‘David Bowie Is’ Hmm…

A  couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to the DavidBowieIs experience with my friend at the Brooklyn Museum.  It was interesting.

Black Mirror

Have you all been watching Black Mirror? This show is amazing. I can’t help but think about one of my previous courses when watching this show.

NaNoWriMo is Upon Us!

For those who don’t know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It is observed annually in November. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of November.

Halloween Broadway Garden Disaster?

Halloween Broadway Garden Disaster?

There were many things I did with my break from classes. All good, but filled with dilemmas! What to do?
