So many things on my blog are broken/outdated/out-of-place and I really need to update the theme! I keep telling myself that, but I’ve yet to do it after several years, hah… in the meantime, here’s some stuff from the past month or so.
My first attempt at learning Adobe After Effects. It’s a one minute visual composition of one of my favorite poems, “One Art” by Elizabeth Bishop. I’ve been using this poem since freshman year of college in several different projects, writings, analyses, etc. and I’m not sure why I’m so attached to it. ANYWAY, I think it took me waay too long for me to finish a 1 minute project. I have an extreme love/hate relationship with new software, but it’s all about getting over the hump of learning the workspace for me. Video work is very interesting, but I still have a long way to go.
I looked back at my entries from way back in high school, and I wrote so much and shared a lot more about myself back then. Had a strong network of other bloggers going, too. I really, really want to post more personal content and writing, but I’m conflicted by this boundary of sharing too much vs. too little of myself. Social media is so interesting and fun, but it’s so easy to get myself caught up in it! (Hence why I deleted my Tumblr, because of reasons.) I want to get over that mental block and put myself out there a little bit more, maybe even start posting some of my academic writings.
In the meantime, while I’m slowly updating and fixing everything, you can check out these links:
