This week in class we were asked to dress nicely for pictures and to video record ourselves. We walked around in the classroom playing around with our phones as Grace stood still getting her picture taken by Shawn McAfee. I didn’t really understand what the purpose of that was for. Actually the whole class was kind of confused. She also took photos of us working at our computer on the project. Then we took a few class photos. On Wednesday this week we met at Wayne’s studio to record ourselves talking about how we felt about the war project. We worked on our questions in class on Monday so we were prepared when asked the question. I was nervous to be recorded because we were under the bright lights and the class was all sitting around. I did wait to be one of the last students to go. That made me feel less stressed. I also laugh a lot when i’m nervous so I was afraid that I was going to bust out laughing and not be able to control it. I ended up not laughing and doing just fine. I was proud of myself. I think it was neat that we were able to discuss how we felt about the project as individuals. We also were able to talk about what we learned from our individual veteran.
