Summary of Learning: The Final Countdown

Summary of Learning: The Final Countdown

Here we are, the final blog post! It was fun to re-read my posts from the course of the semester and recall each assignment. In turn, I also recalled how I was feeling each week based on my tone and the subject of my blog posts. There were some assignments I enjoyed more than others and that was reflected in my writing because, with some posts, it was easy to fill a page while others required more effort. As I…

And If You Take a Look to the Left, There is the Finish Line

And If You Take a Look to the Left, There is the Finish Line

Well, here we are. Somehow, someway it is the end of another semester. Only the end of this one marks that I am halfway done with college- AH! #notthinkingaboutit Anyways, back to the classroom. Last official¬†project? Done. Last day of class? Check. Last day in the blessed Ralph Sewell lab I have come to love? Yep. I made it! #praisehands As I reflect on this semester (full reflection coming next week), I want to recognize that I have made great…

If Only It Would Have Been An Eggroll…

If Only It Would Have Been An Eggroll…

I love Chinese food. Especially egg rolls. And I would be lying if I didn’t say that every time I hear the term “b-roll” my mind drifts to my favorite Chinese restaurant and their fabulous shrimp egg rolls. Somehow the yummy, crunch of an eggroll is more appealing to me than either of the video editing programs we worked with this week. ūüėČ I am teasing- I do love a good egg roll- but the video editing really wasn’t too…

It’s CRUNCH TIME Baby!!

It’s CRUNCH TIME Baby!!

I have been and will always be a bit of a perfectionist. Okay, maybe more than just a bit. But I have had to learn to curve these tendencies and let a few things go.. Usually for the sake of time. So yesterday, when we were assigned three projects and had to complete them in an hour and fifteen minutes, my heart started to race and my adrenaline was pumping. Thankfully there is no shortage of media coverage and stories…

I Didn’t Know What I Had Until It Was Gone…

I Didn’t Know What I Had Until It Was Gone…

I didn’t know what I had until it was gone… While this statement is usually uttered after a break-up in regards to a romantic relationship, I am borrowing it to describe my relationship with InDesign. I don’t know if I am at a place where I want to say I love it, but when I (hopefully and eventually get comfortable with Adobe), I think InDesign will always be my first love. Perhaps because it is the program I started with…

Practice Makes Progress

Practice Makes Progress

Fair warning: Today’s post is going to be short and sweet because I woke up really sick and trying to type is making¬†me rather dizzy. Anyways, this was a good week and I¬†am becoming more skilled with the keyboard shortcuts and remembering where certain toolbars are within the InDesign system with more ease. I still have my clumsy moments of meaning to click on one box and instead, grabbing another and then I end up moving a border that is…

I Have Never Felt So Close to Age 75

I Have Never Felt So Close to Age 75

Last week, we hit the ground running into the world of design and I am pleased to report, that although I am slightly overwhelmed and realize I have A TON to learn, I am excited for the semester ahead. Here is a quick recap of what we have done in class and what I have learned: Day 1: On this day, Professor Croom presented a lesson on the origin of typography and fonts. I found it to be fascinating. It…

I Learned That I Can’t Draw and Now I’m Here

I Learned That I Can’t Draw and Now I’m Here

From the time I was little, I have been fun, imaginative and creative. I was the QUEEN of dress-up and would be a princess one minute, a mom the next and then a random hobo of sorts ten minutes later when I couldn’t decide what to wear. *pictures should go here– technical difficulties!!* I could usually be found playing with my Barbie and American Girl dolls, and from that time, have always loved the idea of creating and designing. I…
