I have learned so many skills in CT101. My professor was great and did a nice job making the class interesting. I learned how to use photoshop and quicktime. We also used newhive a lot making out gif come alive and creating different posts every week. I usually had a theme every week and created 2 posts to represent that. We created vaporwaves, net art, hyperlinks and we did a portrait project. We also got a change to see other classmates work and comment of their posts. I think I will use my skills in the new world by posting gif on my own social media. I do want to keep posting on my website but I’m not sure if I would post a blog every week. The gif I created shows what i felt like all semester with all my classes on the left and on the right shows how I felt in this class. I really enjoyed it and was excited to come to class every week. I also met two friends, Kenita and Keville in the class which made it fun!
So I made this post using newhive incorporating what I love about December and some activities i would like to do. Rockefeller center is a staple for New Yorkers and other parts of America to enjoy the lighting of the tree and all the beauty it comes with. Ice skating and skiing/snowboarding is one thing you can enjoy during the cold months. I’ve never been snowboarding but I would like to try it. Ice skating opens up in Bryant Park every year and they decorate it so nicely with a clear theme of the holidays near by also hot chocolate is great way to warm up after. I found online that in Madison Square Park they have a life-size gingerbread house which is on my list of things to do before the holidays. If you like igloos with a great view 230 Fifth is back open for their annual igloos in the winter. Grab a drink and get warm with a group of friends under an igloo on their rooftop or stay indoors and see the empire state building and the bright lights of the city. Last but not least, end the New Year right and enter in another year of unfinished resolutions and happy thoughts.
Everyone thinks of Thanksgiving as a holiday which involves turkey as the main dish. Others don’t celebrate it as a holiday. My Thanksgiving was nice and quiet spent with family and friends. On Black Friday I went to Tanger Outlet in Riverhead with my dad and shopped for Christmas presents.
This is the original movie poster.
This is my copy and edit.
This quote makes you take charge of your goals. We all have been in a situation where you might feel manipulated but remember to be the boss and be that powerful force. A quote that I have in my room is from Dr. Seuss and it says, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” Be yourself don’t change but also don’t get taken advantage of.
This is my first Vaporwave. It looks pretty cool since it’s my first time making it. The background is the northern lights and I just found spinning transparent images off of google then uploading it all to newhive.
I went to Darkside Haunted House last week and it was so much fun. This guy below reminds me of Zachariah Kull from Scream Team. I went with my friend who couldn’t even make it to the first exit because she was so scared. It was her first time going to a haunted house and her experience is one to remember. It was an hour away and getting there led up to be one of the best haunted houses I’ve been too.
If it’s your first time going to a haunted house I definitely recommend it.
Halloween is once a year where any age gets to dress up in their favorite costume and trick or treat. Candy is always a must and scary attractions are open for the month. It’s so much fun to see everyone having fun and carved pumpkins are on doorsteps for decoration. It makes this holiday season start with the crisp air and creepy stories.
