Guesswork Cooking – W9D2 by Midge

For the self designed challenge we each took a different outlook on cook crew. Instead of choosing something challenging to make, I chose a difficult way of doing it. I personally have a very hard time with obsessing over making everything perfect; I can’t stand if it’s 1.1 or 0.9 cups, it has to be […]

Redesigned Online Presence – W9D2 by Katie M.

I have a horrible habit of picking really ambitious goals for my self designed challenges, and burning out around 2:30am. This sounds hilarious, but between the hours of 8pm and 2:30am last night I had 2 cups of coffee and 4 bowls of cereal. It seemed sane at the time. In Paonia, I did the […]

Making a Zine – W9D2 by Lily J.

I decided to use this week’s self design challenge as a creative outlet. Sitting around for hours with a cup of coffee and my sketchbook, I cut and pasted a poem I had recently written about my (now ex) boyfriend into a four page zine layout. I also added a bunch of doodles I had […]

Locked In – W8D5B by Seraya

Imagine being locked in small room with three other people for 36 hours with no electronics, no way to tell the time, and no connection to the outside world. Imagine the strange topics or thoughts that one’s mind can come up with in a situation like that. Imagine the little things that you don’t normally […]

Yearbook Club – W8D5C by Ben

Self-designed challenges historically do not go smoothly. They typically have little to no oversight from staff, and give a strong sense of being stranded in the open ocean without a life vest. Historically, but not this time. Our group was efficient and our challenge divvied up equally, based on each persons’ strength. Not much could […]

Eat It, Landfills – W8D2A by Lily G.

Food isn’t something most people think about. A lot of us wouldn’t consider ourselves to have a “relationship” with food, and many of us seem to ignore the value of it. We buy it, occasionally cook it, usually eat it. Usually? Yes, usually. Turns out, anywhere between a quarter and a third of the total […]

My Journey with Physical, Mental and Emotional Health through the Lens of Food – W8D2A by Catherine

“People are fed by the Food industry, which pa ys no attention to Health, and are treated by the Health industry, which pays no attention to Food.” – Wendell Berry I feel that food is such a great subject for conversation because everyone can relate. Each and every individual has a journey with food and a story to tell. This is my […]

One Paperclip – W8D2F by Joe

The week 7, day 1 and 2 challenge was the paper clip challenge. The paper clip challenge is where you start with a paper clip, and try to trade for something in higher or same value. We all had a goal to try and reach; my goal was a bike. So, I started with a paper clip […]

The Engineering Challenge – W8D2C by Jack

The group for this 2-day challenge was small, with only me (Jack), Midge, and Oscar, or as Addison called us: The Dream Team. Before Addison told us our specific challenge, he told us the reason behind it: simplicity. A simple, yet difficult problem, with a not-so-simple solution. Our challenge? Move a 5,000 pound rock 5 feet. […]
