Google Docs and Spreadsheets

Appalachian Trail Essay
This was a research essay for my Writer's Workshop class. I was focusing on correct grammar and accurate facts as well as reader's appeal.

Microsoft Word


This Word document is a information insert/flyer that explains the qualifications of an In-House Training Applicant. For this I used proximity, complementing colors, and bulleted lists.


This Word document is a flyer for a new catering company. To make this eye catching, I used complementing fonts and font sizes, proximity, and emphasis by bolding word phrases.


2 Spreadsheet Artifacts

Microsoft Excel


This Excel 2007 document is an inventory list for a pet store. It consists of a table of products and each one's number, price, and value, and a bar graph of the product and the number that the store has. I used the built in table formatting and after I made the graph I added some of my own graphic design touches such as the glowing word and numbers and the beveled border.

Google Docs and Spreadsheets

Glover's Reef: Spring Break Travel
I created this budget spreadsheet of my imaginary spring break trip in Google Docs and Spreadsheets and then later transferred it to Microsoft Excel. There is also a graph for the hours that I was to spend at each activity. For this I used complimentary color scheme, proximity, and bolding.


Presentation Software Artifact



This is my favorite presentation because it is about yours truly!!! I created this presentation using Microsoft Power Point 2007. My slides were pre-formated with adjusted fonts and the font sizes, and an adjusted color scheme. I used concise lists, a toondoo, clip art, graphics, pictures, graphic formatting such as shadows, beveled edges, and 3D effects, and video clip art.



Blog Postings

Man On the Lunar Surface!

I did this blog on Neil Armstrong. I had done a research project on him for a class and I thought that he was so cool that I just had to blog about his amazing life.

The Right Stuff

This is the first entry where I was required to interview someone. The topic was on intuitive and experiencial learning versus classroom memorization.

(P.S. I did not interview my father because I thought he would be bias to my opinions on the matter. Actually, I was surprised that many of his views were similar to mine, on this topic.)

A Page for Representative Royal

I did this blog after my trip to Atlanta to be a page for Representative Royal in the House of Representatives. This was such a great and crazy experience, mainly because I worked on the last day of voting for Georgia's 2007 Budget.

Small Town Dancer

I wrote this blog when I was in the 8th grade, but it is about something that is very important in my life. The blog also goes along with quite a few things that I have learned in Computer Fundamentals (long term goals/planning) as a freshman.

Books, Books, Books!

This was a free blog (meaning that I wasn't assigned a topic). I blogged about books and reading because it is a big part of my life and I believe it should be a big part of everyone's life.

Planning for the Future



Jobs

Recreational Therapist
I am interested in being a recreational therapist of some sort because it is a job where I can take advantage of my natural talents (leadership, empathy and understanding, and being an all around people person) and do what I enjoy most ( being helpful in any way and doing recreational activities like sports and exercise).
Rehabilitation Therapist
I am very interested in this type of therapy because of the unique patient oppurtunities. With the type of education that I would need for this job, I would like to focus on brain and spinal injuries.
Developmental Editor
I would like to be a collaborative editor of some kind because I would be able to see up and coming literature, and use my grammar and leadership skills.
