To begin, the top five things I will remember from this class are the fact that, the media is biased, women are consistently targeted, the media is for the most part, unfair, book banning is not a local incident, and the Rule of Thirds. Clearly, based off my knowledge I just presented, I did accomplish the goal of learning more about multimedia, so yes, I did reach that goal.
In my science class, the things I learned/will remember were, raw_input vs. input, Golbach’s Conjecture, Theories involving prime numbers, the professor’s fascination with basketball, and Fermat’s last theorem.
My favorite memory has to be my five-minute lip-sync performance of Don’t Fear (The Reaper) by the Blue Oyster Cult. Frankly my greatest memory is in the middle of the guitar solo sliding on the wooden floor knees first (it hurt, but what can you do?). This memory brings such a great impression largely in part due to the fact that I was only one of three-five acts to receive a complete standing ovation.
Sadly, I don’t think I’ve grown as a person. I might’ve become slightly (say 5%) more friendly, but other than that, not much. I guess the one thing I can take away from this is that I’ve become more independent, and consequently, prepared me for college and my career path.
I wouldn’t change anything I’ve done here at HSI aside from being in Generating Art in a Virtual World.
I can’t answer the last question, not because I don’t have anything, it’s largely in part because it’s too long to fit onto a blog without it becoming too lengthy, which in media, can matter. I guess I will say I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and the only thing I have to say is multitasking is real, no matter what the studies say.
