P2 Riddles of riddles

By : Hannah Freudenthaler

One sheet, two-sheet, three sheets or four…some use less and some use more. What am I?

Paper towels

What has arms and legs, but no head?

But a chair!

What can’t be burned in a fire nor drowned in water?

Nice ice

I have a big mouth and I’m quite a load. I’m not gossip, but I get involved in everyone’s dirty business. What am I?

The thing I should use more often than I do, the washer.

Stepping out? Wear me first! I’ll protect your feet from the worst.

Sound shoes to protect the freaky feet.

Tall and strong, I stay outside. The sun, the rain, they’re by my side. I give birds homes and help you breathe. I even give you fruit to eat.

How about a hand made tree?

Here I come and there I go. I move really fast, anywhere I go. That’s why you take me when you’re in a hurry. When I zoom by, I might look blurry.

My dream car… 🙂

Kick up your feet, if you will. I’ll keep you company through Netflix and chill. Though you might not notice, I’m always here, to hold your zines, your snacks, and beer.

The best seat in the house!

You say we’re pals, that we’re best friends. But only until the morning ends. You say I give you fuel for the day. And when we’re done, you’re gone away.

Nothing can replace a good mug of tea.

Don’t frown at me, I made it clear. Won’t make a difference if you’re near. Just stand in front and I’ll show you exactly how the world will know you.

High five! We did it!

P1 About Me

This is me at the coast this last summer

Hello there! My name is Hannah Freudenthaler and I will tell you a little about me. My pronouns are she/they, I’m extremely introverted and still learning how to adult. I’ve decided to come back to school after this cursed year off because honestly, I don’t want to be stuck with the job I have and I want to do things that I actually enjoy. As a grocery store deli worker throughout this entire pandemic, I have seen people at their worst over not being able to get roast beef sliced and co-workers at their best when we were short-handed and overwhelmed. It’s rather surprising to me that sometimes customers can forget that the people serving them are actual people, with feelings, and we can’t control when we get more ham in stock or the fact that something was discontinued or we don’t do custom made sandwiches any more – go to Subway if it’s that upsetting. I will say that some people have been super understanding in the fact that we were and still are understaffed; I had a really nice lady waiting about ten minutes for me to be able to help her get some salads, and she and the customer next to her gave me a round of applause for running back and forth across the department helping people all by myself since I couldn’t accept her money.

I spent a week and a half in Hawaii over the summer and it was super fun! I will say that if you ever get the chance to visit Kauai, Backcountry Adventures rafting is a must! They take you on a drive over private property which offers up wonderful views, and to the river you will be rafting on that is the water supply for the neighboring town of Kapa’a. You will then take a splash in some refreshing water and go through five tunnels that were hand dug by sugar cane plantation workers back when that was Hawaii’s main source of income. Fun fact about Kauai, it is home to hundreds of thousands of feral chickens. Apparently, there were hurricanes in the ’80s and ’90s that set loose domesticated fowl into the forest with the wildfowl. Now you can’t go more than a few minutes without seeing one of these feathered creatures walking down the road since they have no natural predators on the island besides people and cars. Kauai is called the Garden Island because it has a much denser forest than any other island, but I think a name change may be in its future.

An Introduction to Myself

An Introduction to Myself

Hello My name is Noah!  I was born in Flowood Mississippi and moved to Oregon when I was 4 years old. I am in the animation program at lane. I like to spend my free time animating and playing with my niece ( I am a very proud auntie) as well as working in my garden and going on walks. I am the owner of several chickens 1 hive of bees and a very old cat who is much loved. My cat named Martina is a 21 year old tuxedo who is in need of kitty glasses.   In 2016 I spent 10 months in New Zealand backpacking and hitchhiking around both Islands. I have some very fun hitchhiking stories including the one where I got picked up by a possible religious cult ( “community”).

After traveling around New Zealand I landed in Wellington, the windiest city in the world  and I studied design for the stage and screen at toi whakaari ( pronounced fukari ). I came back to the United States and worked for lane education district services with life skills students. I am also a major nerd. I like  everything from Harry Potter to The disastrous life of saiki k. As well as discovering new and fun things to bake.  

With my animation degree I would love to get a job that focuses on character design and creation. If I could get a job at laika Studios I would be over the moon. I look forward to getting to know all of you over term.

P1 And now…me

My name is Robert Stirling, but you can call me Rob. Originally from Ohio, I’ve lived in Oregon for almost 10 years and I have long since fallen in love with this area. I am the eldest of four and I try my best to be a role model for my siblings while I try to figure it all out for myself at the same time. I am a street photographer and the drummer for the band Nevermix. I graduated from Churchill High school, went to Portland State University for a year, and thereupon flunked out of said university.

I started photography in high school and I have greatly enjoyed the learning process as I continue to find new ways to use my equipment. It’s been a great way to express myself as I go to go through new life experiences in this very hectic world. Aside from that, however, I do not have too much experience with this media format. Most of my artistic experience is a pencil and paper, as well as playing the drums. I am excited to learn more about the medium as well as branching out into others. Above all, though, I look forward to learning how I can improve my skills as a photographer and as an artist.
