Since I have started this study, most people ask me to ‘invent’ something. Most women want a robot that cleans the house. My mom has been asking for that, for about 17 years now. The leaves are falling from the trees. Now that it’s autumn again, people want a weather machine against the cold. My musical friends want a new instrument, and my sailing friends would really like a faster boat. I need to invent a disposable chair, a screen you can bring everywhere so you can always see pink elephants dancing around (don’t even ask from who I got that), a thing that would stop people from forgetting their appointments (do you people ever look in your diary?) and fast…. if you please. I haven’t even started about how many people asked me about travelling through time. But apparently it’s a topic that lots of people think about a lot. They have a clear time in mind they want to go to in the past or they just want to go to ‘what used to be’. Or even worse: people want to be away from now but also from the past which leaves just the future… I have to tell something to those of you who are thinking these things:

There are many stories about his life. Even his son didn’t know for sure who Cristopher Columbus was. He could have been Italian, or Spanish. It’s possible that he had a high status in society, or not. He could have been a pirate like Jack Sparrow, or he was really civilized. Endless possibilities about the life of just one man. Why all these questions? Well, I can tell you they celebrate the day today in America. Today it’s the twelfth of October. It is a special day today. Besides that the twelfth of October won’t be on a Tuesday any time soon and certainly not with this weather this is the day that Columbus found America. Columbus is someone I see as one of the first CreaTers. He might not have created something, but he was brave enough to start to discover. I think we all need our first Columbus-moment. The first journey to the unknown. The first answers to ourselves and then the first quest and the first thing we can discover all by our self. The only answers we have are: he was born someday, he has found America and then someday after that he died. But I bet he knows the rest of the story.

What happened here? We don’t have any We create identity courses any more. That’s kind of strange. We’re getting along with our interactive movie. That’s going to be quite nice. And I almost think we have an identity now as a group. We made one ourselves. That feels like an accomplishment. And for myself… I know a new part of my identity now. One that I wasn’t familiar with. I found that it calms me when I write my thoughts about something down. I am not a person who just gives her thoughts to everybody. Especially when you don’t ask for it. This makes it harder for me to explain what I am thinking. Simply because there is so much to tell. But for myself it’s really nice to have these things written down. I understand myself better and I can read it again and say hey I missed a point right there, or that was really stupid to think of me. And my family likes my blog as well. I was surprised by this. They don’t really mind reading my blog, right?? So I am so sorry, but I am not going to stop blogging. In fact I already know what my next blog is going to be about :D Perhaps on Friday. After assignment 13. To be continued.
Ps Have a look at the logo’s guys. They’re really nice. You’re a CreaTer or you’re not. And these are ;-) https://sites.google.com/site/create10ca1site/organisation-exhibit
