Flashforward

The TV show This Is Us got me again.  I can’t believe how many many parallels there are between its storyline and my thesis project.  It’s been an inspiration.   ****Spoiler Alert for any fans who may have missed the episode after the Superbowl*** The audience was led to believe a certain young foster child […]

Triumphant Return

Hello, and thank you, to everyone who has shown an interest in my research!  I’m back, and I owe you all an apology for falling off the face of the Earth a few months ago.  I had some major health issues last semester that forced me to take a medical leave of absence, which I’ll … Continue reading Triumphant Return

How does my story end?

How does my story end? I wondered as I sat down for a writing session. Hmmmm…..and, When does my story end?  For me, the ending may actually be the beginning.  Playing with the idea of reverse chronology had me thinking about how far into the future I should explore. Would I be conversing with my […]

Nonlinear narrative From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Nonlinear narrative, disjointed narrative or disrupted narrative is a narrative technique, sometimes used in literature, film, hypertext websites and other narratives, where events are portrayed, for example, out of chronological order or in other ways where the narrative does not follow the direct causality pattern of the events […]

Skeleton Intro

Really, really rough attempt at thinking about my into….to be continued…. Intro (first draft- ROUGH!!) Description (from proposal..may need to change) My MA thesis is a highly personal and creative endeavor which explores the ways in which memory and mode impact the construction of meaning, the development of truth, and the discovery of one’s self. […]

Not My Intro

If you could have a conversation with a loved one that has passed, what would you say? Better yet, what would they say? I’m not certain this question is at the heart of my thesis, but I like it. It’s something, perhaps, I could ask myself about my grandmother, too. She died when I was […]

Conversations with My Father

So, after a list of about 15-20 “working titles,” the one that seems to stick best is simply, “Conversations with My Father.”  Perhaps a subtitle is in order, too, but it’s how I find myself referring to my project in my mind.  That’s what it is, in a nutshell.  I like the simplicity of the […]

in and out.

I am kind of stagnant right now and I don’t like it. I feel like I don’t know how to get myself situated again amidst everything that has been going on. It sucks that my time can’t be dedicated to thesis work alone as I still have to adhere to requirements for elective courses. I […]

Nostalgia

Progress….. OER 18 proposal has been submitted.  Check! Proposal (Final 250 words) Registered for Spring Thesis Seminar….last class for my thesis completion!!!  Check! This Thanksgiving was particularly nostalgic for me.  I got lost in hours of home videos.  For my own ease of reference, I’ve linked them below.  I realize I often make comments about […]

Scalar

Scalar is a curious little program.  There are some cool features such as the “choose your path option,” but it took a long time for me to get the hang of it and I hit a few roadblocks which, thankfully I was able to around (eventually).  The site doesn’t allow large images so I ended up using […]
