Week 8 Progress

Image
 I am very happy with my progress in this class and I feel like I have developed a pretty good routine on completing my assignments. I have enjoyed creating my own version of stories and putting my very own twists to them. I have done some of the extra credit assignments as I have found them to actually be somewhat enjoyable. I feel like my blog and website are coming along nicely and I am happy how they both have turned out. Looking forward I hope to continue my same routine of completing assignments as they have gone pretty well.  Mountain

Week 8 Comments and Feedback

Image
 I would say the comments left on my posts are overall pretty helpful. People are very good at using positive reinforcement and pointing out what they really like about my posts and what I should keep doing and what is working for me. I would say the majority of the comments I leave on people's posts are pretty similar on how people leave comments for me. I try and leave comments on the things that stand out to me and that I like to encourage them on continuing to use that strategy. Even though I am not necessarily seeing these people face to face, I still feel like I am getting to know my classmates a little better based on their writing and comments. Looking forward, I will continue to leave positive reinforcement comments on people's posts because in my eyes, it is the best form of feedback. Feedback helps you see the road ahead I enjoyed this picture because I like the sunset and it is true that feedback can point you in the right direction or better direction than you prev

Week 8 Reading and Writing

Image
 I feel like the reading and writing assignments are going pretty well for me and I have been able to put some interesting spins on my stories I have been writing. I am pretty happy with how my portfolio and website has turned out. I feel like I have found the writing style for the different stories I have made really work with what I am overall trying to do. I enjoy writing in a sort of interview/radio style setting in my stories to get different perspectives about the various stories. Making reading notes before making my stories really do help because I am able to get all the main information and make a general outline of what I want to do with my story. Arjuna I picked this picture because it is of the last story I came up with and I really enjoyed making a talk show radio type of story about Arjuna. This was a big character and fun to write about. Looking forward, I hope to continue reading these stories and using them as different interviews or radio talk shows.

  Mahabarata CALL IN RADIO SHOW Hey what's up guys welcome to JHG radio show. We have a crazy day in store for you listeners on the other end. We're going to have a few guests call in that might have some quarrels with one another so today's show might get a little intense.  First up on the show we have Arjuna who has had a lot on his plate. Arjuna how are you this evening? "I have had better days I will say. What all has been going on to cause you to have some bad times? "Well there has been a lot before this but what really set me off was learning that my son was killed. When I heard that, I only had one thing on my mind which was to kill the person who did it which was Jayadratha. I vowed to kill him and I ended up carrying out my vow and killed the person behind my son's death." It seems this wasn't the end of your violent ways. What else happened after this? "Well after that I went into battle and ended up killing Karna in a battle." We
