Weekly Summary 1/15-1/22

I did January 16, 17 and 18th’s daily create and they were actually really fun! The 16th one is right above. It was to find something most would see ordinary yet you see quite beautiful. Of course I took a picture of my apartments Keurig. It’s a pretty ordinary object yet it wakes me up and caffeinates me every morning which is a beautiful thing. Especially since I’m a grump until I get my coffee.

For January 17th’s daily create it was to make an audio or visual of our own cowboy/girl name on one of the many google apps that does that. Here’s mine, she sounds pretty swanky if you ask me.

For January 18th’s daily create we had to take the song Home on the Range and put a ds106 twist to it. I spent a good 20 minutes coming up with rhymes and this was the best I could think of. You can find my version right below!

Home on the Web – 1/18 Daily Create

My next few little inserts will be the three assignments we were to do. I chose web, writing and visual simply because they were fun for me! Neither really have anything to do with the Western theme but I imagine we’ll be required to later on.

That’s Not What I Expected

This one above was my first ever visual assignment! It didn’t take me too long, just snapped a picture and hope to see people guessing what it is!

My second assignment was a web assignment that involved using Pinterest (which I love!). It was to design your own dream room and I made mine pretty out of the box yet classy and sophisticated, filled with books and plants!

Dream Room

For my last assignment I did a writing one. It was a haiku about myself or my favorite hobby. I decided to do it about weight lifting, which is my favorite thing to do, other than shoving my face with food. And by the way P.R. stands for personal record, just in case you already read the poem and didn’t know what I was talking about!

A Haiku About You

And that’s all I have! Week two is done and dusted. I think I’m getting a better hang on this whole thing! It’s also a lot of fun to see what other classmates are bringing to the table. Can’t wait for week three!




Weekly Summary 1/11-1/15

So this is my first weekly summary! Wahoo! I learned a whole lot and have a feeling that I’ll get into the rhythm of all this madness eventually! I finally get to use my domain and blog daily, which has been a goal of mine. I learned how to use Sound Cloud and hopefully will perfect my YouTube videos! This post below shows all of my work I did for this entire week with the exception of what I think a western is, even though I do get into that. I don’t really know if I’m supposed to post my weekly summary like the post below or if I should just keep it short paragraphs? So there’s one of my questions! I’m sure more will come along the way.

Bootcamp Work

I had obviously heard this class is hard and a lot of work but I also heard it is fun so I’m pretty excited. Nothing was too hard for me since I am pretty familiar with everything we are working with however, at the beginning of the course my domain wouldn’t work so that was a little frustrating. The hardest thing I think will be the sheer work load I have heard we get and the fact that everything is due Friday and not Sunday and that I have four other classes and a job to keep up with. Another thing I don’t think I fully understand is the RSS feed. What is that?! I also wanted a little Twitter feed on my blog as well as links to my flickr., Sound Cloud and YouTube but I couldn’t figure that out. Maybe I will eventually. I am looking forward to hopefully making decent videos and just creating cool western things in general! Here’s to a great semester!
