    Final Project

    We have come to the end, my friends. Now I swear something always has to happen to where I can not finish my assignments in time. After a few days of working on the final, I was doing some finishing touches, and my sister called me. She had severe dehydration and needed to go to the hospital. I went into a different kind of speed, and rushed to bring her. She got hooked up to I.V.’s, and after 4 hours, I finally was able to finish up my project. After a few more editing hours, it is safe to say that I have completed my final project. So, for one…

    Agents are MISSING

    Attention all Secret Agents! A few of our secret agents have gone missing. Of them are Agent Amelie Amaya Agent Laura Petrie Agent Super Secret Squirrel They have been captured by the evil villain LockJaw. We have a composite sketch of him below. He is 275 pounds, pale as a ghost, with long fingers, and mismatching boots. He’s 6’7 and hard to miss. He tends to create a trail with his drool, and his super power is mind control. This means he is able to make his enemies do anything he desires. These three agents went missing on a mission to infiltrate a Russian headquarters and gain access to their…

    Progress Report

    We’re almost at the end of this class! I’ve enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I originally took this class because it was online and it helped with being a commuter student. I dropped one of my lectures on campus before even going, and chose to do two online classes instead. This is something I’ve never done, and I thought the course load for just two online classes would be the death of me. Here I am to say, however, that I am happy with my decision. This class has shown me that I don’t know as much about computer systems as much as I thought I did.…

    Yo Momma WHAT?

    Stars: 2 Remix: 2 1/2 For the original assignment you’re supposed to take a picture of an object and make it basically unrecognizable. I had already done this assignment, so both of my remixes are from assignments already completed! Now, the remix made it quite impossible to relate it back to my secret agent, which is what I was hoping to do. I had another assignment chosen, and was going to use my secret agent in that one, but I was more interested in this assignment. The remix called for yo momma jokes. So I took this literally and took and unrecognizable photo OF yo momma jokes. Then I sent…

    Animoji Karaoke

    Stars: 5 This assignment was super easy! The hardest part was finding a phone to do it with. I don’t have a phone with Animoji, so I had to use my boyfriends phone. He agreed immediately, but I didn’t want him to see me make a fool of myself! I went into the bathroom and used my phone to play the music, while using his to record my animoji. We had to fiddle around with the app, because it wasn’t working properly, but eventually got it to work. Then I sent it to myself and saved it from my laptop. Overall, this assignment was waaaaaay too cringe for my liking,…

    Weekly Summary 4/12/19

    Well….. after two weeks of constant struggles I have finally completed MY MISSION! Here I am on Tuesday writing my weekly summary after cracking down and fighting my procrastination. For those interested in my laptop update, here it is. I dropped off my laptop on Thursday, with the estimated time I would be getting it back this Wednesday. Safe to say, this would’ve created another hell week. However, it was ready to be picked up on Saturday. I spent the past couple of days grinding all my homework out, so that for once I can enjoy my free time. I think my laptop should be all good! If not, and…

    Even Newer Mission?

    I chose to take my idea, and mash it together with a bunch of different other students ideas. My idea: Use all forms of digital media we have learned about this semester. This includes video, writing, audio, and photos. Video: Spies are missing, we must find them with a scavenger hunt. This scavenger hunt will require going through everyones blogs. Create a screen recording of the entire scavenger hunt and post it to your blog with a write up.

    Secret Mission Alert: From a Text?

    Stars: 5 I chose to do this assignment because we all know what I love to do in this class. Do as many stars as possible, to avoid the write ups! I tried to think of how to do this assignment, first and foremost. I thought of using a friends phone, but didn’t want to intrude. I knew there was a laptop at home, but I was at school in between classes. I chose to do iMessage on my laptop, and changed the sending address from my number, to my email. This way, I wouldn’t get double of the same messages, because I’d be texting myself. I chose to go…

    So You Wanna Do A Video Essay, Huh?

    Stars: 4 For one of our assignments this week we had to do a tutorial for an assignment we had already created. I chose to do the Ebert’s Analysis assignment. I really enjoyed this assignment, and it could be difficult to know how to do without any background information. I had already made a tutorial for ClipGrab for an assignment, so this one was a piece of cake! All I did was set up a screen recording, talk in my head to know what I would say during my voiceover, save it, edit it, put in a voice recording, and upload it to youtube. I chose to only add music…

    What is your least favorite photo?

    Stars: 2 Remix stars: 2 For my first assignment bank I had to take my favorite photo and explain why. I chose this assignment to remix to give it some FLAVOR!! The remix called for doing the complete opposite of the intended assignment. I chose to then, make this about my least favorite photo. This proved to be difficult. I don’t really have a least favorite photo, unless I want to ruin my life by posting an ugly photo of me for the whole internet to see. Then, I knew exactly what would be the photo. I love this photo. But I also hate the background information of it. This…
