    Oh Deer

    by

    April 17, 2022. We spotted this deer while hiking in Guindon Park, near Cornwall. It was a bit cool and the ground was *very* soggy. Still, the Jays won and the sun came out for a bit and we saw deer and snakes and birds and squirrels, so overall it…

    Almost There

    by

    This past week I spent focusing on my final project. This started life as a story that would include hyperlinks to audio and visual artifacts that filled out the story and ended as a new subdomain that allows people to submit ideas and makes the story open sourced. I did …

    Grounded

    by

    This project started as a hyperlink story and ended the week as a new subdomain that I plan to turn into an open source story, with other people able to send in ideas to the email I set up for the website. I spent a lot of time on some …

    Wind Storm

    by

    April 15, 2022. I thought I might go out for a bike ride but we had gale force winds all day. It blew one of the bird feeders off the stand. Tried to play (and live stream) video games instead but the power cut out several times. Basically a rest…

    That’s a Wrap!

    by

    This has been an enjoyable but lengthy class! There were many moving parts, but I definitely think that it was worth all the effort in the end. My final project was fantastic! I have been learning to play the organ for a little less than a year now, and I …

    The Optometrist

    by

    April 14, 2022. This is the optometrist in Embrun. I drove Andrea here today so she could pick up her new glasses. The frames are dark and they make her look a bit Ingrid Michaelson. I also went out for a ride today but didn’t take any pictures (I did,…

    Moose and Bear Agree This Was an Excellent Idea

    by

    April 13, 2022. This print by Jason Carter was part of my gift from the NRC for 20 years of service; it now hangs on my home office wall. I also received a really nice 20-year pin. I actually passed my anniversary date last November and had given up on…

    Lunch

    by

    April 12, 2022. This is my typical everyday lunch. On the left, some squash and some warmed up tuna. On the right, some Babybels, an eff, two wheatabix patties (I pout the tuna on them ) and some bread (I put the egg on it). https://flic.kr/p/2neJ3Lu

    Week 14 + End of Semester Summary

    by

    Here we are, the end of the semester and my experience with ds106! This has been an extremely long semester for me, probably because it has been my first “normal” spring semester since COVID. I didn’t even know what to expect when this class started, and I remember feeling so …

    The Cast (character mockups)

    by

    There are two main characters in this story: the protagonist and Hel. I decided to leave the protagonist unnamed for two reasons. First, the term protagonist is gender-neutral, and I figured there would be fewer unfair assumptions and requests about her character if producers were not aware of her gender …

    Helvíti hefur frosið yfir

    by

    If you don’t know Icelandic (which wouldn’t be surprising given only around 350,000 people speak the language), let me translate this project’s title. For example, helvíti hefur frosið yfir means hell has frozen over. Back in January, I came up with a concept for a movie or tv show (I …

    Better Days Are Coming

    by

    While getting close to the end of the semester, I wanted to invest a lot of time into some very high quality graphic design work. While the assignment had a heavy emphasis on the idea of creating a story, I put a bit of a twist on things to still …

    Weekly Summary – Project Week

    by

    This week was really stressful. I started the week with my original idea, then scrapped it halfway through the week because I realized that it didn’t mean enough to me. That meant I had to start completely from scratch in the middle of the week. But at least it was …

    Final Project

    by

    After many, many hours of photo, video, and audio editing, I have finally finished my final project.

    Let me preface this by explaining myself before you watch the video.

    Initially, my final project was supposed to be about something else because I quite literally took the instructions of our original …

    The Unluckiest Week

    by

    My main contribution this week was this. This project kind of felt like nothing was going right, and I got frustrated because I knew how to make it better, I just didn’t have time, and I won’t have more time to make it better until after finals are over. …

    Cow

    by

    April 11, 2022. This is one of the many many painted cows dotting the region around St. Albert and Casselman, all celebrating the dairy industry here in eastern Ontario. This one is right at the St. Albert cheese factory (home of world famous cheddar and curds), taken on one of…

    Wintergreen

    by

    April 10, 2022. This is wintergreen, spotted on our walk in Pine Grove Forest today. It was new to me; Andrea pointed it out and told me some about it. I did a TikTok video about it, and as of this writing (a few days after the fat; I’m lagging…

    In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream

    by

    I’m not going to lie, I’m not super proud of the final product, if only because I knew what I wanted it to be, I knew how to do it, and I would have done it if I hadn’t run out of time. When making this project, I had all …

    Bangkok 24 h

    by

    Chapter II from the book DESTINATION DESIRABLE

    Twenty-four hours later, including an almost twelve-hour flight, Paula and Walt already spent the first impressive hours in Bangkok. They had kicked off the afternoon in the infinity pool surrounded by floating candles, champagne, and a sweeping view over Bangkok.

    In the evening, …

    Behind the Scenes

    by

    So, first off you may have noticed my final project is not on this subdomain. For it, I created a new one. It serves as the ASU blog. However, you may have noticed the mysterious link post and that plays into my final project.

    For my project, I used …

    Bringing some joy to the close of the semester!

    by

    Well, we have made it! What a semester, I think this one takes the cake so far! I can definitely say that I have learned quite a lot from this class! For my final project, I decided to spread some joy and play music from an upcoming audition that I …
