It's the end of the semester. Again. It just keeps happening this way, in that funny little way that time works. And since it's the end of the semester, it can only mean one thing. FINALS!
Finals are upon us, and in some cases, behind us. The final assignment for this Digital Foundations class was to, wait for it, document things digitally!
Oodles upon oodles of fun. Of course it is.
Luckily enough for me, I actually had a little bit of prior knowledge from working with InDesign in the past. Granted, it had been in the past, and I had forgotten most things. As a big fan of trial and error myself, I set off on a grand adventure to figure out the inner workings of this program.
After about five hours and two scratched files later I finally got the hang of it all.
First step in making this book: gather all past assignments.
Now this is harder than it looks. To begin with, you have to remember what all you managed to do in the first place. And that is a chore in and of itself. After that, you actually have to find them. Thank god we had to keep a blog.
After all those steps of one, it was just a simple matter of adding in text here, deleting everything there, crying in the corner for a bit, eating an entire box of donuts, and then BAM here we are. Like magic.
Or technology as some people call it. But we all know what it really is.

Here are some of the pages from my book:
