Hello! My name is Adrian Manuel. I studied English and Creative Writing at Northern Arizona University (my parents are still recovering). I am currently working as a freelance writer and I manage this blog in between projects (again, still recovering).
“Adrian Vs. The World” began in the summer of 2011. I was always enamored with films and found that I had a lot to say about them. Everyone else, however, never shared my compulsion. I was often told that I was too critical of movies, so I was mistaken for someone who wasn’t passionate about them. But it’s the opposite that’s true. A blog seemed like the best way to unwind my opinions both honestly and constructively despite what others may say, hence the name “Adrian Vs. The World.”
This isn’t strictly an entertainment blog. Sometimes I write about writing (or not writing). Sometimes I write about life, love, and relationships (yawn, am I right?). I write about anything that I feel exceptionally passionate about. The sky’s the limit – my only limit being the amount of caffeine I can consume in a day (my PR is 6 cups, and that was not a fun day). Above all, I seek to entertain and inform. It is a privilege to be entertained and informed by me. I said so myself.
