How could something so tiny be so brutal. The tiny little fly was buzzing around my face for what felt like hours. Something that only little fairies can hear what was making me want to kill my self. The fly was not leaving me its like I was a massive pile of rotten fruit and i was being invaded by this one fly. Did I really smell that bad? I had tried to run away many times but this one annoying fly wasn’t going to leave my sight. If only there was a way to get ride of it.

Art Reflection 2015

 

This term in performing arts we made stop motion videos in groups of three. In my group I had Melina, Alicia and myself. It was the first time that any of us had used the stop motion app on the I pads. Before we started we had a couple of lessons on stop motion videos and how they work. I enjoyed using the app and it was very fun experimenting with our video to make it as real life as possible. My group worked very well together. We included each others ideas and listened to each other when new ideas had come up. In the end our piece of work was finished and everyone was happy with the end result. The only thing we would have changed would have been taking some more time on the backdrop and the props to make it more realistic. Overall I liked doing this activity during this term because it was different and it was a bit exciting to make your own stop motion movies, but I would like to do a bit more acting/dancing.

Trickling water

Running down rocks,

Drip, drip, drip

Water soaked in my socks.

 

Memorizing views

Looking off the bridge;

The taste of water

Like my cold fridge.

 

I have a fear

Of deadly heights,

But when I’m here

I don’t get a fright.

I have all this money to spend but I have no idea what to do with it all. I can’t drive a car and I don’t have a credit card so. Maybe I could make a bank account and put my money in there until I do have a car or a credit card! Once I get to the age when I am allowed a credit card I will have so much money in my bank because I have put all my savings in the bank from previous years I will become rich! Maybe,  I could become a child millionaire.
