For this assignment I had to make a five second film. I decided to make it funny and use my dog Dakota again. I dressed her up in my clothes like she was trying to be me and then made the sign to go along with it. She kept knocking the glasses off of her face but I eventually got the shot. She was a good sport while I was trying to dress her up.

For this assignment we had to copy a photo and change something about one of them and let people guess what the difference is. To make this photo I used the program paint. This is a picture of Lena Meyers radio studio, I chose this place for my picture because Scott and Lena became good friends after they did the radio show together. Often times Lena has to travel around to interview different people so she reaches out to Scott about the better hotels to stay at and he can sometimes give her discounts and in return she gives him publicity on her radio show. They usually meet at Lena’s radio studio to talk about hotel business and that is why I chose to use her studio as my picture.

For this assignment I had to find an object and then make different versions of the same object. I chose two pennies and drew different things around them to make them look like different things. I made the pennies into eyes, car tires, flowers, and basketballs. This relates to my character Scott because there is always change laying around the hotel desk and when business is slow he sometimes doodles around the change and makes pictures like these. This is how he entertains himself during a slow day.

For this assignment we had to make a collage that tells a story. To make this collage I used the app “PhotoFrame,” to combine all four photos. This collage tells the story of a typical day in the life of Scott Brinkmann. He starts his day off by arriving at his hotel about 30 minutes before it opens. He then checks the guest book to see who will be checking in and out during that day. About half way through the day he heads down the street to his favorite deli where he gets a sandwich almost every day. For the remainder of the day he checks guests in and out and helps them with whatever they might need.

This is a picture of the Rappahannock River in Fredericksburg. I have visited the river many times and it is one of my favorite spots to sit outside. I have always wondered about the history behind it though, so my question is, what is the historical significance of the Rappahannock River?

My perfect day would include having breakfast at Tropical Smoothie, going on a hike with my family and dog, having lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, helping out at an animal shelter, riding a horse, watching a movie with my boyfriend, and having dinner at Bonefish.
I would start my day off by eating breakfast at tropical smoothie. I always get a bagel with cream cheese and a peaches n’ silk smoothie which has peaches, strawberries, and bananas in it.
I would then go on a hike to Bears Den on the Appalachian trail with my family and dog. After hiking for awhile you reach an overlook and can see everything as far as the horizon, this is my favorite part of the hike and it is so beautiful.
For lunch I would go to Buffalo Wild Wings and get the honey barbeque wings with mozzarella sticks.
Next I would want to go volunteer at the Orange County Humane Society, animals are a huge passion of mine, so helping animals in need always makes me very happy and would definitely be included in my perfect day. I help out with adoptions and giving the animals exercise along with anything else they might need.
Then I would want to go horseback riding. I have ridden horses for many years and it is one of my favorite activates. It always puts me in a good mood.
Next I would want to watch a movie with my boyfriend. We always watch comedies together so we would probably watch one of the newer comedies that recently came out on demand.
Finally I would go to Bonefish Grill for dinner and get the bang bang shrimp, this is my favorite dish that they have.
These are the objects you would find in my character’s bag on a regular basis.
This is Scott’s guest book for his hotel, he always likes to know who is in his hotel and what rooms are occupied, so the guest book helps him keep track of this.
Scott carries Ibuprofen with him because he often gets headaches from the stress of running his hotel business. He spends long hours organizing and planning for his guests and this causes him to become stressed out.
You can bet that there will always be a Coke in Scott’s bag, given that this is his favorite drink he always has one on hand.
These are Scott’s keys, he must keep them with him at all times because they lock and unlock all of the entrances to his hotel, they also have a master key that opens every room door, and of course they have the keys to his own house.
Scott keeps this planner in his bag so he always knows what he has scheduled for the day. He is a very organized man and does not like to be late or miss events, therefore he never leaves his planner behind.
Scott always keeps cash on him incase a customer needs change and for his lunch that he buys everyday at the deli down the street.
Finally, Scott always carries his aviator sunglasses with him for style and for utility.
