My 20 percent project

HMMMMMM....... I think  this will be an interesting project, since we will learn something we decided to learn it and yet get marks on learning  it..

I am thinking about doing one of these things;




 painting






making a small  cobord from wood (when I was young I brought some wood to build a cobord but I wasn't able to;(






 cooking(back in Kuwait I was living in my family in low's house I didn't need to cook, So in San diego I am discovering cooking)



crochet

learning how to photoshop
playing tennis ball or tennis



If you have any other suggestions please help me with..

  1. Hi Nour, I think crocheting is a super idea. Having a skill that can be useful, being able to make gifts, also, just having something to do when you want to turn your mind off for a bit. Plus, once you dtart you just continue to improve. I think I'm ready to join you!

  2. Hi Nour, It is Stephanie again. I think I also like the knitting idea because of an amazing TED talk I saw a while ago about Alzheimer's and learned rote skills I'll try to find the link for you. Basically it stated that patients who have a skill like knitting are happier. They can retreat to the familiar by just engaging in something that they mind and body know very well. It was very powerful.

  3. The more that I see others post about cooking, I now want to take up cooking. I am a terrible cook, so this being an assignment maybe it will motivate me to want to do something, my husband would enjoy it! :)

  4. Hi Nour, Not sure what a cobord is...please explain in class! I vote for Tennis! It's a wonderful sport, gets you outside and focuses you on something that builds good health and stamina. It can be kind of meditative with the back and forth volleys that (eventually!) will occur. It also requires some strategy which comes more into play when as your skills increase.

  5. Crochet could be very relaxing and a great escape from work and class.

  6. We both had the crochet idea! I think either that or a painting, something you can create. :)

  7. Crocheting would be relaxing and fun, but I like the idea of photoshop. Think of all the fun stuff you could do with it! :)

  10. Nour,

    I would go with tennis or cooking, because both have theraputic aspects. With tennis, you would get a great work out as well as being able to learn a new life long sport. Cooking also would have great pragmatic value because you can use it in your daily life...not to mention I personally would LOVE to taste a dish from Kuwait.
