I find it a little odd to do a wrap up post since there’s still around two weeks left of school. For the most part, this class has definitely been…different…from my past English classes. Well not too different since my sophomore English teacher and junior English teacher collaborate often, but still distinct from a typical high school English course.
For one, the fact that I’m able to run a blog for points is pretty great. There’s more freedom to write what I want it and ties education enjoyably with technology and social media. However, I can’t help but think there’s too much freedom at certain times. I never know for sure if my teacher reads my posts or if my peers are skimming through my material (unless they leave a like of course). This leads to slight laziness on my part, which I’ve been dealing with since owning a blog in my sophomore year. Also, I’m still not too keen on my teacher’s idea of “remixing.” I hardly have any posts regarding the books I read, and for that I’M SORRY MR.Z. I not much of an analyzer and to be honest I don’t have much life experience to connect the books with my own life. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the books we’ve read this year. We’re currently reading The Catcher in the Rye and it’s quite an amusing read.
Another thing I want to touch on about the class is the ideaFM project. This is something where I really slacked on. I have bursts of motivation now and then, but the fact that the deadline is so far away gives me the “mehh it’s not due for awhile…” mentality. I could have done so much, but I didn’t because I suck and do work in accordance to deadlines (tip: don’t do this). I still got to go through basic mechanics of animation with this project, but I got caught up in art requests and commissions. Hopefully I can incorporate that into my project since I did nearly twenty requests for my art blog. Besides, I’ve been meaning to discover an art style for myself and I can say this really helped stabilize a style unique to me.
That’s all I have to say about this class for now since its so late and I’m running an very few hours of sleep lol
Goodnight everyone ㅇㅅㅇ
