    I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with this site after the ds106 class is over. I paid for a full year of the site when I signed up back in January, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep it here for a while. But just as a …

    Fandom for American Idol


    I’ve always known about American Idol and seen the commercials for it on tv, but I never really got into the show until this year. I’ll be honest and say that the whole reason I started watching the show this year is because Steven Tyler is one of the judges. …

    Aol over the years


    A site that I like to look at often is aol.com. I remember a long time ago when my parents bought our family’s first computer, and we used aol screen names for the internet and had to pay for it. It’s crazy to think how much things have changed in …

    My final post for the wedding…


    First, I would like to talk a little bit about hairstyles for the wedding, then I’ll wrap it up by summarizing the decisions I’ve made throughout the course of the final project.

    Hairstyles: I have always wanted to have my hair down for the wedding. Here are two hairstyles I …

    Advice for future ds106ers


    Dear Future Student,

    I highly advise taking the online ds106 class. For all the commuters out there, the online set up is wonderful, and on top of that, it completes a gen ed requirement. I have to admit, those were the two main reasons I signed up for the class, …

    Harry Heck


    Harry Heck

    I was actually watching a part of this movie last night with my parents and when I read the assignment, this guy immediately came to mind. Keep in mind that I’m not a big comic book person so I don’t know if Harry Heck appears regularly in any …

    Bridesmaids Dresses


    Now it is time to discuss bridesmaids dresses. I have been going back and forth about what to do for this. Obviously, they will be red like they are in this picture:

    This picture is one I’ve previously shown and can be found here.

    So, I’ve got the color chosen, …

    Wedding Cakes


    Okay, so my last post about wedding planning really got me excited for picking out wedding cake designs. So I couldn’t wait any longer and I have to use that as the topic for my post this week. It seems like there are so many things I’m unsure of about …

    Progress for elmashup


    Okay, so I might as well start off by being honest and tell you that before this assignment, I didn’t even know what a mash-up was. Once I figured it out, I felt like it wouldn’t be too hard given the fact that we just did the video commentary assignment. …

    Simple Minds… I Think Not!


    Okay, so here is my video. Hope you enjoy it! Let me just say that this was very very time consuming. I’ve been working on it since last Saturday. It’s certainly not professional quality, but I’m happy with it. It took me a long time to figure out what programs …

  11. Samantha Booth



    So this week’s post is about colors for the wedding. I think I’ve pretty much decided what colors I want it to be. I’d like to take you through the steps of my decision process and then show you a few ideas I’ve found on the internet.

    Okay, so for …

    Response to remix articles


    In response to “Praxis 2.0: Escaping the edu-travelogue”:

    This article was very diverse. I found some concepts really easy to understand but some things I found very hard to grasp. The argument of the article is, to me, saying that we are very limited in how we teach and learn …

    Wedding Dresses


    Okay, so I know this weekly post is kind of late, but it’s still Saturday, so technically it is still this week. But I can make up for the late post by saying I had my webstory assignment in extra early:)

    But anyways, let’s get straight to the topic of …

    The Muppets Wedding!!!


    So I figured that I would continue on with the wedding theme for my webstory. Obviously, I used facebook. I actually used my facebook page and the posts I made about getting engaged and just changed everything to Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog getting married.

    I was scared of …

    Our First Wedding Purchase


    Well, as you all already know, I have been looking through magazines for ideas and items for the wedding. I found something in one of the magazines that I really liked. I showed it to Bryce and he really liked it, too. That next weekend, I was shopping and went …

    Our radio show


    Okay everyone, here is our final radio show. The group members consisted of Sofia Ahmad, Bryce Young, Samantha Booth, and Matthew Presser. Our show is basically about us telling stories about stories that someone told us. There are a couple commercials included as well as transitions between storytellers. Hope you …

    The beginning of planning


    So this is a little update to how the beginning of my wedding planning is going.


    I started buying a lot of wedding magazines:


    And I recently started going to the gym so I can get in shape for the wedding. While I’ve been at the gym, and …

    The story of us (through jewelry)


    As a little intro to the adventure of wedding planning, I thought I would start out with a little story about the relationship of the bride and groom up to this point.


    It all started in September of 2008. The two met through mutual friends. They clicked instantly. That …

    Look what I found!!!


    Last weekend I went into Charming Charlie’s (behind Spotsylvania Mall) for the first time. It reminded me a bit of Charlotte Russe, except it was mainly just accessories and not much clothing. I have to say, I really liked the place. When I was there, I found this:


    Okay… …

    Some brainstorming for my project…


    My original plan for today was to make my first official post for my final project and talk about some wedding plans and pictures of the ideas I have. Well, my camera is currently at Bryce’s house and I’m waiting for him to bring it over, so I can’t do …

    My proposal


    Well, first off, I’d like to say that I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted (but it was really just last week), but I assure you that I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I’ve just been really busy with midterms.

    Secondly, I’d like to …

    A Daily Routine


    So I didn’t really know what kind of story I wanted to make when I first started, but I saw the post on MG79MKIV‘s blog page and got pointed in the right direction. From that post I saw the link to this website. Once I was there, I …

    My favs (of the class)


    As the whole dailyshoot project was going on, I was amazed by some people’s creativity and photography skills. Here are some that stood out to me.

    I really like this photo by duncandonuts56. It mainly like it because it’s an apple plugged into an apple charger. I just think …

    My favs (my stuff)


    I have to admit that there are some of my daily shoot photos that I didn’t really care for that much, and there were some that I absolutely loved. I think a lot of it has to do with the prompt for the day. Sometimes it was hard for me …

    My Design Assignment: On this day…


    My birthday is just full of weddings and love!!! Yay me!

    I found this one a little bit more difficult to do than the visual assignment. I think it’s because I had more ideas for the visual assignment. And this one was just harder because there was more detail to …

    My Visual Assignment


    I did this one with itunes. I started looking through my songs and just dragged some into a playlist that had interesting titles and after I had about 5 songs I decided to actually look at the playlist and see what I could make sense of and this is what …

    Photo editor


    So I guess it probably would have been smart to ask at the beginning of the dailyshoot assignment, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a free photo editing program that I can download that is compatible with a mac? I’m not looking for anything to fancy, …
