    Nicholas Sparks did it again


    I’ve probably spent hours thinking of a story that means something to me, and my mind is literally blank. I ended up going on Netflix and seeing what movie I watch the most is (that has to mean something to me), I ended up picking the movie/book Safe Haven. I …

    Thank you, and I love you


    Dear Mom,

    You’ve taught me everything. I don’t really think I’ve appreciated you enough. As I’m getting older, I’m realizing everything you’ve done for me, and I don’t think I could ever repay you. You’ve taught me how to be independent, and you’ve also taught me how to become …

    A whole new world


    I watch A LOT of movies, but when I saw this assignment there was one movie that came to mind. Aladdin, but not just the original Aladdin – the 2019 live action Aladdin.

    I’d have to give the movie a solid 4 out of 5 stars (I never rate things …

    I’m never good enough…


    There you go again. Out the front door. Not even a short glance to look at me. It’s 20 degrees outside today, but you would rather brave the cold instead of use me.

    Am I not as good as the other guy?

    Is it because I don’t cost as much? …

    View From The Asylum

    AnimatedGIF Assignment #1

    “Van Gogh painted the view from his east-facing window in the asylum 21 times.”


    I chose to animate The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh into a gif. I didn’t think I was going to put literal stars in the sky, until I began reading more …

    Weekly Summary 1


    I learned A LOT this week and it was much harder than I expected. It consisted of some very late nights, and small breakdowns for things like my font styles weren’t working, or when my computer decided to start sounding like an airplane getting ready for takeoff, then shutting …

    Unlike most people, I don’t have any issues when it comes to setting goals. My issue is actually achieving them. My goal for the new semester was to wake up at the butt crack of dawn so I’d feel “productive.” Well, the only thing I’m achieving that early in the …

    The Spectacular Waterfall

    “In your world, you decide.”

    He was focusing on the form, shape, and darkness of the cliff along the waterfall. And when he said that, it brought to light that just because he is putting “big cliffs, rocks, and little happy things,” doesn’t mean you have to. In your world …
