    I named this the weakest week because I didn’t finish one of my assignments and rushed a little towards the end.

I was looking at red images for my last assignment including roses, barns, and apples because I think red is a powerful color. That made me think about apples and agriculture, specifically bushes. Then I thought, would …

    Final Project Idea

    I have a few general notions. I don’t think it should be anything that’s a step-by step procedure such as a recipe or manual. I think it should be something that that audience needs to be persuaded to perform or chose one option over another, more or …
