Week 4 Lab || Tech Tip: Twine

So...Twine. Hypertext stories with divergent paths and multiple endings are really fun. I still remember when I had those actual physical books where you could follow different paths and get different endings by simply turning to different pages as instructed. Honestly, they were some of my favorite books from my childhood. I delighted in trying to work out all the possible endings and always had a lot of fun doing so.

So with Twine, I felt strangely nostalgic. However, I was also very excited. I love the idea of writing my own story with a complex diverging path that people can spend hours exploring. In fact, I began this assignment at around noon and have been playing around with Twine for about 6 hours now. In that time, I wrote and discarded a lot of ideas and ended settling on a simple little story for now.

If you're curious to check it out, I've actually embedded the story into a blog post! Just look for the Twine label on my main page. Give it a play and comment on this post with your opinions about it!

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.
