Term one Reflection

What have I accomplished so far in math this semester? That is a good question, at the beginning of the semester I was a little above average, i knew 1+1=2 that sort of thing but I was above average, i was doing good, living. We started with some astoundingly fun integers (woohoo) that was a bit of a struggle because, I’m above average and I just know so much so when we first got the topic i was like “OK then” truth be told I am not the brightest crayon in the box, so i was just passing, but i wanted to do better to be better (as most entrepreneurs want) but I’m only human i could only do so much, so I was striving for a solid B, not that high and not that low kind of just perfect. Unfortunately i didn’t meet my goal of excellence because well, I guess I wasn’t as committed to my cause as i should have been, but there is always next semester right?

How have you developed? Mentally, I like to think I’ve developed quite a bit, at the beginning of the year I hated math, still do if I’m being honest, but now 5 months later I am learning to be OK-ish with it. Math is gonna be in my life for probably the rest of my life so better learn how to be OK with it not rather then 60 years from now when I’m an old cranky grandma whining to her grand kids or basically any random kids that will listen, and tell them about how much I hate math, instead of tell them that I am OK with it. I think the biggest develop moment or realization that made me develop into the little blossom I am now is that, I am gonna be by myself throughout most of my life I can’t always ask some people for help, I have to learn how be independent and grow by myself, i have to learn how to do this by myself, and i know some teachers are like “You can always ask for help” yes throughout high school you can, but that can only take me so far, i have to learn, grow, and develop by myself.

Narrative Poetry Mood Interpretation

The poem that we chose was the Raven, we chose to do the raven because we wanted something unique and challenging, and the raven was the best fit for what we wanted to accomplish. The overall mood that we decided on for this poem was mysterious. The colors, text and overall presentation in the project was mysterious. We chose to make this mysterious because the whole poem is mysterious, in the sense that there is a knocking at the beginning of the story, a raven then showing up out of the blue and talking, then giving very mysterious hints and clues as to why it was there. Our theme relates to the text of the poem because since it had an overall mysterious mood, we chose to make the theme background grey, a darker color to relate to the mood. For our images we chose to make them black and white to go along with the black raven, and the grey background which all tied in to our mysterious dark mood of the poem that we were identifying.

Digital Footprint

1.How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples

a. if you were to post a picture of you drinking and doing drugs and the business you were trying to get a job at saw something like that then you probably wouldn’t get the job.

b.  if you were cyber bullying someone then you might not be the nicest person in the office, and again probably wouldn’t get the job.

2.Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

a. try not to post pictures of you partying and being irresponsible, like some idiot.

b. don’t cyber bully anyone, because its not very nice, and you probably wont be rewarded for it.

c. if you do post about yourself and personal life try to make it positive and not offensive because it could hurt someone and they could take it personal and you would be to blame.

3. What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?

a. that even if you do something in you “young and reckless” days it could still effect your future job opportunities. i would probably tell someone by either the topic of it coming up or if someone were to do something that could/would effect their future opportunities.
