Progress Report

I have been working on my story and creating my GIPHS. It has been fun playing with the animations and seeing how they can be used in various platforms. So I don’t want to spoil the post for next week, but I can say that this creative writting has inspired my inquiring mind into the […]

“When You Can Never Leave Your WhatsApp or Facebook Group”

“Do you agree to the Terms of Service?” I took a cursory look at the Terms of Service:1.) Use respectful language.2.) Be respectful of others.3.) No profanity. Blah, blah, blah. I quickly clicked, Accept. I wanted to be part of a social community during a period of isolation (quarantine, shelter-in-place, and stay-at-home). I wanted to […]
