Returning to another fulfilled Monday from the weekends, this is our last official week of Microcampus. Still, a lot of work needs to be, not just done, but thoroughly completed. Today was a very hard working day for me since I need to take huge responsibilities for our Service Learning project.

Today is Day 23 of Microcampus. Our Final Products are being reviewed by Mr. T's Peals of Wisdom. All the work that remains for Inquiry Work is my Reflection. I find it crazy that there are only 5 days left and that today is the last Sunday of the trip. After I get my Inquiry Work knocked out of the was, all that will remain is Service Learning.

December 11th , the 23rd day of Microcampus. Haha, yeah I am horrible with puns, I think I deserve a pun-ishment... (Drop the mic) Ok yeah enough with the bad puns, I will just jump to the pun-chline. Yeah, I am done, but the pun in the title was meant to say, that this may be the ending of Microcampus. It is not an ending to our lives, in shanghai and our lives. We keep talking about ending strong. But this is not an ending, it really is a new beginning. Yup, the most cliché thing that I can think of. Kind of true.

Today is Day 23 at Microcampus. I cannot believe that this is trip is almost over. It has gone by so fast. We only have a few more days left and then we go back. Today was a stressful day. I worked on the Inquiry Project. I finished my video and the reflection. I finished my introduction the other day. I am happy that this is over with now. I also worked on the story board for Service Learning.

Today is the last Sunday we have in XiZhou and also one of the most stressed out days of the whole trip. I am 100% finished with all my Inquiry Project work and halfway through the Service Learning work. I spend some time going out with the camera and taking pictures of the beautiful XiZhou with Colin and Kevin.

I have finished my Inquiry Project, I still need  to upload it to the website though. I have been busy with my Service Learning all day and I haven't had time. I have been working all day on my Service Learning project. I have not had much happen today other than working. Today is the end of our last weekend of the trip and I am surprised how fast it has all gone by. I am busy now so my journal will be really short today.

Today we are going to work on our Service Learning Projects. We are creating our story boards and those are what we use to show Mr. T what the flow of our actual finished product will be. We already finished half of the story board. What we have to do now is look at the videos that we took of our partner and translate the questions, then put those questions in the story board.

Today is our last Sunday of the trip, but it is not a very chill and empty day. It is in fact very fulfilled as we all want to build a strong ending to this trip. With only 4 more days left, we are all valuing every single day of this trip and trying to make the most of them. We need to end this trip on a high note and make the last bit of the memory truly enjoyable. The focus of today was mainly Service Learning, and there is still a lot of work to do. I am looking forward to our final video.

Today is day 22 of Microcampus. The highlight of my day was eating at the noodle place. For lunch, Claire, Lexi, Jerry and I all ate at a noodle place that served noodles that tasted like Ramen. The taste reminded me of home, and I much enjoyed it. Speaking of home, Emma C. has supported me this whole journey. Thank you Emma! With only a couple days left of Micorcampus, I have to remember to make the most of my experience because there is not a time that goes by that I am not thinking about the limited time I have left in Xizhou. The people here I are amzing and have open hearts.

Today I worked on my Sharing My Learning portion of my Final Product. I decided to make a video of me reading a letter that I wrote to my 70-year-old self. I hope that when I am 70-years-old I will read this letter and remember this experience. While in the process of making my video, I realized a lot about my experience and my feelings about it. I am really sad that the trip is almost over and I do not want to leave. I am really upset that the trip went by so quickly. I wish that the trip would last a few weeks more.

Today was a hardcore working and cleaning up day, I cleaned my room for an hour and filmed my Service Learning video with my partner. I finished my inquiry project video and the pearls of wisdom from Mr. T. I took many pictures in-house and out of the house

Today is day 21 of Microcampus! That means that we only have around a week left here in Xizhou. Not very much happened today because it was a normal schedule. I started to work on my Final Product Introduction. Tomorrow I will be starting on my Sharing My Learning where I will make a video of me reading my letter. I had a lot of work to do today so I was really busy. I checked all of my previous journals and went through my Phases. I updated anything that still needed to be updated.

December 10th, the 22nd day for Microcampus. Today the workload was pretty huge. The inquiry final product was supposed to be finished by tomorrow 10 AM. We would have an hour tomorrow, and that is it! I should've done a little more work yesterday but I did not think that the workload today would be this big. I am sort of a perfectionist but then again my standards for perfection are as low as they can be while still, I can call them "perfect".

Today is day 22 of Microcampus! Today is the last Saturday of the trip, and I spent pretty much the entire day working on my Final Product. It was completely worth it though, because now I am completely stress free and can edit the work in the hour we have tomorrow. The sharing my learning portion was the hardest because we had to not only write a script for a video, but record it and make it an iMovie.

Today we have been working on our inquiry project, it is due tomorrow and everyone has been trying to finish quickly. I am working on my video for the project as of when I am writing this. Also tomorrow we need to have our storyboard for our service learning project done. This weekend is very busy and we have to get a lot done.

Today is the last Saturday of our trip. This morning, our Service Learning group went over to our Service Learning partner's house to ask her some questions. We ate lunch at her house. In the afternoon, I spent all of my time working on my video. Yesterday, I spent most of my Inquiry Project time working on my introduction. Today, I wrote the script and recorded my voice. I also worked on the video but I am not finished yet.

I can't believe that the trip is almost over. Today I have a lot less stress because I have finished my Inquiry Project and I am going with Mr. T at 5:15 so that he can look over it and give me some pearls of wisdom. Hopefully the meeting goes well. I took almost all day today to finish the video and reflection.

Today is the last full Friday of our trip. We had our last end-of-the-week daily meeting. Today was also the last day of our SAS Essentials. We handed in our humanities, math, and science assignments. We also wrote our end of SAS Essentials report to our teachers. Next week SAS Essentials time will be spent on Service Learning. Today we also started working on our final project video, which means we had to write a script, record our voices, and put in pictures along with our voice.

We only have one week left of Microcampus! Time has flown by so quickly, and although we did accomplish a lot, we still need more time to finish our projects. I feel like we have so much to do in the following week. Everyone in our group is pretty stressed over the amount of things we have to finish in the next week, some of them due of Sunday. Overall, the behavior of our group has improved, and our volume level is getting better. Today we also had an exciting evening activity, as we are watching Now You See Me 2.
