For anyone just coming into ds106, you’ve chosen well. This is a fun course, but it is a lot of work. Since it’s online, you’ll have to manage your time wisely and make sure you don’t forget about it just because you don’t have to attend class. Space out all your weekly assignments throughout the week rather than save them until the day before. Start early, post often. Get in the habit of doing Daily Creates. If you take this advice and the advice of your professor, then you’ll do fine. Good luck!

Wow! It’s been a wide ride, but this is the last assignment for this class! For my final project, I decided to use Twitter, photos, videos, reaction GIFs, and audio to tell the story of a day in the life of my dog, Rixs. I made a Twitter account for her, and posted in real time the things that she does in a day. I had a lot of fun pretending to be her and gathering all the media for the project. I made her Twitter handle “pekiuaua” because she is part Pekingese and part Chihuahua, so my dad sometimes calls her a pekiuaua.
Unfortunately, I did pretty much wait until the last minute to do my project, but I think I pulled it off. I’m proud of my work and I think some of the tweets are really funny. I used SoundCloud and YouTube to post audio and videos, then I embedded them into my tweets. You can view all the posts below.
Well, that’s pretty much it. It’s been real #ds106. Peace!
Read my dog Rixs’ Twitter to see what she does during the day!
I finally have an idea for my project! I’m going to tell the story of a day in the life of my dog from her perspective through a fake Twitter account. I am going to post updates of the things that would normally happen in her day in real time, including her thoughts on everything. I am going to incorporate pictures, videos, and audio of her, and possible reaction GIFs. Before I start, I am collecting all of these things so that they are ready for my to post when the time is appropriate. I welcome any thoughts and opinions on my idea.
Okay I’m gonna be really honest here…I haven’t even started the project. I have been struggling a lot with school these past couple weeks and this is one of the classes I’ve been neglecting… I feel really bad about it though and I am determined to finish the project on time and produce quality work. Stay tuned for more of my attempts to make this school thing work!
Remember, remember…to do today’s Daily Create. This one had me write a three line poem about lemons without using the words lemon, yellow, round, fruit, citrus, tart, juicy, peel, or sour. Here is my poem:

Today’s Daily Create had me use the Fantasy Town Name Generator to generate the names of towns, pick two, and write a story about what happened on the way from one town to another. Here is what I came up with:
