Reflection

  1.  In class we watched a video about a little boy who was being bullied.
  2. This video makes me very upset that people around the world are being bullied and most of the time the witnesses don't speak up when it's such a simple thing to do.
  3. I do not appear online at all, instead there are a lot of random women.
  4. I think people don't really have any perception of me because they can't find me. They may think I am anti-social. The truth is that I never use my full name on the internet.
  5. The goal of internet trolls is to disturb the peace and get negative attention.
  6. The positive results of online anonymity are that people will not be able to see any bad things about you online, the negative results are that you may not learn from your mistakes if you're never caught.

Quarter 1 Senior Art

This quarter in senior art has been extremely fun. I am happy to say that I look forward to this class on days when I have it. Senior art is an outlet to let go of all my stress, and focus on creating something nice. We learn how to mix colors for different shades, to blend and create shadows, and we learn this independently, so it feeds out drive. 
This quarter we had multiple assignments: ceiling tile, drawing/painting, charcoal still life, jack-o-lantern/ bats, and a self portrait. We could do these projects at any time, as long as it was done by the end of the quarter. I started with the ceiling tile, then self portrait, jack-o-lantern, still life, then painting.I had two favorite pieces.  
My first favorite piece is my ceiling tile. In my tile, I painted the Drake Nothing Was The Same album cover on it. I worked the longest on this project, because it was hard for me to mix the skin, and there was a lot of blending with this painting. It took me about a month to finish it, and even though it is not perfect, it am very proud of the effort I put into this project. 
My second favorite piece is my jack-o-lantern. I did this project on the eve of Halloween with my six year old cousin. It was a fun bonding experience, and I think that I made my most interesting, and intricate pumpkin of my life so far. I decided to carve a big pumpkin eating a smaller pumpkin. When hanging out candy, a kid old me it was a pac man eating another pac man. 

Who Am I Online?- Christina Santana


In class today we watched a video about the affects of bullying before and after it is prevented. Our class activity was pairing up with someone, and looking up their name on Google to see what we would find. What the video brought to mind for me was the realization on how common bullying can be for some people.  Online I am a tiny clothes wearing Hispanic dancer. I do not think people perceive me well based on this appearance because it is not professional. The goal of internet trolls is to bring down other for their personal enjoyment. In my opinion I think there are only cons to online anonymity useless someone is using it to post an honest review on a product, on food, etc.

  1. Today in class we watched the "I Am A Witness" video about bullying and how to help prevent by clicking the eye. 
  2. The video bring many things to my mind, for example, how bad people's feelings get hurt and how bullying can mostly be worse on the internet, especially when the bully is anonymous.
  3. When my name is searched online many school websites are found. Especially my middle school awards I have received for my science fair. So, online I am a student, which is correct. 
  4. Based on who I am online, people probably see me as hardworking and scientific. 
  5. The goal that internet trolls have are to bully someone online without getting caught. They are most likely to be anonymous, giving them more of a purpose to have fun and torture someone without being found. They mainly expose people and mess with their feelings for their own pleasure. 
  6. A positive thing about anonymity is you do not know who they are which makes things less hurtful, in a way because, if you find out who this online bully is, your feelings will be crushed and you'll have a hard time actually believing that person would do such a thing. A negative thing about anonymity is it will be harder to report them because they have a hidden identity online. 

Reflection

1. A video about a kid being bullied. It is an interactive video. That you can change the interactive video by interacting to make the situation better.

2. That it is horrible and can cause people to hurt themselves.

3. I'm not very social and don't have a huge life an the internet. 

4. That i'm not up with the trends.

5. To make fun of other people's suffering.

6. That people won't know who said the gossip but, it can hurt the people that the anonymous person are talking about.

Reflection

We watched the i am a witness video in class. The video was to show that you should always keep an eye out for bullying. You are just as bad as the bully if you dont help because no one deserves to be bullied. The eye emoji helps make situations better so always press the eye. The video makes me think that bullies on hurt people because they have been hurt themselves so they act out. I appear online as a teenager who has been through a lot even though i have only one picture of myself . I believe when people see me online they think im a good kid which i am and im just trying to find myself. Internet trolls purposely comment things to make you upset. Some positve things about online anonymity is that you can say what you want and ¨get away with it¨. A negative thing about it is that no one is actually anonymous online there is always a way to find you.

Q1 Art Slideshow

My experience with art is very vague. I usually don’t have a particular reason to draw what I draw. So with that in mind, as an expression of myself, I like to keep things simple most of the time.

Everything you will see in this slide-show was drawn either with simply a pencil or a brush. There’s no special techniques that need to be known, my artist-progress if very much just drawing whatever comes to mind, and if that usually doesn’t require anything too complex.

None of this means I don’t think much of my art. The problem is simply that I’m not very good at it, which means my ability to bring what I draw to life is severely limited.  Everything you will see in this slideshow is best, more sincere effort, and even if it doesn’t look like it, I put a lot of myself into almost all of these works, one way or another. It’s why many of them are so vague, they only mean something to me. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, I haven’t decided yet.

Who am I online

1. The video that we watched in class was about a boy who was being bullied in school and cyber bullied at home. In this video we had to click the Eye (I am a witness) to help the boy.

2. Bullying should be stopped because if it isn’t it only gets worse. 

3. When I search my name nothing comes up.

4. Nothing comes up.

5. Their goal is to bother people and hurt their feelings because they think it’s funny.

6. Positive results are that you can say whatever you want. Negative is that you think you can get away with it, and that you can’t be tracked but you can.

Why is liking the Japanese culture such a problem?

Everyone gets made fun of for something, even if that something is precious. You can't please everyone because someone will always have a problem with what you do. The Japanese culture interests me. I don't understand why people have a problem with my taste, it has nothing to do with them.I don’t owe anyone an explanation as to why I love the Japanese culture. Anyone can make fun of me as much as they wish, but my love for the culture will never change.

Ever since people in middle school found out I had a thing for the Japanese culture, I've been teased for it. Non-anime lovers somehow found out about the word weeaboo, and started labeling me as such. That...is not a good thing.  A weeaboo is a person who has a serious mental condition. They think they are characters in an anime living in japan, etc.This term was coined  in Japan to make fun of manga and anime lovers. It is considered to be an insult. Weeaboos in Japan are highly frowned upon. In the past, if you were considered a weeaboo, you were even disowned!

All that being said, I think it’s safe to say that I am NOT a weeaboo. I am simply a big fan of the japanese culture, and strive to immerse myself in the language. One day I hope to become fluent in Japanese. One day, I hope to learn the language, and become fluent in it. I also want my house to be rich in cultural artifacts and encourage  my children to  explore cultures other than their own.

They say high school can be a pain.  This past summer, a girl who goes to school with me went to the same girl scout camp. We are in her tent reading a letter that her boyfriend sent her.  At some point during our letter reading, she read out loud, “Oh yeah, tell your weeb friend I said hi.”

I look at her puzzled. “What? Who's he talking about?”

She smiled at me and said, “Yeah he knows that you like anime, but he couldn't remember your name.”

I folded my arms with a curious expression and said “Well, does he even know what a weeb is? Do you? That's totally not what it means.”

She made a defensive and worried face. “Well yeah I know a weeb is suppose to be a bad thing, but you do love anime a lot, not that there's anything wrong with that,” she said.

“According to the Japanese it's an insult!” My face become flushed from anger.“It’s a big deal to people like me. It’s an insult in Japan. It means I’m mental and think that I live in an anime world. I’m not that crazy, or am I?” I smirk to try and play off my anger and she playfully smacks me.

I’ve had many experiences with this, and it’s the same thing over and over again. People really don’t know the meaning of the word, and how hurtful it can be. It’s very hard sometimes telling people I am in to the Japanese culture. If someone brings it up I will admit to liking it, but I will never bring it up on my own. Being weighed down by the insult, I am too shy to admit my love for the culture. My friends in middle school didn't know I liked anime and manga until years after I met them . I've known my best friend for 5 years, and she didn't find out till last year. It’s a shame that insults hide people. I feel like I need to lock my thoughts up in a cage and throw them in a dark room so nobody can find them.

The thing you love to do is personal to you and no one can come between that. I love anime and manga because it makes me happy. It saved me from being alone when I had nobody to stand by me. It will always be my savior, and I will never stop loving it. The Japanese culture will always stay in my heart. Don’t let anyone make you feel small because of your interests. At the end of the day it’s your happiness that matters, not what other people think.

Who Am I Online? Ashley De La Cruz

In class, we watched a video about bullying. There was a little boy that was getting bullied before school, during school, and after school. There was an eye icon that appeared during some parts of the video. If you clicked on the eye, then something would prevent the little boy from getting bullied. For example, after school, the boy was walking home but he had a sign on his back. The sign said, "kick me", if you clicked the eye icon, then the bullies walking behind him would come up and take the sign off and be nice to him. However, if you didn't click on the eye, then the bullies would come up to him and kick him, like the sign said. When I think of bullying, I often think about others not doing anything to prevent bullying. I also often think about suicides, because bullying is often what leads to someone deciding to take their life away. Online, I appear to be a transgender model, even though I am not. There are also Facebook profiles from people named Ashley De La Cruz, which aren't mine, because I don't have a Facebook. I think if someone didn't know who I was, and they decided to look me up online, they might think that I am a transgender model, but I doubt it because I don't model. The goal of an internet troll is to create drama by making up false statements or accusations, in order to stir up controversy on someone. Something positive about online anonymity is that you can talk about something personal, like bullying issues, physical abuse issues, or any other thing, without using your real identity, so that it doesn't affect your daily life. Something negative about online anonymity is that if someone is being rude, disrespectful, or inappropriate towards someone else, you won't know who the person is because they are anonymous.

Art Q1 Slide show

Ceiling tile - 
My passion is soccer and I wanted to reflect upon soccer itself.  My favorite soccer player is Mesut Özil.  I reference him in the entirety of my picture.  The cleats have the first letter of his last name and the ball has his entire name.  SLA Boys soccer had such a good year, moving up to A division.  I had to make a ceiling tile that reflected soccer and the soccer player I look up to.

Choose my own drawling - 
I chose to draw very basic things.  When I was younger I had art classes and during those art class I drew basic objects and I would shade it after.  For this drawing I drew an apple and I shaded it.  I take pride in the skills that I have acquired from that art class.  

Pumpkin - 
For the pumpkin I wanted to something different than carving a pumpkin and different than just drawing your most basic pumpkin.  I wanted to draw a pumpkin mixed with a plant.  My pumpkin has all the features of a scary pumpkin, but also has roots coming out of it.  

Self Portrait - 
My self portrait does not look exactly like me and that is because I drew me in the future.  I have the glasses and the facial hair.  But I look a lot older and more sophisticated.  I envision that I am about 2 to 3 years through college and I am getting ready to be on my  own.
