Blog 7 – Reflection

How am I doing in CT101?

Overall I would say I am doing well in the course, I do have a few missing assignments but I hope to get them all done soon. The course so far was very informative and kept me interested.

What have I learned and retained the most?

The main thing that I would say I learned was that you can put a lot of elements into your blog posts and really make it how you want. It can be as personal as you would like it to be.

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

I now know that gifs aren’t just for entertainment purposes, I know now that they can be used express certain expressions that can really be said with words and such. Gifs can make your readers fully understand what you’re trying to go for in your posts.

What grade do I believe I am maintaining and why do I deserve that grade? 

I think I am in the B range given that I have a few missing posts.

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

My work has definitely got more creative since when I started. I can feel comfortable saying my posts are more personal feeling because I’m not using just any random gifs and memes I find. I hand pick each gif from things that are relevant to me. I also haven’t really missed any of the classes.

Are you participating during the class time? If not, explain why.

I’m not really the type to raise my hand and ask/answer questions when in class. When I get to class I typically take my seat and follow along with what is being discussed at the moment.

Blog 4 – Passions

I would say that I’m pretty passionate about anime, cartoons and things like that. Growing up I was always a fan of One Piece, an anime which follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his crew on their quest to find the greatest treasure “THE ONE PIECE”.

One Piece is renowned for its diverse and compelling cast of characters. Each character has their own unique backstories and their own goals and ambitions aside from Luffy’s main goal of becoming the King of the Pirates.

Blog 2 – Gifs and the First Day of CT101

What did you think on the first day of the CT101?

On the first day of class, I was kind of nervous and also excited at the same time. I felt nervous about meeting new people and introducing myself, but I was excited about the course because it seems like a very fun class to take.

Did you like hearing about the course and its creative content? How did it make you feel?

Upon hearing about the course and its content, I thought that it was relatively easy work, but also knew that if I waited too long and let the work pile up I would feel overwhelmed. (I waited too long and now I’m overwhelmed :o)
