The School System Doesn't Respect Ethnicity

Today, I spent the majority of my time in offices debating with administration on the subject of me wrapping my hair up. The result was that I had to sit at a desk under a staircase for the rest of the day for refusing to take it off. I sat at the desk for 3 hours and the rest of the say I sat in the front office waiting to speak to someone.

What Makes Artificial Intelligence So Uncanny?

Robots are a phenomenon that have been a science-fictional creative outlet for as long as the genre existed. They're mainly symbolic of the future, but ironically enough, they replicate the fundamentals of human nature more than you would think. A lot of the time, a movie would start with a scientist or a human in general who gets a robot of some sort, but then they notice that their robot is starting to develop human characteristics... mainly emotions or sentiment, that attracts or repels the main character. Sometimes, it works out really well where the robot becomes a part of the human's life. Other times, their development worries the human and they try to get rid of it. From there, the robot may either fight back or just become a martyr for robots everywhere.

ALL HAIL MACBETH: My 1st Time At An Indie Theater!!!

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

The Most Awesomest Top 15 Albums of '15

I have recently discovered that I have a fiery passion for music. It could be because I like dancing to anything that has the slightest rhythm. Or because I have found new artists to enjoy. But the thing is that they aren't new. I just so happen to find them in moments where I really needed to hear their sound. Regardless, I think that they are phenomenal to the point where I need to share them with you so you can understand why they deserve your love too. (These are in no particular order)

My Most Epic Documentary I've Ever Made... Still In The Making

It has been a while since I have made a documentary. And recently I have been reasonably busy with my need to graduate and enter the world as an adult. But at some point, I realized how special this time of my life is and how I'll never be this age again or feel the things my emotions are dishing out to me specifically at this time.

I wanted to capture the moments and their uniqueness, and make a film out of it for me to keep and cherish for the rest of my life. I still have six months until graduation, but I managed to make a good trailer out of the footage I have so far.

Sowithout further ado, here is the trailer for my documentary, "Senior", to be released summer 2016 following my graduation.

Happy Anniversary ^_^

A lot has changed in the past 3 years. For example, I'm a senior in high school, I have two awesome brothers who will be four and two soon, I'm getting ready to go to college, and I'll be leaving to go to work in a little while (gotta 12-4). It's one of those things where I wish I could leave my younger self a note saying something wise like, "It gets better."

But I think part of me knew it would get better when I started my creative outlets. This blog was one of those means of escape that I made to give me something to connect myself with others. At the time (9th grade), I was in an online school, so it seemed like a perfect time to start blogging. Now, I have less time to blog, which saddens me because I realized it's been 3 years when Facebook notified me with one of those "On This Day" thingies.

I had a shift in values, but not a bad one. I have a lot to focus on with my career in film (I'm also working on a documentary, coming to you next summer), or just adulthood in general. I plan to continue sharing to my wonderful blog in due time. This post is just something I wanted to make to myself to say, "Thank you for making this website." And thank you to all the people who have helped me along the way, and made blogging a part of my life that I will never forget.

The Lazarus Effect: Amygdala Overdrive

I do not normally watch horror films, and the only reason I watched this one was because Donald Glover is in it and he is a very awesome man. But once I watched it, I was completely surprised.

How Much Power Do Words Have?

Words are the main form of communication between humans. They help establish a sense of understanding between individuals. However, the way words are defined vary according to each person. This is because of their particular upbringing, and/or events that have occurred in their life to alter their understanding of said term. With this in mind, it is very difficult (or even impossible) to know how certain words will impact others. Whether seen with little meaning or great significance, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and feelings as to what context words should be used in.
