New Year, New Me? Let’s Hope So…

As 2018 comes swiftly to a close, 2019 is just around the corner. It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating my birthday. Sure, I celebrated it alone and spent the whole day watching Defunctland on YouTube and painting, but I celebrated.

I suppose I should add that my birthday is in January and I got snowed in, hence why I stayed home and did little to nothing.

Still, as I turned 23, I was hoping 2018 would finally be my year. My year to succeed and to be happy with what I was doing with my life.

Comic Books and Graphic Novels – My Personal History

(The day of writing this blog I learned that Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95. No matter if you are a DC or Marvel fan, no one can deny the contributions made by Stan to the comics industry. Stan, you were a legend of the industry, a creative genius, and beloved by all who love comic books. No one will be forgetting you any time soon. Rest easy, and excelsior!)

From TF2 to Fatalities Galore! My Personal History with Video Games

Hoo boy, do I love video games.

I mean, I worked at an on-campus video game lounge during my time at Oneonta (shout out to the Dragon’s Lair) so yeah, I guess you can say I love video games.

Okay, just like with my horror blog post, I guess working at the Lair doesn’t really show off my love of video games. Well, maybe it does, I’m not really sure. Still, I love playing video games. I find it to be a great stress reliever.

Here’s the thing though: I didn’t start playing video games frequently until college.

I Told You I Was A Vampire Person…and It Really Shows in My Book Collection

Oh man, I love books.

I’ve been reading since I was three, and I had a college reading level in 6th grade, so yeah, you could say that I really love to read.

All I read anymore is books centered around horror, thrillers, witchcraft, strange history and true crime. All of which are perfect reads for October, in my opinion.

What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Whenever I watch Scream, the one question that stands out is the trademark question of the film series.

What’s your favorite scary movie?

If I had to answer that question, and my life depended on it, I would be dead. Why? Because I have way too many favorites, that’s why! Continue reading “What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?”

The Horror Nights Fandom is Something Else….in the Best Way Possible.

Halloween Horror Nights.

If you’re a die-hard horror fan, or just love getting the absolute crap scared out of you, then you’ve most definitely heard of Universal Studios’ annual Halloween event. Starting out as Fright Nights in 1991, Horror Nights has become one of the best Halloween events in the U.S., and Singapore and Japan too, it seems.

Kat’s Thoughts: Halloween & Horror

It’s October 1st, and you all know what that means. The spooky time is upon us.

Yes, folks, I’m talking about that most wonderful time of year, Halloween! My favorite holiday is fast approaching, and I do mean fast. I mean, seriously, I feel like September just flew by. Not that it bothers me, since Halloween is on its way. I love this time of year for many different reasons. The costumes, the Halloween shopping options (here’s looking at you, Spirit Halloween), the events (and coverage of said events), all the horror movies and specials on TV, and it’s the one time of year I actually feel normal.

Well, Well, Well…

It certainly has been a while since I’ve updated my WordPress. My apologies to anyone who follows me, although I doubt anyone noticed I was gone.

Well, from now on I plan on updating much more often. I am now a college graduate and working out in the real world. So most of my post might be about that, most might cover the things I love or just thoughts I have.

I’m starting fresh with this page, but I’m not deleting my old posts. Well, maybe the ones from my Advanced Graphics class I took, I’m not sure you.

All I’ll say is this…I’m back.

Independent Project

For my independent project, I worked with my father to create a new logo for his hunting club, Swing Gate. The club has been around since 1928 and was originally started by members of my family and family friends. Today, it is still going with my dad acting as president. When I was in high school, I designed a logo for a sticker for their trucks. With this, I wanted to revamp the logo and expand it beyond just a sticker. I talked with my dad on several occasions and he said he wanted to see a new logo, along with a t-shirt, hats, and mugs. After finishing the logo and getting it approved by him, I added it to the desired objects. I showed my dad, as well as other members of the club, and they all approved of it. I was given no budget for this project, unfortunately. Despite this setback, the project went well and I had no other issues.
