Learning from a Project: Comic Strips

It’s funny how when we have a plan in our minds we are determined that it’s going to succeed. However, when we are working on it, it seems to all fall apart and that’s what happened to my innovation project. For English class we had made an innovation project that would either elevate the school or somehow get people involved on certain things. Since the beginning of high school my mom pushed me to get into AP or honors classes. She talked to her friends who had their child teach me of which classes to take. Also, there’s this thing in Asian culture that forces their child to be extremely start or push them to take all these classes that they know so little of them. They don’t know that it may lead them to stress of even depression. It makes the child seem like a letter grade is WORTH YOUR WHOLE LIFE – but it’s not. Therefore, first I suggested that we should do something to influence upcoming freshman to take it easy. Then my other friends said, “Let’s make webcomics with real life photos!” and there we have it our own creation “INSPREAL COMICS”

BRAWL-ing, wait what?

Brawling was a very fun experience that I would never forget. I liked how in group we got to discuss about questions that were very interesting and deep. For example one of the questions that was hard for me to come up with various ideas was “When is it okay to put your own needs before someone else’s life?” This question you had to think deeply and thoughtfully because overall us, humans, are already selfish. However, when is it necessary? when is it a life or death matter? the only answer we came up with was when the person was on the verge of dying. It is true because what else can a person do when the other person is already dying. How much of a possibility is there that person to survive? It may sound cruel but that is reality. I know it’s easier to say than to actually experience it, but that’s life.
