Assignment #10 – Farewell CT101

Let me just state that, CT101 was one of my favorite courses this Fall 2020 semester and overall at York College. I learned a lot from this course in terms of creating and customizing a website. It was harder than what I expected but I loved learning how to do it. Reflecting on what I learned and assessing what I have done I believe I deserve an A+ because I always did my assignments on time, I worked on my assignments and my website all the time and always put the most thought into them, not because I required but because I enjoy it.

I successfully created a decent first website that is still in progress to me but it still customized enough to be visited and viewed. My only frustration is I just want it to be perfect already.

What I enjoy the most about this class is the blogging and customizing my own website. I allow me to try and learn new skills that I can use when I try to do this on my own for my career. I do plan on maintaining and keeping up my new website so I can continue to learn. I will try to blog more and interact more with visitors/viewers, and creating video content, and becoming more active on my social medias to generate more traffic to my site.

My website is: https://manilogue.net/

If you want to learn how to navigate my site, I have a post on the CT101 website which includes screenshots that are hyperlinked to each page with descriptions:

 https://ct101.commons.gc.cuny.edu/assignment-9-navigating-to-my-site/

After 11 posts (this is the 11th Post) on the CT101 site, and 7 posts on my website; I am ready for more  and new adventures where I can expand my knowledge and have more fun.

This has kind of been a tough semester and SPRING 2021 will be my last, soon it will be FAREWELL YORK COLLEGE. I STILL HATE COVID-19 because I will not be able to celebrate it the way I would like.  So again thank you, but NEXTTTTTT !

Assignment #7: Mid-Semester Assessment

REFLECTION TIME!

Self assessment is important, it helps us become aware and take action from that perspective and energy.

Before I started this semester or even this course I was determined to start working on building a website where I can blog and store episodes/recordings to my podcast I also wanted to start at the same time. My plan is to learn as much as I can during my last year at York College and find an internship that can provide me with even more skills and tips. I was going to work on and manage my podcast and website on my spare time, if I wasn’t at work or school until I generated enough followers where I can get paid to do what I love doing.

Although most days I feel like this!

I understand and believe this most…


The grade I feel I have earned thus far is A+, not just for the work I’ve done but for my enjoyment of the course. I am a creator.

For those wondering or interested my podcast and blog post will be discussing what needs to be discussed: unpopular opinions, untold truths, controversial & trending topics with nothing off limits. It will be an honest forum of opinions and facts, but I would also like to interact with things such as live chats, advice, debates, rants and Q&As if possible.
sb: … it’s NOT Just for the GIRLS
It’s still a work in progress but it is coming along I suppose here @ manilogue.net

Assignment #6 – The Process

Today we were instructed to FINALLLY register our domain names. For mine ?

The WINNER is manilogue.net (only because they did not have the option for .us) but  I love this one ALMOST enough as my top pick.

Using Reclaim Hosting was easy to use and to sign up for its just like using the CT 101 website but with way more access.

I liked that it was easier than I expected and I hope it continues to be easy. Also liked that ITS FREE, I mean who doesn’t like free? for a whole year I have a whole site (which I was going to pay to do anyways) for free, so from me its a great opportunity for me to learn how to maintain my own site because this is something I am really interested in for my podcast.

IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN MY OTHER POST with MY LOGO, HERE IT GOES AGAIN!! because I love it

 

Assignment #5 – Part I : Domain Name

Part I – Picking a Domain Name

This week we were instructed to think of potential domain names for our website but before this assignment I was already thinking. The potential domain names I am considering includes:

Top Pick: manilogue.us

Runner Up: manilogue.net

Last Option: manilogue.com

JUST anything with in the MANILOGUE in it, to be quite honest .

MANILOGUE is the name I chosen to use for my podcast I want to create. It’s a combination of the word “monologue” and my nickname “Mani”.

My website will be for about my podcast and the content of and/or related to my podcast.  I am an aspiring radio personality, tv personality (not sure if I would want to act as of yet) but also screenwriter and television producer. Yes, I know that is a lot, but I have faith.

For those wondering or interested my podcast and blog post will be discussing what needs to be discussed: unpopular opinions, untold truths, controversial & trending topics with nothing off limits. It will be an honest forum of opinions and facts, but I would also like to interact with things such as live chats, advice, debates, rants and Q&As if possible.

sb: … it’s NOT Just for the GIRLS

My career idols are Issa Rae (bottom right), Angela Yee (top left), Mara Brock Akil (bottom left) and Yvonne Orji (top right).

What are my initial thoughts going into this? I am EXCITED I was going to do all of this by myself, but I did need some help and guidance, so I am happy I am learning more about things I am interested in while still in school. Not only am I getting help from CT101 but from YC Radio also.

My only concern is that sometime during high school I stopped being active on social media I only post occasionally but in order for this all to work I would have to start being active on social media platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter again to help generate traffic to not only my social media accounts but my website and podcast.

We are going to use a company called Reclaim Hosting, with which the school has a contract with so we start our account/website for free.

I never heard of this site, but I am super excited to learn how to use and work with it. I often hear about godaddy.com, wix.com, wordpress.com etc.

 

Assignment #5 – Part II: The Internet Boy

Part II – Reflection of The Internet’s Own Boy

While watching The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz there was a moment in the documentary where Aaron Swartz talks, and he says

“I feel very strongly that it’s not enough to just live in the world as it is, to just kind of take what you’re given, and you know, follow the things that adults told you to do, and that your parents told you to do, and that society tells you to do. I think you should always be questioning.

I take this very scientific attitude, that everything you’ve learned is just provisional, that it’s always open to recantation or refutation or questioning, and I think the same applies to society.”

I find this significant because when he speaks there is an extreme amount of seriousness in his tone and facial expression. So anything he says he strongly believes which would make him defend, prove and fight for anything he says or do. Even when they showed him as a child you could see he was different was more serious than most kids. So as an activist and/or programmer he seems like he would never shy away from a challenge.

Aaron’s attitude expressed in a meme… but lastly R.I.P Aaron Swartz 1986 – 2013

Assignment 4 – DS106 Project “Stealing”

As instructed, I stole two projects from the DS 106 assignment repository.

Project#1

I chose Project 1 -Short Movie with Only Sounds because I find cutting out the original audio and replacing it with sound effects, makes the video much more funnier. To do this I think I would need to learn video editing and audio.

Example of this assignment that I found to be HILARIOUS!!!

Where my Mortal Kombat fans at!? 🤔 haha so hilarious 🤣 specially them sound effects! Feel free to follow my profile for…

Project #2

I chose Project 2- Real Life Brady Bunch Family because that is a challenge within it’s own, I grew up in a big enough family to fill the squares. People be really surprised to find out that my mom has 6 daughters (including me). I don’t have much access to my sisters’ personal/individual selfies or photos but I am pretty sure I can find some if I really snoop (which is the challenge) we don’t have each other on social media and I don’t really take much pictures of them & vice versa. I think I would be able to recreate this image better if I knew how to use photoshop which is needed for this project.

This is my attempt on the Real Life Brady Bunch without photoshop

*please see photo above*

I think a project/post should be assigned once a week since our class only takes place once a week. Learning how to do these types of tools and skills in our 2 hour long classes and having recorded tutorials so far has been very helpful without being overloaded with information. These skills are important to me because I am a marketing major and young adult in the digital era.  ALSO it is completely helpful to be tech savvy.

Assignment #3 – Meme Art

For starters, let me just state for the record that I LOVE MEMES. I believe MEMEs are ART.

 meme

MEMEs can hurt and help at the same time. Some may feel certain MEMEs are inappropriate and bad but OVERALL MEMEs are a GOOD.

 meme

MEMEs are excellent for communicating and self-expression. Many people are misunderstood through text because there are no visual signs like body language or facial expression being seen nor is tone being heard like in voice when you are over the phone.

 meme

MEMEs are a way to communicate, for self expression, for entertainment and marketing purposes. (Probably used for many other reasons who knows)

r/me_irl - Me irl

Personally I use MEMEs along with GIFs to communicate better sometimes. Or even express myself for time to time if they are relatable.

 meme

Here the some sites to create memes:

Imgur

ImgFlip

QuickMeme

Me coming back to get the face mask I forgot before leaving - iFunny :)

Assignment #2 – Reaction GIFs

The feeling I had getting out my bed to find my laptop for classes because school officially started AGAIN

Family Time Reaction GIF by Lifetime

On the first day of CT101, it was also my first full day of classes. I wasn’t thinking much of the class. I was just TIREDDDDDDD but I still had to get ready in case I actually had to participate.

mornings GIF

Yeah, it wasn’t that early of a class but it was too early to be on a video call to introduce yourself pretending to feel friendly when in reality wanted to not talk at all but still 1..2..3.. ACTION!

good morning monday GIF

After listening to what the course was about and the creative content. I felt like it was a class that didn’t make me feel like it was a graded class where i have to overwork myself. Like God actually listened when I said “I needed a break!” I was SHOCKED in a good way.

Oh My God Omg GIF

CT 101 may be my easiest and most creative class. The best class this semester. In this class I can learn things and enjoy learning instead of learning without loads of coursework and the class being too serious.

Exactly what I need in my last year here at York College.

Assignment #1 – Internet Happy

it’s the MEMES for me, literally no matter what my mood is MEMES NEVER FAILS ME…

MEMES always make me smile, laugh or both, they are usually super relatable and super easy to catch the joke. The pictures are ALWAYS spot on and can always be changed and still be funny. Any topic you can think of there is a MEME for it… I think to myself a lot “Do we all live the same life?”

& since this is a college post I am sure everyone can to relate to one, if not all of them.

Here is a site where you can create your own meme.
