Free Transform

  Transformation Surprisingly, this has turned out to be one of my favorite pieces, despite minimal thinking or expectations going in. I made it for an English project so I wouldn’t have to write, and I like the ability to add in all these aspects for a text I hardly understood. There’s lots of symbolism…

Not the OG, but still good

Original The second generation of Skins is great, but I worry it’s only relevant because it is being compared relative to the other generations. I loved the third (this is sadly not a general consensus), but I struggle with going back and rewatching the show. Now, I’m stuck on season 2, so I’ve switched to…

Nothing is impossible!

Optimism is a little hard to come by these days, but I’ll deal with it. We always bounce back, I guess.

It’s almost as if something’s come alive

The second season of Mr. Robot has lived up to all expectations, even surpassing them. I can’t remember some of the last season, but with twitter and IMDB, I’m catching up. The first episode of the season was filled with very ominous, just-perfectly vague quotes that could be the new tagline. Next episode comes out…

and together, we catch killers

Castle is one of those shows that you can pick up right where you left off, or even jump around and ditch watching in chronological order. It has an A+ cast, headlined by Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion, that welcomes newcomers warmly while containing a great dynamic. Even when relationships ensue (and ultimately fall apart), you…

adulthood breaking your bones

I’m rewatching Skins, starting from Generation 1, and it’s just as iconic as ever. It’s funny to see everyone at their youngest, and know where they’ll end up in just a few episodes. Of all the Redux episodes, I’ve seen Cassie’s the most times. To see her dealing with her eating disorder and love interest,…

claim to fame

I have no idea what Taylor Swift is doing. This is coming from someone who’s been to 2 of her concerts, owns several t-shirts with her face on them, has countless calendars saved in her basement, and knows the words to every single of her songs. It’s kind of disorienting to wake up and see some…

a new hope!

Sometimes life is going well for a few days, but then Brexit happens or you remember about this year’s election, and you’re thrown off. Politics has gotten so polarizing that I have fallen behind on news coverage and just read a bunch of young adult novels instead. Or start a new show (True Blood). And whether you’re…

Stage fright

I’m going to a concert tonight, and I’m, per usual, nervous. I’m not sure why I’m like this, because I’m never as excited for the actual singing as I’d like to be. This is such a weird problem, and I wonder if this happens to anyone else. But as I’m hyping myself up for the…

it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

I’d hardly call myself a fan of poetry- the closest I can get to that length of fiction is short stories, and even those I am particular about. That being said, I appreciate it much more when I receive an in-depth analysis or if I know it’s important to someone. I just remember Taylor Swift using…

On the need to concentrate

As the school year wraps up, it has become clearer and clearer that I need to work more efficiently. Though many periods are free because APs are over, I still have 5 units to relearn in 2 classes, and projects to turn in for 2 other classes. Graphic design has never been so time-consuming that…

an image of what is remembered forever

In the midst of APs (thank god I’m done with mine), I have put a lot to the side- graphic design, cleaning, relationships, and most interests. I deleted apps and sat in random rooms alone to cram, and here I am (mildly) alive. I also forgot Audrey Hepburn’s birthday, which is quite possibly the worst…
