I'm Hazel and I hope to learn skills from this module that will help me in the future.

exercise 1: stop motion animation

SKITTLE CRUSH

The meaning of the word "PLAY" is to engage in an activity for enjoyment rather than a serious purpose. So we took its literal meaning and applied it to the digital world, specifically mobile games. We decided to take on the highly-rated candy crush and swapped their animated jewel candies to classic candy shell skittles. In order to execute our concept, we had to convert everything that is digitalised in the app into something that is considered physical such as skittles. This is done in the video below through a suitable technique called stop-motion animation.

Be High with Grades, Not Drugs.

Many students' lives have turn into a downfall due to drug addiction. Often times, these students are not entirely to be blamed because they tend to have a different perception of life and most of the time they fail to see what is right and what is wrong. Furthermore, the causes that trigger the decisions of a student are peer pressure, excessive stress and neglect. Students may deal with such issues poorly mainly due to their poor thinking and reasoning skills. Due to this, students are more likely to accept drugs involvements in their lives. However, if you are a worried student going through mentality difficulties, keep in mind that by improving your perception of life, you can make a better difference in your destiny. To do so, you must first keep in mind to:

1. Stop worrying how other people may see and think of you

Students often find it hard to say the phrase “No, thank you.” especially when it comes to rejecting their friends, mainly because they don't want to appear as the "mood spoiler". However, there are many things to be accomplished in life and to please everyone is definitely not one of it. Rejecting a harmful offer is not something to feel guilty and be embarrassed about. In fact, it is another way to show people that you are actually someone with a strong stand of your own, which people will eventually respect you for.

2. Prioritise your future

When it comes to imagining your future, you certainly wouldn't picture yourselves weak and unsuccessful right? Just as long as drugs do not get in the way, a future of success is certainly not impossible. This is because one of the most typical consequences of drug addiction is the lost of jobs. Normally, it is because the person stopped performing as well on the job. For example, there were probably more sick days taken and projects were not taken to completion. Seeing that, if you do prioritise your future, the probability of you picking up drugs will be lower.

3. Love and appreciate yourself

Be it an educational or social problem, as a student you should not be too harsh on yourself. In fact, you must come to realise that the biggest imperfection in life is striving to be perfect. This is because, having the mindset of being perfect will not only degrade your self-worth, it can also lead to emotional and physical problems which will trigger the need of drugs. You need to be self confident, not through the way of being perfect, but through the way of having expectations that are realistic. Once you start accepting your flaws, you will stop seeing the need to bring yourself down just because someone else is better, you will live your life with more freedom and happiness, and you will certainly not see the need for drug use. Hence, how much you appreciate yourself can affect your behaviour and thoughts, so start appreciating yourself.

4. Be grateful of your existence

You must also appreciate the life your parents have given you. Always think about the thousand procedures your fate went through just to let you see the world and survive. If it weren't for fate, you wouldn't be right here reading about this. Life is full of possibilities and any slight changes in the past would've changed a big part of your life, be it good or bad. Consider how lucky you are to exist, to see the world and to have a family who loves you. Your life is fully under your control, however your life leads you depends on however you lead your life. You do not want to waste this living opportunity given by your parents by disappointing them with just one mistake that can entirely ruin your future. It is too regrettable to just dump your life into sea filled with drugs. When times are hard, just remember that your parents went through a lot of hardships hoping to raise you into a decent person and not someone with a poor reputation.

In conclusion, life is like a blank canvas, whether you paint it with colours or dullness depends on your perception of it. In fact, as there were too many similar cases of drug-abuse happening amongst students, prevention of drugs should begin from youth education. Parents should also be there constantly to make sure that their children don't take the wrong path. Any signs of drug-abuse should not be seen as lightly and should be taken care of immediately. But bear in mind that patience and support is important while the child learn how to take control of his/her life. Having to rise up again after a great downfall in life can be tough. Hence, by sharpening the mentality and the views of life, an easy future with involvements of drugs can be highly guaranteed.
