Networking and FB follow up

For my networking and FB page, I did a take on a family tree through the lens of who liked my post about my cousin on FB. Since he designed Hot Wheels, I created a website that used the colors of Hot Wheels logo and car boxes. I enjoyed creating the website and learning more about HTML and CSS, but I really enjoyed getting to focus my school work on someone who meant a lot to me and has been…

Networking and Facebook

In my Digital Studies 101 class, we have had to do 3 modules so far. Today, I have decided what module I will do for module 3 and what my focus for said module will be. I decided to do the networking module which is a project that demonstrates how different people or items link to one another in different ways. As you know, if you’re a regular reader of my blog, I recently lost one of my cousins. The news…

Mr. Hot Wheels

Mr. Hot Wheels

My way of mourning the loss of a guy who meant a lot more to me than I ever realized… My cousin Wayne was an amazing artist, father, and friend. I first remember meeting Wayne when I was in Kindergarten or 1st grade and I thought he was the coolest guy I’d ever met. I remembering thinking he was cool because he was a Hot Wheels designer in the City of Angels and he was willing to spend time with me,…

Virginia Beach DNow

Virginia Beach DNow

Last year as a high school senior, I participated in a small missions weekend called DNow! or Discipleship Now! I really enjoyed attending the weekend and learned a lot about myself, missions, and especially the Lord. So when my home church’s youth director was looking for young adult leaders, I volunteered to help. I was assigned to co-lead a group of around 6 girls and spent time with them during small group sessions. It was a wonderful experience learning who…

Selfie Soul-Searching

Selfie Soul-Searching

This is my selfie module reflection! I definitely did a lot of soul-searching when I tried to decide how to tackle the selfie module. I definitely had an intellectually good time learning about the selfie and especially doing extra research on snapchat filters and snapchat selfies! It was really interesting to learn how Snapchat is pushing the plastic surgery/white/unrealistic beauty standards thing and it’s super disheartening. I really like using snapchat filters and I’ve always known that they make me…

Sacrificial Snapchat Selfies

Sacrificial Snapchat Selfies

I’m the worst !! It’s been FOREVER since I posted last and I have totally been slacking on posting! I have typed up different parts of post and just never posted them… Anyway, for DGST 101, our class was called into action to choose a culture module to learn about. The group I’m in chose #Selfies. (Honestly, let me take a selfie). I wanted to tackle the #Selfie module in a different manner than my group members did, so I…

Beach Time!

Beach Time!

This weekend, I drove back to Virginia Beach for the weekend to spend it with my family at a beach house that my grandparents rented for the weekend for my grandmother’s birthday. It’s been a relaxing and fun weekend of hanging out with my cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. I really hate going to the beach, but I love making the drive when my family is involved. It was a super short visit, but I was able to create a makeshift church…

Photoshop GIFs

Photoshop GIFs

As you know, I have been working on making GIFs for my DGST 101 class and I have learned a lot about creating GIFs! My class presentation included a tutorial type presentation that I created, so I am interested and doing the same thing for my blog post! Seen Here: The next photo is the next step: As soon as you are finished with editing your layers, you will export your GIF. You will then see a pop up that looks…

Patience

Patience

As I was sitting in lunch today, I had a friend turn to me and say “You are so patient.” I looked at her and my immediate response was to quote scripture… I stated “Love is patient, love is kind, it always protects.” Turns out, I actually quoted the wrong thing and what I quoted is just a sign my mom has on the bathroom wall… oops. Anyway, I looked up the actual verse and it states “Love is patient,…

GIFs or Gifts?

GIFs or Gifts?

I have decided that the first module I complete will be the Art of the Animated GIF module. I want to do it because I am interested in learning how to create GIFs and the history behind them. I have had a Tumblr since I was 12 and I have never learned how to create the main source of information that is put on there. So, my plan this semester is to learn how to do that! I am really…
