It’s Just One Bad Day…

There will always be bad days, but they don’t last forever. This is just a quick video I found that inspired me and gave me a new way to take on those bad days that we all dread. I suppose we must take the good with the bad, but that doesn’t mean we can let the bad take over our emotions and our lives. One bad day may seem terrible, but that’s just what it is, one day, out of many. The pain and anger from one bad day is temporary, there will be better days. I hope this video is as moving for you all as it was for me! Have a great day and remember to spread some kindness, you beautiful people!

DIY: The Start

I recently joined four of my classmates in our DIY project (which you can read more about here). In a nutshell, we are planning to create a documentary focusing on the problems that people face in society. We are going to be going to public places and conducting interview with people that we meet. In addition, we will be making another video to show the process of making our documentary, our obstacles, our thoughts on it, etc. With this project, we are really hoping to encourage people to be kinder to each to each other, because everyone has their own challenges and obstacles to overcome.

Progress:

As of right now, we are still planning out the things we need to get done. We plan on doing some filming during Thanksgiving break. However, before we can film anything, we have many preparations we need to complete such as writing a consent form for those we are interviewing, finding equipment to use, setting up a calendar of deadlines, etc. My job is to take care of equipment so I plan on teaching all of my group members how to use the equipment from BBN, the video production class at school that I am in. My group and I have realized how much work and effort is needed for this project, which is relatively big and time-consuming. Therefore, we all agree to make time for the project, and make an effort to be part of the team. In addition, I personally discovered that I am very much of a control freak and I am actually stressing out a bit too much over this project. However, I am learning to be part of the team and share the responsibilities as well as the worries with my team members.

Finding Kind

Currently in English class, we are starting to read The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. While reading Chapter 2, I noticed that even in this time setting that women were harshly criticizing each other and bashing one another; granted Hyster committed a crime, but I don’t think that that gives the women in the town rights to judge her because they don’t know the back story of Hyster’s situation and what actually happened. Recently I watched a documentary called ” Finding Kindness” and it talked about how females tend to judge each other and bully one another simply because it is in our nature. I found this documentary to be highly interesting and think that everyone, even males, should see it! It highlights how we are all victims of bullying and judgement, yet we, ourselves, still give that same hurtful treatment towards others. It baffles me how this happens because we all know how hurtful it is to be called names and to be talked about behind our backs, and yet we still do it. So much hurt and tears would end if we would all realize that we are all on the same team and instead of putting each other down, we should be helping one another. I hope that one day, people will start to truly treat other the way they want to be treated because nothing is going to improve in society unless we ourselves change. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all; it’s that simple.
