    That Bucket List Though!


    This writing assignment will be challenging me to create a bucket list of at least 5 things I’d like to do in my life! To relate this to our course theme of the 80s, however, I will be revising this assignment slightly. Instead of a bucket list for things I …

    This week has thus far been a lot of fun. Summer break was MUCH needed, and I had the opportunity to do a lot of fun, new things. However, I’ll admit I was getting a little stir-crazy, and was honestly happy and excited to have classes start up again.

    “What do the 80s mean to today?”


    This is equally a simple question, and yet a difficult one to answer. I have no doubt that you could walk into a crowd, ask everyone you meet this very question, and you would end up with a variety of different answers. Perhaps for most of us in this class, …
