Romeo + Juliet Act II: Critical Response

Based on our readings so far, I agree with the statement that Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is one of “‘infatuated children’ engaging in ‘puppy love’”. When the two “star-crossed lovers” first meet eyes, Romeo claims that he has fallen in love with the young girl, even though they have never once spoken to each other. He is drawn to Juliet by her beauty, just as he was drawn to his previous.. Read More

Zip DoL #3

Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give yourself at the start of the project? A piece of advice I would give myself at the start of the project is to not dismiss my “bad ideas” because they may be useful later. I tend to be VERY hard on myself (I’m sure most of us can relate to this), and at the beginning, I completely discarded most of.. Read More

Zip DoL #2

Take a moment to reflect on your inquiry plan. Do you need to make any revisions to your original plan? If so, why? If you haven’t made any changes to your plan, why do you feel you have been so successful in sticking to it? Zip has been going fairly well so far, although I definitely will need more time than I thought to complete my short film. I was.. Read More

360° Leadership

One of the main concepts from the 360° Leadership lessons that I can apply to my everyday life is “Learn to lead with the restrictions others have placed on you”. Often when I’m in a group and not in a leadership position, I give up all hope of being able to lead. This leadership lesson taught me that I can lead from the middle as well, and it all starts with understanding/valuing.. Read More

Zip DoL #1

Since I haven’t accomplished much so far other than a bit of research and my proposal, I’m not able to answer any of the questions given to us. Here is a short update! I have just begun to dive into my research, and so far I have found that the most valuable sources to look at are actual short films rather than websites. Although websites contain important information as well,.. Read More

Zip Proposal: Short Film

Guess what? It’s that time of year again! For my Zip project in Grade 9 I chose to write short stories, but this time I would like to explore a different type of media, and create an experimental short film about my experiences as a member of the LGBT community.   “What are the most important aspects to consider when creating an experimental short film?   I chose this area..

DoL 2: Speech Drafts & Final Copy

I decided to post my speech drafts and final copy as a document of learning! I’m actually incredibly proud of my speech, I really like the way it turned out. Good luck to everyone with their learning centres and the grade 10s with their speeches 🙂   Final Speech: Where does it hurt the most? I’ve pondered this question for most of my life, and after searching through the painful.. Read More

DoL: Eminent Interview

I conducted my eminent interview a while ago, with an openly “queer” singer/musician named Mathew! Myself and a few of my friends met him at a concert last year (he was the opening artist), and I decided to reach out to him for my interview. He’s extremely busy at the moment, so we conducted the interview over email. My eminent person is a gay rights activist and although Mathew is.. Read More

3 Wise Nugs

Be open to trying things – even if you never pictured yourself doing them in the past – as they might turn out to be something you enjoy/are good at. Witnessing trauma and illness at work everyday prepares you for minor things that may have scared you before. Helping others deal with emotional trauma is emotionally traumatic for you as well.
