Were trying to work strongly to have the T's readily on demand to peers, classmates, teammates and teachers. Considering we've only sold to my moms patients and to our family members, we need to produce more T's and faster, and come up with new ways to promote our product. The hockey season is ending soon so we'd like to sell our hockey themed shirts to them as soon as possible. I want to put inspiring miracle quotes on the backs to show our positive vibes in all activities.

Olivia and I have planned a very hopeful and successful weekend. With our extra curricular activities it has been somewhat challenging to accomplish our goals. Tonight is our hockey team sleepover as an end of the season activity, Saturday morning we will go to practice at 10 and after we will have yet another Tshirt making session and if there's is a good quantity of time we may have some fun doing a photoshoot, not only for fun but to promote the Live In Color T's in a positive environment and bring some good vibes. My mom had also started to sell several shirts in her office to sell to her patients since some of the profits will be going towards them.

Today's blog post will be a reflection piece on the project, the year, my concerns and enjoyments. I greatly appreciate 20% of our time in class is strictly dedicated towards the individual students passion. It has inspired me as well as fellow classmates to pursue their dream. The thought of 20 time has really inspired me because every teenager and child tells themself "wow! When I'm an adult I'm going to do this with my life!" "I'm gonna do this when I'm an adult!" "When I'm an adult I'm going to be like so and so!" "I'm going to change the world when I'm an adult!" But us teens haven't thought about the now. Fear puts us into a state where we reserve our passions for the future. 20 time teaches us to act on our passions and strive in our happiest state.
One thing that may be concerning though is perhaps some students view 20 time as a grade and not as themselves living for what they love. Our project is called live in color and connects to 20 time because it teaches us to live in the present. Some people may even realize they don't enjoy their topic anymore or haven't realized how much effort should be properly put into their passion. Through 20 time some people may stumble upon new or additional enjoyments but some may lose their enjoyments and feel lost.
If I could change one thing about 20 time I'd think I'd put more thought into the project in advance so I knew I was on the right track but other than my personal adjustments I believe 20 time is a huge success!

In the past two weeks I have been out of school. Firstly I was sick with a viral infection and the second week was our break. So I've had some time to think of our next steps moving forward into our project. I've sketched a few designs that will hopefully be on our next tshirts. Olivia and I have designed a Floridian feel. The scenery and animals really have impacted our take on the project and believe it will bring a positive example of what we are trying to accomplish because the scenes are bright and sunny and I significant because so is life and we can overcome any obstacle if we really try. So the bright, fun patterns bring happiness.
Olivia had come up with some new ideas and realizations that we will incorporate into our speech at the end if the year. We are making an effort to stick with our Evernote books because we have strived with them in use. We had also designed a skyline that can be inspirational because we reach new heights every day we believe in our efforts. It's important the shirts are somewhat inspiring because that's our project. For others and ourselves to be inspired!

We haven't worked on the tshirts for a while now but in the time period we haven't, we've gotten quite a bit done. Our new schedule for this project is much more helpful than how unorganized we had been at the start. First we get inspired and hot down ideas, meet with our mentors and think of how our current feelings can impact our essay, but our supplies and make our shirts.
We have many people to sell these shirts too being so involved in sports, we can appeal the shirts to our hockey team and in the spring the lacrosse team. I hope our team would be happy to support us and enjoy the T's as well. If luck to out a hockey theme and an inspirational quote and who knows it may become spirit wear.
One thing we need to work on is our Instagram, we haven't been keeping up with it lately and I believe it will really help us succeed in selling more shirts.
I'm excited to go to Florida this break to be inspired by beachy happy scenes!

Olivia and I hadn't got much accomplished this week for our 20 time because we have been extremely busy. But this weekend Olivia and I had gone to Chicago for our team hockey trip! It has been so exciting and we shopped till we dropped! Every where I turn I seem to be inspired with design because in Chicago I'm inspired to make a skyline pattern representing unity for the T's. I'm excited to have yet another t-shirt making session hopefully in the upcoming week.
In Chicago, we had a blast! From 5 hours of sitting on a bus to strolling down michigan avenue and visiting a comedy club. I feel much closer to my team and the sport I love which reminds me now of how much I love my 20 time project after making the puzzle pieces for into the project I have also felt more connected to our work and dedication and I am motivated to keep moving through full force and maybe even continue this project well after the year ends.
Olivia and I have grown so much for this duration of the school year through our activities and classes such as this one. I'm proud to have such an amazing opportunity to express my ideas and talents In creative and positive format.

This week Olivia and I have discussed our speech for the end of the year. We will discuss our learning experience and our troubles and achievements through this bumpy project. We realized working together isn't such a terrible idea considering in the future, we will have to learn to depend on other along with ourselves being independent. But we will rely on others because we have to and not because we want to. It had been difficult because sometimes we end up goofing off but recently we have learned to pay attention and work wisely. With that being said we know we have come so far from the beginning of the year and that is the purpose of this long term assignment.
We not only realized what we've learned and how it will help us in the future but we've also learned the importance of creativity and that spark of imagination that ignited even neither inside both of us. The creative works have brought out the best in us and have truly given us a break from the stressful school work that have clouded our creativity.
We have also learned from our mentors with how all these things factor into the real world and affect us. We hope our actions will be appreciated and reached by the end of the year with the two organizations that will be donated to. Knowing we have eachother to lean on for support or to pick up eachothers slack is a good feeling to have. We know what we need to do in order to be successful. Our mentors have taught us what makes a business successful and worthy and have encouraged us with advice and wise words. I'm ecstatic to continue with the project and happy we haven't given up. We will succeed if we keep the same positive attitude.

This week Olivia and I had accomplished very little and decided to take off a bit of time from our 20 time until after midterms. But I have been thinking of some new ideas. The next two weeks are going to be rough studying for midterms and such. Usually I'm in calumet the weekend before midterms which never impacted my study habits in a positive way for midterms. So this year I won't be going to calumet which will boost me in my studies and be very helpful. I have struggled with my study habits in the past and still have not found the right methods for me that work best.
After midterms we will engage in our 20 time full speed. And I believe much more enjoyment will come of it after the stress has passed. We had figured out how many shirts need to be sold in order to reach our goal. For us to earn $1500 we have to sell 100 shirts for $15 for the Alzheimer's association and seasons if life.
The video we had watched last Friday had really inspired me to find the true meaning and source of enjoyment for our project to perform an outstanding speech.
