Where have I been?

I have not posted on my course blog in a while because I have been working on posts for my masterpiece blog: theclassyu.blogspot.com 
Alongside creating different posts my group (Micaela, Rachel, and Caroline) and I have also been discussing, brainstorming, and preparing our presentation.

Look at My Brain

www.theclassyu.blogspot.com is a look inside my brain. I created this blog with Micaela Hellman and am joined with Rachel and Caroline. The label at the top of the page I designed myself. My critical thinking is demonstrated on my masterpiece by my posts being directed at a specific audience. Relaying my knowledge to a group of people is thinking critically. The masterpiece itself is a collaboration between me and my friends. On this blog my brain is not displayed as much because I have not expanded my posts outside of the required posts for a grade. However, the blog shows my creativity because I designed the blog. My critical thinking is showed through me analyzing assignments and reporting on them. I have collaborated on this academic blog because I have asked peers for help on assignments and worked with others for creating their blogs. 

What About My Masterpiece?

My masterpiece is going really well. We have more than 500 pageviews and more than 30 posts already. With the pageviews we are halfway to our goal of 1,000 pageviews by June. The struggle is finding time in four girls schedules to post so when I have free time I create a few posts and schedule them to post over a period of days. Check out www.theclassyu.blogspot.com

Love is Blind

Lady Macbeth is a very influencial character. Macbeth does whatever (murder) to make his wife content even though he doesn't feel it is right. The audience sees Lady Macbeth as an evil character because she is power hungry and manipulative to her husband for making him kill the king.
