Three Weeks Left!

Thanksgiving break came and left, leaving students three more weeks to cram in all of the assignments that they can before Winter break begins. As a film student, those assignments mean shooting and editing. My most recent project had to be a three minute non-dialoge narrative and If I Didn't Care was the result. Creepy lil' piece, I must say. 

I also updated on "Johnnyberch77" (obviously) and have a whole new crop of videos!

Walkin' Down the Street

Living off campus means that I have to put a little extra time into walking to class, simply because I don't live as close to UArts as those who do. The only time that the walk can get a little tedious is when it's angrily downpouring, freezing cold (and soon, snow), or when i'm inching my way down the street to attend my early class. However, there is a way to make life (and a walk to class) a little more fun. There is this thing I do when enduring a walk or another everyday activity that includes headphones. Listening to music?

Hurricane Sandy's Wrath

You never really understand the extent of a hurricane until it strikes full force. With only a few days notice of the oncoming hurricane "Sandy", people seemed pretty prepared considering that Hurricane Irene only happened a year ago. However, some places were less fortunate as Sandy had much destructive effects over other areas. Sunday morning I recieved word that UArts was closed on Monday (October 29th) and Tuesday (October 30th) and work was cancelled, my roomate and I packed our bags, hopped on a train, and headed back to South Jersey to brave the storm with our families.

Halloween Festivities

So here it is! My first post as a student blogger! I must say, this is kind of a great outlet for me to share what is happening in my life. I, for some reason, love when people know what I am up to all the time. I am a daily YouTuber, which could explain a lot. Anyway, on to my point. Halloween runs about three months for me considering that I absolutely love everything about it to death. Among the many aspects of the ghoulish month of October comes the candy and, more importantly, the candy corn. I feel like I am the only one who loves candy corn the way I do.
