Final Blog Post

To be honest, I really enjoyed this class all semester. It definitely has been my favorite class this year. I’ve been having a lot of stuff going on at home and professor Seslow has been really understanding and patient with me. Most professor in other classes wouldn’t and some haven’t so i really appreciate that the most in this class.

we’ve done some pretty awesome stuff in this class and learned a lot. when this class started i was essentially tech illiterate. barley new how to operate a mac. but along the way leaned some great techniques. One that really got me was Hyperlinking … I’ve always wondered how to do it, now I do. I think that’s one technique that’ll really help me throughout life.

One of my personal favorite projects done this semester is the vaporwave. i really put a lot of work into this one and it has a lot of my personal feeling about gaming and the community around it.  honestly a lot of the time i have no idea where my projects are going and they turn out to become this message that i really believe in!

speaking of not knowing where the hell something is going… my website… mahmedstuff.com

It may still be bare bones but I originally had no idea what I was going to do with that site. i’m still not 100% but i think I’m going to make it a place where i can dissect misconceptions about the stuff that interest me. when i like something, i tend to delve deep into researching about it, looking at the ins and outs of the topics. so why not use the website to highlight my obsessive tendencies to know what the hell i’m talking about.

I feel like i will get a B- or B in this class. I think that’s fair, I haven’t been perfect but I’ve done all the assignments and learned a lot from when i started. I think I will maintain my website for a while because i do want this place to voice my opinion on certain topics and try to show people why i like the things I do.

Once again i thoroughly enjoyed my time in this class. I’d definitely recommend  any student to take this class, It’s a good learning experience and a good time. Thanks for the memories CT101. See you around!

Vaporware

Today I learnt how to make vapor-wave in class. what began as random miss match of symbols evolved into a message for gamers kinda. It really does not matter what you play as long as you’re enjoying it. Theres no need for “console war”. We can like everything, and if we don’t like something, you shouldn’t try to discourage others who enjoy it. Just play, no war, sad bois.

zack snyder wanted poster

So this was one of the DS101 projects we could’ve down form the Ds101 assignment bank.

If I did any of them, I defiantly wanted to this one. the main reason that I am a huge fan of the anime One Piece. Long, Long story short… it is a story about a guy who is trying to be king of pirates in a beautiful creative world. A big part of the series is wanted posters. the fandom loves it when a new wanted poster is revealed and usually leads to a lot of discussion. Heres one I just made myself.

The reason i picked zack snyder… I think it’s obvious seeing as how he destroyed some of my favorite characters in lackluster movies. Albeit he is not the sole reason to blame but hey, it was his vision. Wanted posters are just a fun thing in general. I encourage everyone to give one piece a chance if the time. I’ve seen many people accomplish catching up already. Hey it’s only 800+ episodes and ongoing.

Deadpool portrait

This project was a lot of fun and easier then I thought it would be. The hardest part was actually locating a good image for the project and setting the animation track up. I picked deadpool because it was one of the first movies that made me laugh out loud in the theatre. I’ve been a fan of the character for the longest time and was so happy when not only did he get a movie but it did amazing at the box office as well! I think I’m going to do another one of these because I enjoyed working on it.
