Trump Loses Hitler’s Support

“He’s doing it all wrong” said the long dead leader of Nazi Germany on Sunday. “He stomps like a stier in a glas shop. Does he plan to rule what is broken? Scheisse.” After Trump started to use more than one prejudice scapegoat during his long and spirited presidential campaign, Hitler said he felt as…

Wait a second, I thought you were running a food blog. What happened here? Well, let me tell you a thing or two about The Dirt Mouth. She found her hands unable to write recipes when the news was doing nothing more than turning her stomach. She’s always had a thing for wit, and poetry,…

Flipping the Switch on the Forever War

The following is a creative piece I wrote for my special topics in rhetorics class last fall. I have heard that long preambles are a waste of reader time and energy, so I’ll keep it short. The following link (Jonathan Swift, A Modest Proposal, 1729) is an online version of the piece which inspired my own, and the…

Anne Lauren Co is Olivia’s jewelry website. Immediately, you are shown a beautiful spanning background of pastel clouds over an ocean front. Her colors speak of elegance, class and refinement, and her smooth name for the website only further compliments this design theme.

How do I look? Design, my age old enemy. Every time I change my theme, I become infatuated with the new design, only to grow sick of it within weeks. Now, I’m starting to see that I might have to manufacture my own sort of collage image for the header, as there are no designs…

I don’t mean to say that you should be an expert on woodworking before you start selling birdhouses, more so, I think you need to…

Do you want to be a star? I’m finding that this is the question of week one of PUB 201: Publication of the Professional Self. So what does it mean to have a professional self? I think I’ve always found this concept a little weird, mostly because the “professional” people I truly respect don’t go…

Cyber (In)Activism: The Dangers of Echo Chambers

This is my mom. When she was in university, conducting research and writing papers, she had to rely on encyclopedias, research publications, academic journals, and news articles. All in print, in one place, at one time. She would have go to the library and physically engage in research. This is me. I can access databases…

Peer Review #3

Upon first reading the opening page to Camoflauged Citizen, I am immediately reminded of James Hamblin’s, How to Talk to Strangers, because that seems to be the very wall CJ intends to break down while in his site. The audience targeted for this site is very general. Reading this blog would be like getting to know someone, because…
