Aloha, Annyeong, Shalom, etc.

Am I a dork who likes taking bit words from other languages in an attempt to sound worldly and intelligent? who has some complex (but not really) conception in mind for the creation of the title of a blog post that could either never make sense or be so obvious that this sentence is rendered moot? who procrastinates incessantly while telling herself that she works better under the pressure of a time crunch and that it’s like a drug to […]

Too Many Cooks?

Oh goodness gracious me where does the time go? And me, where did I go? Tis been a fortnight since my last entry. I gotta stop writing blog posts in Shakespeare class. Again, I’m late with this entry. Good God. Also that title. Ha. Ha. How long ago was I talking about layers of fiction? Layers are fun to talk about. Layers of meaning. Layers of emotion. Layers of musical composition. Cake layers. I’m hungry. Food. Jam. Ah, here’s the jam of […]

Short n’ Sweet (n’ Fangirl-y)

Lull week, but I still wanna throw something up. But, golly, friends, I can’t say I know much of what to post this week. I’ll try my darndest, tho. But first of all, a song that’s stuck in my head. Also, the live version of it. It’s a little more somber than last week’s, but eh, it’s a rainy day. In other unrelated-to-netnarr news, if anyone likes thriller/crime dramas with timey-wimey shenanigans, give Tunnel a look-see. It’s somewhat graphic, but it’s […]

Storytime, though not of the Thomas Sanders variety.

Hey friends! No intro jibber-jabber this week—gonna jump right into the fray since I’m *checks watch* HOO BOY I’M LATE LOOKIT THAT. Before I let you go, though, this lil number is stuck in my head. Feel free to give it a listen. It’s boppy, despite the name. Misnomer alert (ah, I learned that term from A Series of Unfortunate Events, a la the Incredibly Deadly Viper. Good book series. Thoughts of the netflix series make me pull an N face, though.). This […]

Listen. No, really.

{I’m gonna start doing a thing. At the moment I’m jamming to this little DAY6 beauty and I feel like sharing. It’s so upbeat and happy… ugh, I love it. Feel free to listen as you read! Or not! I don’t know your music taste, haha. Won’t hurt my feelings any if you don’t. I’ll only cry a little bit. Enjoy the post!} And we’re back! Y’know, I kind of feel like my Spring Break wasn’t much of a break. First of all, […]

this post, like the world, is a chaotic mess

Whoop-dee-doo guess who had to leave class early again because someone decided to qualify for playoff games so someone had to trill a piccolo on the sidelines. First italicized someone: my school’s girls’ basketball team.  (they lost) Second italicized someone: moi. Hoooo boy I have a story about right after I left class but I think my blood pressure will just skyrocket if I tell it in full again so I’ll keep it short: I had a headache when I left class, and […]

Layers of Fiction

Any Layers of Fear fans here? No? Great, same here. That game is spooksville, man, and I’ve only watched Jacksepticeye play it like… once. Or maybe it was Markiplier? I don’t remember. Golly, look at that. Links already. Startin’ off strong. Now if I could keep that rolling by figuring out how exactly to progress from here, that’d be great. Stream of consciousness, don’t fail me now. [[Spoiler: it fails me.]] Oh! Before I forget! The four icon story from last blog […]

I’m in Love with the Shape of … Stories

ANOTHER QUALITY TITLE. Ten points for getting the reference. Before I start ranting about that, though, a few bits of intro shtuff: Ever have a moment when you really really really feel like you don’t want to do a thing… but at the same time you (oh so secretly) REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT TO DO THE THING? Congratulations, you now know the feeling I had when we did netprov (basically story improv) in my NetNarr class. It was hilarious—the confusion, the laughs, the bleak […]

Bots, Pics & Jams

I’m starting off this week’s blog with a bit of advice: Charge your laptop. Yep. Charge. Your. Laptop. Charge your laptop before you—actually, know what? No conditions. No “before you” or “when you”—no. Just. Charge your laptop. Always. Keep that thing plugged in whenever you can. Why, Masooch? you must be thinking. Why tell us such a common-sense thing like charge your—well my friends it’s because I forgot to charge my laptop before my NetNarr class and it died while I was […]

Elementary, My Dear Masooch.

I’ll have you know that it was physically painful to write that title, but I have nothing better, so here we are. Cringing together. Yes, I’m disappointed in me, too. The creativity only gets better from here, my friends. Alright, first thing that came to mind when I saw this week’s blog prompt of the four elements was Avatar: The Last Airbender, another amazing show (Surprise! Masooch’s head jumps right to fandoms!). A classic animated series, if you will, from back in […]

That Stalker, Alchemy

Hi! First blog post! Sick! Basic intro: I’m Masooch. Not really an owl. I write. I procrastinate. I only have some semblance of an idea of what I’m doing right now. But never mind that. Alright, the title sounds weird, but bear with me here. I have a point. I’m hoping to get a video up for this first post—y’know, BE OUTGOING! SOCIAL! OPINIONATED! UWAA~!—but I might as well type out a back-up plan considering I’m both overly optimistic and an […]
