This is my individual podcast section for my news capstone class. It wasn’t in the final product, but this is what I originally was going to submit. It’s a VERY rough draft, but it didn’t come out too bad! Anyway, this is what singles in Dallas and Denton thought of COVID testing before meeting dates or considering more dates with potential matches. Full Story coming soon on my journalist portfolio.
I know 2020 has been filled with insanity, misery, and, for many people, loss. I was so consumed by everybody else’s pain and complaints, it affected my own outlook and I was appreciating nothing.
Until this week.Continue reading “My Life So Far”
So, this is just a personal reflection of my concerns/fears for this upcoming semester considering we’re going through these most unprecedented times right now.Continue reading “Fall 2020 College Outlook: RVW Edition”
The topic for the 3rd week’s lecture was gender and sexuality. I was looking most forward to this topic and thought it would generate a good discussion during our live class.
I was wrong. Yes, it was as interesting and enlightening as I imagined. I learned about muxes in Mexico, third genders in India, two-spirit Native Americans, and other trans and third gender people across culures.

I’m a sucker for the romance genre, so I knew this movie would be a hit with me. A friend even recommended it as a movie she would see again, but aside from her, nobody in my social circles was talking about “The Photograph.”Continue reading ““The Photograph” Movie Review”
It was finals week and my last day in town before winter break. There was only one thing I had been looking forward to all week, and it was this night, my last night in Denton.
I had been talking to this guy for a while who I really liked, and when I say I would do anything just to spend more time with him, I mean ANYTHING. So I figured I’d make the most out of my time and go to his brother’s show at this little bar on the edge of town. For the sake of this post, I’ll refer to this guy as Y.
I was going to write about it in short, but I found an entry I had in my phone from that exact day. This is how it went:

March 6, the Friday before my spring break began, I worked from noon to around 5, got a pizza for dinner, and took the bus to town for a fun night out. Little did I know that would be my last shift, last time dining in, or having any late night fun in my college town before the pandemic tightened its grip on what was my normal.Continue reading “Being a College Student during a Pandemic”
It didn’t dawn on me until later in the fall semester that it was a very bad and very dumb decision not to bring my car to university with me. It dawned on me even more in early February.Continue reading “RVWJC: A Lot of Driving”
