Paper Sketch:

I decided to split the project into three different sections: Heart, Background, and Text.

1. Heart: I used the same code I used for the Basic Shapes assignment and filled it in with a random array of colors.
2. Spots: I also randomized the location and color of the spots. It has a frame rate of 10.
3. Text: I searched for short, sweet quotes online and used them to replace an array of words. This would randomize which quotes appear when you run it. I found the random function text online.

Color: I used this website to color pick from an image I found on Pinterest.

10,000 Bowls of Oatmeal:
I didn’t necessarily solve the 10,000 bowls of oatmeal problem, but I do think the random text function from an array really helped me improve it. It’s the same feeling you get when opening a fortune cookie. Although the user knows that it is somehow randomly generated, a meaningful text somehow feels “meant-to-be” and specialized only towards the one that actually received it. Therefore, meaningful text, even though it is randomly generated, helps in the 10,000 bowls of oatmeal problem.
