This week, while more work than the previous, was certainly more intriguing. I did not carefully read the weekly schedule carefully so I only completed one daily create this week.

It was simply enough, and sort of fun, so I am actually disappointed that I missed the others. The assignments were really good to get my brain thinking more creatively. The whistling a song assignment was simple enough but it made me think about the sorts of things that a good audio assignment might entail, which prompted me to think of what I feel is the beginning of a potentially decent contribution to our group assignment creation.
Writing a story from the perspective of a household tool was a different sort of challenge. It gave me the opportunity to think about writing in a way that my academic career generally does not. It was an interesting bit of self expression, even if what it was expressing was simple and mundane.
My other assignment, which was to put myself in a movie scene was a fun and easy visual assignment. Later I will aim for more challenging ones, but this week I was enjoying dipping my feet into the assignment pool. Describing what I had done and why I had done it added a level of complication, but it was still relatively simple, and again, provided a unique opportunity for self expression.
The about me was probably the most daunting task this week. As I believe I stated in last week, I dislike writing about myself. I decided to keep a portion of what was a digital about me that I made last week and add on to it. The digital history portion, I moved to another posting. I think that the actual about me and the digital section could do with some revision and addition later, so I will keep my mind open for creative ways to add to them.
This week, I also spent some time perusing other people’s work to see what they had done. I only posted one comment this week, but I think the assignments and other tasks in the coming weeks might prevent more opportunity for collaboration, discussion, and interaction. I am still learning to navigate the main site a bit to see what sorts of things people are posting.
