The Student Blogging Challenge strikes again. Oh, happy day…
The first week, of course, is all about getting to know each other. We update our About Pages and create avatars to represent our online personas. The avatar that I created last year has been very useful: I use it as a featured image on pretty much every post that I write, in a different position to fit the subject of the post. Bitmoji is cool that way.
Since I already have an avatar that I think is very representative of me and my personality, I thought I could make ones for each of my family members, excluding my dog. Sorry, Barley.
I have a mum, a dad, and a younger sister. This time, instead of using Bitmoji for their avatars, I decided to use the Memoji program on Apple devices that let’s you create a custom emoji. I thought it would be fun to shake things up a bit.
First, I think I’ll start with my mum. I made her facial expression very happy, since she is usually smiling and loves to talk. She always dyes her hair using henna, so I made sure to include reddish streaks in her dark hair. I also added nice earrings, which I always admire. I found leaf-shaped ones that she actually owns, which was cool.
Next, I made an avatar for my dad. He is kind of goofy and likes to joke around. His expression was a bit difficult to choose, but the one I used makes him look friendly, which I like. Memoji makes everyone look a bit doughy, which is weird for my dad, who is super tall and skinny. That isn’t great, but I still think he looks like himself.
Finally, I created an avatar for my sister. Her name is Amy, and she is in Grade 6: two years younger than me. She enjoys pink things and all types of design. We are pretty close.
For her avatar, I had her posing strangely, because she likes to make peace signs when she is trying to be funny in photos, and I though that it kind of suited her. She is the only person in our family with blond hair, so I made sure that she stood out in that respect. She is wearing gold heart-shaped earrings to represent her love of cute and glamorous things. I really like this avatar.
Those are my family members! Looking at the contrast between my avatar and theirs, they look really different. It would be weird if we all took a family photo together. I would look strange and out of place.
What have I created.
Anyways. Hopefully now you know more about me and my family! That was the point of this post, after all. Not strange animated family photos.
Do you have any trait or quirk that makes you stand out from your family? I would love to hear about it in a comment!
In case you’re interested, which, let’s be honest, you’re probably not, I updated my About Me page as part of this challenge. A lot of things have changed in 7 months! Who knew?
Thanks for reading! See you next week!
