    Final Project Tingz


    I’ve had a lot of time to think of project ideas for my show, and whether to base it off our 80s theme or what is currently happening in the world.

    Personally, I believe I would rather base my final show off the 80s as we don’t know for sure …

    Radio Shows for Dayz


    This week I was excited to kick it off with listening to the radio shows, as I was eager to listen to my other classmates’ work as I knew how hard we’ve all been working these past two weeks. 

    I tuned in to hear the live-stream monday and was excited …

    Week Nine Summary


    What a week. I thought I had it bad weeks before? Nope. This. Is. Crazy. Amidst all the craziness, I was relieved (as crazy as it sounds) to have some normal in my life; completing an assignment for class. Here’s what I created this week: 

    Daily Creates: 

    Glad I got …

    Crazy, but Surely Got It Done


    Over Spring break, I was able to interview both my parents on the 80s. However, I had to translate the actual footage as my parents both don’t speak english. Emily was also able to interview her mom over spring break, and when we planned to meet Thursday, is when we …

    Week Seven Summary


    So relieved we made it to Spring break! But even more relieved and happy to report that my audio assignments were a piece of cake unlike the last time working with audio assignments. I had a lot of fun creating some pieces for the radio show and after gathering thoughts …

    Keep it Bumpin


    Create a ds106 radio bumper

    As I began thinking about my bumper, I decided to tune in to the local station beat 101.5 to gather some inspiration. I noticed that in almost every verse or statement, they conclude with the phrase “101.5” or with the beat that rhymes with 101.5. …

    Week Seven Daily Creates


    I enjoyed these daily creates as they were not too complicated but did make me think. One of my daily creates even reminded me how close we are to Spring break and Summer!

    Slowly but Surely


    It has been a very eventful week (midterms) and the radio show had not crossed my mind at the beginning of this week. Thankfully, one of my classmates Samantha reached out to me on Twitter and viola we became a group! Emily and Zane also joined our group and thus …

    Week Six Summary


    Overall this was a great week as I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to complete the graphic design assignments as I had never been one well with creativity or executing designs. I must say however, I am pleasantly surprised that I did not have a melt-down when …

    In The Arms of An Angel


    Charity Ad

    For this assignment I was able to create once again on canva, the free and convenient site that I have now been using to create my posters.

    I have always cared for animals and it breaks my heart when they are left homeless or not adopted. Thus, I …

    If I Can Turn Back Time *Cue Cher*


    Super tattoo

    For this assignment, I was inspired to use in my opinion one of my favorite superheroes and her powers, Hermione and her time turner necklace. Her character is brilliant in the story of Harry Potter and I fell in love with the concept of being able to manipulate …

    Just Blitzing Around


    For this assignment, I had taken my camera (iPhone X) around with me for the week, which I normally have on me anyways as I am always capturing photos of moments on my phone. I took photos from Monday until Wednesday as I captured photos of what I was seeing …

    A Beautiful Nightmare


    I was a bit worried this week when I realized we were working with graphic designing, as I am not blessed within this talent or expertise. Nevertheless, I was eager to gain some more insight on this skill as what I may consider my worst nightmare, the content created by …

    Week Five Summary


    Phew! What a week. I must say, out of all the weeks so far, this definitely was the most challenging. Whether it was trying to get the correct file for Audacity, or Soundcloud copyrighting all my work for the thousandth time, it was rough. But on the bright side, We …

    80s Friday


    For this assignment, I decided to once again use sounds from the vault and used a couple sounds to describe a typical friday for an 80s teen; The birds chirping signify this teen waking up, the car starting showing they’re going to school, the bell meaning school is out, the …

    Beat It, Audacity!


    For this assignment, I decided to compare an iconic 80s song by the pop king Micheal Jackson, Beat It, where I took his original version of the song from 1982,

    Had to use an audio-pitch version due to copyright.

     and the version of fall out boy from 2009.  

    I meshed …

    A Bumpy Bumper


    For this assignment, it took me a bit longer than I was expecting as I ran into some trouble regarding the import of my voice memo. It was in the wrong format so I had to convert it into a WAV file to use on Audacity, but nothing a simple …

    Mixtape: DJ Diana


    For this assignment, I used the sound editing program Audacity, which I have been familiar with for quite some time now. Being a dancer, I have to mix, cut and mesh songs together to choreograph routines to it. One of my favorite mashups I created involved a bunch of songs …

    Week Five Daily Creates


    This week I enjoyed creating my daily creates, as they were not relatively hard and rather made me rejoice being in the moment or looking back at old memories. 

    #tdc2951 #ds106 Then best present was when my parents gifted me the opportunity to have a Quinceañera, and I was able …

    Radio Show Brainstorm


    I don’t listen to the radio that often (only if there are some sort of concert tickets raffle or if my phone dies and I can’t listen to music), so I didn’t really know what a radio show was when I started brainstorming, but after some research I realized that …

    Listen, Closely.


    I really enjoyed the tweet-along this past week. I was able to join both Tuesday and Wednesday this week and listened to a couple of episodes of the Escape tv series, which I found was a great source of sound effects and how they virtually create and tell a story. …

    Music to My Ears


    I’m a firm believer that a story is not successfully told without sound and music. I can support my claim as the only way I can watch scary movies is with the sound off and subtitles on, as I don’t get afraid if the sound is off and I am …

    Week Four Summary


    I had a very busy week to say the least, but nevertheless it was very rewarding to look back at my assignment from this week. I have always loved photography and I am always taking photos every chance I get. However, I feel this semester I haven’t really had the …
