Storybook Plan

Planning, planning, planning...

For my storybook, I think that I will attempt to "build" the universe by retelling different creation stories one at a time, building on top of each other until we have a completed universe with the Earth, life, and humans. 

Some stories that I think I will be using:
The Separation of Heaven and Earth

I have yet to decide if the stories will be connected by some overarching storyline. I think, perhaps, I might try to have them all related by the same storyteller. This is something that I will decide soon.

I think that the main things that I want to learn about (and, subsequently, my readers to learn about) is the variety of creation stories and the idea that everyone can have a unique interpretation or idea of how everything that is came to be. In my opinion, understanding how different cultures and religions believe things came into being is one of the best ways to get to the heart of a culture or religion's belief system and understanding of the world. With this storybook, I hope to contribute just a bit to this understanding while, hopefully, also providing some level of entertainment.

Hobbies, Hopes, and... I'm Out of H Words || An Introduction

Everyone keeps telling me to change my major... Welcome to the blog! My name is Rhys and I am a senior Psychology major! When I'm not scrambling to complete my degree, I work as a 3D printing student specialist for OU Libraries and as a lab assistant for the OU Visual Neuroscience Laboratory.  I'm looking forward to graduating this summer after a study abroad trip to Scotland. 
When I'm not at work or school, I spend my time entertaining a variety of hobbies including programming, circuit building, 3D art, animation, and design, 3D printing, video production, visual effects, and cooking! I spend quite a lot of time working on all of these things, which has led to a running joke among my family and friends that I declared the wrong major.  3D World Animation
I'm always looking to learn new skills. I honestly love learning and school. In fact, I plan on pursuing a career in academia as a psychology researcher. Essentially, I plan on never leaving school! After graduation…

Home Away from Home || Some of My Favorite Places to Be

Seem a little random don't they? Well if I had to choose some of my favorite places, I would have to choose one that was an amazing travel destination and two that are like my homes away from home.
The amazing travel destination would be the island of Iraklia in Greece! Quite a place to spend a 20th birthday.

The next place is actually oddly specific. Myers Hall at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA holds many fond memories for me and will always feel like a second home, even though it has been many years since I've been there.

The last place that feels like a home away from home to me is Santa Fe, New Mexico. My parents are originally from Santa Fe and Albuquerque and we visit constantly. In fact, as of the time I am writing this, we plan on visiting again in just a little over a week.
