The items I put in my box are each special to me in a different way. Honestly I don't think a lot of them were special when I first got them but they are now. All these items make me really happy when I look at them. My personal 3 favorites are the silly bands, because looking at them reminds me of how grateful I was to my parents when I got them and it reminds me to appreciate them more. I put a tag from a pair of shoes I got this year, they are from Rue 21 and I got them for the first time I sang with the jazz band this year and went out of my comfort zone, the tag makes me kind of proud. And last i put a broken camera memory card that has all the first pictures I ever took on my first nice camera, I was taking those pictures when I started to consider photography as an occupation and it makes me really happy. It also reminds me of my sister and the strong bond we created this year and I can't wait to see the pictures 20 years from now.

This year has been one of my most enjoyable art classes ever. The assignments that we got were challenging and all the different areas of art we got to experience were very interesting. My favorite was absolutely the mixed media. At the beginning of each assignment I thought to myself that this would be the one that I wouldn't be able to do. But I am extremely pleased to say that I surprised myself every time and was proud of the work that I was putting out. The biggest thing I learned was not to doubt myself before we even got the materials to start working and to just go with the flow of my creative thoughts.
