Hmm, now this was an interesting activity to do ! I decided to try and link it to my professional life …
I searched around the house for a jar but could only find this old one of my mum and dad’s.
As you can see it is absolutely stuffed full of keys … keys that for the life of me I simply do not know what they are for and sadly now no one will ever be able to tell me what they were for … 😦 anyhow …
I was about to empty the jar to use for this activity but I soon realised that it would be far too small to fit my chosen objects in. Eg: I was going to pick something from my old job (like the mug) and that would haven’t fitted let alone anything else … BUT … then it struck me … perhaps this Jar itself actually represents my past better than the mug… maybe this represents that now is time for a NEW jar and that I am being given the keys to whatever door I want to open next ?
I am at a stage in my life where thanks to being made redundant I now have the opportunity to really think about what I want to do with my life. This is represented by the chair and the fact that at the present time I finally have the opportunity to just ‘ sit and think’ ….
Well the future is represented by the ALT Community (Association for Learning Technology ) sticker and I chose this mainly to represent the fact that what I would like to do in the future is something related to the area of learning technology 🙂 watch this space … I’m working on it 🙂
oh and the small bottle in the purple bag is full of fairy dust … just because everyone needs a little magic in their lives somewhere 🙂
