This is a picture that I originally posted two and a half years ago.
I don’t know what happened in the past two days, but it started to get reblogged like crazy again — more than 7,000 notes in the past two days. @_@
Thanks for all the reblogs, though. I never imagined this picture would exceed 90,000 notes. That’s so crazy.
By the way, the original text for this picture was written in Japanese because I was a student at Middlebury at Mills Japanese language school where I was not allowed to use or be in contact with any language other than Japanese.
Here’s what it translates to:
I folded this in high school.
Yup, so now you know, Tumblr.
Thanks for all the reblogs.
All of you are awesome. :)
Last night I had a dream about origami.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a dream about origami before.
I was in some type of algebraic something class, and we were learning how a certain type of equation is represented on an origami crease pattern.
To do this, we were going to play a game where we had to trace out the crease pattern using the equation and then identify the important points on it — like where the head, arms, hands, fingers, etc would be.
Before the game began, a photo of the previous game’s winner was shown on a screen (much like the pictures of the tributes from the Hunger Games, minus the death). The previous winner was my BFF who doesn’t like math. It wasn’t my friend who was a math major and is currently a math teacher.
Then we started playing the game and I got the first problem right and was able to identify the points. Someone else got the second question, but they didn’t fare so well with identifying the parts of the crease pattern.
Yup. That was my dream.
BUT in real life I can’t read a crease pattern well. Not that I’ve tried many times. Okay, not that I’ve tried at all. But the other day I wrote down a list of goals, and being able to read a crease pattern was one of them. I can only hope I’ll catch on as quickly as I did in my dream. Hah.
