It was a lost cause before we even began trying. It was so great, though! Not the learning-nothing part (as I said, lost cause, how can you not learn something?) but failing and learning with all of the people we gathered together to meet! Mindy, Laura, Wendy, Ren, and a bunch of other Unschooling/Homeschooling families that we found and hung out with there! The day before Learn Nothing Day, we hung out at Ren's house, which was a blast. I have to admit, I was feeling really tired the whole day (and slightly groggy... my mind was still in The Host, which I had been reading in the car) but when the sun went down and the music was turned up, I was energized to jump and (belly)dance with everyone! If you want more pictures, go to my mom's blog --> Our Joyful Life, because I don't have any on this computer.
Anyway, on the Learn Nothing Day itself, I was treated to the massage of my life. Thank you so much, Mindy! I (yes, I know, bring on the nagging) learned so much from her, and gave her and Wendy a massage right after. I found that I really enjoy giving people massages... feeling the knots in their neck, shoulders and back, working them out, and helping other people feel better and more comfortable. Mindy and Wendy agreed that I have a natural talent for it (that's purely their opinion, though, because who am I to say? I've never given myself a massage!) I'm really interested in learning new techniques. I think I've found another calling of mine.
Now I just have to figure out how I can be a masseuse, a writer, a track runner, a bow-and-arrow-person, and an actress. A ma-wri-run-bow-ar-tress. Mawrirunbowartress. I'm sure they're looking for one of those somewhere! ...anyone? Anyone?
