So, its been about 3 weeks since the start of break and I must say it has been extremely productive. It is amazing what you can do when you don’t have TV, great stuff, haha. I said I would talk about my Bokashi compost starter bin a little more, so I just want to say that it has been simple and easy, and that I couldn’t ask for anything better. It doesn’t smell and the fermentation has begun. I have found a garden close by to take the compost and the guy was more then happy when I told him it was from a Bokashi, so must be a good choice 🙂
I started my recycled paper project and it is going swimmingly. It takes a little time to get the thickness just right but when you do, the possibilities are endless! You can add anything you want to the paper: grass, dried flowers, glitter, images or paint. Really fun activity to do with anyone, kids especially. At the end of August or beginning of September I am going to teach a class in the Melbourne CBD. We are going to have some fun at the beginning of spring and even introduce people to some origami!
The palette project I wanted to do is still in the beginning stages because I got sick, but I reckon I’ll bust it out next week just before break is finished. I have a pretty wild idea for it and will post pictures when it is complete 🙂
Also, and finally, I started my volunteering. I am now in the high level dementia wing and I think its going to be challenging, yet rewarding. I will be associating myself with the art room, and hope to start a little painting group for some of the residents.
Its been a great break so far, and the last 10 days won’t be a waste either. DJ competition in Brisbane to go support my friend, badminton, yoga, meditation, and who knows what else! Stoked for semester 2 to begin and I hope that any student reading this is ready for another big push of reading, homework and assignments. Thanks, be aware and eat with care 🙂
