On the Home Stretch

This week was really fun to work on all these different assignments!

I first started working on my daily creates. I really enjoyed all the daily creates this week, but my favorite was the favorite memory one. I love being able to look at old pictures and think back on old memories!

The next thing I did this week was the mashup assignment. I really enjoyed both assignments that I ended up doing, but my favorite was the storytelling through text. It was so fun to record myself having a text conversation and coming up with an interesting story!

APRIL

We are finally in April, which is so exciting since I love the spring time! I really enjoyed this week and love working on the video assignments!

The first thing that I did this week was the 3 daily creates. I was not a huge fan of the daily create this week, I did enjoy the April fool day daily create! It was fun to be able to look at all the other April fools prank that other people were experiencing!

I really enjoyed the video assignment this week! My favorite video assignment this week was reenacting the viral video. I got to reenact one of my favorite vines, peanut butter baby. It was so fun to be able to work on this and act out my favorite vine! Also I got to work on this with my roommate which was also so much fun!

Video Week

This week was really fun, and I feel like it was very different from the weeks before! I really loved getting to try out the video assignments and work on that side of the class.

I first worked on my daily creates! This week was very interesting and I loved the last daily create that I did. I got to look at my old music library that I haven’t used since high school to be able to complete one of the daily create and it was so much fun!

The next thing I did was the video assignments for the week! We had to do 10 stars worth of video assignments, which for me ended up being 3 different assignment. I really enjoyed working on all the assignments this week, but my favorite assignment was definite the one second video assignment. I got to relive an old memory and see the story that a 1 second clip could tell. It is crazy how a one second clip can tell so much about a situation!

Sweet Moments

Happy Memories

Teaching My Mom

It only got crazier.

This week has been even crazier than last week and I did not think that was even possible.

The first thing that I did this week was work on my daily creates and thinking about how I was going to connect all of them. With all the stuff that going on with COVID-19 right now, I decided to make my connection on how we can still see the positives in the world around us even thought it feels like the world is kind of falling apart. I really enjoyed connect these three daily creates this week!

The next thing that I decided to do for this week was reflect on one of the radio shows that I listen to. The radio show that I decided to reflect on was 80s Crime. I really enjoyed this radio show as a whole and learn a lot about different criminals in the 80s. I also really enjoyed being able to reflect on what I have learned about audio from this class and put it towards what I thought about this radio show.

The next thing I decided to work on was my project ideas. I was really excited to be able to brainstorm some idea that I could use for my final project in this class. I think that this was really relaxing for me and definitely got my creative brain thinking. I came up with two ideas that I am really happy and would be excited to dive deeper into.

The last thing that I did for the week was the rework assignments. I really enjoyed looking back on my past work and making it better. I also got to see how my skills have improved since the first couple of weeks in this class!

Coding Time

I really enjoy all the assignment this week but especially looking at different themes for my final project and being able to be creative in that!

What a crazzzzyy week!

This week has definitely been one for the books. It has been super crazy with everything happening with the Coronavirus. However, this week was super fun in this class. Being able to put together a radio show and be proud of it has been so much fun.

I start this week with doing my 2 daily creates. I was not to happy with the 2 daily creates that I chose this week, but my favorite out of the 2 was definitely the drawing something vintage. I feeling like I am very happy with my ending result even though I’m not a great drawer.

The other thing I did this week was work on my radio show! I am super happy with how it turn out! I think this whole process of coming up with a topic and creating an actual radio show was very fun! It was such a fun concept and I am super comfortable with recording my voice which is so different!

Radio Show Week 1

The first thing that I did for this week was my 3 daily creates! I really enjoyed all the daily creates this week! My favorite was probably the use your initials as an abbreviation. I really loved this one and felt like I had to be very creative with this daily create!

The next thing that I did this week was work on some promo for our radio show. I know that one person in my group was working on the logo so I want to create a bumper sticker! I am really happy with the results!

The next thing that I did for this week was the audio assignments for this week. I decided to do two radio bumper and a commercial for my radio show. I really felt like this let me come out of my shell and make me very comfortable with recording my voice. My favorite assignment from this week was the second bumper that I did. I was the one that I felt the most comfortable doing and really felt like I could be myself!

The last thing I did for this week was talk about the progress of our radio show. I think we all made a lot of progress on our radio show and that it coming together very nicely. We are all working really hard and I can not wait to see the final product!

I really enjoyed all the assignments this week and being able to creative in the design portion of this class.

I start off my weeks by working on my daily creates.

Next I decided to do my assignment bank assignments. I really enjoyed all the assignments this week, but I think my favorite one was the best way to spread cheer is making cards for all to see. I love sending cute little notes to my best friends to cheer them up when they are feeling sad or just stressed. I love that I now have this one on deck for anytime I want to send it to them!

Lastly, I went to work on my Design Blitz assignment. In this assignment I had to take picture of 4 different signs and talk about the different concepts from this week. I really enjoy taking a deeper looking into signs and applying knowledge that I learned from this class.

Listen Closely

I started off this week working on my daily creates! My favorite daily create from this week as definitely being able to look back on the time I went to the Ed Sheeran concert! I really enjoyed working on all the daily creates this week!

The next thing that I did was the Radio Bumper assignment. I was really nervous to do this assignment because I hate listening to my own voice, but I feel like this assignment got rid of a lot of my nerves when it comes to recording my voice. I really enjoyed being able to put together a little script in order to record this!

Then, I did the live tweet along to ds106radio. I think this is the assignment I enjoyed the most this week. I love the concept of tweet along live with something, and the fact that I got to do it as assignment was so much fun. I loved the way that Escape really used sound to portray what was going on in the stories. I also really enjoyed being able to see what my classmates were saying and compare opinions about what was going on!

Next I decided to brain storm some ideas for the radio show that we will being doing in this class. I have always wanted to have my own podcast where I just get to talk about a topic, so I was pretty excited to brain storm ideas for my own radio show. I decided to go into talk about different topics that surround the overall topic of pop culture in the 80s!

Next, I decided to start working on my audio assignments for the week. I really enjoyed working on the assignments this week. I feel like I got to work on my skills with audio editing and really enjoyed it! My favorite assignment from this week was definitely the sound effects story. I feel like I really got to be creative and improve my audio editing skills.

A moment that changed me..

If you lived in the 80s

I really enjoyed all the assignments this week and all the opportunities to be creative!

This Semester is Flying By

I can not believe that we are already done with week 4. I feel like this semester is flying by so fast! I really enjoyed being able to work on my visual skills this week!

I first started off by working on my daily creates! I really enjoyed all the daily creates this week but I really loved thinking about what ice cream flavor I was. I got to think about my grandfather homemade ice cream which is the best!

Next I started to work on my Visual Assignments. I really enjoyed being able to be creative in a visual way this week. My favorite assignment has to be talking about my favorite picture. I chose a picture from when I was working at a camp this summer, and it was amazing to be able to reflect on my time there and share it with the class!

While working on my visual assignments I also did my Photoblitz assignment. I really enjoyed this assignment. I think it was the most creative that I have been for this class specially since I had a time limit!

Then I went back to the photo reflection assignment! I was really excited to talk about this topic and reflect on why I take photos and how I could improve my photos in the future!

Lastly, I did the reading assignment for the week. I really enjoyed looking a photography of artist and pop culture from the 80s and being able to see the story telling through the photos.

I really enjoyed all the assignment this week! I loved being able to be creative while taking photos!

Quarter of the Way Done

This week was really fun and I really enjoy working on all the assignments this week! It was nice to be able to pick the writing assignments that we got to do this week and put a lot of heart into them.

I first started off with starting on my writing assignments for the week. I ended up picking 5 different exciting assignments that added up to 12.5 stars. My favorite assignment from this week was definitely being able to write a letter to my future husband. This is something I have always meant to do, and to be able to just take 10-15 minutes out my day and write this letter was really fun!

Next I decided to start working on my daily creates. I like being able to have these small assignments to be able to be creative every day. My favorite this week was definitely being able to think what would be behind my door!

Time to get creative

Lastly, I went back the read The New Digital Storytelling: Creating Narratives with New Media and watched the videos before talking about my T.V. show. I picked Full House because it is one of my favorite T.V. shows ever. I had a lot of fun thinking about why the writer/director told a story from the 80s.

Full House!

This week was a lot of writing, but I really enjoyed it!
