I remember sitting at the table with my siblings.
Sitting at the table, talking with each other and nibbling.
Then our mom came downstairs, telling us she was expecting.
I didn’t know how to feel, my feelings were affected.
For 9 months, I couldn’t wait to be a big brother again.
Absorbing everything I needed to know into my brain.
I couldn’t wait to teach my little sister everything I knew.
Like how to play video games and why you shouldn’t eat glue.
Then that’s when I got the news.
I couldn’t believe it, I wish it was untrue.
She died right at birth, she didn’t even get a chance at life.
I wanted to die at that moment, don’t care if it was by a gun or knife.
I didn’t want to go to the funeral. My heart was in too many little pieces.
The rage inside me kept increasing.
I cried and cried, wishing she got a chance.
But I knew I had to keep going, I had to advance.
4 years later, I’m still wishing I had her in person.
I thought the depression would worsen.
But I have her urn so she’s still with me.
I’ll never forget you Kiyah. R.I.P.
When I first heard that I was getting another younger sister, I didn’t how to feel.
I wanted to be excited but I needed to be real.
You should always be excited when you getting a baby.
But at the same time, I was so jealous it was crazy.
In the first month, my jealousy was increasing.
It kept boiling, it kept heating.
Then my mom told me all the wonders of getting a baby sister.
My jealousy went away and my excitement got bigger.
Looking back at it today, my jealously really was stupid.
However, I guess jealousy is one part of being human.
Luckily it went away and I had a chance to be excited.
One day, me and Kiyah will be united.
I gotta ask myself one question.
What would it be like if Kiyah survived?
This question got me dealing with depression.
This question is making me not wanna be alive.
If she survived, what would I teach her?
I had so much, what would I start with?
When she died, all that knowledge became a blur.
I want her back alive, that’s my only wish.
It’s no point in wishing though.
Wishes are fake just like a lot of things.
All I can do is let the tears flow.
And continue to go on with the things I care about as my wings.
Q1- For this project, I had to create a website. The website had to be all about me. The goal of the project was to tell information on me so that people would know. I think this project was a failure. I say that because I didn’t achieve everything I wanted.
Q2- For this project, I had to learn codes and do them to solve puzzles. I then had to record a video of me doing the project. The goal of this project was to learn codes and solve puzzles. This project was much better than my first one. I achieved mostly everything I wanted to
Q3- For this project, I had to create 3D model (although I didn’t have to print it out). I decided to do a meme for this project. The meme was called it’s time to stop. I created it by creating a clock with a circle, an arrow, and inside of the clock, I wrote stop all around it. I then wrote over the clock “oh boy would you look at time?” The goal of this project was to create an image that could be 3D modeled. I feel like I did that and it was a good project.
The reason I chose to do this project is because I didn’t finish everything I needed for it. There were still levels that I needed to complete. One was the “For Loops” level. I wanted to particularly do this one because I felt like it was easy and I didn’t try hard enough on it. That’s why I wanted to do it.
Your high point of the course when it comes to your learning.
A high point of the course when it comes to learning is being able to hear directions once and then not need help for the majority of the class.
An area of growth for you.
An area of growth for me is being able to do my projects better. I went from a really bad 1st quarter project to a really good 3rd quarter project.
How you have used or could use a skill or technique you learned this year outside of this class.
I could use my knowledge of making a website to help people make a website if they want to make one or need to make one.
An idea you want to pitch for a project for next year's class.
A project I want to pitch for next year is creating a music video. I think this would be good because not only is it something fun, it will also help kids learn about technology.
3 tips for anyone taking this class.
Listen to the teacher and pay attention. If you don’t, you could miss something that will mess up your project or assignment.
Finish your work early. If you wait until the last minute to do it, you could mess up or not get everything you wanted.
Work your hardest. If you don’t, you won’t get a good enough grade.
My project was to make a popular meme using 3D modeling. What I hoped to learn is how to create a 3D image using simple tools and shapes. To create my meme, I had to create a clock with the word stop going around it. To do this, I had to get a circle and expand it. I then had to add a rectangle and put a triangle on top of it to be the hand. The success I had was actually creating the clock. A failure I had was putting the words in the clock. I overcame it by taking my time and not rushing. What I learned through this project is that taking your time will always be better rushing. What I learned about myself is that I work better when I’m focused than when I’m not. If I could do this project differently, I would probably try to add more stuff to the model. Some tips for people doing this project is do something you want to do and know you can do. This project has inspired to create more 3D models. The tool that I used help convey the message I was trying to make because Tinkercad has many options that you can use to create something. I wanted to show that in my project, I can use a lot of stuff which would portray the message that I’m versatile.

My project is all about me. It talks about things about me, my resume, and a project I did last year. My goal throughout this project was to tell everyone some things about me. What I hoped to learn throughout this project was how to create a website and all the different parts of a website. And I did learn those two things. To make this website, I first had to find a website. I had one at first but I decided to change it. After that, I had to create my Home page, About Me page, Resume page, and Project page. I then added information on the pages and I was done. One failure I had was that my first website deleted all my stuff so I had to use another website. What I learned besides the other two things about my website is that you always need a backup plan. What I learned about myself is that I learned I have more accomplishments than I thought. If I was to do this project differently, I would add more pictures. A tip I would tell others doing this project is make you have another website just in case your first website doesn’t work out. This project didn’t really inspire me although it was fun. I think the message dictated the medium because this entire project was about me.
Artist Statement- We chose the skateboard symbol because it is visually appealing. We chose the skateboard because I (aj) skateboard on my spare time. In my hood they call me AnTONY Hawk.
Who am I Online
I am nobody online. I don’t appear as anyone online. People can’t percieve me because I don’t really appear online. I consider if what I post will offend anyone and if it’s too graphic.Pros of posting online- Can become popular, express your feelings, voice your opinion. Cons of posting online- Can be hated on, people can have a negative opinion on you, could hurt someone else’s feeling. Once you post someone online, you have a lack of control over what you posted. Also, when you post something, it can stay on the internet permanetly. Lastly, when you post on online, people will immediantly see what you posted. I think that company owners shouldn’t check your social media background, because they might judge you over it and you’re not a bad person. Free speech is the ability to say whatever you want. Nothing is protected from saying something. An internet troll is someone who says something on the internet to make something feel bad and enjoys it.They enjoy it when people get sad or mad. We can stop trolling by ignoring the trolls. The pros of posting anonymously are you can get internet famous and post your opinions online. The cons of posting anonymously are you can get hated on and people can judge your opinions in a harsh way. Never post something offensive. Never post something inappropriate. Always ignore a troll.
