    10 things I HATE about you


    For my assignments this week, I have already completed a writing assignment so I decided to pick an assignment from the visual assignments. As someone who sends gifs in the middle of texting to express my reaction, I was intrigued by the “Say it Like the Peanut Butter” assignment which …

    I’m a “hughes” fan of Hughes


    My junior year of high school, my IB literature teacher did a poetry unit on Langston Hughes in honor of Black History Month. I spent those couple of months reading up on Hughes poems and I was so intrigued by the way his words painted a picture, spoke to me, …

    So much stuff!!! Why GIF so Challenging!!


    Hey everyone, for my final assignment this week, I chose to do one that covered editing a GIF. I thought this would be a relatively easy assignment, but oh no, user beware… I started this assignment by looking up how to edit animations in Gimp, which has been a helpful …

    Say It Like The Peanut Butter

    When I think “pivotal movie moment,” I instantly think of this scene from Avengers: Endgame. The build up to this moment and the helplessness followed by triumph make for an incredibly epic moment. There isn’t much more to say about it other than the …

    Best Sports Play


    I choose this assignment from the assignment bank because great sports plays are my favorite stories. I believe that sports bring people together and are where some people create lasting, lifelong memories. The play I chose was from the 2022 NCAA Division 1 National Championship game between Northwestern and Liberty. …

    Mystery survival

    The prompt for this writing assignment.

    I roll over on the cold, flattened grass. My heart is beating out of my chest. I stare up into the sky, not looking around whatsoever, focused in on an incredibly rectangular cloud. There were distinct plains, running perpendicular and parallel to …

    Is the semester over yet?


    This week took a lot out of me. It wasn’t necessarily the workload, it was finding my creative side. Last week I wrote in my Goals blog post, that I wanted to not wait until the last minute to do assignments – I must say, I didn’t wait until the …

    Just Riding the Wave


    I’ve always considered myself to be quite creative, with the capacity to take on challenges in interesting and uncommon ways. I’ve never really struggled to create, but I have struggled to put a style to my work. Whether it’s a drawing, a song, a short story, a problem, etcetera, I’ve …

    Drops of Jupiter (literally)


    This assignment caught my eye for many reasons. I love photography in general and I really liked the idea of being able to turn some form of art into another new form of art that could incorporate different mediums of art. Over this past year Train’s “Drops of Jupiter” album …

    What Kind of Artist Am I?
