Groove-o-Meter

To discover just how disco-groovy my week is, I decided to measure how often music is a part of my day-to-day life, and as it turns out, I was boppin’ a whole lot. Eighty-four percent of my week’s hours were spent grooving, which in a way makes sense, for I often use tunes to give myself that motivation to get stuff done.

I decided not to include my morning alarms as music, despite it consisting of a song, since I usually shut it off real quickly anyways. Also, I forgot to record my Wednesday, so I substituted a second Sunday to fill in that final seventh spot. How groovy is my Wednesday? We’ll never know.

Creating the graphic took a rather long time, and in hindsight, I probably should have just drawn it on a sheet of paper. I had to stack multiple images in order to show the full infographic because downloading it was locked behind a subscription fee for infogram.com. Although if you’d like to see the full infographic as one complete image, you can click here.

All in all, I think the Groove-o-Meter does a good job measuring my daily groove, and I am excited to listen to some more bops as soon as I’m done uploading this in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Flower Pick

For this Sunday Sketch, it took me a while to decided what item in my dorm I would use for the sketch. I took a break from looking around the room and played guitar for a bit and then it hit me: I should use my guitar pick as the basis of the drawing. I looked hard at the pick and tried to think of something to make it a part of. I contemplated making it a part of the body of a guitar but I thought that it would be too close to what it actually represents. My next thought went towards something nature related and a flower was the first thing that came to mind. Considering the shape of the pick, I thought that making the pick a petal would be a cool idea so I worked with it.

Trying to decide between so many different objects was interesting because although I had many different choices to work with, none of them seemed to bring forth any ideas. After taking my mind away from the assignment for a few minutes gave me the perfect idea.
