Goodbye Ct101

This semester has been a rollercoaster ride for almost everyone. We all had ups and downs throughout this semester. Not only the classes were overwhelming, but some of the professors were also demanding. CT101 was perhaps the only class that I enjoyed doing because of its specialty. It allows us to be creative, be free, and be ourselves.

This was my expression when I did my ct projects. All the homework was very peaceful. I never had a feeling that I was being pressured and I believe that’s when you a student perform better.

1st week of class, we did a project about ” Making me Happy post” This project was expected to introduce yourself and express yourself. We explored amazing topics like ” meme, Giffy’s, ” and so much more. We made our own memes.

This was the very 1st meme I made about my feeling toward this class. I enjoyed creating this piece because I did look forward to the ct101 class.

I also created a blog page. ^_^.  This is a very good experience because I never created a blog. I posted a few posts. Feel free to go check it out.

This class teaches me that our education system needs to be improved. It needs to look out for students. Instead of being demanding, the education system should give the student the chance to express themselves.

If the Education System were a person 🙂

We went through half of the semester throughout a pandemic, It wasn’t only difficult, but also scary. During this time, Only ct101 gave us an opportunity to express our feelings about the pandemic. No other classes did so. The other classes gave us tons of assignments and overwhelmed was as if we weren’t overwhelmed with the death of our family members during this pandemic.

What do I expect to get in this class?

AAAAAAA’s. Who doesn’t love getting A+ in a class?  well, let’s be honest. I think I deserve A- in this class because I missed one assignment and submitted a few homework late. Therefore I would deserve A- and the rest is up to the professor.

At last, I’d say thanks to who created this course and thank the professor for this amazing class.

Pano-Project

In our Digital Storytelling class we took pictures using the pano on our phones. It wasn’t how we usually take pictures. We took multiple pictures in one shot, not needing any Photoshop. It was pretty amazing because I have never done PANO shot. 

Here are some of the photos we took. 🙂

Covid19

The first time I heard about the coronavirus was the beginning of January. I took this matter very lightly because every few years we go through this kind of disease.  I work at the Airport and my manager and I were having a conversation and he said ” This is getting serious, Stay a little distance from people” Since I work in Terminal 1 where most of the Chinese flight comes in, he gave me gloves and masks. I was still not serious about the issues. However, when I heard that more than a hundred people caught this virus is when I started to distance myself from everyone and now we hit more than 18,000 in the United States.

Walking on the earth knowing that New York don’t have any Corona cases.

When there were more than 100 cases.

When there were 700+ cases.

My reactions on a decision to close Cuny and Suny and online courses

Although I was very happy that I don’t have to wake up and go to class every morning, I was concerned about how we would work through distance learning. I honestly like online courses but its much more work then I expected.  Professors are giving so much Homeworks and it is very stressful.

This virus is spreading tremendously and it’s scary because one of my family members got the virus and he is away from the family and we are devastated by this news and hope he recovers from it. We should all be aware and stay safe.

 

 

Are memes art ?

Are meme art ? Before I answer this question I’d like to define the meaning of ART. Art is an expression of human creativity and imaginations. It can be visual painting, or music, dance. A meme is also a visual representation of human expressions. Its an idea and creation of human that comes from one’s  emotions. Memes are art because we express our feelings though creating them.

For example, I enjoy this class and to express this feeling I have this meme.Me walking towards CT101 with confidence

My feelings when my homework’s are overdue

Meme gives us an opportunity to express ourselves and thats why memes are art.

Assignment #2 First day of ct101

When I enrolled in the CT 101 class, I was really nervous. Not because I am bad at using internet but because this is my first time taking 5 classes in one semester and I enrolled late. The 1st step into the class was horrifying.  I am in York college for 2 years and i wasn’t aware of the room.

My reaction when I entered the class     

I was lost at the beginning and hoped that this is an easy class.

At the same time I was tired and sleepy since that’s the only morning class I have.

Then I asked the girl next to me ” What is this class about” ?

After getting to know the professor and the materials that he would cover.

Half way through the class

Me leaving the class with confidence that i don’t have to drop the class.

Taking 5 classes In a semester can be stressful. But being able to have confidence that I will enjoy this class have reduced the stress tremendously. We need more professors that care about the students and make life less miserable. I love this class.
