My second week nearing the end has been another great, productive week. I have been preparing and educating myself on The End. This week I decided to jump around and do things in a different order. I first started with the Daily Create that we all had to do. I created my story about my day at work and the zombie apocalypse. The second Daily Create I did was the gate into another dimension and the picture I used for it was pretty creepy, because the entire apocalypse theme to me is a little creepy so I decided to stick with it!
#tds2206 It was 8 AM when I woke up to go to work. While I was driving the roads were oddly empty for a Friday morning. I arrived at work & saw my coworkers who looked like they had been eaten alive but they slowly started walking towards me, they were zombies..I had to go..fast.

I really enjoyed writing my story for the Tell It/Tweet It assignment we had. At first I thought this was going to be a little tricky because sometimes it takes a little while for my creative juices to get flowing, but I gave myself a few days to think about what I wanted to write. I think this assignment really helped me with digital storytelling in writing. I had a lot of fun with it!

I filled out the form for the course planning and the apocalypse archetype. For the archetype I talked about the survivalist characteristic because of The 100, all of the main characters are survivalist with the characteristics of being tough, intelligent, and headstrong.
The last thing I did was watch End Day, read the Routledge article, and I read an excerpt from the book “The Passage.” I think that End Day was informative in a way that not every apocalypse is about aliens or zombies. An apocalypse can be a natural disaster or a really contagious virus going around. I feel that these opened our eyes more to what an apocalypse really is and why so many people are interested in them. I actually enjoyed watching and reading all of these because I feel that I learned more about the apocalypse which is going to help me in this class.
Question of the Week:
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, I would rather be turned into a zombie than everyone I love be turned into one. I think I would rather be turned into a zombie because I am one person rather than so many people I love. Either way I will be alone because no one can really interact with a zombie and I wouldn’t be able to interact with anyone. I just don’t think that I could watch everyone I love be turned into something they aren’t, so I would rather just be the sole person that gets turned into a zombie.
Looking forward to seeing what we will be doing this upcoming week. 🙂
