Your very own Spubble – Learn to love yourself, grab a picture of yourself in which your body language, actions, gestures, etc. suggest one thing and then play off that using a speech bubble.

I wanted to use this picture because I knew the only recent pictures of me that weren’t selfies would be of me on my Psych in Europe trip. Personally, I found this pretty easy to create but the whole making it funny part threw me for a loop. This is because, to me, this is hilarious for it was exactly what I was thinking when my group handed me the map and asked me to translate the directions. This is extra hilarious to anyone that actually knows me and that I am terrible at two things: technology and directions. Luckily we got to where we were going! This is great storytelling wise because there is even a story in of itself along with people wondering, “Did they make it?” “Where were they going?” “Is this their first day?” “Is Ciera really that bad with directions?”

Here I just used an editing app, stretched a thought bubble up over my head, and added text into it.
