Reflection on Independent Reading

The novel I have been reading is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, and I have get to near the end of the novel. There is not much question that I want ask at this point because that it is getting toward the end and have just reveal the truth behind Hailsham,  it actually have just answer my questions, such as why was students’ art work so important and what is the purpose of the gallery. Since this novel is science fiction, it is not very close to my life, but there is a lot ethical consideration or choice about ethic in the process of learning, so it is somewhat close to our life.  i predict that the story will not have a happy ending at the last, i think Kath and Tommy will try to enjoy the rest of their time, but as Tommy’s forth donation come they will have to leave each other, Tommy probably wont be able to survive though the fourth donation. The novel uses clone that were used in the medical sciences as its protagonist, and just by telling story of their normal life make me realized that, even if they were create just for experiment or medical use, it is still kind of inhumane to do so. And even though the protagonist all understand and accepted their fate, it still does not make the story easy.

Reflection on Identity

In this class I learn how to give a good speech and how to write in different text type. I am most interested in the subcultures because it is more about the identity of individuals with more details and characteristic. I am also really interested in the fiction story to be or not to be, because literature is presenting identity in a very different way than others. What surprise me in this class is the stereotypical view of China in the western country, although those videos and advertisements are made in a few years ago, the view are still too wrong.   I want to learn more about the subcultures, because I want to learn more about my own identity, and subculture is the one that is the most specific to individual compares to the other four. The awareness of identity is important because it can remind you who you are, where you belong to and even your goal. In this class I learn a lot of new vocabulary like the name of subcultures, and many words from the reading test we had but I don’t have them here, so I can’t put them up now.



I made code that required two input , one is the message that you want to encrypt, another one is the key. the code will encrypt the message according to the key. you can also use the encrypted message and the key to find out the original message.

the code can only for code that contains only capital letters, and the key can’t be longer than  the message.  I will try to make the code work for all letters later

Final product

final product.

the final product is kind of similar to the original picture, but the mountain is slightly different in shape. and the random trees is all in the wrong places.

i failed to make it more detail, because i can’t find a way to make it better. the water i used the orange and yellow color first, but it become hard to recognize , so i change the color to blue.


my inspiration is from the desktop, because it is a really  beautiful picture and doesn’t looks too hard.

i want to make the different color in different layer, and overlap them so they  only reveal the part that i want. at last some tree randomly place on the mountain.

the difficult part is to draw it more detail and beautiful.


the inspiration is from a, random thing in the game, i try to make it more realistic and more stereoscopic, but it gets too complicated and i decided to make it simpler.

i first changed the background color. the original color is the color of reed, i changed it into a color more like mud.

then i tried i try to make the stone. the original stone was too bright and too colorful, so i add shade and reduce color changes.

the grass was the same coding, but different color and repeat more times. the color change isn’t clear.
