Today in school for our blogging intensive we had, to go to another intensive that is similar in a way that we could connect to it. My blog topics are kind of a mix in personal life experiences and just things that I like or that interests me so anyway… the intensive that I’m blogging about today is called Eat, Pray, Love. My class mate and I were sent to that intensive room for 30minutes and we had to ask the students in there what their intensive was about. The students talked about happiness and how many people choose happiness over sadness but not really knowing that they are choosing it.
Their intensive was for two days , two nights and they travelled Upstate, New York camping for the past week to find out or.. you could say, get to know themselves and who they are as a person and with others. Their task today was to take a specific quote from a text that they’ve been reading these past few days and how that qoute resembles them or stands out to them in a way that they could grow from their experience.
I bet you all are wondering why am I writing so much about this topic and not my own. Well, its related to my blogging topic, because what I like to write about is personal experiences in life and so…the intensive Eat,Pray,Love was about getting to know who you are as a person by going through personal experiences with others in their life. To me.. when I went to the other intensive…. it was kinda awkward. my friend Jessica and I were sent to the group because we had similar topics to theirs. It was awkward because, we had walked in and just really didn’t know what to do. The two teachers of the intensive Mr. Mears and Mr. Ahmed were both talking to their students about their task today and how their experience have helped them to know themselves more as a person. Jessica and I were like ” what should we do…?” Lol we just walked inside the room and stayed quite for about 20mins…and we were there for about 30mins and asked a a few students what was it like for them being with a group of other students they didn’t really know so well.
So… yeah, they liked their intensive in a way that kind of made me want to have the same experience as them. But I actually am starting to like this intensive and today’s my last day experiencing it with the group of fun and interesting people with me going through similar experiences. Honestly… before I was assigned to this intensive I was kind of disappointed that I had this.. but know that i realize that it wasn’t all to bad and I’ve actually learned to not be so shy to go up to someone randomly and ask them a few questions or to take their picture for my blog. To me i’m happy with the intensive I was put in for this week, and I don’t think I’d change to another one if I could,because I actually enjoy writing blogs. 😀
