“What time is it? SPRING BREAK TIME…” Nah, it doesn’t really flow. That’s cause there’s still a week until the break… One week, that’s all! But before I throw all of my papers into the air and shimmy out of the school building breaking into song, I wanna talk about a thing called “Destination Imagination”. If I were to explain it all, it would take up ten posts, so you can click here to learn more about it. I’m going to talk about my experience with DI, and, yeah… Enjoy.
Near the beginning of the school year, my class and I were introduced to Destination Imagination, and were told we would be participating whether we liked it or not. We were split into four teams of about 6 people, and assigned to different team focuses. I was put into the scientific category, where, in short, we had to camouflage one person in our group and create a skit to revolve and display different camouflage methods. We decided to name our group “The Camo Flock”.
It was a very long and hard working process, from planning the different elements of our costumes and skit, going out and buying supplies within our budget, and painting…lots of painting.
During this whole process, my group and I knew that I wouldn’t be able to attend the presentation day, as I was leaving for a two week vacation a few days before the big day. We did a great job at planning around this, so I could still contribute to the project, even though I wouldn’t be there to perform with my friends.
We even won a few ribbons, and won first place for the instant challenge and our team challenge. Even though the group may be thinking I abandoned them and that I wanted to get out of it, I was so happy for their success, and they did so well without me.
And that’s all I really have to say about DI. I know I was brief and short, but as I said before, it would take ten or more posts to describe the stress, laughter, and craziness of the Camo Flock. But I do have a few videos of our performance, there might be a few cut out parts, but otherwise, here it is:
