SOCIALIZATION AND MASK PROJECT
My socialization theme is my economic class and on the forehead of my mask has hundred dollar bills on the right side and pennies on the other side. Also on the left side of the face, there's a teardrop under mm eye which means that I am forever in pain and my mouth is sewed up and that shows that no matter what you see your people do, you keep your mouth shut. The criminal and the upside down cross on the mask shows what strangers see on me but on the inside it says love and i’m normal. But i’m normal is crossed out and instead it says “jail” because jail is a very good possibility for me unfortunately.
Socialization and Mask Reflection
I don’t really think I grew as a writer at all in this project. I know that when I wrote my “socialization” paper, this school had convinced me that “socialization” was a real thing and an excuse for all my problems. So my “socialization” paper was pretty emotional and weird in all honesty. (The word socialization will always be in quotation marks in this paper because I don't feel “socialization” is a real thing and more of an excuse and I don’t need excuses i’m old enough to handle my own problems).
This project hasn’t transformed the way I see the world at all It has changed the way I see some things though. My biggest take-away from this project is honestly that this school isn’t for me and I don’t belong here. I am a normal person and this school is for people who can’t make it at dhs all my friends don’t want to be here. What did I do to deserve this... I look around and I see people who are very againsts “sexism” and all that roo rah. But I did learn one important thing: Even if you believe “socialization” whatever your “socialization” is, you do not have to live by it or correspond to that thing.
I do see this theory of socialization giving me a new outlook on the world though, I am seeing that everybody's the same no matter your past or “socialization” was like. I am also seeing that no matter your “socialization” you can either completely believe it and let it be an excuse or hold you down, or you can just not care about it or look past it.
As a project worker I feel I have grown. I think everybody else thinks I haven't but I believe I have. I have grown as a project worker. Teachers probably want to believe I haven’t but I have. I enjoyed doing one task over and over (making the paper masks) I loved this project work even though the topic of the project was a little bit shaky to me. I don’t have any solid evidence that proves I have grown as a project worker (that is impossible and a stupid concept) so all I can say is is that I really feel like I worked better than any other project that I have had to do.
As group member, I believe I contributed to my group and my group members probably think I contributed. Although the teachers probably think I didn’t, I know I did and My group knows I did and that’s all that matters really. As far as me contributing to the success of the exhibition, I made the masks. And they were one of the most important aspects of the exhibition. If I didn’t do what I did, that would be a whole part of the exhibition taken away. If I could do anything differently In the exhibition I wouldn’t do anything differently honestly. I did what I needed to do and didn’t have to stress about it or bend over backwards for the exhibition so that is considered a success to me. And a little side note, I saw some of my quotes from my essay on the wall so I had to do something right.
