Final Blog Post

I can’t believe we are at the end of the semester, it is definitely a bittersweet moment… as this is my last semester!! And I can’t believe a finally made it to the finish line and that I actually created my own website and added content. I’ve always wanted to have my own site/blog

It really wasn’t as hard as I thought, just took some time and patience.

Some things were a little tedious but nothing a couple videos, emails and do-overs couldn’t fix. I had a hard time at first removing the default pictures in each section, third time was a charm. I learned a lot despite my procrastinations….I learned to create a site, add my own content including giphy and build my confidence in possibly venturing into the blogging world.

The easiest part was choosing the domain name: My site was designed to inspire and educate about Breast Cancer utilizing my story to empower and educate others that they’re journey is possible. Honestly, I think I deserve  a B because I did my best as a newbie but could’ve done better…..but life and procrastination got in the way most days.

I almost forgot I created a vaporwave image, I learned how to include my social media info on my page. I used an old pic that reminded me of my strength and victory on my cancer journey…

My plans now that I will have more free time is to continue to update and post on my new site:

Happy Holidays Everyone! Continued love, peace and joy through the New Year!


Vaporwave, kind of reminds me of this club I went to called Webster Hall. It had several floors with each playing different genres of music, it was just the wave, lol. Music floating through the air and people souls as the lights flicked different colors and everyone happy. I think it’s cool, keeps me interested all while introducing me to something new. I would rather jump in as an artist and make some vapor wave. Seems a little tricky adding different music. Happy Holidays! Hope the New Year brings continuous Peace, Joy and Blessings!

Mid-semester Assignment

Honestly, it has been an extremely difficult semester and the class I thought would be the least now my most stressed about class. Juggling remote learning (me & 5 year old), work, family in a pandemic has really taken a toll on me. I said all that to say, I have not been able to get much done to my website. Maybe I am thinking too hard about the website and posts for this class. But I guess, since we have such an awesome professor, I have been trying to catch up on my more difficult classes. Which I see now, was not a good strategy. My hope is to tackle the site ( head on this week, Nike said it best “Just Do It!”

Domain Name Time!

The time has finally arrived! When I read reviews it did mention creation of your own site. And I must admit I have been patiently waiting for… light at the end of the tunnel 🙂

It’s all beginning to make sense, the assignments thus far has been preparing us to create a fun and interactive site. When I think about my domain name, the first thing comes to mind is RosepinC. It is a name that is very symbolic for me. I am a Breast cancer survivor and this name signifies my strength.

I overcame and rose beyond that was meant or could’ve killed me. The “pinc” stands for the type of cancer I have as most cancers are represented by colors, and I use the letter c instead of k for cancer. 

Assignment #1 Internet Happiness

Hello everyone,

During this pandemic, I had to find a way to not focus on all the stressful and negative things occurring. I utilized the internet to help me escape from reality and laugh more often. It has been a joy to see people from different music eras and genres come together to make us laugh and give us entertainment through music and dance. I really enjoyed watching the music shows brought to us by Verzuz tv, which are sort of like a live concert of their greatest moments/hits throughout their career. My family and I made it a date night with food, drinks and a lot of happy souls and feet. It gave us a reason to smile and celebrate life more despite the adversaries we may be facing. It also was a walk down memory lane and helped us create new memories for my son. Here are a few:
