Angelina Jolie has always been one of my favorite’s actresses. Back to when I first saw her in the movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, to when I first saw the movie “Wanted”. I appreciated that she always plays the lead character or “Femme Fatal” in most of the movies she is in. Her role in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and “Wanted” really inspired me to be anything I want to be. I’ll admit after I first saw the two movies, I truly believed that I could be a secret agent and be part of a society of assassins at the same time. But as the story goes, I grew up. Although I no longer perceive being an assassin as a career path, I am still inspired by Angelina on and off the screen. In the real world, she isn’t killing the bad guys but saving the good guys. Mrs. Jolie has done countless charity work and founded several foundations to help children and their families. I could go and on about Mrs. Jolie but I don’t want to make this post too long.
On a very important note, I had a difficult time trying to upload the GIF to this website even though the GIF was in the right format. Every time I tried to uploaded my GIF, it only had the first image and the GIF wasn’t animated at all. So if you are having the same problem, I want to help. First, I learned how to create the animation in Photoshop by watching this YouTube video. Ironically, the tutorial was posted by Adobe Creative Cloud. Here is my summary of the video.

Again, here is a summary of what I got from the WordPress Site.
I found a really cool project for my first DS106 assignment.
You are to pick a random word and create a design that essentially describes the word. For my design, I use the word “DEBATE” and show that there is always two sides in a debate and a neutral side who is in the middle, judging everything both sides have to say. I also decreased the opacity of the neutral side “BA” from black to a lighter black color. I got inspired to use the word after searching random words on google search. I wanted to make the “DE” blue to symbolize the democratic party while “TE” would be red to symbolize the republican party. I didn’t do it due to the challenge rules, you have to use black and only one font but you can play around with the positions of the word. It was pretty fun and a little bit challenging to do since you couldn’t use colors. Some of the submissions I saw from other students also inspired me to try the challenge. Here is one I think is just brilliant and very creative.
