A Letter to my Alchemist

Devorah Migdelit, Your name means “bee”. A bee is fast moving and impossible to stop. It is determined and strong. The bee harvests the sweetness from one flower and spreads it to all others, just like you. Communicating through you gave me a different kind of voice. It was easier to speak with a stronger set of lungs. I appreciated your letter regarding my activism on social media. It’s one of the few things I do well. I appreciated this […]

Pepsi

It’s interesting after watching the Pepsi commercial that I am actually noticing the conflicts in our daily lives more. My though is… WHAT CAN WE REPLACE PEPSI WITH?? What, instead of Pepsi, can actually help the conflicts the world has. I would like to say acceptance, patience, tolerance, love, and kindness. But I can’t hand someone a can of kindness although it would probably be delicious. The world needs a code word. Or an object. My boyfriend and I have […]

I used to be an Audio Production Major

Yep! You heard it here first, folks. I, Brooke Melissa Levine, was once an aspiring Audio Engineer. I even won a scholarship for it. I know, it’s crazy. So, anyway, when we were talking about this assignment in class, I was very excited to get started! If anyone is reading this, I would like to do a little activity. Please listen to the clip. Each sound describes an activity I do in my day. As you’re listening, write down what […]

Spring Break…”Fo Eva”

If any of you saw the absolute failure of a film “Spring Breakers” starring James Franco, then you get the reference I’m making with the title of this blog post. A few weeks back, I wrote a post called Catch Up where I caught up on what I had missed the week before and let you all in on the insanity of my life. Well, here we are again. First of all, let me say that I appreciate the opportunity […]

Chaos? Order? What Do you MEME?

I actually love memes. Like, I use them very frequently. In face, I will see someone make a face and come up with a meme caption in my head. I really love memes. But anyway, we did an exercise in class that put us in order from chaotic to orderly. This was great because it made me feel better that other people are also not totally on track so I felt ever so slightly less dysfunctional. I was smack dab […]

Sounds, Sounds, Everywhere a Sound

Week 5: Can you hear me now? Not a lot of people know this, but before I was an Education major, I spent five years studying audio production and I was actually pretty good about it. I’m not trying to toot my own horn here but…beep beep. I had a major assignment due for a college professor years ago that involved adding sound to a muted scene and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in school. […]

Ah Netprov…what a Magical thing

During week 4 of class, we had a lot of fun. First, we did a Netprov exercise. Basically, we all stood up and watched the screen in front of us which showed almost like a slide show of pictures. When the first picture appeared, the first person started off a story, something they thought would make sense with the picture. As the pictures changed, so did the story. Once the first picture was replaced by the next, it was the […]

Week 4: Catch Up

For those of you who don’t know me, I would love to share a little something about myself. I am a busy busy bee! In fact, I have both an English name (Brooke) and a Hebrew name, which is Devorah. In Hebrew, Devorah means bumble bee so it is only fit that I should have a hectic schedule and a great love for honey! So, here’s an inside look into my life. I work full time and usually pull at […]

DDA 38 Your Ornamental Soul

My boyfriend and I have been together for four years. When we first met, I had just decided to drop out of school and he had just found out that he was accepted into a study abroad program in Prague, Czech Republic. We met in November, 2012. Not only did he travel to Israel for a month in December, but when he came back, he was in the US for two weeks before he spent four months in Prague and […]

DDA39 Occulta Hominum

So, I don’t encounter many faces in the inanimate objects around my house but there are distinct in my fireplace that I’ve noticed since I was a child. This is my fireplace.  My fireplace is made of several bricks of different colors. From this angle, it may seem like your every day run of the mill fireplace but let’s look more closely. And crown thy good with firewood! Yep, that, ladies and gentlemen, is the greatest country on earth embedded […]

Fire, Earth, Water, Air – It’s “Element”ary

I walked outside and braved the cold weather. I turned towards the sun to shed some light on my numb face. With a lighter in my right hand and tinder in my left, I knelt down to the earth and examined my materials. With a flick of my thumb, the lighter would ignite, spreading wild blue and orange flames across yesterday’s business section and I would have created fire. But as the flickers of indigo and red danced in the […]

WTF is Alchemy?

Seriously what is it?? Simply put, Alchemy was known as the process of turning led into gold but that’s not what we’re talking about here. Let’s look a little deeper. Why would someone want to turn to led into gold? Well that’s easy, wealth. But again, let’s not be shallow. There’s a deeper element. Wealth can equate to bettering one’s self. Wealth can mean improvement, health, vitality, and happiness. A true Alchemist is not interested in making money off of […]
