The Brainstorming and search:
The hardest part about creating a meme for me is thinking of the text for the picture.
I started by thinking of possible meme scenario, as a student, something that I can relate to.
I was first thinking how before in school students would sleep and pass notes during class to fight boredom but now it has changed to playing on their phones, texting, and/or playing with their laptops if permitted.
Before starting anything, I needed to find out how to insert text into a picture, so I googled, “how to insert text for a meme” and found http://wigflip.com/roflbot/. After, I searched for pictures by googling “student classroom sleeping,” “student texting,” “student studying classroom,” and other combination of words to find the image closest to the one I imagined.
I found the “reality” one inspiring and decided to do the reality and expectation meme.
I then remembered the “expectation” one and thought they would work well together.
Then I found that there is probably a step that is missing,
which is the fact that what we see at times can be far from reality.
I was thinking about what to name “what we see” to fit into reality vs expection,
came up with 20/20 vision.
The website http://wigflip.com/roflbot/ allows me to either enter the url of the image or upload my own image:
Then you can insert text onto the image that allows you to move it around and change the size and type of font
I inserted the three pictures of along with the text and downloaded it on my laptop.
Then I went onto my blog and and started inserting the image using the icon in the top right corner and
sourced each image by adding the url in the caption.
