How am I doing in CT101? What grade do I believe I am maintaining?
Well currently it isn’t the middle of the semester anymore, but without a doubt my i still have a response prepared as to how i am doing. I am currently a couple weeks past due on this assignment and recovering from some personal illnesses. I just barely recently finished my graduation exit paper but I feel a ton of weight lifted off my shoulders.
While I still have a few other assignments on my to due list that I have to catch up to I am honestly glad that they mainly pertain to this class. In correlation to my current grade in this class I believe knowing the current works missing my grade isn’t one to be proud of.
What have I learned the most? What is my greatest learned asset in this class so far?
In all honesty the thing I learned the most was the creation of Gifs. The world is currently still struggling to survive from the Pandemic so school is still mainly virtual. I feel the greatest asset i reacquired from this class was communication and laughter. I’ve never made a Gif before. I only watched and enjoyed other people’s work. Throughout this pandemic I’ve been plagued with homework and papers, draining me from happiness and socialization. While i have learned a ton it’s refreshing to actually be given homework based on our feelings, emotions and joys.
What skills have I developed , cultivated and displayed regularly in my posts?
There are a couple of skills I’ve developed and flourished within this class including Hyperlinking, GIF creation and image reformatting. While all these skills may seem fairly noobish, I never knew how to do this. I used to think cropping an image was all there really was to reformatting, oh how i was wrong. There is alignment, different resolution through file extensions, linking that image to other media, scaling etc. There is definitely a lot I may be forgetting, but this knowledge only grows, allowing me to build on the little skills I’ve learned.
How do I assess my performance through self-reflection in this class?
If i had to assess my performance, i think i’m fairly catching up just not there yet. I think the best is yet to come, so i don’t think assessing my performance just yet would be sufficient. I think I can best unveil my potential and development through the website creation we are currently working on. There I will have work that is more presentable and enjoyable to the viewers.
What do I know now that I did not know before taking this class?
Previously mentioned i now know how to format Images, create various Gifs, navigate the commons, and customize/ publish web media.
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 will not be satisfied until I see my blogging creatively evolving. My goal is to project my visions and artwork onto another mind that can enjoy viewing it and be inspired. I do not feel I am even close to that level of blogging yet but I think I can take the next step by evaluating and following dreams that i used to love, some of which died when starting my academic career. To list a few, I recently found a love in overlanding; where I would use my own off road recreational camping vehicle to scale untraveled terrain and share my experience of outdoor cooking, nature, and sights through blogging and media.
Moreover I used to really enjoy painting, and there are some days I have spare time to kill, so why not? Simply finding who I am and what keeps the flame in me going can evolve my blogging.
