For my first possible future I can see myself getting a BA in Anthropology and going on to get a MA degree in cultural Anthropology. After getting my degree in this field I will look to find a job in researching cultures in either South Africa or South America. I will achieve this goal by applying myself to this degree and knowing everything I can about Anthropology. During that time of learning I will get internships with Anthropology firms and try to move up from there. Once I get this job I will write about my experiences in articles and blogs to share my thoughts and the culture of other cultures.
For my second possible future, I will choose to be realistic, I can see myself being a wielder. If things go as planned then I will go to school and get a degree in wielding and after get a degree in diesel mechanics. There after work for awhile and open up my own shop. To achieve this goal something would have to happen that would cause me to stop going to school and go to a trade school. After completing my time and earning my degree I would look for a job working with commercial trucks. After completing some time there I will get to know the costumers there and create my own shop and talk to them about how I can repair trucks and there after start my own shop.
For my Third possible future, I can see myself becoming a Anthropologist professor. After getting a degree in Anthropology I will purse a research job with a government firm, researching specific cultures based on certain events that occur. After having some experience under my belt I will go back to school to get a teaching credential and get a job at a university.
Anthropology is a good field that can help you explore yourself and this world. Through this field of work I will try to help people see that we are a very diverse society and we don’t have to let our judgements get in the way of meeting amazing people and doing amazing things. However, reality can hit hard and things might not always turn out the way you plan them. So that’s where wielding comes in, if there is a situation that requires me to start working I will start wielding because it is a good way to earn some money. If I were to redo this activity I would draw out everything with a five year plan to ensure things occurs.
For this weeks art activity we created flipbooks/zines. I made a zine about the life of an alien living in space, but I didn’t really know what to draw because I didn’t know what aliens do. So I was thinking about what exactly an alien would do and I was thinking that they would do extravagant things because they are in space but what if they do everything things like we do. Go to work, school, read, eat, watch tv, etc. So in this zine I made it as if the aliens did they everyday boring typical things like we do.
This week’s art activity was pretty interesting because I didn’t really know what to expect. I never really understood Abstract drawing because I’m so use to art having a face, but this art activity showed me that all drawings don’t have to be in a form or look like something. I did this activity with my sister because we are really chill with each other, I know we can be comfortable and be ourselves. We started off by putting music on and just let the music take control, we started to move our hands with the sound of the music. We had put on breathe by pink Floyd because it’s a really chill song and feel like it we can really let go and let ourselves draw. We drew for about 5 minutes until we stopped because our drawing material had broke, you can see signs of it on the top right corner.
When I started this assignment I thought about what made the wedge so horrible or great? And I came up with nothing for its benefits and came up with a lot for it’s horribleness. I’ve had bad experiences with this wedge because I’ve crashed into a couple of people rushing to class. that’s why I think we should take it away completely but to some people it’s a symbol for something. So when I drew my architecture plan I made It so that the wedge was moved to the right in between the walk way. I know it would just block the walk way completely but I stayed and watched the people walk through this way and seen that the majority of people walk through the wedge and not too many people walk through the walkway. So that’s why we should just move the wedge to the middle of the pillars.
Trying to draw the koi pond without looking at where I was drawing is very difficult because I couldn’t tell what I was really drawing and in what direction I was going. However, other than that I think I did pretty good. I also drew with a pen so I wouldn’t be able to erase my mistakes but I guess my brain always wants to right my mistakes so I just shaded in the spots that I thought didn’t look good after the I was done. I messed up on the trees/bushes at the top of the drawing so I just shaded in the trees to get ride of the mistakes. I’ll definitely go back after this activity and finish my drawing because it’s such a peaceful place and a good place to draw. There are multiple animals to draw and multiple sceneries to draw as well.
