The Lady, Or the Tiger?

Ok, so I have no idea what text animation is. After seeing the examples, and searching on Google, I'm still as confused as I was before. I used the text animations in Keynote (the shimmer, the fly in, etc) - but I'm not sure if that's the type of text animation my teacher is looking for. Another type of text animations was the mumbo-jumbo of letters placed sideways and backwards, and words that are sideways or backwards with tiny font or HUGE FONT. I would really hate to redo mine like that. I didn't even understand the example my teacher gave us that's like that. Just because of the text animation. It was confusing. 

My story is interesting, I think. I've always liked the story The Lady, Or the Tiger? ever since I had an assignment on it in 6th grade - we had to continue the ending. My altered ending was pretty good. 

Sometimes I wonder whether my Multimedia teacher actually looks at my posts. I'd imagine I'd be in trouble by now because of some of the things I say on here. But I guess that's what you get when you give students liberties like being able to use the computer to blog. It's not that what I say is necessarily offensive, but I just enjoy ranting about the unfairness of school. It's not like I'm the only one who feels this way about our "policies". If I were my Multimedia teacher, I'd appreciate the fact that me, as a student, at least blogs and does her work MOST of the time, unlike other people, even though she doesn't care for most of it, and not watch soccer games through class on the computer. 


  1. I do look at them, sometimes sooner than other times. I don't always respond on the blog though, as if I'm checking them before class, then its just easier to talk to you. If I end up checking them late, I can't comment, as we aren't suppose to communicate with students through electronic communications between 9pm and 7am as decided by the district.

    I pay attention to whom does what with their time. Not everyone has as good of a grade as you do, as participation and work effort are grades as well. We can chat about the project on Monday.

  2. Heh, burrrrnn.
    Anyway, in response to your comment I did post a quicktime video already on my blog for an animated text.

  3. Hmmm, I hope it didn't come off that way. My comment was mean't to be that way, only meant as information regarding concerns mentioned. That is one of the problem with the net, inflections and tone can't be heard and are instead must be guessed by the reader.
