    Project Update #1

    I’m both excited for and a bit overwhelmed for this entire project. My main element is video, supplemented by audio and visual, as well as web storytelling. Media Forms I’ve decided for sure that I’ll be making a series of videos as my primary element. In addition, I’ll be making a poster or slideshow of […]

    Project Ideas – Part 2 (aka the essay post to end all essay posts)

    Last week I wrote about some of my ideas for projects going forward and my thoughts about storytelling and the final project in general. In this post, I’ll be considering themes and ideas that others have discussed and expanding on my ideas from the previous post. It’s going to be a long post, so buckle […]

    Project Ideas

    I’m amazed that we’re already more than halfway through the semester. Looking back, we’ve covered so much ground, and I’ve learned so much in terms of digital creation just in these last couple of months. Thinking ahead, we’ve got a few weeks in which we’ll be exploring video, remixes/mashups, and a final project. One idea […]

    The Story of the Jukebox Hero

    Everyone, gather ’round! It’s time for you to hear the story of the legendary jukebox hero. This story was born before I began ds106, but when I saw the Audio Bank assignment “Create a story using music”, I knew the world deserved to hear the tale. The assignment had only two sentences of description: “Create […]

    Collage of My Pets: Sugar, Shadow, and Stormy

    I’ve never lived without having pets before; I couldn’t imagine life without them. Sugar, Shadow, and Stormy all mean so much to me, so when I saw the assignment “Your love for your pet”, I couldn’t help but pick it as one of my assignments for the week. Here’s the description: Make a collage out […]

    A Very Avenger-y Bunch of Post-It Notes

    When you mix a favorite fandom with a love for world and character building, what do you get? A bit of daydreaming of domestic fluff that can result in creating grocery lists and post-it notes. I’m a fan of Marvel movies, and I find it fun to imagine what the Avengers are like outside of […]

    A Dreamy Drive Down the Pacific Coast Highway

    In the summer of 2019, before I started my first year of college, my family took a trip out west to California for 2 weeks. We had never gone on any vacation like this before, and it was absolutely amazing. This was why, when I saw the assignment “Story Map”, I knew I had to […]

    A Jumbled Poem: Words from 2001

    2001. What went on that year? Well, I was born. The Ravens won their first Super Bowl ever. Those are a couple fairly important things, in my opinion. However, other than that, there were several words added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Let’s set the record straight: it was the year the words ack, auto-suggest, blade […]

    The Bedroom of My Dreams…

    As I was browsing through the assignment bank, the “Create your own room” web assignment caught my eye. Maybe it was because of the house-creation online games I used to play as a kid, or perhaps because for quite some time now, I’ve had a Pinterest board for cool home-and-bedroom-related ideas (many of them far […]

    Rock ‘N Roll ‘N Rush

    Anyone who has talked to me about music for at least five minutes has probably heard me mention the name of my favorite rock band: Rush. If you don’t know who Rush is, let me introduce you. Once upon a lighted stage, approaching the unreal…* There were three fantastic musicians who formed the band Rush […]
