Make my Day

Assignment (3.5 stars)

I am a very busy man, but some days it is nice to think of how a perfect day for me would go.

I would wake up in the morning, and have a nice breakfast.

I would then get ready to head to my studio where we produce the Edward Creeper Show. You may think that it is strange that I would want to go to work on my perfect day, but it is less of a job for me, and more of an opportunity to meet new and exciting characters. Here is basically what our set looks like.

During my day on set, I would love to meet as many new people as possible. Luckily, I have met many of these characters recently, including the Red Reaper.

After leaving from work, I would like to have a nice, big dinner somewhere in town. As I talked about in a previous post, one of my favorite spots is the local diner, where I recently met Victor Barethean.

Finally, after a long day, I would head back to my house, and relax a bit before heading to bed.

For this assignment, I planned out what would be a perfect day for my character Edward Creeper, and then found images that corresponded with them. I included two other characters from ds106 to make it collaborative.

BeFunky Collage

You’re doing it wrong!

Assignment

For this assignment, we had to find a picture of someone doing something wrong. I searched on google for a while until I found a good image that I thought represented this assignment: an suv in the water along with the boat they were attempting to launch.

Collage of my Pet

Assignment

For this assignment, we had to create a collage of our pet. I used Be Funky to create the collage, and gathered all of these images from off my phone. My dog is named Spencer, and he is a dachshund. He is almost 11 years old, and he is one of the things I miss the most when I am away at college. As you can in the picture toward the bottom right, he had to have a cone on his head for around a month, after he had a toe amputated because of cancer. Luckily, he is all better now (sans one toe), and I can’t wait to see him again in a few weeks!

Bucket List Photography Assignment

Assignment

For this assignment, we had to find four pictures that describe what would be on our bucket list. I used the Be Funky website to make the collage, and found the pictures off of the internet. I previously did a writing assignment for my bucket list (linked here), so these are the same ideas, but now they are in image form.

The first image is of a Lamborghini, and reflects that I would like to drive (or own!) a supercar at some point in my life. There are plenty of different kinds to choose from, but this one is fairly recognizable among most people.

The second image is of Sydney, Australia. I have always wanted to visit Australia, and Sydney would be at the top of my list of places to see. Not only does it appear to be a beautiful place full of culture, but I would love to see the Sydney Opera House in person.

The third image is of skydiving. As I said in my previous post, I am a bit weary of heights, but this is still something that I would like to accomplish at some point in my life.

The fourth image reflects that I play tennis myself, and would one day like to play with a pro. At the very least, I would be able to learn from them, and I would love to see them play in person.

What Are you Missing Nearby

Assignment

The places listed above are near my hometown of Roanoke, Virginia.

The first image is of Carvins Cove, which is a large, protected area of forest and hiking/biking trails around a man-made lake. This lake is where Roanoke receives much of its water.

The second image is from Cascade Falls, which is a waterfall at the end of a hiking trail in Blacksburg, Virginia. Very popular with Virginia Tech students!

The third image is of Mabry Mil. This mill still operates, and is one of the most photographed places along the Blue Ridge Parkway. It also houses a restaurant and gift shop on the grounds.

The final image is McAfee Knob, which is a popular hiking trail that culminates in this spectacular view overlooking the valleys below.
