    Into the World of Design


    Immediately the Brain Pickings article got me thinking about how everything around me is specifically created. Even if we may not think about it all the time, there is always a reasoning behind the design of a building, a toy, a product, etc. I think about a good coffee mug, …

    Week 5 Down


    This week was a STRUGGLE. At first even just looking at the assignments for this week gave me anxiety. I have never been good using software and I was so paranoid I’d never finish all of the work. I started off with the daily creates since I had already known …

    Live Tweet-Along Reaction


    This week we were challenged to participate in a live tweet along while listening to the DS 106 radio show. This one proved very challenging for me as listening in on the background noises and musics made me not focus on the words and actual plot of the story. The …

    Sound Effects Story


    I found this assignment to be super fun yet challenging. As I said earlier, I have very little experience when it comes to audio recording and softwares. In fact I hate hearing myself talk and can’t work a computer to save my life. A bonus for me was that I …

    Sound Creates Mood


    Most people when they think of audio or movies they think big picture and the loudest sounds. Maybe even only the words that are coming out of someones mouth. I’d like to argue that the background sounds are really what makes the story complete. These sounds usually tell you the …

    How Can Photos Tell A Story?


    After Reading all of the assigned articles I am going to share a few of my thoughts here:

    A not so experienced photo taker


    I would say that I take a lot of pictures now, none of which are done professionally or with a ton of attention to detail. I love pictures for a number of reasons, one of which is I can try and capture a moment to the best of my ability. …
