Love Letters

I thought this was relevant, since it's where we started early in the semester with the history of e-lit and generative poetry. Nick Montfort recreated Love Letters by Christopher Strachey for a series of work called Memory Slam.

I couldn't decide if these were more funny or sad but given the poster for this class had VR goggles & we started with memes, I thought it was appropriate. We're ALMOST THERE! And here's hoping for a non-virtual graduation in the near future!

Final Post

For my final post I wanted to share this gif captioned “The new social distance Olympics”. It’s funny to see all these people running around a hotel floor on 3 different floors. But hey we all have to stay active somehow right? This is how I’ve felt running away from all the final projects I need to work on, but I just keep running away from them. However, I’m still looking to finish this semester strong.

Final Post :/

For my final post I'm going to share a meme I saw on Instagram a few days ago. I'm not sure who created it so I can't give anyone credit. I know a lot of people are feeling really strange about this new educational set up and the amount of assignments due for other classes have been overwhelming. Last week I had a project, an essay, and 4 quizzes due all on a Thursday and honestly it was worse than midterms or even finals week. I hope everyone is staying healthy and happy during this seemingly never-ending quarantine :)

Final Post

For my final blog post I wanted to bring it back to memes. Right now everyone is going through extremely stressful and unsettling times. What helps me cope with everything is trying to find some lighthearted humour in it all. Anxiety is running high so finding funny things on twitter, tik tok etc has really helped me calm down a bit. I always overthink everything and have always freaked out about illness even before all of this happened. I thought this meme was really relatable and accurate.

Final Post :(

I'd like to talk about one of my many favorite video games. The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion.
GameSpy: The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion - Page 1
It's one of the nerdiest types of games you can play and I think that's why I like it. It's the predecessor to Skyrim, a game we have talked about in class already. It tells hundreds of different stories including almost all of my favorite video game quests. Basically, an amulet is stolen and the emperor is assassinated. These events set in motion a plan by an evil demon like Prince to open up portals from oblivion into the world and take over. That's just the main quest. Te better quests come from joining guilds and talking to strangers. If anyone has any interest in the game I strongly urge you to play it. Or if you like the voice of Patrick Stewart, he voice acts the beginning emperor.



This really made me laugh, I hope it will make you laugh too.

final blog post

I've had this saved in my phone ever since quaratine started and it made me giggle when I saw it. All our animals probably have no clue a global pandemic is going on but are also probably really enjoying the company we've been sharing with them the past month. This also makes me sad though because once were out of quaratine our poor animals are going to wonder where we all went.

Along with that I saw a video that was like "Everyone's going outside. The fridge is fully stocked & our families are spending time together again." This is so true and while being stuck inside it's best to consider our time as "safe inside." Nature takes its course and this could be a sign from the universe that sometimes we need to take a step back from our daily lives and appreciate the things and those around us!


Final Blog Post

For my final blog post, I decided to go the traditional route of a simple meme. This epidemic has been a terrible misfortune causing extreme boredom and of course, cabin fever. I found that this meme related to my given circumstances of being at home, and not in the quiet confines of my school apartment. One good thing about electronic literature, it does not require a classroom. Stay safe everybody, and wash your hands! Here's my meme, enjoy.
