My name is Eric Nichols and this blog is for a visual arts class, film in social context. I'll talk about that a little later, but for now some stuff about myself. I'm kinda a dork. I'm not really an artist or creative, but I find it interesting. I'm also kinda drunk right now. When asked, a friend said my fun fact about me is that I don't have one. I am vanilla. I don't disagree with this assessment. I'm a pretty boring individual, but have accepted this and cool with it. I also fucking love pterodactyls. Easily my favorite dinosaur. Even better than velociraptors. Which are pretty cool.
