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 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!

A New Age

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.

Bus Stop

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.
