Wrap9ing Up

I greatly appreciated the lower quantity of assignments this semester, especially since I have so many essays, readings, and tests coming up in my other classes! I completed three Daily Creates, and this week they were much more spread out than they usually are. In fact, I feel like I have done so little work for the class this week, that I almost forgot that I had already completed two Daily Creates prior to today!

I finished reading California about a week ago, and I have had nobody to talk about the book with who has already read it. This Daily Create allowed me to have a brief (one-sided) conversation about Frida’s typical day! I used Canva to create the to-do list, and I changed the colors around to find a combination I liked.

My favorite animal has been an okapi ever since fourth grade, when I completed a short research project on them. I have a stuffed okapi on my couch at home, and I am always amazed when a zoo has an okapi or two (why doesn’t the National Zoo???) I was excited to share my favorite animal, and I named it the Zerse, combining zebra and horse because of its zebra legs and horse-like body!

Today’s Daily Create immediately made me wish I had completed another one earlier in the week, because I am not a fan of drawing. Mostly because I don’t understand how to do it. However, it presented the challenge of me having to do my best. A few of the other responses have looked amazing, but I only spent about five minutes from start to finish on this, and I at least attempted at some shadows! Looking back, it would have been easier for me to do a different Daily Create, but I am overall happy that I completed one that challenged (and slightly embarrassed) me.

Tuning into other radio shows was amazingly fun! You can see my post about my own show and the two I listened to live here. A few other groups posted SoundCloud links in their posts, so I have heard a majority of the radio shows. I was surprised how different every show was, especially since we were all given the same directions. This was nice because I never knew what to expect when I first began listening to each show. I thought it would be impossible for everyone to tie in emerging evidence, but all of the ones I listened to did! A majority of my comments have been on posts reflecting on the radio shows, and I’m happy to see the total amount of comments increasing!

When I read that I would have to redo an assignment (which I suspected was coming up because I mentioned that I wanted to redo some assignments during the self-evaluation, and I received a comment back that we eventually would), I immediately thought to redo my juxtapose assignment. I had a feeling I did not do it right the first time, but I was not sure how else to approach it. Since I have now seen other people complete the assignment, I knew what to look for. My face is still not exactly lined up, which you can see here, but it is definitely an improvement, and I am much happier with the result!

During the apocalypse, I would need some form of entertainment, and this would likely be a deck of cards. They can be played alone or with someone else, so I would not necessarily need a group of people. I do not think I would survive long in the apocalypse because I have no survival skills, but at least I won’t be bored out of my mind waiting for the zombies to leave! Plus, it would distract me from the entire world-ending situation.

P.S. If anyone knows how to center tweets that I linked to embed, please tell me! I can’t seem to figure it out.

    I love how you titled this post by incorporating 9 in there! Also, I love the checklist you created for Frida! I read California as well, and I think this definitely qualifies and illustrates her personal daily check-list. Also, I love the name, Zerse!!! Great job!

      Thank you! I’m glad someone else finished California as well! It was an amazing story, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we’ll be doing with the novels in the coming weeks.
