Hi, I’m Winnie, a freshman at UCI, and welcome to my blog! Throughout the year, this blog will reflect upon my increasing knowledge of the theme: the Empire and its Ruins. This topic will cover multiple aspects of my daily life, modern events, and the material I’m learning for Humanities Core. Thus, I will be interpreting various texts, films, and visuals. If you have any feedback on my writing, feel free to give me pointers, suggestions…any constructive criticism is welcome!
