Find Your Passion
In this assignment I reflected on what things were important to me and what things I liked and disliked as well as my family's opinion. I noticed that a theme was cooking and baking, I've always really loved that so maybe that will point me in the direction of a project. I think this was a really good and important assignment because it helped me see and think about things I like and am interested in, which definitely helped the brainstorm process with this project and I'm definitely excited to get started!
Learn, Solve, Make, Do!
I really loved this activity, it helped me organize my thoughts and come up with some really good ideas. In the beginning if this project I was feeling really overwhelmed and like I just didn't know where to start. This activity helped me organize my ideas in different categories and to see everything organized was very helpful. Seeing everything written down definitely helps me not feel as overwhelmed and I was also able to think of ideas I never would've even thought to do in my free time. Also now, I was able to really consider the feasibility of my ideas and if I could do it in a 6-7 month period. Overall this activity was very helpful to me and now I don't feel as overwhelmed. :)
For this activity we had to narrow down our ideas even more and write more about them. I chose three of my most popular highlighted ideas from the previous activity. I really considered them as I was answering the questions and now I think I have more of a clear direction than I did before. I was also able to get feedback in this activity and that really helped me as well. I'm not quite there yet, but I definitely have an idea and I'm so excited to continue. :)
In this activity we had to choose our project and describe it in detail. This activity really helped me think deeply about my project and think about how I'm actually going to do it. I was able to express my thoughts and plans at this stage and address a concern I was worried about but that I was ready to plan and adjust for. It really helped me think about certain parts and think how I will be challenged and what I'll learn and need for this project. It really helped me think more in depth so that I can plan better.
