    by

    Can you tell I’m singing Reflection from Mulan for my Private Voice midterm Tuesday? I’m not nervous……… haha….. ha.

    Jokes aside, it’s that time of week where I reflect on everything we did in the past 7 days! Woo! I must admit, this has been my favorite week so far, …

    Blitz Part Two

    by

    I had a lot of fun doing the design blitz! I’m realizing I’m really into design and would love to learn more about it in the future. I think it’s an awesome skill to have.

    Here are my photos:

    Space– I chose this because for this Daily Create, I limited…

    Greetings From…

    by

    Here is my destination postcard! I chose New York City because it’s my favorite place ever and I miss it so much. I chose to keep the design simple and try to use what I learned about bold and skinny fonts, as well as using colors that coordinate well with …

    Calligraphy Fun

    by

    I had never thought about it, but my character, Felicity, would TOTALLY be good at calligraphy. I chose to do the assignment, Generate Cool Letters, and chose something I thought represented her well that she would actually draw her name as. This is what I came out with:

    I like …

    Flick’s Life

    by

    As I mentioned in my character introduction (Linked HERE), Felicity, or Flick, is a college student at NYU. She’s not super happy there, but is trying to make the best of it. When putting her someplace in the world, since the end hasn’t happened yet, I decided it made …

    Book Cover Remix

    by

    I chose to read the War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells for this class, and so I made it’s alternative cover. This was a little difficult because I don’t have the knowledge or resources to make it perfect, I just have to work with what is available to me …

    Let’s (Ted)Talk

    by

    The TedTalk of Paula Scher was by far my favorite TedTalk. The second she mentioned her work for the Public Theatre in New York, I was as tuned in as possible. As someone who wants to go into Arts Administration, it’s awesome to see that there are other people who …

    Weekly reflection time, woohoo! I know you’re all incredibly eager to hear about my week. This week was a breath of fresh air to me. I didn’t have time to work on anything over the course of the week because #theatrestudentlife but when I worked on it all day yesterday …

    Is Anyone Out There?

    by

    Frequency 2156 was very interesting, I must say. Even though it was just a website that is very clearly fake, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit of impending doom actually waiting around the corner for me. I’ve never seen a digital project quite like this, and love how …

    It’s Me, Alice.

    by

    Finis is a short story I read at the beginning of the semester for this class, and I loved it a lot. I particularly loved the character Alice and how she told the audience that, now that her life was ending, she wishes she would have lived more. I loved …

    Take Time to Relax

    by

    I chose to do the Relaxation Noises Assignments, and in addition to sharing my audio file with you, I wanted to share with you the sounds I chose and why they relax me:

    Rain: Everyone loves the sound of rain, it’s soothing and is the perfect background noise that isn’t …

    Hello, Audience

    by

    It’s always an incredible feeling when the things you learn about in class directly correspond with the things going on in your life at that particular moment, and that is exactly what the videos of Jad Abumrad did for me. The idea of storytelling has been at the forefront of …

    All About Me

    by

    *My character is going off the archetype “Midwife: survivalist, feminist, quick-witted, perceptive”.

    My name is Felicity Simone Cixous Jones. A mouthful, huh? You can just call me Flick, that’s what my friends call me. My mom had the grand idea of giving me names after feminists icons, but instead of …

    Getting Tougher

    by

    Yet another week has come and gone and things are getting much tougher for me. I think my biggest take-away has been that online classes aren’t necessarily better for a busy schedule as I originally thought! I am such a busy person, it’s a little insane, actually. So, I thought …

    The End is a Long Road

    So, here is my very first gif, ladies and gentlemen. I am very proud! It is a clip from The Road where we see the …

    Documentation of The End

    by

    I was walking around aimlessly, trying to find shelter, when I came across an abandoned amusement park. “Abandoned” doesn’t really mean much anymore- almost everything is abandoned now. It’s just a state of being for the world.

    Very rarely do you meet other survivors. Very rarely do you find people’s …

    In Desperate Need of Treating Myself

    by

    I found a mirror laying on the ground, half-buried in rubble. I picked it up and couldn’t believe how I looked. My whole life, I spent hundreds of dollars and countless hours on skincare, making sure my skin was as radiant and healthy as possible. I would put on makeup …

    Blitzing it Up

    by

    As someone who adores social media and blogging, the biggest thing that has held me back from expanding my blog is my lack of knowledge about photography. I am so intimidated by it, and also am a broke college student so all I have is my phone. I’m very excited …

    My submission for the My Fortune Cookie assignment:

    Short Story Reflection

    For my short stories, I chose to read There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury, and Finis by Frank L. Pollack. Here are my thoughts:

    Overall, I liked them both a lot. I think I preferred Finis because I personally identify more with stories that have humans in them …

    Alternate Ending for Finis

    by

    From the perspective of Eastwood:

    Around us were trees, buildings, light posts- all bursting into flames. The new sun was more powerful than we could have ever imagined. Most things did not make it. Most humans did not make it. I never saw the people I loved most again.
