Feedback on Nike Bauer

Nicholas Bauernschmitt

The design of the site is very personable, while also still being clean and professional. The brand is immediately established as Nick Bauer, an athlete, with the logo and your name (Nick changed to Nike to establish the athletic aspect of your blog). One thing which would make your website’s design more cohesive is picking a colour out of that logo (the yellow/orange/red/purple/blue gradient) to be your accent colour instead of the green which you currently have. Or if you really like the green, incorporate the green into the logo as well. The photo of you (I’m assuming it’s you) as the backdrop behind your website title and the link to your about me section makes the website personable. The personability of your site is further emphasized when you go to the about section and you introduce yourself as  Nicholas Bauernschmitt, but your friends call you Bauer – then you sign off the post with “Bauer” to establish that visitors on your site are friends.

A few small things about navigating your site – when you try to click the red widget “About Me” on your homepage, it asks you to sign into word press – I could only access your “About Me” section from the top menu bar. Another suggestion is to break up your “PUB101” category into mini categories for process posts, mini assignments, and essays to make it easier to find stuff on the site.

Overall, your site looks great! It’s really personal and inviting, you make everyone feel welcome and like a friend you haven’t met yet. Having what I’m assuming is your home address in the contact section could be a bit too friendly though.

Mini Assignment #2: Not all superheroes wear capes

The picture was taken at Anandpur Sahib, Punjab, India.

Hi everyone!

My name is Kamala and I am a mother of three. I am not the typical superhero that you see in movies. I don’t have a nice costume to wear or a fancy outfit that makes me stand out from the rest. Truth be told I am just an ordinary working-class woman but what makes me special is the superpower I possess. There are many more out there like me but we like to stay lowkey. The power I possess is of motherhood also sometimes known as the power of resilience. I am a single mother to three beautiful young children who I love the most in the world. I sell toys during the day and finally get to spend time with my children at night. With whatever time I am able to spend with them I try to teach them morals and embed values within them. I teach them to be honest, work hard, and most importantly I teach them to be kind to others because you never know what someone is going through. The people in my life haven’t been so kind to me yet you would think people respect superheroes. I work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and get no days off. When I am at work I’m busy selling toys and when I am at home I immersed in serving the needs of my family. The workload is never-ending, there is always something that needs my attention. Whether it be my mischievous 7-year-old who always picks up fights with the neighborhood kids or the leaking roof in my home.

Usually, people like me aren’t heard enough or silenced by society. So, I am truly grateful for this opportunity to be heard and recognized. After all, people like me run the world as Beyonce said. I would like to end by encouraging everyone to be kind to others even if they don’t look like you or talk like you.

Relevant Memes

I made this meme to reflect the experiences which I witness on the downtown east side. People who use substances often express a desire for sobriety, but they are unsure how to survive sobriety due to the trauma they have experienced in their past.

Poison Ivy’s Guide to Wearing Green

Hi everybody, Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley here. However, most of you will know me by the name of Poison Ivy. I have decided to come on here and give some styling tips. Also, just a little disclaimer, I am writing this article without using seduction and/or mental manipulation through the use of plant pheromones. I only use my power on my enemies. With that being said, any styling tips that I give can be used at your own discretion and incorporated into your wardrobe however you would like. But, it is scientifically proven that wearing green enhances your appearance. Take it from me, I am a doctor after all.
If you know anything about me, you know that my favourite colour is green! Therefore, I am here to share with you guys some of my favourite ways to style the colour green.

A monochromatic suit is always a look! Captivate the attention of everyone in the room with an iconic all green pantsuit or jumpsuit.

Let’s make one thing clear, Ivy is my thing. But you can always incorporate other floral patterns into your outfits. I love this sheer floral lace moment at Gucci SS 2016 show!

A fashion tip that I have is to not be afraid to mix different shades of green! Neon green, dark green, pastel green, and metallic green! wear them all and be proud, nothing looks better than confidence. Be courageous in your fashion efforts.

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you consider wearing green more often, then you can look almost as good as me!

Hulk Smash

Credit Hdq Walls

As a professional in demolition and destroying things, I have to say, smashing is easy when everything can be smashed. When you try to demolish certain things and not others, that’s when things get tricky. I am used to beating up the bad guys, smashing cars, and crushing buildings. So when Adam asked me to help him with his demolition, I was less than trilled.

Since I couldn’t smash everything but there was heavy lifting to be done, I was super careful in doing what I was doing. I had to make sure that smashing the drywall didn’t take out the pipes and studs behind the wall. You see all these home shows on HGTV where the people look like they have a ton of fun smashing things and breaking things but let me just say, doing this instead of destroying bad guys is so much more work with bad guys, I just go full force and beat them until they’ve had what they deserve, but with this stupid house, I can’t just smash. I think I will just stick to beating up bad guys and not demolishing houses.

Quasi GIF

Mini Assignment 6

Fall down 10 times but get up 11 right??

Here is a quasi-GIF that wears two hats: one that passes as a never ending short video loop that normally constitutes a GIF due to the amount of times I fall over and over again. And secondly, I hope this video inspires you to try- regardless of how many times you may fall down in the process.

The Snapshot GIF

The word ” GIF’ stands for Graphics Interchange Formats, a file that supports both static and animated images. I am notorious for using GIFS in text messages because sometimes that’s the best way to express myself! While I use GIFS almost on the daily, I have no experience in making them. Luckily imgflip helped make this process easy.

The concept of my GIF is a behind the scenes look at taking a photo. I set up my tripod and camera, pressed record, and counted down from three before taking a flash photo with my disposable film camera. I edited the video in Final Cut Pro, speeding up the first clip, and joining it with the second clip. Overall, it was a really fun activity and I am happy with how it turned out!

Mini Assignment #6 – Gif

Friends! We’re almost at the end of the semester!!

Online school has been a roller coaster. There have definitely been fun moments, but I think we’ll all be feeling a bit of relief once we can finally close our computers and get ready for Christmas.

One day at a time.
