katrina fallout

..but inland, we’ve certainly felt the affects of katrina, too. It’s not enough that we’ve had tornodoes, and at one point in the evening, there was a flash flood, tornado watch, and a high wind advisory. We’ve had worse than all of that — we’ve had panic.

Hurricanes

Having spent a good portion of my childhood in a beach town (and many a summer as a teenager at the beach), I can’t help but feel for the people in gulf, especially my dear friends who live there. Katrina is going to be rough. I had been thinking about visiting Nola (New Orleans, LA) sometime in the near future, but I think now, it ...

vacation recap pt. 1 (the fort, the museum, and the lighthouse)

I always need a few days or a week to synthesize my vacation. Vacations for me always end up kind of adventurous. I’m not sure why; perhaps, because I try to be open to opportunities. I think I might put together a mini series of all of the accidental places I’ve ended up … from the world’s largest sitka tree to the water fountain/tunnel which ...

Here we go

So, I’m signed up for the second studio class in Instructional Technology, now titled Instructional Design &; Development. I have to decide this semester if I want to go this route or the New Media Institute’s program. The Digital Media through the art school sounds like a no go. I would have to have two separate portfolios and apply twice; yes, twice, once to art ...
