The untimely Demise
*This is a writing assignment about a swift and unexpected passing of the protagonist of choice, 2 stars*
As the wind hugs his body and the gravity pulling him poorly resembles the hug he always wanted everything floods back. The first time he realized it was a lie, his first encounter with the girl of his dreams and all the emotions he felt. He finally accept his story wasn't to be happy or even finished. His was to be the motivation that his comrades and family use to finish the job. It seems dreadful; being the tool of success but the more he considers it in the few seconds he has before impact a sense of fulfillment decides to let him not feel alone.
Amounting to Me
*For this 2 star assignment and third project this week I wrote about my fears*
Daily Creativity Bank
- Another week of Daily Creates, first up “show us your shoes” me and two classmates decided to team up
- Second was my hope for the ds106 tour bus assignment
- Finally a personal take on the “what’s so funny” assignment started by an external creator
I have a dilemma I struggle with. Wether I would l like to amount to everything ie. a conquerer of the final frontier or a celebrity in A list movies. Or would I rather survive living like the the majority of people, on the down low. I truly believe I am capable of both with proper dedication. My true fear is never knowing or pursuing something my heart and sole are dedicated too. I'm afraid of living wishing I was doing something I'm not. If it's something I enjoy I don't care if I'm rich or famous. I would simply like something that I can dedicate myself too.
For this assignment we were tasked with using photo editing software to show yourself repeatedly in the same scene and lighting. I haven’t laughed at my own creation this hard in a while.
Thinking about Thoughts
Spread the Word
Austin Kleon wrote 10 ways to share your creativity and steal like a thief to share his view on how to be a better website/ content creator as well as how to provide higher quality content. He gave 10 ways to get your voice out and each have their own individual benefits that you can see for yourself here. However, I'd like to share my view on just one in particular. "Think process not product" his way of saying we are not perfect and that should be known. No body is magically levitating above the rest and we shouldn't pretend we are perfect. My personal world of high school is aggressively overrun with the idea that we all need to have the most likes, the most followers, the best style, or the funniest jokes. Simply put we need to show more humility and that is exactly what Kleon is saying. Show your learning process and be excited you're not doing something perfectly because it means you have an adventure ahead so share it.
