    Go Vote!


    Okay, so for this visual assignment I had to choose an image and add text in some way which read “Go Vote” but then I remixed it and I was told to contradict myself. At first I was confused, but then I got it. I created an ad to go …

    My Life


    For this writing assignment, I was instructed to write about where I see myself in ten years, whether a letter or goal list, but when I remixed this assignment, I was told to add a backstory, so what I thought would be the best idea was to tell you a …

    Riza McHale’s Life


    For this assignment, we were required to create a 2 to 3 minute documentary based on someone important. I took this opportunity to expand on my western character, Riza. As someone who loves to create stories, I found it fascinating to create a documentary around a character I created.

    Thoughts during a Meal


    The sticky grease underneath my finger nails, the smell of Ringo sitting next to me, begging for food, and the thought of Johnny keeps me from eating. How could he have died? Why did he have to go, yet, who did this? I look down and continue to eat as …
