    The end is here :(


    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  The moment we’ve all been dreading is here.  This is the last summary blog post as a ds106 student, and as a UMW student.  This summary is the last thing I have to turn in before I’m officially done – if i never turn it in does it mean …

    I’ve made an advice video for future ds106 students.   I filmed the video on my photo booth app, so my mouth movements don’t go according the my voice! I hope that future students really listen to the advice I’ve given.  It’s so important for them not to procrastinate and …

    Having fun and doing work


    For ds106 we had to create 2 new assignments.  I really wanted my assignments to be fun, and allow people to be creative. The way each person does an assignment I created can go so many different way, and that’s the goal I wanted to achieve.  I didn’t want it …

    The many faces of Anapaula


    The new assignment I created is called, I am me.  I wanted to do a video assignment that shows a bit of our personality and who we are.  With ds106 being mostly an online course, sometimes it’s nice to know a little bit about whose blog you are commenting on.  …

    How do I do that?


    I decided to do two tutorials for ds106 a long time ago.  Now that it’s time to submit them, I realized that I was only really content with one of them.  One of my tutorials was very descriptive and the other one had more of a free flow.  I didn’t …

    Understanding Remix:

    Look here for my thoughts on remix!

    Understanding Remix


    When I first thought about remix, I instantly thought of music.  There are so many artist that remix other artist musics to give it more of an upbeat tune, or even add their own lyrics.  When I started watching Everything Is a Remake, I was really excited to how …

    The final project for ds106 is by far, the most exciting and creative final project I’ve ever had to do.  For once I get to have fun with something, instead of bubbling in multiple choice answers or writing essays to show how much knowledge I have acquired through the semester.  …

    Sad, yet excited.


    Ugh this semester is almost over.  Which means this class is almost over, and I graduate! I’m so bittersweet about it.  Do I really have to grow up and get a job and do adult things?  My parents would say “yes” but what’s wrong with being a kid forever?  Well …

    Laughing in Italian


    Make ‘Em Laugh was a wee bit challenging, considering I don’t really know any languages other than Spanish and English.  Trying to pronounciate words I wasn’t familiar with was so difficult.  I chose to do a joke in Italian.   I chose this joke because I’ve always wanted to learn italian …
