Generic Journal Update. Version 1.1

5 Oct

DVDs are well on the way. Hopefully they’ll be sent out this weekend to all you fine Hampshire people.
If anybody wants a JC Story DVD with deleted scenes and out-takes and such, let me know and it will be put in the mail.

The school is going well. Gabe and I are co-teaching a class on sustainability and a class on wilderness survival. We built a debris hut in the woods, and then Wallace (one of our students) got inside it as we poured water onto the top of it. And he stayed dry.*
The sustainability class is so far really cool. Our class project is designing and building (as much as possible) a sustainable community that we all want to be in, and that is also (not coincidentally) our school: The Village which contains New Earth Academy, in other words. Basically, we’re designing the New (and correct) World. After all, somebody needs to be.
I’m also teaching a class on digital graphics. Next week, we’re going to start animating collages and things we’ve made in Photoshop. Should be fun.
So that’s some of what happens during the four days of the school week. We’re still desperately fundraising like mad, trying to acquire this huge schoolhouse before it is sold to condo-developers, and hopefully that will happen. Then Hallie and I would get to live in it and be house-parents for the school, which could have dorm rooms and boarding students. One step closer to The Village.
And now I must go and write class descriptions for mid-Quarter evaluations.

Oh right! Serenity! I want to write a review or something at some point, but I’d like to see it again first. We just finished showing all of the Firefly episodes to Gabe, who believes it to be the best TV show ever. In the mean time, if you haven’t seen it, you should. You might love it.

*except for a few drops. But we ran out of time. And leaves. Well, just time.
