I have something…that will turn into idk what

 

Our last post! Well, I’ve never really had a blog where I can express myself and where I can fully rant about school shit. In all honesty, this has been very therapeutic for me, and Kim, I’d like to thank you this–for letting us be ourselves and for not taking our voice away as we write what we learn and how those ideas can be applied to our life. I’ve had so much crap going on with school, and sometimes I find things so ridiculous that I just don’t try put in that much effort. Like for example, I had to do this poetry scansion thing for one class, and I don’t know shit about meters or feet so I tried, but it wasn’t my best work. So…now I’m like…”well, if it’s not going to help me, why would I sacrifice stuff like eating to teach myself how to do this?” I actually had this uber driver tell me that he’s never been the school-type guy, and he said, “Why would you even waste so much money on tuition if you have to go home and teach yourself what your paying the teacher to teach you?” I swear that was like a slap in the face…lol, but anyway….back to things that I actually want to do and care about.

I didn’t have a clue on what I wanted to do with this project. Actually, before I read Ginamarie’s post, I was thinking about baking something, but then Kim said something about someone else doing that, so I was like, ok nope! But I started to think that I didn’t want to do this alone–I wanted to create something with someone else, and I asked my group if they wanted to partner up. As a result, Heather and I are going to do a podcast–and that excites me. I’ve only done a podcast once, and when I did it, I was happy with the result. It’s always fun hearing it too, just because you mess up and you hear your mistake and you laugh a lot. It’s good. What we’re talking about is still a mystery. We didn’t get to talk about it that much, but I know that it’ll be good.

    I agree about the blogs. It’s always great to be able to express what you’re really feeling without having to be mindful of being too formal. I think it would have been fine if you had done another baking project. Some projects are bound to overlap a little plus I don’t think anyone would be opposed to more food lol. But a podcast sounds really fun and I think it’s an awesome idea to with. I imagine that once we get the ball rolling with the multimodal projects, you guys will eventually figure out the topics. A suggestion I would offer would be to take some major points from some of the readings and go from there and see where the conversation takes you. Maybe even listen to some other podcasts to get some inspiration or ideas that you could use in your guys own podcast. Either way I think it will turn out great! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

    Love the idea of a podcast! I used to do one with my colleague Pat Berry called Back to School where we talked about education and technology: http://backtoschoolcast.com/

    I have a nice microphone if you want to borrow it. This is a great idea…let me know how I can help.
