    The Grand Finale!!

    by
    Howdy! (That title makes the topic you are about to learn about far more interesting than it likely is to you. I figured no one would willingly click on something entitleed “The Heat Pump Explained.” But more on that in a quick second…) It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I promise it hasn’t been ...

    Doodly Doo

    by
    Thought I would do a little bit of multitasking in class today and doodle some notes for my final project. Because they were notes for DS106 I was doing them on the fly…. This explains things such as “multipule.” Which I learned is not a word. Womp womp. But here is the doodle version of ...

    The Copy/Remix/Social Evolution Sitch

    by
    I just finished up watching Kirby Ferguson’s “Everything’s a Remix” series. When I first tstarted watching the clips, I thought he was going to be very preachy about open sources an whatnot, but it turns out that he was really low key and seemed to just be offering information to people; leaving it up to ...

    Serenity Now- Rhode Island Style

    by
    Just wrapped up my last video assignment!!!!!!!! This is the “Serenity Now!” assignment (which is worth 3 stars). I chose to do this one because of the title. I judged an assignment by its title, and I’m not afraid to admit it. Seinfeld is quite possibly my favorite tv show ever; I can watch the ...

    Remembrance of Things Past: The Weird Yarn Game

    by
    With the completion of this two-star assignment (bringing me up to a grand total of 16 stars), I think I’m gonna call it quits on video assignments for the week (with hours to spare, wooo!) This assignment was pretty simple. The most challenging part was picking a childhood memory that I wanted to recount (I ...

    Opening Credits Redux: “About a Boy”

    by
    Hey there folks! Just finished up another video assignment! This one was a four-star-er that used up the idea from my pre-production work from last week to redo the opening credits of a movie. For this assignment I stuck with my pre-production plans exactly, which was kind of odd cause I kinda thought that I ...

    AHHHHHH!

    by
    So I just watched Andy Rush’s “Fast, Cheap, and Under Control.” He was fantastically detailed and had an enormous amount of resources that seem to be super useful for video editing business. I was feverishly taking notes the entire time (because I’m a paranoid OCD freak who gets scared she will miss somehting important any moment that I’m ...

    Final Project: Potential Idea

    by
    So for my final project I want to do something with the whole doodle-note idea (like the one that I was inspired to do after watching Guilia Forsythe’s talk on her creative note taking technique). I’m thinking it might be neat if I made a collection of doodle-notes for one subject of classes. One of ...

    by
    Just made up a new design assignment! Yayy! The inspiration of this assignment was my trip to Savannah, Georgia this spring break with my friend Caitlin.
