    Original Assignment (4 stars)

    I’ve never been one to really attach myself to a specific number but I do have an affinity for the number 5. Maybe it was the result of my middle school basketball number or taking too many AP courses in high school. Anyways, I decided it would fit well in …

    Be Careful How You Spell


    Today’s daily create was to create a meme inspired by mice. For my meme I poked fun on a play on words. I pointed out that with one forgotten letter someone could order a mouse at a restaurant, instead of the delicious dessert a mousse. I can’t resist a good …

    Sweden Montage


    This assignment was a montage of any place you wanted to go. Preferably a place we had never been to before. I choose Sweden. There was not anything in particular that drew me toward Sweden, I admired the way it was run, and one of my favorite Youtubers, Pewdiepie, lives …

    Having a small conversation with myself


    I cannot even begin to explain what a royal pain in the ass this project was for me. It took me a week of banging my head against the wall, viewing pre-teen’s tutorials on YouTube, and an afternoon in the Digital Knowledge Center to discover that my version of Sony …

    A Message to My 16 Year Old Self


    If only this could really happen. Things would be a bit different for me. I would still have enlisted in the Marine Corps though. I could have made this video funny, and made jokes, but I decided to take it a bit seriously just in case some damn cosmic phenomena …
