    Five Card Flickr Story

    Here’s the link to my Five Card Flickr Story! …and here’s some background information: Okay, so my best friend and I have nicknames for each other, I call her Zambookie, and she calls me Pepito – all we do is laugh, so maybe that helps explain the ridiculous nicknames? Anyway, I’d say (and probably anyone ...

    Disciplinary Reading

    I thought it was extremely interesting how storytelling can be used as a new method of psychotherapy, although it didn’t surprise me. Even if you’re not in a therapy session, reading books is a way to lose yourself in another world, and either live through a character, or relate to characters that you feel go ...

    Thoughts about the final project…

    I’m not sure what I’m going to do for my final project, but my number one passion in life has always been gymnastics, so I’m thinking I’ll probably end up doing something with that.

    Firefighter Safety

    The reading on Firefighter safety emphasized the importance of sharing stories.

    Web 2.0 & Creative Commons

    I thought the Web 2.0 article was alright. It was extremely long, and I got a little drowsy along the way, but I thought there was a lot of good information in there. It’s obviously true that society in general is continuing to become more and more digital. (There are certain areas that fall under ...

    Animated Gif

    My animated gif is from the movie Pineapple Express. I chose it because it’s my favorite part, where they’re trying to destroy their cell phones so that Ted and the police officers working for him are unable to track them… I laugh hysterically every time I watch it.

    Set up!

    So, our first blog post is supposed to be about setting up our websites… I’m hosting my website through a friend’s server, so I had to go about setting my database a little differently than shown in class. I just had to separately download WordPress, and then use phpmyadmin to create a database/user with a ...
