As I sit here writing my final my blog post, my project is almost done and I am running out of things to do. Over the last few week,s I have finished my placards, hung test photos with fishing wire and binder clips, and gotten all my photos test printed.
After a mental breakdown in front of Mr. Hansen, I have decided that the theme of the exhibit is imperfection. Winnipeg is not a perfect city and my photography exhibit reflects that. The photographs will be slightly grainy, and the placards aren’t straight.
When I come back from the break, I will write the English Provincial exam. Then take the last two to write my final presentation speech and put together my exhibit.
The exhibit will be showcased here at the Propel final presentation nights. If you want to hear more about my Propel project, check out my Legacy Artefact and come see my final presentation on January 25th from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
Speaking of final presentation nights, the Propel program is almost over. I have the same feeling of anxiety and fear I had coming into this program but for different reasons. The fear and anxiety knowing that in just a few weeks, I will no longer spend every day with the most wonderful friends that I have laughed and cried with. But most importantly, these are people that have helped me grow and become a better person. They have all made a big impact on my life.
This program has helped me come out of my comfort and given me the chance to get to know my community. It has given me a chance to know what it feels like to succeed in school and has better prepared me for my future.
Yes, I know that the blog post was sappy and sad, but goodbyes are hard and messy. I am going to leave you with the wise words of Winnie the Pooh:
“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
