Wk 6 – “We need to talk about Beauty”

For this project, I didn’t really dress up or make my self look any nicer. Instead, I just wore a green neon vest and walked around Bolsa Chica Wetlands. I watched this video where a guy dressed up as a janitor and he was let into a lot of random events and venues just because he was dressed like a janitor, so I was trying to go for something like that.

A lot of people actually approached me first to ask for directions for a volunteering event. Obviously, I had no idea what they were talking about, and they were just as confused as I was when I told them I didn’t know what they were talking about. I guess wearing the green neon vest made me look like I had knowledge I don’t have. When I told people about my project, they thought it was pretty funny because I really didn’t change anything about myself, but I just had a different look to me.

When I made people guess my major, a lot of them thought I was in environmental studies. (Probably because I was wearing a green neon vest in the wetlands). I made people guess how old I was, too, and I got a lot of 20+ ages, even thought I’m only 18. The green neon vest also makes me look older, I guess.

My experience overall was a good one. I thought it was so funny that people thought I knew stuff about nature just because I wore the green neon vest and walked around the wetlands. I felt bad that I couldn’t help the lost folks, though. I hope they found their destination.
