One question I have to myself is why have I not taken art before senior year. I loved this class and I loved expressing myself in this kind of way. I did things I never thought I could have done, like drawing the bike and having it actually look like a bike. I liked exploring and experimenting with things I have never done before, like making a book, flower and fox out of clay. If I could redo my 4 years at HTHS I would take art each year. I feel like I just dipped my toes in the water of possibilities, but I wish I could have gone for a swim. It's upsetting because after this year I don't know if I will be able to take an art class similar, but I wish I could. My favorite parts of the year were still life drawing with charcoal, and molding and shaping the clay. I liked being able to create the things I saw in my head and have them actually look like what I wanted them to. I am going to miss this class next year, and a part of me wishes I failed so I would have a reason to stay and take it again.
The things I put in my time capsule really capture my interests. I added a bunch of random pictures I found in magazines of people I admire. People like Jennifer Lawrence who are both very talented and true to them self. I also added a ticket stub from Meet of Champs where I competed in jav. It was a big part of my senior year competing in jav and how far I made it through the season. I was proud of my self and I hope in the future I will have many other things I do that exceed my initial expectations. Lastly I added a note to my future self. That was the weirdest part of the whole thing. I wrote to myself about what was happening in my life at the time. I also wrote some encouraging things because I have no clue how my life is going to be in 10 years. Its strange thinking about if I could be married and possibly having kids by the time I open this box, or single and traveling or something. Who knows, but it's strange to think about. I decorated my box with things I enjoy doing. I like to sew so I added one of my pop art prints of thread and a button. I also added a cutout of a dress because I like to make clothes. I also added newspaper and teapots all around it because I think they are classy and I think classy should never go out of style.
