In order to make this video, I used the app “Pixgram” on my phone. It let me select all of the images I wanted to add into the compilation, choose how long I wanted each of them to display for, and whether I wanted to crop the images to fit in the square or have them fit with a white background instead. I chose to have each picture show for 1.5 seconds and fit the entire picture instead of cropping them. I also decided to add some music in the background so I chose “Take Me Higher” from their free music selection. After a few attempts to make the video file size less than 2MB, I decided to upload it to YouTube instead. I hope you enjoy the finished project and had as much fun looking at my DS106 work as I did creating it.

In order to find a poem for this daily create, I went on Google and searched “simple poem in Italian” and scrolled through until I found this one that was in Italian and did not include a translation. I then racked my brain for all of the words I could remember from my high school Italian classes. I did my best to translate it but I clearly do not remember a whole lot- I am proud of getting the basic concept correct, though. Then to get the actual translation of the poem, I used Google translate. I typed the poem in and took a screenshot of the result it gave me.

DS106 “The Forrest Gump Project”

I added myself into this image from the women’s suffrage movement.

I added myself into this image from the women’s suffrage movement. To find the original picture, I went on Google images and searched “women’s suffrage.” I chose the picture I wanted, then scrolled through pictures of myself to find one where I could cit out my head in put it between some people. I used the app “Adobe Photoshop Mix” to cut out and merge the two images. I also used the app to put a black and white filter on the image of my face so it would match the other picture. The cropping did not come out great and I’m not extremely happy with the way it turned out with the shadows and how I do not have a hat, but it is okay.

In order to make this, I used the app “Adobe Photoshop Mix.” With the app, I cut out the image of The Thinker and put it on top of the whale. I found both of the images from a Google Image search. This idea immediately came to me when I read the prompt. At first I thought maybe I would try to draw it, but it wasn’t coming out the way I wanted it to so I decided to do it digitally instead.

In order to create this masterpiece, I used Adobe Photoshop Mix on my phone to remove the background of the pictures and place them on a template I found online. I then chose the closest font I could to the one used by The Brady Bunch in order to add the words in the middle.

On April 29, 2017, I participated in the People’s Climate March in Washington, DC. This is the sign that I carried around, which says “just because you can’t do EVERYTHING does not mean you shouldn’t do ANYTHING.” This is one of my favorite quotes because it inspires me. Studying environmental issues can be extremely discouraging. Sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do, you’ll never be able to do enough. I often start to feel this way and start to get overwhelmed. It is this quote that reminds me that every little action will make a difference. If everyone thinks that they can’t do anything, then nothing would get done.

DS106 “What They Might Have Done in Social Media”

For this assignment, I chose Rosa Parks as the person I would make social media profiles for. She was an incredible activist and an inspiration to women.

For this assignment, I chose Rosa Parks as the person I would make social media profiles for. She was an incredible activist and an inspiration to women. The people I chose as her friends were her husband Raymond Parks, Martin Luther King Jr, and his wife. I believe she might have posted about the bus incident when that happened, so I posted that for her.

For her twitter, I had her tweet at president Dwight D. Eisenhower demanding legislation. I think that this would have been an incredible tool for her to have at the time because it would have spread information about the civil rights movement to more people in a shorter amount of time.

This picture was taken in Cambridge, Massachusetts on the lawn in front of the town hall. I was just relaxing in the sun and eating my lunch when this little bird hopped right up to me. I decided to put some rice into my fork and offer it to my new friend. We shared a nice little moment together before the bird flew away with a mouthful of rice. I was amazed by how trusting it was, just coming right up to me. I bet people feed them all the time so this was nothing new, but it was my first time experiencing it. I was thinking about it all day and it ‘made my heart sing.’

Do you have a sweet tooth? I have the perfect recipe for you. This might be the most sugary thing I have ever consumed but I promise it is totally worth it. Following this recipe will give you a nice, dense, sticky ball of deliciousness. I recommend eating it with graham crackers- it is not something you will want to consume by itself… or maybe you will, I don’t know.

Today I had an extremely difficult time doing some assignments that probably should have been easy. After struggling for quite some time, I decided I need to take a break and try again when I am relaxed and make this graph about my experiences. The thought behind this is that as my frustration with WordPress increases (due do my inability to complete assignments regarding formatting), my grade in ENG 304 will decrease. I used Microsoft Excel to create the line graph and Snapchat to add the Emojis and make it slightly more artistic.
