A Holiday Update

It's been a while since I've updated this, and I know that no one has actually read any of these because why would they? I'm a second rate artist who's really just a kid trying to go to college for game design. For some reason though I felt the need to write something here. To make myself heard in the void that is this website.

I don't know if that makes any sense, but I think it's very natural to talk when no one is listening. People keep journals or diaries; this is basically that. But anyone could read this. I guess that's the difference.

Well, today is Christmas Eve. I'm heading to my aunt's house in New York with my family. It should be some estimation of fun. I've added a piece of spoken word poetry that I wrote the other day. It seems to have raised a few alarms in the school but I'm working through the red tape that comes with writing a poem about being dead. I have had to defend myself and that poem too many times in the past four days. But ultimately, I think it was worth it. I'm proud of it and it is how I truly feel, so I refuse to censor myself to fit the norm.

If anyone is reading this I want you to know that I'm here for you. I don't care if there are people there for you, because I know that I'm here for you.

Fun In NYC

I was in New York City this past weekend. Every year, my school's choir joins with several other choral groups to perform at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine for the St. Francis Day Feast. While I was there, I took some photos that I think came out pretty well that are now on the site.

I've been trying to take more pictures in my everyday life. Ironically, I've never been one to take pictures of myself or things around me because I prefer to live in the moment, but the oppurtunity to try and share my percpective should be enough to change that. 

Well, this is new

I have never done anything like this before. This feels almost surreal. The idea of having a website, portfolio thing is so unnatural. Growing up, I never thought of myself as much of an artsy person so I assumed I wouldn't have one of these, but at this point in my life I think I'm coming into my own and this feels kinda cool

Hopefully, I'll be putting more stuff on here. For now, there's just just my game, Fish Out Of Water, and my photo album, Roots.
