  • Value

    I posted this to my Intro to DMA blog back in Fall 2009. I felt like it needed to be reposted here… 🙂 Have you ever noticed that in some films there is a message, intentional or unintentional, that value is dependent upon certain things? For instance… You’re valuable… if you’re beautiful (think every Disney…

  • “Enjoy.”

    “Enjoy.”

    I was in the Dining Commons the other day when I overheard one person ask another, “Did you enjoy your meal?” The phrase struck me weird, and I thought about it. We can like something without enjoying it. Food can taste good, and we can fail to enjoy it. We can spend time with our…

  • The Voicemail of Paul the Apostle to Philemon. Starring John Wayne

    Author’s note: THIS paper is the worst paper EVER. It’s so bad that it loops all the way around from awful to awesome. That’s what I think. The Voicemail of Paul the Apostle to Philemon Starring John Wayne Author’s second note: Yes, I know that there weren’t any voicemail recorders back in the first century,…

  • Kristen & Dave, Chapter 1 – An Intro

    I love telling stories. I especially love telling true stories about love and such… but I’m not sure how to begin this one. I’m not sure how much backstory my readers will tolerate… but I’ll try to keep it entertaining. Some people say their fiction is personal; all stories are personal. Some say their stories…

  • The Book of Exodus: Street Style

    Written for my Biblical History and Literature class. Any similarity between this account and the account found in Genesis 2 is purely intentional. I had 800 words to summarize Exodus. I had fun with this. The Israelis are slaves in Egypt. A beautiful Israeli baby boy is floating in the river-basket his parents put him…

  • Reflections on the Holocaust

    Not for the weak of stomach. Exit while you can. Written on a sheet of notebook paper and transcribed. I’m sitting outside of chapel, They’re doing praise and worship inside, and I can’t go in. Not yet. We just watched a holocaust video. For the first time, I cried over it. The inhumanity. This must…

  • Forgiving God

    I’m a long way from orthodoxy on this one.  I’ve been asking around, but concrete answers are hard to find. Everyone seems to think that I should do it, but no one (including me) likes the notion or thinks that “forgiveness” is the right word, but I can’t seem to find a better one. I…

  • Happily Ever After, Part 2

    Ree has a magnet on her refrigerator door. The first time I saw it, I thought it was Really Insightful. Since walking away from that moment, I’ve been gradually realizing more and more what it means and how true it is. “For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to…

  • Controlling God

    I wrote this paper for my Intro to Digital Media Arts class. The paper is confusing. So is that class. This paper has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to look good on this screen. I have split long paragraphs to increase readability. Also, sorry it’s so long and “scholarly-looking.” Enjoy!…

  • Something Strange is going on…

    Last night, while I was chatting with my mom on facebook, we were scheming about what I can do so I can come back to college in the spring: Take a job for the week before Christmas with FedEx or UPS; I’m still hoping to pull off getting another loan. I’m seriously contemplating taking a…
