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
"Stop! Move away from the cookie jar!" Everytime some one opens me, I say this. Every. Single. Time. Its so ANNOYING! I wish there was something else I could say, Like "here have a cookie" or "today's a good day for cookies and milk!" "Move away from the cookie jar" just sounds forbidding. Cookies shouldn't be like that. They should be treats! Feeling guilty having a cookie is no fun. I know contrary to popular opinion, my favorite food is not a donut. I actually hate donuts. Cookies are my favorite! Some might say I could be a cookie monster!...Read More
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
Hiya! For part of the final project, I decided to make a Pinterest for Beatrice. One of the web assignments was to make a pinterest board for her dream vacation. Now Beatrice works very hard so I decided to pick something that was still in the states for her, and DisneyWorld is a great option. So from there I just found some good tips and trick on what to pack while flying down to Orlando. Luckily there is transportation provided to and from the Disney owned resorts, so I didn't included a rental car. I picked Animal Kingdom Lodge for...Read More
For another final project assignment, I decided to create a recipe haiku. While pinning the board for Beatrice's dream vacation I came across this recipe for Honey Hame Biscuits. I thought this was perfect for a haiku. It's an easy recipe with that beatrice could make on a weeknight, while helping her kids with homework and the nightly routine. I used PicMonkey again to add the text. I grabbed the picture that was used on the pin itself then I added the text. Here is the final product!
Hiya! For my final project I decided to use Beatrice Russell as my main focus. I created 4 social media sites for her: Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. I decided to use these social media sites because I thought she would want to focus on things outside of work. I thought Facebook and Instagram would be perfect for her to share what her kids are up to or what she does in her free time. I also thought Pinterest would be great for her to keep a lot of the things she does on a daily basis in order, like...Read More
