I MUST SAY I HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT THE END OF THE TERM EVERY SEMESTER, SINCE I PROCRASTINATE , I’M ALWAYS LEFT TO CRAM TO STUDY FOR FINALS OR FINISHING ASSIGMENTS BEFORE THE DUE DATE. HOWEVER, I AM STILL LEARNING HOW TO JUGGLE THE WHOLE WORK /SCHOOL LIFE, RETURNING BACK TO SCHOOL FROM TEN YEARS AGO.

THIS SEMESTER  OF FULL VIRTUAL LEARNING WAS VERY ROUGH FOR ME. THE CLASSES I ENROLLED IN WERE NOT THE INTENDED  COURSE I WANTED TO TAKE , BUT I MUST SAY I DID ENJOY CT101 DIGITAL STORY TELLING AS WELL AS THE  SECOND CLASS I WAS ENROLLED IN.

THE REASON I PROBABLY DID NOT DO SO WELL IN CT101 IS BECAUSE¬† I’M ALMOST EMBARRASSED TO SAY THIS BUT, I HAVE TROUBLE WITH SOME FUNCTIONS OF A COMPUTER . ALSO, SOME OF THE TERMINOLOGY CONFUSES ME. I DID MANAGE TO FIND SOME HELP FROM A FRIEND AND THE PROFESSOR VIA EMAIL AT A CONVENIENCE. I DO BELIEVE I WOULD HAVE DONE WELL IF I WERE¬† PHYSICALLY IN A CLASS ROOM SETTING ,WHILE RECIEVING ASSISTANCE AS WE¬† WENT THROUGH THE ASSIGNMENTS.¬† THE RECORDERS WERE VERY EASY TO FOLLOW, HOWEVER, COMING UP WITH CONTENT WAS THE ISSUE.

I NOW HAVE THE ABILITY TO KEEP UP WITH THE NEW AGE ART, MEMES AND GIPHY WITH THE INFORMATION PASSED ON BY CT101 DIGITAL STORY TELLING .¬† I WILLUSE THESE TRICKS TO ENTERTAIN MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHOM I SHARE WITH VIA SOCIAL MEDIA . SIDE NOTE I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE¬† ¬†“DS106 Assignment Repository” FOR THE LIFE OF ME.

CREATING A WEBPAGE WAS NOT A DREAM OF MINES BUT  NOW I CAN PASS ALONG THE KNOWLEDGE TO OTHERS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN STARTING ONE.  ( MY WEBSITE WILL BE EMPTY ,UNTIL I CAN FIGURE OUT  THE DIRECTION) YALL CAN CHECK IT OUT  BELOW.

AS I STATED IN MY FIRST POST , I HAVE BEEN VERY ANTI- SOCIAL ON SOCIAL MEDIA  ESPECIALLY TO THE RANDOM STRANGERS. I DO LOOK FORWARS TO KEEPING UP WITH MY WEBPAGE AFTER THIS SEMESTER, GIVEN A VERY INTERESTING IDEA COMES ALONG THAT CAN MAKE SOME FAST AND SAFE MONEY FROM.

SPECIAL THANKS TO PROFESSOR SESLOW, FOR BEING PATIENT AND ATTENTIVE TO THE STUDENTS NEEDS. I¬† THINK IT’S GREAT FOR YOU TO TEACH A INTERESTING CLASS.¬† I MUST SAY IT FELT WEIRD TO LAUGH AT YOUR JOKES BEHIND A MUTED MIC BUT YOU DID WELL KEEPING THE CLASS VERY INTRIGUING .

P.S. WHILE CREATING MY WEBSITE, I FELL INTO A DITCH AND FORGOT MY PASSWORD . I ATTEMPTED TO LOG IN THREE TIMES AND WAS LOCKED OUT FOR 20   MINUTES. SINCE AT THAT TIME IT WAS WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING , I SHUT MY WHOLE COMPUTER DOWN AND TRIED AGAIN ANOTHER DAY. *WOMP WOMP*

NOW THIS IS THE REAL END LOL . ( FULL STOP)

WEEK #7 “The Mid-semester Assessment Post”

At this point in time in the¬† semester, I have learned details about memes and giphy . I would always see , use and most definitely share laughs and togetherness through expressions via social media thru meme sharing. I can say I never once looked into the history¬† of memes or the journey of it’s progression. However, if I had known creators were making large sums of money , I would have changed my career¬† direction much sooner. I look forward to learning more about “domains” and ” website creating, because it is clearly¬† the future of internet conversation. Originally , I took this class with the intentions of learning more tips and trick of how to use different programs on a computer , but when Professor Seslow began talks of building my own website I completely drew a blank.

Now that time has passed , paying attention during virtual learning I was able to understand the direction of “CT101 Digital Storytelling”. Honestly what helped me most is the recordings and direct emails to the professor and his attentiveness to my emails.¬† I do however believe I’ve done a decent job of keeping up, in hopes of receiving a passing grade in this course.

After some slight confusing , I finally decided what my website will be dedicated for. I find in such chaotic times, people fail to take time for them self. Living in the city that never sleeps, New Yorkers have adapted to living on the go. With my website, I invite anyone interested in  becoming more mindful with addition to tips and trick of how to slow down.

In the meantime , please check out this YouTube video to give  an idea of the direction of the website.

 

WEEK#9 Registering a Domain Name

..however, I thought I followed the proper instructions to sign out then log back in directly from google and guess what?! I was locked out for 20 minutes.

Since I have time to spare, I look forward to writing things down as the professor advised us, instead of trying to remember everything.

Look forward to my website, it will be posted in the next couple of blogs.. once I can actually log in.

WEEK#5 DS106 AND ASSIGNMENT RESPOSITORY

ANIMATED GIF ASSIGNMENT

THIS IS EXACTLY MY SENTIMENTS WHEN YORK SENDS OUT EMAILS STATING WE ARE RETURNING BACK TO SCHOOL AS SOON AS EVERYONE IS VACCINATED. LOL SADLY MY GIF DOESN’T MOVE TO DEMONSTRATE THE TRUE REACTION.

 

 

WEEK #4 Are Memes Art?

ANY FORM OF EXPRESSION IS CONSIDERED ART. IN THE MEME CASE, COLLECTIVELY MEMES  HELP BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER  BY MAKING A CONNECTIONS BETWEEN FEELINGS AND GUESTURES OR EVEN THROUGH SIMILAR INTEREST.

MANY PEOPLE WILL LOOK AT THIS MEME AND THINK SIMILAR THOUGHTS. HOWEVER, IT CONFUSES ME.

WEEK#6 Potential domain names

A few domain names I though of were,
“ClearThinking, “SelfAwareness” “Liveyourtruth” “BeautifulThoughts” and “PositiveThinking” .




The reason I took on this directions of posting is because, in this chaotic world we live in , every one deserve time to take a minute and think or not to think and take a breather. Reevaluating ones self through the years of fast paced progressing is strongly suggested in order to stay on focused.

Assignment #2

Hey peeps,

I’ll just start off with saying , the pandemic has made me the most anti-social person on social media, unfortunately.

However, I do find myself   scrolling on Instagram. The recently added “Reels” section can ultimately take up minute’s at a time, if anything hours glued to the screen. I personally enjoy beautiful home decor videos,  or inspirational quotes. But every now and again, a prank or animal video with voice-overs can cause me to slap a knee.

Anywho,  in the near future,  I look forward to keeping up with the latest trend of social sites just so I don’t fall out the loop.
