This week, we were assigned to answer a few questions about 20 time. What has been our favorite and least favorite parts of the project, as a whole? What would we do differently about our project, specifically?
My favorite part about 20 time has actually been the blog writing. Even though a lot of people don't like the blogs at all, I feel as if they give me an incentive to actually do something with my project. It doesn't feel good to write about doing nothing with my project for the week, so I love being able to talk about how much more I am beginning to get dedicated to the flute once again. I honestly love playing the flute, but it does seem to take some type of incentive to get off the couch and to start practicing.
My least favorite part about the project is probably the very limited amount of things I can actually do to spend my 20 time class period on Friday. It seems like most people just sort of wait for the period to be over, since the only thing they can really do is read/comment on other student's blogs. I wish that we were actually able to do school work during the period, so that we could use the time we saved getting homework out of the way, to work on our projects at home. On the other hand, I do understand why this is not allowed; it would probably just turn into another tutorial, for most of us, if we were allowed this time to do homework.
If I could change something about my project in particular, I probably would have quit the cupcake business sooner. To be honest, I knew from the beginning on the project that we had about a 2% chance of succeeding, and I think it was kind of silly to even start it. Our schedules just didn't make any since to start a catering business, and we wouldn't even be able to sell cupcakes in school. I completely understand that risk taking does pay off, but I think that if you are going to take a risk, you should probably have at least a sliver of faith that you will succeed. For example, it's a little ridiculous to take an AP math class if you can barely pass a traditional math class.
