Week 3, Day One

     For those of you who did not know, I spent yesterday not doing homework and rather, moshing and raving at Juice Jam 2014. What is that? Its just one of those School-sponsored Syracuse Parties where popular, or in this case, unknown artists come to Sktop Hill south of campus and just play bass-inundating…

Calvin and Hobbes – Waiting for Godot

This is a creative project that I made after finishing the play Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.
