    Weekly Summary


    I’ve found that this class allows a lot of room for creative and I’m very happy about that. Daily creates are always my favorite, but this week’s were a bit funnier and sillier than last week’s. In fact, most of my weekly assignments had a different vibe than before too. …

    Story Analysis


    So this assignment was a bit more challenging than our usual Daily Creates and Weekly Assignments. It required a lot more thought, understanding, and effort. While I did manage to complete all the readings and videos, I had trouble understanding it all.

    So, here’s my thoughts on it all and …

    10 Seconds of Thanks


    The goal of this post is for me to be able to come back and look at what I’m thankful for. To have a visible reminder of the good in my life, rather than just trying to come up with it on the spot. So, without further ado, let’s begin!…

    Famous Last Words


    It’s kind of hard to think about what my last words would be. There are so many situations that could influence my last words. Do I know I’m dying? Because if not, the words may not be so wise. Probably something along the lines of “you wanna fight,” because I, …

    A Letter to my Younger Self


    Dear Maddie,

    Life will seem difficult. You will want to give up, cry, scream, and yell more than you can imagine. That’s okay. Allow yourself to feel those emotions. Bottling them up will do no good. Because life is difficult. It always will be. You just have to learn to …

    Who Inspires Me?


    There are many people who inspire me, from people I know directly and people I don’t. My parents inspire me everyday. My siblings shock me everyday with how much they inspire me. My friends, which I haven’t seen in awhile, inspire me. Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspires me (she’s badass), Lizzo …

    Daily Create: 80s Nerds


    I once read an article, that I wish I could find, that explained that the rise of nerd culture in the 80s caused a sense of superiority in a once marginalized group of teenagers. A group that was once bullied, finally had a sense of purpose. The article went into …

    Weekly Summary


    This week was a lot less stressful than the previous. While I’m still learning and getting the hang of things, it was a lot less about setting up and more about actually writing blogs, participating, and doing some fun work.

    Part of the fun work is the daily creates. I …

    Another Day With The Dogs


    So, for those who don’t know, I have a plethora of dogs. Four in actuality, six to be technical. Four are mine and live with me, two more are my brothers, but he travels quite a bit so I watch them for him.

    Anyways, I always walk my dogs. Usually …

    80s were all about crazy clothes, and bug eyes?


    So this assignment seemed silly and fun and I’m all about that life. I chose two of my favorite 80s musicians and I bugified their eyes!

    Let’s start with the image that turned out the best: it’s Madonna! This image gave me a false sense of confidence. I photoshopped her …

    Daily Create Colloquialism


    @ds106dc  #tdc2792

    For this daily create on Colloquialism, I’ve decided to use the the word yinz. I’m originally from Pittsburgh, PA and yinz is their version of the word y’all. For example, instead of “y’all have a nice day,” someone from Pittsburgh would say “yinz have a nice day.” I’m …

    Hey everyone! My name is Maddie and I’m a senior. I found this process very confusing. It’s fitting that the theme is 80s because I feel I lived through the 80s and this new technology is very confusing. #ds106introductions…
