To start the assignment off, I first started listening to a little crazy music to help me become energized. I've attached links to the videos on youtube if you are interested. It's k-pop/ korean pop music FYI
Crayon by G-Dragon
One of a Kind by G-Dragon
Fantastic Baby by BIGBANG
Monster by BIGBANG
I have found that listening to k-pop, though I don't know what they are saying, really energizes me.
Next, to become more creative I watched part of Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious.
This is what my mind map of winter looks like:
