May 15 2013 Starting it all up.
It was the first day I started making my Magazine officially. I only finished 2 pages that day that were the title and the index. My plan was to finish 2 pages that day and it was a success. It wasn't really that hard since I knew how to make my magazine. But for next time I want to make better designs that I apply more. Because the designs I used now are designs I didn't really put my effort to. So I had some problems of following the design. It is because I forgot how to become creative and think creative. Since attractiveness for the magazine was the one of the major priorities for the magazine.
May 17 2013 Stuck
It was the second day I created my E-magaines. However I didn't really follow my gantt chart since I also had to make my e-magazine on 16 May which was a Thursday. I didn't create it on that day because I was to tired of making the magazine from activity and after school swimming. I did some revise checking on the first 2 pages and started creating the next 2 pages. But things weren't seeming to follow as planned. Since there were only another 3 days left to finnish itI finished 4 pages that day. I also experienced some problems with creativity.
May 18 2013 Rebirth of Creativity and Effort.
Planning to finish 50% of my e-magazine that day was a success. But getting there wasn't. Because of the lack of creativity I didn't really know how to create my magazine well. Which colors I should use. Stressed because of that I only finished the pages until page 5. Don't wanting to give up, the stress grew. My sister then calmed me down and I instead of that took a rest. Continuing at night I successfully finished 50% of the e-magazines layout. With help of my father and sister I knew how to be creative again.
May 19 2013 Working until the end
Successfully regaining my creativity and effort back I worked on the other 50% of the e-magazines layout as soon as I got out of bed. I didn't give up and putted all my effort to finnish it up until page 14. Taking some breaks I congrats my finished E-magazine and felt relieved out of finishing the whole layout. Continuing with other home works that I also had to finish
Restart, Hardest Days 19 May 2013- 22 May 2013
So happy to finish my project there came a rain. A heavy rain fall so heavy the water came in my house. Excited of the water flowing in my house I wanted to film it with my phone and laptop as a memory video. Not knowing that the stairs were slippery I slipped and my laptop fell in the water changing everything! The laptop broken I had to remake everything. I got 3 extra days. Finished it all up. But still regret that I took my laptop to the risks. Changing all my hard work to nothing worth it. Next time I should be more responsible and knowing more about the risks. But successfully at last I finished my magazines layout again.
Conclusion Of Project
I have learned that I should be way more organized next time and be more planned. Because this is not acceptable for me next time. The causes were stress and laziness. Especially the laziness because of that it delayed the planning and jumbled it all up to one day with other projects. SO next time I should be more planned and more active and not lazy.
