Five Steps

Well over spring break I am going on a trip to Yosemite with Melissa and Whitney. So five steps I can take for my masterpiece on this trip is doing things out of the ordinary and filming them, try things I feel uncomfortable with, take risks, make the most of this trip and have nothing but fun on it, and no matter how tired I get to do everything Melissa wants to do haha.

Look at my Brain

    My Masterpiece that I have been working on with Whitney reflects what I enjoy doing. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted my masterpiece to be centered around because there are so many things I like doing but nothing that seemed interesting enough to do a big project on. One day I was talking with Whitney and we were talking about this movie that we had both seen and a light bulb went off. We decided to collaborate and make a blog about how movies have changed throughout the centuries and how they reflect the societies they were created in. My masterpiece reflects my not so very creative mind, my ability  to collaborate, and my critical thinking while watching movies and comparing them.

What about my Masterpiece?

   To be completely honest I have not been working on my masterpiece this week. I have tried, believe me, but with all my other classes and sports I have been unable to do what I need to. Therefore I am a little bit behind on my masterpiece but I intend to make up that progress as soon as possible. Stay tuned more stuff to be posted on my masterpiece blog!

Love is Blind

The statement that love is blind is a very accurate description of someone who is in love. Macbeth loves his wife and sees her through rose colored glasses. However, unlike Macbeth we see her for who she truly is. The audience sees her plotting and scheming and although Macbeth knows her personality he refuses to see it because its not what he wants to see. Much like in our own lives we only see what we want to see and believe what we want to believe because the idea that something doesn't fit into our perfect worlds would be unbearable. The difference between Macbeth and the audiences’ views of Lady Macbeth is that Macbeth is emotionally invested in her while the audience is just watching a play and coming to their own conclusions on things.
