I fell behind on the Lesson Blogs when my mom died and have had little to no motivation to do them as they keep piling up and I increasingly feel the weight of a mountain of words looming over my head.  Now these are due in less than a week. and I have 9 to get done. There were 10, but I just finished the one for this week.

They have to be 250+ words expanding on the themes discussed in class and include an outside link. Plus I have to select one of the images he used in class and make some commentary on it that has to do with what was discussed in class. 

And THEN i have to go look at my classmates(there are at least 16 of them) and make at least two constructive comments on their blogs for each week of blogs. At least that doesnt have a minimum word count

The following is a list of all the lessons in reverse order from last to first, because that's how the class interface lists them and I am too lazy to retype when I can just employ the wonders of C & P. 

strtikethrough means its completed
15) Photography & Conceptual Art<------------ALSO next weeks lesson, because the prof rides the tangent train so often we are a full week behind schedule*
14) Alternative Visions & Changing Realities <------------next weeks lesson*
13 The American West: Part II  <---------This weeks lesson, freshest in my mind and therefore easiest to do.
12) The Atomic Age, The Family of Man, and the Beat Movement
11) Modernism & Industrialization
10) Social Documentaries
9) Straight Photography 
<--------------- maybe halfway done, I will have to revisit it
8) Photo-Clubs, the Kodak Brownie, and Pictorialism
7) New Visual Technologies (3-D, Motion, & Color)
6) The Civil War & the American West: Part I
5) Imag(in)ing the Other and the Self – Portraits
4) Imag(in)ing the Other and the Self – Landscapes
3) Daguerreotypes & Talbottypes
2) The Birth of Photography
1) Introduction to Class and Overview of Course
 
 
*how I am supposed to have this done by the 7th when we are DOING this lesson on the 7th, I do NOT understand!


After next week, there will be two more weekly quizzes

And after next weeks class the Final exam will be opened up on the interface. Cant tell you how much I am not looking forward to that!

One more day to work on the curation assignment.
I have finished the wall texts(100+ words) for each of my nine photographic images.
Dorothea Lange's "Migrant Mother"
Ralph Meatyard's "Madonna"
J.T. Boysen's "Suzie and Sadie MacGowan"
Anne Brigman's "Bubble"
Edward Weston's "Nude"
Clarence H White's "Nude"
and three pics from the interwebs representing an Earth Goddess, a Fertility Goddess and Nepal's Kumari Devi or Living Goddess.

I have started each of the three section descriptions,(150 words each) all of which are in various states of unfinished.

Same goes for the overall description(300 words)

I have managed to come up with more than the required 10 references through trips to the library and the bookstore and in addition I have a few online references as well.

Must finish tomorrow as it is due on Wednesday.

Tuesday night is exercise class and I skipped last week but I may have to do so again not only because I have to get this done but because I am nursing the remnants of twisted ankle.

Progress.

I've been bad about keeping up with schoolwork in the last month. This week I took 3 online tests, completing all 5 of the available lesson quizzes completed. Out of the 5 quizzes I have only missed 1 question. Actually my answer was correct but there were two correct answers & I didn't get them both.

I had also gotten a month behind on the lesson blogs. Thursday night I got 2 out of the 4 blogs done & Jim posted them for me yesterday from the office. For some reason our home computer and Macdevitt.com, my teachers interface, won't let me post the blogs from home. No problem taking the tests, or even hearing the podcasts, or inputting my attendance password.

Tomorrow Row and I are going to the California Museum of Photography so I can do my exhibit review. My choices are either Cuba Va, or Transpersonae. The 2nd one looks pretty interesting.

So far, having missed the class directly after Mom's death, & having missed one ? & w/nothing else graded, my grade stands at a high A.
