Well I have finished my first draft of my first assignment last nite. I just now finished the analysis of the stories I had to read. They are both due tonight at 11:59. My first story is the one about my time down in California when I was in the Army. I was hesitant about doing this piece because it delves into some really personal details I felt needed to be explored. I wrote about drunken stupers where I could not remember anything, what I consider the my official loss of virginity and explain why I use the term Official. The road trip I took with sort of friend Sam and the woman I want to get with Angel.
I will be posting this story along with other writing projects I am putting in my portfolio in mid-July. I do not want to do it now because I don’t want to plagiarize myself and this way I will be forced to take my time to rewrite it as well.
I will be getting out of my house this weekend with my camera to take photos. I am thinking of starting a survey of the week. This would be a way for my followers to help keep me on the ball here on my blog. It would also be a way for me to explore Minnesota to broaden my horizons a bit. I would look up four different places to go shoot and have you all vote on where you would like to seem my point of view.
By July I should hopefully have my crowdfunding campaign set up for a study abroad trip I was invited to go on. I have a choice of South Africa or China. This class is for people going into the Social Sciences, studying diplomacy. I have never traveled out of the country before except to head up to Vancouver, British Columbia for a weekend. I was planning on trying to use my scholarship money to take a trip to Australia this past May. But, as always life likes to kick me in the ballsack and I had to cancel the trip. I will get to travel to different places around the world though. This is something I have wanted to do as a kid, though my family could not afford it at the time. Back then it was Germany I wanted to go to for class. Now, I that I am in my forties, I want to see the world.
If anyone knows how to set one up a crowdfunding campaign and could help me it would be much appreciated. I have an idea of what to write and maybe a video for it. The Issue I have is I have no idea what I could give people as a reward for donating at different levels. What can a poor man give to those willing to help him achieve a dream? Please leave a message in the comment if you have any ideas.
