A big thank you to Girl-ish for publishing my article. This is my first contribution to their publication. I'm looking forward to many more. This article is in response to the less than friendly interview between the hosts of Good Day Sacramento and Cara Delevingne.
I've posted my most recent blog post on Medium. It looks at the influence society can have over a blooming identity and how I found confidence throw growing up with a pop star.
I've been working on this piece for about two weeks now and feel I could spend a lifetime studying the implications and applications of the subject. Still, it was a pleasure to grapple with the meaning of beauty and how it affects humanity at its core.
As an update, my other article, William Blake and the Fossilization of the Imagination has hit over 1,300 reads and 100 recommendations. I've had so many people tweet me, sharing the link. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for the support as people lend their minds to critical thought.
In my recent study of British Literature, I've been confronted with the Romantics: passionate, philosophizing poets. Their concerns regarding society and the individual's heart and mind directly apply to our culture's search now for self and truth.
I took the time to collect some of the thoughts of a particular writer recently in an informal form to make the link between the past and present and further delve into my study. Please take a moment to peruse William Blake's idea to cure the chronic weariness infecting our culture.
My final semester as an undergraduate is in full swing. Oddly enough, as my college career has progressed, the classes have become the easy part. The beauty of being a media major is there is always a new project to work on.
This semester I'm producing our tri-weekly broadcast, taking two literature courses to finish up my Creative Writing degree, producing and working weekly sporting broadcasts, working as a lab assistant to maintain the department's media equipment, as well as planning and accomplishing two independent studies (the first focused on directing a play and two short films, the other co-producing a simulcast of our university's film festival at the end of the semester).
All of these projects bring new challenges, new friends, and new opportunities to learn and hone my skills. I'm honored to be a part of all of them and look forward to sharing what I learn and achieve with you.
In addition to the above projects, I've also been making time to write by blogging on an eclectic array of life topics as well as revise my novel. Below is the link to my latest blog post regarding relationships and trust explained through the light of medical metaphors. Enjoy.
