My Classroom Experience

Throughout this year I have to say that I
had lots of fun. First of all, I learned many
things about the numerous functions on
the computer and programs, like Photoshop
and SharePoint. I also enhanced my typing
skills incredably, from very slow last year to
moderatly faster by the end of this one. Secondly
I really enjoyed all of the projects, even though at
first they would seem very hard or extensive, especially
the Web pages.
Another enjoyable thing from this class were the countless
good times of playing online videogames, I must say
that this is virtually the first time in which I could
play around in class. Finally it all comes down to
one thing: this was quite an enjoyable year and keep
going at it Mrs. Aragon, I hope you enjoy your next
classes as much as this one!

My Web design video

For my video project I decided to do it on
skiing. Why? Well, when we first started
I began using the sample pictures which
most of which were snowy mountains,
and ice. So with that I thought,"Why
not make it on skiing?" And so I started
off with that and for some time it looked
good, but then I noticed that it wasn't long
enough so I searched up a ski video of a
guy who was skiing, and let me just say that
he wasn't too good.
After I had all of the pictures and footage I
set off to work by placing them in the appropriate
frame and then adding the effects like that one that
made it look like an old film and the slide transitions.
Finally I added the titles and it came out pretty good,
in my opinion.

School Rules

Well, I think that the school rules have their
reasons to be there. For example, that one
about electronic devises has both is pros and
cons. First of all, with it students can't be tempted
to cheat by texting eachother in class to get
answers, and also aren't distracted too much,
increasing the likelyness that student will pay
attention in class. That's mostly the main
objective for this rule, I think, to avoid distractions.
But as everything has its ups, this rule also has its
downs. Putting the case, let's say you have and
emergency and need to call home, the office might
provide their phone, which is easy for one person,
but if everyone in school lacks a phone they will all
need it, creating quite a stir-up if more than five
people need to use it immediatly. So, I guess, what
you should do is carry your stuff but don't get caught.

What my life will be like in 20-30 years from now

Well, first things first, the first thing that comes
to my mind is that during that time period Jehovah
will bring forth his judgement day to rid the earth
of all the sinful people who don't seek forgiveness.
How can I say this with such certainty? Well, the
very Bible gives us these comfort-giving promises,
for example, the one written in Psalms 37:10,11 ,
"And just a little while longer, and the wicked
one will be no more; And you will certainly
give attention to his place, and he will not be.
But the meek ones themselves will possess

the earth, And they will indeed find their
exquisite delight in the abundance of peace."
Here we are told the very promise giving us hope
that soon, very soon now, all of the wicked ones,
including Satan, will be destroyed and we will
finally feel total happiness in these new peaceful
conditions. But, by now you are probably asking
yourself, "How soon is this "soon"?" Well one thing
that the Bible tells us that no one but Jehovah knows
the exact time when this day will come. But the
Bible does tell us what would be the signs of the
conclusion of the system of things as said in Matthew
24:7,8 ,"For nation will rise against nation and kingdom
against kingdom, and there will be food shortages
and earthquakes in one place after another. All
these things are a beginning of pangs of distress."
As you can see, these are the very things that we
see nowadays so it is only a matter of time before
the wicked ones are cut from existence. We have
complete faith that Jehovah God will keep his word
because we are given the very fact that Jehovah
cannot lie in Titus 1:2. So through these 20 to 30
or even if we have to wait more years I will keep in
expectation for that day for like we are promised
in Habakkuk 2:3 ,"For [the] vision is yet for the
appointed time, and it keeps panting on to the
end, and it will not tell a lie. Even if it should delay,
keep in expectation of it; for it will without fail
come true. It will not be late." That's right,
even if that day would delay, it won't come late.

School Grading System

Well, I think that the actual grading system
has its flaws and gaps. Why? I think it would
be better for all of the students if they could
pass each grade level according to their overall
grade thoughout the year. This is good because
many students tend to get really nervous when
they know that a test is coming, therefore due
to that nervousness they run the risk of failing
it and going blank.
Of course as everything else, this also has its cons.
Some students aren't so good with classwork while
others struggle year-round to get a decent grade
average, without mentioning that some tend to
lose their work frequently, resulting in an even
lower grade. So as you can see, this grading system
has its pros and cons and its flaws giving proof that
for now, until Jehovah God's perfect rule that will
restore perfection to mankind that is fearful of him,
all humans are imperfect and therefore cannot
make perfect guidelines.

My Crazyest Dream

Well, I rarely dream, or if I do I can't remember
what the dream was, but one I do remember was
a time in which my family and I were happily
dining with some Brothers from our congregation.
You see, I have the big desire to invite some Brothers
over to our house to eat something and in the process
have a little laugh or two, but you see, where I live is
way too small to be able to invite them over especially
because our Brothers and Sisters, our friends, have
large families, so they wouldn't all be able to eat
comfortably. So I guess that the reason for me dreaming
these things is mainly because of that reason, the desire
to invite them over, but the inability to do so. And
with something like that in your head then there's
no wonder that I would also dream on it.
You know dreams occur with something happening in the
brain which stimulates you to dream, right? Well,
this very fact is another way in which our very
body praises Jehovah God. How? Well, in the past King
David wrote Psalms 139:14 were he praised Jehovah
by saying,"I shall laud you because in a fear-inspiring
way I am wonderfully made.Your works are
wonderful,As my soul is very well aware." And by
contemplating the very work of Jehovah by looking at
ourselves and seeing our unbelievable functionality
we can make echo to King David's words by being
thankful to this generous gift, which also includes
our wondrous brain.

Spring Break

During Spring Break I did many things. One of
them was that Brother De Leon invited me to
go, along with other Brothers, to help remodel
another Kingdom Hall, which is one of the many
places in which we, as Jehovah's Witnesses, worship
Jehovah God. Since Brother De Leon has a carpeting
business, he has been put in charge to recarpet
different Kindom Halls throughout this area, so
on Saturday March 21 we went to carpet the Kingdom
Hall. It was a hard job, but finally when we finished
it ended up looking great. Besides, my favorite part
was that I got to socialize with all our Brothers and
also that I was further trained in the art of carpeting.
Another thing that I did during our week off was,
along with my mom and our Brothers and Sisters
of our congregation, take part in preaching the Word
of Jehovah God and all of his promises. What was really
fun was that we were able to start early in the morning,
from about 7:20, to about 12:00. Of course, my favorite
part, as always, was that not only was I worshiping Jehovah,
but also the partnership in working alongside my Brothers
and Sisters.
