|My Learning journey 7|
I did not achieve my last weeks goal because I did not have the app called FL studio mobile so I could not work on my project. The thing I did do though was watch a tutorial about the app and learned kind of how to use it. I could have improved by making sure I had the app or next time I could also have a back up pla for if I do not have the app or the device that had the app on it.
My genius hour project is going to be making music and tracks on FL studio, a music making software with pre recorded sound and it also allows you to add your own sounds onto it. My end product is going to be making three different tracks of different genres: house, Dubstep, and glitch hop. I will include a sample of each below. I will have to learn to use the application and make a "sandbox" piece, meaning that I will test things on it. When I have perfected my pieces I will get peer opinion. After I will publish them to youtube and get them to my playlist and possibly see if anyone will like to purchase a copy.
In my class we are currently doing something called genius hour. Genius hour is where students work on a project that they want to learn about. They study or learn about something they are interested in and are passionate in. The only rule is that if you can finish the project by just searching your subject you have to change your idea a lot. Also you have to make something that will solve a problem or raise awareness. To put it simply you do something your passionate about but it has to have a purpose. So I was thinking about what I like and what I dont like about the things I like. And this is what I have come up with:
Things I like: Clarinet, karate, tech, basketball, building.
Things I dont like about the things I like: Overpriced tech, overpriced furniture, Things not having enough customization.
Have you ever had that one question that nobody can answer? That one that gave you a headache for three days? That one that you feel will satisfy your hunger for knowledge? Or so you think....
I have many questions that I fell nobody can answer and never will. It just bugs me every night just gives the creepiest dreams and I wake up with a great big headache. Some of my questions made someone cry because of a headache. Just kidding. Right now just thinking of what I am going to write makes my head feel like a highway with ideas being cars burning rubber on ol' brain highway 101. The questions are: What is the purpose of life is the human race just soldiers for an oncoming galactic battle? is the purpose to serve some overall master?, What if by reading this blog you just changed the outcome of your life?, Is there destiny or do we make our own destiny? what if our destiny is to make our own destiny?, What if every atom was a planet which was filled with atoms which were filled with planets and so on and so forth?, What is the very base material because everything is constructed of everything, why did we adapt the way we did and what would have happened if we did in a different way?, what was the cause of the big bang?, what if by writing this blog I just made my life shorter which than affected the life of my children to be and so on? What if this laptop that I am using is a future robot that will save the world. What if the outcome of YOUR life will determine the outcome of the universe. How big is space actually? What if the great great great great great great great great great x20000 grandpa of your cousin 3 times removed is the original human of this world. What if in every molecule there is a universe with a world that has a copy of you that has made different choices and the process continues through there? what id by the time you are old and ripe the secrets of the universe will be discovered and you will not live to see it?, what if someone creates a machine that keeps you young and keeps you from aging? what if babies know the secrets of the universe? Why for everything. Nothing really has an explanation. Tonight or the next I want you to lie in bed make sure you are comfy and just think deep deep thoughts. I love this kind of blog because it makes my mind run double time and it makes my head hurt which is often a sign that I am thinking hard.
