Dearest Super Koala,
I am sorry that I have not posted in two weeks. I just completely forgot about it last week. However, I hope you realize that on Monday, you will have six pages due in order to catch up to me.
The first page was pretty easy. I was instructed to make a treasure map. I was at first just going to make a really cool looking map that served no real purpose, but then I decided to actually “bury” something. Bury is in quotations because I didn’t really dig up the ground and put something in it, rather I hid objects in our basement. Now that I think about it though, that is just as good as burying something.
So the map is a layout of the basement and in three of the rooms I hid a different object. In the laundry room there is a container full of bouncy balls, in the bedroom there is a ball of yarn, and in the back room there is a painted box with rocks inside. All three objects are completely out of plain sight, so I consider that buried.
For the next page, I had to collect something from every place I went out to eat that week. We only went three places, and I wasn’t very good at remembering to take something, so I guess it was a good thing I didn’t post last week. Otherwise, this page would have been very boring.
On Sunday, we went to Jo Boccardi’s; I had pizza. My object is the paper they use to keep the silverware wrapped up. However, I forgot to take this with me. Luckily, Frailey’s, where we went on Tuesday, has the same color wrapper, so I just took two from there. Finally, on Thursday, I had White Castle’s. I was going to cut out the logo on the bag, but I forgot about that and had to settle with a piece of napkin. To supplement for my lackluster items, I drew pictures of what I had in order to jazz the page up a bit.
On the next page I was supposed to write notes to myself that I would want to read in ten years. I couldn’t really think of anything to write, so instead I just wrote a bunch of cheesy motivational phrases in fun fonts to fill up the space. I think it wound up looking pretty cool.
Finally, I had to drip wax onto a page. I got very impatient waiting for enough wax to melt, so I wound up with very little to work with. It was my plan to make a smiley face all along to go with my motivational sayings, I just had less wax to work with than I would have liked. But, I guess that is my own fault for getting antsy. Nonetheless, I think he is pretty cute.
That’s all I have for these past weeks. I hope I will be more punctual this coming week.
