Amber's Modern Life

My name is Amber and I am 17. I am a very quiet person who, when around the right people, is a very fun person. I read and write a lot, and I am in my own world most of the time. Thrift shopping is my wardrobe. My goal is to get into Texas State and start the fall semester next year, majoring in Psychology or Biology.


09/01/14: The most eventful day that has occurred so far this school year is the day i met Michael. He is really fun to talk to, and very cool.

09/04/14: I selected the Photoshop tutorial to edit and cut out backgrounds. I chose this tutorial because sometimes you can take a really great picture, and whats in the background can ruin the entire thing. Also, i want to learn how to insert some things like the sunsets or the moon, but also make look realistic.

09/08/14: 5 things i want to learn or gain in this class; I want to gain more knowledge in Photoshop.  I want to learn how to edit pictures better, and make backgrounds look more realistic. I also want to learn how to zombify myself and make myself into a vampire.

09/18/14: "Describe two designs that can be completed using the pen tool." One project I could do with the pen tool is make shapes. You trace around a certain area on a picture and the pen tool copies the exact shape. Another project is to outline a shape and cut out people from pictures.

09/23/14: The quiz I took on kahoot was Michael's. The questions were very challenging, but also very easy. It was made to make you think about the question, but not for long. Most of the questions were the ones you knew easily if you actually payed attention to the photo shop and the tools you used in it.

09/25/14: Day of the dead begins on October 31st and ends on November 2nd. It is celebrated by Mexican and Hispanic populations. Its purpose is for remembrance of friends and family members who have died. Sugar skulls are the symbol of Dia de los muertos.


10/23/14:  What is the color theory? Color Theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual effects of a specific color combination. What is the Color Wheel? a abstract circle organization of color hues around a circle that shows relationships between primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors. Color scheme is important because the way the colors used work together is what makes the art so beautiful. The impact of different colors work just like fireworks. The more the colors work in harmony, the more it attracts attention.

12/1/14: One helpful thing i did over the holiday was help my mother with the thanksgiving dinner. I cut up the apples and bananas for the fruit salad, and i even made the pumpkin pie. I also invited my grandmother and grandfather to come eat dinner with us. I gave a plate to our neighbors because they couldn't afford a Thanksgiving dinner, and they were very thankful about it.
