My Wiki Journey
My journey was the start of a research journey that I could not have imagined, and I was surely scared to get into the car and drive down this road of mythology and folklore. I didn’t know what I was going to do this article on and how I was going to edit an article that thousands of people have edited. When I was told I had to do it on something related to class I was nervous because the article that originally going to do was one that I could put an home touch to it but I am never the type to back down from a challenge so I got back into my car and went down a different road and decided that on this journey you can’t use a GPS or you’re going to struggle.
So, I decided to let myself go and see where I run out of gas. It turns out that my romantic side came out of me and decided to do the one love symbol that everyone knows and that is Eros or better known as cupid. When looking for a cupid article, I wanted to find an article that I felt I good add some good information and it not get lost in the surplus information that would already be there. Cupid is a topic that people could talk about for days, and I could see that in all the articles that I was finding. I eventually found my destination in a cupid article that left just enough room for me to add information about cupid. My goal was to find information that was unique and told a different story than what we use too. I wanted to do that because going over the cupid and psyche in class was such a different lesson seeing the different depictions and topics of cupid, I wanted to see what else was out there for the god of love. Starting the project surely didn’t get the full gist of what Wikipedia was all about as I got a quick notification and talk from Wikipedia and Dr. Campbell about what my next steps should be. The pressure is on and I am about as nervous has I can possibly, so I take the time to reread through the training modules and trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and what can I do to fix it. After a couple days of more strenuous research and just plain crying at one point I finally figure out it’s me that is holding me back and that I have to just let go and let this metaphorical energy just take over me and don’t look back. Maybe I should’ve never started driving maybe cupid should’ve been the one driving. It was too late to worry about this now I had no time to feel sorry for myself and no one was going to feel sorry for me either, so I had to just put more gas in the car hand the keys to cupid and hop in and hope he doesn’t crash the car. I started looking for more articles on cupid and from the advice from Dr. Campbell started to work more in my sandbox and really go into more detail with what I wanted to convey in the article.
As cupid took his left and rights, he took me to his fondest memories of psyche and how beautiful she was and that his mother venues hated her so much and as much as he loved his mother, he loved psyches beauty. He took me to his favorite places where he first shot his arrows the moment, he realized his power. This road trip with a baby in a diaper driving surely turned heads as we were being looked at in the library, we stopped at to work more on telling his story. Getting back in the car I started to gain more and more confidence with every new article and every new website that I saw. Driving down this road with cupid in the driver seat I should’ve known that it was going to have a twist. Seeing the different sides of what other people think of cupid was very enlightening and that what I saw cupid as before this trip was the side, I was raised to see, and that is the cute baby in a diaper when in reality he is more than that he is a mischievous, cute, devious god that knows he is a god. He also has this demon like aura around him like maybe if pushed to the edge the cute baby might have an outburst. I had this moment of realization of wow I enjoy letting myself go and not impeding myself from what should be a joyous experience, it took a moment of me breaking down in class, throwing papers on the ground, and or cursing out my computer. Cupid shot me with a different type of arrow, an arrow of excitement, passion, and curiosity. However, isn’t that what love being anyway. This road trip ends but the one thing that I fell in love with was a different side of me came out on this trip.
