Present from the past

The year is 2034, I am 40 years old. I'm married and have two beautiful children. We just recently moved into a new house. It's big and very comforting. As we were unpacking I found the present in the closet of my room. I opened it and it's from the girl who used to live here before. She was a junior at the local high school down the street. There was a letter in it and it explained what this box was. It was a time capsule from her art class. As I looked through this box filled with memories I learned so much about her. She came from an average family. A mom and a dad and 3 sisters. She also played basketball for her high school team. They were South Jersey Group 1 champions in 2014. You could tell she loved it. I also saw pictures of her and her friends. She reminded me a lot like myself way back. After looking through this time capsule I was inspired to make one.

Goodbye Junior Year :(

I cannot believe this year already over. Art class has been so much fun this year. Junior year has been my best year. And art has been my favorite class. We did so much I couldn't believe how much it was until we were done. We did drawings, mixed media collage, and ceramics. My favorite part of the year was sewing my art book together. I love sewing my book together because I can look through all my art from this year and be amazed. It's been a great year and I'm so upset it's over. This was my last year of creative arts and next year I will be in ceramics.
