“Inanimate Alice” the story line was very clear and entertaining and really lead you throught the stroy and encouraged the reader to keep going. The back ground music helped build the moods of the chapters. The first chapter when the faimly was in China due to the setting and the music set up that it was normal for the father to be gone a lot, but not for him to be gone so long without checking in and left a doubt or concern as to if he was ok and if they were going to find the father. It also struck me as sad, the mother and daughter seemed diconnected from each other and Alice seemed very lonely. When the moved on to Russia the family seem to have become even more disconnected and Alice was an after thought unless there was a threat to, then it was time to take off and hide she feeling were not even thought of and that theem carries over to thier more to England. In England she was finally alowd to go to school with other children as she desperally she wanted, however she did have trouble knowing how to “fit in” with the other kids and she was willing to get herself into trouble doing so. The games embeded in the story were fun and did add to the story line . I am waiting for the other chapters to be published and hope that Alice finds more securety and sablity in the next chapters. I did like the story and the way it was presented.
OK this blog is going to be short and sweet I fear. ” I , You ,Me ? Ok first off I have tried to make sence of this poem/story a couple of times. I thought that maybe that now we are at the end of the class it would make more sence, but no dice. I still see that htere is one” I “and I’m guessing that we are to read out from that one”I”. Ok so are it starts to move I can and do put a fue sentecens together, but then they don’t make any kind of sences or have any kind of meaning or realtion.I don’t know if any one else had the same problem or it was just me. I did not find this selection entertaing,but intreaguing. It really did try to make sence of it ,but I was loosing valuable time reading and re-readimg and starting over and over tring to get what I was to get from it. I’m not sure that I liked, it frusreated me more than any thing, I just could not figure out what the author wanted the reader to get from it and I don’t really think I got any thing from it. I was kind of fun? I wish I could have figured it out and I think I’m fairly smart ,but it made me question that . I really don’t have much more to say about “I, You ,Me” and unfortunaly I’m still short the word cound by ten words. Sorry.
I took an other look at “My Body”. I still don’t think that I have read the entire story, it can be a little hard to follow. I found it very easy to forget what “page” I was on or had been on when there are so many options as to what to read next. With that said,the story was very entertaining and I actually had to stop myself from clicking on the next and then next and the next thing just so I could write the blog about it. If I had not stopped myself I think I would still be reading it and not wirting my bolg. There are points where it seems that the author was curious of her body and the changes her body it going through as she became a womem. There are other points that she seem discusted and inconveanced by what her body was doing. As when she talked about arm pit hair, how she sweated more than the other girls and that it smelled bad to her, or the frist time she realized that she had grown breast. She actually sounded compltely devistated that she had breast and that she had to wear a bra. On the other hand she love the idea that she had hair on her toes and that made her toes “cute” and hobbit like. She also notice that her arms were more musclular than the other girls and that made her more powerful than them and she seemed to like that. She comes off as a Tom-Boy and that just how some girls are. My mom wanted a girly girl and kept me dressed as such any time she could. Dad wanted a boy and every chance he got , he had me under the hood of a car or fishing and camping. Life was cool on both side was cool. This story or account of the authors development was intertaining ,but a little weird at the same time .
Ok been tweeking my mock up and I think t is almost there. Got to start looking for the images. Some of them I thik we have between me and my parents others might have to go surfing for. I have to remember/ figure out how to change color fonts. I have learned, when I taught that if I want a student or parent to pay attention to a note I sent home it needed to have different colors are pictures too. Anything sent home without color didnt make an impact on them. Now I wish I could some how color the spoken word, don’t think my teenagers hear anything, except maybe food.
Ok facefook on a side note is irritating, they have offered a https for mat,however halp the application won’t run in the new https format. No problem right, go back to http, ya right, I picked http, saved the changes(three times now) and then tried to run the app. No go, erro message ” can run in https, change to http.” Tried loging off and back on no dice, next thing I guess it to pick http and do a compleat shut down and try again. Not a big problem,just a little inoying. Well that is facebook. If not for tring to keep up with my family and frined back home in Ohio and Florida and all the other places I probly would deactivate the stupid thing and just for get about it, it is such and stupid wast of time,but it is useful sometimes.
Hopr profesor Guertun is feeling better, but this givs me more time to refine my mock up on my page. I think I have a pretty good idea for it , finding the time to do it will be the hard thing. I really don’t think I’m going to have time to finsh this blog even now.I have a load of laundry in the wash, one in the dryer and dinner on the stove. Then a new site modle with three other previous projects and to new conditions incoporated. Well I hav eto good dinner is calling.
well an other weekend is here and it has been a good one,could be better,but it will be in the morning.Been watching Harry Potter with my kids we are on year 5.I know that I bomed the html quiz, totally blanked on what html stands for, what the code for red text is, how to add a picture and a link. What a bone head. Most of my work done for my arch class , it is looking good hope it is right.Just have to tweek the thick wall conditions on the north and west elavations and the stair condition and crulation on the second floor. the library is coming along well and the third floor rest space is pretty much the way it needs to be,the second floor just a very imporant transition so I have to really nail it and have it complet the proper readings .Sp thinking about the theam of the last project “TIME” getting an idea together about what to do on this,just vomcerned that I will not be able to writ the code of my ideas after not doing so well on the quiz, not a very good test taker,but I didn’t expect to black out so completlly.Thing of a memory that I could tell in a time line fromat or maybe how the event has changed me or how I look at the world around me. Still not sure, but I will figure something out I always do. As I said we have been watching thr Harry Potter movies today right, well it is now 11:45 PM and my wonderful 15year old is Hell bent on watching them all today and just put number six in the blu ray. I’m givingit twenty minute and he is asleep on the living room floor, .
So got my comic book back and I have to fix it, dyslexa strikes again or maybe the eyes , either way it is fixed. Sorry professor, I’ll have the fixed one for you today in class,well as soon as Jerrid shows me how to burn it again. I can’t remember what he did last time(he is so good that he dose it really fast and I couldn’t keep up) and can not get the corrections to over write the comic that is on my cd right now. Ok so I’m a bone head sometimes.That is why I sit next to Tabby in class, I get lost she helps be get found. To cool. Not doing to bad with the html suff though. I get lost once i a while, but I go back,look at the code and I can figure out what I did worng sometimes and fix it. I have really supprized myself, I didn’t think that I would be able to write html at all. My hubby is amazed and impressed, and that is cool. My oldest kid says writting html sounds boring,but what dose he know he thinks high school is hard and his goal in life is chasing girls and eatting and hanging with the boys. Can’t wait till he gets into the air force, that will be funny.I digress, so after I’m done with this, I have study for our html test and put my money were my mouth is and get a great score on the test. It would be sooooo cool if we could use our notes. It rocks that we can use our own computer, it is a format that I’m use to and I think I would be lost on the MACs at school. I havn’t been to school to practice on them and I have my lap top with me all the time lots of pratice there. Well of to study. See you all at 5:30.
Well writing code last night in class was not as painful as I thought it would be. It was nice that I could use my computer rather than one of the schools. I have this one with me all the time,I can’t always get to school.Hope my comic live up to my expitations. I thought it was cool and fun. I was pleasently suprized how it came out.I thought is was really good, only proble was that I could not burn it myself. Thank you Gerred, the computer genius. I had not published it in html yet and then it went. So I thought this blog thing was going to be easy, because in past when I need to write a paper I have never had problem meeting the word count, as a matter of fact I has gotten in trouble for going way over. Not on this, I seem to get thing down in a fue words and can’t make the word count.I guess I could go on about my boys,hubby and my pets,but this is suppost to be about class right? And do you really want to hear about my over indulged 18 and 15 year old sons who’s favorite hobby is driving me crazier than the week before,if I brag about my wonderful husband you all will think I’m lieing(he is really awesome, he works so I can do my school thing unenterruped).So back to class, my hubby can’t belive that I actually worte code last night, he thinks it is easy( and it was last night, with me that won’t last),but the calls me computer chalenged as anyone in class would probly agree.So he thought it was amazing that I did it. Could not do it with out Tish.Thanks for the help you rock. Ok I have go build an other modle for ARCH2552, hopefully I do it right so I don’t get a “what’s this?” or the prof. dosen’t even look at it.Not sure which is worse. Questioning what I have built or acting like it is not even there, yikes!
Well got causgh up on the reading and got behind on the the blog.Inadment Alice was intresting and I think I’m going to keep up with thenext chapters that are to come.It sounds like life might justvget a little tangled for Alice. My body was a interesting “read”.It was reading with games so it kept my attention and I had to keep going just to see what was next. You,Me,I,still looking at that one kinda makes me dizzy,but that is not hard to do, I’m kinda ditzy sometimes. Pride,Pedjudice and Zombies,I enjoyed,but as dicusted in class was a little hard to follow due to the poor illustration. We did a little comairison to Pride and Predjudice and I will have to read that over summer break so have a better comparison .I prefer the novel the comics,but that is why I took this class to try to get a better understanding of comics and graphic novels.Comics tend to loose me if they are not well organized.The one where the man was going to the store for milk got me all turned around and I really never got a story line out of it. I kept wondering is this what he is thinking about as he walked to the store or are these thing he is seeing?Understanding Comics has shed some light ion comics for me, but I guess I’m lame. I still get turned around in comics and just prefer an old fashion book. My computer security programs are not allowing Comic Life to down load, it is reporting 2 security risks.It has been doing this for three days so I guess that I will have my hubby the coputer guru look at it so I can get the comic written and done still not sure what I’m doing and may need the 23rd extention.I’m sure it is some little step I’m missing it useally is when it comes to me and computers.
Ok I retrack my statements in class last night. I have been having a great deal of problems with the on line reading because the only inter net acces I had was through the school IPad. Not knocking the Apple lovers, but it was not the easiest thing I have ever used, it can be fun and I is cool that it is so small and portable,however it dosen’t do what I want it to. So any way I am re-reading our readings now that I have a computer that is no going to sleep faster than I read and it is not frusting and I am now enjoing them and not missing things by getting lost as to where I was when the IPad when to sleep. So it is back to work for now on a project that is due in the morning and I’ll write more later.
