Rose, Bud and Thorn (fun reflecting game)

Hey everyone! This is my first thread Smiley Happy and i'm excited to share this, which I learned from one of my favourite teachers at university.

 

Basically, you give an answer to what your rose, thorn and bud is. A rose is something good that happened to you today. A thorn is something that challenged you today. Finally, a bud is something you are looking forward to!

 

I find this is a great activity to get to know people, as well as reflect on your day! I'll start! 

 

Rose - I had a nice sleep in today.

Bud - I'm trying to balance my technology use.

Thorn - I'm looking forward to zoom calling a friend today!

bud: I'm excited to rewatch Kipo & the Age of Wonderbeasts when I have the time again!

Hey everyone! This is such an awesome thread, thanks for the tag Smiley Happy 

 

Rose = the weather was so beautiful so I went for a walk with my sister

Thorn = I have a massive uni assignment due in a couple of days

Bud = it's my one of my friend's birthday this week so I really excited to catch up with her and my group cause it's been a little bit since I last saw them

 

Question as a new member to ReachOut, how do you add gifs to your post? I always see people posting these really funny and cute gifs but have no idea how to do it!

 

Hope everyone has a lovely day!
