    Goodbye, DS106

    by
    It’s about that time, fellow survivors! We have reached the End of the End. Can you believe it’s been 16 weeks? I can’t! These last two weeks, I have completed seven Daily Creates and finally finished my final story, which I worked on with my friend, Taylor! It took us quite a while, but it […]

    An Adventure to Remember

    by
    **Submission for Elizabeth Finto and Taylor Malone – The three elements we used were writing, design, and photography. **Disclaimer: Dr. Kenneth L. Davis is a real person at Mount Sinai Hospital – we used his name, but not his occupation. The picture is not actually him, and I’m sure he is a wonderful doctor and […]

    Putting the “Fan” in Fan Fiction

    by
    T-minus 3 weeks until the END of the semester! I’m losing my mind. Don’t know if that’s because of the apocalypse or if it’s my work load. Fan Fiction. We’ve all read it. Some of us have created it. Don’t lie to yourself. 😉 This week was filled with it! (Kind of) I was to complete 12 […]

    The Land of the… Survivors?

    by
    I created an accurate as fictionally possible depiction of “The Land” in California by Edan Lepucki. Of course, as the title explains, these characters are in California, however, they travel to a community/part of land that is called “The Land.” When you think of the word land, one may think about a plot of land where you can […]

BEHIND THE SCENES: I knew I wanted to create an ID card for Frida, from the novel California by Edan Lepucki. I also wanted to find a picture that would best illustrate […]

    The Backstory on August

    by
    August, A.K.A. Frida and Cal’s ‘trading partner,’ has even more to his story than we could have ever imagined. He has always been someone who listens to other peoples’ problems before he explains his own story. August grew up in a family in which everyone did everything for themselves. He basically taught himself everything he […]

    Movie Time!

    by
    This week, we continued our unit on video! One of the first assignments was to watch another apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic movie! Last week, I watched The Quiet Earth. This week, I watched a movie that I really, really enjoyed, The Day the Earth Stood Still (the 1951 version). I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this movie! […]

    Learning to Read Movies

    by
    The first task of Week 10 has been to learn how to read movies. We all know how to watch movies, but can we all read them? I’m a Communications and Digital Studies major. For one of the elective requirements, I took Intro to Cinema Studies here at UMW last semester. Here I thought that […]

    A Recap of Week 9 of The End

    by
    It has been a great week! Week 9 began with with my group’s radio show, Girls’ Guide to/for/through the Apocalypse. It aired on DS106 Radio on Tuesday night. It was so much fun getting to hear our show on the air. We all worked so hard on it, and it was so exciting to know that anyone could […]

    Girls’ Guide to the Apocalypse has Aired

    by
    On Tuesday, March 20th, my survivalist group’s radio show aired on DS106 Radio. It was so exciting to listen to something that we all worked so hard on on a platform where anyone and everyone could hear it! Rachel did a wonderful job editing everything together. There was one moment that the volume was a […]

    Another Apocalyptic Haiku

    by
    One of my assignments this week was to remix/redo/update a project that I have already completed during this semester. I decided that I would redo the three-star assignment “Haiku it up” from the writing assignment bank. The original was posted on February 3rd, and it is now March 25th! The first time around, this was […]

    It’s Been a Minute, Fellow Survivors

    by
    Hello! I had a wonderful spring break and I wish I could have about two more weeks of it. Unfortunately, I had to come back to the real world. I went down to Kiawah Island in South Carolina to visit family. Kiawah is a very special place for my family and me. We have celebrated […]

    Week 6: A Recap

    by
    We’ve made it through Week 6! I didn’t know if I’d make it! This week has had its absolute ups and its awful downs. For one thing, I had to say goodbye to my sweet yellow lab, Molly, on Thursday after 14 years together! I hate it, but I’m getting through it! Besides everything that’s […]

    Dr. Annalise Huddleston in Her Natural Environment

    by
    Annalise Huddleston returns! I’m really loving my character, I must say! It’s so much fun getting to design, write about, and just overall create someone totally fictional! She feels real, to me, in some ways already! This week, I was able to use Hero Machine to create an animated depiction of what Annalise looks like, […]

    by
    One of my design assignments from this week was to create an alternate book cover for the post-apocalyptic novel I am reading this semester! The book I chose to read was California by Edan Lepucki. I have just barely started this novel, but thanks to the upcoming spring break, I will have plenty of time to read […]

    Week 5: We Did It Guys

    by
    Once again, we have reached the end of another week surviving The End. This week, the focus was on learning all about audio! I’ll say this. I’ve become much more comfortable with using different audio platforms such as SoundCloud and Audacity. I used to hate recording my voice and then having to listen to my […]

    Once Upon An… Apocalypse?

    by
    As another audio assignment from the assignment bank, I completed one that incorporates Disney and the apocalypse! I was immediately drawn to this assignment due to the fact that it had to do with Disney. Who isn’t excited by that? So what did I have to do? Well, I needed to compile a recording that includes different Disney lyrics […]

    Hello?… Anyone There?

    by
    This week, I got to experiment with a bunch of sounds and audio! I just finished up posting an audio clip of me to Frequency 2156. If you’ve never heard of this site, it’s a website which is almost its own radio show. When you first go to the page, you immediately see a map […]
