  2. 1a. Well, first of all, a lot of my friends and I are expressing how weird we are in many different ways. First, we all love unicorns, secondly, we made up The Nerdy Times, and finally, at lunch we say, "raise you hand if you are weird" and we all raise are hands and start to laugh because being weird is good. We also made up smily faces that symbolize things, such as weirdness or nerdiness.
    1b. Very fun, weird, and rainbow unicorn filled worlds to be sure.
    1c. It makes me happy that I can finally channel who I am. I feel like I used to be confined to what I thought people would want me to be like, but now I am a much happier and free person. Plus, I'm more weird now!!!!!^.^ (unicorn smily face) 6.6 (awkward smily face) *.* (weird smily face) (another smily face is the nerdy times smily face, but that is a picture.)
    2a. I got 351 seconds and sister got 351 seconds. The reason why we stopped is because my sister had to go to dance.
    2b. I walked around and knew that according to science, it will melt soon.
    2c. I will know that soon, anything bad in my life will pass.
    2d. I observed that the longer I held the ice cube, the less it hurt because my hands were growing numb. I also noticed that the tighter you squeeze on the ice cube the more it will melt, making it warmer.

  4. 1a.Makena, Mallorie and I are having conversations about what our life will be when we're older and we also like talking about how weird we are.
    1b. Fun, weird, honest and exciting.
    1c.They make me feel that I'm not alone. It makes me feel that I can tell anyone anything.
    2. I got 3 mins 50 secs the first time and 4 mins 26 secs. My little sister got 1 mins 50 secs because she throw the ice away too early.
    2a. Because the second time I moved my hand around and my experiences from the first time taught me how to manage the discomfort.
    2b. Walk around in circles so that my body would warm up. Swing my hand back and forth.
    2c. Find someway to push through the challenges. Move through the pain and forget about it.

  5. 1a. Gigi hangs out with us so we talk about unicorns, nerdiness, and weirdness.
    1b. Unicorns, rainbows, weird people.
    1c. I get happy when we start talking about things that interest me most.
    2.
    a. I got 6:31.01 and my mom got 3:05
    b. I held a towel and squeezed my hand while speed-walking and also shifting ice cube spots like from the left side to the right while dabbing my hand in the original spot.
    b. My hand wasn't numb at the end, my mom had loads of pain, I slapped my hand hard afterward so the cold would go away then I rinsed my hand with warm water.
    c. I don't have many conflicts in life but one is What to do when in a sticky situation.

  6. 1a. Me and my soccer teammates talk about lots of things but of course we talk about soccer and the games we have played and will play.
    1b. Competitive and happy.
    1c. I think that it makes us more competitive because we all want to out do each other.
    2a. We each held the ice cube until it melted the first time
    2b. We dealt with the pain like awesome and we were talking to each other
    2c. If you have difficulties you could try to lighten the load by joking around or you could work with someone else to get it done.

  9. 1a. We had a verbal exchange about Greek mythology and the Greek gods.
    1b. Friendly, fun, creative, thoughtful.
    1c. When I get to share about Greek mythology, it makes me happy to see that they are interested in what I'm going to say.
    2a. Katie (nanny): 1:00 Me: 2:07
    2b. Katie tried to move it a little around in her palm but didn't use her fingers. I tried to talk with Katie to get my mind not focused on the ice cube.

    1. I think that creative, is a very good one for # 1b because then everyone is different in their own ways.

  10. 1 a. How was your day? What did you do for fun? What did you learn today?
    1 b. These questions are safe to use and ask anyone that goes to school.
    1 c. When I smile while speaking with other kids it makes them feel good and mee too.


    2.16 Mom’s first ice cube hold
    2:21 Charlie’s first ice cube hold
    16 40 Mom’s second try - it melted
    16 15 Charlie’s ice melted

    a. Yes our times were different. We didn’t know what it would feel like the first time. The second time we got used to it. b. We thought about how much fun it would be to put our cold hands on each others back once the ice had melted. c. We observed that our hands get numb to the cold after a while. d. We had to learn how to work through our pain.

  11. 1a. J-Max, Gigi, The General and I, like to talk about weirdness, unicorns, and other weird stuff! We like to talk about neediness, and weirdness!
    1b. Weird, Unicorns, Fun, rainbows, and silly!
    1c. It makes me feel free, and happy to let all of me out, and being who I am. If I wasn't being who I am, I don't know who I would truly be. I like to express myself, and to other people. I think other people like that I am silly, because i'm a happy person, and happy people usually make other people happy.
    2a. The first time I got 10:01. The second time I did it, I got 13:30.46.
    2b. I walked around to get blood flowing, and making it warmer. Also, blowing softly on my hand, so the ice cube wouldn't melt to fast, so it is a challenge.
    2c. The second time, the ice cube melted faster because of the soft blowing on my hand, is my guess.
    2d. I can apply making a bad situation, into a good one, so that I can deal with the struggle I have, for anything.

    a. What kind of verbal exchanges are going on in your life(home, school, clubs, teams, friends)?
    Movies, movie stars, and their life away from the set.

    b. What kind of worlds are being created by these exchanges(safe, friendly, unfriendly, competitive)?
    Empathetic, deep, intense, scary/lovely.

    c. How do your choices or verbal exchanges impact your happiness and others around you? Please feel free to share about family, school, and/or job. TYPE YOUR RESPONSE.
    The dialogue helps stimulate us to think beyond the initial topic. As we talk about something, new ideas begin to form and we start traveling in a new and fun way, I also think that to support what he just said, I generally think a simpler life is an easier life.

    2. Get a guardian, a timer, a towel, and an ice cube. Hold the ice cube in the palm of your hand for as long as it's bearable. One person should time it. Switch hands, then do it again, this time using a tip/strategy to deal with your "pain". Switch partners.

    a. Were your own times different? Why? TYPE YOUR RESPONSE.
    I was 17:10.10 minutes - it melted, my dad was 4:07.73 minutes.
    We didn't have another 17+ minutes for the second time.

    b. What strategies did you use to help cope with the pain? TYPE YOUR RESPONSE.
    Mine was competition. I wanted to beat everybody's time and I did. It was hard at the beginning, but I got over the cold part and my hand got used to the numbness/cold.
    My strategy was to think about the other person and what they were feeling. Ilaria didn't show much of anything, so it made me sit tight and bear it. Until I couldn't anymore....

    b. How you can apply the same tip/strategies in dealing with struggles or conflicts in your life.
    Well, even if it's hard/ really cold at the beginning just wait and it will numb and get better. However I don't think it would work so great to distract yourself. Because if you distract yourself now you will have to come back to it later.
