The last thing I had to do for capstone was participate with the rest of my classmates in another Titan Traverse to finish up the semester in the same way we started it. It was indoors this time and involved some new games, like "Muse." That one involved getting the whole lot of us from one platform to another using only planks and cinder blocks, plus we had to carry a bunch of "obstacles" that hindered us. The best thing about this exercise was seeing the camaraderie my class had formed. We were helpful and encouraging and when we thought we weren't going to make it in time we pulled together and we did it. Gives me hope for real life (which I have to face right soon) in that I know I will have people rooting for me and that will give me the strength to make it.

Not only that, but I now know I am able to scale a rock wall, and that's a confidence booster in and of itself.

The Holiday Spirit with OfficeMax

And now a form of convergence for the holidays...

OfficeMax is giving you a form of Christmas cheer to give you and your loved ones a chuckle. At, you can turn up to four people into, you guessed it, elves. Not only do you get to see what your family members look like as Santa's little helpers, you also get to see them make fools out of themselves, because these elves are dancing elves. Thaaaaat's right. And for an added bonus, if you call a number to leave a message that will accompany the elves when you e-mail them to friends. Pretty slick. And, to the benefit of OfficeMax, they are able to advertise their products without being an annoying pop-up ad on another website. So good job everyone!

Just a random example, because I am not about to subject myself to green clothes and pointy shoes:

Some Elves

So, I was able to get two of my videos on YouTube this weekend, which makes me very happy. The ones I put on were the PSAs I made for the New Castle Public Library - I wasn't able to get the commercial I made for up yet, but hopefully I can do that soon. I have a three part series of PSAs for the library, and then one more which is a compilation of the other three. I was unable to get the compilation one up, or else I'd show you that one, but is here one of the parts:

I hope you enjoy!
