Just over two weeks left…


…until my holiday break is over. Time is whizzing by!

I had a busy but great semester. Unfortunately I didn’t get around to posting another update back in November. I would say the end of October through the beginning of December is the busiest time of the fall semester.

My major project for the fall semester was for my JavaScript class, and I worked on it together with two other students in the class. We got a lot accomplished but we’re still not done. I think partly it is because we really didn’t start working on it until near the end of October. We actually spent about 8 hours on the two “study days” between the end of classes and exams to get more work done. You can get a lot accomplished when you’re one of the few people actually in the building! We’re still able to get a grade for the class, but because the project is for the VIU Media Studies department, we are going to continue working on it outside of class time next semester to finish and launch it hopefully by the end of January or so.

Anyways, I don’t really have much else to say! I’ll try to update more next semester, but I can’t guarantee anything. 😛 I’d like to write some tutorials as well to share, but I’m not sure what I’d like to cover just yet. I may hold off on that until after next semester, but we’ll see. Something may come to me before the semester begins!

I’d also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy 2011! 🙂

Time is flying by!


Well, I’m not very good at blogging. At least not right now, when I’m busy!

It’s the middle of the semester, so I’m right in the middle of one of the busiest times of the semester. November is going to be a very busy month as I have a couple major projects going on, as well as all the other little assignments and readings, etc.

I feel like I am managing my time very well though, and I’m not getting behind which is important!

I do have some news though! I have been accepted to the VIU Exchange Program! I will hopefully be going to Australia next year for a semester exchange! I’m very excited about this, and soon I will be applying to the university I want to go to.

Anyways, this is just a little update for y’all. I can’t guarantee anything, but I’ll try to give another update before the month is over. 🙂

September Update!


Hey everyone!

It’s been awhile since I have posted anything on here, so I thought I would give an update for any of you who want to know what’s happening!

University started on the 8th for me and it’s been pretty good so far! I am taking four classes this semester. Three are Media Studies classes while the other is a Digital Media class. The Digital Media class is by far my favorite because it’s my JavaScript class. 😀 I worked with basic JavaScript last year, but it’s really been since Fall 2009 semester when I was really focusing on it. Spring 2010 was all about PHP, MySQL, databased, etc. and a little JavaScript. So I’m glad to be focusing on it again and I will be learning AJAX, going further into the power of JavaScript. Three other students in the class and myself have worked with JavaScript before, so though we will still be a part of the class, we are going to work as a team on a project together this semester so that we’re getting challenged enough. I’m really excited for this, and I will keep you all posted on the progress that we make.

Product Review: 2010 Macbook Pro


As you may know, I recently bought my first Macbook Pro a few weeks ago. I have now had plenty of time to learn how to use it, change all the settings the way I like it, and get everything transferred over from my old laptop. I thought it would be a good idea to give a review for those of you who may be considering making the move to a Mac for the first time.

I made the move to a Mac for a few reasons. One was I really need a new laptop. My previous laptop is 3 years old and I desperately needed something way more up to date, something that is more suitable for my needs. Another is because Macs are basically the norm in the graphic and web design world, and as a lover of technology, to be honest I couldn’t be out of the loop. But don’t worry you PC fans, I still have my good old desktop, which I believe is about 5.5 years old now. I also wanted a Mac just to try something different! It doesn’t hurt that they are completely and totally gorgeous as well, which brings me to…

Welcome to my online portfolio!


Thanks for stopping by! I’m finally able to release my website to the world. It has been down for a long time and I spent a lot of time on it – especially when I lost some work and had to spend a couple hours putting content back in. I’ve learned from that mistake, big time. I went with a clean, fresh look for my website, and it’s my first time using WordPress and a working with a child theme (off of Thematic). I really enjoyed the experience, and I’m looking forward to using it a lot more, and getting to know it as a CMS!!

Anyways, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to comment below or contact me directly!
