    Week #14

    It is here! The final week. This week was a busy one for sure. I still have 2 papers, 1 presentation, 1 project, and 2 exams to go until I am completely finished with undergrad! Overall this week went well in finalizing my plans for my final mission and executing my final mission! I kind of put my final and concluding thoughts of this semester in that post, but I will also reiterate it here. Although I am very excited for this semester to be over, I am actually quite sad! I learned a lot from this class. More than I ever thought I would! I am really excited to…

    Final Mission

    Weekly Summary #11

    Finally it is Fri-YAY! This week was ok. I wish the weather would stay consistent but I guess we can only expect so much from VA! Since we chose to do a talk show episode, we really only had three posts this week: Daily Creates, Our video progress, and our weekly summary. Daily creates: Mission Ideas: I had several ideas about what our next mission as a class should be, but I believe some were a bit far stretched so here are a few that we could actually do. I think it would be super awesome to thread a story through all the social media sites that we created for…

    This was a veryyyy busy week! Unfortunately I had to start my assignments later in the week due to other obligations but I’m proud that I finished!

    Weekly Summary #8

    This week was awesome because we were able to finally finish and post our radio show! Check it out! This show actually ended up being a lot of fun and I was able to get a feel for what an actual radio show is like! We prepped a lot for this radio show, but it was all worth it. The first week was mostly figuring out what we wanted to talk about on our show, and how we were going to split the show into segments. Here was our progress and process throughout the weeks: The preparation that took place the first week really helped set up for the second…

    Weekly Assignment #5

    Week 5! This week was filled with a ton of audio assignments, far from my favorite thing to do! But this is mostly because I have never messed with audio before. When I first saw that we were dealing with audio assignments this week I immediately panicked! Audio is my least favorite thing to do. I tried to download Audacity but unfortunately I do not have enough gig-a-bytes to download it. So I decided to stick to Garageband that was already downloaded to my laptop. This week consisted of a lot. I will start with the Daily creates Day 1: Youth Literature Day 2: Day 3: Overall these daily assignments…
