Let’s Eat: Prepping

Hello again everybody, we’re back at it again with that cookbook grind. Or, to be a bit more accurate, I never really stopped. Let me get y’all caught up. The first thing that hit me after my concept post was something called an elevator pitch. In it, I had sixty seconds to communicate my idea,…

Let’s Eat!

As we’re quickly approaching the end of the school year, it’s time for another final project! I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this one, as unlike last year’s iteration, we have a lot more creative freedom. It’s similar to a concept called 20Time, where we’re given time to work on a passion project…

To Kill A Mockingbird #2

Okay, I finally got To Kill A Mockingbird all squared away, and the first thing I have to do is apologize. I was way too hard on the book in my first entry, and while I still stand by my statements, they were spoken without the full context of the book in mind. Most of the…

To Kill a Mockingbird #1

With Othello all dead and buried, it’s now time to set our sights on a different novel. You know it. You love it. You were required to read it in high school. That’s right, after all this time it’s finally time for me to dive head first into To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Right…

Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

A PG Episode of Drunk History covering the twelve major Olympian Gods. That’s the quickest and honestly best way I can describe Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods. It’s a witty and informative read, told from the perspective of one of Riordan’s own characters, Percy Jackson, through skaz. This book within a book provides a…

Living That Life Of Purpose

Recently I picked up a podcast by the name of Joshua Medcalf on Living Life of Purpose, and while I understand where it’s coming from, I just can’t bring myself to agree with most of the stuff he’s saying. or just him in general. My main issue is that he’s so scattered it’s hard to pin…

HATSOS Design Project

My design project is done and presented, and it was quite the experience. We had such amazing plans, but they all fell through in the end. Our final presentation was a husk of what it could have been and I’m still angry about it. To give some background information, my group was in charge of…

Haroun and the Sea of Stories III

We’re finally done with Haroun and the Sea of Stories, and once again, I can’t say I’m too impressed. Like all required reading books, it falls short of most things I could really hope for in a book. As with Romeo and Juliet, the component I value the most in this book is its wit. I honestly…

Haroun and the Sea of Stores II

Another week, another analysis, and folks, we’re still on Haroun. I hate to say it, but on this reread, I noticed something. The book hasn’t really changed at all. I know was the one to suggest that Haroun was written to be the “Stereotypical Story”, but there’s no tension. It’s still just as good as the…

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

With a new year comes a new required book, and as of right now, I’m reading Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie. It’s an interesting book, despite the fact that it was written for children. Although, to older readers, it’s clear that there’s a deeper meaning to the book. Without knowing the backstory…
