Finishing Up!

This is so bittersweet! My last post for wire106 and ds106 (hopefully not ds106)! This semester was so much fun and its all thanks to this class! Ds106 was my favorite class I've taken so far here at UMW and I'm really glad I decided to take it. I was on the fence over the summer and whether or not I should take it but I don't regret that decision at all. I learned so much from this class and its helped me learn about what I potentially want to work with as a career. I can't recommend this class enough!...Read More

Beadie's To-do List

Hi! So for one of the final assignments I decided to make a To-do list for Beatrice! This was worth 3 stars. I had  a lot of fun with this! It was really cool to actually sit down and think about what Beatrice might need to do during the week. So I got inspiration from Allison's To-do list for her final project. So I first decided to use the Stickies app that comes with the Mac operating system.  I added the different stickies one at a time then changed the color from the default yellow to give the cluster some contrast....Read More

What's The Difference?

For this assignment we had to take a picture of something then take another one where we change something around in the picture itself. I decided my cork board on my desk would be the perfect place for this! I Have a lot of pictures and memories on this board so I figured it would be kind of tough to figure out what was different about the two pictures! Here is the first one!

Where's the Difference?!?

So you've come to find out what I moved around in the pictures? Well you're in luck! While I was thinking about what to change around in the photo, I thought I would throw a little curve ball in there. I decided that moving one object would be too obvious. So I moved two things! I moved the braided friendship bracelet and my scissors. I'll add a picture of what they look like here: [caption id="attachment_224" align="alignnone" width="728"] Before![/caption] [caption id="attachment_225" align="alignnone" width="728"] After![/caption] Sneaky sneaky huh? I hope you it was fun trying to find the differences! I definitely...Read More

Favorite Lyrics

3 1/2 star finished! This assignment was a lot of fun! I was supposed to find my favorite lyric and add it to a photo. While scrolling through the assignment page, this caught my eye just like my story map did. As I started brainstorming what I wanted to do for this assignment, I realized that I didn't have just one favorite song. I have a few favorite songs. So I set off to find the perfect pictures to go along with my 3 favorite songs. After I found the pictures I went to a photo editing website called PicMonkey. This...Read More


Another assignment down! This one was actually a lot of fun! I decided to do this at 12:40 am this morning (or last night since I hadn't fallen asleep yet). This was the list I got when I logged on the the photoblitzer site. This site makes a random list of things to take a picture of. You have 20 minutes to complete the photo blitz and the list of photos must start with the time started and the end time. So here is the list that I was given! Your favorite smell. Show us some food Power plugs are...Read More

Journey to a Great City

So 4 stars down! As part of our visual week, I was going through the Visual Assignment Bank and the Story Map really caught my eye. I I was quickly running through different trips that I took that would fit perfectly into this, and I couldn't stop thinking about my trip to London back in January of this year. I went with my grandparents for a week. We went all over the city and even made it to Greenwich to visit the Prime Meridian. I was trying to piece together where we went and when/what day we went. I think I got...Read More
