Extra Credit Madness! || Opinions on Assignments

Lots of variety is key to keeping it interesting...

Readings, storytelling, comments, projects, feedback, oh my! There's no shortage of variety when it comes to the different types of assignments for this class. And that's not even including all the different types of extra credit!

As always, I look forward to readings, especially when the readings are stories, myths, or legends that are entertaining and enjoyable in their own rights. The storytelling assignments also look very interesting. I wouldn't credit myself as that good of a creative writer, but I'm excited to try my hand at retelling the stories I enjoy. To that end, I will probably be excited to receive the comments and feedback from my fellow students that may help to grow my abilities in writing and storytelling.

Aside from the main assignments, we also have the myriad collection of extra credit assignments available to us. Looking at the list, I think that Tech Tips, Wikipedia Trails, and Microfictions look like to be the most fun or interesting to me. I like the idea of learning some more about how to code or format my blog to add to the functionality or aesthetics. I've also done one or two "Wikipedia Trails" or things similar to that in the past and they're always lots of fun. Microfictions just sounds like an intriguing idea to experiment and play around with. The idea of six word story feels both crazy and intriguing at the same time.

  1. I'm also looking forward to the myriad of assignment types for this class! There's just so much variety each week, and the extra credit assignments are especially interesting. I've enjoyed completing the extra commenting assignments because I get to learn more about other people in the class along with their personal experiences. I think the variety of assignments for this class will keep things interesting for me, especially since this is my last semester, and I've already mentally clocked out!

Hobbies, Hopes, and... I'm Out of H Words || An Introduction

Everyone keeps telling me to change my major... Welcome to the blog! My name is Rhys and I am a senior Psychology major! When I'm not scrambling to complete my degree, I work as a 3D printing student specialist for OU Libraries and as a lab assistant for the OU Visual Neuroscience Laboratory.  I'm looking forward to graduating this summer after a study abroad trip to Scotland. 
When I'm not at work or school, I spend my time entertaining a variety of hobbies including programming, circuit building, 3D art, animation, and design, 3D printing, video production, visual effects, and cooking! I spend quite a lot of time working on all of these things, which has led to a running joke among my family and friends that I declared the wrong major.  3D World Animation
I'm always looking to learn new skills. I honestly love learning and school. In fact, I plan on pursuing a career in academia as a psychology researcher. Essentially, I plan on never leaving school! After graduation…

Home Away from Home || Some of My Favorite Places to Be

Seem a little random don't they? Well if I had to choose some of my favorite places, I would have to choose one that was an amazing travel destination and two that are like my homes away from home.
The amazing travel destination would be the island of Iraklia in Greece! Quite a place to spend a 20th birthday.

The next place is actually oddly specific. Myers Hall at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA holds many fond memories for me and will always feel like a second home, even though it has been many years since I've been there.

The last place that feels like a home away from home to me is Santa Fe, New Mexico. My parents are originally from Santa Fe and Albuquerque and we visit constantly. In fact, as of the time I am writing this, we plan on visiting again in just a little over a week.
