    Tools and the like for the Final Project

    But on a serious note, I am thinking of using Movie Maker like I did for the last project. I will of course be taking video of people, and I think I messed around with it enough to be able to handle moving pictures. If not,

    I …

    The Circle: A Review


    I would actually like to keep this review of The Circle as general short, sweet, simple and painless as possible, because if I do talk about it in length, it will only turn into an angry rant that would do nothing for the integrity of the book.

    So in general, …

    The Circle: A look at a Character


    There are just so many characters I want to talk about: Mae, Kalden, creepy Francis…
    But there is one I actually want to focus on for the sake of this response: Mercer.

    Mercer is the ex-boyfriend of protagonist Mae Holland. They really don’t seem to get along, and he isn’t …

    The Circle: Aphorisms



    It is one of the earlier aphorisms we see in The Circle, probably, as the story goes on, one of the least… unsettling (surprising, I know). It is here we start to get a feel of what The Circle (as a company) entails. …

    Daily Create: Lucky 7s

    It’s like time slows down and your life flashes before your eyes. All the things, big and little that brought you to where you are right now in that moment goes by in little spurts: Past jobs, past purchases, past decisions, the most recent of them being to spontaneously come…

    Daily Create: What Matters Least?

    Reality Television “Did you see what she did on last night’s episode of…” I sigh, turning on the volume to a level that could probably deafen me, but I still hear them. It’s “this celebrity did this or this one fought with that one and this one called the other…
