If you wonder what GG means, it’s just a gamer way to say goodbye
Instead of a reflection, it is more like a class review. OK here it goes. This is much hard to write a reflection blog post than writing 6 more regular posts. (Not that I will write 6 more instead, but for the sake of hyperbole) Let us face it; it is so much hard to put all the thoughts together in an orderly and constructive way so that you guys would be too painful to read mine. And then, it is a bit embarrassing to pour my heart out to talk about my reflection on this class. So this might get cringy and cliché and I’m not responsible for that.
YEAH, this ain’t your normal BC class, the plus side: there are no midterms, no finals, no papers. And the downside… there is no downside. NO MIDTERMS, NO FINALS, what more do I want? Yet greedy me. and I just want to officially apologize to you, Professor Kane @geraldckane, for thinking about dropping the class at the first place.
Twitting, I was never a fan of social media before (like many of us in this class at the beginning). Not on the platform very often, nor posting, creating content. Twitting was a challenge that I did not want to take. However, Twitting weekly really creates this habit in me and pushes me following news, technology, trends that are happening in the world today. Honestly, rarely do I read newspapers, even online news. Cutting off social media, I have, sort of, lived in my little own space, focusing the world around me, topics that interested me, people that are closed to me. However, the task to keep engaging people on Twitter really brought me close to many interesting topics, ideas, information floating around the world. I was able to tweet about the phenomena growing of Fortnite, hear about the news on driverless cars and many more.
Another thing, the blog post. To be honest, I have written blogs in the past on the topic of tennis. Somehow, I forgot why I stopped. As many people felt about the burden of writing blog posts, I was worried that I could not come up with different topics to write blog posts, nor write good content on a weekly basis. But, I get the chance to dedicate all my blog posts around the topic of gaming. And whoa, blogging just so much more fun than I thought would be. After all this, I’m even considering applying for a content creating jobs on the industry of gaming. Like a wise man once said, “passion is your best teacher.” The class really provides me with an environment to do something I am really passionate about for my class work.
Lastly, thank you for the great weekly discussion. Unfortunately, being an introvert person, rarely do I speak up in class. But I love the discussion in this class throughout the entire semester. The Grad-Undergrad class setting is really great from my perspective that Grad students could really offer insights and different perspectives that are both interesting and inspiring to me. I really love to hear about those who have been through the life in a real working field. On the one hand, I really appreciate that grad-students often give out practical advice on how the issues should be treated, on the other hand, I could also see what I lack when approaching a new topic.
Farewell, IS6621. It’s been a great ride.
