This is our products.
Have you ever taken the time to actually work on something and turned it into a piece of product that you are surely proud of? Maybe as simple as finishing an essay, putting together a bed or as complex as building unimaginably structures out of Lego and fixing a car. How does it feel like when the final product comes out? Good right? Am I right?
Well, these shirts right here are the very first products that we’ve made. It felt good holding the shirts in our hands, feeling them, wearing them, and selling them.
First it was the iron we used which took around 10 minutes for each shirt. I’m talking pressing the iron down ironing the shirt for a good 10 minutes. That’s hard work. Then it was the heat press which saved us a lot of trouble by just automatically heating the ink through the shirt within 10 seconds.
Throughout the process of making shirts, we have developed characters. We fought over which designs to print or when we’re going to meet up. There were times we thought we have failed the project but then we think again and we see that we’re somewhere behind the start line. The key thing to this is that at least we have started and that’s the hardest part for most situations.
School work has always been the problem intervening us from making banks (money) and we already had acknowledged the problem since day one. Why won’t we fix it? We had tried numerous times and every time, we made some progress. However, it’s still a problem for some reason as school dragged on. I know that “You always make time for what you love to do” but I guess my timing wasn’t right. Now don’t get me wrong that we didn’t do anything for this project because we did do a handful of things and I thoroughly enjoy the process.
When school is over, I’m hoping to keep this project going because at the bottom of my heart, I still enjoy making shirts and making banks.
I’m extremely thankful for this project because without it, I would’ve never thought about turning my thoughts into something real. I always have thoughts in my head but most of them don’t work out. But this was the one that worked out thanks to this project, it was like my dream came true. What am I talking about “was like,” my dream did come true. These shirts are real, I can hold them.
To sum it all up, because of this project, I got to know my partners (Nobel and Kevin) better. Because of this project, I realize that I can chase any dream I have I just need to get started somewhere and view it as a project. Because of this project, I can now wear shirts that I made by myself. Because of this project, I’ve learn to become a self directed learner as I researched by myself on what to buy in order to my shirts. Because of this project, I’ve learned to become an effective communicators as I plan things out with my partners. Because of this project, I got another feeling of what it’s like to be proud of something you have made. I like that feeling.
At the end of the day, everyone will go back to their business and I’ll go back to mine, but this project forever stays in my heart. It may seem like we didn’t accomplish much, but we did accomplish plenty. Such as: new shirts, a bit money, friendships, and experience… etc. And those things are really all you need in life.
