Can you tell I have an addiction to coffee? I'm not picky when it comes to coffee either, oh no! As long as it's not decaf, I'll take it! If I had my pick, it would always be Starbucks and Lord knows I worked hard to get that little gold card! It's like a membership into an elite club. Yes, I'm a member just like you my fellow gold card members! We spent a ridiculous amount of money on coffee! I have no shame!

I even like fancy lattes! Hope you like my coffee addict font!

I Like...I Don't Like

It's Peer Evaluations Time! Just so you know I hate doing these, but they are required so oh well, right? Here goes!
1. The photos are great in this blog! Love them.
2. What needs to be worked on with this blog is that it really doesn't look like a blog. I would like to know more about the blogger. Pictures and content are wonderful but who are you?
3. The thing I liked most about this blog was the sense of humor and sarcasm I took away from it.
4. What I didn't like the most about this blog was that it was very plain. I also don't like the big grey boarder at the top of it.

1. I loved that this blog had a lot of humor to it and really let me know who the blogger is and what they are all about.
2. The visualization of this blog is really good, so I wouldn't change it.
3. What I liked the most about this blog was that it looked like a blog, there was many personal touches that let the reader know the blogger really likes blogging.
4. What I didn't like is the background color of all grey...add some color, you're fun so show it!

And finally...

1. This blog has many great photos and colors.
2. What needs to be worked on in this blog is that it really doesn't tell me about the blogger. The photos are great, name is great, but who is the blogger and what are they about?
3. I really liked the name of this blog and the photos.
4. What I didn't like was that if really didn't look like a blog because there wasn't really that much said about the blog or the blogger, just photos.

You guys can go ahead and tear my blog apart now!

No Comic Talent

I am not a fan of comic strips. I never read the "funnies" in the newspaper nor I could never get into comic books as a kid. I think comic books are for people who are far more smarter than me. I just don't get them. I think you have to be very creative to draw/write a comic too, which I am not. Take a look at my attempt to draw a comic strip! I suck at drawing too, if I didn't mention that already!
What I do like doing is playing with my phone. I love phone apps and I'm a professed phone app junky! My friends refer to me as the "Instagram Whore." Hey I wave my Instagram flag high! I am bound and determined to get a sponsorship from them dammit! Since I was faced with the challenge of trying to create a comic strip for this week's assignment, I took to my phone. I downloaded the free Android app, called "Rage Maker." It lets you design comic strips right on your phone and you are able to share them to social media pages like Facebook. It comes with a quick instructional video too.  It's a really easy app to use and I'm all about creating things with my phone. The app lets you create different characters and you can manipulate to be whatever size or color you want. It only took me a few minutes to get the hang of the app and took away the stress of this assignment. Yeah for smartphone art!

Feeling Like a Creeper

This has to be one of the most craziest things I've done in a while. At first I thought about having my friends send me crude, lewd and rude photos and then make a Triptych out of it, but that got a little out of hand. I got pictures of celebrities grabbing their crotches and those stupid pictures of rude comments or quotes. I had a friend send me the photos of her body after she had breast removed from cancer. I also had another send me a naked photo of himself. I was touched by these two photos because they wanted to help me but I couldn't use them for this project because they seemed too personal. Not to mention I felt like a creeper having these images on my phone. 

I have a friend who is a body painter and she is always doing some amazing and crazy things. I was telling her about my dilemma and she invited me to one of her painting/photography sessions last night. The paint was flowing just as much as the booze. It was great night filled with art, creativity and laughs. Thank you Lorrin Wagner of  Wagner Events for saving my ass!
