All About Me – Myranda

My trip to Mexico
3 years ago I was told that I was going to Mayan Rivera Mexico.
I remember being so happy about going somewhere I haven’t been and wanted to go. Being told we were going was like bells going off in my head, I had Never been anywhere besides anywhere in Canada or The United states. I remember waiting along time to go to mexico because we planned it around September and were going in the summer. Finally the day had come where we were going to mexico. When we arrived at the airport to leave Vancouver we found a candy shop. There was giant candy bars, And mike and ike’s. When we were on the plane I remember being very anxious to be in this place I had been dreaming about for ages, and getting to go there and see every beautiful aspect of mexico. When we landed I remember looking out the window and seeing flames beside the runway and dead trees and grass everywhere. It honestly looked like it was all a joke the whole mexico is paradise thing. I immediately wanted to go home because it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. We then got out of the plane we went into the airport and I immediately saw that the signs indicating where to go where in Spanish Korean and then English. I then heard that everyone was talking in Spanish and not very many people were speaking English. When we got to the point of getting our passports checked by the ladies at security the one woman tried to speak to me in Spanish. My face immediately turned into a face of confusion, She then picked up that I knew very little Spanish such as please and thankyou. She then attempted English and did pretty well she asked if I had ever been to mexico and I responded no. After we passed the gates and exchanged our money we went into a bus where two guys were commentating and explaining things not to do in mexico.
When we arrived at the resort I realized that this is what I had been looking for in the images I had been looking at and dreaming about. When we got there they gave us some refreshing delicious drink to welcome us, Then they took us on a ride to our room on a speedy fast golf cart. I was surprised that the driver didn’t hit anyone. When we got to the room I noticed that the air in the room was way colder than the air outside. So when you left the room its like a wave of hot steaming humid air hits you. It like walking into a very hot cement wall. As soon as you walked into the sun it felt like your skin was burning off you and that u were melting in the humid air. After swimming in the pool all day and re-applying sun screen, I burned bad. My mom had to put after sun and aloe vera on my skin. It felt like putting cold yogurt all over your skin. If you touched it it felt like you were touching a pool of glue. The next day we woke up and went to the buffet. There was all different types of foods and they all smelt very different. i tried a bunch of foods that are normal things that us Canadians eat. But they all tasted different, The pancakes tasted like They had some kind of spice in them and the bacon tasted like as if it was under cooked. Chicken nuggets in mexico are made with the dark meat so that is just different but doesn’t taste different. Burgers tasted the same. Everyday I would have around 7 virgin strawberry margaritas which tasted like heaven was coming down upon you. They were slushy and flavorful and blended well. They also had entertainment shows at night. They had a lot of volunteering and then you voted on which person had done it better. Sadly the trip ended just as my sunburn did and we left feeling really sad. We all wished we got the 2 week pack.

  1. B) Can you write an equation relating the hours worked (h) and wages earned (W)?

14x       12x

 

  1. Graph the two tables on graph paper. (Or if you prefer, use your device or desmos to make a digital graph then screen clip it into your assignment)
  2. Which of these two jobs would you prefer to have based on this information and why? What are some other factors to consider when comparing the two jobs?

I would pick the subway job because first off because it has a better pay and second off you get tips if people are lucky. Some of the factors to compare are the price and hours.

6. You want to save $1,000. Pick one of the jobs. State how many hours a week you could work while going to school. How long will it take to save the money, assuming you have no expenses or taxes to pay?

Say I work 4-10pm that 6 hours a day. I work 5 days a week after school.          14x(6)= 84$

It should take me about a 2 ½ weeks of work to make enough                     84 x 5= 420$

The friday everything changed

The Friday everything changed.

 

  1. The boys were upet about the girls carrying the water bucket because that meant that they would skip class and that the teacher thought they were big and strong.
  2. The strategies that the boys used to pressure the girls to give in were not letting them play softball because they locked the teams with only boys for the whole week. The girls stuck together.
  3. A girls view in the class, were seeing this for the POV of the student. She thinks the teacher is nice, strict, kind hearted.
  4. During world war 2, they were more surprised by the girls getting the water then getting bombed by a plane. They all live with eachother in this little classroom throughout the day. This is a person vs person. The girls want to change that only the boys can carry the water bucket.
  5. Alma because she asked the question that changed the story
  6. Things are changing and the people are people.

My employment opportunity is subway ( Burnaby,BC) This employment can benefit me in the future with cooking jobs. You do not need any job requirements to work at subway. You dont need any experience so i have that, But i do know how to make sandwiches, i mean shouldn’t everyone know how to make sandwiches? You have to be graduated from high school to get a job at subway, no experience needed.

Im researing the aquatics aspects in port Coquitlam for swimming lessons. This could benefit me by working with children and getting a better resume for job hire in the future. I like swimming so thats why i decided to go with a swimming lesson volunteering job.

Elements

  1. What is an element that reacted with many other elements? Which elements did it react with?                                                                                                                 – Chlorine acted with alot of elements. It reacted with lithium, hydrogen, potassium, gold, sodium, And probably alot of other elements.
  2. What is an elements that did not react with any elements? Which elements did it not react with?                                                                                                                                                             – Helium. It didn’t react with chlorine.

  3. Why do you think some elements reacted with each other and others didn’t?                                – I think that some elements didn’t react with eachother because they cancel eachother out and that the ones that react together have made a new element.

  4. Do you think there may be a pattern to how the periodic table is arranged? Does it relate to how elements react with each other?                                                                                                                        – I think the periodic table is arranged by different groups of materials and how strong/reactive they are.
