    Listening to My Front Yard


    Today was such a beautiful day!! Can y’all believe it was really 65 degrees and sunny in February? I spent a lot of time outside today and got inspired to work on the Create a Place assignment. The task of this assignment is to use sounds to transport the listener …

    Anybody feel like they need to relax? Maybe try the All the Relaxation assignment! This assignment asks you to create your own relaxation track, like the ones on YouTube that can be played for 10+ hours by combining any and all sounds that are soothing and calming to you. I …

    Auditory Anxiety


    For my first project this week, I decided to take on the Emotions Through Sound assignment. It asks you to convey a specific emotion using only sounds, but you can use any kind of sound you want. This assignment seemed like a good jumping-off point for me because I’ve never …

    RM’s Radio Jingle


    Howdy, all!! For this week’s emphasis on audio storytelling, I made a short little jingle for ds106 radio as my radio bumper assignment! There really isn’t a whole lot to be said for it honestly. I was sitting at my desk thinking about the radio jingles I’ve heard before. The …

    My Snapshot of Week 4


    Happy Friday folks! This week has been crazy busy and a little difficult to manage, but I actually really enjoyed the assignments I worked on! I don’t know a lot about photography, so it was interesting to read about it and explore my skillset this week. I talked about my …

    BLUE Ridge Mountains


    When I was little, I used to watch The Sound of Music all the time. The image of Maria spinning in the field with the mountains in the background is burned into my brain. I decided to use this as inspiration for my take on the Colorize It assignment. The …

    Crazy Cat Lady


    Everyone who knows me knows I love cats. I really do. I always get cat-themed gifts and people send me cat pictures, and I take pictures of my own cats constantly. That’s why when I found the Your Love for Your Pet assignment, I was sold. The task was to …

    Charles – 1864


    You guys have heard me mention The Vampire Diaries before, and here I go again! For The Civil War Photo assignment, you’re supposed to take a picture of yourself and then edit it to look like it could have been taken during the Civil War era. This sounded like a …

    Perry said What???


    I know very very little about spies. That whole secret agent genre went right over my head growing up, BUT I did watch Phineas & Ferb, Get Smart, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith with my brother, so that’s how I got here. This assignment, Who Said What, asks you …

    My Photos :)


    So, as I stated before, I am not great behind a camera. I just don’t really have an eye for it. After doing our reading for this week, I scrolled through my camera roll for a little while and looked for some pictures that show off some of the points …

    Photoblitz via Wilma’s House


    My photoblitz activity actually took place at my grandma, Wilma’s, house. My power went out so my family had to dash over to Grammy’s house to take showers and in my case, do homework! Here is the list I was working with, and the time that I got up out …

  12. @RMdigitally



    To be quite honest, I have very very little experience with photography. I mean I have an iPhone and use Snapchat on the daily, but I think we all know that that means nothing when considering the artistic side of a camera. My family was late to the technology game, …

    For my first assignment this week, I decided to pair up with Maddie and write a fun and dramatic little story. The original assignment, called Sharing Credit, involves writing a story with another person through email, and it’s worth 4 stars. Maddie and I decided that writing it through …

    Mr. Morris Lessmore


    When I was in like fifth grade, my mom got an iPad. This was the first
    “smart” device in our home, so I was completely enamored with the touch screen and the endless possibilities of apps. My mom downloaded this app that was an interactive reading of the book The …

    A Day in the Life of RM (online school edition)


    As I was browsing the assignment bank for projects this week, I landed on one called “A Day in the Life.” You may be familiar with the videos that people have made where they record one second of each day for a year. This assignment is a variation of that …

    Origin of RM


    One day, back when I was in high school, I went over to my good friend Lindsay’s house to hang out. I had only been there a couple times before, so I wasn’t very familiar with her family yet. We were sitting in her room doing homework when her dad, …

    What a week! The first week of classes is always a whirlwind, but YOWZA this week was really somethin! When I signed up for this class, I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into. I got a little nervous looking at the syllabus, but I have to admit, …

    What’s My Story?


    What’s my story? What’s my story? In all honesty, I’m not really sure. I think that collectively, we are all sort of living through the same story in that a global pandemic completely rerouted our learning and living experiences. DS106 and creating things online really gives us a chance …
