Tracing My Family History!

So for my Civil War FYS class, yes I’m talking about it again, we were assigned to trace one of our grandparents’ lineage. So I started working on it yesterday and to my surprise, I have ancestors from Ireland! Evidently my great-great-great grandfather emigrated from Ireland during the 1870s! What makes it even more funny is that when the Civil War reenactor came to our class and asked us who had Irish ancestry, I almost raised my hand as a joke. But turns out I wouldn’t have been lying!

Tomorrow in my Aesthetics and Design class we are going to do a project where we have to fill out a silhouette of ourselves using only cutout colors from magazines and books. Let me start off by saying it is harder than it sounds! We’re going to be sitting in front of a projector and try to sit really still while our partner traces us. Hopefully I sit still enough and hopefully it is not as awkward as I think it will be! We also post our projects and assignments on our class blog. You can see it here!

Also, just a reminder, there are FOUR days until Spring Break!

Random Video of the Day:

So I just happened to stumble upon this video on Youtube and turns out, I’m in it! You can see me and all my awkwardness at 1:40-1:45
