    Weekly Summary


    This week has been by far the least stressful.

    I thought working on the radio show would be difficult but my group made it easy thanks to our level of communication. We created a channel on Slack to communicate about the radio show which took a lot of stress off …

    MAGIC POP! Commercial


    For this assignment, we had to create a commercial around an object our favorite TV character would find useful. Though I do not have a favorite TV character, I thought I would use Archie Andrews from Riverdale because the season just started on Wednesday.

    Why I Enrolled in DS106


    For this assignment, we had to discuss why we chose to enroll in DS106.

    To do this, I recorded myself and then added the audio to audacity. I completed the assignment by adding a song as background audio. The song was found on Purple Planet Music, a royalty-free music …

    Radio Show Poster


    For this assignment, I decided to create a poster for our radio show, instead of a commercial. I will be working on a commercial for the radio show and as part of the audio assignments this week.

    Radio Show Update


    It is week one of working on our radio show.

    Finding a group was not difficult. I found them via the Excel Spreadsheet and Twitter. Once I was able to put together a group, a channel on Slack was created specifically for our group to communicate.

    First, we voted on …

    Sorry Chikfila


    When traveling through the South, especially when traveling to Richmond, VA, I always see billboards for Chikfila. There is usually a cow painted on the billboard which is instructing the public to eat more chicken.

    For this assignment, I created my own billboard and advertised a chicken telling the public …

    Design Thoughts


    I am writing this paragraph before reading the required readings for this week. I am doing this because I am limited in what I know about design, but my older sister is a graphic designer. I have seen her work and I am always amazed and what she is able …

    Weekly Summary


    This week felt the longest. The audio assignments took longer to complete than any other assignment thus far. I think this is because I had to take time to learn how to use Audacity and how to add effects to our projects. However, I am glad that I got to …

    Radio Show Ideas


    When I think of a radio show, I think of an interesting show which leaves you wanting more and more. Sort of like reading a good book, only in this case it is a show so you want to listen more and more and find out what happens.

    I think …

    The City in Sounds


    For this assignment, I put together different sound effects to illustrate the sound of a busy city. I used New York City as inspiration for this assignment. I downloaded the sound effects and put them together on Audacity. It was not difficult to do and I enjoyed putting it together.…

    Sound Effects Story


    I found this assignment to be very interesting because we had to use sound effects to tell a story. I used six different sound effects – sleeping, barking dog, yawning, walking on hardwood floor, opening and closing a door, and outside birds – to tell this story. This is the …

    My Thoughts on #ds106 Radio


    I decided to tune into Wednesday’s, September 26th, radio show to see what all the hype was about. At first I was confused, because I joined in late, but I quickly caught on and was fascinated by the radio show. It felt like I was listening to an audio book …

    Audio Reflection


    While listening to the beginning of “Moon Graffiti” I forgot that I was listening to a podcast for a second because of the use of dramatization and sound effects. It felt like I was watching a movie without the video. Sort of like a dramatic audio book.

    The podcast then …

    Photo Reflection


    When I was little, I had a dream that one day I would become a professional photographer. However, that dream quickly vanished and I moved onto new goals.
