    Weekly Summary 14

    by

    This semester is over. Isn’t that crazy? It feels like yesterday that I started this semester.

    This was one of my favorite classes that I took at UMW. I really did enjoy pretty much every minute of every day that I spent on this class. I just couldn’t get enough …

    Weekly Summary 13

    by

    I didn’t do too much for this class this week, but I know it’ll pick up very soon. This week has been a crazy week for me in general, I’m so exhausted. Classes aren’t even picking up for me too much, it’s literally just life duties that have been suffocating …

    Progress Report 1

    by

    Wow, it feels weird creating a blog post again. I haven’t made one in so long, and I haven’t even logged onto my domain. I used to have this site open at all times, but while planning for this final project and doing other things, this has been on the …

    Weekly Summary 12

    by

    These are the weeks I love. Completing assignments are genuinely fun and really push my small amount of creativity to the limit. I always have a lot of fun doing assignments, though some can be incredibly difficult to do. However, testing the limits are what’s going to get me to …

    Animoji Karaoke

    by

    To be quite honest, I haven’t used my Animoji since I got the iPhone X. It was fun to use at first, but I didn’t really have a point to use it unless I was going to make a joke or something. But this project gave me the opportunity to …

    Cancer Sucks

    by

    This might be a little personal, but honestly I think it’s fitting. I am a very open person, and I don’t hide anything. I have always liked to make sure I express how I feel and talk about memories because I always feel less burdened and happier afterwords. This isn’t …

    The Superhero Slide Show

    by

    Honestly, this assignment makes me giggle. It is kind of silly and very stupid. But I absolutely love it! These are two really silly concepts combined into one. The two separate are funny enough, but together, the product is even funnier.

    I decided to pick this assignment because I thought …

    I Have to Tell You Something…

    by

    Have you ever seen those videos of stories told through texts? They’re pretty much everywhere. But have you ever thought about creating your own? Now, that’s a whole other thing. I have, and this is the video I created.

    Choosing this was super easy for me. I always saw the …

    by

    This was probably one of the most interesting weeks from this semester. Specifically from recording the skit and everything. It’s so interesting seeing how from one idea on a piece of paper to a full blown video. It’s such a crazy process for me. Like, honestly, what a crazy week!…

    Some Project Ideas 2

    by

    I keep thinking about the final project, and I get very nervous. It’s like a big bang to end the semester with, and I can’t think of a project either good enough or something I could possibly do alone. I have some difficulty creating some new ideas, and after reading …

    Weekly Summary 10

    by

    This week was a roller coaster, but mostly not because of this class. I was sick, dealing with mental health problems, and more. Now that this week is slowly coming to an end, I feel better and more confident. Finishing all that I had to do this week really helped …

    I am really excited for this project. Like no one has any clue how thrilled I am for this. After meeting with my partners from the group, discussed everything, and then started creating this trailer, I just realized how much fun it’s going to be. No one has any idea …

    My Video Essay

    by

    I think I underestimate myself. I need to learn to stop doubting I can’t do it just because I never have. I think that this video essay that I completed also reminded me of that. I just need to remember that if I can do something like this, something I’ve …

    Weekly Summary 9

    by

    This week was definitely different than the past couple weeks. I didn’t know what to expect after the midterm, but it wasn’t what we had to do this week. I’m not opposed to what we did, it was actually fun that we did something different.

    I liked going back to …

    What amazing podcasts!

    by

    I really enjoyed all the podcasts I listened to, and I was really proud of what everyone accomplished! While listening to some of these podcasts my classmates created, I was extremely intrigued with all of them. Also, we finished our midterm- and that’s always something to applaud everyone for. We’re …

    A story using my daily creates

    by

    The air feels so tense and I almost feel like can’t breathe. And it’s all because I said it. I asked the question I’ve been thinking of for months, years it feels like. It was a now or never type of question. Something that I knew would cause some sort …

    Re-Visiting Hum Hum Hum

    While thinking of another assignment to do, I thought back to what was extremely easy to do or at the very least, work that I did that was very simple. I wanted to change it up so that it had more effort into it, even if it may not be …

    Some Project Ideas

    by

    I am not going to lie, I always feel like I have the worst ideas. Though, I mostly blame the lack of creativity I have coursing through my body. The rest is just my pure laziness. I feel one thing that helps me out a lot in trying to come …

    by

    Trying to figure out what I wanted to revisit was a little difficult. I wanted to do something I felt that was too easy, but I also didn’t want to do something in the same realm as that project. I wanted to see what other things I could use to …

    Accurate representation of me

    This week was the world’s greatest combination of stress and no stress. There was very little to do. However, the podcast was absolutely nerve wracking for me. I’m not exactly sure why. I felt like I was going to do horribly wrong on it, I wasn’t …

    My Commercial!

    by

    I honestly completely forgot I had to do this until 1 hour prior to making this commercial. It’s not that I didn’t want to do it, I was kind of excited to do it, but I literally was so out of it since break started that I didn’t even remember …

    Weekly Summary 7

    by

    This week felt slightly more stressful than the rest, but I think it’s the looming midterm that was making me feel uneasy. I am excited to do it now, but it’s a bigger project than we’ve done before. So that made it slightly scary. It also was with all the …
