Working on a project can seem pretty cut and dry. You’ve done all your learning now it’s just a matter of putting things together to share what it is you learned. Sharing a personal belief is different, there can be learning in the events leading up to the formation of a belief but when it comes to sharing the cut and dry version of the belief didn’t seem like it was going to be difficult for me. I’m not really a person to withhold certain beliefs from people, and my belief that everything happens for a reason is definitely one that I don’t withhold.
I thought that this project was going to be so cut and dry, not emotional or difficult. Once I got to working on it I became nervous that it wasn’t going to turn out right. I kept putting things where I thought they would fit but they didn’t feel right. Also as I worked I started to get more invested in the project.
Once I finally felt like everything was in the right spot and together, I was really wanted to show my mom and my sister. I wanted to show them, but once I got the chance to show them I was really nervous to show them because I was scared of what they were going to think of it. Making me realize that while my belief is solid, the feelings I had during the story that goes along with it is what made me nervous. Realizing that I have to share this with the whole class made the project more difficult than I thought it would be.
