Final Blogpost!

Suffice it to say, this semester has been ROUGH for me. Not be a Debby Downer and just complain the entire time, but between my home life changing considerably, spending several weeks in and out of the ER, and welcoming a new member of the family with my newborn niece, who very much enjoys screaming at the top of her lungs throughout the night (We got her checked out, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with her medically, she just likes to yell.) I’m surprised that I managed to make it through all my classes at all.

Could I have handled everything better? Absolutely. I’m not trying to use my setbacks as excuses, the blame does also fall on me for not being better with my time and making sure that I was prepared for the worst eventualities. But you know as they say, you live and learn.

I am genuinely apologetic for how little I was able to participate in this class. I was, and still am, grateful for the avenue of creative expression it afforded me, and I wish I could have had more time to focus on it, but I was teetering on the knife’s edge of burnout pretty much from the first couple of weeks, and I want to believe that I did my best despite the circumstances. Maybe I’m just being too kind to myself, but hey, it’s my self-reflection post and I get the final say.

Getting to learn to design a wordpress website was very fun, and you can find mine here. I wanted a space to store all of my writing and planning for my DnD groups, a hobby I am very much looking forward to getting back into now that I’ll have some blessed free time over the summer. I kept my design very simple and minimalist, both out of laziness and because I think that it suits me and my aesthetic.

I’m currently in the process of transcribing my writing digitally, and I’ll get them uploaded to the site once I’m over the last hurdle of finals.

Here’s a collection of the assignments I completed over the semester. 7 onwards had to be rushed over the last week or so, because once I recovered from my triple whammy of Covid, Bronchitis and Ear infection, I was desperately scrambling to catch up with all of my other classes and final assignments and making sure I come out of this semester without failing miserably.

1. What makes me happy?
2. What did I think of the First Day of CT 101

Now for what grade I deserve… that’s hard to say. I know I haven’t been the best about participation and absences. I know I definitely don’t deserve an A, that’s for people who didn’t do half the assignments over one frantic weekend right before the absolute final deadline, but at the same time I don’t think I deserve to fail. At least, I hope I don’t. Honestly, a B or B- would suit me just fine.

All I know is that I am VERY happy that this semester is coming to an end, and I’m desperately looking forward to getting more than 4 hours of sleep a night.

Love and Peace! Hope y’all have a wonderful summer break!
