This Is The Real Monique! :P
wow, it has been awhile since i have done a blog post. But anyways I guess I’m back now 🙂 I just want to say how proud I am of all you guys and this weeks’ projects! I saw so many people actually try this week and get better grades an hopefully you all had fun doing it! And of course, there were some complaints. Some were justified, others were NOT! Yet Liz and I grading 11a’s projects felt that we had asked every student to have certain elements in their projects and that is low grades were given. Majority of the projects posted a minor bio on their person and a link to their Facebook page, I mean I’m sorry but that is not project worthy. That’s my rant for now!!

“Being yourself is as real as you can get. Everyday living and breathing are what constitutes a factual person. The act of pretending to be something your not reveals an insecurity that some carry within their selves. Creating an alter ego subdues that insecurity for a short while until it no longer satisfies the needs of a real identity. Being something your not is fun at first until you realize you cannot be that person in actual life. This other person is only a figment of your imagination.”
“[ree–uhl, reel]–adjective1. existing or occurring as fact; actual rather than imaginary,ideal, or fictitious: a story taken from real life.”Taylor Young –> Katy Goggles
“At first, I was skeptical on making a fake identity, but it ended up being quite fun. I feel that Kitty Goggles or any counter factual identity can be someone’s alter ego when not dealing with real life. Who doesn’t love a cat that wears goggles and attempts to speak in an English accent. I feel like this was another way of expressing yourself like how countless people create a secondlife to become social with just about anyone without the fear of judgement by physical appearance. Instead, being online with a fake identity, people can pass judgements based on personality, which I think is how the real life should be.”

–> “The thought of making up a fake identity and trying to fool others to think it is a true person sounded a bit strange and it reminded me of what Eva and Franco Mattes did.”
