Thursday, December 17, 2009


I feel like this blog is not going in the correct direction. With being at school and having little free time to dedicate this, I have been overly selective with the missions I complete, choosing them for ease rather than the outcome. When I started this, I viewed it as a way to connect with the world, to bring unsuspecting people together, to make people notice things they normally wouldn't, to do different things.

I have completely failed at the majority of those goals lately. There is one mission that was posted early in the year that will require a huge chunk of time and planning, but it is the one I want to do the most. I have to be in Jacksonville to pull this one off, and with a month-long winter break ahead of me, I feel like I can accomplish it.

In the mean time, bear with me. In the next month hopefully I can do some of the more difficult ones that I have set aside in a folder on my desktop with the screaming title "REALLY WANT TO DO."

I hope I can pull this next one off, but there is a good chance that it will be a bust. Keep your fingers crossed.

Mission 27 - North Pole Sunset

I had no idea that a North Pole sunset would be so amazing. I don't know how I have lived my life and never even seen an image of this.

Mission 26 - David's Memory

I bought a memory of David's.

When I receive the memory, I may post it, depending on what it is.

This isn't really a "mission," but it part of another fun aspect of David's site: http://davidhorvitz.com/if/index.html

Mission 25 - The sky is on my ceiling

I now wake up, think of everything that is possible in my life and in the world. I turn over, and I see the sky.

Allison and I are thinking about covering our entire ceiling in images of the sky since we are enjoying this one little bit of it. David took a photo of the sky everyday in 2008. They can be seen here: http://davidhorvitz.com/2008_sky.html

Mission 24 - I am SICK of waiting

I am sick of waiting for exams to be over. I am sick of waiting for people to get over silly grudges. I am sick of waiting for an idea. I am sick of waiting for free time to come back. I am sick of waiting for so many things.

Mission 23 - Everything That Can Happen in a Day

The view from my pillow. Taking advantage of my new moon paper.

I am sending an envelope to David to get the newsprint version, and I will post that when I get it.

Mission 22 - Obscured Face

I was not a happy camper during this. My roommate thought I was crazy when I asked her to take a picture. "Hey, can you take a picture of me after I randomly cover my face in shaving cream, and cite a blog for the reason I am doing it?" She was perplexed. All the while my other roommate, Allison (who just started LettersFromAroundTheWorld.tumblr.com) laughed because she knew exactly what I was doing and why. But she didn't help. Thanks Allison. Thanks. It all got in my eyes and it stung horribly. Needless to say, washing my face has never felt more relieving than it did after this was done.

Mission 21 - Moon Paper

Here is my Moon Paper. I am using it in future missions that involve sending letters. And I wrote a letter to my brother on it. If only the moon was actually white like the paper...
