In living the life that we do, how much should we leave behind.  Take it all with you!

Common Everyday Object

FinalChangedEverydayObject

 

I chose my Mason Jar because it’s a Common Everyday Object to me – capitalization intentional. I also chose this project because Dr. Rish implied that this project might not make the cut for Dr. Crovitz. I’m not sure about the purple wall, or even the green table, but I’m very happy with the pink tones in the water. I feel positively Van Goghian!!

Don’t ruin other peoples’ lives.. read!

Read Poster_Great Gatsby

 

This assignment was to create a 1960s READ poster using a book character or some sort of variation. I chose to used a quote from Daisy Buchanan in the text The Great Gatsby and used a photo of Carey Mulligan as Daisy in The Great Gatsby (2013). The quote was chosen because a major portion of the plot of the book is dedicated to the things that Daisy and her husband Tom do due to their boredom with life. Perhaps if they had found a hobby, such as reading, their lives might have been more fulfilling and others’ lives wouldn’t be ruined. This photo was created using PowerPoint. Link to assignment

Pretty Little Liars Read Poster

Pretty Little Liars is full of literary allusions.  This READ poster references one of the greatest American novels, The Great Gatsby, as alluded to through the television show, Pretty Little Liars.  This poster was created in hopes that fans of the popular television show will explore these allusions and find clues through reading literature.  Read Poster

I’d rather hear a dog bark too…

shakespeare cat

 

This is not the ds106 assignment that I really wanted to do; however, the first one that I did, I did the wrong way.  Because I was running out of time, I went w/ the Shakespeare LOLcat.  People seem to like cats…I am not a big fan though.  But I do like dogs, and I remembered this line from Beatrice in the play Much Ado About Nothing, which mentions dogs, so I went with it.  If I could go back and do this assignment again, I’d do the Album cover.  That was pretty cool…I started it, but we started to move on, so here is my LOLcat.
