I’d like to dedicate this final blog post to showing my gratitude for having the chance to be apart of this class. I remember when signing up for creative writing and seeing all sections fill up before my eyes, I was losing hope. After emailing prof. Bielecki asking for a special permissions number my hope was returned after hearing that there will be room for me come fall!
When first entering the classroom I had absolutely no idea what I was in store for. In all honesty I assumed it would be more like an expos class where we write 8 page long papers about not so interesting topics to say the least. When I recieved the syllabus I was stunned and could hardly believe my eyes. We were going to be working on blogs all semester long! No lengthy papers but instead blog posts on interesting and inspiring topics! It was a dream come true.
This class has taught me so much in the past 3 months and I can’t be more grateful. I was always interested in using iMovie so the first project allowed me to explore the program at a slow pace and eventually it became second nature to me. I now use iMovie whenever I can when creating projects for other classes and sometimes just for fun. Audacity was another useful program that I’m glad to have encountered seeing that it is an extremely helpful tool when creating podcasts – something I’ve also wanted to do in the past.
The last project, the blog final, as you can probably already tell from my previous posts, was something I was looking forward to the most. Even though I experienced some technical difficulties, I was guided step by step how to fix the problem and now i’m hoping for the best. The staff, as well as prof. Bielecki at the writing center are such a talented group of people and I just want to personally thank them for everything they’ve done.
I believe my writing skills have significantly increased over the past few months and I developed a writing style that I believe suits me well. Besides that, I got to meet all of you… you wonderful and talented bunch of peers who I can sadly say I will genuinely miss. I think our class was extremely productive and we worked well together. The atmosphere was always so pleasent and I cant thank all of you enough for that. It’s always such a bummer to have to roll out of bed to go to a class where no one is interested and no one cares.
I think we all did a great job this semester and I look forward to reading all of your final blogs! I hope we can all stay in touch.
Have a good rest of your semester everyone and good luck on final exams!
