This is my blog!! Just a place where I can write abt my interests and junk :3
First post of the year! The year has been pretty good so far, and with school starting it's been so busy already (in a good way). I've mostly been trying to focus on getting good grades and trying to get all A's, but I've also been working on the next issue of the IWOULDVEKILLEDTOSEEIT zine, as well as practicing and recordng music for my two new music projects, the passerby do nothing to save you and fuzzy notebook. the passerby do nothing to save you is a funky lil skramzgaze project between me and few other art collective folks, while fuzzy notebook is more of a weird experimental thingy between me and Sofia where we do kind of a bunch of stuff like noise, breakcore, ambient drone, and a bunch other weird cool stuff like that! As far as I know, we're planning shows for both of these projects around late January. the passerby is def gonna take a lil' more time to form as it's a (some-what) more structured operation, with fuzzy notebook being more of a weird mix between using set-up backing tracks and improvised noise junk. Dispite their differences and similarities, I'm really excited for both projects and to see what they have in store! Please follow both bandcamps to stay in the know for both things!
I've been trying to learn Emacs (which most of this is being written in), although it definitely is something I have to spend a little more time with to fully get used to it. Still fun to learn tho!
So far, the year is turning out to be really good and I'm nothing short of excited!
This is just a small little post to say goodbye to 2022, and hello to 2023! This year was filled with great things (one of which being starting this website) and I'm excited to see what the new year has to come. I wanted to give a small thank you to all my friends and family who have been super supportive of me this past year, and thank YOU for viewing my website, it means the world to me <3.
Happy New Years!!
Last week was super busy, but everything turned out pretty well! All my grades for my semester exams came back either A-'s or B's, and my art collective's zine ("iwouldvekilledtoseeit") came out really well! The printing process was kinda hectic, but we managed to hit the amount we wanted and more pretty quickly. The market last Saturday was super fun, and we had a pretty good turn out! Tyler sold their earrings, Sofia sold their Kandi bracelets, and of course the main thing we sold was the zines. As of now, we are planning on setting up a shop on the website so people can order zines and we'll ship them out. We're also looking into the possibility of a subscription service for the zine, so they'll automatically get a zine shipped to them every time we make a new issue for a small fee every month.
This week has been pretty jam-packed, but overall pretty good. This is the last week of school before the holiday break, which means one thing: mid-terms. So far, I've been doing fairly good, although I still have a few more to do. I feel pretty confident in these last three tests because they're all elective classes plus my English class which I tend to consider as my "favorite" class. I know it's definitely not for everyone, but it's just such a calming class to me. I find so much comfort in the dead silence that fills the room while I write. It's almost like a class in between my day where I can just catch a breather and do nothing but relax and write.
Aside from exams, I've been hella busy with band things. I had my jazz concert Monday (which went great), but at the last minute yesterday morning, I was put on drums for the orchestra concert. It was super last minute considering the concert was that same day, later, but the Orchestra Director promised lunch so I obviously couldn't turn it down. It went okay, I would've done better if I had the time, but non-the-less, it was fun. On Saturday my art collective ("iwouldvekilledtoseeit") is setting up a booth at a market, so I'm super stoked for that! We'll be selling jewelry, stickers, and copies of the zine we've been working on, which came out great! We managed to print the amount of copies we wanted and more, which was nice, and we hand-stapled them all between two days. We've already sold a few copies here-and-there, but I'm really excited for the market! I wanna try getting the website for the art collective up soon, and we're figuring out the best way to share it virtually and discussing possible shipping so people can buy a physical copy online. This week has been long, but I'm proud of myself and can't wait for the market <3.
Tomorrow my art program Say Sí is screening short films that have been recently made, one of which I composed music for! I haven't seen the final product but I'm really proud of my work. I wanna try to try to release the music by itself, so I'll probably ask today if I can since it's kinda theirs. My new art collective, "iwouldvekilledtoseeit" is currently working on our first zine! There's a market coming up on the 17th so we've been kinda rushing so we can set up a booth there, but overall I'm still really stoked to see how it turns out. I wanna set up a website so people can get a zine shipped to them (along with other art), but we'll see what happens. Next week is Exam Week so school has been a bit hectic, but overall I've been doing fairly good. We have a Christmas Concert for Jazz next week, so I've just been trying to get down the rhythms and keeping tempo. I usually drum at a decent speed, but sometimes I have a tendency to speed up and drag. I should be able to get them down by the end of the week. And then finally, Christmas Break is in two weeks, so it'll all be worth it.
I might be making a few changes to the website, so possibly look for that in the future!
11/11/2022 - I'm back!
Hello! As I'm sure some people have noticed, I have been gone for a hot second, but I should be getting back into the swing of things. I've been really busy with school and other extra curriculars this last month, So I really didn't have that much time to touch anything. However, now that I'm back, I have a few ideas I wanna implement to the site. I'm planning on writing actual articles on different topics surrounding art, as well as trying to keep the site updated with new art and stuff. I really need to update the art part, so I'll prob work on that tomorrow. I'm planning on just leaving the blog as a personal journal and site updates, so I'll leave updates for where things will be added on the site as well. I'll try to at least update the blog regularly. Thank y'all for staying here and actively visiting!!
Safe surfing!! <3
9/18/2022 - "Your War (I'm One of You)" and Upcoming Projects
Hello! So I recently had some of my art be shown in a gallery a few days ago, one of which being an experimental text-based game called "Your War (I'm One of You)". The title is from one of my favorite documentaries of the same name, although there is no connection. I don't really wanna give too much info on it, but I recommend you play it yourself here. There are tons of secrets, so don't be afraid to double guess your actions! I have a few plans for a new drone experimental music compilation, so I'll probably hop on that soon. I also want to start writing some short stories and poem things whenever I get ideas and have the time. Overall there should be some cool stuff coming. I hope your as excited as I am!
8/14/2022 - School and Junk
In about a week, I'll be starting High School! I think I'm just the right amount of worried and excited, so I should be all good to go. I'm taking Marching Band and Web Design, so I'm definitely excited for those classes. I'm also taking Newspaper Journalism, which I'm also excited for. Overall, I can't wait for the year to start! Even though I've been super busy (and about to get even busier when school starts), I've had tons of ideas for new art projects and weird little artsy thingies. I've been wanting to do a huge story-based project using .txt files, although to be slightly blunt; I'm not all that sure what it would really be exactly. I also have a few ideas for some funky art installations, so maybe that's my next big project. So yeah, that sorta concludes my "accidentally monthly" blog post. Stay tuned for all that rad junk I talked about!
7/21/2022 - P Terry's
Hello! I hope you are enjoying my website! Uhhhh I honestly don't have that much to say lol. I'm getting P Terry's later tonight, so that's always a good thing! P Terry's is soooo good 🤤. Sometime soon, I'll be posting more stuff about art and music I'm working on, Dungeons and Dragons, and nerding out about music gear and web pages and things of that nature! I have a few cool ideas for the website that I'll possibly work on too like little html toys, noisemakers, games and all that jazz. So yeah! Hope you'll stay around!
