It has come to the end of my blogging assignment for COM125 this semester. This, hereby would be my last post!
For somebody very keen in Journalism and expressing my opinions of things around me, I surprisingly have never blogged before this! I always wanted to do it, always told myself I should start a blog soon.
I intended my blog to be about Fashion, Beauty and General stuff, unlike blogs that are of personal thoughts. My dream was to explore the different kinds of fashion from all over the world and share them with people! I always tell myself, “next week!” or “after I am done with redecorating my room” or some kind of excuse. I have all this photos of fashion from all the places i have traveled to, waiting to be put up too.. But I never got to doing it! ): However… this blogging has pushed me to start my long time dream of blogging soon as it has resurfaced my desire! Thank You! 😀
I always wondered “where did people get the time to blog? I cant even get a decent 8 hours of sleep!!”. But also, I was always in awe of my friends who had blogs and updated them every week or so, and have the most incredible posts. Posts were insightful, funny and even sometimes a little saddening when they paint a picture of something terrible that happened to them (which always made me text or call them immediately after reading, to check on their welfare!).
Ok, so after all that rambling, this is how i felt when i came to know that i had to do blogging for COM125…
I think like many other students, I was very excited to start blogging. Though it wasn’t a topic of my choice, the whole idea of blogging was rather intriguing. Then it came to the mid of the semester, work starting piling up, deadlines were nearing and I felt 24 hours was just not enough! That is when blogging became a little troublesome.. ):
Nevertheless, I must say, blogging coupled with the researches I had to do for my blogs, and reading other students’ blogs has broaden my perspectives of the Internet. But definitely the honor of making me realize how awesome the Internet is goes to the course as a whole!
COM125 has taught me thinks that made my mind boggle and sometimes a little disturbed too.
Why disturbed you may ask? Well, it is because of the wide range of things the Internet and the “Internet of Things” can do. It has put the concept of multi-faceted to a whole new level. Augmented reality is one thing that still boggles my mind! About how amazing and convenient it is, but also makes me wonder, do we really need all these vast enhancements of technology at one go? Wouldn’t it, just like every other inventions, bring some disadvantages to the society and even an individual, which in the first place, it can do without? Oh wells! The human brain should never be idle, and thus such inventions and creations should always be welcomed, of course with the well-being of the society, economy and individual in mind.
Internet plays a huge role in all our lives, thus deserves to be known and explored better. If it was not for this module, I probably would not have learnt about Google Glass, the Incredibox (might seem useless, but is a lot of fun creating beatbox music), and even would have been clueless about cloud computing. Cloud computing is something that I first came across when i was updating my iPhone to the newest iOS a few months (or was it years??) ago. I could not be bothered with reading the details and instructions of cloud computing that was provided by Apple, at that time. Hence i disabled cloud computing in my iPhone and computer. However, after learning more in depth about it in class made me realize how much simpler cloud computing would have made my life if i had just knew what it was back then! The videos shown about cloud computing were of great help in making me understand the concept.
Well, its never too late to learn right? (;
As a whole, COM125 has been an eye-opening course. Things that I learnt, will be taken with me all the way! (:
