A major takeaway: I didn’t fail at programming!

This past semester I took a class on iOS app development. I have been building websites since I was 14 (back in the days of geocities and black backgrounds with fancy bright fonts and animated gifs before they were cool), both personally and professionally, so I have quite a bit of knowledge and experience with…

My life last week in five songs

When I heard we’d be blogging about our life in music, I was really excited. Then when I actually sat down to write the post, I realized two things: I can’t remember what I did last week. My life is pretty much the same every day. To take care of the first part, I sat…

My Week in Song

So, this week has been all over the place really. Highs and lows, lots of stress, lots of frustration, and also lots of missing my hometown, Long Beach, CA. Most of my frustration was aimed at comments on classism that weren’t well thought out and were coming from really privileged upper-mid class people, this is…

My Week’s Playlist

Tell us how your week went by putting together a playlist of five songs that represent it.  (Shhh I’m doing six) This past week has been hectic, exhausting, and stressful to say the least.

Mondays are usually my least favorite day (I know, how…

Our class has been increasingly disengaged with the material, and Monday was the day she exploded. It was both uncomfortable and entertaining for me because I had to…

My Lunch Date with Sarah Palin

So I’ll admit that I was super torn when trying to figure out who I viewed as “the most influential woman”, there are SO MANY! I went through the list of my personal favorite influential women: Ellen Degeneres, bell hooks, Audre Lorde, and so on and so forth. I could not pick. So, instead, I…

Lunch with the one and only

You get to have lunch with the most influential woman (in your eyes); who is it? why? where do you go? what do you talk about? When I first read this question, I thought about the women who have gotten me to where I am today: my mom, my grandma, my aunt, my English teachers,…

Hillary

You get to have lunch with the most influential woman (in your eyes); who is it? why? where do you go? what do you talk about? As someone who doesn’t read many nonfiction books, especially those by inspirational feminists, I’m sad to admit that I don’t know of any semi-famous women who I’d like to…
