What I did at the Art Jam

On Saturday I volunteered at the Seeds For Autism Art Jam. I came early so I hung out with my friends and looked at the schedule. When the event started I went to the make and take area and showed visitors how to make the caterpillars out of pom poms, glue and clothespins. Eventually I had to head up front to pass the buckets to the people who had too much merchandise to hold. Soon the fashion show started. I really liked Camille, Sydney and Sonja. Camille was beautiful and had skills. Sydney was sweet and stylish and Sonja was confident. Then it was time for me and the guys to do some comedy. Jeff sang a funny song written by Gilbert and Sullivan. Jake read some funny stuff Ronald Reagan said once and I used my special gift of making jokes about anything. I ate some lunch with Camille, and then Amy needed help with some improv about going green. I had a good time spending time with my friends. I enjoyed helping the kids make caterpillars. I liked petting the guinea pigs. I got to meet my friends parents. I enjoyed doing my comedy act people liked my jokes. Then eventually I went home.

 

Promoting Third Thursday Sale

A group of my peers and I as well as our instructor went out to promote our sale for Thursday April 20 2017. We went around to local businesses to promote the event. We went to a tattoo parlor, a gallery and a furniture shop. We told the owners of the shops about what we do as well as the sale. One of the people we interacted with was a woman who works with nonprofits to raise money for them.I stepped out of my comfort zone when passing out flyers to businesses. It was weird for me because I have never done anything like that before. It was cool to interact with the different managers to promote our sale but it was different and unique experience for me.

To Have the Courage and Faith

When life is either good or bad, sometimes we have the courage to do what’s right, to be a team member or trustful friend: if someone is having a bad day, you can have a talk of comfort.

To have a positive confidence is to have great time with friends or family, to keep in touch or have a sense of humor.

Doing this is a way of never thinking anger and hatred, always think joy and happiness.

My Experience at the SEEDs Holiday Sale

seeds-holiday-sale

The Holiday Sale at Seeds For Autism was a open house event to showcase the work we do here. The participants were here helping out and showing their families and customers the products we make. The participants helped sell items as well.

My first Holiday sale was a cool experience. It was fun to see the work we did showed off in a open house event and to sell the products my peers and I have produced.

I have only been at SEEDs a few weeks and this was my first sale but I had a lot of fun overall.  About 10:00 a.m I started out making and demonstrating the gingerbread ornaments. This was my first time making these ornaments but it was easy as soon as I got the steps down and I was able to demonstrate it pretty well.

After I had completed the gingerbread station at 11:00 a.m, I walked around for about 10 min. At about 11:10, I went to work in the jewelry department. I helped out the customers there when they had questions on the products as well as repricing things that did not have a price. I worked there from 11:10 till 11:30 then we broke for lunch.

In between things, my parents came in and looked around for about 20 min. About a hour later, my grandmother and my cousin came in and I helped them by showing them around. I introduced my Grandma and my cousin to Amy and to Jonathan. Then at 3:00 I helped Nathaniel clean up the cucumbers and the acorn cookies tables while waiting for my Mom to come pick me up.

My experience at my first Seeds open House was really fun. I got to learn about how a sale works and how to interact with customers and peers in a store type of setting. I would like to do something similar soon.

The Batman

After the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Accountant, it’s been confirmed that Ben Affleck will indeed star, write, produce and direct the first Batman solo movie.

Since The Batman movie might take place before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this would be revealing that Batman was fighting crime for twenty years in Gotham. Ben had said in an interview that the film will be an original story: some rumors indicate that parts of the movie will take place in Arkham Asylum, meaning that the movie will be inspired by the Batman video game: Arkham.

I would say that would be awesome, New details around August; Ben Affleck posted a video teaser of Deathstroke, so that means Deathstroke will be the villain in Ben Affleck’s The Batman movie and will make an appearance in Justice League.

So my ideas for this movie are if Deathstroke will be the villain, they might as well bring in Maroni and Falcone who will play pivotal or small roles and even Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin, Black Mask and the Joker might participate on whatever their role is in the movie

But since there is no release for The Batman, it’s possible it will release on 2017 or 2018
