The End of Week Five!

As week five comes to a close I find myself feeling accomplished. Going into this week I was nervous because I had no experience with audio prior to this week. I knew about Soundcloud but never used it and I never heard of Audacity. I was thankful to see there was a resources page I could review to inform me how both Soundcloud and Audacity work. My favorite assignment for this week was creating my character. I loved having fun with that assignment! I chose to create the character of Alex Whitmore by filling in a resume with all her qualities and traits. After creating my character, I then listened to Jab Abumrad talk about his perspective on radio. I found his views interesting and will be considering his thoughts more in two weeks when I work with audio again. On Thursday night, I listened to the DS106 radio. That was super cool and I find it amazing that our university has a radio station for anyone to listen to. I felt connected with my classmates and professor Burtis while listening to the post-apocalyptic story, The Earth Abides and tweeting about it. Frequency 2156 was probably my second favorite assignment I completed. The site itself was amazing, let along the fact I got to contribute to it with my very own dispatch! I’ll definitely be showing others, outside of DS106, this site The two extra assignments I chose to complete were the “Call Me, Beep Me” assignment and the “Collection of Favorite Sounds” assignment. I liked the end result of my favorite sounds mashup, and had a lot of fun with the 911 call. These two assignments helped me get my feet wet in Audacity, but I still have a lot of to learn about the platform. 

To close this post up I just wanted to ask anyone reading this…how have you been feeling lately? I have been feeling a bit off this past week. At night I get the cold sweats, a fever, and nausea. I wake up with a sore throat and throughout the day I am very lethargic. At first, I thought it was the expired deli meat I ate but the symptoms have been persistent for close to a week now. Is anyone else feeling the same way I am? I notice my skin has gotten paler, seems to be getting a yellowish tint to it. I may just have to head into the doctor tomorrow and see what this is all about…
