adobe’s creative types

Recently, I stumbled across Adobe Create Magazine’s Creative Types personality test. (As you can see, my recent blogposts show my tendency to wander away from doing work online to random games and quizzes – sigh). Lack of productivity aside, this personality test is one of the most beautiful designed quizzes I’ve ever come across. Far…

can’t unsee

Do you ever pull up a new window with the intent of logging onto Canvas and pulling up the midterm review slides for your 9 AM exam tomorrow and end up spending 40 minutes playing games? Well, I have. (but seriously help I have an exam tomorrow morning why am I like this) Can’t Unsee…

liz + mollie

I recently came across the work of illustrators Liz and Mollie on Instagram. Their charming illustrations provide a much needed sense of comic relief for young adults, putting a playful spin on issues ranging from work life to relationships. If you want to see something a little different on your Instagram feed, you can follow…

Coincidentally, I stumbled across an article today that discussed the…

movies then, movies now

In my VLST101 recitation today, we discussed the work of Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto.

morning light

I haven’t always been a morning person – in freshmen year, I was notorious for skipping most (all) of my 9 and 10 AMs by sleeping through all my alarms. On weekends, it would only get worse – unknown to me at the time, my friends started placing bets to see which one of us…

Huji, Calla, and the Return of Film

I’m starting to wonder if I’m getting old. Growing up, I remember my mom telling me that recent trends from her childhood we’re suddenly coming back in style, much to her amusement. And yet, I’ve started to notice the same thing – the white chunky sneakers I was forced to wear for primary school are…

how i spend all my time on youtube

During yesterday’s snow day, I found myself using my newfound free time wandering through my favorite thing on YouTube: the COLORS channel. COLORS, a music platform that blends music with visual art. Each of their videos features a live performance of a new artists, with a particular emphasis on R&B and jazz. Watching each video,…
