Reflective Blog Entry

I think I have had a major improvement socially and technologically.  On the first day of school, I didn't even know a Mac existed, or even how to close out of a browser.  I'm almost getting better with Macs than I am with PCs.  Socially I have improved in a major way in my opinion.

I am proud of my improvement and my two scenes.  And to think I was about to drop out of this school in the beginning of the year! The two scenes were probably my best projects for being so short.  In my opinion the others are completely horrible!

The most challenging project so far was probably the Thematic Causes.  I had so many problems trying to reach the time constraints.  I ended up just adding a few no movement slides and talk about it to waste time.  I had major problems in the beginning of the year, mainly making friends.  If you haven't noticed, I'm not exactly the most outgoing person here.  I figured new school, new me.  I used to be that outgoing, loud mouth kind of person, but would you of noticed if I ever wrote this? Would you of thought of it? Would you of ever asked? Ask yourself.

My hope for the next semester is to drastically improve my projects.  Maybe also improve my public speaking.  My goal is to become more of a "everyone's friend." A little less silent maybe.

My favorite moment for the year is when we had the "How many gifted kids does it take to turn down the temperature." Ms. Bailin asks Riley to turn down the temperature.  She thought she would rip it off the wall.  So three more kids have to go and attempt to help her open the thermostat.  They all just can't get it open!  So, Ms. Bailin gets up and does it herself.
