    Evelyn Sparrow is Here!


    My design for my character, Evelyn Sparrow, came from the fact that she is a college student at the moment. She dresses to fit in, but she also adds a bit of her own flare. She likes the plain and simple look of a t-shirt and jeans, but she’s also …

    The Fifth Closing



    This week had been a bit of a struggle for me, but I also feel like I learned a lot this week. I had never done anything with audio before, so I hadn’t been looking forward to doing this part. However, I ended up having fun figuring out how to …

    Reading and Resource Reflection


    I really enjoyed Jad Abumrad’s videos on audio storytelling. Like he said, I didn’t like audio storytelling at first. He explained that it lacked, but it was what it lacked in that made it so great. While it’s not like a movie where you can watch what is happening, audio …

    Don’t You Worry Child Mashup


    For the last Audio Assignment for this week, I chose to do the Original and Cover Mashup assignment. I chose this assignment because I thought it would be really cool to hear both versions of the song over top of each other. I knew it would be weird sounding, but …

    Call to Sanghwa


    For one of my Audio Assignments I decided to do the Call Me, Beep Me assignment. This assignment involved choosing a character from a story I have read, watched, or heard during this class so far. I decided to do a call from Seong-kyeong to Sanghwa after she arrived in …

    Broadcast from Forreston Grade School, Illinois


    Forreston Grade School Broadcast: https://frequency2156.com/signal/531

    Creating my broadcast from Forreston, Illinois, was actually quite the adventure. After getting everything downloaded and ready to go, I had to think about how I wanted my broadcast to be. I don’t know what kind of apocalypse I’m in (it seems rather war-like from …

    Meeting Evelyn Sparrow


    Evelyn Sparrow was just a girl that grew up being defined by her last name, her parents’ name. They had been well known in the small town she was taken to at 15 years old. It was just a town over from where she was born, but they all knew. …

    May the Fourth be with Us


    This marks the end of the fourth week in The End!

    I had a lot of fun with this week’s assignments, but I also believe this was definitely not my best week. I had a few technical issues this week with downloading things and getting things uploaded onto WordPress, but …

    My Film Reflection with GIF


    La Jetée was a very interesting short film in how it was created and how the storyline was shown. The saying of “a picture holds a thousand words” can really be seen in this film. As it is made up of photographs instead of instead of actual film, it was …

    I’ve Been Thinking… Thinking About Photos


    Reading through the Tips for Better Photography page was actually really helpful. I’ve always been more of an “accidently good” photographer, so learning techniques and tips for actually becoming a good photographer is something that has interested me for a while. I only ever use my phone though, simply because …

    My “Places of Peace”


    I made my collage of my “places of peace” with some photos I took of places near my old homes and my current one.  The top one is from the woods near my current home, the middle is from the street of the house I lived in before my current …

    Before and After the Apocalypse


    So I had a lot fun with this assignment and trying to figure out how I wanted to do it. I decided to take some pictures for this assignment after I took the pictures for the Photoblitz challenge. Out in the woods, I was walking along some natural trails and …

    The End of a Busy Third Week



    There was a lot of writing that had to be done this week, and I was unfortunate enough to have a busy week outside of school. I was able to do some of the smaller stuff throughout the week, but I had to keep pushing the actual writing further …

    “When you feel defensive, examine what you fear”


    “When you feel defensive, examine what you fear” and “Generosity and perfection are your everlasting goals”.

    Looking out at the hazy horizon, my breath stuttered and my chest tightened. The lookout is still ablaze on my left, but my eyes have become unseeing, my body unresponsive. This wasn’t how this …

    I’ll be here


    I’ll be here.

    I’ll be right here.

    Waiting for you.

    It hasn’t been too long. At least I don’t think it has. It’s gotten dark and cold without you here to flip the switch. The day you left, you left in quite a hurry. You didn’t look at me as …

    There Will Come Soft Rains (Alternate Ending)


    In the nursery, the jungle burned. Blue lions roared, purple giraffes bounded off. The panthers ran in circles, changing color, and ten million animals, running before the fire, vanished off towards a distant streaming river…

    Ten more voices died. In the last instant under the fire avalanche, there was …

    Short Stories Reflection


    This week I read There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury and The Defenders by Philip K. Dick. I honestly picked these two because I liked the titles, but I ended up only really liking one of them. I really enjoyed reading There Will Come Soft Rains because it …

    Second Week of The END



    The second week of The End has come to… an end.

    When I first saw everything we had to do this week, I was a bit overwhelmed. However, once I got started, I actually really enjoyed doing the work. I’m really happy I can be in such a creative …

    Reading Reflection


    While watching the End Day short film, I really enjoyed watching and making the connections between the people in it. Despite it being five different versions of an apocalypse, they were all similar in some way until the very last one. The first four didn’t directly affect the Doctor besides …

    It’s Too Late Now


    Looking up in the sky, her breathing slowed.  Above the roaring in her ears, it was the only sound she could hear. The pounding of her heart caused her chest to ache dully, but it was the only thing she could feel. Eyes glistening and sweat forming on her already …

    Walking Straight into The END


    So the first week of The END is almost officially over!

    To say I’m a little lost may be the best way to describe this week. (And we’ve only just started!) I have never really been the type of person to have social media. I know how it works to …
