🤓Final Blog Post Submission👀😎💻

Over the semester, I have learned a lot from the CT101 class. I have learned more interesting and exciting things in this class than I had in other classes. It might not relate to my career but it gave me knowledge on things that I can do as hobbies or use it as a way to relieve mental or emotional stress. I never took this class seriously at the beginning of the semester until it hit toward the mid-semester. I find it very therapeutic and helpful in certain aspects of my life. Not only I did not take this class as seriously but also my personal website, it was more like a decoration of a place that I do not consider my house. However, over the time period, I started to give attention to it and start putting in effort into my posts. Probably started around when I was really stressed out and wanted to do something, so I decided to use this website to type my thoughts out. I started typing and it never stopped. After continually doing that for a certain amount of time and knowing whatever I type is protected by a password made me officially decide to keep the website even after I am done with this class. I felt secure about my posts due to the password protection.

Learning how to create GIF’s and use Photoshop to mash different images to create a beautiful art piece, adjusting the pictures and using other alteration filters had brought a sense of excitement and curiosity to explore further. I created this GIF at the bottom which is of my favorite person, Zayn Malik which you already probably can tell by my website background. Using pixabay to create the technology project was very intriguing. Below the GIF, is my Zine project work which I am really proud of. My least exciting project might have been the DS106 project, probably because I was not as serious about this at that time. It was more like getting the assignment done. I probably would have a different opinion if I had to do it now, might be more enthusiastic if I did it now.

I remember that we had to have at least 15 posts by the end of the semester which I do. Since I did all of the work, projects, and have put a lot of effort in each of my posts, I believe I deserve A+ 👀 and I will be maintaining this website as I have already stated. I had so much fun in this class and the best professor who was very patient, passionate about what he teaches and answered all the question when asked. In addition, he always took his time in explaining, responding back and making sure that everyone understood. I think that’s the best thing to have and very rare to see.

This is the best class. I wish I had the choice to take it again.😩

The Cross College, Campus, Course ZINE Collab Project!

Pictures That I Originally Chose For My First Image:

To start this project, I used these three pictures above using the Adobe Photoshop app. The picture with a girl was my main background picture. After using different Photoshop tools to alter the image the way I want it to be, I inserted the other two images which were also from Pixabay to create the full look. I used the adjustment tool for hue saturation and color balance, and the filter tool for swirls, texture, blurriness, glossy, and toolbox on the side to crop and delete the background of the first image.

The main concept of this image was to portray how technology can negatively impact someone’s mental health yet it can be positive at the same time considering the use of different bright colors in that swirl image which had a bunch of technical terms that are now invisible.

Original Pictures For My Second Image That I Chose:

Although, the project mentions to have at least three images, however, I decide to create more because of how therapeutic and enjoyable it is. The main reason is because of my friend, Samira, who is also in this class “CT101”. She showed me her final look for the project and I was amazed and fascinated by her picture. Due to that, I decided to recreate the look, the first one that I created was because it was a class assignment and I didn’t do with enthusiastic or willingly. However, seeing how creative and beautiful her was, I searched for more technology-based images from Pixabay.com since the project was based on that and chose these two images.

Adjustment of the two Images.

First, a thing that I did was adjust the image according to my idea. I wanted the background to be unpredictable. Technology can be empowering or a person’s downfall. I decided to use the second image because it gives positivity vibe even though the background seems negative due to its unpredictability yet little constructive. The colors of the background image are contradicting it’s real look in my opinion, unknown but could be a good unknown destination.

Hue saturation and Color Balance

The trees in the cell phone represent how things can look positive but can take you to places where you might never have thought of which can be negative as you can see the person is giving off different vibes from the bright colors.

I used the color balance and hue saturation to contradict the message that the image is portraying about technology and life. I also used a lightening effect for the last image using a pink color tone.

Lightening Effect

I had a good time creating the second project look compare to the first one because of the vibe that I felt from it. I am proud of myself on how creative I was. I had a lot of fun creating it.


Creating this GIF project was very fun and interesting. It reminded me of the time when we were exploring DS106 and I was seeing some of the best and creative GIF’s that I wanted to do. However, at the time I felt I was not capable due to not knowing how to do and the skills to do it. Being able to do that made me really proud of myself.

These two were my favorite GIF’s. I really enjoyed creating it by using different adjustment tools, filters, animation, and styles. One of my difficulties is trying to find the correct tool that I am interested in or wanted to use. With little bit of help from my friend who is also in the same class, I was able to achieve the look I wanted it. My next goal is to create a GIF from a video and I think that will be really cool and refreshing.

Farewell To My Beloved CT101

I never thought I would be writing this but here we are.

It has been fun and exciting for past few weeks being part of CT101. I have learned much more than I have learned in my other classes. Being in this class has taught me so many new things, creative ways to explore my creativity using different tools and techniques which I am very thankful of. It was a very expressive and innovative journey for me. I will miss being part of this class. This is my personal website. 

My Personal Website 🤪

Personally, I am not really sure what this website is really going to about but a few mixture of things that I could pinpoint right now would be random goofy things, interesting psychology facts, my personal point of view on life, poems, quotes, & love or marriage. I might even talk about my morning routines or what I do on a daily basis. ‘

I am also going to explore my creativity, personal interests, what I enjoy doing, dislikes, favorite books that I have read or the ones I have not. Why do I enjoy cleaning, reading, and being organized. How do I manage my college and personal life. I will be posting different and random things. Lastly, I am going to be posting things about Zayn Malik and Lee Seung Gi.
