    The 5th Installment of Summaries


    This week was more difficult for me than previous weeks. I think audio media is the thing I am least comfortable with and the section I was dreading the most. It took a lot more time this week to complete these tasks, and if I’m being honest, dont think the …

    Live Tweeting


    This was my first time live tweeting while listening to something. The story itself was super creepy and kind of made me question my own dreams and why they happen. The sounds in this story were so unique to the time period, from the static of the microphone, to the …

    Just Working Things


    When thinking about what my daily life sounds like, I though a lot about my work life. I work retail and getting up and going to work is a DRAG, but ya know, gotta get that $$. So, I thought it would be funny to make a shortened version of …

    Ted Talk


    For my third assignment for this week, I chose to do a Ted Talk. The assignment was to listen to the way the speaker emphasized words and pauses, and try to recreate it using his speech. I’m always super nervous when it comes to public speaking, so this was definitely …

    When ~Corona~ Ends


    In the assignment bank this week, there was an assignment to change a rap song lyrics to post apocalyptic lyrics. I got the idea to change the “post apocalyptic” part to something Covid-19 related. This song came on the radio a few months ago and I substituted “September” with “Corona” …

    80’s Radio Commercial


    Below is my version of an ad on an 80’s radio commercial! I had background music that was popular in the 80’s and found a product that is actually becoming popular again!…

    Radio Bumper


    Here is my radio bumper for ds106 radio! It was definitely a little strange making this. I tried to make my voice as smooth as possible (like most radio dj’s) but tried to make it fun and upbeat!…

    Sound and Stories


    After listening to Moon Grafiti, it is evident what a key role sound plays in our ability to visualize information. Sound has the ability to set moods and create emotions. When listening to Moon Grafiti, I felt like I was there, in that moment, listening to them. The sound was …

    The 4th Installment of Summaries


    As in previous weeks, this weeks’ assignments challenged me to be more creative and use new tools. I used photoshop for the first time and actually learned something fun that I might use for future social media posts. My phone has an amazing camera so one would think that I …

    Where I live is SUPER boring. I live on a pretty busy road so there’s no where I can really walk to take pictures and I was unable to devote the time this week to get out to a park due to my work and school schedule. So, with that …

    You’re Doing It Wrong


    For as many times as I say this phrase, I don’t have a lot of pictures to laugh at or reference when I think about this sentence. But, I was able to dig up a super old photo of a carseat strapped to the top of a van in the …

    8 Bit Pic


    Below is an 8 bit picture of me attending an art exhibit at Artech House in DC. I had no clue what an 8 bit picture was before this assignment but after finding a website to convert the images, it took some trial and error to find a picture that …

    Marine in Wonderland


    Pictured below is my best friend, Marine. This assignment was to make something seem out of proportion. For some reason, my mind immediately went to the Smurfs (idk why because I haven’t seen or thought of Smurfs in years…) so I wanted to incorporate a mushroom for some reason. I …

    Giant Pencil Holding


    A while ago I tried to create the optical illusion that I was holding the Washington Monument … BUT I think I needed to be further away for it to look right. “A” for effort though, right?

    Splish Splash


    I actually really enjoyed this assignment because I had never used photoshop. It took a bit of googling to figure out how to get just a single color in the photo but once I figure it out I had a lot of fun with it! I actually edited a few …

    Visual Storytelling


    When it comes to capturing a picture, I tend to get lost in the moment and forget to capture an image to remember it by. I find myself looking back on a day and wishing I had captured something to remember it by. Most of my pictures in my phone …

    Summin it up – round 3


    I was excited about this weeks assignments because it required me to interact with friends, talk about my favorite person (my mom), and I got to show off some of my favorite pictures of sunsets. I ended up sending my mom the post I wrote about her and she was …

    Am I a Storyteller?


    I am not a huge fan of telling people personal details about my life – especially random strangers on the internet (sorry folks), but let me give you a glimpse. When I was watching Kurt Vonnegut talk about the shape of stories, I started wondering how I would draw my …

    Story Time


    This assignment was something that I actually really enjoyed. I ended up texting two friends to see if one of them was free to help me with this assignment and surprisingly, both of them replied in a timely manner. So instead of just going with one story, I sent the …

    Dear Mom,


    To the woman who has inspired me the most, encouraged me to be my best self, and has shown me the epitome of strength – thank you. From the best, to the worst times, you have continued to be my best (and lifelong) friend. You often tell me how proud …

    Canvas of Colors


    For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with sunsets. Each one changes by the minute and either gets more vibrant, or fades away with the day. When I saw the assignment “Another Day” in this weeks assignment bank, I knew it was perfect for me. Sunsets …

    Summin’ it up 2.0


    When reading the instructions for this week, I was a little overwhelmed about everything there was to do. 3 assignments from the assignment bank, 4 days of posts from the daily create, editing my blog, and commenting on others posts seemed like a lot for one week. I started to …

    Bee-lieve it or not


    In the Visual Assignments section, I found an assignment to post your favorite photo you’ve taken and tell the story of why you love it. When I took this photo, I was a Longwood University playing softball for the club team at UMW. We had just gotten new balls donated …

    Spill the Tea


    One of the assignments this week from the Design Assignments was to create a charity ad. One of my all time favorite charities is 4Ocean. The work they do is incredible and so inspiring. In relation to our theme of “What is Our Story”, this charity was what introduced me …

    Gif or Jif?


    One of the assignments from the section “Animated GIF Assignment” for this week was to create 4-5 gifs (btw, how do you pronounce this?) of your favorite TV show. Of course, I had to choose the most dramatic show on television; The Bachelor! My favorite part of each season is …
