This assignments instructions are:
1. Using a timer, write what you’re thankful for in just 10 seconds! Anything and everything that you can think of being thankful for is fair game, but stop at 10 seconds.
2. Share what you’ve written on a blog, wiki, or some other digital space that others can comment on.
3. Bonus! Complete a 10 second drawing of yourself to accompany your writing, inspired by the November 19th, 2012 Daily Create!
I am thankful for:
My life my mom my dog my boyfriend, the existence of video games, and lemonade.
The Story Behind the Story
I honestly think this was a test of my ability to type fast, rather than thinking fast. Either way it was stressful in both regards but I feel that it revealed to me what means the most in my life. I have not gone a day without any of the things I am thankful for. With the exception of lemonade, sometimes I’m in a juice mood. I think it would be fun to do this activity again in the future to see what comes to mind first. Given the kinds of things I listed though, I don’t see my answers changing for many years, I would have listed these same exact things 5 years ago.
For my 10 second drawing, I drew myself in green. I thought it was a fun way to capture very quickly what I feel that I look like, but not actually providing much detail to what I actually look like. It is me, but is still pretty anonymous. My boyfriend, whom I mentioned in the 10 second writing challenge, saw my drawing and liked it so much that he wanted me to draw him as well. We have made these pictures our profile pictures on discord, so this activity really has become part of my identity online!
