    Radio Bumper


    This is my first time ever creating a Radio Bumper and I have to say that I was very nervous do this. I had to re-record my voice so many times. I am someone that does not enjoy hearing their voice after being recorded but as I figured out what …

    Radio Idea


    For the Radio Show idea, I think it would be a good idea to do discuss language acquisition or the the difference between Spanish or English. I feel like not enough people know about the language acquisition process and Linguistics in general. Language acquisition is an art in itself. From …

    Little Sounds


    I mean, have you ever watched a movie without sound? It helps the tempo and pace of a film. For instance, think about thriller movies. I believe that they use sound to increase one’s anxiety. Listening to noises or sounds most definitely can change the mood. Say if one was …

    Animal Who?


    I attempted the Honest Video Game Covers Assignments! I really had to think about what game I felt had one of the most deceptive titles. So, I chose to change the Animal Crossing game. I feel that Animal Crossing title should really be called “Fish and Dig for Fossils” because …

    I decided to attempt the Favorite Movie Quote Assignment! For this assignment, I chose my favorite line and photo from my favorite movie, the Wizard of Oz. I chose this photo because, it reminds me of a happy family and how Dorothy and her friends stuck together through thick and …

    Kidd Designer


    Honestly, when I first hear the word graphic design, my mind automatically thinks of like interior designing or create some type of logos for companies. However, after reading this article, I understand that it is used as a strategy for problem solving. I have not really taken the time to …

    Best Sports Play Ever!


    I remember watching this during the College Softball Series back in June. In my opinion, this was one of the best plays I have seen. It is not easy to catch the ball, set your feet, and make a good throw to get the lead runner out. I can only …

    Premie Celebration


    For this assignment, I had to create a gif of a person “celebrating too early.” Typically, when I think of someone celebrating too early, I tend to think of athletes. However, I feel that choosing an athlete for this gif assignment would be expected. So, I decided to research people …

    Increasing my Skills!


    In keeping with the your story/our story theme, use photos you have taken, or photos you have, as much as you can, but focus on how the images function as photographs rather than your personal connection to the subjects or events. How many of the points below can you find? How do …

    Pictures Speak Louder than Words!


    Realistically, I do not have much experience taking photos. I mean, if you count screenshots as me taking photos, I take plenty of photos. I typically use the portrait mode setting if I attempt to take a decent/professional-looking photo with my phone. When looking at the limited photos that I …

    The Photoblitz challenge was very interesting to say the least. I definitely think my creativity and my photography skills increased. To me, perspective and interpretation were key elements in completing these tasks. I definitely enjoyed being able to kind of step out of the box and just be creative while …

    Pitch Perfect Analysis


    I have chosen to do my story analysis on Pitch Perfect. Pitch Perfect is a musical comedy that was first introduced in 2012. I liked the pacing of the movie. It was not too fast or too slow. The characters were awesome, even the antagonists were enjoyable. It was never …
