This week proved to be exceedingly stressful for me. I guess it’s that time in the school year when all of your classes are beginning to pick up and expectations are rising. Needless to say, I had a million and one things due this week and not nearly enough time – but I somehow managed to successfully do it all. So let us begin, shall we?
I started this week off by completing my daily creates. You can find them and my thoughts of them below:

I really enjoyed this daily create. I love sharing my weight loss story with anyone who will listen. Generally, people find it inspiring and have a list of questions to ask me about it. I thoroughly enjoy helping people out whenever I possibly can, so it is always a lot of fun for me to share my progress and pointers with people who want to make the same change I did! I actually met my current roommates because they asked to begin working out with me.

This daily create was a no brainer. When I saw the topic, my immediate response was to post a picture of my favorite book(s). I personally own all seven books and I have shed many tears while reading them all. Thank you George Martin, thank you.

I promise you I am not as vain as I made myself appear this week through my daily creates, but when I saw this topic I knew I didn’t possess the type of photography skills needed to capture a really cool shadow picture. Therefore, I stumbled upon this old selfie of me. My old room used to have the BEST lighting for selfies and one day the light was shining through the trees just right and voilà – out came this photograph of a “shady girl.”
My next goal for the week was to complete my assignment banks. On top of completing one of the two assignments professor Bond listed, I was also instructed to complete six stars worth of assignments. Below you can find my work on them:
I really loved this assignment. I was surprised how easy it was for a three star assignment. While I was creating this collage, I pretty much took a walk down memory lane. Something that should have only taken me ten minutes to complete, in turn, took me about an hour because I couldn’t stop looking at old pictures and reminiscing on the good times.
For my next three star assignment, I decided to complete the Newspaper Blackout Poetry task. Below you can find my detailed post:
I also found this assignment to be easy for the amount of stars given to it. However, more creativity was needed from my end and I love being creative. I actually did this assignment while I was at work one night. I grabbed one of the local magazines off of the host stand and tried to find a depressing article in order to tell the story I wanted to. I could not have found a more perfect article to use! A lot of fun!
Lastly, I chose to complete the Life of a Superhero assignment out of the choice I was given by professor Bond. Below you can find my detailed post:
I promised a rant, well here it comes. I thought I was good with technology. I thought: “Oh, Gimp. This should be easy. I can complete this assignment quickly and be done with it.” HA. When I tell you I spent hours and I honestly mean hours on this assignment, I am not over exaggerating. I had this elaborate picture planned out in my head, but I couldn’t illustrate it because using Gimp was like trying to solve the pythagorean theorem for the first time. It was really reassuring and nice to see all of the positive feedback from my peers though. They made me want to try to learn Gimp better and improve my skills.
The last task I completed this week was the photoblitzer. Below is a link to my detailed post:
This was by far my favorite assignment not only of the week, but of the entire semester thus far. I remember when I was first reading through the assignments for this week, I was like: “What the heck? A 20 minute photoblitz? I ain’t got time for this.” I initially freaked out thinking it was going to be this long, editing process. So needless to say, I was relieved when I found out it was actually a really fun assignment. I’m going to recommend it to my friends. I would love to see what they come up with.
Lastly, I was asked to critique my own photography skills and then find examples of certain photography tricks in superhero movies. Below are both of my posts:
