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…

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…

The Cold Visitor

            The wind blows snow from the leafless tree branches.  The snow lands on a visitor hunting the field.  The cat prowls, pupils scanning all within vision.  The snow hides the fluffy black fur and a bright red collar.  A red leash trailed behind alongside a long black tail.            …
