Back to School/Getting to Know You Pages

30 Aug

Okay, so it’s back to school time and we are thinking about those first days back and the oh-so-important getting to know you activities. It seems that everyone has some cutesy idea and crafty bulletin board ideas posted. You know those ones, the kind that make the rest of us feel like we couldn’t come up with that kind of display even if we were graded on it! Despite our ineptitude in this area, we still always try.

So we have a superhero theme going on but we kind of wanted a social media take on the getting to know you activity. This is where our mildly, somewhat, okay scary compulsive side comes into play. We have an idea in our heads and then we look around. There are some amazing resources available but they are not quite exactly what we want. For some reason we don’t want a full page but we don’t want a half page either.  It’s weird. The normal thing to do would be to use the premade pages and say “This will work for me very well, thank you”.  It is not to obsess about how it’s still not what you want.  Instead, you set about making your own. You even sign up for Instagram because you want to see the images and the layout. You create an Instagram theme getting to know you page. For a while you’re happy…

Then, you start thinking about selfies. That could be cool and there’s even some clipart with superheroes taking selfies. Again, you follow similar steps as before. At least this time there isn’t anything you have to register for and a cellphone template is surprisingly quick and easy to make.  Again, you’re happy.

At least for a while…

Anyway, for anyone who is still looking for variations, here are a couple more ideas. You can say “This will work for me very well, thank you” or set about  on your own compulsive ways.  Good luck!

… maybe we should be checking out superhero themes …
