assignment du jour

an assignment i gave my summer campers today:

Line 1 - your first name
Line 2 - "It means" then 3 adjectives that describe you
Line 3 - "It is the number" then any number you choose
Line 4 - "It is like" describe a color but don't name it
Line 5 - "It is " and name something you remember experiencing with family or friends that makes you smile to recall
Line 6 - "It is the memory of" and name a person who is or has been significant to you
Line 7 - "Who taught me" 2 abstract concepts (such as "honesty")
Line 8 - "When he/she" then refer to something that person did that displayed the qualities in line 7
Line 9 - "My name is" your first name
Line 10 - "It means" and in 1-2 brief sentences state something important you believe about life.

and mine:

It means compassionate, sensitive and strong
It is the number 33
It is like sunset on fire
It is a candlelight dinner and being in love
It is the memory of my father
Who taught me how to do the very best I can
When he would settle for nothing less
My name is Maia
It means happiness and being kind to everyone

give it a try :)

it means saucy, ecclectic and enigmatic.
it is the number 13.
it is like a deep burning traped in a gem.
it is being kissed in the middle of a rainstorm.
it is the memory of my great grandmother.
who taught me that food solves all things as long as it is served with love.
when she feed as all even when we wernt hungry.
my name is amber.
it means being open and freem loving without boundries.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
