How to find your dream in the midst of influence

How to stick with your dream in the midst influence

 

“What career do you want to pursue?” “How much do you make?” “Is it a career abroad?”

These questions are still rumbling through my head like those electric mosquito electrocution tools.

When I was 6 years old, “You have to be careful when you play, it can leave scars and marks. With your appearance and face, you can surely be a handsome model or a famous actor.”, said my father as he inspects my body to see if there is any wound that can potentially leave scars to his beloved and handsome to-be actor.

 

When I was 8 years old, I remember vaguely that my mom told me enthusiastically “You gotta be a skillful doctor, dear”, she was quite envied of the neighbor’s son, who was recently hired as a doctor abroad.

“My nephew will surely become a successful businessman.” said my uncle.

“Hey stop wasting your time, start to code. You can certainly be a programmer” said my brother as he was immersed in his video game.

 

While my relatives keep throwing career path that can be turned into inspiration, whereas some other suggestions make the whole situation even create turbulence in my head; you might also have no inspiration at all. If are you are lost in this labyrinth and pondering about which path you will proceed, here is a pen that will enlighten thee, erase your past and rewrite your star.

 

Step 1: Find your passion

   Just like how it sounds, learn what do you love. Your star can always shine brightly as others but you just have to find the right galaxy. To find your passion, the following questions will be helpful :

       What do you find beautiful? But in some cases, what do you find fun?

       What kind of person are you? What fit you?

       Are you a free spirit? Or are a person who prefers working with someone leading you?

 

Step 2: Explore

   Explore. Try to find other professions that you might like more. There is no wrong or right if you just take the opportunity to explore and find your fated passion. The reason explores after knowing what your initial passion, is the world is changing drastically every day. You as a teenager might just get hyped by the flow of your peers. So get to know what that career is and how it works.

Tips: Don’t take what restrain your interest into account.

 

Step 3: Decision

Make your career choice. To help you decide what your future would be, make interviews – ask elders, what makes them do that career? Do they meet their expectations?

Ask them to your satisfaction, but don’t let negativity affects what you love.

And pick an occupation that satisfies you most based on all information.

 

Step 4: Propose

   Fear no criticism. Tell your parents or friends what you love to do, while you are at it, convince them benefits and try elaborate more about your feeling toward your career choice. In any case, they are not convinced, pull out your research; show them evidence. If they still won’t support your ideas, you just have work harder those with their parents covering them. Never give up.  

       

 

Round 5 – Low poly and glitch pictures

Round 5 of our multimedia/technology is the most extravagant to me. This round, unlike any other round, we were given a three weeks project that student has the option to independently do any project that is associated with media using tools like Adobe.

I chose to learn how to make a low poly picture and a glitch photo using adobe illustrator and photoshop. Adobe Photoshop is possibly known to every great professional photographer and graphic designer, it has great tools that are frequently used for resizing, crop, replace, visual effects and correct the color of a digital photo. Illustrator is another one of the Adobe products. It is developed alongside adobe photoshop as a complementary, it provides more tools for drawing and illustration on a digital picture. It is used for logos, vector graphics, and cartoons.

I chose to do this as an individual, so I got no one to help. But it seems like the lady luck are attracted to me, I chose really easy projects that are to be found anywhere on youtube and any other media platform. Although the instructions are informative with information graphics, I still face some problems. I need to maintain full focus on both the video and practicing at the same time, I usually missed some steps. I have to do the whole project again in case of forgetting the procedures.

This glitched Jimin, one of my favorite K-pop idols.

Nevertheless, I still enjoy doing this adobe project because they help opens new possibilities.

Python Dictionary

Multimedia –  What is dictionary? When you search on google about dictionary generally, it says

a book or electronic resource that lists the words of a language (typically in alphabetical order) and gives their meaning, or gives the equivalent words in a different language, often also providing information about pronunciation, origin, and usage.”

 

It is the same or connect in some way hence it is called ‘python dictionaries’ it only matters on how you look at it.

 

Just like in the definition Python dictionaries are just like lists but not so much. Python are used in curly bracket, they are unordered and changeable, and, there is no duplicate items allows.

 

For examples :

thisdictionary = {

 “Occupation”: “Doctor”,

 “Age”: “18”,

 “Year of birth”: 2001

}

Live to suffer

Life is towering

Scraping the sky.

When it reached its climax,

It blossoms and withers.

 

Life is a line

An art that continues with no eraser

Destiny is in your hand;

But the past leaves scars and marks.

 

Life is droplets of water

Weak and pure, but

Animated dribble can

Cut through rocks.

 

Life is a maze.

Terrifying blood crave wolf and

Greedy gold swallowing boar,

Are your neighbors.

 

Within Her Grief

 

Droplets of acid within tears.

Venomous viper are

Ready to strike in the dark and silent.

While expressing her language;

Jealous, envy, hate, of

Danger and hostility within her grief.

Inspire by Voltaire, “Tears are silent language of grief”. Golden Shovel form.

I Am From – Round 3

I am from boat and net

from stinky prahok and fishy p’ork

I am from the beautiful black wood wall

wind waving through, smells like champa of the ancient angkor

I am from the green young banana tree ,

The gigantic bayan  

whose long messy hair I remember

as if they were from horror movies.

I’m from old smoking pipe and hundred year mysterious book

from my grandfather broken abacus and my grandma black wooden walking stick

I’m from education and religion and

from Chinese-Cambodian whose skin can blend with the night

I’m from righteous and respect  and “Tok tok pen’g bom ponk”

I’m from Buddhism and taoism

I’m from the port of the Chams and minced pork with p’ork

From my grandma lies to the “Samak Met”,

the blacket she gave me when she left  The hole that was drilled when I was young, the black-white film, the photos that covered in dusk and her smile in my head.

Python

Multimedia- Python is a programming language that is commonly used for developing desktop and web applications. Moreover, Python is designed with the feature to assist with the process of data analysis and visualization. Python is found to use for web programmings like Django, Zope, Google App Engine, and much more. In the same way, they are also used in desktop application such as Blender 3D and even for pygames.

During Multimedia/Technology class is in process of learning rules and the basic form of Python such as :

If statement-

a = 33

b = 200

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

 

Elif statement-

a = 33

b = 33

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

elif a == b:

 print(“a and b are equal”)

 

Else statement-

a = 200

b = 33

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

else:

 print(“a is greater than b”)

 

For loop-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  print Current foods :, food

 

Break statement-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  if x == pizza:

   break

 

Continue statement-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  if x == pizza:

   continue

 print(x)

 

Range Function-

for i in range(100):

 print(i)

Plastic should be banned

Credit: Oceana

Plastic is what led to modern life and it is growing rapidly that could even outnumber humans on earth. Although plastic is useful, cheap, and accessible, we should not use plastic because it has harmful effects on the air, land, and sea humans depend on.

 

First, if plastic is burned they can cause air pollution which increases greenhouse gasses. Plastic is composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine, and sulfur which are greenhouse gases that are burn from plastic. Green House gases are what keep our planet warm otherwise Earth would be like Mars. Although greenhouse gases are to balance our temperature, if there is too much it would destroy ozone that helps stabilized temperature and would greatly harm our atmosphere. According to National Geography, “Temperature has increased dramatically over time and ozone has deteriorating. The widespread concern about ozone deterioration that allows a large amount of Ultraviolet B rays which cause skin cancers, more importantly, Earth have two poles that are made from ice.  If temperature increase thus would melt which result in flood”. An estimate in India who face the most tragic flood has ever happened, calculation by the National Disaster Management Authority have evaluated at an average of 1600 people died due to flood each year.

 

Secondly, when plastic is buried they release chemicals that could greatly harm the soil which affects crop growth. Plastic has chemicals that when release to the body of water or buried, they could bring toxin and poison living things surround it. Moreover many animals and bird likes crows are being surrounded by plastics which is hard to find foods. Furthermore, plastic that ended in ocean cause marine life to greatly damaged. Laura Parker writer who specializes in covering climate change and marine environments in National Geographic writes, “The miracle material has made modern life possible. But more than 40 percent of it is used just once, and it’s choking our waterways.”  Sea Turtles are victims, their prey is jellyfish. Many plastic bags can be confused as jellyfish which turtles can’t digest and many have died from plastic. Researchers found out that the younger turtles are at higher risk of death, therefore, death chance of turtles has increased nearly 50%. In addition to plastic bag, microplastic has increased to about 51 trillion particles–500 times more than stars in our galaxy–in our sea. In 2015, Jenna Jambeck, a University of Georgia engineering professor, estimated that about 14 million tons of plastic just form coastal region. She and her colleagues said that most plastic isn’t thrown off ships but are from rivers and smaller water bodies.

Finally plastic could bring harm to human body. Carcinogenic, neurotoxic, and hormone-disruptive chemicals are the main ingredient found their way into our ecology through water, land and air pollution. When consume or inhaled they chemicals, as a result, it leads to fertility problems, cancer, male impotence, heart disease, and others condition.

To all readers who want our next generations to live peacefully and happily in a healthy environment, therefore we should abolish single-used plastic.

Photography!!

In this class, Cindy taught us about a basic lesson on how does camera work and how to adjust the setting such as :

Exposure- Determines how light or dark your photo will be

Shutter speed- Affects how motion is captured

Aperture- Affects depth of field

ISO-Affects image noise

And there is two type of camera which are DSLR and Mirrorless

Resource: Know, Now You. “Why You Should Hold off on Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras over DSLRs.” Techly, 23 Jan. 2014, www.techly.com.au/2014/01/04/mirrorless-cameras-rip-dslrs-still-need-mirror-ces-update/.
