Final Reflection

This semester has been a long journey. I didn’t know what to except from this course. Let alone understand digital story telling. I’m very old fashion and love to stay in my own bubble. I wasn’t comfortable posting online, and struggled to post sometimes. I enjoyed the #dda’s because it was a way for me to get out of my comfort zone and get creative. A true highlight for me is understanding, that when I need help, I should definitely […]

A Letter from Venflr Xexiatgm

Dear Victoria, I can see you have grown as a writer, and as a digital artist. Your journey has just begun. It is time for you to spread your wings, and write, write, write. You should not be afraid or intimidated by what others may say. Just prepare yourself for a long journey. Most writers have to have a good back bone, and a great imagination. I can tell you have both. You must only have the confidence to see […]

#DDA and Weekly updates

I’m not sure which week we are on anymore. I can barely keep track since we are moving in a different direction. I fumbled in class a few times when we went through mission one. My laptop would not save the avatar so I had to play with my phone and laptop. I was very frustrated, but didn’t want any help because I knew that after playing around with my computer, I would eventually figure it out. I do want […]

Week 9- Becoming a Writer

Well it’s official. I’ve been writing everyday this week, ever since we had class. I have the writers bug. I can’t stop writing and editing poems. I only officially finished one that I posted earlier this week. I was so inspired from everyone. All of the poems were so moving, raw, and inspirational. I cried most of the class. If only I had a poem to read for the class. I really enjoyed everyones poems and short stories. Each person […]

Inspiration

Class was amazing tonight. An emotional rollercoaster for me. Everyone’s poems and short stories brought me to tears. I could not find anything worth sharing, but I was inspired to write after class. This poem is about my grandmother that I lost 13 years ago. I hope you all enjoy. MAMA It’s been years now, and I still miss you. I remember your sweet perfume. I remember your light brown freckles, Against your pale white skin. I can hear you […]

Week ….. I can’t remember

I can’t remember what week we are on. I’m all over the place. I’ve had two horrible weeks, starting from spring break. My twin sister was in the hospital during spring break, and then I got sick last week with a throat infection and congestion in my chest and nose. But enough about me and my hectic two weeks. I am going to attempt to do the audio, even though I hate the sound of my voice, and the fact […]

In the Mist of Chaos

This week has been a whirlwind. I enjoyed class this week, from making the human graph, to making gifs and memes. I could not stop giggling in class this week. I was pushed outside of my comfort zone, and enjoyed every minute of it. https://t.co/aywZVh6b9e via @giphy @netnarr @hrhingold — Victoria Sardinas (@Vick_Sardinas) February 22, 2017 Waiting Skeleton https://t.co/0xYRG1QyCL via @imgflip @netnarr — Victoria Sardinas (@Vick_Sardinas) February 22, 2017 Batman Slapping Robin https://t.co/qx6FLCw0Ho via @imgflip @netnarr — Victoria Sardinas (@Vick_Sardinas) […]

Boom Boom Boom= Week 5

After hearing the scene from the movie Good Will Hunting, I was amazed by the picture  I was able to see in my head. I never watched the movie, but I have heard about it. I could picture Sean Maguire played by Robin Williams having a conversation with Will Hunting played by Matt Damon in a city street or a park. I could hear vehicles passing by, people having side conversations and passing by. I could hear birds chirping and […]

Thump, Thump,Thump, and Create

This week has been filled with many adventures. I enjoyed every minute of class this past week. Pechaflickr was a huge highlight for me. The first time we played as a class I was nervous and excited at the same time. The second time around I was ready to add into a wacky storyline. Overall class this week reminded me of elementary and middle school, when I had to write a story on a photograph that my teacher picked out. […]

Twitter Bots

I didn’t know what to expect when I tweeted a twitter bot. I didn’t really understand why I was tweeted a bot, but I decided on embarking on this journey. The bot responded within ten minutes or less of me tweeting it. It referred me to three different twitter accounts. The questioned I asked was “can you suggest any digital alchemist bots? I am now going to explore the pages of the accounts referred to me. I hope to see […]

What is Digital Alchemy?

Digital Alchemy is the way we tell stories in a digital world. This digital world can be a blog, website, twitter, facebook, and/or instagram. Social media help us network with people digitally all around the world. The stories we tell through this network spreads like wild fire, because one story can spark a person to start telling another story. This whole network is magical because one story can spread inspiring others to write their own digital alchemy. This alchemy is […]
