    Super supper and small talk.


    My ideal radio show….. sure I’ve thought about this before, but getting class credit and the opportunity to give it whirl – how intriguing.

    So what would the radio show look like? I’m sure most people find their friends fascinating, otherwise why are you friends? But of course, I believe …

    Weekly Summary #4


    Wow was this week jam-packed. Then again, I might have become a little obsessive with the assignments this week. Like, say I’ll work on a project for one hour and spend four hours kind of obsessive – but that passion, right? Right?!

    Anyway…… I started the week blogging about “…

    Photoblitzing……. or bombing….


    Challenge: Take seven photos assignment that were randomly generated within 20 minutes


    Make a photo of something upside down that is never seen that way.

    Take a picture of something growing.

    Challenge: Change the mood or tone of a photograph by altering the contrast, brightness, hue, saturation, exposure, etc.

    When I found this challenge, I immediately thought of a photo I have of Notre Dame in Paris. I had created art in the style of Andy Warhol with this image before …

    WONDERful art.


    Let’s talk photography. Or more precisely, cinematography as photography. And let’s talk Wonder Woman. If I haven’t already mentioned or dropped enough hints, I love the new Wonder Woman movie. I never knew how empowering a superhero movie could make me feel because I’d never seen a three dimensional, …

    Eye of the beholder


    I would consider myself an avid yet extraordinarily amateur photographer. My favorite media for sharing photos is my Instagram and my preferred camera is my phone. What I really like about Instagram’s platform is it works best if the person posting is selective in his or hers choices. An Instagram …

    Weekly Summary #3


    This week was a double edged sword. I can’t remember the last time I was able to really let my imagination run that wild for that long and feel productive!  It was almost overwhelming how in depth I could dive into my stories and I certainly didn’t have time to …

    Challenge: Choose an emotion (happy, sad, excited, hyper, sleepy, surprised, inspired, ect..) and then choose three songs that elect that emotion. Name emotion, the song, and why it makes you feel that way.

    *variation: I created a twitter account for my superhero Khatykra and wrote from her point of view…

    Songs are crazy.


    Challenge:  Identify an innocent seeming song that advocates some odd/criminal behavior and reformat it as a police report style article.

    Song: Dive by Ed Sheeran


    Ed Sheeran, age 25, of Halifax, England was taken into custody by Heathrow police after hijacking a plane on the tarmac late Thursday evening.…

    Haiku Ode.


    Haiku o haiku

    O what to say about you

    And fit the words too


    Playful, sweet, and fun

    Or making me think a ton

    In so few words done


     With rhythm and rhyme

    Measured so justly and prime

    Keeping it in time…

    If I were a…….



    Damn it. Not again. Not another alarm clock. I slowly open my eyes, knowing…… yep – smashed to pieces. Guess I’ll be heading to the local market after work. I pick up the mangled wires and buttons and toss it into the trash can atop the …

    Weekly Summary #2


    So this week got away from me and as I type against the deadline, I can’t help but feel proud and excited about the work I did accomplish.

    Which is not to say I won’t be breathing a huge sigh of relief when I hit the “publish” button.

    To start, …

    My Invisible Cape


    I’ve always been a fan of vision boards. Make them. Hang them.

    Mediate in their general direction. Usually this is a solo activity – partially because most people don’t seem into the vision board idea, and partially because I never asked.

    So when I stumbled upon a vision board workshop …

    My Bat Symbol is A Dandelion



    When was the last time you looked through your phone’s contact list? I mean really LOOKED. Not scrolled. Not perused for through for names saved next to eggplant, peach, and heart emojis, but really looked. Stopped. Thought about the connection you have with that person; why that person is …

    Weekly Summary #1


    This first week, I learned that I really had nothing to fear.

    This is a common theme in the comic book of my life. I procrastinate. I avoid. I make excuses. When inevitably, whanever I finally face the terrible foe, I find it much smaller than the monster I …

    Super Me!


    So, it may have taken me a while to realize I was a super hero; and I may still be discovery my powers, but knowing I am unstoppable has been worth the wait!

    I have a keen sense for picking empty rows on cross country flights.

    And the wing-span of …

    Fear Nothing.


    And so a new adventure begins.

    My name is Leah and I originally joined Digital Storytelling at UMW because it meet criteria to (finally) finish my degree and it was offered online. Reading through all the warnings of work involved for the class, I began to have misgivings, but then …
