This week was a bit hectic. But I got everything done and really enjoyed the prompts that were given to us this week. I’ve mentioned this already in one of my writings that I’ve always been one to make up characters and stories. So the ability to exercise my creativity and work on some creative writing (something I hardly ever am allowed to do given my majors) it was really liberating and fun. My favorite assignment was definitely the day in the life prompt because we had no control over the character that was given to us on the superhero name generator site.
What makes a superhero and a superhero story
This week I felt that I was getting into the proper swing of things; my blog and social media profiles have been up and I feel more comfortable using them. My favorite of the assignments I did this week was composing a playlist around the concept of hero introductions because I love how music plays a role in film and television (and in my personal life). My daily creates took some work; I sidetracked myself trying to merge two photos together using Photoshop–a program I have never used before. So a lot of time was wasted on something that, while I worked hard on, I was unsatisfied with the result so I scrapped it. I think the daily creates I chose to do were creatively challenging enough but they didn’t consume my time like they are supposed to. My other two assignments I chose because they were interesting and forced me to be more reflective. For the bucket list, I do have a large running list of things I eventually want to do in life but never a reason for why I want to do them. So the fact that we had to explain our reasons for what is on the list helped me realize that it is not about the quantity of goals you have but rather the quality and the goal’s personal importance. I know from this week and for the weeks ahead, I have to work on my participation, like commenting on others’ blogs.

Bucket List (to be edited later) (in life)
This is the first week of DS106 and I’m a little overwhelmed. I went to the DKC for the first time ever and they were really helpful. Right now, I’m still figuring out the *aesthetics* of my various platforms. They’ll continue to be work in progresses. The entire process was a little out of my comfort zone since I’ve never had to do anything media-related. I’m much more used to reading books and writing essays. But I have everything set up and am looking forward to learning much more! (In addition, I love comic books though more for the art than the story lines, which may be a little pretentious.)
These are all my new media accounts:
