March 7th, 2010 Assignment
Randy Pausch's Last Lecture
I really enjoyed how Mr. Pausch explained things about his past, from his cancer to back when he was a child. I loved that he stated that "anything is possible". I personally love this quote because anything is possible, if you can dream it you can be it! I really liked how he pointed out his childhood dreams!!! I liked how he pointed out in his spill about football, it's all about the fundamentals. And also, "when your screwing up and nobody's saying anything to you anymore that means they gave up." I thought that was a great lesson to live by. Critics are the ones who still love and will never give up. "Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted" this quote is true, and it encompasses everyone daily. How great is that he wrote in the encyclopedia! I found it funny when he said something about Wikipedia, when I just blogged about it the other day! :) Captain Kirk?! Well, I am really glad he showed a picture of this Captain Kirk, because I had no idea who he was!! Doesn't that make ya feel old?! :) Mr. Pausch actually met his idol, Mr. Captain Kirk! That would be awesome! I liked how he got to experience so many things that I'm sure he didn't think he'd actually get to meet. I found it amusing about all his stuffed animals that were brought out! I liked how he mentioned brick walls. Brick walls are not made to stop you they are there to see how you're going to climb over that wall. It reminds me of that Miley Cyrus song, The Climb! :) I am a huge Disney fan, he was an imagineer!! How amazing, I really enjoyed listening and watching his works on the Aladdin VR, which is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. He worked on so much virtual reality things for Disney! I liked how he tied back in to how great it is to be a professor, parents and students came to his class! I can't believe he had a class about virtual reality and he actually "performed" what they did. I'd have to say the "hello world" video was cute, but that bunny giggling got on my nerves! But how awesome is that to show people what college students learned! I really enjoyed the quote about being a salesman. What a great way to put it. Selling education, because once you have an education no one can take it away from you. Overall, I really enjoyed this video by Mr. Pausch because he pointed out so many important aspects. Mr. Pausch is an inspiration!
Comments for Kids
Whoops, I didn't realize that we were suppose to comment for kids in our blogpost each week! That's my bad! Well, I am starting this now...better late than never. This week I was assigned Diana D. Her blog was written February 24th and it was about dancing. I loved how Diana wrote about her interpretation of dancing and what it means to her! I personally love to dance, although I think (and I'm sure others do to) I personally SUCK at dancing! But, I love to make a fool of myself anyway! :)
