Today we had our first ever group lab in Multimedia class.
Three words - It was torture. 
It was so confusing, and I had no idea what to do. 
I thought I had done the graph wrong, but thank goodness I did it correctly. 
I don't understand the point of the lab though - when are we ever going to use a spectrometer in life?
I don't plan on going into the textile industry or whatever. I bet my mom wouldn't even know what a spectrometer is. Or my uncle, who is the publisher of a magazine. Well, he might, but maybe he wouldn't.
Ok, I have to go....buh-bye! Have a great weekend!

Curiosity Strikes Again :(

I'm so, so curious as to what I made on the Pages Project! I worked so hard on it! 
I really do expect to get at least an A. That would be really unfair if I didn't, considering the amount of time I worked on it. 


My before picture is on top and my edited picture is on the bottom. Did you tell? If so,
can you comment on what changes I made? 
My Multimedia teacher had a picture, too. The edited picture wasn't as sharp as the original one. I don't what edits he used on IPhoto, but I know the edited image wasn't as sharp as the original one.

Hex Code Assignment

I made my hex code chart as large as I could, but it's still unreadable. Any suggestions as to what I could do about it?

Colors Galore!

In the last half of class, and after a presentation from our Multimedia teacher to explain what Hex codes, RGB (red, green, blue) and CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow & black), we were given an assignment - calculate the RGB and CMYK of various colors.
I'm not quite done with it - almost, though.
Next class period (Wednesday), I'll post the chart.
Class is almost over - buh-bye! :)

Playing with IPhoto

My assignment for today was to take a photo from stock.xchng and modify it with IPhoto. The picture on the top is the original image and the picture below it is my changed result.

Cover Page, Itinerary and Brochure

Now...I present the world Multimedia project! 

Here are the links to the three parts of my project. 

Main Document



Enjoy! :) 

I'm also wondering whether making a tour of our country on Google Earth is a grade...please don't do this to me. Google Earth is no fun :(

Wrapping Up Project

Today, I'm supposed to be wrapping up our projects. It's due Thursday, I think. 
But, on my multimedia teacher's blog, it says that when we're done, we can't play games :( 
Instead, we're supposed to go on Google Earth and stalk our houses via satellite or whatever they're called...YAY!....not. 
I don't want to play on Google Earth! I've used it before and it's so boring for me! 
I'd rather be working than that! 

Ugh, I'm ranting again now. I guess I should go "play" on Google Earth. 
Don't even say "Have Fun!" because I'm not.

I completed my conclusion today! :) 
There's not much else I can do in the....40 or so minutes between right now until I have to head off to biology, and I'm not much of a computer game player. I can't get on Facebook because....something about the district stalking Facebooks - well, at least the Facebook accounts that are used at school. Therefore, I refrain from getting on Facebook even though I really want to. I already want to go home. 
I have a project that's due Monday which I haven't started. I should probably do those this weekend. 
School dominates my life. End of story. 

PS: And no, Pauly D, that is NOT dissing the school, district or whatever. :)

Itinerary Dilemma

Okay, so I did my itinerary on a different document than my cover page. I tried to copy the pictures from my itinerary document to my cover page, but they don't look the same. I really worked hard to make my itinerary look a specific way, and if I have to put the itinerary on my cover page, I don't know what I'm going to do cause my itinerary itself looks so professional and when I transferred the photos to the cover page, they aren't able to be on the sides like on my itinerary document. 
Anybody who reads this post, please comment with suggestions as to what I should do.
My idea is to say on the cover page "See separate file for itinerary", but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that. 
Any other ideas? 
Help please!

Brochure = Done!

My brochure is done, and my cover page is updated (it now has my introduction, my updated work log and bibliography), and I had to upload it as a PDF. 
Of course, the PDF document doesn't look as amazing as the actual brochure on Pages, but that's okay. It's actually kind of blurry. I hope it's readable, at least. If not, then I'm sorry...
I'm going to post the link to both my cover page and brochure here, so be sure to look at it and tell me what you think! :) 

Updated Cover Page

Brochure Update

Finally, finally, finally I'm done with the brochure! (I hope...) 
But I'm done with my itinerary, and my introduction, so I'm not sure what else I can do. 
The work log is a pain to keep up with. I don't see the point of it, really. I guess it's just one of those teacher things to make sure we did our work and how we used our class time and the proof is documenting it. 
The bibliography is a pain to do but I understand the point of it. And it's easy when you use sites like Noodle Tools. 
Anyway, I am especially proud of both my brochure and itinerary. I worked really hard on them, at home and at school. The cover page is so/so, but I worked a lot on that, too. 
My new Mac laptop is great, but I still use my old Dell sometimes. I already have Adobe Flash Player on my Dell, so I use that when I want to play games...which I'll probably do right now since I'm done with everything.
Buh-bye! :)

I had to re-upload my cover page because I had accidentally put my full name in it (which I'm not supposed to do).
Since I got my new Mac Saturday, I sent my cover page, brochure and itinerary to myself to work on at home :) I might be able to get things done before everybody else, which is good.
Class over. Time to go to biology (ugh). Bye! :)
