This week was pretty hard. I struggled on some of the writing assignments, but overall i’m pretty happy with what I produced. I was freaking out at first because it was a lot of work to do, but once I sat down and started reading through the assignment bank, I had fun with the prompts!
I also had fun doing the daily creates this week. Below are my Tweets:

It didn’t take long until we saw them. Crawling through our broken land trying to kill us all. I grabbed the hand of my friend & said, “They’re here.” We ran and ran crying and trying to save ourselves from these evil alien hedgehogs. #tdc2213 #ds106

This week I also began reading the first chapter of the book I decided to read: I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. I decided I will be reading a chapter a week, and I think that will get me to finish the book by March!
In addition to all of this, I did all the assignments for this week, and I also started organizing my site! I decided to make categories on my website labeled Media & Writing Assignments, Reflections, and Weekly Posts. They are under a drop down menu for my “The End” menu category on my website. I think this way it will be a good way to organize all my posts, and ultimately will make my site clean and all my work clear to where it is posted.
There were two projects by my classmates that ultimately caught my attention. The first thing I loved reading was “Growing on Me” by Janice! I enjoyed reading this reflection post by her because I feel like i identify with her a lot. Like Janice, I have not read a lot of apocalypse literature and I haven’t watched many movies. It was refreshing to read her post because I didn’t feel alone in the way that this is my first time learning about apocalypse fiction, writings, and media. The other thing I really liked is from Joshua! I really enjoyed reading his alternate short story to the Tupac story. I loved how he wrote the ending, and I think he did a pretty awesome job writing an ending that was different, but could also flow with the storyline. I also enjoyed his tweets (they literally make me laugh all the time) and I loved his Tell it/Tweet it challenge! YAY JOSHUA! YAY JANICE! I really love looking at everyone’s tweets- honestly I think that’s one of my favorite parts of the class so far, but these we’re my favorite posts I enjoyed reading! 🙂
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
In the event of an apocalypse, do you think you’d be the kind of person to hoard your supplies (for yourself and your loved ones) or would you share them with those around you in need? Why or why not?
In all honestly, I really had to think hard about this question. I don’t want to be that bitch who doesn’t help others, but then again I feel like in this situation I would be really selfish. I really want to be the type of person who would help others, and ultimately I know I would, but when it comes to food i’m literally such a selfish bitch. I HATE sharing food, so I know I def wouldn’t share in this type of event lmao. HOWEVER, I totally would share other things like knifes, bombs, clothes, sticks, etc etc etc. The only thing I wouldn’t share is food because when I’m hungry i’m such an asshole and even in a world where there isn’t an apocalypse I don’t share lol.
