Article About Sensory Colors

This article described how colors can do different things to people without them realizing it. For example, the color yellow is the most mentally fatiguing. To be in a room with yellow walls is mentally exhausting, and is not a good work environment. Blue and light green, on the other hand, are good for office walls, as they are more mellow and welcoming colors. I found it interesting that studies have shown that 15-20 percent of people are thought to have a diagnosed or non diagnosed mental deficiency. I thought that percentage would be much lower, and I would like to learn more about that topic.

Photopea Lesson 3


I added text onto these images. I could then modify the text to make it more aesthetically pleasing. I changed the color, warped, and blended the text to make it look the best it could.

Photopea Lesson 2

For this challenge, we photo shopped something in a place where it doesn't belong, but while making it look realistic. I photo shopped a penguin into a tree.

Photopea Lesson 1


We edited a picture of flowers using the program Photopea. Different filters were used to alter the original image on the top to the altered image on the bottom.

Redesigning Websites

The most common error in the design of all these product was the color scheme. The color scheme was a problem for a lot of the websites often because the colors clashed and did not go well together. Some of the color schemes were so bad that the font could barely be read. If I was given the job of redesigning the website Blinkee.com, the Halloween site, I would change the font of the text to make it more legible to a color like red. I would also make the size of the text larger and a less ridiculous font.

Coding in the Wild: Statistics

Coding is used in statistics. I chose this topic because I find statistics interesting because they are involved in our daily lives. Computer science is used in statistics to summarize, interpret, diagnose, and assess information. Statistical scientists need to know several different languages of code. People who major in statistics in college are required to take many CS courses, where they learn several different languages of code as well as how to organize and interpret data.

Privacy on the Internet

After reading the two articles about privacy on the internet, I think it is fair that people should have privacy of messages online, but I also think that in the event of a crime or scandal, a third party should be used to decide whether or not a phone can be opened and the information revealed. Technically this is an invasion of privacy, so I like that Facebook products are protecting privacy, but I think that not allowing authorities to ever have access to messages is a little extreme, and that in extreme cases where lives are in danger, a third party should be allowed to make a decision.

Online Search

In class we were assigned to search ourselves up on the internet to see what would come up. When I searched myself up, I got basically what I expected; a bunch of pictures of lacrosse and a few of football. I expected this because lots of sports articles about our lacrosse team were written last year because we were very successful.

Life in Internet Shutdown

After reading the article, Life in Internet Shutdown, I was genuinely surprised. I had no idea that an internet shutdown would create such chaos. If an internet shutdown occurred in the USA, people would not be able to access information, money, or connect online. This would ruin the economy of the USA in days. This is why this would never happen in the United States of America. If the internet shut down today, I wouldn't be able to watch TV, do my homework, or access my phone. I do not think that governments should have the right to shut down internet access because it causes too much damage in such a short amount of time that it isn't worth it.
