A concept: Canadian Maple Syrup Pipelines. There must be an economy built around the illegal transportation of maple syrup from Canada to the United States. Think about it. The maple syrup industry is too damn big for, what seems like, a niche market. A multi-million dollar industry built on occasional Sunday morning pancake breakfasts? I … More Forgotten Analogies
Finals week is here. Should be interesting. I’m pretty ready to go home. I’m just a pond tryna freeze! Quit throwing rocks into me!
It’s okay, it didn’t go horribly, just not exactly to plan. -Recent Trends
You can’t go insane yet! There’s still so much to be done! And just like that, the rain turned into snow, and the Christmas season officially started. Prone on the bedroom floor, late into the night, eyes closed, being serenaded by a carol of the season. Some temporary bliss. I have never really fully appreciated … More Ducks in the Parking Lot
I melt my brain down until it is molten, and shape it through restless forging. It is the perfect kind of challenging that kinda hurts, but it’s gratifying. I’m working towards what is important to me. I think I’m getting closer. BUT YEAH I’V E BEEN PRETTY SWELL! IT’S HARD, BUT I’M MOTIVATED TO LEARN, … More The Dry Spots When It Rains

The shaking must have been quite jarring, however, since I do feel rather overwhelmed and submerged by obligations, and my mind often reels and twitches in the late hours for … More This Must Be It!
Tonight, I leave for a 12 day cross country expedition by train to see the country and do some quality adventuring. This trip has been in the making for quite awhile now, with first plans being spontaneously made during lunch last semester to see Mt. Rainier. Now, I’m off to Washington to do just that, … More One Big Ol’ Adventure
At first glance, this abstract piece may seem to be rooted in a (what we may call) a true reality, something that is grounded in previous, valid experiences. However, at second glance, we can see that the artist has expanded upon what we initially perceive as “true” into something that is “untrue,” or, exactly what … More Opus 3
In this piece, the artist draws upon their knowledge of amphibious creatures to recreate what is, arguably, the the most poorly drawn lizard in existence. Nevertheless, this may have been an aesthetic choice. The lizard, like the rest of us, has two eyes, a tongue, and thoughts (here represented by the miscellaneous shapes and colors). … More Opus 2
