Hannibal Reflection

1. Our field trip was basically a fun experience to actually see what the Books of Mark Twain contained. It was cool to see Mark Twain's boyhood home and everyone else involved. There was a lighthouse, a cave, and museums with gift shops, candy, and ice cream.
2. I don't feel like learning about mark twain previously really prepared me, it just gave me a better understanding of the museums and I appreciated the trip more.
3. Some things on the riverboat I learned were, although I don't remember them exactly was that mark twain's name came from a riverboat term about the depth. Another was something about a lady who went to the lighthouse and shined the light for the boats or something like that.
4. Some things I learned from the museums was that Mark twain tried a paper business and failed. I also learned that The fence that he got his friends to whitewash is a lot bigger than I thought it would and it was pretty cool.
5. I learned from our tour guide that Jesse James tried to hide in the cave and that someone got married in the cave.
6. My favorite part of the trip was the riverboat ride ride because it was fun to hang out and enjoy the views.
7.  The most fun was climbing the steps up and down the lighthouse because it was tiring but worth it once we got to the top,
8. I would probably improve the lunch situation. Hannibal had some good looking restuarants and I think we should be able to eat there as an option.

History Day Reflection

Our project was on the D-Day beaches of Normandy. It was a very interesting and knowledgeable topic. I didn't know hardly anything about D-Day before this project. I'm glad we chose this topic to research and present it. I agree with the judges on most of our project but honestly, I didn't like what they put for some of the comments on our paper. The most interesting thing I learned from our topic is that one of the U.S generals considered abandoning the whole operation. That really stood out to me. The hardest part was the immense amount of research we had to do. It was also very hard to manage our time wisely while researching. I definitely improved as a learner simply because, I learned so much! We could improve our project by putting more pictures in and fixing the color contrast on our website. I'm most proud of the the way we presented our project to the judges. It was smooth, and we gelled really well together. DEAR FUTURE STUDENTS!! Always remember when doing research to use your time wisely!

My Word

My one word that I think describes me is UNPREDICTABLE. My interests are always changing in music, school, and in everyday life. I like this word because it's a great word for someone is outgoing and willing to try new things (which I am). This word to me means fun and energetic as well. I
think it is a compliment to describe someone who is zany and eccentric.

Iowa State Reflection

At Iowa State, my first class was food science where we learned how to make cheese curds and tofu. We also got to taste some cheese and tofu and rate it on a scale of 1-10. I liked the provolone the best (at least I think it was provolone). My second class was Improvisational Theatre were we did some games as a group like making eye contact, and making really weird, random noises. I was funny and I think it taught a lot of people to learn to be able to laugh at yourself. I think the most educational thing we did at Iowa State was learn about Virtual Reality. I was really cool learning about the different stages of it and how far it's come. The most fun we had was touring the campus and seeing how big the campus really was. If I were to criticize one thing it was that getting lunch on two different floors was a little bit weird. But the food was good. What I really got from it was that every place we visited, everyone was working hard and they had a desire to to a good job at what they wanted to do, It was very inspiring.

Independent Project

     My topic was on Medical Marijuana. I chose it because I don't know much about it and it's pretty controversial. I didn't know that it could be used by brewing and eating it besides smoking it. I would still like to find out what the percentages of people who use marijuana for medical purposes are. I chose to present my facts in a Buncee. I really like all the information that I had on the government side of my project.

DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

1.) 9/11/17 I don't think teenagers should be able to vote because, us kids will most likely do something stupid, and vote for Kanye West or something stupid like that to be funny. In other words, Adult decisions are more mature when it comes to voting. 2.) 9/13/17 If I were invisible for a day, I would steal money from drug dealers, and donate anonymously to as many charities as I could,then I would fly to Dubai first class and jump off the Burj Khalifa, with a parachute of course.
