End of the Year Reflection:
This year has been a good year for me. I think I have learned a lot this year and have also got a lot done. I think this year has been my most productive year. I think this year I have been more focused with all of my projects. Last year I did not always want to find a new way to fix problems how ever I think I have been solving all of my problems well this year.

I think I have become a better learner than last year. I say this meaning I think I actually understood the the stuff I was doing other than last year where I think I just always went along with it. I think I have been more successful this year because now I have a better under standing for thinking and the different stuff you have to do in it. I think last year I was still getting used to this class and now I think I am a better student because of it.

All in all, a good 2014/2015 year.

3
3 1/2
I / We think... It is starting to get easier to learn songs because this song when just started learning and Gabe and Shane are already done recording so I think we are really learning guitar well
12/6/15
We were going to continue working on fall for you but now the group wants to pick a new song and we have been searching for new song ideas.
3
3
I / We think... This is not the kind of song that we want to learn so instead we are switching at a song that we would all in joy better.The new song we are going to learn is closing time.
12/19/14
We are starting are new song fall for you that we will be stating to learn this week
3
2.5
I / We want to know... what another way to learn the songs are because some of the members in the group are having trouble keeping up and we need to make sure everyone is on the same page.
12/10/14
We are going to record all together today and see if we can successfully get all of are parts together
3
3
One way I/we showed resilience was ... we had LOTS of trouble with all threes of us recording. either one of us could not do are parts right, or we would start at different time. Luckly however in the end we finish our final recording for wish you were here.
12/3/14
We are having lots of issues but hopefully we can finish the song this week. and I mean ACTUAL finish
3

- What did you learn about your topic/tool? It is very hard to try to play guitar at the same time in harmony. we were trying to record today and me and gabes parts we play at the same time and we could not finish because it was hard for us to play at the same time for a long time
11/19/14
We just got done learning the beginning
3
1
I / We think... that we will 100% finish up the entire song by next week. Unfortunatly it was a very unproductive day because me and gave had lots of trouble trying to play the new cordes. A lot of the new chords me and gabe are learning are hard to learn and you need to move your fingers farther than a lot of the other chords we have learned.
11/5/14
We are planning on finishing wish you were here this week, and we are going fast with learning it so far so we might even get are recordings on here

End of the year reflections:
I/we demonstrated character by ... I demonstrate character by being a reliable team mate. If I need to do something for the group I will get it done for the group. All of my projects have had other people in them too so I have had too be very reliable.
