    Week In Review | Would I Do It Again?

        Heck yes I would. This semester was a great test in creativity, time management, and listening to myself.  Am I exhausted?  Yes.  Did I fail in some aspects? Yes.  Did I succeed in others? Resoundingly, YES. I learned so many things I probably wouldn’t have ever tried on my own.  I was stretched ...

    FINAL Web Story Part 3 | Listening to the Love

    Week In Review | It’s All Mashed-Up

    These two weeks have been interesting. Not necessarily my favorite, but I made the best of it, and tweaked assignments and ideas to my liking.  Hey, at least I made it out alive. Re-mix makes me think of techno, house music, and an old Club DJ boyfriend I had a hundred and 37 years ago.  ...

    Recycled Media

    Using discarded media, I made this little nugget. It is the story of a simple, fun day in the sun, shared between two people.     I enjoyed this exercise.  What is the saying?  “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

    I Really Used to Love Popcorn

    But Mozilla Popcorn, doesn’t taste anything like I remember.   Popcorn is supposed to be light, fluffy and easy to eat.  This was heavy, clunky, and hard to digest.    It isn’t awful, just didn’t make the process any fun.  The end result is -eh. at best.
