This is an alternate construction to the one shown in the instructions. With this post, I’ve also included a before picture to demonstrate how the model looks before curling. I’m always fascinated by how a model can change so much just with a little curling. 

It’s been a huge year for me and thisismyorigami and I thank you for all the continued support! Who knows what next year has in store, but I’m certainly looking forward to it. 

I hope all of you had a happy holidays and I wish you all the best of luck in 2015!

Happy New Year!

Bucky holding your baby girl for the first time. Fast forward 16 years and she's going on her first date. She's beautiful, with her fathers eyes and hair. "Have her home at 9:30," Bucky instructs harshly. You hold his arm to make sure he doesn't kill the poor terrified boy. Fast forward 10 more years and she's sitting in front of you with a man. "We're getting married," she smiles up at her father. "I'll kill you," he growls at the now man. "Bucky!" You yell, and pull him back. Cont.

“Dad please,” she pleads softly. “I think you and I need to talk,” he growls and yanks up the man pulling him outside. “Start looking for another boyfriend,” you smile at your baby girl. “He’s going to have to let me go,” she whispers. “I know, you’re just his baby girl,” you say patting her knee. “He had no problem letting my brother get married,” she mumbles. “It’ll be okay,” you promise. Bucky comes back with the man and sits beside you. Cont.

Fast forward one year and you’re sitting in a chair watching Bucky walk your baby down the aisle. You tear up, he hands her over. Fast forward three more years and she’s waddling up to your door alongside the bravest man. You grin and open the door for them. End.

Me: Here’s the “perishables” we got a shipping alert for.
Hub: Consider them an endangered species.

I think these are from my Aunt and Uncle, they forgot to tell me they were sending something but UPS warned us a package was aimed at our house. This is going to be a tasty surprise. ^×^

FBI's First (Part 2)

A/N: Um yeah its kinda trash but i’m kinda stressed rn and it was in my head so I just typed it all up hoping for the best lol… Also I decided to go with the surname James as it’s pretty common and also ‘Y/L/N’ irritates me sometimes.

Part 1 Part 3 Part 4 End Alternate End

Sitting with the team was possibly one of the most awkward things you’ve ever experienced. Rossi awkwardly fingered the files strewn across the table. Morgan avoided eye contact with you. Reid tapped his pen on the table in silence, something very unfamiliar. JJ grabbed your arm trying to distract you from the obvious uncomfortable atmosphere.

“Ok Garcia can you begin?” Hotch instructed as she ran in obviously flustered.

“You’re heading to Jacksonville, where the bodies of 3 young men have been found and another has been reported missing.” Garcia carried on flashing images of the men on the screen your head spinning as you tried to take in all the facts whilst trying to ignore the underlying feel of humiliation.

Garcia finished and the total silence was almost comical. You let out a slight giggle trying to stop yourself. All the humour was quickly drained away by a unanimous glare from all of the male team member.

“Wheels up in 30” Hotch instructed moving swiftly out of the room. Quickly followed by the others in silence leaving you, JJ and Garcia sat around the table.

“That was horrible” JJ laughed holding your hand.

“I’ve never been so uncomfortable in my life” you replied rolling your eyes.

“Probably just jealous of whoever the guy was that got to be with your beautiful bod” Garcia winked as she ushered you both out of the room.


“There was no sexual assault on any of the victims which suggests the unsub is either incompetent or a woman, but this kind of murder doesn’t suggest either?” Morgan added to the conversation.

He and Reid carried on discussing the statistics about female killers.

“Ok pretty boy I understand, it’s not likely but it doesn’t mean it’s not true, otherwise it doesn’t make sense” Morgan finished the conversation with a shrug.

“Reid, Morgan head to the dump site. Rossi, Y/N head to the ME and see if there’s anything new. JJ and I will head to the field office to get set up.” Hotch finished up and walked to his seat.

The plane journey descended into silence which you was frustrating, it wasn’t your fault, you didn’t want anyone to see that. Your impatience for someone to bring it up was too much, they’d all seen it and you knew, it wasn’t like they were keeping a secret. You got up preparing to say something but thankfully stopped yourself knowing it would only make it worse. The toilet seemed like a safe space. You locked the door and sat on the toilet trying to control your emotions.

——————————————————————————————————- “Are you guys serious? Are you just going to ignore her?” JJ exclaimed “she didn’t consent to any of this”

“It’s not that JJ, we understand it wasn’t on purpose but I’ve seen more of her than I ever thought I would” Rossi replied in his slow caring tone.

 "Don’t lie Rossi, we all know she was your target for wife number… 8 was it?“ Morgan laughed trying to add some humour to the situation.

“Sorry JJ but you’re joking right? She may not have consented but some of it looked like she knew the camera was there…” Reid piped up.

“Trust me she didn’t know about any of this, you should’ve seen her face. Plus we’ve got a case that’s more important and a man to save!“ Hotch said sternly eyes flicking from each person.


You spent what felt like a lifetime in the bathroom and it wasn’t until you went back out to the team that you realised it had only been 30 minutes. You made you way back to your seat, JJ smiled as you sat back down eyes and cheeks burning red.


“Morning, I’m Agent Rossi and this is Agent James. Can you give us an update?”

“Agent James? As in the one from the video?” the ME looked you up and down quite obviously holding back a laugh. Tears started return and the burning red of your cheeks was helping no one.

“Yes the one and only” Rossi laughed nudging you.

“Can you just give us an update? Now please, or did you spend too much time watching the video and not enough time doing you job?” You stated abruptly staring the ME down. Rossi let out a small laugh and punched you softly in the arm, you turned to him trying to hide your proud smile.

“Um” He paused, mouth slightly open “Yes…Y… Of course”

The rest of the case followed the same pattern. Each introduction was followed by the same questions and looks:

‘Hi, I’m Agent James.

‘You from the sex tape?’


Well at least that’s how it went in your head.

It was normally followed by a whole load of awkward glances and coughs.


FILM FRIDAY – This is a selection of images created by middle school students from Houston’s Robert M. Beren Academy. I had the opportunity to teach a three-part film photography workshop with the students at the end of this school year. 

Part one involved about 10 minutes of 35mm-film-camera instruction, followed by about 30 minutes of shooting time. For the second session, we learned to process the black-and-white film (HP5+) in class. Finally, the students had a chance to experiment with film scanning, editing via Lightroom and Photoshop, then printing some of their images on Hahnemuele’s beautiful 4X6-inch and new 5X7-inch photo cards. 

The students worked in pairs and were assigned a shot list, challenging them to create images based on symmetry, rule of thirds, leading lines, contrast, repeating patterns, story and a few other parameters.

The entire group was new to the medium of film, and most had only limited experience with digital. The cameras they used for the worksop were all vintage and fully manual (the earliest model being a Contax II rangefinder and the newest being a Nikon FM), and only some had working light meters, if at all. I was impressed with how well most of the students correctly calculated exposure. 

The highlight was how excited the students were throughout the experience. Beren is a Modern Orthodox Jewish day school, known for its academics and Judaics curricula. The school was slated to invest in its digital photography program for next year, but now is planning to launch a new, full-blown film photography unit, instead. 

I’m a self-taught photographer, who only learned film a year ago. I’ve found that it’s great fun to engage kids through this medium, and it’s wonderful to see them connect with it and keep film alive in the process.

Photography has done so much for my life. It’s nice to share that with others–especially kids.
