Day 703: Was here 8:30-3:30 in the “resource” (special education) classroom. ✏️📚🍎#PicFrame
Day 702: Last day of class with this awesome professor. It’s very rare you come across a professor that knows what they’re talking about, knows how to teach, and knows how to make their students learn. Excuse the appearance; didn’t realize it was going to be our last class. #squaready
Day 701: Black Friday weekend is finally over. We did better 💲💲💲 on all three Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, days than we did last year. I don’t know if it’s because it was my third Black Friday, or because I’ve literally been taking chill pills lately, but everything was chill. #Picfx
Alright. I study photography at school and a couple of weeks ago, we had to participate with a photography-contest called “contrast”. You could choose whatever you wanted: young-old, poor-rich, boy-girl, city-nature etc. I didn’t want something cliche and decided to show the contrast between someone who has self harm scars, and someone who hasn’t. No one of my class knows the left arm is mine, but I showed the picture to everyone to present it and I said that scars don’t have to define you. I thought everyone would be like “ew”, but everyone thought it was a really nice picture and I did a good job. They weren’t the only one who thought that though, because a week ago I got an email from the contest, saying I got more info this week. Yesterday I saw some pictures of the jury who were looking at the elected pictures, and guess what I saw? My picture. This photo is probably going to be exhibited in december, and I’m actually really proud of myself. I am not gloryfying anything, I do not think my scars are beautiful nor do I like them. I’m just not ashamed of them, and I don’t care what anyone else says about it. I only wanted to point out the contrast, because that were the intentions of the contest. So here it is, someone asked for me to post it.
Day 695: Got SO much done today. Was up until 2am finalizing a lesson plan, then took a nap, went grocery shopping at 7am with my mom for our Thanksgiving meal (that I am going to be cooking all, except the turkey (we are buying a already made turkey from Smiths because my mom and I both hate touching and dealing with meat like that)) went to Three Square to have them sign all my volunteer paperwork, had class at 11am, went to Staples to get ink cartridges for my printer, went to my other class at 4pm and presented my 30 minute lesson plan AND a 20 minute PowerPoint on deaf/hard of hearing students, went shopping with Rikki for a little bit afterwards and then finally passed out for the day. Gotta love Mondays. #squaready
