Sunday, April 8 

Happy Easter!! My family doesn’t really celebrate this traditional holiday but I do because it holds religious significance for me. Anyway, I woke up spent the day chilling and doing homework at James’ apartment. (once again…) 





Saturday, April 7

Woke up at 11:30am! Spent the day at James’ apartment working real hard on these video/mashup assignments. So far I have completed 22 stars for weeks 9-11. 8 more stars to finish by Sunday! Oh I also made a little adventure to the newly constructed Sweet Frog right by Giant. 


Stumbled upon this pretty little stream on my way to seaco.



Mary Wash is so beautiful in the spring.


I’m addicted and I just can’t get enough..

Friday, April 6

Wait what… today’s Friday? Guess I’ll spend it working on ds106 video assignments. 🙂 

Thursday, April 5

Today has been a relatively productive and fun day. I had a study party with a friend, went to noodles & company for dinner, studied some more, and watched… Teen Wolf with friends because I don’t watch that kind of show alone. 


I always love this little river(?) that flows below the bridge to the nest.



My favorite spot on campus so far. I love walking through this bridge (or whatever you want to call it). I can admire the river on the left and lovely bushes and leaves on the right. Of course I had to edit the picture to create this nature-y effect that really brings out the true beauty of this scene.


we are being really productive… really. 🙂


Captured inside a moving car, on our way to noodles & company.


Yeah, we finished everything. No big deal.

Wednesday, April 4

The weather’s been treating me very well today. So how can I not take a picture today? I hope it stays wonderful the rest of the week because I definitely need something to look forward to besides all these tests and assignments due. 




Tuesday, April 3

Read, study, homework, life problems, etc etc etc.

Monday, April 2

I have been very productive today. I registered for Fall 2012 classes, studied for upcoming bio test, studied for upcoming health test, and researched a bit on nursing programs. I also plan on taking summer classes for my intended major. I count today as a good day. 🙂

Last 5 stars! 30/30

Synopsis: For this assignment, select scenes from 3-5 movies. These scenes should represent scenes that changed your life or made some sort of dramatic, traumatic, lasting, or emotional impact on you. When you have selected those scenes, create a video that shows the scenes and includes audio/video of you describing what it is about the scene that made a significant impact on you, what you are fond of about the scenes, what scares you, what you remember thinking when you were a child, etc. Feel free to be liberal in your interpretation of the instructions. Keep in mind, however, that the primary point is to recall 3-5 movie scenes that have made a lasting impact on you (whatever the reason for that impact may be.) When you are finished, upload the video to your blog, and, If you are inspired, expand on the reasons why you connect with the specific scenes in your video. Check out an example here: http://blog.rossannamarie.me/movie-scenes/

I knew I had to do this video assignment because I just have a mental archive of a lot of great, inspiring, and emotional movies I have ever seen. There were just too many awesome films, but I went with the top three that first popped in my head. In my video, I talked about The Time Traveller’s Wife, Toy Story 3, and Ip Man. At first I tried to keep the video short but I didn’t want to chop out too many sections of a scene because I was afraid the fluidity and sequence would be lost. I’m pretty confident eight minutes wouldn’t really bore anyone since these are scenes are pretty darn appealing. Let me know what you think!
