In the same way, the young lady in my assignment was pushed to write and describe things in ways she never has before, without the use of her eyes.

I like to journal the classic way (I’m not really even sure what would be the other way of journaling?), in a diary. I’m really bad about actually writing in it regularly, but I do keep a list on my cellphone of things I need to write in my journal, so that when I do … Continue reading Journal Entry
For my media autobiography, I decided to do a combination of both music and literature. There’s not really any specific order to this, though I did try to organize each category (songs and books) in the order of life events it occurred with. “God Is All Around Us” by Twila Paris Truthfully, the entire CD … Continue reading Creative Writing ~ Media Autobiography

I look into my mirror anxiously, anticipating what would occur. As I do so, I catch sound of my maid of honor hurrying into this room. “Nora!” Lissy shouts, flashing a grin. “You look stunning!

Being a romantic, I love weddings. The atmosphere, the occasion – everything about it is wonderful. When I was little, I was able to participate in my aunt’s wedding – as the flower girl!
