Blogpost #3

So after thinking about my project for another week, I feel like I'm sort of back where I started. I thought I wanted to do something involving random acts of kindness. Obviously I love to help people and make people smile, but for some reason I haven't had the inspiration to get started. Like Mr. P said, if you are not interested in the project now, it will be much worse as the year progresses. I really enjoyed the Soul Pancake youtube videos that we watched on friday, and I am going to watch some more to try to get more inspiration and get a better idea of what I want to do. I need to think really hard of something I am really passionate about, and I plan to have my project decided for sure by next week. I really just need to do some soul searching to find out what I really want to spend my year doing.

Blogpost #2

So it's already been a whole week since my first blogpost, and I think I have narrowed it down to one general idea. I think it would just be too hard to accomplish something with travel at this point in my life, so I am going to try to do something involving random acts of kindness. Lots of people are encouraging me to do this, and since I really want to do something for the benefit of others (instead of myself), I think I will do this. I am not exactly sure what the big goal will be at the end of my project, or even who my main target of this project will be, but at least I have my general idea. Maybe I will do some act of kindness every week and build up to something larger. Hopefully next week I will have more details and thoughts on my project and get started.

Blogpost #1

       Hello! My name is Maddie Thompson and this is my first 20 time project blogpost. So for my first blogpost I am supposed to talk about my project, but I don't exactly have a project yet. Although almost everyone else has their projects figured out, and I should too, I don't want to rush and pick a project I won't like. I think I will be much better off taking my time figuring out what I'm really passionate about, so I can get the full experience out of 20 time. 
       I am having trouble thinking of things I am passionate about, but I have been doing a lot of research and I have a few scattered ideas. One is something to do with helping others randomly in someway, like a random act of kindness. I don't really know how I could make a set goal for the end of this kind of project, and I need to work out a lot of details. Another very broad idea I had came to me when I was looking on my Pinterest account. I have a board titled "get out there" where I repost many different pictures of places all over the world. I really like to travel and I feel like it would be really fun to explore exotic and unique places different from the same old Michigan. I don't know how I would be able to go anywhere, considering I can't drive and don't have any money, but at least it is an idea. As I said, I am very scattered at this moment, but I know I will figure something out if I just keep looking and take my time!
