For my P12 I decided to do something similar to our virtual reality project we had to do. Minecraft is a game where you can create anything you can possibly imagine. From a house to an arena where all of your friends can come by and have a huge battle. You can also join your friends’ servers or a random server that are hosted by anyone on the web. You can also create your world to your liking just like Second Life and live your second life online!
Here are some pictures of my second life I have created online on Minecraft.
I decided to built a house right on the sand by the water because who wouldn’t want a house on the beach side!
This is the inside of my house, I had a homemade fridge and a stoven/oven.
Here’s the storage area of the house where you can put all your goodies.
Here is the HUGE TV! And a comfortable couch to just sit back and relax! With your King size bed on the side hahaha.
I also decided to make a barn since I like to have animals and I wished I would have my own in real life!!
Here are my Mooshroom cows! They’re cows mixed with mushrooms, only available in Minecraft…
My sheeps’ den filled with sheep being sheep.
Can’t go wrong with pigs! Every farm needs pigs!
This is my chicken coop! For some reason chickens have been my favorite animal, here at home I have over 15 chickens! hahaha And they just roam around the house eating whatever they can find.
Here on the wall you can see my wolves just tucked away on the side just in case monsters come by the wolves will automatically attack them if they hurt the player. Also every den and coop and even the barn are watched by villagers, just to make it look as they’re securing the premises!
You can also wonder into generated parts of the world that are already inhibited by villagers.
You can either interact with the villagers and trade with them or live with them!
Or destroy their village! hahahah
You can literally do anything in Minecraft, this is your second world and second life where the possibilities are endless!!!

This week we were able to choose any form of artwork and I chose memes. Memes are an artwork because people take an original picture and add on to it and create something new, something funny!! Here are some memes I found pretty entertaining!
This week I was able to interview Brenda, from CSULB WOOD. This exhibit was really interesting and pretty impressive as well. Brenda likes to work with wood, she enjoys wood carving and wood furniture. She said that some of the wood benches in the gallery were made specifically for the campus! She’s 23 years old and plans to get her master’s in 3D media at CSULB and is majoring in wood right now. She is inspired by her father, he’s the one that taught her how to use all the tools she uses. Some tools she learned to use were wood saws and carvers, the main ones she uses to create her art. She says learning how to use the tools was difficult because they can be huge and difficult to conduct. Her dad does home carpeting and she enjoys the smell and feel of wood and plans to open up a wooden furniture store. The wood in this exhibit was real cool and interesting, really caught your eye. I was impressed!
Hey Hey! This week I interviewed a interesting character! Henetay Journey! Really interesting name, in my opinion. Henetay is a freshman here in CSULB and is 18 years old. He doesn’t drive but he commutes from San Clemente to CSULB. He has a younger sister but lives with his dad and their roommate, and their two dogs. He enjoys playing all sorts of video games and all sorts of books. He really enjoys Art 110 course but isn’t a big fan of the projects because he doesn’t drive yet, he says driving gives him anxiety and it’s something he just doesn’t like to do. Here is Henetay’s website: http://henatayjourney.com/
Riley Hansler’s Golden Standard was a pretty cool art exhibit. His message is powerful to a lot of us. Don’t blindly follow other people’s expectation, we shouldn’t value such items that aren’t worth it. To Riley what’s more important is finding your own sense of value, one should have their own outlook on life and live up to one’s own expectations. He wants to own his own company and desires to move out to the middle of nowhere. A simple life away from anything that’s anything is his dream. He, just as myself, doesn’t like being told what to do and being told how much he will earn. He likes to rock climb, slack line, and surf. Riley loves to work with metals, he has worked with ceramic and has created many different things just for fun. He’d rather die passionately rather than be rich and lonely.
