    Week 5: The Power of Sound


    This week was our audio week. I’m extremely new to audio so it was really fun to dive into something I really knew nothing about! I’ve listened to many podcasts, but I’ve never focused much on the sound being used. It’s been so interesting to learn more about sound and …

    Radio Show Ideas


    Here are a few ideas for the radio show assignment! I’m not really tied down to anything, so this is not a comprehensive list. I’m excited to work with some of you to create the “our” portion of Y(our) story!

    1. A movie/show/whatever review

    I love talking with my friends …

    DS106Radio Radio Bumper


    Here is the radio bumper I created for DS106radio!

    This was a fun assignment and I don’t have too much to say about it! I know a lot of radio hosts like to do super jumpy and lively bumpers, but I decided to do a more toned down and chill …

    DS106Radio Tweet Along


    On Monday night our class listen to a audio drama called I Saw Myself Running. Since we’re focusing on audio and sound this week, it was interesting to listen to something where that was truly at the forefront. I listen to podcasts a lot, but I don’t really focus …

    Don’t Buy Big Toboggans


    This assignment is pretty simple; say a tongue twister as fast as you can and overlay some background sound.

    I came into this assignment with all the confidence in the world. I thought I was good at tongue twisters, but as you can hear my first attempt was a failure. …

    My Favorite Sounds


    For my this audio assignment the goal was to showcase some of your favorite sounds! I loved this assignment because I’m a big ASMR person; I use it every night to fall asleep. If you don’t know what ASMR is it’s basically someone making sounds like tapping, scratching, or whispering …

    Week 4: Smile for the Camera


    Week four is complete! This has probably been my favorite week so far. I really enjoyed diving a little deeper into the world of photography and photo editing. Like I said in one of my assignments this week, I haven’t been able to be as creative as I’d like to …

    Pumpkin Head


    For this assignment I’ve returned back to trusty Firealpaca to do some photo editing! The goal of this assignment was to take a black and white photo and restore the color back to something in it. I’ve always liked photos that use this kind of technique. I think it’s a …

    For this assignment, we were tasked with taking seven specific photos in 20 minutes using the photoblitzer website.

    I had a lot of fun with this assignment! I liked how open the prompts were but were still restrictive enough that I wasn’t at a loss on what to photograph. It …

    Photographs and Y(Our) Story


    This week we are focusing entirely on photography! Photography is something I have very little experience in, however it’s something I’ve always wanted to get better at. Since it’s so easy to take photos nowadays with phones, I take them all the time, but its never been anything I’m particularly …

    Week 3: Writing, Writing, Writing


    For this week, we focused completely on writing. I’m glad we got the section I was least excited about out of the way as soon as possible. Writing is not something I particularly enjoy, however this week wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! The prompts helped a …

    How Can Fantasy be Incorporated Into Y(Our) Story?


    Miyazaki films are some of my favorite movies, particularly Spirited Away. The film follows Chihiro and her journey trapped in a world of spirits. I actually haven’t seen this movie in several years, so I went back and rewatched it for this assignment. I was a little worried that the …

    Dude, How do you Feel?


    For my last assignment I chose one that has you write about how a certain song makes you feel. I chose this assignment because music has always been a big part of my life and I love sharing my favorite music with others!

    I decided to focus on the song …

    What’s in a Name


    My name is Conner
    My name sounds like a boys name
    I don’t really mind

    For this writing assignment, we had to make a haiku about ourselves. I decided to focus on my name because I think it’s pretty unique. I have a traditionally ‘masculine’ name and because of …

    Alphabet Soup


    Anyone buying cats doesn’t ever feel glum. Having inside, joyful kittens like my numerous obedient pets quells rage. Sounds they utter vocalize with xylophones. You’re Zen.

    For this writing assignment, the objective was to create a story with each letter of each word following the alphabet. I will say, …
