This is short film featured at the Short Cuts Canada Festival 2013 in which we see the life of a typical teenager named Noah being played out on his computer screen. I think that this film gives a great insight into how the digital age has transformed the way we communicate and interact with each other in our daily lives. I am a member of this Millennial generation commonly refereed to as the Digital Natives, although I am a few years older than Noah, and I am lucky to remember the days of dial up connections, Nokia 3310s and Snake. This short film is definitely worth a watch, and makes you think how we will be communicating into the future.
So for my first Blog post I decided to reflect on my recent graduation. Graduating from College is one of those great milestones in life and the sense of achievement after four years of hard work cannot be underestimated. Walking up to receive that piece of paper signals the end of one journey in life but at the same time it represents the beginning of a new journey. This fact was highlighted at my recent graduation ceremony when the President addressed the audience, acknowledging our investment over the last four years while also reminding us that this is only the first step towards finding our path in life. By just taking a few moments to reflect on this thought, you might feel nervous,apprehensive and a tinge of excitement. The new journey that awaits the class of 2013 is full of unknowns but also countless possibilities. Personally I am excited about this new journey that awaits, I have recently began the dreaded job hunt and although the job market is highly competitive I try to remain positive in the knowledge that an opportunity will come my way. To conclude I would just say embrace this new journey, be ambitious, be confident and be willing to take risks.
