There is an assignment where we had to take many pictures of features of good pictures (lines,shape,texture,positive and negative space,repetition, and contrast) even after being told what to do 10 times I still messed up and I wasted an hour on pictures I could not use. It ended up that my mother had to help me for over an hour. I would take...

  9. Chapter Three: Cradle

    Once out of the library building Celeste began sprinting towards the nearest public transit docking station. The ferry had about another ten minutes until it arrived, and after the mild confrontation with Professor Yama, Celeste was nervous about staying too long. There were four University students clustered together discussing how unfair the calculous exam had been. She decided if she tucked herself into the seat behind them, she would be harder to see if protectorate decided to search for...

From each of these experiences I'm able to learn and do better each time afterwards, which is how I'm getting better at job interviews. The frustrating part about this is actually getting the interviews. I can only get better the more I go to, but employers don't make it easy. I can't tell you how many times I've been told "we're not actually hiring right now" or "we just...

Then in June of this year (2020) I realized I didn't care about Warrior Cats. Using their names would make for many many results, but that wasn't the point of the idea.
