How do I prevent a run on sentence?
It's easy to overcomplicate writing. Writing is just another way of communicating and it's important to aim at clear communication. When writing is overcomplicated, it often manifests in terms of a run on sentence. Run-on sentences are often trying to communicate too many ideas in a single thought. Learning how to identify all of the ideas you're trying to communicate is an important step in breaking down and creating space and sentences for all of the ideas in your run-on sentence.

How can we do activism without sacrificing our own bodies?
Activism is rewarding, but also difficult on the body. Bell Hooks is famous for identifying this in her phrase, "Elders, not Martyrs." Some ways to preserve our health and wellness is to learn the importance of community-centered contracts (done by collectives like the Combahee River Collective in the 1970s) that respect boundaries and serve to ground each person in the group. Another way is to study criticism philosophies, which can teach us how to both criticize and receive criticism productively.
How can photoshop help to create an application-worthy visual portfolio?
In our lives, it may be difficult to create that perfect photography space. There are always constraints like time, money, ability, etc. It is important to learn how to integrate all of your knowledge to create a strong portfolio. Photoshop is one tool that can contribute to this. Photoshop can fix things like vignettes, cropping, color, exposure, etc - problems that occur due to the real life constraints of photographing artwork.
