Crystal came today and discussed with our class about positive self-talk. Positive self-talk is when you encourage yourself, by talking to yourself. An example would be if you did badly on a test, I would tell myself “At least you tried”. This is one of the videos Crystal showed us a video. In this video a little girl is talking to herself in the mirror giving herself a pep-talk.
I’ll be doing something similar, called positive blogging. Positive blogging is when you point out good things about yourself.
A moment where I were felt proud of myself would be when I published a level on a popular video game, and it got put as being one of the top levels.
One thing I think I do well is drawing. I love to drawing and learning new ways of drawing. It’s amazing how you know what you want to draw, yet it comes out not the way you want it. You wanted to draw a person, but it comes out as a blob of graphite. For me, I practice till my smiley face doesn’t look like it’s hiding a depression.
A responsibility I enjoy having would be being in charge of a project. Any project that involves computers, drawing, or creating anything is fun for me. However I dislike being dragged around in these situations. When I have an idea, I want my idea, I’m willing to accept mods for my idea, but I don’t like my ideas put down. It’s kind of selfish (sorry, really selfish) but that’s the way I think.
A thing I like about myself is my creativity. It helps me with a lot of things. It helps me to find new ideas in an old one. Some people think “What is it”, I like to think “What it can be”. I think for creativity, I sacrifice my concentration. One minute i’m thinking “what’s the square root of ninety-two” the minute i’m thinking of what it’s like to be in space.
Some positive things people say about me is that i’m smart, or that I have good ideas. Most people think that there not as good as they really are. I keep telling myself I’m not good at drawing, but others say that i’m really good. I try to keep my expectations down so I don’t think my drawings are perfect, so I try to improve.
