Greetings and salutations. As you may have noticed, things have been a little different around here recently. A little more barren. Don't worry, it's not a symptom of finally running out of ideas. I did that about a year ago and wrote about my pencil set. Nor is it some delusion that my Naruto-Arena post … Continue reading The… Anti-Summer 2018 Initiative?
If my life were a series of Sesame Street episodes, the word of the day would be: Meetings. Pretty much as soon as I woke up, I joined Mom at a local Starbucks to have breakfast with Tatjana — the wife of Magic Moreno, who I spoke to for Gladeo not long ago. Worth reading if … Continue reading Meeting expectations
A change of scenery
When I wasn't playing Smash Bros., I've spent the last two days trying to get a jump on the last four pieces of my fall 2018 commitments. Namely the last essay for my Evolution and Creation class. Granted, the process of buckling down and focusing has been made slightly more difficult by the constant Discord … Continue reading A change of scenery
Changing of the seasons
If I have any people to thank for just about all of the great stuff that has happened to me over the last three+ years, Bonnie Stewart has to be a big one. Today, current and old members of the Daily Titan staff threw our favorite advisor a surprise party before her retirement from CSUF. … Continue reading Changing of the seasons
Giving less than thanks

Overheard at a Starbucks counter
For all intents and purposes, this morning has kind of been a bust. I'm going to spend a good chunk of this post complaining before getting to the fun Starbucks bit, as a fair warning. I woke up extra early today, around 6:00 a.m. or so, that way I could commute to campus and show … Continue reading Overheard at a Starbucks counter
Covering Barack Obama
Anyone else ever go to an event and then come home and pass out for four hours? No? Just me? Alright. Well, that being said, I'm sure anyone who follows me on social media knows where I'm going with this blog post. I spent the day out covering former President Barack Obama's visit to … Continue reading Covering Barack Obama
Am I Uncomfortable with Silence?
So this post comes in response to what I wrote the other day about the dichotomy of transcription, why it's a terrible thing to do but also why it's the best thing one can do when practicing journalism. I know there was a gap where I talked about videa gaymes because of timely E3 business, … Continue reading Am I Uncomfortable with Silence?
Whipping out the Wallet
I've been on a bit of a cleaning kick lately. Getting the house straightened up tends to be one of my first big summer projects, as we're coming fresh off the busy end of a semester/school year where things tend to become a pig sty and I feel a little bad about how little I've … Continue reading Whipping out the Wallet
