process #5

For this week’s Process Post, I was supposed to change a design aspect of my site commented on by my peer. However, as I’m still waiting on that Peer Review, I’ll be focusing on the idea of fake news. This post stems from an activity we partook in during last weeks lecture, in which we […]

from 25 cents to 24 dollars

The boy squealed for joy. His full cheeks pulled to the side revealing small teeth, the bottom were two missing. Gripped in his delicate hands sat a shiny quarter. The boy couldn’t believe his eyes, in his five long years he hadn’t seen that much money. What could he possibly buy with this? He would have to […]

peer review #2

Without good design, a website could easily lose its audience. In this second Peer Review, we’ve been asked to assess the look of another’s blog. With that in mind, we’ll be looking at Kimberly, a second year student who lived a large amount of her life in Hong Kong. Kimberly’s blog in general has a […]

characters and what-not

Now, this isn’t my typical type of post. However with the addition of my Discussion Board, I felt I may as well share a piece related to this weeks topic – characters. For myself, my character building isn’t well established. I write out basic traits, what their hair colour, eye colour, and defining features are, […]

process #4

Having and providing for an audience is critical when publishing yourself online. Upon thinking about what type of blog mine is – focused on writing, with inspiration stemming from anything – I imagine my audience to be those who also enjoy writing and reading as much as I do. With these interests in mind, I […]

“it’s just a habit”

I developed a habit when I was young, and like most children, it had to do with sucking my fingers. Although, it wasn’t the typical thumb-sucking that many fall into, I sucked on my index and middle finger. It wasn’t until I somehow gave myself an infection in my middle finger that caused me to […]

process #3

When it comes to design, consistency is key. This was something I realized I wasn’t always paying attention too, specifically with the title of my posts. Some were capitalized, while others were purposely lowercase. However with my addition of capital letters, I’m sure it appeared those lowercase aspects looked accidental. (They were not). Thankfully, I […]

burgandy snow

She always took this bus home, and the scenery rarely changed. The bus still continued down the winding road, safely covered by the towering trees. It was usually bleak both on and off the bus when she traveled home, as it was well into the evening. Around eight o’clock. Many had already eaten their meals, […]

peer review #1

Beginning to develop oneself on the internet can be daunting. Blogging may seem like a simple task to an audience, however, the initial set up of one’s site is a struggle. One has to ask themselves, ‘how do I want to be portrayed?’ ‘Am I willing to share everything online, or do I want to […]

process #2

This is a two part Process Post so prepare yourselves… Part One: Hello to the potential person who stumbled upon my blog. If you’re new, or you have no idea where my content lives, then you’re in the right place! The home page of my site may seem a little scattered – from my personal […]
