Told ya I’d be back, however, a few days late.

Okay, so I’m a bit behind with my posting. Missed it by a few days, but there are two good reasons, first I forgot and second, something big happened on Saturday, the 22nd, in the world of baseball.

On Saturday, the Chicago Cubs played the LA Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. The Cubs had taken it back to Wrigley after winning two games in LA to lead the series 3–2; Game 6 would be the decider. Granted most people probably know how the game turned out, but for the ones that don’t know, I’ll explain a bit of what happened.

Clayton Kershaw was the pitcher for the Dodgers that night. He was a thorn in the Cubbies’ side in Game 2, his pitching tied the series heading to LA. Moving up to last Saturday night, Kershaw was on the mound again. Though this time was different, the Cubbies had his number and were able to make him pitch 30 pitches in the first inning alone. The Dodgers did get on base to start the game with their first batter, but Javy Baez made an incredible double play to get the first two batters out quickly. The Cubbies struck first with 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning. By the second inning, it was 3–0 Cubbies. The third inning saw Kershaw looking to get back on form and not let the Cubs score a run. The fourth inning was incredible, Willson Contreras belted a homer to left off of Kershaw, it was Kershaw’s first postseason homer given up since last year. This brought the game to 4–0 Cubbies. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Rizzo came up to bat and blasted one to right center, Kershaw was not too happy with this hit. 5–0 Cubbies. By the sixth inning, Kershaw had been taken out; Kyle Hendricks, pitching for the Cubs, on the other hand, lasted until the seventh, but was taken out after getting one batter out; he was replaced by Aroldis Chapman. Needless to say, the Cubbies went on to shutout the Dodgers and win the series, at home in Wrigley. A great game for Cubbies fans.

They will take on the Cleveland Indians in the World Series starting on Tuesday, which I am so looking forward to.

Then on Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals played the Seattle Seahawks in football. The only reason I am mentioning this game is that it went into overtime, which could mean both teams were really good, but it didn’t look that way. We caught the end of the game with about five minutes left in overtime and it was just the funniest thing. The Cardinals were close to scoring but couldn’t get in the end zone, so they tried a field goal, which hilariously curved and bounced off the upright and missed. The kicker was dejected on the sideline, but not for too long. The Seahawks got the ball and got as close as they could to the end zone but never getting in, so they tried a field goal as well, which missed wide to the left. The kick was less than thirty yards and the Seahawks were lined up in the middle of the field! The Cardinals kicker looked to feel much better about missing. The game ended in a tie. It just seemed like neither team wanted to score, which was fine by me, you don’t see a tie too often in football and it was so funny to watch.

Anyway, that’s it for this post. Until next time, later.

I have returned (hopefully)

Well, well, well. If it isn’t Mr. Corey, back to write another blog post. Sure took you long enough to do so. Everyone had been waiting to read your latest exploits and adventures.

 

uh… okay. Well, let’s start off with, I’m back! About time. Though I just haven’t felt like posting blog entries lately. *looks at last time he posted a blog entry* Okay, for the past two years. Ugh. I will try to be better about posting more, though I just feel like nobody really cares what I have to say or if they are even reading these posts. Oh well, I can at least write for myself.

 

A quick update as to what has been happening with me, went on vacation to Europe over the summer of 2016, have been drawing the comic strip and keeping that up, been trying my hand at writing a sci-fi novel but it is slow going. I have also drawn illustrations for a children’s book (which two can be seen in my portfolio), though it hasn’t gotten published yet.

 

So, that’s about it for now. I hope to post blog entries once a week, I’m going to try to hold myself to that, but you never know.

So until my next post, later.

~CG~ :^D

Slow going, but still working hard.

It has been kind of slow after we (my parents, brother, and I) got back from our trip to Atlantic City. It was a nice relaxation from the normal routine that we do around the house. We got to see the boardwalk, play some slots in the casinos, and enjoy the great weather.

Sadly, I didn’t get around to writing the game reviews but I plan on doing that soon. I have a couple new games and some old games I’m going to review. Hopefully they will be helpful to everybody and give advice to those who are interested in learning about the games.

I have been keeping up on the comic strip and they are getting better, the puns are still around but more spread out now, I hope. We should be getting a new calendar made soon so be on the look out for that, also we are working on new t-shirts and other merchandise so hopefully we will have those done soon too.

I am also on the hunt for a job, I hope to find one. I’m going to stay optimistic and continue looking but If I don’t find one soon, I at least have the comic strip, my game reviews, and my 3D modeling to keep me busy.

That’s it for this entry, come back soon to see a new post and possibly some game reviews on my website.

~CG~ :^D

Ah, a nice relaxing time.

Well, I feel relieved. No more stress of college and homework, projects, etc. Now I just have professional work and a job to look forward to but lately I’ve been relaxing and enjoying my time off.

I have been able to create some more comic strips for Puner vs. Snow and they should be coming up in the coming weeks so be sure to look at those. I am also hard at work creating pages for the new calendar and we are working on creating a new book. So, the comic strip is getting my full attention for the time being. Though I have been distracted by something on Tv.

That’s right, the World Cup is on and I’ve been watching almost every match that has been shown. It has been a very interesting World Cup, with a lot of goals, penalties, cards, and long matches which end in penalty kicks. There are still a few games left to be played and I hope that each one is just as exciting as the matches before them. That will really make this World Cup a wonderful one.

I’ve also starting writing a book, which isn’t based on snowmen or Puner vs. Snow in any way. I’m still working out the details of the story, characters, area, etc. so I don’t have too much to say at this point but hopefully it will turn out to be a big hit.

I’ve also been playing some new games, so there might be some new game reviews coming soon. I hope to get them up before August of this year.

Well, I think that is all the information I have for now. Maybe next time I’ll have an interesting story to talk about or some interesting news about the comic strip. Who knows, you’ll just have to come back and find out.

Flavor Assignment

The assignment that we had to do was taste something that we had never tried before, write about it, and create something based on that experience. So, what I tasted was a Caramel Brownie Master Blast milkshake from Sonic. I had never had caramel before, plus it sounded good. It was a very delicious milkshake, though became salty near the end because everything had melted and settled at the bottom. It also smelled really good and look delicious. It had whipped cream, vanilla ice cream with caramel, and small chunks of brownies in it. I would eat one again.

Now, here is a picture of something I created based on the experience I had. This a 3D model of the milkshake in all its tasty glory.

Fear Assignment – Part 3

I think the one that I responded to most was Aaron’s project of having us play with Play-Doh and not really care about what we created or how it turned out as long as it made us happy that we created it.

I think the reason I liked this one best was because I felt like I had to live up to people’s expectations about my work and make it the best I could. But since Aaron presented his project, it made not care too much (more than I did before) about what people think of my projects or creations.

This helps me even more than before because I didn’t care what people thought before this assignment but Aaron’s project just increased my thinking even more. My creations are mine and if nobody likes it, I don’t really care too much because I like it.

Fear Assignment – Part 2

No reaction, like I predicted. I’ve noticed that creating drawings doesn’t really elicit a response from people in general. I think because it makes people think about what they are seeing and may bring up memories of their own.

If I did the project again, I’d probably make it darker to give it a scarier feel and try to bring out the fear a bit more. Try to make people feel something deep inside when they looked at the picture.

Fear Assignment – Part 1

The assignment that we have for the next few weeks is our Fear assignment, we have to come up with a project that reflects the fear that we have chosen to explore. I can’t explain what my project is or what the fear is at this point because it would give it away.

One thing I do have to explain is what kind of reaction I am expecting from the project that I present in class, I am expecting either no reaction or a slight chuckle. I will explain in my next post, whenever I do my presentation in class.

Class Reflection 10

For today’s class, we mostly discussed what each of us did for the assignment. It was interesting to see what everyone came up with, especially how everyone thought of fear and how they interpreted it. The topic of fear is just an interesting subject because there can be many different interpretations of the word. It could mean something physically scaring, a mental fear, a sound, a visual picture, etc. There are just so many possibilities to the term fear that it was interesting to see and hear what everyone came up with today.

Two questions on fear

For class, we have to answer two simple question about fear. The questions are “what is fear?” and “why do we have fear?”. These questions are part of an upcoming assignment based on fear, but for now, I will just answer the questions in this blog post. Part of this assignment was to read Harold and the Purple Crayon and then draw our responses to the questions using a purple crayon. So, here are my answers and drawings to the questions:

What is fear?

Fear is something of which you are afraid.

Why do we have fear?

We have fear because it is what makes us human. Without it, we would be just like robots, oblivious beings.
