On Joining Twitter (Week One Summary)

Hello class! Glad to be joining the fun. #ds106 — Victoria (@_sharkship) May 21, 2015 Joining Twitter has never been high on my list of priorities, only because I didn’t fully understand the point. After a little less than one week as a member of the site, my original hesitaion is still mostly intact, however, I think I am beginning to understand the way in which it can be a.. Read More

Visual Assignments

A big part of my story lately, is the trip I took to Italy in November. The experience was mindblowing, and everyday held a new adventure. I spent 2 full days just wnadering around Rome and getting lost with a Preist friend of mine. I spent another day and a half winding my way through the alleys and the back canals of Venice, a city which somehow always makes you.. Read More

WEAVESILK CREATION I had so much fun with this assignment! This website has been around for a while, but I had totally forgotten its existnec until I saw in in the bank of visual assignment options. To me, weavesilk is a more entertaining version of watching the coulds go by. In honesty, the user picks the direction, but the person in control still has very little say about what the.. Read More

My First Daily Create!

My tale is often one of hesitation transformed into enthusaism, however this assignment was totally different. As soon as I read what the Daily Create on Thursday was asking us to do I headed over to google Images and found an acceptable image of the number one athlete in the world as far as I am concerned. Marcel Kittel is a German cyclist, and arguably the fastest sprinter in the.. Read More

A (not so quick) rap about my day

SOUNDCLOUD POST Friday’s Daily Create instructed us to record a quick rap about our day. My immediate thought was “No way, I definitely can’t do that!” and I dismissed the task altogether. Life is funny though, and sometimes once an idea gets in your head, it just won’t leave until you see it to completion. That’s what happened with this rap. Throughout the day, I kept thinking of little rhyming.. Read More

A Day to Relax

After a long, long week, I decided the only way to make myself feel better was a quick trip to the river. At about 1 pm, I packed a bag with enough snacks to feed a small army, a couple bottles of water, and plenty of sunscree. When I left the house, I called up my significant other and asked if he wanted to join me at the river, and.. Read More

What’s in my Purse?

Although I am not embarassed by anything in my purse, I first cringed at the thought of completing this assignment. However, I sucked it up and decided t lay it all out. What I realised is this, the things in my purse vary widely depending on which purse I am carerying and how big it is. Here’s a picture of the things that can ALWAYS be found in my purse,..

Hello DS106

While I am only 23 years old, I am very much the opposite of tech-savvy. I only bought a smartphone two years ago because I thought I was too young to be grumpy/ignorant about new gadgets. ¬†However, once I started thinking about the possibilities for this blog and all the things I care about and can take the opportunity to talk about, I got pretty excited. I’m sure that I.. Read More
