2016-2017 Staff Picks

  We’re closing in on the end of the 2016-2017 school year, you guys! This year’s issue of Sanskrit was a roaring success, if I do say so myself. (And for those of you who stopped by the gallery last month, we actually did not hire that one guy to play the piano, but man […]

I’d Rather Cry in a Mansion

I’d Rather Cry in a Mansion

According to an age old aphorism, money can’t buy happiness. Let’s imagine for an instant that this is true: I’m guessing the majority of people would still rather cry in a mansion than out on the streets. Money may not guarantee happiness, but it does purchase security that allows for soul searching in a way […]

Tierra’s Met Adventures

Tierra’s Met Adventures

I recently got to paint the streets of New York City red as I explored the city on foot (and by Uber) last week. One of my last stops was the Metropolitan Museum of Art at Fifth Avenue, which is honestly my dream location in terms of where I would like to work in America after […]

My Three Favourite Live-Action Fairytales

My Three Favourite Live-Action Fairytales

1. The Princess Bride (1987) The first movie on my list is a true classic. The Princess Bride (1987) is about a woman who agrees to marry a king after losing her true-love, only for said true-love to pop back up just in time to start some drama before the wedding.

Another Excerpt from Stereotypical Fantasy Romance Novel

Another Excerpt from Stereotypical Fantasy Romance Novel

“This is an awful idea Kasper,” Raelyn whispered as she clung desperately to her boyfriend’s arm who led them through the cornfield. “Don’t be chicken Ray, it’s just a party; it’ll be fun,” Kasper drawled as he smiled and dragged his girlfriend with him. “No it won’t! I get a really bad vibe from this […]

Eyes that Reflect

Eyes that Reflect

Eyes That Reflect   I don’t ask questions. Not because I understand everything, I don’t. Rather, I lack the key necessary to unlock them: Curiosity. Every day I walk on a trivial world with billions of others excited about this promotion or that new clothing item or a chipped nail or the sun tickling their […]

“Shitty First Drafts”

“Shitty First Drafts”

The following is a reflection I wrote on the essay “Shitty First Drafts” by author Anne Lamott. The full essay can be found here: https://wrd.as.uky.edu/sites/default/files/1-Shitty%20First%20Drafts.pdf I hate drawing in front of others. I hate the “fantasy” onlookers tend to have about creation: that successful creators, whether they are artists or writers or musicians or something else entirely, are […]

Fun Facts About the Real Hercules

Fun Facts About the Real Hercules

We all know Disney’s Hercules: the shy red-head with muscles of steel and a heart of gold. The real Hercules, however, was perhaps one of the least child-friendly figures in Greek mythology. As an avid watcher of  Hercules (1997)  (by avid I mean a couple of times a month) I was totally devastated when I […]

Bad Old Poetry I

Bad Old Poetry I

Soak Me in Your Tears (September 8th, 2012) It rains and it pours. I watch with hopeful eyes as the storm pounds harder and harder. The wind picks up sending the tears of the sky on my skin. Cool, crisp drops pound my skin, leaving it’s mark on me and it’s purpose on my clothes. […]

Slammin’ Poetry: Adrienne Rich

Slammin’ Poetry: Adrienne Rich

I have a love/hate relationship with poetry; I enjoy reading poetry on my own terms rather than reading and analyzing poetry in my English classes. After an entire semester of reading Shakespearean sonnets, I was obviously shocked to find out that my English professor would be hosting an in-class poetry slam to conclude our section.
