My Own Digital Creation

Have you ever wanted to travel, but do not have the time and money? Or maybe you are a world traveler and think you have seen it all. Spend some time and find at least four places to visit that are near you. It is amazing all the things that we miss and take for granted near our own homes. Make a picture collage of the places you would be interested in visiting and then add text to the picture. Between the inspiring pictures and the text so you do not forget the location, you’re bound to discover new things near you!

Places to go

 

Sunshine, Sunshine

This is one of the animated GIF assignments I chose to complete for three stars. This assignment required me to select a video of my favorite musician. To be completely honest, I do not have a favorite music artist. I enjoy a broad range of music and what I decide to listen to depends mostly on how my day is going. Therefore, my “favorite” can change daily.

The cloudy skies, frequent thunderstorms, and drop in temperature over the past few days is what inspired me to chose “Sunshine” by Matisyahu to create a GIF. The particular part of the video I use I chose simply because I found it inspiring. Matisyahu is throwing away that extra weight he is carrying around, which in this case is a book bag filled with sand. Then he takes off on a motorcycle into the sunset. Pretty corny, but I think we all need to be reminded to get rid of the junk holding us down and then walk away.

This GIF was created using Gyazo, which I found really easy to use. All I had to do was download the Gyazo program and record the part of the video I wanted. Then the GIF was created, url copied, and uploaded here!

 

A Serious Crime Was Committed Today

I randomly decided to be domesticated late last night and made brownies. As of this afternoon, half of the brownies have gone missing. Since my family has been the only people near the brownies, one of them must be the culprit. However, they are all denying going anywhere near the brownies. I like my chocolate so such denial will not go unattended. I used Microsoft Word to create a suspect board with fake names (did not feel like it was appropriate to criminalize my family with such a serious crime) and then took a screenshot to show the world.

Only If Life Worked Like This

If I had it my way, I would travel the world and go wherever I wanted whenever I wanted and stay however long I wanted. With that being said, here is my dream itinerary! Not to sure this would work for to many people, but I was clearly out to please myself when creating this!

If I Was Rich Enough to Own a Sports Team

Oh how nice it would be to have enough money to own a sports team. Actually, you really do not need money to create a sports team if you have people willing to participate! Therefore, I am dreaming big and creating a logo in case I ever have the urge to form my own team. My sports team would consist of anything horse related since after all, that sums up my life. Having the name “Equine Enthusiasts” covers all aspects of the equine world!

My Life As A Horse Addict

Had a lot of fun with this visual assignment! I used Animoto to create this video. It is a great video creator. Unfortunately, in order to get rid of the watermark, you must pay to upgrade. With that being said, I apologize for the distraction. If anyone has any suggestions as to a better program please let me know. The reason I chose horses to tell my life story is because, as cliche as this may sound, horses really are my life. I am sure you can tell that from watching the video. Hope you enjoyed an can see a little more into what my hobby (and job) is like!
