    Lessons Learned from the Readings


    The first article I read was Footprints in the Digital Age by Will Richardson.  The first thing I learned from the article was that no matter how much you think you are, you really aren’t in control of your web footprint.  However, you can take measures to increase the control …

    In class today we tweaked and decided on our theme for the website.  We also set up a meeting to do some scans at the James Monroe Museum tomorrow.  We really liked the theme we picked at first, except that the menu bar was on the left side and we …

    Secured the use of some recording equipment today so I can start trying to set up interviews with Jarod and Scott for information about the objects we will be 3d scanning.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get some done within the next 2 weeks.…

    Trying To Level The Playing Field


    A friend of mine posted an image on facebook which included texts:
    1. When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow …

    My First Day Teaching


    The flu is going around, and I caught it.  After being home sick for two days (something to do with being quarantined for 24 hours after getting rid of a fever, even though I still have a mild one?  Doesn’t matter, the point is that I was sicker than the …

    Why I Am Taking Digital History


    I’m taking Adventures in Digital History because I am a history major and thinking about minoring in Digital Studies.  I’ve taken Intro to Digital Studies and Digital Storytelling and enjoyed both of those classes so I figure the major should be pretty interesting.  I also like working with technology, the …

    The Chaos of Threes


    It has been a long time.

    I’m almost through my second month of being a preschool aide – things happen quickly.  One moment I’m volunteering in the elementary school with a hope that I can help out in other areas as needed, and the next moment I’m employed by the …

    Making a Gif


    Making a gif can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing, but if you do it is a pretty quick process.  The first thing you need to do is finding the clip you want to use, on youtube for example.  Next you need to download the video clip …

    The other day we read an article on copyright and fair use.  That topic came up in an episode of Shark Tank I was watching the other day.  One guy had a clothing company and the big thing it had was a pocket for your mp3 player and it had …

    Cuckoo for Cocoa


    In honor of the turning of seasons I have been experimenting with making warm beverages since there are not hot cocoa packets lying around.  As you can see I’m really accurate with measurements.

    Mint Cocoa

    1 spoon unsweetened cocoa
    2-3 spoons sugar
    1/4 spoon mint extract

    Rich Cocoa

    2 Tablespoon …

    Donning Donburi


    One of my favorite, worth waiting for, recipes is this gem that I found to make Oyako Donburi.  What exactly is oyako donburi?  It literally means parent and child, because it includes the chicken and the egg.  This savory dish is perfect for cold rainy days while sitting next to …

    Sliding To The Rhythm of the Moloka’i Slide


    It’s been a while since I have written anything for Aloha Fridays (suggestions, anyone?) so I decided it was time to start sharing some of my favorite songs and talk about them!

    One of the songs that I have always viewed as quintessentially “Hawai’i” was the Moloka’i Slide.

    I like …

    Spicy Chicken Noodle


    I have been toying around with recipes that involve tossing freshly cooked noodles with anything and everything I can find.  My most recent concoction is a spicy chicken variant.  This recipe works best with a one pound box of whole wheat linguine noodles and regular spaghetti noodles.  Any thinner noodles …

    Daily 300 (4): Without a straight pin


    I’m learning to tailor my own clothes.

    This seems like an imperative thing to learn considering the arbitrary sizing of women’s clothing. I’m 5’3”-ish and 155 pounds, and though most of that weight sits well on my body it is not flattered by commercial designers. I’m unique. So is everyone. …

    Daily 300 (3): Let’s try this again/Church


    Okay. Writing. 300 words every single day. Publicly. Writer shaming! It works for other things, yes?

    I tried this idea, then abandoned it, and I’m trying to pick it up again because A) I need the discipline and B) I need to learn to be less afraid of sharing my …

    I haven’t been very good about taking photos or even sharing my photos, so here are some of my favorites from September to December of 2012.  Although it’s not very many pictures I hope you can find something to make you smile, and if you don’t smile tell me why.…

    ’05 home game snippet, i’m the leaner

    I played soccer for about ten years, leaving the sport in high school before entering varsity.  I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately and so I thought I’d share with you some of the musings I’ve had.

    I Will Be Your Aunt Ethel


    The other night at the dinner table it was brought up that I resembled Aunt Ethel.  Who exactly is Aunt Ethel?  She’s the great-aunt of one of the people I am staying with.  What exactly is an Aunt Ethel?  She is a quirky, never-married woman with a heart of service …
