I think that one choice I made was my tone of voice. I decided to write in a “blogger-ly” fashion. There were plenty of times that what I wrote could’ve been written in a more academic tone, but considering the public audience, I decided to veer away from that. I also…

Fire Tales: And Other Collective Stories

As most of you may know, I am a current college student and sometimes post assignments that I have written for my classes.I failed to do that this past semester (don’t worry I’ll catch up here soon) but this semester I have something even better for you. My English class this semester is writing a…

Nervoso…

Talk about being nervous. Not only am I dealing with an intense semester (why did I think that 18 credits would be a good idea?) but I’m also volunteering for two different groups and working part-time. Where do I find time to plan to study abroad? Somehow I do. Maybe it’s because UAF has made…

Leaving the Artic for the Arts

If all goes well, in 5 months right after finals are done, I’ll be flying to Italy! While there I’ll be taking an art class or two and exploring Florence. The plan is to share my art while over there and write about my explorations. In the meantime, I’ll be writing about my time prepping for…

My E3 Favorites as of Way too Early for a Monday

To start, if you’re not already familiar, I like referring to E3 as “the Super Bowl of the gaming world”. Sure there are other big games, and they’re all important, but this one is the biggest coolest, they finally tell us release dates kind of amazingness. It may be a game “for kids” but I…

Ad Time April

I am officially an Art Major with a Marketing Minor, but I hope to use my art in marketing. I have started to follow a few ad websites… To be honest, I have them bookmarked and I check them frequently, since I don’t have the money to afford 3 $100+/year memberships. Also, I think that, until…

Weather Perspective

We laugh and tease. You get a lot of snow, or even an inch and you freak out. That is hilarious. The fear from a mild about of precipitation entertains is. We are accustomed to the snow and cold. The snow and temperatures start to drop when the schools open, and it doesn’t relent until…

Valentine’s Day… Then FASFA Day

The day after most people frivolously spend money on significant others (or tubs of single ice cream), some college students hit “sign & Send” on their FASFA’s.

New Year, New CraftyAggie

I’ve decided that CraftyAggie’s Blog will become CraftyAggie’s Life in College for the next 7 semesters.

Apologies

Apologies for recent technical difficulties. You’ll see the big fuss soon! -CraftyAggie

The Use and Abuse of the ESRB & PEGI

Video game ratings systems vary dramatically from country to country, which causes stress on the video game world. Many countries have their own ratings systems, the majority of which are supported in some fashion by their government. Attacks based on content within a game or the ratings it received are…

The Typing Lab Stories: Picking the Seat

Starting a new series today, which makes me very happy because I think I can actually follow through with this series. “The Typing Lab Stories” is for all the times I have decided to write something about something or someone in the lab when I should actually be doing homework. Hopefully you enjoy my procrastination! The choice…
