I loved this week. I’m much more of a writer than someone who can edit pictures or write software (not even sure that’s the write lingo), so I was grateful for a manageable week.
Our story analysis was tricky for me. I couldn’t really connect with any of the examples we were given, so I went back to my trusty favorite: Tangled. The background readings and video made much more sense when I applied them to the movie. Read all about it here!
Creating a character really stressed me out. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and it took me a while to figure something out. I decided to stray away from my trusty mythology characters and go with something more “me.” Meet Manny the Super Nanny here.
Then we had our writing assignments that we got to choose. I used to write Haikus all of the time in elementary school, so I used Rapunzel once again to get more into it. I’m still not 100% happy with it but it’ll do! The 5/7/5 limit is tricky.
Then I went for a more personal assignment. We were supposed to pick an emotion and then choose there songs that made you feel the emotion you chose. Go check out my very own “sadness” playlist. They’re some of my favorite songs and never fail to make me emotional. Each of them is very personal to me.
I kept with he personal feel for the next assignment, and wrote a letter to myself. The assignment was to address your future self (in 10 years) and convey your hopes and dreams. Read about my one true hope that encompasses all hopes below.
Lastly, I wrote to my mom. This was hard for me because there’s just so much to say, I tried to condense it down to the main points and keep it short and sweet. Read about how awesome my mom is in the blog post below.
And of course, we had our daily creates.We started off our week by remembering 9/11. This day changed all of our lives, even those who were not alive for it. We’ll always remember.
Next we played around with badges, and I shamelessly called out my boyfriend for being terrible at texting. Love him to death, but LORD he’s bad at remembering to respond to me. I didn’t know how to use the software so it took a bit of getting used to, but once I got it I had a blast!
Lastly, we found Gremlins in our computers! I found this image on a google search and thought it was too perfect not to use.
It took me forever to finally get this up!! Thank God Florence avoided us, but we had our own little hurricane over here this week… My sweet fur baby (Faith) was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bone cancer in her spine and hips. I spend most of my week and weekend at the vet & carrying her around everywhere. Thank goodness we had the extended deadline because I needed it. Have a great week everyone!
