OMG last day to blog!

I am very glad I got to experience CT101 because I always wanted to start a blog but never knew how. I never had the right guidance. So to come here and have the opportunity to do so was great. My favorite part was being able to add my own ideas to  my post. The hardest part for me was to come up with a domain name.

I got my inspiration for instagram. There is someone on instagram who post pictures of people and he tells there story, that is exactly what I wanted to show in my blog post. My overall experience in the class was great I learned a lot. Things that I never knew before. I never knew how cool it was to make a GIF. I learned a lot from my professor he was very attentive to the class and always willing to help. If I can do something differently it would be to change my domain to use it more in the long run.

@humansofny makes me happy

This week what made me happy was the instagram @humansofny. He post pictures daily on peoples real life problems and right now he is posting about inmates from five different federal prisons across the Northeast including Manhattan and Brooklyn. I always enjoy reading his post because most of them are there because of drug dealing. But they all have a reason behind selling the drugs. Its sad to see how some people chose the easy way out but some had no choice. It makes me feel so appreciative of my family because at our lowest in life they never saw drugs as an answer to fix the problems.

The inmates that he talks about had a life before they chose that route. They were working or studying in school or doing both. One women had 4 kids and a sick mother and ended up transporting cocaine from Manhattan to Massachusetts for 2 years and ended up going to jail for 25 years.
