Weekly Reccap

This week we concluded our video section of class. I am happy about the way that my videos turned out.

1. Breakfast Club Harlem shake. I don’t think I am ever going to get sick of harlem shake videos. And because of the new Billboard/Nielsen tracking system including youtube views, Harlem Shake is number on the Billboard Top 100. 

2. Me and Bridget worked together t0 make our What Is Informatics? video which is lovingly dedicated to our favorite GSI ever-Vidal

3. My best friend Ariel was invited to his first christmas party ever this past year, so he invited me to go with him. We are both celebrators of Channukah so it was a total novelty to us. Here he is celebrating holidays

4. Popcorn is actually one of my favorite foods, and I make at least once a week for dinner when I do not have any actual food in the kitchen.

5. Susie D is the best!

Video #3- What is Informatics?

I have had this conversation too many times to count

” So what’s your major?”

“Communications and Informatics”

“Oh, cool…..”

Whoever I am talking to usually has no idea what I’m talking about when I say what my second major is, and I have to prompt them to feel comfortable with admitting that they do not know the hell I am talking about.

This is a very common problem for all informatics majors, so Bridget and I decided to make a video answering this very question.

We were able to quickly round up a number of people in our major. I rented a camera from ISS  it was a very dinky thing)and interviewed all of our peers. They were all asked the same questions and gave great answers. It was funny to hear how everyone described it. One of the questions I asked was to describe Informatics in the way you explain it to your parents friends, which is always the most difficult group of people to explain to.

For those out of the loop, Vidal is the reason why half of us are graduating. He was our IA in EECS 282 and for other in SI 182 ( Java and Pyhton respectively) and we are all obsessed with him.

we love (cheesey bread) Vidal

we ❤ Vidal

So here is our What is Informatics video:

And our favorite would be informatics major — Tom Haverford:
