Welcome to my reflections website! As our first unit back at Freestyle, we hit the ground running. In this website you’ll find my personal essay and lyrical essay which we wrote in English. In Digital Media we created a perspective video and in design a diptych. My overall goal was to build on the skills that I had honed the year before. I was especially furthering my photography skills.
Now that I’m a senior, college applications are a constant pressure. Luckily, in English our first project was to write a personal essay similar to ones we’d use in our applications. I had a really hard time figuring out what I wanted to write for my essay, but brainstorming with other really helped me pick a topic. In Digital Media we were asked to write a two minute essay about anything we wanted. I wrote about something that I have noticed reaccuringly throughout my life. The essay details the corruption of the holiday season.
Another project that we did in Digital Media was our "Things I've Learned So Far" video. We were asked in English to think of words of wisdom that spoke to us. In AfterEffects we then made a video with music, audio that we had recorded, and text of these phrases. The end product is something like a slideshow of the greatest advice I've received.
