PROJECT IN PROGRESS:

Miyah and I presented our project on Friday May 31.  It went very smoothly but wasn't nearly as good as the ones presented before us.  Our project listed all the subjects we learned in this class throughout the year, and showed that we do know what we're talking about.  It's sad to say that this would be the last presentation I will give for Dr. Preston:(

PROJECT IN PRGRESS

today in class while Preston worked with other students, my partner and I talked about our project and what we were going to do.  We ended up decided to make a website on the four major subjects we learned this year.

Brag Sheet

What I have done that I'am most proud of is stay in school and get good grades.  Not everyone can say that as confident as I can.  Many times I have thought about what it would be like to just quit and drop out, but I knew that wasn't the right choice for me.  There's a saying I learned this year in Preston's class, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going", and that exactly what I do.


  • My academic achievements:  I can confidently say I've earned a GPA of 3.0 or better throughout high school.  Freshman year I received the Golden Warrior Award in my Earth Science class and I aspire to earn more as the year progresses. 
  • Sports:  I have played basketball for eight years now.  I'am so thankful I tried out for the Girls Righetti High School Basketball Team because it has made me the person I'am today and has had so many benefits.  
  • Volunteer:  I have had numerous volunteering jobs.  Freshman year I helped set up Solvang's annual bike tour.  It was a very nice experience meeting all the different people there and serving them. Another volunteering job I've had was working at Solvang's Cancer Center doing whatever I could to help the patients there.  Keeping all the patients company and helping around the office was something I'll never forget.
  • Languages: I've grown up around big family of Spanish speaking relatives.  I took two years of Spanish throughout high school and still am learning more and more Spanish each and everyday. 
  • Awards: I have earned many awards while in basketball and school.  I've been asked to attend Righetti's Renascence Awards numerous times for my excellent grades.
  • Travel: I have been all across the country traveling to multiple states varying from up and down the coast of California, to the Lone Star state of Texas, and all the way to the corn fields in Iowa.  
  • Interests: I have many interests.  Some of my favorites are painting, listening to music, and being outdoors.
  • GPA: One of the most important things about school are your grades, and I'am proud to say that I've earned a 3.0 or better throughout my school years.

"BEST OF AMERICAN LIT"

What I remember most about this year is not about a certain subject, but how to use the computer as my advantage in school.  Before Preston's class I hardly used my computer at all.  After I use it nearly everyday.  Realizing how our blogs can be seen by anyone around the world just amazes me and we can use them to contact people for advice or just post something that we want others to see.

: DERBY REPORTAGE

The narrator (I couldn't quite catch his name) is a reporter from San Francisco.  He is meeting an English illustrator, Ralph Steadmen, to write an article about the Kentucky Derby.  There ultimate goal is to capture someone who was drunk and messy to get the full effect of what the race was like in reality.  At the end of the story the narrator looks in the mirror and realizes that they were the perfect examples of this hag, drunk, sloppy derby regular.  This is Gonzo Journalism because they put themselves into the story which is a big no-no in regular journalism.  I noticed the sentences are very choppy because he is writing everything as soon as he thinks it.

"JOHNNY CYBERPUNK"

Johnny has a device that was implanted in his brain that carries secret information.  He meets a girl names Molly that has had surgery to make her fingernails like razor blades.  When she sits down at the table her and Lewis get into an argument and he tries to hit her and she slices his arm.  Johnny fires his gun at the bad guy because he had surgery that makes him faster.


This story is cyberpunk because it has science fictional qualities in it.
