This class was such an awesome experience! In the beginning, I was really nervous because I knew that there were going to be couple of projects that required Photoshop. Once I got over my fears, I went and figured out how to used it with some help from the professor of course. Working with that program is still a little bit challenging for me, but at least I was able to learn some of the basics, and It was really fun. I knew that it wouldn’t be easy but it was fun.
Building my website was super fun. Figuring out my color scheme and looking at the different ways it could look was such a thrill. I’ve never thought that I would have my own website. There’s so much that I would like to do with it now that i’m understanding more of how it works. At first I just thought about using it to post my writing, then I decided to write about things happening my life. There’s more that I want to do, and I feel like I now have a platform to do these things. There will be more to come so stay tuned! Overall, this semester was really interesting. I took some time off so this was my first year getting back in the mix. I’m not going to lie, it was not easy getting through it all. I’m glad to say that I survived even though there is a little wear and tear. That’s ok because it builds character.
I chose to do the letter to my younger self. I want to write to my teenage self because when you’re a teen you are going through a lot of different things. It would have been nice to have someone knew exactly what you were going through.
Hey Pierre, its you from the future. No, this is not a prank its really me… Or you… I’m not sure how this time thing works. Anyway I hope today is one of your good days, if not hopefully this will make it better. I wanted to let you know that things do get better for you. It takes a little while but it happens. You’re not at your dream job yet but you’re well on your way! In the meantime, you’re going to have so much fun. You’re gonna go to your first concert… and its gonna be free! That’s right man, its going to be a bumpy ride but we are going to live it up. You still won’t make a ton of friends but that’s not your fault those kids are crazy. Most of them end up in jail anyway so there’s that. You will meet some kind genuine people. You will know when that happens so don’t try and rush that. Don’t worry so much and try to smile more. Stop saying that you don’t believe in fun and find something that you like and do that. Anyway, I hope this letter finds you well. Don’t worry buddy, pretty soon we’ll meet up.
When I first got to this class, I was really excited. I thought to myself this is a 101 class so it should be pretty cool. This is all true, but my one issue is that the people in my class are way younger than me. I feel like Chandler from FRIENDS when he changed careers. I know that everyone does things in their own time, but its a little annoying lol.
When I realized that most of my classmates were younger
Time for the final presentation!
Lately all I’ve been doing is going on you tube watching music videos. I mostly go on there to watch music videos or famous you tubers share their stories. When it comes to the music, I’ve always been a little behind with whats popular. Back in 2015 there was a video going around on Facebook that showed a dance group called the Royal Family. Their leader is Parris Goebel. I just find it so interesting how she started on Americas Best Dance Crew and has managed to make a name for herself. She has also started singing which I find cool. I guess that’s what makes me happy. Seeing how people start out and watch how they progress.
