Well, well, well, what do we have here? A final post? How is that even possible? This semester was something else; a beast Beowulf couldn’t even slay, but we did it! I want to take a moment to generally look over this class as a whole as well as reflect on the semester. I think… Read more One Last Reflection 🙂
There is no I in Team
This collection of photographs were taken by myself. They are self-portraits that I took via BlueTooth remote control of my camera. I had a lot of fun with this project and as the pictures were taken they formed a story. I set out to depict good vs bad or heavenly vs evil but it quickly… Read more There is no I in Team
An Unexpected Mash-up
Okay, let’s talk about Paradise Lost Book 1 because WOW. I had a really really hard time with the 16th century literature it was not my jam mostly because I felt like a dog searching for a squirrel I had no clue what was happening. Paradise Lost though, this was some vivid imagery and it… Read more An Unexpected Mash-up
Less bold than a sign, Still there is that lingering line. Invisible to the ignorant Making itself more tolerant. Breeding Reproducing Recreating More subtly than a white sheet Yet the young man is still not safe on the street. Oppressors walking amongst us Your silence feds the beast Ignoring it Satisfies it Encourages it Nurtures… Read more Shape-Shifter
On reading, Orcs, Britons, And The Martial Race Myth, Part II: They’re Not Human by James Mendez Hodes, I couldn’t help but reflect on racism and how I have been exposed to it through my education. In high school we barely touched on it, history classes start so far back I knew the Mesopotamian rivers… Read more Shape-Shifter

That title was suppose to be long and obnoxious for a reason. You can not convince me this is actually the way people spoke back in the day. However, my assumption is based on absolutely no fact, so anyone out there, want to fill me in? Was writing elongated to fill word counts like my… Read more I shall request the knowledge inorder to satisfy my dire need to be the knower of all things, 16th Century communication, both written and verbally.
Beowulf as a Woman???
Okay, I know we read Beowulf a fat minute ago, but after I turned in my project it dawned on me, what if Beowulf was a woman? This post will be brief because I would really like to know what other people think here, because here are my theories. Exhibit a) Beowulf as a woman… Read more Beowulf as a Woman???
Witch or Woman?
A collection of photos, depicting women in 16th century literature. Women in medieval literature were typically one dimensional characters. They weren’t the hero or anything other than a trouble maker. They were depicted as pure and good or promiscuous and evil. They were one thing or the other. The lighting in this image shows only… Read more Witch or Woman?
Humans Really Don’t Change
“The world is in chaos,” “How do we handle something that has never happened before?”. Only, it has happened before. No COVID-19 has not been seen before, but pandemics have, and ironically we are acting the same as they did way back when. My first question is why do we react the same way to… Read more Humans Really Don’t Change
I was wrong…
Until this past summer, I never would have considered myself a feminist, I really wouldn’t. I was the girl who hung out with the guys (still do that because girls can be werewolf rip out your throat mean) and said “I have all the rights I need I don’t know why people are complaining.” As… Read more I was wrong…
