hurry & chase that phrase – the daily create –

Oh boy, who’s ready to be embarrassed with my lack of creativity? I AM. #ds106 #tdc2010 i am so ashamed…this was an awful attempt pic.twitter.com/7QsdatkpA8 — Taylor (@simplytelling) July 11, 2017 Today’s daily create was a tough one; you had to play “telephone” with a single word where you can only change, delete, or add one letter…and it was awful.…

Well hello, it’s me Taylor again. For today’s summary, I’m going to talk about audio storytelling references from TED Radio Hour and ScottLo! – TED RADIO HOUR – This audio clip talks primarily about a woman and MIT professor named Sherry Terkle (Lord, I hope that’s spelled right…) and her life up until the point where she was asked to…

student life – audio assignment –

Last post of the day, can I get a hollah!? Today I did my first attempt at editing audio and completed the required audio assignment, sound effects story. I’m actually quite pleased with how it came out though it’s not an exciting tale…it is one that I relate to personally. The story I wished to portray was one that I…

– storytelling through radio –

Welcome to week three! It’s our hump week, classy right? So, I’m noticing this week that we have a lot of reading and experimenting to do and let me tell you what…I’m going to need it.

– week two reflection –

I love graphic design when it doesn’t require animation, but I was definitely going to try my best regardless. Overall, I think I completed the assignments rather well…I did have to go back and update a…

dear virginia drivers – design assignment –

Well hello again. I decided to do a 4-star design assignment rather than re-doing one from earlier this week because…reasons. But for today’s assignment I went ahead and did the PSA Billboard which I found very rewarding. For those of you who don’t know…I absolutely despise a good 99% of Virginia drivers. I have literally driven in other states and…

after the storm – the daily create –

Finally!!! The last post of the week before tomorrow’s summary. CAN I GET AN AMEN? For today’s daily create, we were asked to take a photo of something from a different perspective…I think I was able to conquer that in a nice and poetic manner. #ds106 #tdc2006 i normally like to look at nature through the perspective of blooming colors…

get rekt, nerds – design assignment –

Oh lord, what have I done now. This week’s final design assignment was one I’ve been wanting to do for a while…design a t-shirt. Having been blogging for 5 years, t-shirt designs are something I have done once or twice for promoting purposes rather than franchising. Say for instance, when I go to a concert or a relatively large event,…
