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.

My job hunt is beginning to bear fruit, or at least interviews. I was discussing this with my business instructor because I was taught long ago to send out “thank you notes” after an interview. These are small insignificant gestures but they make a huge difference. They are not only kind but they are also […]

I love the arts and live performances. My boyfriend got us tickets to the recent Sci-fi night with the New Mexico Philharmonic. It was a blast and the first time I have caught a show at Popejoy. As with most things Sci-fi spectacle is a part of the game. The local 501st Legion was out […]

For extra credit, I had to make a 30 second video about why I am a creative. This is what I came up with.

Not an End Simply a New Stage

Graduation is often seen as the end, the completion, and to some extent it is, but you should never stop learning. In my field, which is half creative and half technical, programs are always changing with new technology. One instructor said he has worked with 12-15 different programs in about 20 years. Things are going to […]
