    The semester is so close to being over.

    Elizabeth and I decided to do our final project together, which is really exciting! She’s such a delight to work with and I have no doubts that we will make something pretty incredible.

    As I’ve mentioned, I read H. G Wells’ The War of the Worlds for my book. I decided to do the Animated Gif Book cover after loving doing the basic new book cover during our design unit. Here is the original, and the blog post:

    Urgent! What’s going on?!

    by

    Guys… omg.

    I just went outside and saw these bright white lights in the sky. I snagged a pic and will insert it. A few moments after I snapped the picture, the light blinded me and literally knocked me onto the ground. Ever since, I’ve been feeling awful. Sluggish and …

    4 Pictures. One book. Can you guess?

    So I read H. G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds for my book, and loved it! I chose to do the “One Story, Four Icons” assignment and thought it was really great! It also gave me an excuse to use Canva which …

    The END…of Video.

    by

    Video is over. I survived. There is definitely such a thing as too much video. I am so ready to turn the camera back in to the HCC tomorrow.

    Regardless, I can honestly say I learned SO much. I went from not knowing iMovie was on my laptop, to knowing …

    Peculiar Questions…

    by

    I chose 5 questions out of the set of 10 to choose from and answered them in total honesty. My question is, why does Nessie want to know all of these strange things? I’m a bit suspicious… What does she know? What’s going on that we don’t know about?

    This …

    Love, Felicity.

    I stumbled upon the This is my Story assignment in the assignment bank and thought it was a great way to tie my character for the class into this week’s videos. If you haven’t read my blog post about my character, Felicity’s, life, I suggest you read it before watching …

    My Dream Vacation!

    by

    I’ve been taking French for about 8 years now, but I’ve never been to France (or even have left the country). If I could choose anywhere in the world to go right now, it would absolutely be France. Not only Paris and other major cities, but the countrysides and beaches. …

    Swede A Quiet Place

    by

    *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

    This week, I went to the movies and saw A Quiet Place. I’m not a horror gal- like, AT ALL, but I still really really enjoyed the film because I love apocalypse stuff, as well as when scary things have real purpose. I chose to do the Swede …

    Week 10 Round-Up

    by

    It’s finally here. Week 10’s recap. Took me long enough, right? That’s because not only did I have trouble scheduling a DKC appt. to learn how to edit, but I also kept losing footage! Woo technology! FINALLY, the videos are re-filmed, edited, and uploaded on the ‘Tube for your viewing …

    Analyzing Dr. Strangelove

    by

    As you can probably tell, I’m a bit late on the uploads this week. That is because I am awful with technology, as we all know, and I couldn’t figure out how to video. But I’m back and better than ever, and this time, with a VIDEO!!

    I analyzed Dr. …

    Breaking Down the Week

    by

    This week was bittersweet because it signaled the final end of the radio show project. I adored this project, mainly because I was finally able to work with people in person and collaborate through mediums that weren’t blog posts and twitter. Social Media is great, don’t get me wrong, but …

    Greeting Card Do-Over

    by

    A while back, I did an assignment where I did a greeting card from New York City- you may remember it:

    Now don’t get me wrong, I was pretty proud of this. However, there are still things I wanted to be different about it. Mainly, I didn’t like that you …

    Girls Guide & Alt-F4

    by

    This week, the radio shows we all worked so hard on finally aired! Sadly, because I was in the process of teching a play I’m in/performing said play, I wasn’t able to tune in. Thank goodness for the creators of Alt-F4 and especially Daniel Mercado for putting the recording of …

    Week 7 & 8 are complete, yay!

    These past few weeks have been the most fun I’ve experienced in this class. I loved being able to interact with my group and become closer to them as people. It made me feel a lot less disconnected from the class and my …

    Helloooo DS106’ers! Long time no talk. My last post was my weekly update the week before Spring Break and now I am here with yet another radio show update!

    Calligraphy Fun

    I had never thought about it, but my character, Felicity, would TOTALLY be good at calligraphy. I chose to do the assignment, Generate Cool Letters, and chose something I thought represented her well that she would actually draw her name as. This is what I came out with:

    The TedTalk of Paula Scher was by far my favorite TedTalk. The second she mentioned her work for the Public Theatre in New York, I was as tuned in as possible. As someone who wants to go into Arts Administration, it’s awesome to see that there are other people who …

    Is Anyone Out There?

    Frequency 2156 was very interesting, I must say. Even though it was just a website that is very clearly fake, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit of impending doom actually waiting around the corner for me. I’ve never seen a digital project quite like this, and love how …
