No class today! Well, actually no 12:45 class, but that made all the difference. The day before, I was at the meeting for promoting competitive sports. From that meeting I was assigned to work a booth in the Manwaring Center for Friday nights basketball game. I got all dressed up, wore my new skirt form the DownEast sale, and got the word out for the basketball game. It was interesting to see people walk farther away from the booth because they didn’t want us to shove our pitch in their face. Some people were interested, but most didn’t make eye contact so they didnt have to stop. Some annoying people just grabbed candy and walked away…who does that?? I got some homework done, I went to the gym, I did my laundry, it was great. Later on I went to class at 5 with Mitchell. Afterward, we attempted to go to his stakes dance. When we got to the ballroom, there was no one there! Miscommunication… Guess it ended early… In the end we had a good time running around the MC and being childish. Good day!
Here is the first advertisement I was able to have published. I won a contest among the many graphic design classes in high school, so my work was plastered all over the place at school, online, and in the community to advertise this dance production. The show is kind of a big deal in he Rocklin area. There are two high schools that are highly competitive in sports, including dance. Both schools have nationally recognized teams and many girls in high school are highly involved in dance instruction. I think that that area had an exceptionally high volume of dance participants, so it was cool that my poster was selected to represent our schools production. It was also interesting because the highest level dance team from the opposing nearby school also participated in our schools presentation as well, so it was a piece that tied two rival schools together. I’m really proud of this piece because when I first started conjuring up ideas for what the poster should look like, I was just messing around and playing with fun ideas. The fun idea seemed to work and when my instructor saw it, she immediately saw that it was above the others. Not to toot my own horn but it looked pretty awesome compared to the other creations. I was surprised to find that my fun idea was now posted on every blank wall around the campus and it was a different feeling that i liked being able to say “Hey, I made that!” when others commented on the poster. Overall, it was an interesting building experience!
