1st Day of School Selfie, no EC 

I want my students to work on more "live" recordings, so we needed a suitable prop.

Mostly cardstock cut with a Cricut, with a string of red USB powered LEDs from 5 Below.

Currently using an old USB power bank to provide electricity, though I might just use an old wall charger instead, depending on classroom placement.

Linux, I'm stuck. 

On August 13 every approved Donors Choose project is getting a "back to school boost" paid for by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

I need to bring a "charged laptop" to a training tomorrow and I'm tempted to have it be my PiTop, even though it's a 3B (no +).

The squeegee we're using to make silkscreened t-shirts doesn't prop up well, which makes things messy.

A binder clip fixes the problem pretty fast.

It's the little things.

Yesterday my Media Arts majors did a test printing of a t-shirt design. I was a little worried that cardstock would be too thick to use as a stencil, but fortunately fabric is flexible enough for this to not be an issue.

When we're done, each student will have their own unique design on the front and a common design on the back.

TAG students were shown the "Caine's Arcade" video today.

They are very excited to plan their cardboard games.

How convenient that we've spent the last few months with lessons on circuitry and designing 3d structures out of 2d materials.

Now we get to do game design.

Between 2009 and 2019 ... I got a lot older, scruffier, and more worn out.

The best resolutions are the ones you don't feel compelled to put off until an arbitrary date on a calendar.

I'm gonna make stuff.

It's been a while since I made something for someone else.

Even longer since I did something like this.

Feels good.
