Will I Continue this Blog? (EC Blog 5)

No. That is the short answer.

Here is the longer answer. This blog was created for my MCC 2100 class. I probably would not have made it on my own if it had not been required. It’s not that I hate blogging but I have had blogs before and realized that I don’t have the time or interest to keep up with a Blog. I have a YouTube channel that I keep up with and I love that but I have no interest in keeping up with a blog. I’ve tried it twice in my life and they have sense been deleted.

I do not know if this will get deleted or not but I know that I will not keep up with it. I don’t have time to put something else on my plate so this will probably be the last post put on here. Just know that I have loved this class.

Universal Over Disney (EC Blog 4)

Today I am going to talk about why I prefer Universal over Disney. I am an Annual Pass holder for Universal. I by no means dislike Disney. I enjoy any chance I get to go to Disney but when I was choosing a park to become a Pass member with I decided to go with Universal. Here is why.

  1. Universal has a cheaper monthly payment. Both parks have a monthly payment option that starts with a down payment. My Universal pass is for two parks and is the highest pass available at less than $24 a month. My down payment was around $250. Disney has a lower down payment but a higher monthly payment. I cannot afford $50-60 a month but I can afford to pay $24 a month, which I why I picked Universal. And yes, I am aware Disney has four parks versus Universal’s three parks to pick from.
  2. Universal caters to the older person. I love Disney as much as the next person but Universal really caters to the older person instead of children. Universal has attractions surrounding Marvel, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and popular movies.
  3.  I am obsessed with Harry Potter. So I always want to go to Harry Potter World. That was a major factor when I was getting my pass.

 

I love having my Universal Pass and always find time to go each month. I love Disney and make the most out of any time I get to go but I am dedicated to Universal and love having the pass.

How to Bullet Journal without Artistic Skills (EC Blog 3)

Bullet journaling is a thing that has taken the world by storm. It is all over Pinterest and the internet. I made a video about this for my YouTube channel. I finally caved and decided to make a Book Bullet Journal. Here is why I was hesitant. I am not an artist so I have found alternative ways to attempt to make this nice looking, despite my lack of art skills. I have gone crazy at Michael’s and Joann’s craft stores. I found a ton of letter stickers in many different colors (all of which I got at a discounted price) and have been using that for my lettering. I love using it. I only wanted to make this so I could have a page tracker (which I am obsessed with).

Now my issue is just getting the letters to be straight. I am trying to use tweezers and a ruler to help make the letters straight.

I am still trying to find some more art hacks to use for this but so far, the stickers is all I have.

A Crazy Weekend (EC Blog 2)

I know that I live a busy life. I go to school full time, I have a part time job and I keep up a decent social life. But there was a weekend that was so full and I just wanted to be at home for most of it.

The 2018 year was my final year being on the planning committee for Relay for Life of Riverview. I just don’t have the time to dedicate to it anymore. Relay for Life is an all night cancer walk. I did not want to stay the whole night this year. Yet I took the day off work, as I always have, and helped set up and spent a few hours there. Someone, somewhere must have known I did not want to spend the night because the morning of, I woke up sick. No one ever wants to be sick, but at least I had an excuse to not stay the night. So I stayed for a few hours and went home.

Saturday comes and I wake up exhausted and still a little sick. But today was a concert day. The best kind of concert is a free concert and that’s what this was because I am a Busch Gardens Pass Member and I was able to go see The All-American Rejects for the third time in my life. After the concert, my friend Mikaela and I went to Steak N’ Shake and enjoyed our late dinner. During that, all I wanted to do was go home and curl up with a book I had been reading a loving.

Finally Sunday comes, but I don’t get a break because I got to go to Orlando with my mom to meet and watch one of our favorite drag queens, Trixie Mattel. So in the early afternoon we hit the road to Orlando and enjoy our night.

We ended up getting home just after midnight and I went to bed and dropped like a fly. I slept until my 8:30AM alarm and suddenly it was back to life as normal. Work and classes. As busy as it was, it was still an amazing weekend.

Reflecting on this Semester (EC Blog 1)

We’re coming up on the end of the semester so I decided (last minute) to do the extra credit assignment. For the next few blogs, I thought I would choose various things to talk about. To start, I’m going to reflect on this semester.

Honestly, it feels like it just started and now we’re already done. I remember when Spring Break had ended. I am excited. This is my last semester at HCC so it’s the last semester of what is familiar to me. But isn’t that the adventurous part? Trying something new. That is what going to USF will be for me. A new adventure.

I have enjoyed this semester, for the most part. I’m so happy. There were a few bumps in the road with a class (Logic) but I all my grades have stayed as an A (except Logic) and I think I have done a great job this semester. Now it’s time for the last three semesters of my college life.

Blog #10

Today I am going to talk about my Newsy story. I found an article on newsy.com that is about the new movie “Love, Simon”, which is an adaptaion of the book “Simon vs. the Homo Sapians Agenda” by Becky Albertalli. I read and fell in love with this book as well as the movie. I love them both. So when I saw this article, I knew it would be perfect for me to use for my story. I started writing and am hoping to make a good story out of it since I love it so much.

Here is the start of my story:

Love, Simon is a teen romantic comedy following a gay high schooler and his story of coming out. This is a first when it comes to LGBT+ teens being featured in a film from a major studio. While the film is not the first of its kind, it is a revolutionary film for people, especially teenagers, to watch.

BLOG #9

It has been awhile since we have done a blog post! Today we are exploring NEWSY.com and discussing what we thought about it. The first thing I noticed when I pulled this site up is that there are a lot of articles just on the top of the homepage. That gives me the impression that they have a lot to cover. I immediately saw a post regarding Trump (of course).

I like that this website offers a variety of categories. There are things in just the United States and then there is World news which is nice to know if you are interested in things going on in other countries. I also like that there are different categories for things about science, politics and culture.

I think this is a very well orgnized website and I think it will be nice to learn about news from this website. I enjoyed exploring it and find it very simple yet informational about the news going on in our world.
