    The man in the mirror


    This assignment requires you to look in the mirror and give an accurate and detailed description of yourself. My first observation was “wow I need to get some more sleep.” I have the beginnings of bags starting to form under my eyes which is definitely from lack of sleep, but …

    Forward momentum


    For the majority of my posts I like to hover around that 80’s theme. For this assignment I thought to share this story because it is hilarious. Towards the end of 6th grade my parents finally felt comfortable leaving me around the house when they had other matters to attend …

    War what is it good for


    A good story in my eyes is one that engages me beyond listening, watching, or reading. Typically when I’m watching a great movie I end up becoming absorbed into trance like state that leaves me confused on my whereabouts when the credits start rolling. Usually for a good book I’ll …

    Another day


    Nothing to me is more relaxing than observing some of natures gifts to the world. As a child me and my neighborhood friends used to film almost everything around us. At that time I had no appreciation of the outside world that surrounded me and because this a lot of …

    Weekly Summary


    This week for me was all over the place. I was switching out of a few classes just trying to free up a time slot to where I could take a course I needed, which eventually had a spot open up thank god. Besides that I haven’t had too much …

    What do the 80’s mean today?


    For me the 80’s symbolize a strange in between period in American culture that is overlooked. Out of a all the questionable products from the 80’s like big hair bands and crack, I believe that the golden age of film production started in this era. Classics like: Back To The …
