By the way, I was called as an MC for the stands even though in the end it looked like I was the sales promotion girl hahaha… FYI, during the three days, I had no trouble with consumption. My belly was filled with food so definitely not experiencing starvation. Even the committee gets free shirt good to go for on the field! Everyone was enjoying their time even though there were many times the schedule changed. We even get to know the seniors and get to know people in the same classes. Peace out!
Here’s a little something I want to share about = my Me Book!
What is a a Me Book? Well, it’s actually a book you can create where you fill all the pages with everything about YOU!!! Bellow are example pages which I created when I was at Jr High. Actually, it was one of our task but it turned out to be an interesting project.
This Me Book I made is based on a natural concept. The pages are made from recycled paper, aluminum foil and even cut bits from magazines. I tried to make it as neutral as possible yet fun to look at with lots of images and folded up pages. As for the content, there’s a page about myself, my family member, my friends, my school life, the houses I’ve been living in, my holiday experiences, philately, and geotopia. Geotopia is also another project you can do which is a project where you create your own country and describe in detail about all of it aka playing around as a ruler.
I hope you’ll get inspired by this project and maybe try it by yourself at home. It’s definitely a fun way to spend your time and I usually love to look back at it as a reminder of my childhood life. Even my friends are interested in looking at it since every page has it’s own uniqueness and the varieties of elements to look at.
Bonjour! We meet again but now, I got a nice clip of how my class is when we’re having an outdoor class. It’s an Architecture Landscape class where we were told to draw 2 scenes and find the elements which are there. Even though it was drizzling but we still had fun and I found a few great shots with a 3.2 megapixel camera (average quality). So just check it out!
