    Longing in the lyrics


    “Choose an emotion (happy, sad, excited, hyper, sleepy, suprised, inspired, ect..) and then choose three songs that elect that emotion. Name emotion, the song, and why it makes you feel that way. This can be done in three separate tweets to allow for character count. Have fun with this!”

    A gentle breeze blows in the distance.


    “People often forget about how beautiful the world is, the way the treese blow in the wind, how flowers bloom in the spring and how amazing the grass feels on our feet. We come from a generation where the only beauty we actually see is over an electronic. Go outside …

    How Very


    “Create a voice mail message for a character in a film or tv show. Use samples, impressions, and/or music to create your message. “

    The Colors Within


    For one of my assignments I created a movie barcode. Keeping with the theme of the 80’s (but making it my own a little bit) I made one with screenshots from Bladerunner 2049. It may be obvious that this is my favorite movie- but I can’t get over how beautiful …

    80’s pop culture thoughts


    “What do the 80s mean to today?” is a difficult question for someone who can only know the 80’s through movies music and reminents of a past they didn’t live through. Personally, my parents, like many others I’m sure, were big “80’s people” and played 80’s music through my youth. …
