Weekly Summary : Week 2

Comments

This week I realized that I really struggle with commenting. It’s not that I don’t like looking at other people’s work, I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore everyone’s blogs and read/view/listen to the content they have created! It’s just that sometimes I really just don’t know how to communicate what I want to say. Because I haven’t been on social media for awhile I feel like I’m socially behind or even just out of the loop. It’s a strange feeling second guessing everything I type. My goal for the rest of the semester is to eventually not treat commenting or replying to others as such a procedural thing. I’m hoping that it will become a bit more natural for me to do those things as a result. There should be a sense of ease and relaxation when communicating with others and I am determined to reach that point.


Weekly Assignments

One of the best parts of my week! I was able to create fun content that helped take my mind off of my other school work. Although I really enjoyed making the actual assignment, I struggled with the write ups. I felt like I didn’t have much to say about the process of most of my work. As a result, I’ve been a little stressed that the writing portions might be too short or not enough. I’ve found myself trying to figure if I’ve said enough or too little. Next week I may try to approach the writing portion before I do the work; this may help me remember more of my triumphs and struggles.


Daily Creates

The daily creates definitely test my creativity skills, which are seriously lacking in exercise. When I first read that they should only take a couple of minutes, I was shocked. I assumed they had to be super in depth and would take a lot of time. I had a lot of fun with them and they were super easy to accomplish! Thankfully, I had a lot of pictures that fit the prompt and apps that perfectly did what I needed.

Daily Create: Get inspired by Keith Haring’s work and make your own interpretation.
Daily Create: Make an invitation card or poster to the TDC-party.
Daily Create: Get creative with a caption. What is happening in this scene? What’s the story? What happened before? After?
Daily Create: Enter the void: photographs that find beauty in emptiness —

So far, writing about the theme has been my least favorite part of each week. I don’t know why I struggle with it, but I find it so much easier to show the theme through my work rather than by talking about it.

I appreciate your thoughts on commenting. I find it a struggle myself, but commenting creates community and makes the course a conversation, and if we keep at it, it should comes more naturally. Great blogging.
