The Slogan of the Procrastination Nation is ….Hold On I’ll Tell You Later.

Week 5 is OVAAAAAA!!


Every week I say I’m not gonna procrastinate next week, and every week I end up procrastinating…. Oh well. I got it all done though, so whatever works?

1. Read and Reflect on The Vignelli Canon:
I read & reflected. I found this to be very interesting, and it really tested my knowledge of art and design. You can read my reflection HERE!

2. Watch some films: Your choice:
I watched Double Indemnity due to the fact that Kelsey and I live tweeted about it last week. You can read all about my responses HERE.
Kelsey and I watched in luxury with popcorn, sour patch kids, and some wine. What is really a better way to do DS106 work?

3. Complete a DesignBlitz:
I was sitting in the front seat of the STRUGGLE BUS for this assignment.
I was so preoccupied studying for my History of Math and Chaotic Dynamical Systems tests, that I totally slacked on this assignment. I was able to complete it, with a little help of some pictures from back home. It is amazing how pictures you’ve already taken can change in meaning when you apply them a different way. However, you can see my lovely photography skills and a description of what design features I featured HERE.

4. Do your DailyCreates:
ALWAYS my favorite part of the week. I ended up portraying my Superpower, creating a fun Family Tree and making Food into Art.

5. Complete at least 12 stars of design assignments
12 stars is a lot, with 6 dedicated to the beautiful Blair Morgan, but not when you are an assignment bank champ. *insert muscle emoji*  I love building up Blair’s story. I decided to do the following assignments:

IF you lost count, that brings me to a whopping 14.5 stars. CAN YOU SAY OVER ACHIEVER! Woooooot. Anyway, I had a lot of fun creating all of these designs. I definitely pushed my limits, and went above and beyond what I thought I was capable of. AND I had fun doing it.

6. Inform Yourself about Copyright & Creative Commons:
I definitely informed myself, and you can read my reflection HERE. I learned a lot reading the pieces and watching the videos. There is a lot to know about copyright, but there also seems to be a lot of loop holes as well. I hope to learn more as the semester goes on.
