    Dear, Young Student Debtors…


    You’re not alone. Debt sucks. But there are ways we can overcome it. I’m not saying I haven’t overcome debt yet, but I can assure you that I will, and it’s possible for you to do so as well. Easily. Figure out how much you owe Before you can even …

    Today’s daily create required us to be a little creative. Claymations were huge back in the day, and all things from services to products we using claymation as a form of advertisement.

    We were tasked with finding something that we all love that would be cool to see as claymation! …

    DesignBlitz of my Week!


    This week, we were given the challenge to take four different photos which would represent different factors. You could take them based on the color, the typography, the symmetry, the aesthetic, etc. This was only a hard challenge because it was very easy to forget that it was assigned. I …

    Daily Create 2/19/2020


    Today, our daily create was to share what we had on a table nearest to us. I was at home, sitting near my kitchen table. It has a TV on it for group and business meetings, and that’s it. Everyone table was cooler than mine

    Week 5 Summary


    This was a long week. So much to do, but little time to do it. It all started off with my first post: “Radio Show Ideas”

    Radio Show Ideas

    I had some great ideas about radio shows and podcasts, and I would love to continue them down the road. Next, …

    Sick Beat


    Just me and my groovy beat. I used Audacity to make this beat. Below is both what it ended up sounding like, and also what it looked like on Audacity.

    Sound Effects Story


    I was tasked to make a story out of only sound effects. Quite an odd assignment, but I am up to the task. Here’s what I came up with:

    It starts with a hard office worker who is fed up with his job, drives to the airport and takes a …

    Radio Bumper


    I was asked to create a 20-30 second radio bump that would be used in-between songs or podcasts or some other audio form to remind the listener what they tuned in to. This is what I ended up creating (It’s big yikes):

    Moon Graffiti


    I love the starting of this podcast. Gets you right to the edge of your seat.

    The Trust Podcast wrote about the moon landing that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin ventured on. The podcast felt like you were right there with them. The sound that was edited turned what was …

    Daily Create 2/13/2020


    This daily create was very odd. I did not expect to be graded on how I would insult a celebrity actor on the internet, but that’s what happened today. I made fun of William H. Macy, who plays Frank Gallagher on the famous show, Shameless. I said I dog looked …

    Radio Show Ideas


    I think they are more like podcast ideas. There’s one idea that I’ve actually considered doing in the near future with some buddies of mine. It would be a Hemp based podcast, but also just that industry in general.

    Another Idea I have is a technology-based radio show. We would …

    Week 4 Reflections


    Wow, what a week! This was a fun one. I very much enjoy the visual assignments way more than the writing assignments.

    I love the ‘Red bull gives whales wings’ assignment. It was super fun to make and it came out far better than I thought It would. I am …

    This was a very fun assignment. I did not get far, but it was fun to create these images with different items in the room and also being quick with photoshop for others. I hope we can do another assignment like this again. …

    Summarizing Iron Man with GIFs


    What a movie this was. Hopefully, by now, you’ve already watched this movie. I would hate to spoil it. Possibly one of my favorites. Here we go.

    It starts off with Tony Stark, clearly a badass, heading to a gun showcase in the middle of the desert.

    After showing off …

    Week 3: aka Fun Week


    This was actually a good week for me. I was able to stay on top of my tasks and stay the course. Last week I struggled to keep up with my assignments, on top of my other classes, but this week I managed to be proactive and it felt very …

    My Hopes, My Dreams, My Fears.


    Wow, Kyle. It has been quite a while. A lot could happen in 10 years and as a younger version of yours, I am excited to see where you’ll be. Do you know that business you’re starting? With Wes and Ethan? I sure hope it worked out as you wanted …

    How Does A Song Make You Feel?


    How does a song make me feel? Well, I’ll tell ya!

    One of my favorite songs is written and sang by one of my favorite artists, Hotel California by The Eagles. There is no way, absolutely no way that any living person can go through this song without feeling something. …

    6 Underground – A Netflix Original Review


    WARNING: There are spoilers. I suggest that you watch the movie, then compare with my review.

    If you are someone who is into fast cars, live-action stunts, guns and chaos, this movie may be for you. 6 Underground, a movie directed by the famous movie director, Michael Bay, is probably …

    Another Day…


    In my time living in Fredericksburg, Virginia, I haven’t actually taken time to pick apart its beauty. It’s a large, historic city that hugs the rough Rappahannock River. It is filled with welcoming neighbors who, unlike many cities, actually make an effort to acknowledge your presence. Its downtown restaurants excite …

    Week 2


    What a crazy week! I can’t believe it has only been two weeks. This week, in particular, has been a rough one. On top of this class, I have three 400-level computer science courses and intermediate Spanish. The free time I have is extremely limited so I certainly fell behind …

    Google’s Impressive Neural Network


    I was very impressed with Google’s Neural Network. As you can see, I am not a great artist. Although, LOOK AT THAT SCORPION. That’s well drawn in my opinion. I had 20 seconds to draw that and I think it came out pretty well. Google’s Neural Network may be good, …

    Is that Thor?


    After a long journey traveling the universe, Thor stopped by my place. We are good friends so I wasn’t too surprised. I figured that he had more important things to take care of than see me. I felt quite honored.

    For this assignment, I decided to take a picture of my girlfriend and me from Oktoberfest in downtown Fredericksburg and put us on a resistance base in Star Wars. We love and have watched the entire series multiple times, so it just felt right.…

    First Week Reflections


    What a crazy first-week spring 2020 has been. This class specifically has been the most enjoyable. I’ve always liked creating websites and writing blog posts. Since middle school, I’ve cultivated a passion for creating websites. So, because of this fact, this class is a perfect end to a long academic …
