Day 12: Tie but no Dye and Quote of the Day

Today were given 3 quotes to write about. The quote that I have chosen is "Discipline yourself and others will not need to." I believe that this quote means that, if you always use your manners and stay kind, then other people will not need to remind you about doing so. This is a very good skill to learn so that in the financial world you will not need to be reminded about discipline. In the financial world if you are not behaving properly at work then you are most likely going to be fired. This quote is a sign to teach everybody to do what is right so that other people will not need to correct you all the time.  

Instead of the whole group going for a practice hike, half of the group went to a Tie Dye store. Sadly we were not able to Dye our artwork but we all still had an experience that we might not get to do again. The process started of with all of us picking a piece of cloth with a picture imprinted on it. There was a bunny, a couple of moths and a whole lot of flowers. In my eyes I assumed that they were all the same difficulty and therefore chose the bunny because of its cuteness. Little did I know that if I had chosen the flower my work would have been done 2 times faster. Now you might be asking yourself " why would it be easier?" the answer is because the flower is symmetrical and the bunny isn't therefore I had the hard job. Although I had the hard job I enjoyed myself. I was finding sewing a very fun thing to do, except for the part were you poke yourself with the needle, the part were the string comes out the needle, the part were you loose string, the part were.... I think you get the point. Although people say there are so many downsides of sewing, without those silly mistakes there would be no fun in it at all. 

The next step of the process was to start sowing on the dotted lines that make the bunny picture. It took us all about 1 hour to sow and for some people (me) it took 15 minutes more. By the end of our time there we were aloud to buy some of the pieces that the owners of the place made. I was so excited I ran upstairs and picked out my piece I wanted to buy. I ran back down, only to realize I had forgot my wallet. I decided that I could come back and buy a piece later. Now that people who wanted to buy something had bought that something it was now time to Dye. " Sorry everybody, we do not have enough time to dye our work. Thankfully the owners have decided to help us by dyeing our work, and will bring our pieces of work to where we stay." said Mrs. Mai. After Mrs. Mai had gave the announcement some of us were bummed out, but I didn't care. Why? Well because I was playing catch with a little kid that seemed bored. He tossed me the ball then I gave him the ball, then he would kick it. It was a really fun day today. I hope I see the little kid again.

Bunny and you!!!

LOL.. I laughed reding your journal today, awesome, looks like you are bringing the humor back in your writing and you are settling well. Tie & Dye question- I am assuming you are sowing so that when you dye, there is the pattern of the bunny. but what kind of thread do you use, does it have wax on it so that the cloth does not absorb the dye in the place where you have sowed it? This tie and dye sounds so much like the tie and dye that is done in another part of ASIA- India!! I hope you took the picture of the kid with whom you played!!!

My name is Aniketh. I am a 12-year-old eight grade student from SASPD, and this is my second year living in Shanghai. I have one little brother named Abhinav who is currently going to 3rd grade. My first year of living in Shanghai has been very exciting, because I have been given many more opportunities to learn and improve my skills as a student and as a person. I have already learnt more about the Chinese culture and heritage. A little bit about myself, I am very interested in sports and in education. I play soccer, football, and street hockey. When it comes to education I am very interested in politics and what goes on around the world, therefore I am currently apart of MUN. I am also interested in Music, I play the violin in the Intermezzo orchestra. I am very happy to have gone to XiZhou and experience the Microcampus program. I hope that future Microcampus groups will enjoy this village just as much as we all did.
