This week was a little bit of an odd week because I had so many things going on at the same time and I felt like I was getting pulled left and right. I also was not able to make it to class this week so my blog won’t be as much of a reflection of class but a reflection of the work I did on my own from class as homework. From what I’ve gathered, a lot of the classwork was based on selfies and using apps. Also the idea of an unselfie was discussed and from what I tried to understand it has to do with details that a selfie doesn’t portray. From looking through the weekly post for class, I’ve learned, in my own opinion, that selfies are based on the person who takes them. A selfie can only portray as much as you want it to portray. That is why there are hundreds of people that hide “behind a computer” because they can pretend to be whoever they want to be since they can create a picture to look and show what they only want other’s see about them. A selfie doesn’t show the real you, which is where the unselfie comes into play because it deals with the other aspects. This ties in with the make I made in the make bank what deals with selfies.
Not everything that is seen in a selfie is real. In my selfie I look like I’m having a blast, meanwhile I was actually bored. My unselfie shows how I am someone who is more than just dressing up and going out. I am in charge of showing what my selfie looks like and what it should be about.
This week I also did my Daily Digital Alchemies on memes. I felt that because I have been able to make memes more and it had become easier for me I did them based on memes. When I created this I was at my aunts house and she has a dog which is practically like my dog so I got the idea for this meme when I kept making her wait for her bone because she wouldn’t give me paw.
This one was based on a view that I enjoy. I love going on vacation and having a view like this or going hiking to places that have lakes so I can have a peaceful view to look at. Views like this bring peace to me so I felt that it was the perfect picture to use for the serene Daily Digital Alchemy.
Hopefully this turns out to be a better week and my blog is 10x better. I feel as though this won’t be my best blog because I didn’t go to class. And I realized that missing one class feels like I missed a whole month of information because I feel so behind. Hopefully I can catch myself up!
