Farewell Blog Post- Tysain Shand

From the first day of class, I was into everything this class was about.  I love memes, to a ridiculous degree.    My phone is filled with them, my computer is filled with them and I fill my time with them.  One thing that I found a little strange is that I had never made a meme before this class.  Usually, if I’m into something as much as this I inspire me to do something creative with it.   Usually, I try to make it my own, but my out spin on it so that  I can say that I gave back something to that thing or community.

Above is the first meme I made, I think that it actually really good.  Impactful and there is a relation between the message and the picture.  It’s based on one of my favorite moments of my all-time favorite series Dragonball.  For the project of the first day, I challenged myself to only use sense from this series to convey what I was feeling.  This was something that I really appreciated about this class.  We had many projects tailored to help us learn a bunch of new skills but we were always encouraged to interpret it in our own way and us our creativity.


The proposition of building a website was a little bit scary for me, but looking at it 2 months later there was really nothing to worry about.  It was a very simple and easy process for me.  Once I had removed everything from the default site it was like the world was at my feet and I could do anything I wanted.  I actually really enjoyed this,  and I do plan to keep using the site and updating it because I feel like I found what I really want to do with it and I have a ton of ideas for content.  This was so fun I plan on making a website for my sister to help her with her business.

Overall this was a fun at rewarding experience. This was my first semester as a CT student so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Thankfully my first two classes in the study were great and very engaging.  I enjoyed bringing thinks I genuinely like into my school work and really exploring those things.

Below are some of my favorite things i worked on in the past few weeks.
