Author's selfieToday my focus has been mostly on my classes. I have several assignments due today. Since I worked yesterday, I have today off. It’s important to have a balance between work and everything else.

I spent the first part of the morning (after my walk and sketching) working on a Scratch game, Demystifying Dewey. It’s a simple Dewey-based matching game with a simple gameplay mechanic. Different badges are awarded at the end, based on the player’s score.

I spent more time than necessary on the assignment. I created custom animations and sounds. As my first attempt at using Scratch, I think it went okay! I would have loved to have this sort of thing when I was a kid.

I’m calling this guy Newt Scratchmander.
