the worlds a cancer

I remember passing shop windows with my mother and asking why people didn't just kick them in. She explained that there were unspoken rules of social behaviour, and that's the way we coexist as people. I felt instantly confined by the notion that we are born into a world where everything was mapped out by those before us.

I re-watch the video from John on Perspective often. I think I will re-watch Harvey today also.... And a book based on the feelings of his personal experience would be amazingly beautiful! (wink, wink)

I'm not sure what is going on in my life, how can I be so happy and miserable at the same time? I mean, new experiences and overcoming roadblocks is amazing and bring me such pride and joy. However, I waste so much time in my…

Clones are evil and other nonsense

Today's big undertaking was trying to create a video with a split screen image, essentially cloning myself. After many fails at filming, including lighting and audio, I finally captured enough footage to work from this morning. After nearly 8 hours of editing, let's remember I only started using…

Lesson #infinity and 1: if you're going to attempt split screen-ensure perfect lighting

Today, I attempted to film a video in which I edit two videos into a split screen, also know as a clone, to create the perception of two characters of myself. I, however, have failed horribly and will need to re-shoot all the video tomorrow AND try to edit it by the end of the day to meet my deadline.

The lighting and alignment is completely off. It wasn't convincing in the slightest as a split screen. Instead, it looked like a video on top of a video.

BUT,…

Crowdfunding Science!

Hey Nerdfighters! I'm working on a project to raise funds to do research into the role of viruses in sediments and soils. You can check that project out here

A question we've been getting a lot since launching this project: Why crowdsourcing? We actually answered some of this for articles that were just published by the Vassar College student newspaper Miscellany…

Feelings Transcend Time: Virtual Internship Series (pt 1)

Welcome to my self-assigned and designed internship project: part serious self discovery, part ridiculous proof of failure. In any case, I am glad your here to witness history unfold. Side note: I didn't promise you'd learn important historical facts to wow your friends at the pub's trivia night, just that history is happening. And it is happening now.

Unemployment affects people in a multitude of ways. To prevent cycles of internalized self-pity, I am choosing to think outwardly by…

Learning is process

I have written, filmed, and edited a lot this week. I have also put together a lot of new ideas to come. Its been an overwhelming but motivating experience to finally post my creations. I have been disappointed with the lack of support from the people I know but I have one friend (whose voice you can hear in the endslate) who has been really supportive. I took on the self-designed internship to learn a new skill and with each new film/edit session, I learn something new. I think it will be…

School Corporations and Boyfriends Need To Prioritize Better

You know that moment when you have your whole summer planned-all your ducks in a row- and someone decides to tell you that he'smgoing away for 3/4 of our already short summer? Well, I do, and, lemme tell you right now-it sucks. Plus, those BUTTHEADS who think it's oh-so-oh-well to cut into marching band practice can shove it because now we have to do 10 hours instead of 8 for the last weeks of July, the same weeks I have 4 extra hours of gym summer school so I can take band freshman year.…

Turning points, confidence, and just doing it

First, do you have a youtube channel? If so, comment below and I will follow you!

I finally posted a video to youtube. This is my first real attempt at writing up a script, filming, and editing. While it was definitely a learning curve because I had no prior experience with any of these skills, it was a proud moment at 2am when I felt I was…

I have a blog!

I didn't even know this was a thing on the ning until I saw someone else's blog.  I used to have a blog back in the dinosaur age of the internet, when role players ran free and wild and facebook hadn't been born yet.  I had more to say back then, or at least more to say that couldn't be put into some sort of order.  I rambled a lot.  Like now.

So what do I start off with?  Okay, I'm a writer, first and foremost.  A self-publishing author, which, I know, will immediately make…

Doodle FOr NF Month

As some people may know, May is Doodle for NF month. It's really simple to participate in this project, as all you have to do is submit a doodle. It can be anything- something you draw in a boring lecture, and it doesn't have to be about anything in particular. But Doodle for NF is really important to me because my brother has NF (Neurofibromatosis) and it raises awareness for this genetic mutation.

TO SUBMIT…

Happy birthday Hank!!

I haven't been on here in a while, and I guess I thought I'd just come on here and post a quick happy birthday wish for Hank. That's about it. Yep.

PUBLISHED MY NOVEL(LA)!!!

Hello! So, I just published my novella thingy called Every Crooked Kingdom on the Kindle Store on Amazon. Should be available for purchase within the next day...two at the most. I would really love to get some Nerdfighter support with this. I'm hoping that forming a decent online following will help in future physical publication much later on down the road, within the next ten years, I hope. 

Anyway, the book is only $3.99, which I hope isn't too bad for most…

The story I'm writing :3

The time of our lives is coming where will never be exactly the same. The time of our lives is coming where will we be graduating high school. Time is unstoppable; we cannot control it. Some of us will be in college, some on the street, and some looking for someone to care for and love them. We are all seniors in this story of anxiety, passion, and acknowledging strengths.

We sighed buying our…

Thoughts

One day, we won't be remembered. But it's amazing how today, we mean a lot for some people and how much we matter to their lives. Right here on the present we have connections that we can have for as long as we want to and for as long as being alive will let us. We really should be grateful for our family and friends who see us as important. Oblivion shouldn't be something to be scared at, because right now, we matter. You matter, and that's what's important.
