Domain Name: Digital Self

Why would we have our own domain name? I think students or faculty members may have their own domain name because it shapes who they are. We are in a world that opens an unlimited variety of usage of the Internet. Creating your own domain name can’t hurt social media. It just improves who we are. Rather than using our full name we can create something that describes our personality or a memory. I think other people have their own domain name to identify the domain host. A student for example might use something catchy whereas a faculty member might keep it profession. According to educational therapist, Warren Arbogast’s point of view of domain name is; “that they don’t only control and own, but they understand how it works.”

I would choose my DM based on who I am. It will incorporate my name and also a part of something I find interesting.

I would like to use “jtproductionz” or “jtcreate” as my domain name because of my initial first and last name, J.T. I like to work with all kinds of productions and share my creative ideas with others. I checked my domain name’s availability at https://instantdomainsearch.com/ and it lit up green once I created my DM. My initial domain would have been ‘jtproductions’ but was already taken and I think the ‘z’ makes it a bit more fancy and catchy. Hence, student domain. Also it would have cost over 2K for an ‘s’. As opposed to a ‘z’ is way cheaper.

Being lame? Yes being lame is cool~

Creating a GIF took me at most 3 hours because I really did not know how to make one so I looked online on how to do so. I tried many times on Photoshop but I failed countless of times. There were so many delays when uploading the file and duration delay which the GIF appeared really slow. Then I tried GIMP and found out I need another application to create a GIF so when I attempted it, the application kept crashing. In the end I created a GIF using an application called GIFCam. It was a much easier and simpler way of creating a GIF.I really want to make a GIF using one of my favorite shows called Doctor Who.This Gif would be perfect for people with weird dance moves that does not care about what other people think. It also reflects on my weirdness because I am pretty weird and that is what makes me who I am.

Awesome dance moves

I Got This!

My game plan is simple… I would spend atleast an hour on expanding my mind’s creativity everyday with the digital is a good start. I’d really like to expose myself to all the assignments because the world of technology is AWESOME! So trying to complete all the given asignments is my main goal. Creating GIFs to me would be EPIC! I’m interested in editting pictures and videos and really getting to work my way around photoshop. Blogging is nothing new but being able to embed my very own creation is great. I’m so excited I’m willing to get my hands on any offers! Although I may not complete all but I believe keeping the mindset to the top would leave less room for failure. I think we are given the option to do whichever assignment we want to do because this class is about creativity and expressing your ideas through digital media and opening your minds to think beyond media. I have considered that I may not get full credits for assignments because I’ve learnt that there’s always room for improvement and nothing is perfect.

I chose this because as frustrating as this class may seem, it’s cool. I got this… I’m fine! LOL

This Is How I Feel When When My Cousin Shares A Joke With Me About My Mom

This is how I would feel when someone tells me a funny joke about my mom for instance in a text message or on a social media exchange. In some situations instead of actually sending them back a typed text message you can actually send them an expression like this. Also, this expression is more fun and creative to be sharing with social media long with text exchange.

Reaction GIFs are a fun and unique way of expressing your feelings and how you would respond to a statement or situation. For instance,these days especially with the younger generation, people tend to drift towards reaction GIFs when they are exchanging views and even comments on various forms of social media. Reaction GIFs have definitely been giving a new outlook on social media and even regular messaging and emailing.
