Saturday we had the final parts for the Olympics. First we did the IceCube challenge. We had to scoop as many ice cubes as possible into a bucket with our feet. We then did ring toss and javelin throw. I then set a world record of 24 points. After that we took a break. My team (Green), was in third place. We then took to the last event. We had to carry a sponge from bucket to bucket and fill one up as fast as possible. It took a couple minutes but we got first place and won. We were the 2015-2016 Olympic Champions.

In photography class we need to take and submit photos based on lines, shape, value, mass, color, texture and space. At first I thought it was going to be easy but when I got outside, it was suddenly hard to find the categorized images. The picture below would represent space because of the vast majority of open space.
Everything was basic until Turkish class. We were able to skype with a Turkish resident. They were just coming to an end for an even where they don't eat all day. It was interesting to ask questions and get super accurate answers. Later that day we went to a gallery hop. We walked from building to building looking at overpriced art. Overall, it was a good day

Today we started a new elective. I got placed into Turkish Language and Culture. Today we learned a few basic phrases. We watched videos involving culture and we looked over canvas for future assignments. I feel that it may be a challenge and I'm up for that.

So today we practiced for our Olympics. We went around to different stations and found out who was dominant in each event. Next week we will get together and whoever was dominant, participates in that event. LETS GO KENTUCKY SCHOLARS!

Today we took a trip to Gods Pantry. While there we volunteered to help package cereal that would be handed out to people of need. We took a small bag and filled it to average out to 1 lb 8 ounces. We then filled up boxes with 12 bags in each. At the end of the day, we ended up packing 1800 pounds of cereal. We were also told that what we packed, would feed 1500 people. That's crazy! I had a great experience and would look forward to doing it again.
