What did I learn in graphic design?   Hmmm I learned quite a bit, from how to trace a room on the computer to photoshopphing myself into a picture.  This was one of my most enjoyed classes this year.  Mrs. Davis always worked with us when we had a problem and explained how to do each lesson enthusiastically.  I am glad that I was signed up for Graphic Design

Could I use the information I was taught in this class  in my future?  One word, yes.  This was a very valuable learning tool in my education if I ever need to make a desin logo or spice up a picture I know how to do that now thanks to this class.  I’m sure in the future all of my fellow co-workers will be quite jealous of my accesive knowledge of graphic design information.

Not only was this class very educational I had the privelege of sitting next to some of the nicest, and most helpful people I have ever met at this high school.  Whenever I missed a day of class or didn’t understand a lesson not only would my teacher help me with anything I needed help with but my neighbors would as well.

I thouroughly enjoyed this class and I hope to be able to take Web Page design next year and learn more about the computers and its very interesting tricks.   From moving items backwards and foward with the click of a button to being able to hide an object the computer is a very interesting and very factual object.

In conclusion next year I hope and pray I get a class like this again.  The things I learned in this class will remain with me always I am proud to say that I took graphic design and that I learned all of the things that I did learn. Next year will be very rememerable if I am in web page design just like this year was.


{May 8, 2009}   Rap. Negative or positive?


“Now hush little baby, don’t you cry. Everything’s gonna be alright. Stiffen that upperlip up little lady, i told ya
Daddy’s here to hold ya through the night. I know mommy’s not here right now and we don’t know why
We feel how we feel inside. It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby. But i promise momma’s gon’ be alright”  These are the lyrics are from the song Mocking Bird by Eminem, yes this song is a rap song.  But in my opinion instead of having a negative connotation this song is somewhat inspirational to me, its basically a dad telling is daughter to hold her head up and that she is going to get through the bad times.

Now don’t get me wrong, no all rap songs are inspirational, they talk about sex, money, drugs.  Teenagers are narrow minded and if we hear the same thing over and over again eventually we’ll start to believe “hey it can’t be too bad, Lil Wayne sings about it, society repeats it constantly it can’t be THAT bad.”   After we start to believe its not that bad, we start to take part in it.  Teens having sex without mentally preparing themselves for the reality that comes afterwards, kids smoking pot without actually thinking about the consiquenecs of those actions, and teenagers doing anything and everything they can do to get money no matter what it takes.  SOME teenagers have this reaction to rap music. SOME don’t.

Think about this though, in every movie that has been rated over the PG level in the past 20 years has been FILLED with sex, drugs, violence and greed.   Tv channels such as E! bring in most of their ratings by talking about sex scandals and drug abuse.  These things that rappers fill their lyrics with are the exact thing society has already filled our minds with.  So should we really blame the rappers and the rap music?

I for one am going to keep listening to rappers such as T-I and Eminem, I don’t belive its the rappers that have had a negative influence on society but society has had a negative influence on itself.  Until they take all the “negativity” out of Hollywood I’m going to keep on listening to “that” kind of music.
