So Long, Farewell CT 101!

As I stated in my first post,  Back To School After Winter Break Blues: I Wasn’t Ready, my goal for CT 101 was to explore more of my creative side.  So did I achieve my goal?

  • Commenting/Critiquing:Well, I think I achieve some of my goals but I wish I could have been more active when it came to commenting on others’ websites.  My excuse: I have 6 classes, so trying to spending at least 4-5 hours a week on a website was very hard. (Even though, I’m somewhat engaging with others in online conservation about my work, I would barley comment on other classmates’ work ) My plan this summer is to actually look some of my classmates’ sites and engage in online conservation.
  • Blogging: As you all know, my website is supposed to be geared towards black beauty, yet I only have 4/10 posts that actually pertain to the purpose of the blog.  I’m not sure either I should sulk or be happy about it. Sometimes, it’s good to discuss things other than beauty. But at the same time, I wanted my blog to  follow a clear objective,
  • Digital Storytelling Projects: I tried my best to complete assignments of four different media throughout the semester. Post such as Flexibility in StoryTelling: Diversity for Black Women and  Creating Magic With Photoshop for Amateurs!, I feel encompasses the different types of media. I loved  Creating Magic With Photoshop for Amateurs! because this was my first interaction with Photoshop. In my post such as My First Impressions + Review: Juvia’s Place The Saharan Palette , I really incorporated things such as visual audio (Youtube) and using pictures and gifs to explain my love for the Saharan Palette.

Overall I love this class and I thank Ryan for his guidance throughout my class experience in CT 101. If I was re do my undergraduate year again, I would definitely been a CT minor.

Wearing Makeup to Lie Others? Girl Bye!

“Why do you wear so much makeup?” “Highlight is too bright” “Contour is too strong” “Why are your lashes so dramatic?” Me:

What Is Making Me Happy: Darkskin Beauty

One thing that continues to make me happy is the love and support shown towards darkskin black women like myself. Although, they are belittled or hyper sexualized by others on a daily basis, it’s still refreshing to see others embrace their skin.  Here are some social media accounts that showcase the beauty of black darkskin […]

Back To School After Winter Break Blues: I Wasn’t Ready

Although York College is a commuter college, nothing beats the feeling of coming home for winter break!  No more crying about assignments from miserable ass professors who like making my life a living hell! No longer did I have to wake up 2 hours before class starts (Living in the 845 problems son.) Lowkey, I […]

Although York College is a commuter college, nothing beats the feeling of coming home for winter break!  No more crying about assignments from miserable ass professors who like making my life a living hell! No longer did I have to wake up 2 hours before class starts (Living in the 845 problems son.) Lowkey, I missed interacting with other people(#IntrovertProblems).

While people were linking up and making moves,  the only moves I made was to eat and sleep.

Unfortunately, winter break is over and I’m still adjusting to waking up to go somewhere.

Girl….the fact I have to watch professors are drone on and on for 4 days a week! And actually do work! Sigh!


So anyways, it is week 3 of CT 101 and so far, its okay. Ryan seems like a dope ass professor! Lowkey, I’m happy that there is another person who is obsessed with Twitter like me!

My hope for CT 101 is to explore more of my creative side. Whether it is through creating gifs or blogging , I hope to come out my shell and hopefully achieve something.  #ContentCreative #FutureYoutuber.

Flexibility in StoryTelling: Diversity for Black Women

For this assignment, I chose two different project ideas that seem “controversial”or “too serious”. But I’m here to educate others about the importance of creating friendly, safe spaces for P.O.C (People of Color), especially black women. The first project idea I chose is Fox News = Diversity because I felt that this Reddit post was related to what […]

For this assignment, I chose two different project ideas that seem “controversial”or “too serious”. But I’m here to educate others about the importance of creating friendly, safe spaces for P.O.C (People of Color), especially black women.

The first project idea I chose is Fox News = Diversity because I felt that this Reddit post was related to what I wanted to discuss about when it comes to diversity in the makeup and fashion settings.

The second project idea I found on weavemama.tumblr.com. Like my first idea, I chose this because I want to show differences in blogging by white bloggers and black bloggers.

I’m not sure if I will use the second one but the first project idea is a go!
