This week has been a nice sluggish week after the rush of producing our radio show. Speaking of our radio show, here is my reflection of the experience (along with the listening of others’ shows):
The assignment I redid this week was the write an alternate ending.
Here was my original attempt:
And here is my new attempt:
I am happy to have the chance to redo an old assignment, though I thought it would have better to do closer to the end of the semester once most of our assignments have been completed. This one turned out great, mostly because I inserted my character into it and expanded more than I had on my first attempt.

A few years ago on Earth Day, Google had a quiz to see what animal you are, and I got the pangolin. I think they are adorable creatures that look like they’re about to nervously ask their crush to prom.

Okay, so only the first dog (the wizard dog) is really mine. The other two were adopted-for-a-day from the Fredericksburg SPCA in order to get them out of the shelter and moving more than they are usually able. I can’t wait until the day when I get a dog of my own, but for now I can appreciate any I can spend time with.
p.s. I tried becoming a cat person, but my allergies put up a hard fight.
GIFS and Pics, pushing out content
like no one’s business. I wasn’t prepared
for the slamming tide of skills
that crashed into me, but now
I am a part of an ocean
of other ever-changing waves.
Together we make each other
both powerful and beautiful. #tdc2268 #theend106

I like writing poetry, but only giving myself a few minutes to come up with one was a very hard thing to do. I am pretty happy with how it turned out, especially after I added the line breaks in the right places.
Question of the Week
What’s one thing you definitely couldn’t live without during the apocalypse? How would you go about obtaining it?
I think this is a toss up between food and water, since those are absolutely essential to live. On top of that, shelter is really important. My food would have to be scavenged and rationed, and I think I would probably have to get really creative in what I eat when my supplies are low (but hopefully not eat something poisonous). Clean water would also be a problem, so if I could learn to jimmy up a rain catcher that could help (unless the apocalypse causes air pollution, then that might not be very good). If I’m lucky, my shelter wouldn’t have to change too often. I would probably need some place that passerby wouldn’t desperately want to pillage, but also a place that’s safe to live in (and maybe even nice to live in, but nice is a luxury in the apocalypse).
