Lets Start this Story Right, Meet Secret Agent Mila Tate

Mila is no average girl, she is small pale skin dark hair, piercing green eyes and the meanest right hook you have ever seen. Mila family and friends, including her husband all believe that her job as military civilian contractor is just as ordinary as her life. Little do they know the secret underground agency she runs with that stops political assassinations around the world.

Mila is from small town in Texas. She moved to Virginia to attend the University of Virginia Law School. There she studied political law and corporate law. She later graduated and was offered a private contract with the military in dealing with legal matters with weapon supplies. While out on assignment Mila met her husband Pax, he too was a private contractor that worked for the military. The two had instant chemistry with no hopes of denying it. Pax was the most amazing person Mila had ever met and they quickly fell in love. They married quick and spent their honeymoon traveling across the world.

Mila loved Pax and would do anything to protect him, because of this she kept her little secret to herself, disguising her adventures to foreign countries as business trips. She manages well until she makes a mistake. While on assignment in Cuba, Mila is walking through the hotel she spots a familiar man. Hes tall with short brownish blonde hair cut into a crew cut with a messy top that falls perfectly. Broad shoulders, strong jaw and a tattoo on the back of his neck, “Death Before Dishonor.” Mila instantly freezes, she knows that tattoo anywhere, it’s her husbands…..but what is he doing here? He is suppose to be on business in Hong Kong……

Weekly Summary: #9

Hello Hello! I am uploading this late because I have a terrible computer, but I managed to have the Apple store pull most of my data so thankfully some of my harder work was saved!!!

Ok first thing I wrote was about the radio show. I was able to listen partly during the week but I got some good information on the radio show, Girl Power.

Check out my thoughts below!

Second I had some fun with a little web coding. This was fun for me, like a lot of fun. I twisted it by taking my fave website and store, Target, and turning it into a shopping store for secret agent. Check it out below.

Third I worked on my web assignments. I did two four star assignments.

The first one was a Buzzfeed quiz, I had a lot of fun with this one. Tell me what type of flower are you??

My second web assignment was a scary story I crafted and blogged about on Reddit. This one was interesting because I have never used Reddit before so it took me a minute to get a feel for the whole situation. I did a post on a scary story that happened to me or did it? That’s up to you to find out.

I unfortunately lost my revisit work I had so this is all I have for the post 🙁

Week #8: Daily Creates

Below are the two Daily Creates I did for this week.

The first one was what happened to Prince Charming? Who kidnapped Prince Charming? So I had a little fun with this and decided to play it up a little. We all know the Little Mermaid Ariel and we all know about her multiple sisters, so why not play on the idea she may have an evil twin sister, Aria. So if you really want to know who kidnapped Ariel’s Prince Charming you should probably investigate her evil twin.

My second Daily Create was about what my Chinese dragon is. My Chinese dragon is my necklace of the blessed Mother given to me by my grandmother when I was 14. I consider this my dragon because one time the clasp of my necklace broke. That was the worse week of my life, nothing was going my way I never slept, and I was extremely paranoid. Once I finally got my necklace fixed everything seemed right again.

Week 6 Summary

This week we really explored ways of convey art through photography and type. I think in art these are two of the most basic forms of reaching a reader! Below is my own exploration of these design principles.

First, I wrote a reflection on a short book we read in regards to these fundamental design principles. Check out what I learned below!

Second I participated in a Design Blitz. This had me pick four funadmental elements of photo design and to capture it in a photo. I work a lot and I used my job which has numerous symbols and artistic value to capture. See what I found below:

Third, we did of course another round of weekly assignments, specifically in the design section of the weekly assignments. I picked three that totaled up to 12 stars. I actually really enjoyed this and had fun, but I have to say Photoshop is really hard! I totally went in to the Photoshop and was like oh this is easy, and I was wrong. So I really felt challenged doing these weekly assignments, but I think for someone who hasn’t messed with these programs since high school I think I did pretty well.

For this one I took my name and generated some cool letters. I tried to capture my personality in the letters which is edgy, fun and unique.


For this one we were to make a Book Cover Design. I again pulled my job into this one and couldn’t help but make a guide to dealing with pool chemicals for dummies. I really couldn’t resist especially after coming home to from work today after dealing with what I dealt with.
For this one were to make a PSA Billboard! I turned my biggest pet peeve into a billboard, USE YOUR TURN SIGNAL! I can not stand people who don’t use their turn signal, so someone make this billboard legit!

Fourth I did four Daily Creates, below is my responses. And yes I like Nickleback, I’m sorry.

I LOVED THIS RESPONSE BECAUSE IT IS SO FUNNY TO ME FOR NO REASON!
I really enjoyed this Daily Create because it reminds you to always stop and listen, everyone needs someone.
This is my favorite photo from my vacation in California. I was dealing with some difficult stuff and being in the ocean air away from everything was the greatest experience!

Weekly Summary #5

This week is another hard week I have to take my computer in twice for repairs and almost didn’t get my audio files to download.

Alright first up is my Radio Bumper. I actually had to retake this like twelve times cause I kept giggling

I would talk into my phone. So here is my impression of being a radio host!

The second thing I did was the weekly assignments. THIS WAS THE STRUGGLE! My computer hates Audacity and would crash almost 80% of the time I was trying to upload a file. I haven’t used Audacity since high school, so it really took me a minute or two to really gather myself on the site. Audacity can be kind of funky but I managed and felt like I made some cool pieces! Check them out below!

The first one is my version of a mash of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

My second piece is a scary situation. I smash a scary version of Happy Birthday……listen if you dare.

My third piece is what I call going to a vicious battle but realizing its a dance battle! Telling a story with music, lets see what images you come up with.

So my third major assignment that I did was listening to “Moon Graffiti” and I also watch some videos in regards to what digital storytelling is and how to tell stories digitally. I wrote a reflection about this and actually learned quite a bit about how to tell stories digitally and manipulate and use noises and background sounds to create images for the listener to help create the story.

I also did three daily creates this week:

The first create I talked about my favorite spy books I read when I was little. The Gallagher girls are secret group of girls at a spy school, wouldn’t you want to be involved in that!

The second daily create I talked about how sound can be manipulated, which can also be a sense of digital storytelling. I talked about a Criminal Minds episode where a man manipulated wood, steam, and sand paper to create a hypno song.

The third daily create I talked about what Hotel DS 106 was hiding behind closed doors, but I good spy never gives her secrets away.

I also brainstormed some ideas for the Radio show groups. I tried to come up with ideas that fit my personality and interest and then a couple that relate to our class theme!

Fianlly the Question of the Week: How do sounds tell a story? How do they convey a sense of time and place? A sense of action?

Sounds tell a story by creating mental images in the listener’s mind. This I think is better because it allows the listener to understand the story in their own way. The creator of the digital story can incorporate sound effects and narration to help convey time and place as well as the atmosphere. For adding action just drop a sick beat and people will know whats up.
