    A Reflection on Design


    When you hear or say the word “design,” what is the first thing that pops into your mind?

    Is it clothing design, interior design, graphic design, etc. or something completely different?

    This week’s focus was on design and how to implement design in different projects!

    I watched two TED talks …

    Week 5: We Did It Guys


    Once again, we have reached the end of another week surviving The End.

    This week, the focus was on learning all about audio! I’ll say this. I’ve become much more comfortable with using different audio platforms such as SoundCloud and Audacity. I used to hate recording my voice and then …

    Once Upon An… Apocalypse?


    As another audio assignment from the assignment bank, I completed one that incorporates Disney and the apocalypse! I was immediately drawn to this assignment due to the fact that it had to do with Disney. Who isn’t excited by that?

    So what did I have to do? Well, I needed …

    Hello?… Anyone There?


    This week, I got to experiment with a bunch of sounds and audio! I just finished up posting an audio clip of me to Frequency 2156. If you’ve never heard of this site, it’s a website which is almost its own radio show. When you first go to the …

    “These Are A Few of My Favorite”… Sounds!


    For this assignment from the assignment bank, I was to create an audio recording of four or five of my favorite sounds. This really got me thinking because I’ve never really thought about what sounds I actually like. I know what sounds I don’t like because every time I hear …

    Annalise Huddleston was born on June 11th, 1988 in Seattle, Washington. She grew up with two older brothers and one younger sister. Her mom and dad always had their hands full, that’s for sure. She loved dolls and all the toys you would think all little girls love. She had …

    My History with Audio


    This week has been all about diving into the audio world!

    I love to listen to music anytime I can. I also love to listen to podcasts and audiobooks when I can! I’m the person in the gym typically listening to a podcast of some sort rather than listening to …

    Secret Messages in the Apocalypse


    In the apocalypse, we have to communicate in code. It’s too dangerous to say everything we need to over the phone or text or anything like that because the government can see it and it will not end well by any means. That’s why I want to share two messages …

    Before and After the Apocalypse


    So… I made it!

    I’m so glad to be alive. I can’t unsee the things I’ve seen. I’ll never forget the people I’ve met. It’s not over yet, though!

    I haven’t run out of supplies yet, so here’s hoping I make it all the way through. Wherever and whenever the …

    Living Life Through A Lens


    Pictures. We take them almost everyday.

    This week I was tasked on completing and reading some research and information related to photography, and how to get that “picture” perfect photo. I personally have the shakiest hands ever, and when I try to take a picture I have to use both …

    The Apocalypse as Told by the Alphabet


    I couldn’t seem to write a comprehendible story while only using each letter of the alphabet to begin each word. This is what I did instead!

    Apocalyptic creatures such as aliens and zombies have taken over.

    By the end of the night, there will be nowhere safe to hide.

    Goodbye to the World She Knew


    Millie had to say goodbye to her world as she knew it when this picture was taken. News reports had warned everyone of an event that was very apocalyptic-seeming. The last thing that Millie’s parents wanted was to put their and their daughter’s lives in danger. Around 7:00 this morning, …

    Surviving the Second Week of The End


    This week, I started out by completing two Daily Create’s! For the first Daily Create, which I completed on Tuesday, we were to write a fictional story in 240 characters or less, due to the fact that 240 characters is all you can use in one Tweet. For the second …

    Apocalyptic Fiction and A Weekly Update


    This past week, I have explored apocalyptic fiction in several different mediums.

    I watched an episode of a BBC Docuseries called Horizon which came out in 2004. The episode I watched showed five different possibilities of how to world, as we know it, could end. The first scenario was a …

    The World is Ending and Here’s How I’ve Prepared


    The apocalypse. Everyone’s heard of it. We’ve feared it’s arrival. And now… it’s here.

    When I was about fourteen-years-old, I was first introduced to what apocalyptic life might be like when I watched Shaun of the Dead (2004) with a few of my family friends. Of course this movie is …
