Wow we’ve finally come to an end. First I just want to thank you Professor Seslow this class was definitely not what I expected but in a good way. I think this is by far one of the most creative classes that I’ve ever taken. I feel like this class has definitely pushed my creativity like I’ve always used memes literally all the time on twitter but I never thought I would or even consider using it to tell stories. Your class was the break from hell that I needed from my other classes feel as if I deserve at least a minimum of a C+ in your class only because I was late with some assignments and I feel as if some of my posts wasn’t as creative as my classmates but I did try though. I enjoyed making my site the most I was been supposed to make one for my food business and you made the process easier and allowed me to experiment and play around with my site on my own time so I definitely will be keeping my site and I can’t wait to see the growth in it once I develop it more over time. I enjoyed the entire process of building my site no complaints and I can’t wait to show you guys the growth of it. This is the link to my website : http://breesbrunch.com/ and I definitely will be posting more recipes , vegan transition advice, and updates on vegan events so if you’re interested in that definitely keep updated with my site. I’m excited to show you guys what I have in store. Thanks for an amazing semester Professor.

ASSIGNMENT #13: WHAT IS COPYRIGHT?
Copyright is the legal right given to an originator to print , publish , perform, film , or record literary , artistic , or musical material and to authorize users to do the same .Users of the web should only feel as if their work is being stolen if it’s the same exact thing just being displayed for example like a major event or paper for an assignment as theirs with no credit given. Otherwise using the example as remakes to convey an important message or a funny meme shouldn’t be considered copyrighted. Fair use is the condition of things that can be considered something that isn’t copyrighted or stolen from the originator this can be something that’s used for criticism , teaching ,news reporting , research , experiment , and more. I choose assignment #1 from Larry Lessig’s ted talk and the quote that stood out to me the most was “every single use of culture produces a copy”. I completely agree because over the years we have seen so many different adaptions from different countries and cultures that have sometimes even been better than the original from the best and I personally feel as if long as the creativity is there or it’s to provide some sort of entertainment or knowledge and not credited as your own that it shouldn’t be copyrighted because it’s a freedom of speech.
ASSIGNMENT #11 AND ASSIGNMENT #12 BLOG POST LINK :
ASSIGNMENT #10 : REVIEWING CLASSMATES SITES
THE CLASSMATES SITE THAT I CHOOSE TO REVIEW IS TYLER DAZEY AND THIS IS THE LINK TO HER SITE : https://thedreamlair.org/. I LOVE THE CONCEPT OF THIS SITE SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE I’M INTO ASTROLOGY AND POSITIVITY A LOT. I’M A VERY SPIRITUAL PERSON SO READING THINGS THAT HELP ME FEEL ENCOURAGED AND MOTIVATED TO DO MORE REALLY RAISES MY FREQUENCY I’M INTERESTED IN SEEING WHERE SHE TAKE THINGS WITH THIS SITE .
ASSIGNMENT #9 : EXPLORING THE WORDPRESS POTENTIALS PART 2
HEY GUYS THIS MY SECOND BLOG POST HERE’S THE LINK TO IT I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY THIS RECIPE : http://breesbrunch.com/uncategorized/french-toast-for-the-most/
ASSIGNMENT # 8 : WORDPRESS CUSTOMIZING SERIES PART 1 FIRST BLOG POST
HEY FOODIES , IT’S YOUR GIRL BREE. THIS SITE WILL BE YOUR GUIDE TO TRANSITION INTO VEGANSIM, VEGAN RECIPES , & INFORMATION ON VEGAN ALTERNATIVES. FOR MY FIRST POST I THOUGHT I’D GIVE YOU GUYS A LITTLE INTRO INTO WHAT MADE ME TRANSITION INTO VEGANSIM. I FOUND OUT ABOUT VEGANSIM BACK IN 2017 WHEN I FIRST FOUND OUT ABOUT DR. SEBI . DR SEBI IS A HERBALIST THAT HAS CURED HUNDREDS OF PATIENTS USING HERBS AND BY GUIDING THEM TO CHANGE THEIR DIETS TO A VEGAN DIET. WHAT REALLY INTRIGUED ME THE MOST ABOUT HIS DIET IS THAT HE HELPED CURED PEOPLE THAT HAD INCURABLE DISEASES USING HIS DIET. I WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSED HE WAS ALSO ONE OF THE VERY FEW PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO EVER WIN A CASE AGAINST THE SUPREME COURT.EVEN THOUGH I FOUND OUT ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IN 2017 I WOULD SAY THAT PERSONALLY I DIDN’T CARE TO START TAKING THIS INFORMATION SERIOUSLY UNTIL 2020. COVID HIT AND I STARTED REALIZING HOW MUCH PEOPLE WERE DYING BY HAVING A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM AND THE CAUSE OF DISEASES WERE WHAT WE WERE EATING. I ALSO STARTED WORKING AT A HEALTH FOOD STORE IN 2020 AND THAT HELPED ME ON MY JOURNEY A LOT BECAUSE IT MADE ME REALIZE THE POWER OF HERBS AND A VEGAN DIET. IT FELT GOOD KNOWING THAT I HELPED PEOPLE GET RID OF COVID, HEALTH PROBLEMS , & MORE. WHAT MADE ME GET INTO COOKING NOW IS ALSO THE FACT THAT MY CUSTOMERS WOULD ENJOY MY FOOD AND COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT IT WAS VEGAN AND THAT’S WHAT MADE ME FEEL GOOD THE MOST. SHOWING PEOPLE THAT I CAN NOT ONLY MAKE SURE THEY’RE EATING HEALTHY AND ALSO MAKING SURE THAT IT TASTES GOOD TRULY MAKES ME HAPPY AND THAT’S WHERE MY JOURNEY STARTED. FAST FORWARD HERE WE ARE NOW WHERE I SERVE AND CATER VEGAN FOOD , GIVE VEGAN RECIPES , AND HELP PEOPLE IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH AND I TRULY CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE THIS JOURNEY WITH YOU GUYS
ASSIGNMENT #7 : THE WORDPRESS CUSTOMIZING SERIES PART 1
ASSIGNMENT #6 : MID SEMESTER REFLECTION
I feel live overall in CT101 I’m doing okay. I feel as if I’m not as creative or as motivated this semester as everyone else is with their posts and that’s simply because a lot happened for me this semester mentally including a family death. I haven’t been as consistent with my posts but I know for sure the semester isn’t going to end and I don’t complete all 14 assignments required for this class. I hope that I’m able to at least pass the class with a C+. What I learned the most from this class is that doing an assignment doesn’t always have to be so strict and by the book to receive good results what I love personally about this class is that it allows me to write my posts to my freedom and my creativity. It’s like a little freedom compared to my other classes. The skills I’ve developed in this class is pushing my creativity and coming out of my comfort zone with trying things and doing things that I usually wouldn’t even think of doing especially with memes. My goal for the next few weeks is to try to push my creativity with my posts in this class.
ASSIGNMENT #5 : PICKING A DOMAIN NAME
MY DOMAIN NAME IS : breesbrunch.com and on this site I will be giving advice to new vegans on how to transition into veganism , recipes, selling food items , and more. I actually have a vegan food catering business called “BREE’S BRUNCH” and I wanted to create a site soon anyways so this just saved me the time. I’m excited to educate you guys on everything vegan and show you guys that eating healthy and harm free can be good if you season it right of course and follow instructions.
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE VEGAN SITES :
ASSIGNMENT #4 : DIGITAL STORYTELLING PROJECT FLEXIBILITY
THESE ARE THE TWO ASSIGNMENTS I CHOOSE :
THIS IS THE RESULTS OF ONE OF THEM:
In this video I combined sounds I don’t like which is chalk screeching, fire truck and/or cops sounds, people chewing loudly , and squeaky noises. The reason why I choose this assignment to do as annoying as it was to hear these sounds is because regardless if I like it or not the reality of the world we live in reminds us that we’re going to have to deal with people we don’t like , things we don’t like , and sounds we don’t like especially to get a job done so I thought I’d push myself to do something out of my comfort zone since that’s things I will have to get used to doing regardless. I think we should do at least 3 of these assignments a semester to push us out of comfort zones and to evolve as a creator. I feel like these assignments will not only provide academic growth but mental and emotional growth as well in the sense of bringing up your confidence to try new things and test your capability with things out of your comfort zone as well.
ASSIGNMENT #3 : ARE MEMES ART?
Well first of all saying memes is not art is like saying this class isn’t art and I truly believe that any class and/or anything in general that tests your creativity is a form of art. So anybody that thinks otherwise can fight about it
Nah I’m just joking. No fighting. No violence. I kid.
Based on an article that I got from https://www.clozette.co/article/memes-art-form-7315 , it states that memes are a form of self expression that “a scene from an obscure film and slap on a wholly different and unrelated topic onto it and still make it enjoyable for many makes memes a language of its own. More than inciting laughter, it also becomes an interesting way for us all to express our sentiments.” Which I agree with because 8 times out of 10 what’s written on the meme has absolutely nothing to do with the actual scene but the facial expressions and/or reactions make the experience so much funnier. Memes are super relatable and allow people to put their creativity to the test and that’s exactly why memes are a form of art.
ASSIGNMENT #2 – MY FIRST REACTION TO CT 101
Hey Y’all I’m Breanna but y’all can call me Bree because I just prefer to be called that . I’m a Psychology major and I took this class because I needed an elective for my major. I’m not going to lie at first I thought this was going to be a speech type of class and as much as I love talking and stuff I’m not really a fan of presenting because I always get nervous whether it’s virtual or in person so at first my reaction was like…
But once Professor Seslow explained the class and what’s expected I’m like… Wait this is amazing. No tests, speeches , papers. Just vibes and creativity . I love to see it
I’m so interested in learning more about digital storytelling and I’m glad that this is a freewill laid back class that pushes my creativity and also allows me to use one of the things I love very much which is memes. As a big Tumblr and Twitter feen this is definitely fulfilling and combining two of my favorite things. Thanks Professor Seslow. You did that
ASSIGNMENT #1 – INTERNET HAPPINESS
My internet happiness is google. Hello as a college student google has been blessing me the past four years of my college career.
My internet happiness is also Twitter. Twitter can make me laugh, cry , and learn more than I’ve ever learned in school sometimes.
