Winter is here!

As you already know from a previous post, I am Colombian. More precisely from Cartagena, which is a very very hot place because is in the coast.

To us it is summer the whole year. So for us a simple shirt and some shorts would be enough to wear when going out. 

Cartagena is beautiful. It is like living in the colonial era.

I used to live three blocks away from the beach, and I could just take a walk to the bay where I would usually roller blade. We are really colorful and fun people. we are always happy. or at least most of the time.

We have many touristic places one of them is called “castillo de san felipe” yes, it is a castle. People can go in it.

We also have monuments all over the city. 

And this is downtown, we call it “El centro” here is where more tourists go to take pictures and make friends. 

Cartagena is really hot, I used to complain about it because at midday you could feel the sun on your skin and you would sweat a lot. 

But now that I’ve been living her for two years, I really miss it. New York’s weather is just driving me crazy.

It is either I have a runny nose or I just cannot breathe some days. And when its winter. OMG! I just want to put my whole closet on. 

So far this is my third winter here, I believe if I survived two I’ll be able two make it through this one as well.

 

A quick flash back!

Back to when we started the semester I found really cool how just with my phone could have people thinking I am using some kind of app or tool in order to get pictures like this one.

Here is my cousin playing hide and seek with herself while waiting for her next class on campus.

 

It took us a couple of attempts but at the end we got it.

Vapor Wave fever!

Today in class we learned about vapor wave and I must say although it is fun to do, it is really complicated as well. We collected images from chrome and worked with photoshop to put the layers together. It makes you want to keep exploring about it. It is a little tricky but I made it!

My fisrt GIF!!!

When I came to class on Tuesday morning I was a little moody as usual, but at the moment the professor said “We are crating a GIF today” My mood changed from dark to brighter colors. 

We did it on something we like so what first came to my mind was my favorite cartoon SPONGEBOB SQUARE PANTS and of course I was happy about it.

 

 

 

at first I thought it’d be difficult because I’m not so skillful with computers and technology and just the web in general so I was like “Oh no!” 

 

 

But then he introduced tools like Imgur https://imgur.com/ and Giphyhttps://giphy.com/ and things went smoothly from there.

So I said: 

What makes me happy. –

I believe anything can make me happy, and yes I’m not exaggerating . 

Nature makes me happy just as it makes me calm, just going for a walk or sitting on a bench at the park will put a smile on my face. 

I also enjoy making other people happy, I can try some corny jokes or maybe just being a little annoying with them , sometimes I feel like I’m almost 20 but in reality I’m about to be 13 because of how childish I can be. Dancing makes me happy too. 

And music 

AND OF COURSE DOGS!!!!! just cause look at them 

ADORABLE, I KNOW.

are memes art?

Creating memes can be fun, but is it real art? For many of us it might seem like it is. Memes can certainly make you feel some type of connection with the people who share them and that is truly a way of art.

Now memes can also make your day a little better right? Life has become a little more excited ever since memes have taken over the internet.  Now  because it takes time and some effort to create the those people who spend hours trying to find the perfect quote or the perfect image should be given some credit and be called “artists”.

Here are some of my favorite ones:

  

From my own experience about creating a meme, I’d say  it is not as easy as it seems to be but when you have the results you expected it feels awesome.

Here is my work from today:
