I’ll admit it: I have an obsession with this song, “Youth”, by Daughter. I heard it for the first time a little over 24 hours ago, and I must have listened to it at least 50 times by this point. Am I the type of person to listen to a song on repeat when they first […]
The subject of this week was visual storytelling, with photography and pictures. And the most important thing I learned this week: I still have a lot to learn about photography. Before, I was happy with a lot of the pictures I took, thinking they were decent, if not fairly well-composed. Turns out, my photography needs […]
For this week, we had to look through some tips on creating better photography, and then try to apply them to the photos we took this week! It turns out, this was a lot harder than I imagined it would be. It was interesting though, and it got me to slow down a little when […]
This week was a week for lots of comments. 2 for each member of our radio show group, so that we could get to know their content better, and 3 comments for other blogs. It was also a week where there weren’t really reflections, and a lot of creative things. And it was really fun, […]

Anyway, he’s the collection of them, along with little blurbs about what I […]
I love taking pictures of my food. But they’re all taken so you can’t see how messy my kitchen gets!
An assignment I thought would be the most fun, but actually turned out to be the most challenging, was the Photoblitz! I chose to do it in my apartment, because as I was looking around, I could imagine all the different prompts I could do with all the various stuff we have. However, as it […]
With newer technology than even we have!
