"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic bean buyer, if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for i have some flax golden tales to spin. Come in, Come in." -Shel Sylverstien, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Time capsule!

   Recently we had a project where we had to make a time capsule for ourselves out of a cardboard box! We were supposed to put meaningful things inside that would be seen by our future selves 20 or so years from now. In my time capsule I mostly put things from my hobbies such as anime logos, pressed flowers, and old drawings inside as well as a letter to myself. I put these inside because I want my future self to remember who and what I was in high school and be happy. The decorations I did on the outside of he box are leaves, a snake, and some spiders. It was supposed to "be" me so I made it me: kind of odd and pretty to look at on the outside, with some of the inner weirdness creeping through, but so much more when you open it up.

This year

  I feel as though I have accomplished many things during this year: I grew in my art skills, became more confident, and produced beautiful works of art (if I do say so myself).  I really enjoyed the projects we had done in my art class, and am quite proud of how they all turned out.  I remember where I was as a freshman and I have really grown, not only in my artings but also in my interactions. I am particularly proud of my book, as I was finally able to get the outside stitch right! Yay! I remember my first book was stitched pretty badly because I panicked and messed up. This year however I was able to understand how to do it! This year was great for my development as an artist both in school and out of it which makes me feel as though it was a success.
