Assignment #2

What did you think on the first day of the CT101?

I have to say I wasn’t too excited on the first day, I thought well I’ll be blogging once a week (which I obviously haven’t) but the sound of using memes and gifs did intrigue me a little. I really liked the first *online impression* of professor Seslow and looked forward to learning some more about what we’d be doing.

Did you like hearing about the course and its creative content? How did it make you feel?

Yea I did like hearing about the content and what specific things we were to do but I didn’t feel anything special just an obligated ok like, alright I’m gonna have to do it and it sounds fine.

How does CT101 compare to some of your other classes?

It is somewhat similar to my literature class where I can have an opinionated response and write about my own thoughts. But it’s also different from all my classes because I solely use a laptop to do everything.

What are the potentials of this class?

Since most people write personal blogs I feel like it has the potential to connect individuals by communicating digitally, something that hasn’t been around for long and is being used by more people each day. Same interests do spark new connections.

How do you feel about learning new skills that use Internet tools?

HAHA it makes me feel very intelligent and up to date. “YES I CAN ACTUALLY MAKE MY OWN GIPHS!” Might not be a big deal but not everyone can do it so it’s definitely a cool thing and I’m interested to learn more.

Assignment #1

Things that make me happy on the internet 🙂

I am an AVID horror and gore fan. Anything scary makes me happy, that might sound odd but the adrenaline rush that has my on the edge of my seat is addicting! Haha of course I would be terrified if any of the stuff I watch or read was to happen in real life but I love that I can find something on the internet that makes me have a heart attack at three on a random Monday morning.

Another thing that makes me extremely happy is cooking shows! I started cooking when I was six and I immediately fell in love given how much I adore food. Now wouldn’t it be interesting if there was a show that included both horror and cooking? And I’m not talking about those “spooky” cooking or baking shows but one that genuinely makes your skin crawl!

I sound like a total psychopath :/
