Assignment Bank #3

I decided to do the create your own room assignment because…who wouldn’t want to have the room of their dreams?! Heres to everything I wish my room could be if I had the money.

I picked those rooms out cause they looked really cozy, and the bed is what makes it or breaks it for me. If my bed is not comfortable or doesn’t look like it, then i can’t sleep there. But every other decoration is basically with a map, cause that is what I normally have in my room. I liked the idea of the dresser with the writing on what is in it, because that is really organized and would help a lot when you’re trying to get ready. I chose that bathtub, because lets be honest who wouldn’t like to have that view when they are taking a relaxing bath.

Dear Future Husband,

As of January 17, 2016 I have no idea who you are, but I am excited to find out in the near future. Last year I went through something really difficult that made me realize and fully know the kind of man I want to be with/share a future with. So here it is: a man who is sweet, makes me laugh, picks me up when i’m down, and fully knows Jesus. Maybe it’s too much to ask for, but when it really comes down to it, if you and I can have a meaningful conversation about the lord and agree (or disagree) on some stuff and still love each other, then thats all I want. Yet, as for me I promise to love always love you even when I hate you, to be kind, and considerate and to listen when you need it the most. You and I, we don’t have to be like the Nicholas Sparks movies, we just have to be real. So here is to me hoping that our future will be full of the lord, laughter, love, and friendship.

After all, the GooGoo Dolls were right when they said:

“I’ll be kind, if you’ll be faithful
You be sweet and I’ll be grateful
Cover me with kisses dear
Lighten up the atmosphere
Keep me warm inside our bed
I got dreams of you all through my head”

Love,

Your future wife

Weekly Summary (week one)

I have heard many different opinions about this class, both good and bad. When I registered for ds106, I had no idea what to expect. I wanted to take the class because it sounded really interesting and super helpful to know for the future. I am coming into this class blindly (because I am not tech-davy, I had to get every single account) but with a great attitude! When I first saw the welcome email, I got a little scared that it was a lot and I was not gonna be able to do it, but I did not want to drop it. Then when I started doing the bootcamp stuff, it was not as bad as I thought. Granted this is the introduction week, and it could only get harder from here, I very much enjoyed exploring through those website and creating all that media. As far as the whole western theme, I think it is a cool idea that the class is based on it. I don’t know much about western but after reading those articles and listening to podcasts, I have come to appreciate the Western lifestyle. It has a different aspect than what you see now a days. The most interesting thing that I found from reading all that is that I had no idea that western had its subgenera. I was just familiar with the classical form which includes cowboys, crimes, horses etc. I think the most frustrating/hardest part about the whole thing was creating the flickr account. That confused me so much, the website was just all over and I had no idea how to grab URL’s to embed. Also embedding was really difficult to understand, it was not working for a while but then I realized that I was doing it wrong. But I really enjoyed creating and designing my own website, as well as picking out the URL name. It was a little easier than I expected because the email scared me at first. I am really excited to see what this class has to offer, and get my creative side out of me in different ways. I would like to say that I am pretty creative but definitely not with social media. I prefer drawing, and coloring but I can’t wait to learn and be more educated in this class.
