This past Friday was the MAD graduation. If you are a new follower to my blog I am apart of an academy called MAD which is short for “Multimedia Arts Design Academy.” With only 4 days left of school MAD decided to do the senior graduation Friday night starting at 5 pm. I attended the ceremony with my friends Julia and Sam and sadly we were about 25 minutes late so we missed about half of the senior videos. From the videos I saw it was a beautiful and perfect way to end their 3 year experience here in MAD and to say thank you to all of their teachers and mentors that have helped them out along the way. After the graduation we had a showcase for the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior class projecting our works and projects in all different rooms around MAD to show our parents what we have been doing this whole entire year. It was so interesting to walk around and explore all the different works from the students and see their photography, adobe, and editing skills projected. As the school year has gone by I have realized that I am very lucky to be apart of a wonderful academy and thankful for all the amazing people I have met along the way. Cheers to two more years in MAD and congratulations to all the Seniors who graduated from MAD on Friday and who will be graduating from Santa Barbara High School this Thursday night. Good luck out their in the real world and thank you for being great mentors to us lower clansmen.
Morning bloggers! Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend! This past Friday the academy I am apart of had a beach clean up to earn community service hours and to give back to the community and do a good deed. After school we were supposed to all head down the a local beach, Leadbetter. From there we met up with the whole academy and they assigned clean up teams and we went to work. My team was quite the team and we picked up 4 pounds worth of trash. Pretty good since we were only cleaning up for 30 minutes. The trash consisted of many cigarette buds and Styrofoam Now after spending an afternoon giving back to the community I realized that once in a while we should take time away from our busy schedules and help out the community and the Earth we live on 😉 Nothing worse then to live on a dirty planet. I highly recommend for you to get a group of your friends and go down to your city hall and and schedule a community clean up and help out. I promise you it will make a difference. Even if its for only 15 mins.
