doctor-who-contest

Hello Whovians! Last week we held a #ScienceofDW contest and the entries that we got were so science-y that we found ourselves consulting old textbooks for the first time since leaving school. 

We read about the growth cycle of Silurians, how Adipose are formed (and how we got our name), why regeneration is a thing, how reversing the polarity of the neutron flow is paradoxical, and so much more. You Whovians are a pretty smart bunch!

Thanks everyone SO much for participating, Whovians are some of the most creative fans in all of time and space! As always, we’ve randomly selected 10 entrants to win, and here they are:

Something Nice

I have this adorable student who has the most adorable crush on another student in class.  They came up to me this week toward the end of the period and asked me a rather out-of-the-blue question:

“Miss _____, can I ask you to do me a favor?”

Cue my shifty eyes: “Uh, OK.  What do you need?”

“Can you help me make a paper flower for someone?”

Now, I’m not the art teacher, but I do enjoy art–though I’m not sure how this student figured it out.  I told my pupil when my plan period was and that would be a good time to get with me to try to make paper flowers.  Meanwhile, my brain is going “OMG HOW DO YOU MAKE PAPER FLOWERS?  TO THE INTERNETS I MUST GO.”

So, right on time, my student arrives just as my plan period begins.  After a brief Google search, I find a website totally devoted to making paper flowers.  After the first failed attempt, I improvised all my own.  Once I demonstrated it, I set my student to making it on their own.  It was really touching to see the concentration and dedication–not to mention the love–put into this single construction paper flower with a wax stem made from some sort of new-fangled education substance I got for free from some company hawking out their wares.

Then my student asks if I would like to listen to the love note.  Oh boy, okay, sure.  What followed was a 3 stanza epic that sounded like it was ripped from some archaic ballad written by a dude in a toga.  It was clear that some lines were inspired by Sunday school or The History Channel, but it was not without heart.  In fact, you could tell a lot of thought went into it and not to mention all of the 12-year-old emotions flooding my student’s soul.  So, I listened and gave my 2 cents, letting my student know how the recipient would feel toward certain lines.

While the outcome of the gift did not go as well as my student planned by the end of that day, this student never fails to hug me and tell me I’m the best teacher in the world every time we see each other now.

And on the worst of days as a teacher, being able to do something nice for someone and making an impact on a young life, however trivial, is worth it.

How to overcome never seeing your family by using the internet & doctor who stamps 

Being a student has never been a permanent location thing for me. My entire family lives in Virginia, but in the last six years I have spent a collective six months seeing the people I love most in the world. And we’re one of those families, you know. We go on big outings together and spend the day in front of the telly and we love each other and, yeah. We’re kind of gross, but a huge part of that is we never really get to see each other. It’s hard.

We’re about to get into birthday/holiday season for us, and that means missing loads of birthdays, last days of school, and commemorating just how amazing my family is. Skype once a week doesn’t cut it for me. I have to show the people I love how much they mean to me, because when else am I going to be able to do it? I did take my mum to Paris over Easter, but that sort of thing is expensive, and can’t really be replicated all the time. Students need to pinch pennies, you know?

So, here it is: how to do nice things for the people you love when you don’t actually get to see them.

  1. Amazon. The gifts and stuff on amazon are pretty solid and cheap, and they have the option of gift wrapping+sending a personalized note. For those of us not around for special days /cough/mothersdayinaweek/cough/, this is a great option. For example, I just sent off a beautiful necklace to my mum with the phrase ‘The Love Between a Mother and Daughter Knows No Distance’. Sent as a gift (free wrapping. woohoo amazon!) and with two day free shipping (the most glorious thing in the world is amazon prime, my friends. students even get a discount.), it’ll get to her in plenty of time, and cost me so little that I can probably send off some flowers, too. YAY!
  2. Postcards. One of the best things to do with postcards (which are dirt cheap when traveling) is to collect stamps from the places you go to, and then ship them off while there. My latest collection are some Doctor Who stamps while in London. Of course, those stamps alone aren’t going to make someone feel special, but writing them an incredibly nice and thoughtful note will definitely help. Nothing superficial, but heartfelt and cherishable. Nothing says 'I am thinking of you and you are important’ like spending time while you’re exploring somewhere wonderful writing something lovely to a loved one. Plus, it looks freaking awesome on a fridge.
  3. Television shows. Yeah, you’re off exploring places and studying, but let’s be honest: everyone needs some time to sit down and stare at a screen of some sort, or read a book or something. My dad, bless him, can only really communicate with me about particularly nerdy things. Being a nerd, I find this completely acceptable! Though I started out watching Doctor Who as a way of expanding our topics of conversation, it’s now become something we can talk about over Skype for hours, sometimes even streaming episodes and watching them together. Family doesn’t let family miss out on Doctor Who, okay. It’s just not done.
  4. Make yourself available for skype calls. Writing a paper? You can chill for thirty minutes and chat with your brother about his obnoxious neighbor or the cool thing his puppy did. He’ll be happy to have talked with you, and you’ll be thrilled to have talked to him. Academia can wait.
  5. Remember that being there isn’t always about being there. When my uncle died a week ago, my mother didn’t know what to do. She didn’t know who to talk to. She felt guilty for not going to the funeral. I may have been thousands of miles away, but I talked to her and supported her throughout the entire time. I kindly reminded her that funerals were for the living. Help each other through things. 

So that’s it. This is a list of some things I’ve recently done/experienced/worked through to help be a part of my family, even though I’m ridiculously far away from them. Hopefully they’ll help some of you guys out, too!

Experimenting with art styles is a fun time, really ^^;

When this contest came out, I thought I was going to be more prepared, but up until tonight I had forgotten about it, so when the Doctor Who Tumblr sent out a reminder, I flipped out and set to work.

Anywho, since the beginning I’ve wanted to draw myself and my best friend inside or outside of the T.A.R.D.I.S, since she was the one who got me into Doctor Who. We’ve had dreams about The Doctor many, many times, in hers she’s a companion, in mine, I’m a time agent. Going off from our love of the show and it’s characters, we had so many plans for a webshow/vlog, but since I’ve moved, that’s nearly impossible. So, to pay a small tribute to our shared adventures, I’ve completed this and I’m pretty happy with it.

I’m glad to have participated in this contest, and to my friend who I hope sees this, we’ve shared some great adventures, alone or together, with or without our doctors. Some were dark times, horrifying times where we faced The Master in our high school, but most were completely amazing times where we were traveling in the T.A.R.D.I.S, saving people and planets.

What I really want to say is, you were fantastic, and you know what? So was I.

Okay I want to do a Doctor Who contest but I need to know what submitters would want more

A doctor who exploding tardis mug
River Songs journal
Ten or Elevens LED screwdriver flashlight
Dalek, TARDIS, or Sonic Screwdriver keychain
Knee high Doctor Who socks
Over the knee Doctor Who socks
Tardis Lunchbox
Heat changing tardis mug

Let me know in my ask box what you think would be the most fun to do a contest for. I’ll total up and go with the most popular item.
