a mothers love by Back-2-Life a mothers love by Back-2-Life
One day i strolled up and down the street. i saw a little girl about 5-7 years with her mum.
i pulled out my wallet, tooked a small sheet of paper and folded a swan, like the one you see on this picture.

her eyes became bigger and bigger and finally i gave it to her.

she said something like: "mum, it´s the same swan we saw in the zoo"
i said: "not quite correct, this one is free- and able to fly"

____________________________________________
Its the Origami Swan (Robert J. Lang).

Folded by me of 8cmx8cm, 15cmx15cm printer paper.

ahah ich bin ein bisschen besorgt..
Ich schreibe einem deutschen Mädchen auch und sie hat heute mir gesagt, dass ihre Schule vorbei war..
Ich wollte nett sein, deshalb habe ich ihr fragen, ob sie befriedig war.. :(
Ich wusste nicht, dass befriedig ein sexuelles Wort war!!!
Ich wollte nur wissen, ob sie zufrieden mit ihre Note war!!!

ahah it's better XD

that's nice!! At least you are getting experience..
I have just started studying languages, but even if this is my first year I'm already tired.
I'm italian and schools and universities are now objects of propaganda. Our parties are constantly changing them -.-
I don't know what I will do in June for example, because they say that most of the exams we have done this year must be taken again -.-

Back-2-Life Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
what kind of languages?
i believe you. first 2 semester of most study courses are the hardest. kind of selection..

that sounds really bad.
how is italys general election so far?
german newspapers are full of it. they are scared of mr. bunga bunga and of this cabaret guy. what´s your oppinion?

Might I ask a question? How long did it take you to become so adept at doing origami?
Reply
:iconback-2-life:
Back-2-Life Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Sure, you are allowed to ask me everything! haha
Thanks that you are calling me adept in origami. To be honest, not that long. About 2 years i think, it´s most about patience (:

I saw your raccoon collection, maybe i should fold that too one day :)

Wisecrack-Idiots Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013
"Everything," you say? You may regret extending that offer. xD
Well, compared to me you're certainly adept, if that's any indicator. I've tried my hands at origami. My sister is more talented at it than I am. Granted, I've tried my hand at it, but I don't really have much of a knack for it, which is why I often marvel at people who do posses the skill. I've tried doves and cranes, and I always fold the lines incorrectly and overshoot the crease. :/

An origami raccoon would certainly look cool. Question is, what pose would you put the lil' rascal in?
