    Week 14 + End of Semester Summary


    Here we are, the end of the semester and my experience with ds106! This has been an extremely long semester for me, probably because it has been my first “normal” spring semester since COVID. I didn’t even know what to expect when this class started, and I remember feeling so …

    Another Day + Subtle Switcheroo


    This remix of a writing assignment has inspired this post.

    This morning, I backflipped out of my bed and got ready to start my day. I brushed my teeth, put my contacts in, killed my roommate, and wash my face. After getting dressed, I went into the kitchen to find …

    Nonconformity + Dr. Seuss It


    This remix of a writing assignment is the basis of this post. When I thought of the idea of nonconformity, I thought about the song Fifteen by Taylor Swift. I think that this is a great song about the struggles of growing up and entering a new phase in life, …

    Similar Songs


    This assignment comes from this one. Originally, I was going to mix together different Taylor Swift songs, but Youtube to MP3 was not working for me anymore, so I used audio files that I already had on my computer from other projects. For this mashup, I used the songs …

    A Changing Character


    I am using this assignment for my mashup. Instead of a character, I decided to to Taylor Swift album covers over the years. I didn’t include any of the extended edition album covers, but I think the 12 I put do a good job of showing how much she has …

    Lyric Video


    For this assignment, I used this assignment. Originally, I wanted to create a karaoke version of a song. Mostly due to copyright issues that Youtube always brings, but also because I thought it would be more fun. But mostly due to copyright. I was using ClipChamp to make this …

    Project Ideas: Take 2


    The first project ideas post I looked through gave me some interesting ideas. First, they were considering doing a map, and I would highly suggest using StoryMapJS if they choose to do that. But the idea of using Minecraft to create a physical/digital setting would be pretty awesome too. I …

    Revised Assignments


    The first assignment I revised was this Brady Bunch one I made during photo week.

    When I first did this project, I really wanted to make a 2020 rendition of the Brady Bunch, but I think I either ran out of time or motivation. So this week I finally put …

    Project Ideas


    I got really inspired in the last two weeks by the group project. I really enjoyed interviewing, editing, and creating a radio show segment. I also really loved the topic of my segment and the conversations I got out of it. For my final project, I am thinking about creating …

    Radio Reflection


    On Sunday night I tuned into ds106 radio to listen to my classmate’s radio shows. Due to my concussion, I was only able to stick around for one show. I listened to “Death of a Painter” and was incredibly impressed by it. I love how creative this story was, and …

    Radio Show Week 2 Progress


    Over break, I recorded my bumper and commercial and sent them to my group members. I actually really enjoyed making my commercial, and the Freesound website is another great resource to use for this project. Also over break, I wrote out a rough script for my individual section for the …

    Week 7 Summary

    Radio Show Progress

    I feel much better about this project now going into spring break. When I first read about this group project in the beginning of the semester, I was super confused and not excited. But after weeks of working with design and audio, I feel much more confident …

    Radio Show Week 1


    On Sunday I formed my radio show group, and on Wednesday we met over Zoom to discuss our plans for the project. We all agreed that we wanted to create a radio show centered around music, and specifically why us and other people love music. That’s why we are calling …

    Week 6 Summary

    Design Thoughts

    Reading and reflecting on these videos and articles made me think more about design as a principle. We encounter so much design in our every day lives, but don’t really think about everything that goes into it. I’ve always been interested in the psychology that goes behind the …
