Red or Green? red

We think a flower on a cliff is beautiful. Because we stop our feet at the cliff's edge. Unable to step out into the sky. Like that fearless flower.
— Tite Kubo

Favorite Class: History

Favorite Bands: My playlist includes everything from Rob Zombie to Disney songs and it lives on random.


What do you know now that you wish you knew when entering UNM?
I wish I had known more about consortium agreements when I transferred. I spent my first year on consortium and the first time going through the process was really confusing.

What surprised you the most about UNM?
I went to CNM prior to this and was used to a very personal educational experience. I was afraid that I would not have the same experience. Being just another name in a sea of students would not work well for me. However I was pleasantly surprised because overall every teacher I have had has always had the time when I needed it.

What are your favorite events around Albuquerque?
I really love that Albuquerque has something or everybody. I love the Albuquerque Comic Expo (ACE), Bubonicon, and the local Magic: The Gathering events. The local theater scene is amazing here to. The summer Shakespeare festival at the Vortex is a must-see every year. I have seen some great plays put on by Mother Road Theater Company and Foul Play Café is perfect for a date night.

What were your expectations about UNM?
I really didn’t have a lot of expectations when I started here. I tend to be a wait and see kind of person. Overall, I am enjoying my time here so far.

Being a fine arts major means having weird school related expenses. This time it was headphones for a sound class. My earbuds were simply not going to cut it. I think the weirdest thing I have ever bought for a class was the supplies for an 8′ window on stilts. Try explaining that to the […]

So I have decided to submit one of my scripts to Amazon. It is one I wrote last semester. The story is a half-hour kids show. I really fell in love with my characters and I hope those who read my script will too. It is probably going to be rejected but if you never […]
