Fastest/Beautiful Route Summary and Reflection

In this very interesting article by Lex Berko. They speak on application or app that can help you receive the fastest and most beautiful route to your destination. Some things they were inquiring about was that some routes that are appealing to some may not be to others. This was something I also thought about, they asked themselves the question “but how do you quantify concepts as nebulous as beauty or happiness?” Their question was answered when they went to a website that juxtaposed two pictures and surveyed what people are appealed to most.
In my opinion Im not sure what route I would pick. But, I do know what I like in an alternate route app. I would most likely like to have a fast route that shows me the most pictures of urban artwork and basketball courts. It is very bizarre to see those things together but this is what I would like to see. I have been loving basketball since I was a little boy and urban art like graffiti art because I personally can not do it.


Project #1 Reflectons

My project as a whole was mostly about me and my bio. I wanted to give a lot in that section because we do not all know about each other very well and I really wanted to show who I was. During my time doing this project I learned where in the school is best for me to work, when I do want to work on campus. I was not sure where each lab was and I did not know how quiet or loud it was going to be when I arrived there. Although in the end the best place for me was the library which I only stumbled upon because I went up the stairs the opposite way I usually do. After finishing this project I think the thing that I am most proud of would be that I believe that I have completed all of what is required and I feel confident about it. On the other hand what I believe needs the most work after project one is trying to remeber to write everything in the post instead of on word or google documents, and to fix my grammar mistakes before they happen or before I publish it on to my website. Now, during the process of this project I believe the most heplful was the feact that each requirement was listed and we just chose where each one would go in the essay. Whether we wanted a paragraph for each category, or two catergories in one paragraph it made it easier to accomplish. As of now although I did not have much additional support I am not sure what additional support I might have wanted or needed. Lastly I wrote this project all in one condensed hour an fifteen minutes. My time management has never been the best but I do still feel confident in what I have wrote and as for next time I may start earlier I may not, but in all I beleive this project was a good experience in different ways.
