My Take on Origami
I think I like origami for a few different reasons.
How many people do you know that know origami? Unless you have found an origami club, its not likely that you know that many people who can fold anything other than a flapping bird. I had a friend that drove me home one day when I was in high school. While we were driving I folded her a little bull dog. I then graduated and didn’t see her for 2 or 3 years.Then I got back in touch with her and ended up hanging out. Guess what? My little origami bull dog was still on her dash board.
As a poor college student I know how annoying it is to have expensive hobbies (musical instruments, fancy computers). However, all origami requires is paper, and even my really stingy friend has paper in his room. In fact, I can usually use other people’s paper if I tell them I am going to make something cool out of it!
I mean, I just turned a boring piece of paper into a threatening T-Rex while waiting for a friend to finish going to the bathroom! You would be amazed at how many people think my little works of origami are awesome.
This one can be a lie sometimes… There are some pretty tough origami models out there. However, if you are just getting started and are making some of the simpler models it isn’t that bad. I think the hardest part is figuring out how to read the origami diagrams.
