A game about the interaction between a player and a hostile, blinded enemy. Developed with Zack Zhang & Vanessa Briceño as semester-long project - Spring 2014
The player must draw the attention of a large, mechanical monster that guards the mine by making sounds and directing its violence towards her location - using the Boss as a tool and a weapon to escape the hazardous site.

Like when a phrase is stuck in your head but you don’t have any context for it - like how “Things Fall Apart” is a book I have never read and a phrase I will say constantly. The things in life that are right in front of you that you prevent yourself from knowing more about. Look, I have been listening to Rilo Kiley and No Doubt and Gwen Stefani and Jenny Lewis are really similar when you get down to it - strong without being intimidating, vulnerable without being weak. They both understand things fall apart.

It’s been a busy week and I’m gonna go drink hot cocoa on my deck with my cats TTYL
-I went to Urban Outfitters to meet up with my friend Claire after she got off work, but because I hadn’t been to Urban in like 3 years I had no idea where to find her. I finally asked on the men’s floor if someone knew where Claire was and the guy got all snarky and answered “Uh do you mean Grimes? She’s over in sale.” And I thought that was very rude and told him “No I meant Claire, that’s why I didn’t call her Grimes.” When I went to the sale section Claire Boucher/Grimes came running over all happy to see me. I do not have any friends named Claire when I am not dreaming.
-The founder of my company got a dog and opened up a position for anyone at the company who wanted to be his dogsitter. Everyone recommended me because I am so good with animals but I wasn’t sure that it was a position with much room for growth. The founder took me aside and said “look you don’t always have to think about growth, and this dog is really cute” and this somehow came across as the most emotional plea in the world. I likely would have taken the job but my cat started scratching my toes and I woke up. Somewhere out there is a world where Calvin needs a dogsitter, and I hope he finds one.
