    Week Eight Summary


    This week actually went pretty smoothly. I managed to get all of the assignments done early in the week, so I was able to relax for the rest. Except for right now. I didn’t realize that our blog post were due a day earlier than I thought, so just a …

    Daily Create – Week Eight


    For this week, I did two daily creates. The first one I did was to put a rooster where it doesn’t belong. I used Photoshop to put a rooster at the beach. For my second daily create, we had to basically put up a message like a batman signal. My …

    More Commenting…


    I definitely procrastinated on commenting this week. I would prefer to comment earlier because I commenting on post that are 3 or more days old is weird to me. It just feels like it’s not relevant in a way. Despite that, I dug deeper on people’s blogs and Twitter post …

    Radio Show Progress #2


    We’re finally done with the radio show! Being done honestly feels like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Since everyone had a plan for their stories or bumpers, we just had to record it and put it together. I finished my commercial last week, so all …

    Week Seven Summary


    This week was a bit rough. First of, my group and I got on a late start on our radio show, mostly because of logistics like finding a group to work with and interpreting the directions. So far we’ve figured out what everyone is doing and I’ve also already finished …

    Daily Create – Week Seven


    For this week I only did one daily create. I had a lot of other homework and I also went home, so I slacked a bit on my school work. Anyways, I did a daily create about Facebook being down for a day. I hardly ever get on Facebook, so …

    Communicating is Hard


    This week we had another chance to comment on people’s post and tweets. As in the past, this is still a little difficult for me because I just don’t know what to say. Especially on Twitter, a majority of the post tagged with #ds106 are about daily creates. I commented …

    Vault 106


    Our radio show is called Vault 106. At first I wanted to create something based off of the name, but I got a really late start on the assignments, so I didn’t have enough time to really execute what I wanted. I originally wanted to have monsters “unleashed” from the …

    Radio Show Progress


    The big project we have for the next couple of weeks is to create a radio show. To be completely honest, this assignment is stressing me out. A lot. (small rant coming) I already don’t enjoy the audio assignments, so it’s really hard for me not to be negative about …

    Week Six Summary


    This week was all about the elements of design and how we can incorporate them into our projects. I’ve learned about elements of design before an I am also going over them in another class this semester. Our first assignment involved looking over some suggested readings and record our thoughts …

    Daily Create – Week Six


    For my daily creates this week I did “bad art”, my favorite drink and international smile day. For “bad art” I took a stock photo of a corporate worker and pasted a party hat and birthday gift on top of it. I don’t really have a favorite drink, but I …

    Design Blitz


     This week we were assigned to do a design blitz. For the blitz we were supposed to take pictures of objects or ads, etc. that showed some element of design. For my photos I took pictures while I was at Marshalls and used some pictures that I already have in …

    Aspects of Design


    After looking through some of the suggested readings, I have come to the conclusion that design takes more space in our life than I had thought. Of course, everything has to be designed by someone, but I’m not thinking about it all of the time. When I’m eating my Frosted …

    We had a pretty easy week with only a couple of assignments. We had to listen to either a live radio show or the Radio Lab story, 1-2 or 4 stars worth of audio assignments from the assignment bank and 3 daily creates.

    I didn’t get a chance to listen …

    Daily Create – Week Five


    As usual, we had three daily creates for the week. I did a “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster remake, made a ransom note and sent someone to cool down the Earth. I used Google and links from the @ds106dc tweets to create my daily creates. For the poster, I …

    Assignment Bank – Audio


    For this weeks assignment bank, we had to choose an audio assignment worth four stars. I chose to do “Music Mashup”, where you pick two songs and make them into one. The hardest part was actually picking the songs I wanted to mashup. I would try a few different …

    Week Four Summary


    This week was all about photography and photo editing. We had readings about modern photography, famous photographers, photo manipulation, and photography tips. We were also supposed to connect with others in the class on discord and twitter. I didn’t do this very well, because it’s a little uncomfortable to comment …

    Three daily creates for this week again. I did “dot day”, “please_____________thank you” and. For dot day, I found a picture of a simple connect the dots on Google and drew it in my notes app on my iPhone. I screen recorded myself connecting the dots and posted it. For …

    Assignment Bank – Visual


     For this week’s assignment bank, we had to do eight stars worth of visual assignments. Like last week I picked two assignments rated at about four stars. They didn’t take long and I actually finished both in one night. I prefer the visual assignments over the writings we did last …

    Photo Manipulation


    Photo manipulation has come a long way over the years and is now accessible to everyone. Photoshop is the main app used for photo manipulation, but many alternatives are available as well. With all of these tools available, we are able to change our photos by adding filters, fix blemishes, …

    Jim Richardson


    Jim Richardson is a photographer and his photos appear frequently in National Geographic Magazine. His work has taken him all over the world. His photos primarily focus on nature and traditions from different cultures around the world. I chose some of my favorites from his Small World Gallery. In all …

    Photography Is (not) Dead


    Photography plays a very big role in our lives, even if we’re not a photographer. I don’t know about you, but no matter how much storage I have on my phone, my camera roll seems to take up the most storage. We take pictures all of the time – screenshots …

    Week Three Summary


    This week was a little hectic for me. Not because of this class though. I actually went on a mini vacation to Universal Studios Orlando for my nieces birthday. Even though it was a super fun trip, it was stressful to remember to do my school work while wanting to …

    Assignment Bank – Writing


    I am taking this weeks assignment bank tasks personal. We are supposed to choose 8 stars worth of assignments in the writing section. I’m taking this as a personal attack ( winking face ;)) because I admitted in last weeks summary that I really dislike writing. Now obviously, I know …

    This week we had 3 daily creates to do. I did, a Bob Ross narrated Godzilla painting, tweet something incorrect and. For this weeks daily creates, I actually didn’t have to use any other apps besides Twitter and Google for a picture. Just like last week, I replied my tweets …

    Storytelling from the Past to the Present


    Our writing style and the way we communicate today has changed tremendously compared to how we wrote and communicated in the past. Before, we were confined to written or printed media. In this way, writings were typically more formal, excluding letters, and we were not able to receive them very …

    Week Two Summary


    Looking at the assignments for this week, I felt pretty overwhelmed. Skimming the page, it looked like we had a lot of readings to do and a lot of blog post to write. Mistakenly, I didn’t even really start on anything until Wednesday. If I would have started on Monday …
