I feel like on a quite smaller scale, this is what I am doing. Deliberately doing something scary, and having fun with it; making the best out of it. Now, onto a couple things I did this past week.
This week, our school was hosting it's annual artfest created for art students to display and sell their work. My photography teacher had mentioned something about volunteering to work at it and do face painting for little kids that come in. Not knowing anything about it, or anyone that was signing up, I agreed to doing it. I'm not the best at going into a situation blindly not knowing what to expect or who will be there so this wasn't the easiest thing for me to do. Not to mention, I don't have much experience with volunteer work. It ended up being quite fun and I'm glad I pushed myself to do it because it was a good learning experience.
After a brutal winter, we are finally starting to get a little bit of sun and not so freezing weather. As a result of this, more people are out and about enjoying the sun, so I thought I should too. Last summer, I purchased a penny board with the greatest of intentions. After some practice, I picked up the basics of it but after a long winter, I practically forgot everything I had learned. I took it upon myself to utilize the warm weather and try to go for a ride. This didn't go as well as planned. As I mentioned before, there are many people out and about, which means there were more witnessed to my failure. There were some slight injuries involved but luckily I didnt break my neck or something dramatic like that. When it comes to things involving coordination and balance, it usually doesn't come naturally to me, taking into considerations my lanky body and awkward posture but I made it alive and only slightly embarassed.
