I'm a Jane of all Trades. I love photography, writing, filmmaking, and animation. I am also a sideshow performer and I'm currently trying to make a life for myself in Seattle. Reading and art help me stay sane. My career goals are to write and direct movies. I'm a wayward vegan, meaning I live a mostly vegan lifestyle, but I make my own choices that are based on my own feelings, not on what someone else says.

I go to school online at Full Sail University for Creative Writing for Entertainment. I also have two years of film school under my belt, my associate's degree in electronic media, and a professional certificate in animation. I plan on getting my master's in creative writing within the next year.

Yeah... I'm doing a terrible job at becoming more active on dA!  I've pretty much been completely ignoring the site.  I think it's because I'm just so overwhelmed with my message center and add that on top of schoolwork and my full time job... it's just not fun anymore.

Anyway, I took a transmedia writing course last month and they had me work on a group project.  If you're not familiar, I go to school at Full Sail Online... so an online group project is really difficult.  I was the project manager, and with my full schedule, it was really difficult getting everyone on the same page and making the project functional... But I did it!  And I got a 100... and apparently not everyone in my group did (someone even plagiarized part of the website they created-- wtf).

If you're interested in playing the ARG that we created, here is the rabbit hole.  Basically, what you have to do is follow Iris' instructions as if everything is real.  You may call, text, email her and she will respond.

There is a point where you MIGHT get stuck because the group member that plagiarized decided to make things confusing at a certain point and won't clean up her portion... but if you do, just tell Iris you're stuck in an email.  :)  Enjoy!  Not many people have tried it out and most of us worked really hard on this project, so it would be nice to get more eyes on it.  (It'd be even nicer if the other person would fix her part... but yeah.)

In other news, it snowed in Seattle and the entire city basically shut down because they don't know how to function in winter weather.  You'd think I was in California or something.  I almost got stuck down town because my coworker was over half an hour late to relieve me (and I couldn't just leave because I was the ONLY ONE in the building)... not that it really mattered that she was late after all.  Her bus had difficulty getting through the snow and then my bus was over an hour late... It took me three hours after I got off work to get home.

I'm just glad the work week is over for me.  I'm sick and I just want to cuddle up with my computer, do my homework, eat soup, and feel better.

And because I haven't been on in awhile, here is an HP Lovecraft art feature, inspired by the project above that was based on his work, The Dunwich Horror.

Things are so-so.  I'm still living on the floor of an acquaintance/friend... and still looking for work as my savings are running out, but things could be a lot worse.  I'm trying to stay positive.

I'm going to be in town on the 28th probably from 10am to 7pm.  Videogame testing for Monolith Studio in Kirkland.
