Mid-Term Project – #Ist646

This week I was hopping a ride on the struggle bus. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Which made this assignment that much harder. For this week’s assignment we had to create a 1:30-2 minute video that contained pictures, narration, music, etc.

I really struggled with creating this story for some reason. It took me 3 days to figure I wanted to tell the story of how I got my cat. Then it took 2 days just to record my audio! No matter what I did, I just didn’t like my script. Even now as I listen to it one last time (it’s already edited, compressed, yada yada…. I’m not changing it again!), I’m still not really happy with it. But I don’t know what to do to make it better. Perhaps this is storyteller’s block? Is that a thing?


This story is about how I acquired my cat. She is a 1 year old Russian Blue named Tickles. I’m very passionate about animals and that passion carries over into adoption/fostering pets. I think one of the best things you can do if you’re lonely is to go to your local animal shelter and love on some fur babies. I know so many animals get forgotten or put down because someone wanted to pay big bucks to get the latest Poodle/Retriever/Pug mix. Animals are not accessories, they are companions. They are family. Adopting a shelter animal won’t just save their life, if might just save yours too.

Adopt. Don’t Shop.



Hello my beautiful bloggin babes!

It’s been awhile, I know. Shame on me.

In case anyone was wondering what happened with Birchbox, I got sick of it and canceled. I’m so fickle…


Little ole me got into GRAD SCHOOL!!!!! Whoot Whoot!!!! I will be attempting to get a Masters in Library and Information Science from Syracuse University.

So I will be using this blog for some of my assignments in the next couple of years. So not every post will be me whining about my life, or about makeup reviews. Sorry to those of you who are hard core whining fans πŸ˜‰

So keep reading and see what happens!

Stay beautiful, people of the internet!
