So for a class, I have to do an Independent Learning Project. When I first heard about this I wanted to do something that I could easily do while watching Netflix. As I mentioned in one of my earlier blogs, I am a TV junkie. For this learning project it has to be something that I’ve never done before. So as I’m sitting on my bed I couldn’t think of anything. So then I call the only person I know who could help think of ideas, my mom. I call her up and I explain what is needed to do. She suggests crochet. When she first mentioned this I was skeptic. I have never been very good with my hands. But as she kept talking about crocheting, I was getting more and more excited. Crocheting is something that I can do my whole life and it’s also something that my mom and I can do together as we sit and talk when I’m home for breaks. So now that I knew what I will be doing the next thing is thinking of what to make. I told my mom that it had to last all semester. Even though she mentioned a pot holder. I’m thinking of making a blanket. In my opinion no one can have too many blankets. I’m a person that gets stressed out really easily so I’m also hoping that by taking up crochet, it will be a nice way to relax and get my mind off the stress of college. I am also hoping that I can teach my students some way to help deal with the stress of life. I know that I will be an elementary teacher and some people may not think that there is a lot of stress associated with being an elementary student, but to the students that is the most stressful part of their life at the moment and not all of it is just school stress. We also have to think about their home life stress. I think that it will help my students if I teach and discuss ways to deal with stress. So for my class I have to spend approximately 2 hours a week learning how to crochet.
Throughout the semester I will be posting pictures and blogs about the progress of my project. So now I’m going to ask you readers, what would like to learn if you could learn anything? What are your favorite Netflix/Hulu shows to watch (I may need reccommendations) and the last question, What do you do to unwind and relax? Blog you later!
