April 29 – Boat, Maybe.

Each year in 10th grade, IB students spend 6 months on a personal growth project. We went up to school to check them out.

Projects ranged from planning a fundraising run to building an electric guitar with everything in between.

writing a science fiction novel
learning how to decorate a cake
rebuilding a Gran Torino
composing a piece of music
making a laser harp
pottery
building a propane generator
training a dog
training a horse
becoming an equestrian show rider
balancing mobiles

One student built a Suessian playhouse to be auctioned for charity that garnered the local newspaper’s attention.

This was my favorite. I get the impression from the title that this student learned a lot about himself.

February 18 – Graveyard

graveyard

Decomposition Graveyard at the CSU Environmental Learning Center. We stumbled upon this while walking around the ponds near school. I didn’t know that it takes 3-4 years for a banana to decompose!

I guess now is the time to tout the book I’m reading: The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why It Matters

You’ll be riveted. Trust me.

Personal Commandments

See the big picture. (and get a shot of it!) Step up. Give back. Do something different. Make a lot of mistakes, but never the same ones twice. Be ridiculously happy. Action, not reaction. learn, laugh, love.

Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba.

Be the Change!
