After four months here at Propel, I’m starting my fifth and final upload. I admit, I’m definitely going to miss naming all my blog posts after High School Musical songs, which my teachers have failed to realize until the very moment they read this. They questioned me for my titles, and a few points may have been lost because of it, but I stuck to my theme.
All jokes aside, my heart sinks at the near thought of leaving this program to head back to Béliveau. As much as I like my homeschool, Propel has been life-changing for me in so many ways. With 20-something new, amazing friends, and fantastic teachers who have taught us not only material in the school curriculum, but also helpful life lessons, this semester has been a dream.
You may be asking yourself, Maya, how is your project going? It’s definitely going. On the other hand, my Bohemian Rhapsody PowerPoint, which Mr. Hansen likes to call a “music video”, is going fantastically. You’re probably confused by that statement, that’s okay, come drop in during my Final Presentation for an explanation and an example of the PowerPoint.
As fun as all this joking around has been, my project is actually coming along quite smoothly. I have done an interview for my project every day this week, so far, I have over two hours of audio to listen to for my “Impact and Legacy of Rock Music” article. I’ll have to do A LOT of writing over the break, which may be slightly difficult as my family and I are heading to Arizona and California for two weeks, but I’ll make it work. Upon returning, I’ll pop the writing into Adobe InDesign, add some photos, prep it for printing, and make some copies to be handed out during my Final Presentation evening.
If you’d like to hear some more depth about my project, I will be finishing up the evening with my presentation on Monday, January 28th from 6:30PM – 8:30PM. You’ll be hearing from me, a clothing up-cycler, a musician, an artist, and three video game developers. Do not miss it! For now, check out my Legacy Artefact to hear a bit more about my project.
Thank you all so much for following my magazine thus far and thank you to my wonderful classmates and teachers for this semester.
We’re all in this together.
