These past two weeks have been absolutely HELLISH for all of us in my course. Why? Because it's freakin project-handling time.6 projects
to hand in in 2 weeks. Do the math, how the hell can we even sleep.WE DIDN'T.
Through these two weeks, I have accumulated enough confidence and experience to determine what I'm good at and what I'm horrible at. We have made several worthy applications for our projects' sake, we can even sell them if we want. They are all group projects too. We have successfully made:
1. A montage of how to reduce traffic jams
2. Animating graphical educational application relating to tetracycline and how it enters and interacts with the human DNA
3. An interactive story-telling application
4. Designing a freaking computer lab based on its topology, router, servers and all the data traffic stuff.
And others that are unworthy to mention.
While finishing all those headaches, I realized that I kept being stationed in the same department, for my groupmates had deemed me suitable for specific fields. Namely:
- all the graphics
- sound effects
- background music
Graphics, especially, holy prinny, my photoshop is a life-saver, I have never drawn so much in 2 weeks, there are no words to describe the state of my drawing hand right now.
They also, if they could, would never allow me in the arts of
- information gathering
- presenting ideas
Huh. I wonder if I'm that useless if they don't even want me to try those.
Thanks to those two weeks, I have learned A LOT, with experiences I achieved that is worth a semester packed in 2 weeks, and we all fainted on Friday when it all finally ended. Yes.
Due to my newly discovered strong points, I decided to pursue in these fields so I have SOMETHING that I'm an "expert" in. Of course, I'll try to touch on the things I'm so badly at, but not as intensely as to how I'm going to pursue in taming Photoshop and VirtualDJ.
Its nice to know what I'm good at, it instills this sort of confidence in me that I can definitely do it. As long as you provide me with the damn deadline
, thank you.
