    Weekly Summary-Week 12-Frustrating Again!


    I expected this week to be harder/less enjoyable than last week, since last week was an enjoyable, less frustrating week, and fun/frustrating weeks tend to switch off. I was right!

    A Spider’s Point Of View


    There’s that girl again. I suppose I shouldn’t say again, since she lives here too. She’s a strange one, and not very nice either. Just last week I saw her kill one of the gnats on the pink walls of our room. She isn’t much for sharing, or at least …

    Weekly Summary-Week 11-Much better!


    I know last week I seemed (and was) a bit frustrated. However, this week was better!

    Weekly Summary-Week 10-So Frustrating!


    Yeah, this week was hard. For me personally, this was the hardest one yet. While I finished quicker than with other weeks, I felt far less comfortable with what I had to do and had less of a fun time. Everything was so slow and tedious! It didn’t help that …

    A Hell-firey Video Essay


    So, for my video essay, I chose to look use the Lost Tapes episode “Hellhound. It is one of the four episodes that scared me as a child (along with chupacabra, skinwalker, and strigoi) that I made my character Maria interested in. I have already done posts with the “Chupacabra” …
