Goals (Round 2)

I definitely think I’ve been quite on track with my goals, which is a pat on the back for me. I feel like I’m learning about the different modes of storytelling and fighting discomfort over not understanding programs, and actually learning from trial and error and tutorials! I think I’m doing really well!

Some revised goals I want to have is that I want to be able to spend a lot more time on these programs and these thoughts. I’ve been doing okay at that, because when I work on things for this class, I hyperfocus on them, but I want to be able to learn things on my own without tutorials. I do a little bit now, but I mostly end up looking it up. A lot of learning is just playing around and trying different things and seeing what works and what doesn’t work, so I want to just play around with these programs and see what happens and what I can create.

I’ve actually been having a lot of fun and have been taking the assignments as ways to be creative and tell stories in my own way but with a guide to look back on, which I think is what has made this not as stressful as I thought it was in the past. I really like how a lot of the assignments aren’t strict on rules or what to do exactly: you make of it what you can with the given prompts or media.

One last thing, I’ve definitely become more comfortable with AI. Talking to Dr. Oblivion is so funny to me, I just love when he gets sentimental (such a change from his usual snarky attitude). He can be my friend now, but he will still be being side eyed for a while. Other AI is still iffy with me, but I’m working on it slowly to understand its limits and my own limits, and that’s fun.
