My Own Digital Assignment 2

The thing I like most about these assignments is that it gives you insight on another person even though you have never met them and probably have never seen them. With that being said, I wanted to create an assignment that would allow us to get to know the person on the other side of the computer a little better. The assignment I created is a writing assignment! Check it out below or by clicking here!

 

Title: That Bucket List Though

Description:

Have you ever made a mental list of things you wanted to do or try or jokingly said “That’s going on my bucket list!” Well, now is the time to stop messing around and actually make a bucket list. Write down a list of at least five things that you want to do or try, but do not stop there! Give the world a reason why those things are on your list regardless of how crazy or lame it may be.

Example:

Bucket list

1. See the seven wonders of the world.

I mean they don’t call it the seven wonders of the world for nothing! How cool would it be to travel and see such amazing sights.

2. Skydiving

I know a lot of people that have done this, but I am absolutely terrified. I love flying and heights do not bother me, but the whole stomach in the mouth feeling is not my thing. One day I will conquer this fear!

3. Deep Sea Fishing

Oh how I love fishing! However, I am getting bored catching small fish. I want to kick it up a couple notches and catch something massive.

4. Camel Racing

Sounds crazy, but this is an actual thing. I told a friend that is from Austrailia that I wanted to ride a camel and she then told me that there is such a thing as camel racing. After hearing about that, riding a camel got replaced with camel racing on the bucket list because how many people can actually say they raced a camel?

5. Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef

I took a tropical ecology course and instantly became interested in the subject. The Great Barrier Reef is a world phenomenon and I would really like to see it with my own two eyes and learn more about the life that resides there and how it plays a roll in the environment.

 

Photography Experience

I do not have a tremendous amount of experience with photography. Over the years, I have developed more of an interest in the hobby and therefore have spent more time playing around with different ideas. With that being said, I take lots of photos, mainly of animals and scenery, but my experience is simply from experimenting. I try to capture the beautiful sights that I am witnessing and portray those visuals accurately. However, sometimes pictures just do not do certain things justice. At least that is what I have always thought. After reading the articles and watching the video (which I really enjoyed) I now have the beginning of a new perspective about photography in general. There is so much more to a photo than I ever could have possibly imagined. The geometry and most importantly, the simplicity is overwhelmingly important. In order for my photos to improve, I need to be more attentive to the simple details and appreciate them. In one of the articles, it was pointed out that the best pictures are taken in the worst or less ideal circumstances. Even though I truly believe this, I need kick up my spontaneity a notch and keep snapping photos even if I deem the situation imperfect.

Hey ds106 community!

Hi everyone! Not a big fan of social media because I find it to much to keep up with, but I am hoping I will manage to become more tech savvy by the end of this ds106 course. Looking forward to meeting all of you via the web!
