- I think of social network as an extension that can help keep track of people that you do not speak to as much anymore.
- It does make sense to me as there is a limit to how much time you have to share with others and it can not be equivalent in all relations.
- Having that many “friends” is more along the line of showing how many acquaintances you have.
- Depending on how many close connections you have you will have exponentially more open opportunities through them and their connections.
- I would prefer to keep my personal number under 50 to make sure of the quality of relations.
- I do have more friends on social media than those I consider to be my friends but I do not keep up with most of them on social media. I have not had any notable advantage through these connections.
In making the social network graph it helped me realize the people I can go to in the event I need help or if I’m in search of coming into contact with someone. For the same reason I had made an account on a website called LinkedIn for professional connections only that may help with career opportunities. The difficulty of this was that I do not use social media so it is definitely harder to imagine what my outer group of contacts is but everyone I do care for I make sure to have their numbers.
Sending an ACP is similar to a Snapchat in the sense that it shows small glimpses of the sender’s life, just as a normal picture does. The difference would be the effort that the sender must’ve put in to send the package to the recipient as well as the exclusiveness to the recipient. Ephemera have special meanings to people as a memento to the owners and can have more sentimental value than anything else. Images that are personal will hold more value between those that share the connection than the public art works in museums shown to everyone. An ACP will show that the sender wanted to share something with the recipient and had premeditated the action while a snapchat can be short and random.
The pieces I put in my ACP include some images that were done in this class as a sort of example of what work I have done. I also included an invitation I received to have my first credit card to show a small glimpse of my growth in responsibilities. The card shows a cheat sheet I used for studying toward a math exam and represents my work as a student going to college. The silly Deadpool figure is to show my childish hobbies and likes that I still have as I grow. The recipient will be an older cousin of mine in Nebraska that has not seen me since I was a little kid.
I would have to say I enjoyed the scenery at the Japanese Garden. I am not a master at drawing but nonetheless I was happy with my sketches. Some of the more complicated views I had to shorten or do my best in filling in space with what could look natural. When I was drawing the statue I drew it shorter to make it simpler for myself but the image still is recognizable to the original. I am glad with the fact that I was able to get past the urge of constantly erasing and trying to make the drawing better. When drawing the pipe over long grass I could not even begin to replicate the grass below. I had to draw the grass in a way that I felt would still fit the image and to my own abilities.
Tina is going for a degree in biochemistry and has considered her CHEM 111B class to be her favorite class so far. She lives in Long Beach and stays with her parents. If she had a child whom wanted to pursue the arts then she would let them live their dreams for them to be happy. Tina prefers oil canvas paintings because of Vincent Van Gogh’s painting of The Starry Night. Her favorite food is french fries which is fair because no matter what you are doing fries are appetizing. She has no specific favorite color as it consistently changes.
