Month: September 2016
Well another hectic week for me. Though I was relived to have these assignments as my DS106 work this week. It was a chance for me to relax and breathe for a minute doing something that I like to do with taking photos.
For my Daily Create I only got around to doing one but this was it.

Out of the Assignments we did this week. I did two 4 star ones.
The 1st one was to take a close up of something to have people guess at.
The 2nd one was to try to take a bad photo.
I really liked the Photoblitz. Though I will admit that I didn’t quite pay attention to all the rules but I started at 1:23pm and ended around 1:37pm and was able to do 13 of them. Though I did forget to get the code for the lists that I wrote down but I went back through and found different list that they were on though I couldn’t find them on the same one.
Hopefully next week I ‘ll be better at getting things done on time.
I was able to do two of the photo blitzes though I forgot to write down the code of the ones that I did. I was able to do 13 of them with in 20 minutes because I wrote the two different sets down on a piece of paper. I ended up going back an writing down the codes of the ones I did though I couldn’t find them all on the same code.
The 1st set that I did was
- Change your perspective, look up (14:18)
2. Picture of rocks. (14:02)
3. Fabric. Choose an interesting pattern or fabric. (13:59)
4. How do ants see the world. (13:58)
5. Emphasize the sky by placing the horizon either high or low. (14:10)
6. Classic Rage Faces (14:05)
7. Freeze an object in motion. (14:04)
8. Something old or aged today. (13:59)
9. Something that is similar but different sizes. (13:56)
10. Out and about walking (13:58)
11. Ropes or knots. (14:04)
12. Containing stone, water and clouds. (14:03)
13. A smile photo either literal or symbolic. (13:56)
My thought processes with this assignment was to find something that wouldn’t be recognized right off the bat. I tried a couple of things before hand but thought they were all recognizable and thought this one was a more inconspicuous.
Reply if you want a hint?
Well this week was a little hectic for me trying to juggle so many things at once I haven’t felt like I had a moment to myself all week. That aside the work for the class this week was every intriguing. I have learned that I need to work on my time management a bit more and will try to do better in the intimidate future.
I’m really enjoying the Daily Create’s

I thought the concept of Web 2.0 Story telling was interesting and was intrigue though I’m still a little uncertain what I truly think about it. Though I am eager to start being creative as much as I can on the cites that we have here.
Internet 46 made me really think about how my Grandmother feels with not being able to use a lot of the technology that is around today and how it must be alienating to her and how she might be thinking that the technology and the internet can be seen as something from a dystopian universe.
I like the idea of having all these little assignments to do during the week I think that they are really useful for getting the creative process started.
Well looking forward to all the creativity and excitement of next week.
Though you are really my Grandmother I love you like you would be my real Mom you raised me and did everything in your power to make me happy and teach me how to be a proper young lady. You had raised my Dad and my Uncle and were 50 years old when you took on raising me as well after my birth mother left. I love you so much and it hurts to think that one day I won’t have there for me any longer. I always try to make you happy though we might not always get along. We’re always there for one another. Though I moved out of the house last year I still make sure to spot by and see you every day, to help you when I can. I’m sorry that I get annoyed at you more often than I should I always make a point to before I leave no matter how angry I am to always tell you Goodbye, I love you and that I’ll see you tomorrow. I want to be able to give you back all the love and support that you gave me and to try and make you happy anyway I can. I wish I had magic so that I could give you all the things that you want. Sadly I’m not and it hurts me to see you disappointed. I’m trying hard to get our little ice cream parlor to have the flavors black raspberry and Belgian chocolate as their flavors of the day again so this time I can get you your very own cone because you liked the couple licks that you took of mine so much and I regret not going back and getting you one of your own that day. I knew I should have but you insisted that you didn’t want one though you tried to go back and get it again when they didn’t have it and was disappointed when it wasn’t what you wanted. Hopefully soon they will have it back for you.
I love you Momma.
I thought the article “A Logic Named Joe: The 1946 sci-fi short that nailed modern tech” was interesting in the way that it kinda showed the internet as being seen dystonian in the thought that most machine short stories are seen that way. Though I thank that this article is sorta being our attention to how people could feel with these advances happening around them and not quite knowing how to use them. I know my Grandmother feels alienated from society a bit now because she is someone who was born in the 1940’s and she also lived in the country, which wasn’t really subjected to the internet or computer use, until I was about 8 or 9 (1998 or 1999) when we got our first computer. She might have had a little experience with just some sort of word program for a job but now with laptops she can’t even turn it on. I know she’s always saying something negative about the technology we have to day and in a way wishing for the times that were simpler.
I feel that the digital story telling is traditional story telling in a new way. I also think that it can be more of a way of promoting stories that could go on to be something bigger. I also think that the digital aspect seemingly lends itself more to the realm of nonfiction writing than fiction unless specified somewhere. Though I’m now eager to try to be more creative though my social media sites and try to use them in a way that I didn’t think I could . I want to start showing the world my creations.
