Day 2 – awesomeness continues…
Day number two agenda – be awesome!
And awesome we were!
After morning routine lecture had to start – everyone knew about one interesting rule – the ones who are late – they will be punished! But they will be punished by the ones who came on time and I won’t have anything to do with it! Well not quite true – I will be the one who will execute the punishment! But whole punishment idea is generated by the class, so those who are late cant blame me that it’s too harsh or something.
We began with no penalties – everyone was on time.
We started our lecture with the god damned STICK! Two teams – two sticks and what do you know, sticks went down pretty fast! I was amazed and from the looks of it – students were amazed too. After completing this annoying trial there was the last step – combining the sticks into a one LOOOONG stick and two teams into one. Before the start I was a little bit nervous for the team, I held my fingers crossed for their success and it looks like it helped! 27 students took down that stick really fast! It was their fastest time! It went smoothly and like it was no big deal!
After a big round of applause for themselves it was time to start our lecture.
Self awareness – like I mentioned it before the whole lecture was built on foundation of NLP. We covered effective communication, map is not a territory, eye movement and theory of lies. By studying these topics they found out a lot of new information about themselves and about other people.
They did a test to identify their dominant sensory modalities, they lied and tried to capture a liar, they copied each other and etc.
To make all the new knowledge sink in better we finished our lecture with one incredible game – assassins. The rules are simple – students form a square, and it is a village. Night comes and all villagers go to sleep (they close their eyes). Then the moderator of the game picks 3 assassins by touching them. When assassins are chosen they open their eyes and pick first victim to kill – they have to pick their first victim in a careful manner, cause if they make too much movement their neighbours can sense them and that would be the end of an assassins career. When victim is chosen assassins go back to sleep and then all village (assassins included) open their eyes. Victim gets a round of applause and leaves the square – game over for him/her. Now it’s time for villagers to debate who might be the real killers! And this is where all the fun started! Some people where hanged with no reason at all! He is a killer! HANG HIM! And hang him they did! No one really cared what that poor victim had to say – HANG HIM! Then again day is over and night comes –
assassins kill another one – morning – another one hanged cialis online without a guilt! After few days small group of villagers did a real good job on finding one of the assassins, they even proofed that she IS lying according to what they’ve learned, but the killer had one great friend who stood by her side and said – My friend CAN’T be a KILLER, she’s good and loving! And people believed her… That mistake caused lives of all villagers, but the end was GREAT – when there were 3 assassins left and 2 villagers – assassins took down one of them and the last villager who was left was the friend of the killer – when that girl opened her eyes and realized that her FRIEND was an ASSASSIN her face expression was worth a million!!! Sad thing was that I had no camera at that time, but trust me it was an incredible experience!
After this lecture I had the rest half of the day free so I decided to join Eimantas Goals class. He did a wonderful job on showing students whole theory through practice! It was a few levels of barriers and blindfolded wandering around – but it was VERY effective!
The best thing was when we did barricade whole room with no gaps to cross and the goal was a little treasure box – they had to touch it. But there was one but – you MUST obey the rules! And rules where simple – no running, keep calm, respect your friends, look for a passage in a peaceful manner. Do you think anyone cared about the rules when they took down their blindfold? For 0,1 millisecond - maybe – after that barricade was torn apart and students flew across the room in a direction of their goal – one of the students went through like a tracer – she jumped over all chairs, flew across pool table and in a few seconds she were at the box – first!
The whole moral of this lecture was when you know what you want and you see it clearly no one and nothing can stop you – not even rules or your friends/family – you will go through anything and anyone till you reach what you crave for!
When lectures were over it was time for fun – so me and Remigijus with his girlfriend went down to volley ball court and lucky we – there were students playing. So we formed three teams and went off with a small tournament.
Our team was the best – we WON! After the tournament we continued playing. We had great fun but we missed our dinner… There was no food left! Maybe we could have made it on time but after the volley ball match we went swimming and that’s how we missed our chance! But cooks were really friendly and took care of our hungry bunch – they made some specials for us.
After that I went down to my room to prepare for tomorrow. But the students had a greater thing to do – FLASHMOB! You can take a loot at it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRs8ffrI_f8
The amazing thing about it that around 108 people did this crazy thing in under an hour – aprox. 45 minutes!
After that it seemed like day should be over and everyone went to sleep… But at 2 am…
The story will continue on friday!
