Felt like such a long day today >.<
I had to meet up with my group again, to research more for our presentation. I feel so overloaded with the work we’ve all had to do. We’ve had to create a Facebook group just so we don’t have to meet up 24/7 and we can just write what research we’ve done. So much easier. We had to go to our teacher and like show what we’ve done already; feel much more relieved when we went to see him because he actually helped us along with the presentation. I was with my group from about 11.30am until like, 2ish.
We’re studying Marshal McLuhan, who came up with the phrase ‘the medium is the message‘ which basically means that the medium should be more focused on rather than the content. For example, with a reality show like X Factor , viewers are more interested in the format of the show rather than the content. It makes it easier for the viewer to just passively consume what’s on the TV because they don’t even have to think about what’s going on because they know what to expect. Which is quite true; I definitely know what to expect when I watch X Factor – the judges always arguing, X Factor being a fix, the audience always booing. Sigh.
I didn’t have any lectures today because my teacher’s dad is in hospital, and so he’s by his bedside. It will probably resume as normal by next week, though. I started my Photoshop class, today. It was actually pretty fun. We learnt about curves and levels. I know about Photoshop already and I use it quite frequently but this is actually quite helpful. I mean, tutorials are great but having a teacher teaching it to you – especially in a handson way, in which we use Macs 😀 – is even better.
He said that it’ll get harder as we go during the module. It lasts 10 weeks but I think I’m going to have much fun on this module – and my friend is on it as well, so that’s even doubly great.
Day 7: If you were stranded on an Island, who would be with you and which limited 10 items would you two have?
Oh my, that is quite hard. I’d probably be with Rob or Mutay – it depends on what the situation ends up like. Or I could be stranded with David Tennant. 10 items to have is quite hard because you gotta think about what would even work on an island. I mean, you could probably your phone. Maybe you can order pizza. HAA (yum) Probably have a bed or sleeping bag – gotta be comfortable when you sleep. A knife – so I could chop any bananas or fruits if there were any on the island. Oh my, my brain has actually stopped working. This is a difficult question. OH, clothes and washing stuff, obviously. (peace)
Rob keeps going on about hot pants ^o^ His trousers keep falling down, LOL.
- What are you learning in school?
- Is your work hard?
- Who would want to be stranded with?
