    Out On The Verge;


    This is the reflection for the commercial, the show clip, and  the bumper I made.


    This was harder than I thought, not because of the difficulty of piecing sounds together, but thinking of what sounds to use! After consulting with Ashlyn, I found myself on freesound.org. I did a …

    Ich spreche Deutch.


    Naturally, I found a joke in German (Make Em Laugh, 2.5 Stars). It’s been a year since I’ve had class, so please forgive my pronunciations.

    This joke is basically a man complaining his coffee is cold, only to have the barista thank the man for …

    Hello Designer Fireflies;


    I love Owl City. (I actually met Adam Young earlier this month and I cried) So, naturally, I picked a few Owl City songs for my Greatest Hit’s assignment (3 Stars).

    It starts with Designer Skyline from the album Of June. Then, On The Wing (2008 Version) from …

    Week 6, a summary;


    This week was way harder than I expected. I’m not sure if it is because of my lack of time or that the assignments were more difficult, but I found myself struggling to finish what I needed to get done. That being said, let’s review what I have completed.

    First, …

    Canon, a reflection;


    Right out of the gate, I love the design of this little book. Ironic, but I do. The font looks good, and I love that there is text on one side and pictures on the other, it looks planned and clean. His thoughts are well organized and easy to read …

    More Blitzing;


    This time, it’s a design blitz! Considering all I have done this week is school and work, I found this actually challenging. Waiting till today made it somewhat easier, since I am away from FXBG and able to actually look for things. However, I am at Shenandoah University for my …

    Bow Barista;


    I am the bow barista; I wear hairbows to work! It’s my hashtag on instagram. Why not make a business card (2 Stars) for myself?

    To start, I opened CS2 and played with ratios till I got one that looked like a business card. I typed my name in the …

    I’m Leslie Knope;


    Parks and Recreation is my favorite (FAVORITE) show. Leslie Knope is my spirit animal, I’m sure of it. So, naturally, I wanted to create a bumper sticker (4.5 Stars) with one of her famous sayings!

    To do this, I used Pixlr’s web app. I created a rectangle (I think the …

    Stylin’ pup;


    The new iPhone has a fabulous camera! I snapped a picture of my old soul, Cami, the first night I had my new phone. She jumped up on my bed and just looked too cute, I just had to take a picture! Even though it’s a little blurry, she still …

    Ds106 Wallpaper;


    The sample photo for this assignment (4.5 Stars) made me think of outer space, so I made my own version!

    I used Pixlr, just like I did with the lyrical poster. I created a rectangle, added a gradient, used the “space” brush, and then added some text.

    Love at first [shot]


    *A daughter asking her dad about his painting*

    “what was the inspiration for this one?”

    “you see, my dear, it was a cloudy day in mid-May. I was sitting outside with a cup of coffee, as I normally do, when I saw this couple walk out. They had a woman …

    Week 5, a Summary;


    Visual week. So far my favorite! As I’ve said before, and as it says in my About Me, I love pictures. Instagram is my hobby. No shame, I bought the newest iPhone because of the camera on it. This week and this week’s assignments are definitely my forte! So …

    My little brother is a freshman at Shenandoah University. Today, I had a day off, and we (being my mom, dad, boyfriend, and I) decided to go and see him. Upon arrival, Tyler took us to a trail a few miles down the road. I had been thinking of places …

    Clouds in my coffee;


    Find something in your house. Take a picture. Let your imagination churn. Make as many different augmented versions as you can think of. Help others see what’s in your head.

    Coffee. Coffee is always in my house.


    I have a touch-screen Dell, so I was able to just draw …

    Lit’rally the BEST pictures;


     (Chris Traeger Approves)

    For my “best of the best” album, the first thing that came to my mind was how these were going to be my best photos, literally! I think I have achieved that, so far. Currently, I have six pictures. (And if you click the picture, it is …

    I See Skies of…Green?


    Take any picture in the entire world and change the color hue of the picture to completely change how it looks! Then post it on flickr to show the world!

    I see skies of green, purple apples too! (3 Stars)…

    Week 4, a summary;


    I love Radiolab. I have said that before, but I truly do. That being said, I quite enjoyed this weeks “intro to audio” theme for our assignments! I had never put much thought into radio broadcasting, just so much as thing like “that’s a good story,” or “I like the …

    Radiolab Story;


    For the “listening to stories” section, I chose Radiolab because I love Radiolab. I listened to a Radiolab post for Biopsychology last week and fell in love with their style. But, I digress.

    I will organize my thoughts and reviews by post, the titles of which are bolded below.
