Fast Plant Reflection
Planting these plants were something else. I feel like everytime we planted our seeds someone moved our cube from the water and light or they just died. I did not expect that to happen, I thought our plants were going to grow and be alive. Instead, they grew a little bit than died. I feel like our plants didn’t thrive at all. I don’t think our plants were in the right environment, there was to much messing up. We replanted about three or four times and it was the results each time. I had hope that they would be alive and grow, but that’s not what happened. We did everything correct, so I don’t know how the plants kept dying. Overall, this project was kind of fun. We had to keep track of the plants and that teaches you to be responsible. It’s almost like taking care of a baby.
The item we used to light up is a cell phone case. A phone case resembles a phone to us. Our phones are very important to us. Heather and I thought about doing many different things but it came down to us using a phone case. We both use our phones every day along with many others. People can use their phones to call, text, go on social media, take pictures, videos, play games, listen to music and many other things. Phones take up a lot of everybody’s day along with ours. It made sense to use a phone case because it is small and it easily can represent us. Being able to represent ourselves in physics was interesting. We both worked together to create ideas along with the final product. There were roadblocks along the way of this process but we did not give up. Some parts were challenging but overall it was fun to create a project using physics along with our everyday lives. The phone case says that we use our phones but also that we use them in meaningful ways. Students can use their phones if they forget their laptops and they can use them for simple things like looking up a definition or emailing a teacher if they are not right next to their laptop. The phone case says Heather and I can use materials in different ways along with the fact we can put a deeper meaning into the product. This project was difficult at times and there was a rush at the end, but we had fun doing it and we put a lot of work and meaning into it.
I’m Heather Lopez. I’m 15 years old. Philadelphia is my hometown and I love living here. There’s lots of different foods and things to do in the city. As I put in my room with the makeup table and dress holder, I love fashion and doing makeup ever since I was young. I put a symbol of Temple University and nursing gear because in my future I plan to go to Temple and study to be a nurse. That’s been my dream since I was little.
When I’m online I try to be myself. I post what I want and what I like, I don’t really care what people think. I don’t post anything racist or anything that would offend someone. I do take a second look and re-think what I’m about to post. I don’t think about or care what people will think or say on what I wear or look like.
I know that I’m a nice and chill person, but I also know other people might not think that. On my social media pages I do come off as that. I know I can also come off as mean or rude but it’s only because weirdos are commenting on the stuff I post and I don’t want that so I just tell them to stop and block them.
I Always think about what I’m posting. I re-read and look over the picture or quote because even though it might not offend me or my friends, it could to someone else who follows me. Other people can be more sensitive than others and actually take things to heart or be offended.
The pros about posting online is that you can share information with others from all over the world. News can be shared, pictures, and many other things. You could also meet new people from sharing and resharing posts. There are also many other good thing about sharing and posting things too. Cons about sharing are that people could hate on what you post. People also can troll you, say rude things, or make fun of you. Also, arguments can happen under a post because they were offended or some other reason that you didn’t realize.
Lack of control online can lead to some bad things. If you don’t control what you post and not care bad things could happen. A lot of things online are also permanent, you might have deleted what you posted but someone could have saved it, screenshotted, or reshared before you had the chance to delete it. Anything you post can be spread quickly and you might not even know.
I think professional jobs should do a social media background check. Not if you’re going to work at McDonalds. If I was to hire someone in a law firm I wouldn’t want them to be reckless and posting it on social media, it’s making my business look bad. If they did a background check on your social media and you’re applying at McDonald's, it’s pointless because is just extra cash until kids get out of high school. Even if you’re not in high school it’s still pointless because it’s kind of simple work.
Free speech is where you have the freedom to say whatever you want. There are certain words that you shouldn’t say because it’s racist or offensive in some way to someone. You’re protected if you’re not saying rude things to someone or offending someone. What you’re not going around saying racial slurs or anything else harmful you’ll be protected.
Internet trolls are people who spreads things all other the internet. They are annoying. They get into your business online and try to make you feel bad about yourself. Some say that internet trolls have “no life” so they try to make others feel bad about themselves because that’s how they’re feeling.
Internet trolling can be stopped if people would just stay out of others business online. Don’t comment when it’s not necessary or don’t start stupid arguments under an Instagram picture. Nobody like trolls.
They pros of posting online anonymously is that no one will know who you are if you posting some type of a personal post. Also, if a job is looking for your social media they won’t find it. The cons are that some people might want to know who’s posting the picture. Someone could also find out who you were posting about if you were talking or posting about someone.
