I did something very exciting today!
I accomplished goal
#047: Send in a Postsecret
I am obsessed with Postsecret.
This website is part of an ongoing art project
by a man named Frank Warren.
People all over the country send him postcards
that they decorate with their secrets
and every sunday he posts new ones on his website.
I like this website because I enjoy reading
the honest, heart-warming (and oftentimes heart-breaking)
secrets that people send in.
I think the reason Postsecret is such a hit
is that people are able to relate to and identify with
the secrets that other people send in. Sometimes knowing
that another person in the world is experiencing the same
situation as you or just understands exactly how you feel
is a very powerful thing.
I have always wanted to send in a secret of mine,
but it is one of those things I kept pushing off for another time.
I've been jotting down my secrets on a sticky note
ever since I started the Day Zero Project in October.
Today I was in the mood for a little arts & crafts
(I just finished all my midterms & finally have time to unwind!)
so I finally got around to it. Actually, I sent in ten! Haha :)
I wish I could show you pictures of the cards
I am sending in because I worked so hard on
decorating them... But I suppose that would defeat the purpose.
I will tell you that my secrets are about:
family, boys, friends,
enemies, love, and random
I guess you'll have to read Postsecret every sunday
and decide for yourself if one of mine was posted
(because my lips are sealed).
Good luck :)
