Do something on the web about the web:

For my final project, I was inspired by “What’s Behind Door Number 10101?” to do a textual analysis. In my Fairy Tales in Literature class with Dr. Mathur, we read several adaptations throughout the semester of different classic fairy tales, and we compared the original to the adaptations, seeing how the major themes have shifted. So, I thought it would be interesting to do a textual analysis of one of my favorite fairy tales: Beauty and the Beast by Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont.

I decided to use Twine and create a game of similar concept to A Dreadful Start. However, instead of having somewhat gruesome/scary concepts in the choices that can be made, I made my game more realistic and suitable for daily play.

OOTD is a commonly used hashtag that stands for Outfit Of The Day. With fashion being something everyone sees, regardless of whether they like it or not, it’s an important aspect of the world today. Additionally, I enjoy looking up the latest fashion trends, piecing together my outfits, and getting inspiration from other people. …

I’ve definitely lied multiple times about reading the terms and conditions and clicking that check box just to proceed. I’m sure that there are many others that lie about this too. But why? This week’s readings got me thinking about why I never choose to thoroughly read of the terms and conditions, and I came up with three main reasons.

“tl;dr” is an internet slang that stands for “too long; didn’t read.” (I find it funny that the phrase itself is abbreviated because four words is still too long.) Based on my past encounters with this phrase, there’s usually a…

Looking back at my previous post, I think I placed the internet under an overly positive light. It’s definitely true that the internet allowed for the world we live in today. Through the internet, we can do so much more, whether it be with scientific research, marketing, or simply connecting with distant friends and family (the latter has been proven to be especially useful nowadays with COVID-19 and social distancing in effect). …

Can you tell me how tall the tallest person in the world is?

Of course you can; you just need to open up a new tab and make a quick search, “How tall is the tallest person in the world?” Just one click and you’ll get millions of search results in less than a second. That is the power of the internet; it connects you with people, facts, information, places, things all around the world while omitting the space in real life. As David Weinberger, author of “Small Pieces Loosely Joined” puts it, “The Web is a public place completely…

When I first started reading Ray Bradbury’s “The Veldt,” I wasn’t able to completely grasp what was going on (it was the same for his other piece, “There Will Come Soft Rains”). My initial reaction was actually envy after reading how Mr. and Mrs. Hadley had their dinners made by a dining table with a “mechanical interior” (page 6) because there is so much convenience in that. When I finally got an idea of what was happening with the nursery, the kids, the role of Mr. and Mrs. Hadley in the family, the changing world, I was shocked and felt…
