I really liked the activities we did Tuesday. When we were doing the bus stop one, my only hope was that I didn't get an old age. I drew 21 and so the whole time i just thought of things that i would when i was at a bus stop, because i'm close to that age. When we did the moving object activity...it was really nerve-racking to let out a scream for our "roller coaster" ride. I seriously got the clammy palms and racing heart. Once the whole class did it though, i thought it was hilarious. Can't wait for tomorrow!
I thought the acting a different age was really hard at first. When I drew four, I had no idea what to do. I tried to think what a generic four year old would do when waiting for a bus. I still had no idea. Then I started to think about four year olds I know. My little cousin, kids at a park I worked at, and so on. When I started to think about them it became a lot easier to act like them. That helped me.
The whole bus stop acting thing reminded me of Forrest Gump, but it was enjoyable. It is hard to portray a certain age by just waiting for the bus. The whole acting out being on a rollercoaster was fun, and I was laughing the entire time. I could not make myself scream blood murder, though. I guess I'll have to work on that.
