Going into this class knowing that I would have to be involved in an actual activist project was a little intimidating. I had all sorts of preconceived ideas about what really counted as activism. It was overwhelming, and I felt like I would never have the time or resources to be a "real" activist. However, I soon realized this didn't have to be true.
I had recently gone to a village in Assam where this farmer had a green house of sorts where he grew this really interesting flower (whose name I cant recall any longer). Apparently they last for 40 days after they have been plucked and that really intrigued me. To me that was a novelty. Anyway, I got some to see how they decay.
