This project, already, has had more thought put into it than Project 1. I'm creating an organization! It both scares and thrills me at the same time. This project will require a lot of time management, which has been a major problem of mine.
To the left, I have compiled together some of the things I have to do. This doesn't even include the fact that I have 14 quizzes left to do and have to read, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.
Needless to say, I have been living off of coffee these past weeks.
Sometimes, because of how grueling this project is, I want to cut down the things I want to do. I always have to remind myself that if I do that, I would be going against what Apollo is all about. Apollo isn't supposed to be easy. It's supposed to make you think and connect with the community. If I let go of some of my ideas and make things easier, it won't help me in this class.
After the events of yesterday, I have decided that I need to do this project. No matter how many refills of coffee I will end up needing, I need to voice my opinions.
I was talking to Mr. Ward the other day about my nerves of posting something so personal, and when I told him about what I wrote, he had a very interesting perspective on it. While I agreed with what he thought, I agreed only to an extent. It was then that I realized that having this organization won't only spread awareness to kids in Apollo, but to my teachers as well.
The fact is, my opinions and thoughts differ because of my own personal experience. Perhaps, I will write about it one day, but today, I simply just need my opinions to be heard.
My self doubt needs to be pushed aside and I need share a new way of thinking. I'm not trying to express that my way of thinking is the only right way, but I am trying to get people to look at things in a different perspective. With this journey, I know that I will have to do the same.
So, I raise my coffee cup to whoever's willing to read through my journey.
Perhaps, soon, we will all become self aware and think differently.
