Final Post

Ct101 was definitely a learning experience for me. I remembered how excited I was at the beginning of the class and now that it is over, I wish that I could have done more. Witnessing the amount of creativity and talent during final presentations, I wish I could do it all over and really work and perfect my site, all of my posts and overall everything I produced in the class. I started off the semester with all these ideas and I did not take the appropriate time to execute them all. One thing I would have done differently is not trying to rush through each weekly assignment. Like everything else, you have to keep practicing one thing to eventually be good at it.

Making gifs and working with Photoshop for the first time was a lot of fun. Learning how to transform anything and make it your own through Photoshop was amazing, but it definitely is not an easy thing to do and I will continue to practice how to do it and eventually get better at it. Another thing that was a lot of fun was creating my own site. And while it was very exciting, I quickly realized that it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. My website isn’t where I want it to be as yet, I want to continue working on it and make it my own personal outlet.

Altogether, CT101 is a class that I would recommend to everyone, you absorb so much just in a matter of a few weeks and develop skills that you can carry on with for the rest of your life.

Feeling Happy?

One thing that makes me happy is the platform people can create and utilize just from their computers. The internet nowadays, is a way people can connect and impact lives, which I believe to be so amazing. Having the ability to express yourself freely through blogs, sharing your creativity on various platforms for millions to see …

One thing that makes me happy is the platform people can create and utilize just from their computers. The internet nowadays, is a way people can connect and impact lives, which I believe to be so amazing. Having the ability to express yourself freely through blogs, sharing your creativity on various platforms for millions to see and feel inspired is what is great about the internet. It gives a shy person a voice, a creative writer the ability to publish their work, a photographer the opportunity to share their images with the world, and a unique person a way to find and fit in a community.

Emotional Reactions to CT101

I remember the first day of class while reading the syllabus, I asked myself if I could actually complete these assignments; blogging, gif animating, social media projects and etc. are totally out of my norm. Digital story telling is definitely not economics and finance, which are things I study everyday. While I was very excited …

I remember the first day of class while reading the syllabus, I asked myself if I could actually complete these assignments; blogging, gif animating, social media projects and etc. are totally out of my norm. Digital story telling is definitely not economics and finance, which are things I study everyday. While I was very excited to learn new creative material, I was nervous because this is all very new to me.

Although I was aware that this class meant stepping out of my comfort zone, I know why I enrolled. Aside from Econ and finance, writing is my passion. I want to learn how to create a successful blog or public journal and eventually publish my work on my very on website. This way, I could share with the world the things that are in my head. Once I reminded myself of that, I shook off my doubts and gave it a shot.

I did it! created my second gif now and although it isn’t the best, I must give myself some credit. “You can always go back and edit your post” is something Professor Seslow says in every class. With consistency and practice I’ll see the progress I’m making and eventually master one assignment.

 

LOL Progress?

When your in class and Professor Seslow helps you with your animation (the above picture) Vs.  When you do it yourself. LMFAO!
