Mid – Semester Post



How am I doing in CT101? 

CT 101 has been very interesting for me. I actually believe that I am doing well in CT 101, I really enjoy this class quite a lot and I am learning so many new things in class. I assumed this class would be tough, however after attending a few lectures, I started having fun with the contents of this class. I look forward to working on the website. I am looking forward to getting an A in this class since this is one of the classes I have really enjoy attending. I also have tried to complete the assignments with enthusiasm even if a bit late at times! :p

What have I learned? What skills have I developed, cultivated and displayed regularly? 

The materials and assignments of this class are very engaging. I learnt about blog posting from this class. I also learnt how to brainstorm different ideas and make those changes in my blog posts. The most exciting part was creating new ideas and names for the domain that I am about to use. I also have learnt the use of memes/ gifs to convey the thoughts I have in my blog posts. I believe this class has helped me learn so many new and amazing things. I hope to learn more in the future as well.

How does this contribute to my weekly progress? How do I assess my performance through self-reflection in this class?

My weekly progress will be on how much content I am reading and learning from this class. I have missed 1/2 assignments but managed to post them later. I think one of the helpful things in this class is to have this flexibility to work on assignments later as well. 

What do I know now that I did not know before taking this class?

I have been using gifs and memes in social media. However, the creative nature of this class allowed me to create my own gifs and memes for my blog posts. I also did not know a lot about creating websites, therefore it will be a fun journey to learn that through this class. 

Do I see my weekly blogging work expanding creatively? If so, please explain –  or am I stuck in a loop where my posts seem to look the same most of the time, how will I change that?

I obviously see my weekly blogging getting more creative day by day. I feel fortunate that I am being given the chance to create contents for this class which I thoroughly enjoy. Even though my blog posts tend to look a bit alike, I try my best to change it every week. I feel the best way to do that is to think about the blog posts for a while. I am looking forward to the next assignments and finishing this semester strong!


Website ideas

The idea of having my own website surely is very exciting. I would like my website to be reflective of who I am as a person and my interests. Some of my interests are:

Traveling: I like to travel a lot and I believe that traveling allows to broaden one’s mindset on so many things!

Coding: Since I am majoring in Computer Science, I also have to code a lot. I would love to add my personal projects to my website.

Exploring New York: I also love to explore different areas of New York! Therefore it is one of my wishes to have a website where I can publish my most favorite places of New York.

Therefore, Keeping in mind my interest list, the list of website names that I would like to use are:

1. nafisatabassum

2. nafisacodes

3. blogsbynafisa

4. NYexplorewithNafisa

5. travelwithnafisa

Are Memes considered art?

For me, Memes has always been a great way to cheer myself up. I send memes to my friends as well and that definitely is a great way for me to laugh and relax. I believe that Memes gives us the option to be cheerful and happy amongst the tough times.

Obviously CT  has been one of my favorite class because of the creative content creation, so here are my thoughts about it through a meme:

This is another one of my favorite memes, trying to watch my favorite shows but there are always assignments to complete:

During my regular semester, it is very rare to have free time, and then when I have more than enough free time left, so I get suspicious 😛

This is a common occurrence before classes and meetings, I find it funny and thought of making this meme:

I like this meme because of how relatable the content is:

These are my thoughts every night and loved the content as well:

This one is very funny as well:

Made my first GIF post!

I am graduating in may of 2021! Spring 2021 is my last semester at York College. Since I had some options to take elective courses, I chose CT101 and loving the contents of this class.

This semester, I enrolled in some interesting courses. CT 101 was definitely one of the course that I look forward to attending every week. When I was looking for fun courses to take this semester, I was like this:

Looking for something

Then when attending the first class of CT 101 this semester, I discovered that this class is more fun than what I had imagined. I throughly enjoyed the first lecture given by Professor Ryan Seslow.

This is how I felt during the first lecture of CT 101 and I throughly enjoyed each part of it. I am learning new and entertaining things each week and this is truly fascinating.

When Professor Seslow teaches a topic I am very interested about, I am like:

Compared to my other classes, CT101 is obviously very fun and enjoyable. The class work is the most fun part of this class. I enjoy working on every single assignment. The fact that I am using gifs and memes to express my emotions is the best part of this class. I am looking forward to learning about all the interesting lessons in this class.


What makes Nafisa happy on the Internet?

My name is Nafisa Tabassum and I am super excited for this course and assignment! I want to share some fun gifs and youtube videos that I found really funny on the internet.


The internet has been a great way for me to learn new skills and enhance my knowledge. I browse the internet because somehow the curiosity pushes me through to use it more often. I am not super active on all the social media but I use Facebook, Instagram and TikTok and enjoy the posts. The internet is undoubtedly a happy place for me because I find different music choices from here. Recently I have been listening to a Malaysian singer on Youtube and I really enjoy the songs. This is one of the songs I have been listening quite a lot:

Here’s another fun video that I found really funny from “The Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon”. The interview was with Benedict Cumberbatch! Here is it:

I also have been working part time since last semester and here are some gif’s that I found relatable and funny:
