This week wasn’t so hard. The biggest problem I had was trying to upload the media to the introduction blog post. The Instagram post gave me the hardest time, but with an email to the professor, I realized that your Instagram has to be set on public for the link to work right (duh). I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to make a soundcloud audio recording at first either. I kept trying to do it on my phone, but the “upload” button was never showing up, but again a laptop was needed and my brain to be turned on was also needed. First reading through the first weeks assignments three days late I was a bit freaked out at how much work it seemed, but most of it was making social media accounts that I already had, so half my steps were already done. That definitely helped me on my timing.
I felt like I knew exactly what folklore, urban legend, and myths were before I looked them up, but as it turns out there is so much more to them. I brushed up on them all and have a general understanding, but I know it’ll get better throughout the semester.
Honestly, I believe this is a great theme to assign this class because I think everyone can relate at least a small part of their lives or even their childhoods on it. Everyone knows the stories of Cinderella or even the wicked witch of the west. Individually, each person can go far and in many different ways depending on their interests, and as a group there can be really thoughtful discussions as well because of how well known and easily accessible most info on this theme as a whole is. I’ve always been interested in Harry Potter since I read the books in fifth grade, and The Lord of the Rings since middle school. I could talk about wizards and action all day from either of those movies, so I personally am excited about this theme not just to be able to look more into the things I know so much about, but to learn new versions of childhood stories I grew up hearing, and even learning so much more from my classmates.
Hi guys, this whole blogging thing isn’t my absolute favorite. I had to use domain of one’s own once before and I didn’t like it then either. These are all my intros, so if you watch or listen to one, they’re all relatively the same.
