    Ten Second Thank You Challenge

    I chose to complete the 10 Seconds of Thanks Challenge.  The   Assignment Directions specify that I set a timer for ten seconds and write a list of everything I am thankful for.   I reset the timer for another ten seconds and drew a sketch of myself (see the above image). Note:  I believe at least twenty seconds […]

    What People Think I Do

    I chose to do the What People Think I Do assignment because most of the people in my life, aside from my fellow co-workers, are not teachers. Day-to-day, I don’t feel like I am changing the world, but at the end of the week, semester, or year, I realize I make more of an impact […]

    Gravy Time

    In this day and age of technology, the art of making gravy seems to have been lost. The time has come when the grocery store has gravy in jars upon the shelves. It takes far less effort and money to simply make it in a pan at home than most people realize. No special tools […]

    Demotivate Yourself! – Man’s Best Friend

      http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/demotivate-yourself/ My dog, Luna is so mad that I keep staying up late to work. As I write school papers she stands right beside me and “yells” for me to get to bed. I took this picture and went to http://diy.despair.com/ to create this demotivational poster.

    Pinteresting Character – GoT Edition

    For this assignment, I chose to create a Pinterest board for Game of Thrones character Cersei Lannister. The ds106 assignment suggests posting pins of interest for the character and having others guess the character’s identity, but I wanted to caption the actual pictures that I pinned. The juxtaposition of Cersei’s power-hungry character against polite Pinterest […]

    Common Everyday Object

      I chose my Mason Jar because it’s a Common Everyday Object to me – capitalization intentional. I also chose this project because Dr. Rish implied that this project might not make the cut for Dr. Crovitz. I’m not sure about the purple wall, or even the green table, but I’m very happy with the […]

    Fox and Cartoon

      I happily came along this photo while searching for something completely unrelated for the What’s the Meme Assignment.  Yay for strange Google results.  It was so striking, I had to do something with it.

    Don’t ruin other peoples’ lives.. read!

      This assignment was to create a 1960s READ poster using a book character or some sort of variation. I chose to used a quote from Daisy Buchanan in the text The Great Gatsby and used a photo of Carey Mulligan as Daisy in The Great Gatsby (2013). The quote was chosen because a major portion of the […]

    Pretty Little Liars Read Poster

    Pretty Little Liars is full of literary allusions.  This READ poster references one of the greatest American novels, The Great Gatsby, as alluded to through the television show, Pretty Little Liars.  This poster was created in hopes that fans of the popular television show will explore these allusions and find clues through reading literature.   http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/create-a-read-poster/

    You Chose Wrong

    I will admit, I have never read a “Choose Your Own Adventure Novel,” as this ds106 assignment describes. However, I love the idea of writing the end of a story, the gruesome ending, not the happy one. So here we go! The little imp told you the gold was buried here under this tree. You […]

    You’re Doing it Wrong

    Sarcasm is at the heart of this ds106 assignment, which speaks to me on a cellular level. Maybe I’m stuck up. Maybe I think I’m better than other people. Or maybe I just don’t know how to handle other people’s stupidity. I blame food service. Regardless, I love the idea of this post, and I […]

    Illustrating Odd Autocompletes

    The example for this ds106 visual assignment was of a cat priest hissing while preaching, which immediately caught my eye. I first input “I love it when…” into the google search bar, and then typed a few random letters after it. I tried to choose letters that were less frequently used to (hopefully) get more […]

    Shakespearean LOLcat

    I love memes, and I love Shakespeare. So of course, I had to do this DS106 assignment. I used imgur’s meme generator, since it’s so simple. I also made a tutorial to help out anyone who hasn’t made a meme before.   The assignment details can be found here.

    PSA Billboard

    After a particularly infuriating trip to target, I decided to use the DS106 PSA Billboard assignment to vent my frustrations (Why do people think they can just walk around shopping, playing horrible music LOUDLY on their iphones?!). To accomplish this submission, I messed around with Gimp – a free photo-editing software. Although graphic design isn’t […]

    Historical Selfie

    When I saw that DS106 had an Historical Selfie option, I was so excited. I knew I had to use one of my favorite historical figures -Marie Antoinette. To make this project happen, I had to download Gimp (basically, a free and less-user-friendly version of Photoshop). After about an hour of cursing and throwing things […]

    10 Seconds of Thanks

    For my second blog post, I chose to complete the 10 Seconds of Thanks challenge. In accordance with the assignment directions, I set a timer for ten seconds and using pen and paper, then wrote down everything for which I was thankful. (There was way more that I could have listed, but ten seconds went […]

    Recipe Haiku

    For my first blog post, I chose to write a recipe in haiku form.  The assignment description asked that I write a complete recipe in haiku format, using the traditional 5-7-5 format and including all necessary steps.  Although I enjoy cooking, this was quite a challenge. Inspired by all of the impromptu salads I’ve thrown together […]

    Historical Selfies

    For my blog post, I chose to do a Historical Selfie under the visual assignments category. It seems that there’s a lot of recent talk on selfies and there’s even a (terrible) song about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdemFfbS5H0 So I decided to make a somewhat funny/morbid selfie photo of Abraham Lincoln picture in the Ford’s theater. This […]

    Phake Tweets

    For my second blog post I decided to make a “Phake Tweet” for Mark Cuban. This came at a time where the LA Clippers team owner Donald Sterling made some pretty hateful and racist comments towards minorities. Mark Cuban is an owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Him and the other team owners of other NBA […]

    What They Might Have Done In Social Media

    This is an assignment I was familiar with in the past.  I thought it was a fun assignment and I enjoyed doing it again.  I chose Bill Cosby because he is someone I respect and value as a comedian, father, and activist.  He says makes a lot of statements that don’t go over too well […]
