Week 6

I’m getting frustrated at technology. The professor for this course has asked for my link to this journal repeatedly and I’ve given it to him repeatedly and yet he still seems to not be getting my links. I’ve DMd him and posted it on the channel on Slack, the platform our class uses to communicate. It seems that Slack must not be letting my links actually be seen by others or something. It’s driving me to distraction, because though his whole thing is “Don’t just do it for the grade”, I don’t want a 0% for this journal just because technology isn’t doing its job. Perhaps that can be my project-that-I-still-don’t-understand. How to make technology actually work when you need it to.

Regarding the project I don’t really understand, there is a part that involves joining a group and participating in a thing with others in your field, and in the past two weeks I’ve been asked to be a guest on a film review podcast and I was asked to join a network of film writers. I’m still not sure if that’s what this project is supposed to be about, but it SOUNDS like it might be a step in the right direction at least to growing my online persona. Hopefully by having something to show for participation in my field, it will count at least somewhat towards what this class is supposed to be about.
