Well, I dissevered I'm horrible a inspiring or motivating myself when it comes to writing. I often ended
up doodling or going to to other work simply because I couldn't think of anything to write. I did end up trying my hand at writing fiction and ended up working on the papers in my spare time. I really need to work on self motivation.

Hello, for my reflective blogpost I'm taking a look at my previous blogpost and doing a self narration's for the 3 previous post. To be totally honest I didn't understand the ideas and reasons behind the assignments and only recently figured out what I was supposed to do for the post.
First Reflective Post:
First Week Woo!
This post may have been a little too short of a post. I was really just excited to be going to collage and I hadn't even read the reflective post assignment and just wrote something to express my excitement.
Second Reflective Post:
Steam Punk Stuff.
In the second reflective blog post, after I had been told I had done my first reflective post was done incorrectly, I read over the requirements and couldn't really understand it. My brain tried to find something to latch onto and "creative interest" was what got stuck in my mind. I ended up finding a lot of cool pictures from a subculture/artist expression that I'm interested in and have written stories related to it. That I wish I would have included because it would have been included to somewhat meet the requirements of the assignment.
Third Blog Post:
I've really already done this one. I finally got a grasp on the reflective blog post and that really helped because I was starting to worry about my grades but I think I'm going to do fine now. I still look back and wished I would have used another medium for my project.

Reflection: Make Cycle 2
I originally planned out the "complex" of my one pagers in a Portal inspired design, but as I began going into the actual construction I found it to be overly technical compared to the time frame allotted. I had intended for much more to be available within the compound. Even including a story centered around understanding that the truth of this world can only be formed through shared perspectives and listening to one person only causes the truth to be twisted.
If i decided to make this again i would like to have more time and I would plan more ahead based on my limitations.

In my opinion many things that have become reality without the inspiration of Jules Verne. THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT KNOW WHO JULES VERNE IS, YOU ARE MISSING OUT. In my opinion some of his more influential books are From Earth to the Moon and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Which it should be pretty obvious what they inspired.
Another great Science Fiction writer, that has influenced many scientist, is H. G. Wells. Some of his books include First Men in the Moon, The Invisible Man, and The Time Machine. Wells' books did a better job at explaining the processes behind the "fiction," that is now a possibility.
Both of these authors have played key roles in inspiring scientist for years. Curiosity plays a the largest role in science and science fiction is just a good way to build that curiosity. Procedure only comes into play when the experiment happens.

*Very sleepy and busy* I don't really have a whole lot of time to work on my reflective blog post ((nor enough energy to think)); so, I thought i would introduce one of my artistic interest. I am a really big fan of the steampunk style in general but I really enjoy the costumes and I intend to make one of my own very soon my Concepts class. So, look forward to seeing it posted.
