Midterm Exam

Well so far I feel somewhat comfortable, I still need alot of work in remembering how to do some things, but I think that I might have done fairly well in the midterm. I would not have remembered as much if it was not for Cass. She was a big help, and I thank her alot!

First Tutorial

Most Engaged Moment: My most engaged moment was when I learned how to save a picture for "web and devices" so that I could put it on the blog site.
Most Disengaged Moment: My most disengaged moment was when I got lost and confused when Carmen was expaining how to do the tutorial. Though I got lost for a few minutes I was able to pick myself back up.

Week 1-My first class

Today we basically introduced everyone and talked about what we are doing in the class. The teacher is really nice so far, shes very straightfoward and knows what she wants from us. I hope to learn alot more from her. I took down as many notes as I could. I also hope that I do well and pass this class.
