    Picture Glow Up


    For this assignment, I found it relatively easy as on this day it was a quite typical gloomy Winter day. I also happened to snap a photo of the day outside due to a photoblitz assignment. With adobe lightroom, I transformed my gloomy day into a brighter fall day by …

    Same Old, Same Old


    Out of all the visual assignments, this one had to be one of my favorites. I had an excuse to go back into my family’s vault of pictures and look through memories from when I was a child. I had not done this in years and instead of just finding …

    Titanic Queens and King


    For this assignment, I actually ended up finding a picture from around 2 years ago recreating the famous Jack and Rose pose from the movie Titanic, with my nephew and cousin. We were actually on board The Queen Mary, which is a very close comparison to the ship Titanic, and …

    Madonna Spotted in Fredericksburg


    For this assignment, I had some fun making it and used some creativity to make it funny, or at least I find it funny. I had the idea to use Madonna since she is an 80s icon, however it made it difficult to try to find a place where she …

    80s Youth


    For this assignment, I decided to use one of the articles that was suggested for this assignment that captured the rebellious youth in the 1980s, by Rachel Lebowitz. I chose a couple pictures to analyze, which I thought were the most intriguing. 

    I chose this photo of Madonna, captured by …

    Photo Hoarder


    I am a photo hoarder. I take way too many pictures and am always being scolded for how many pictures I take. I don’t pay much mind to the critics as I absolutely love taking photos, both professionally and just civilly. Any opportunity I get I am taking a snap …

    What a fun assignment this was. At first I was hesitant and nervous as it seemed intimidating and challenging, but once I took the first photo I was running around all over the place trying to get the perfect shot. I enjoyed this assignment and hope you all enjoy some …

    Week Three Summary


    Story Analysis 

    I began the week by reading a chapter from The New Digital Storytelling. This chapter began on the definition of what people think storytelling is and how the stories are told. This chapter helped me analyze my story I chose, or rather the revolutionary action known as Moon …

    MJ, MTV, and Moonwalking


    I decided to analyze the revolutionary Moonwalk by Micheal Jackson, and will investigate as to why it became so popular and how Micheal Jackson revolutionized it when he invented it in 1983. To gain a better perspective of the moonwalk, I searched up a video on youtube which claims to …

    The 80s for Flor

    I chose to write a haiku about my mom after I found this picture of her from the 80s, sitting on a gate in Long Beach, California. I feel this picture embodies her rebellious side as a young …

    Dear Future Husband,


    I believe I know who you are but don’t want to jinx anything, so I won’t state your name. If we do get married, we would have been together for a very long time now, and the only barrier we had was our age of being too young. You are …

    Dear Mama,


    you are my rock, my heart and my purpose to succeed in life. The sacrifice you endured and still endure to put my sister and I through our schooling to have a brighter future than you is my reason to never give up, as you never give up on us. …

    At one point in time all I did was live and breathe Micheal Jackson, as he remains an icon in our music culture. The one concert I would’ve wanted to be at was his, as they were electric and adventurous (at …

    Week One Summary


    The first week of ds106 was a lot more challenging than I expected, but nevertheless rewarding once I finally accomplished all our assignments (after hours of technical difficulties and multiple trips to the digital center) 

    I began my blog with a quick introductory post to make sure I at least …

    Hey MTV, Welcome To My Blog.


    Ds106 Things: Hey MTV, welcome to my crib!

    Personally I love this theme! My parents basically grew in the 80s as teens/young adults so I have been listening to the music and intrigued to the style for as long as I can remember. I love the electrifying feeling the 80s …
