    Origami Dreams

    Discussion started by westy - May 17, 2005

    Being bored at work one day I decided to start looking up some origami diagrams and learn a thing or two. I find that it relaxes me and clears my mind. Now I'm totally hooked because shit is addicting, and anytime there is paper lying around..... Just learned a few things so far: throwing stars, fox, pig, crane, leaping frog, and remeber those paper things in elementary school that you put your hand in and your friend picks a number, then a color and they get a "fortune." So anyone else on this tip?

    I just made one of those cranes - oh my that was hard, haha. I have to say i didn't find it too relaxing, bit of stress creeping in at some points aswell, but after i get good at it, i can see how it'll be relaxing.
    Im reaching for some paper now......

    I think fiagaro can't read, no graff content what? Someday I'll be closeminded too, and sleep, eat, shit, think nothing but dope burners and rooftops....

    exactly.

    god forbid someone is into something other than graffiti. they might be in danger of becoming an interesting person.

    keep up with the origami. awesome hobby to have

    used to be an origami nut when i was a kid. made all kinds of stuff which is functionally useless. it's fun to do nonetheless when there's not much else to do.
