the horror genres. The themes, the jump scares, the possessions, they have all be done before. Modern horror is just about how to do them better.

6 Strange Dating Sims You Didn't Know You Needed in Your Life

You can passably play League of Legends, you can throw down in Call of Duty with the best of them, you may even find the time to enjoy a nice Indie game every now and then - but you also find sweet, heart-throbbing pleasure in a dating sim.

Perhaps you are compelled by them by the same God complex that causes you to lose literal days in games like The Sims, or maybe you just need to feed your inner amorous alligators. Regardless, a good dating sim can satisfy an itch. Yet, the same "boy meets harem" scenario can wear after a time. Fortunately, the home of dating sims, Japan, is such a wonderfully weird place that its developers and those abroad inspired by them have made some awesomely weird ones to keep the genre fresh.

Lessons from Top Chef That Made Me A Better Writer

I'm a binge-watcher, and I am not ashamed to admit it. To me, writing seven hours a day in complete silence is my own personal hell. I like to keep something on while I'm working just so I can take breaks and kind of zone out to think about things. In terms of what show, the longer the series, the better for binge-watchers like me. However, it is also crucial that the show doesn't demand engagement like Pretty Little Liars where you constantly have to be able to read those darn text messages. What better genre for long, only somewhat engaging shows than reality TV? However, instead of turning on the Real Housewives of Wherever, I enjoy competitive cooking shows because, you guessed it, I like to cook.
