    The Waiting Room


    January 24, 2022. This is the waiting room at the dentist’s office. Yes, it was back in to have a small problem fixed quickly. Easy-peasy in and out. More work on the gRSShopper system today, setting up server_test so it can set up a database on the fly. Looks good.…

    My Bucket isn’t Bottomless Anymore


    This assignment asks if we ever made a mental bucket list of things we ever seriously or jokingly wanted to do.  Heck, I live by lists.  Lists for the grocery store, lists for what to do tomorrow, tonight, this month, next month, for you, for me, for the dog.  Wait–I …

    Story Analysis


    The story that I chose to analyze is the show Arrested Development (but only seasons 1 through 3).

    The “I link, therefore I am” text talked about the idea of linear storytelling. This show does a really good job of making several different stories all connect to become linear. Each …

    Fear, No. PTS, Yes.


    I say “Fear, No” because I am not a fearful person. To me, fear has little use except to cripple and stop you in your tracks. When I saw the assignment “Facing Your Fears” then asking me to describe my biggest fear and what it might think of me, then …

    Weekly Summary #1


    One thing that I learned this week is to not procrastinate in this class and that if you approach the work every day in intervals, it is much easier to manage! One more challenging thing I didn’t expect was being organized throughout this class because of all the different links …

    What do you want to get out of this class?


    One of the main reasons I decided to take this course was because I am interested in going to a field involving digital studies. The digital world has always been something that is evolving, fast pasted, and extremely helpful. I am excited to learn many different things about digital storytelling …

    Emotional Lyrics


    I saw this assignment and immediately jumped on it. When I make playlists on Spotify I always make them to match a feeling or vibe I feel. I have playlists perfect for that sunny day on the beach that is just full of happy upbeat songs. I have a playlist …

    Cordi Girl


    Sweet Cordelia,

    First of all, I don’t know why you waited this long to tell me you could understand what I was saying because I gave you the benefit of the doubt when you wouldn’t listen to me. Turns out you just do a pretty great job of ignoring me. …

    The Power of Prophecy


    Most names have some kind of meaning. For example, Robert means bright fame. It makes you wonder if Bob Ross’s parents were somehow aware of his future when looking at his name’s meaning. Because this one name out of millions foretold this man’s future, I have decided all names have …

    Movie Review: Lady Bird (2017)


    Writing Assignment: 3 and 1/2 stars ***

    When I first watched Lady Bird, I knew it would be my one of favorite movies. This is one of the few movies that I feel unbelievably seen in. The tumultuous relationship between Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson and her mother throughout the movie …

    Bob Ross


    From the beginning of the episode “Barn in Snow Oval,” I noticed that Ross’s voice and aura throughout his painting experience were very calming. While he was painting, Ross appeared to be stress-free, which indeed demonstrated how art could impact the world in such a positive way. What intrigued me …

    Words For the Meal, Photo the Aftermath


    It’s a black plastic base, rectangle-shaped with a clear lid that lets me see the prize inside. Ten pieces of sushi, circular, and lined up in pairs. The last two in the lines are the end pieces and thin slices of carrots rise out of them like orange vines. The …

    Folk(s with) Tails: What is Normal Anyway?


    All baby capybaras derive effervescent flight gifts. However, ill-meaning jackalopes kick sneakily low-riding minotaurs, never offer pardons, quite regretting silly trifles. Usually, vexations with xeruses yodel ‘zap’.

    For context,

    Capybaras a jackalope statue of a minotaurs a xeruses

    “Create a story that uses words that begin with the letters of …

    To My Mom


    Writing Assignment: 4 stars ****

    Dear Mom,

    As I have gotten older I have finally understood just how much you have done for me. It’s easy as a kid to take everything you do as a mom for granted, and sometimes now I still do that. I realize now how …

    Picture This


    I normally hate taking pictures. I love having pictures of different moments in my life, but I rarely actually take pictures. So many people take pictures only for social media, which there is nothing wrong with, but I have just never really been interested in that. I care more about …

    Artistic Licence, Better Late Than Never


    I didn’t quite transcribe this by Friday, I’m not a huge fan of WordPress.

    I don’t consider myself artistic in the commonly accepted definition of the word. However, I strongly believe that art is not something that can be defined with words. Art is whatever one finds beauty in, even …

    Dim Sum Dreaming GIF from giphy

    If you have seen my bucket list post, Farewell Cruel World!, you may have noticed that I want to visit Australia before I die. You also already know I want to go because when I was younger, I wanted to live there. However, …

    What is in a story?


    Outline for A Long Story:

    When thinking about how to develop an idea for a story, there are many ideas that come to mind. I have been reflecting on some of the greatest short stories of all time like The Story of an Hour, The Yellow Wallpaper, and A Good …
