assignment 10- Hello world
okay so this blog post i created was pretty informative. I started giving more in depth information on nursing classes and the curriculum you can expect
So i have finally decided what i would like to do with my website.
Since my passion is to become a nurse I have decided to dedicate a website towards information for people who would also like to become a nurse or are interested.
The top part of the home page consists of my vision board and then proceed to give information about ADN, LPN, RN AND BSN programs.
This process was interesting and different. Seeing all the applications that are available to download for the website was intriguing and cool. It was like shopping for website gadgets
I’ve finally downloaded word press and i am excited to use it and tinker with it. For right now my website looks like this,
this is the part where we get funkyyyy!
We are making websites. i knew this day would come. the domain name I chose is the name of my first Facebook. It is pretty clever. my name, Precious, is a word so i named my Facebook, Precious Precious.
Some other names i thought of were Preciousy.com but it was taken. i also thought of Pstyles but that was taken too.
On my website i have a couple ideas of what id like to post, but I’m still not sure which to choose.
The domain i chose was preciousprecious.com
I am thinking of posting blogs like how I do on this platform. blogging has become fun for me and I am glad to have learned how to do it.
assignment 6 :)
In CT 101 i believe I am doing very good. I’ve learned a lot and i am okay with keeping up with assignments. I’ve learned about hyperlinks and gifs the most.
I’ve retained this blog platform the most. The new skill I’ve learned is making gifs, making a creative website and making blogs. Reflecting on my performance in this class id say i’m doing very great.
I know how to make blogs with various media and more now. I believe I am maintaining an A in the class hopefully.
I definitely see my weekly blogging expanding. I see myself improving in many areas. I am missing assignment 7.
I comment on some classmates posts and i respond to people that comment on mine. I participate sometimes. i can improve on comments. Above are the links to my other posts.
I’ve decided to make a website dedicated to my vision in life. I’ve curated a vision board in scrapbook style. I chose this because i like to stay motivated and on my path. I like to remind myself of what I’m doing and who I do it for.
In my first mmm.page my vision board basically says id like to be a nurse practitioner. I will graduate with my Bachelors this December in health sciences and with my BSN in 2024. I’d like to own a house in long island and own a BMW x6 competition car. I’d like to have 2 kids and be married. id like to stay kind and true to myself and my roots. I’d like to be happy and mentally stable. To achieve all of this id have to work hard ofcourse. the rest you can read and use your imagination 🙂
You can access it here https://mmm.page/preciousy22.vision
Using mmm.page was actually really fun. it gave me the option to use gifs, shapes, links just like this blog page. I like how this class uses me to use my creativity. I was compelled to create something personal to share a little more about myself.

THANKS FOR READING.
* Assignment 4 *
this assignment was a bit tricky, but I’ll try. in the ds106 website I chose animated gif assignments. I felt that was the most interesting
This is the assignment I chose. It is very similar to the gif assignment we have done in this class where we made our own gifs. This showed how to take a variety of pictures and make it into 1 Gif.
This is where we resize, toggle frames and time of these pictures.
Finished MasterpieceThis is the car Gif that I’ve made thanks to the assignment showing me how.
Thanks for reading !
ct 101 meme
Memes became a big part of the internet. It is definitely art and a big way of expressing yourself as opposed to posting statuses. I would say they are a good and bad form of communication. It is a good form of communication because it can come off comedic or tell information in a more relatable way. It may be more effective for younger people or older people with a specific set of humor.
It may be a bad form of communication because it is not able to tell information in depth. Memes are not an effective way to teach.
This is how I felt on the first day of class
The room amazed me LOL
Memes can be used for storytelling and add spice to stories.
When some students talk i hope the teleprompter or whatever it is called hears them perfectly for the professors sake. 🙂
I love technology. The fact that technology is advancing every year and becoming a big form of way of life, communicate, educate…etc, this class is highly recommended.
This is probably the best reason as to why I would say i love this class. Some professors add unnecessary stress to students and enjoy doing it, not keeping into consideration that we may be juggling 5-6 classes at once.
THANK YOU FOR READING.
When i first walked into this class, the classroom caught my interest. Most college course classes do not have a bunch of apple computers and tv screens in them. At least for me!! LOL.
I am a health science major concentrated in nursing so just imagine my classrooms.
Shoutout to the professor. His demeanor and enthusiasm about the class created an exciting feeling for me. Creating content is very popular in society nowadays. I loved hearing about the course and what it would consist of. It made me excited to learn how to blog and create memes and gifs and more because that is very trendy right now.
Platforms like Instagram and Facebook gives people the opportunity to create content in many different ways and create profit. That is awesome!
One thing about social media and our phones, older people may see us young people as “addicted.” I highly disagree with that. In society now there are hundredssss of ways to make money off of our phones. Yes there is such thing as a phone addiction, but it is not cool to assume that.
Me personally i have heard that phrase a lot and 95% of the time i am doing something important or work/school related on my phone (emails, applications, banking, communicating with jobs..etc).
No I am not a phone zombie LOL
Compared to my other classes, this class takes the cake! This class gives me space to express myself creatively and on the internet. How great! My other classes consist of health, sexuality and philosophy (great to learn, but not creative).
The creative potentials of this class is endless. I am pretty sure we are able to learn a lot in this class. The creation and idea of GIF is genius! We are now able to take videos and compress into a short video, animation style and utilize on different internet platforms without taking up a lot of storage. According to Lorraine Boissoneault “The way it worked was to identify repeating patterns, then simplify them, allowing for lossless compression of files—meaning none of the data is trimmed in the shortening process” (2).
I feel excited about learning new skills that use internet tools. I definetly see myself using this knowledge in life.
Music. That’s it. That’s the post.
What has been making me happy on the internet this week and forever is…. music :).
I do not necessarily use it to give me a feeling (except for calm of course) more so when i am feeling. As people we go through the motions everyday. Something as simple as music can make everyday tasks more bearable (walking down the street, cooking, cleaning, driving, etc…) even waiting in an elevator.
I play music when i am feeling happy, sad, angry, motivated, hopeful, sexy… whenever. I also have a very deep love for a certain type of music and artists. I am in love with R&B. When you think of R&B, you may think of a slower type of music. Correct. I enjoy R&B on all occasions. It regulates my emotions when it comes to my mental health and overall saved my life.
My favorite artist is Partynextdoor <3 I discovered him my freshman year in highschool and I’ve been smitten since. I’d identify his music as being in a mild trance but not creepy like.
I have access to all his music due to Apple music, Youtube, Soundcloud, Musi, Spotify..etc. Youtube is a great platform to find music. I get to find his music slowed and reverbed when i am in the mood for something even slower 😉 .
Here is one of my favorite songs by him.

Thats all. Thank you 🙂
