One of my favorite things to do that involves the internet is to browse through Tumblr. It can be very entertaining and interesting. This assignment had me record a video demonstrating this. I was going to film it all on my phone, but I realized that I can’t flip from the front to the back camera while I’m recording a video. So, I recorded myself using my webcam on my computer, then recorded my screen with my phone, then put the two together in Windows Movie Maker. Here’s my video:
This assignment took a spin on the six word story and six word quote ideas and had me do six second art. This was a tough one, not because of the art but because it took me like ten tries to fit what I wanted to draw into only six seconds. I thought a fun idea would be to draw what I used to draw myself like when I was only four or five years old.
Another Pinterest assignment! I’m finding that I like this website more and more…there’s no limit to what you can find on Pinterest.
When pinning posts for this assignment, I found I had several ideas of a dream vacation, so I pinned posts that had to do with all my ideas. I would love to visit Ireland, take a vacation at a lake house, go camping/hiking, stay in a cabin in the woods, and do all of those things with a dog by my side. I think all of these things are possible with the right amount of planning, money, and time. In order to travel with a dog I obviously need to be at a place in my life where I can have a dog. I also need to be able to have a steady job that I can take days off from. I think these things will be possible several years after I get out of college because hopefully I will have a dog, more money, and a good job that provides the money I would need to go places.
Here is my Pinterest Dream Vacation board.
Google Translate can either be incredibly helpful or the exact opposite. My mission was to put something into Google Translate that would translate it into something funny. So I played around a bit and came up with this:
I found that when I went from a foreign language to English, for the most part the translation seemed to be correct. Google Translate has really improved over the years. So I had to mess around with things like the above to get something ridiculous. I thought that this one was particularly weird.
Sticking with the photography theme for this week, the next assignment I chose had me take a distorted picture of something and make it as unrecognizable as I could. Shaking my phone around as much as I could while still snapping pictures, I came up with this after several tries. Can you guess what this is?
