Today’s daily create is something that we can all relate to…the joy of Mondays. After a long and fun weekend, why would we want to get out of bed and go back to work? I ask this question every Monday morning when my alarm clock goes off early in the morning.

Making this meme today was actually fun and pretty easy. When thinking about how I feel on a Monday morning, the grumpy cat picture always come to mind, which is why I thought that it would be perfect for this daily create.

In order to make this meme, I went onto imgflip.com and used their meme generator tool. What I like the most about this website is that it is pretty straight forward, and is super easy to use to beginners. Luckily, to in order to make this meme I did not have to search very far for the grumpy cat picture. The website has 1000s of pictures already uploaded to the site. However, if you want to feel creative, there is an option to use your own photo.

Once I chose the grumpy cat picture, I then added the text. Once I was done with that, I clicked on the generate meme button. This brought me to another page with the meme complete. I then used the snipping tool on my laptop and saved it to my computer so that I could upload it.

What about anyone else, do you feel like the grumpy cat on Mondays?

This daily create assignment was actually a lot of fun. For this project, we were asked to try and add ourselves to an old picture so that we could do a “redo” on the original forest gump picture.

This daily create assignment was actually a lot of fun. For this project, we were asked to try and add ourselves to an old picture so that we could do a “redo” on the original forest gump picture.

Doing this project was actually pretty easy and only took about an hour to complete. For starters, I went onto google images to see if I could find some old pictures. I came across a lot of weird old pictures and nothing seemed like it would work for this project. Then I completed another google search and looked at old family pictures. This was when I came across this old family photo and decided, “hey let me photo bomb this one!”

Adding myself to the old family photo was easy. First, I went onto Microsoft Word and found a picture of myself that I knew would work. I used the background removal tool so that I could add it to this picture. After the background was removed, I then added the old family photo and clicked the “send to back” button. After that I was able to add myself to the photo by moving it around.

Finally, since this old family photo was black and white, I decided that I needed to change that. Therefore, I went onto the different color options for photos until my photo blended in with the original photo.

Think I could be a part of their family?

Remix Guinness Book of World Records

Let me start off by saying that this project was a lot of work but it was SO much fun! For my remix, I decided to take an article about the worlds smallest police dog and use my hedgehog to turn into the worlds smallest police hedgehog.

Let me start off by saying that this project was a lot of work but it was SO much fun! For my remix, I decided to take an article about the worlds smallest police dog and use my hedgehog to turn into the worlds smallest police hedgehog.

Here is the link for the original post:

Smallest Police Dog

And Here is the link for my remix:

Smallest Police Hedgehog

This was a pretty easy assignment once you figured out what you were doing. It was a lot of plug and play and figuring out how to get things to work. For me, I took this project is bunch of different ways (I will admit that I probably made it harder on myself).

The first step I took in order to do this project was creating the picture of Daphnie the hedgehog. In order to do this, I played around with different things on word. Basically I kept adding things to the document until it came out looking the way I wanted it to. After that, I used the snipping tool and saved it to my computer. This then allowed me to upload the image to Flickr which became my best friend when adding pictures to the website. I did the same thing when adding the picture of my hedgehog and the police car to the website.

After making the photos and adding everything to Flickr, I then installed X-Ray goggles to my laptop. Once that was complete, I then went back to the original post (smallest police dog) and started to play around. I will say that I am very excited that I learned different things on Code Academy or else I am not sure I could do this assignment.

Once on the website it was basically plug and play. I was able to edit the text that I wanted to. Then I added the codes from the pictures off Flickr which made things a lot easier.

This assignment overall took me a few hours because it took some time to figure out what direction I wanted to go in and how to get things in the places that I wanted them. I would use X-Ray Goggles again. While it was a bit challenging, I had a lot of fun doing it!

Today’s daily create was a lot of fun to make and was super easy! With that being said, one thing that I liked about today’s daily create was that it was very open and you could do anything that you wanted to. The requirement I think that it had, was that it had to do something with exiting a place.

About a month ago, I got the opportunity to “exit” the United States and head to Ireland as part of a travel course for UNE. This was one of the first times that I have ever flown international so I decided that using one of the pictures that I took on the airplane would be a great choice.

Making this was super easy. I went onto Microsoft Word and added the picture that I took. Then I added a text box to show that I was exiting the States and adventuring into Ireland. This was pretty easy to do. Then since this had to do with exiting, I decided to add an exit sign. To do this, I added an online picture that I found on bing and added it to the picture. Afterwards, I decided that I did not want the background and played around the the background removal tool until it was gone.

With that being said, I would love to go back to Ireland and it is on my bucket list for places to revisit.

For today’s daily create, we had to figure out how to make something ride on a whale. When I first saw this, I did not think there was anyway I could figure it out. My first google search was to find a background removal website. I came across a couple of them but they either did not work like I wanted them to, had a max picture size, or you have to pay for it.

After some bad luck, I remembered that I could remove the backgrounds of pictures using Microsoft Word. With that being said, I found a picture of my hedgehog and used the background removal tool. This was very easy to use and took me no time at all to complete. Then I brought this picture to the front so that I could put a whale picture underneath it.

In order to get the whale picture, I went to add picture on word and searched through whale pictures on bing. That is how I came across the picture that I decided to use. After that, I placed my hedgehog on top on the whale in order to make it look like she was riding on the whale. Pretty silly, right?

After that I had to figure out how to save this picture in the correct format so that I could post it on twitter. With that being said, I decided to use my laptops snipping tool. I then saved it to my computer which was super easy!

For this project we had to make a “fake” Brady Bunch Family picture. With that being said, I decided that I wanted to use some of the children’s pictures from the child care center I work at. We are all a family anyways so it only makes sense to be a real Brady bunch family.

Making this collage was actually pretty simple. First, I did a quick google search for collage maker. One of my favorite ones that I use on my iPhone came up called BeFunky. I like BeFunky because it is easy to use, navigate, and is pretty straight forward. After I got to the website, I clicked on the 9 square layout (just like how the real Brady bunch family collage is done). After that I was able to upload different pictures that I have on my laptop. You also have the option of adding directly from facebook or from google, which I think is cool.

Once you have all of your pictures figured out, you place them in the different squares. I decided to add 8 different pictures around the collage and then add the Crayon Box Bunch in the middle (which was done using a text box on the website). Afterwards, I was then able to save it to my computer.
Since the file was 2.4mb and wordpress only allows 2mb, I then uploaded it to my twitter and added the link. Overall, this project was a lot of fun!

Hamster GIF Backwards

Original:

For this assignment, we were required to find a GIF and then turn it into a FIG (or a GIF that is backwards). This assignment was actually pretty easy and did not take any time at all to complete.

In order to complete this assignment, I went on to giphy.com and found a cute hamster video. I originally wanted to find a GIF that included a hamster flying off a wheel but none of them looked good when I went to reverse them. After some digging, I then found this cute video of a hamster running up to his pull and doing a little back flip.

After finding the GIF that I wanted to do, I did a quick google search in order to reverse the GIF and turn it into a FIG. This was when I came across the website https://ezgif.com. This website was very easy to navigate and it also had a reverse tool that helped me create this website. In order to use the rotate tool, you first take the url of the video that you are trying to do. Then you clip on the rotate button and submit. After that you save it to the computer.

The only issue that I had was that I could not upload the video to this post because it was over 2mb. With that being said, I had to upload it to my google drive and then make a public shareable link.

Today’s daily create was super easy to do and it took me almost no time to complete it! For today’s daily create, we had to pick a song, picture, or a poem that made our heart sing. Since I just got home from Ireland I already knew what to choose!

When I was in Ireland for a UNE travel course, we were able to spend 3 days in Galway, Ireland. For me, the people were amazing and I loved the culture. I wish that I could have spent more time there! One of my favorite artists, Ed Sheeran, has a song called Galway Girl. Funny part about the music video was that I actually went to the same pub that the music video was shot in!

When listening to the song I often get a small taste of being back in Ireland be I want to go back so bad! Hopefully this music video gives you a few minutes to listen to the music and culture that you will find in Ireland!

Also if you ever find yourself in Galway, Ireland you need to visit this pub in Ireland. It is called O’Connors pub. You can’t miss it because there are many different Ed Sheeran signs out front.

For me this assignment was both super easy to do, while also being fun! For this assignment, we were required to choose a favorite person (someone famous or a historic figure) and create a fake twitter post using Twister.

For me personally, I have always been interested in the story of Lizzie Borden. I think that it is so interesting how there is so much controversy over whether or not she killed or parents. It also is interesting to me that one of the most horrific crimes during her time period was committed by her, a women!

Doing this assignment was pretty easy and did not take much time to complete. First, I went on twister (http://www.classtools.net/twister/). On the bottom of the page there is a form that you have to fill out in order to get the fake profile. When completing the form, you need to come up with a fake username (can be the real persons name or make believe), then you add the person’s name, write the tweet, and then put a date for when the tweet was posted (I had to use google for this in order to figure out when exactly she was alive). After completing the form, you then hit the submit button and you get your fake profile! The only issue that I had was that I could not copy and paste in order to get it on this page. With that being said, I had to use the snipping tool on my computer and save it.

If I had to pick my favorite food in the whole wide world I would choose TACOS! I absolutely love tacos. In fact, you might find me eating tacos at least once a week.

A little fun fact about me is that I only like to eat my tacos with just ground beef and cheese. Sometimes I like to mix it up and put some salsa on top. Call me weird but it’s the best comfort food ever! Any one else “weird” like I am and eat their tacos like me?

Another fun fact about me is that I am lactose intolerant so I should not even be eating tacos because they have cheese. OOPS!

Doing the daily create was actually pretty easy. I knew already what I wanted to do. In order to get my picture I went on Giphy and found a GIF of tacos flying in outer space. After that, I was able to copy the gif to twitter in order to upload it.

The one challenging part was that daily create gave two different hashtags, one being #tdc2349 and the other #tdc2335. It took me a few minutes in order to figure out what hashtag went with which daily create.

I personally felt that this project was super easy and also super fun! First, when creating my meme for the day, I went onto http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/ to get the picture to that I could change it’s caption. The original caption for this picture was to show people how excited this little boy was to watch the red sox game (assuming that he already knew the rules and knew what baseball was). However, I decided to turn this meme into something that reflects my own life.

Growing up, my parents were always taking me to see the Portland Sea Dogs. I will be honest with you, I know nothing about baseball! With that being said, I would always sit in my chair, watch the game, and pretend that I knew that was going on. The only thing that I understood was that hitting the ball was a good thing and that missing it was a bad thing.

Creating this meme was super easy. First, I went onto the website and found this picture. I added the pictured to my documents list on my computer. After that, I went onto the meme generator website that I have been using all semester to create this meme. Once I was done, I was then able to save it to my computer so that I could add it to this page.
