    How did you try to solve them? (TS)
    I tried making my presentation shorter so it wouldn't bore them as much. And I just played the song for them but everyone else was so loud you could barely hear it. Maybe next time I could use a guitar with an amp. I tried moving but it just got worse. So I stayed in one spot in the corner. Maybe next time I could get there quicker and get a better spot.

    Was with my time management. I got to school and watched the Edutopia video which didn't take long but then I started, getting offtrack, thinking about other stuff, playing songs when I should be doing solos. Another big key to my failure today was with Garage band, I have to record today and I did not have garage band loaded on my phone so it took 30 minutes for me to clear space on my phone and re-download the app. What I am going to do next time is if I know I have to record ill get the app before the class so it won't waste time. With today I am going to have to record more at home which next time I can avoid now knowing what I can do better

    Guitar Portfolio BJW2
    I chose this project because I have really grown in this quarter. I have really practiced and shown great improvement in my plans. Like I said before I will try to play these songs at the dude ranch this summer. With the new finger style picking from Calum Graham, I can now have 2 types of songs to play for them. I chose this because it is my last quarter here and I wanted to really challenge myself. I did, I learned a Calum graham song AND I wrote a song and on the road to writing it I came up with more song ideas. I'm very glad I stuck with this project through the years even when I wanted to quit. I now know that I would have regretted not doing it.

    Guitar Portfolio BJW2
    I chose this as my top project because I have learned to play another type of guitar, not lead, the rhythm guitar. I have also learned this quarter about making solos with tabs and jam along tracks. This was very fun for me because I would be able to play along with drums, a bass, and other guitars and not just me playing solo the whole class period. It made me think like I was in a band on stage somewhere which is very cool. Also, with me working on the tabs I have found cool progressions that I can even play on acoustic that sound very nice, that I will be playing on the trip to the dude ranch with my family this summer. I am very exited to show them and show them also how far i've come from when I was a little dude in 5th grade.

    I chose this reflection because its simple but the fixes make a big difference. it shows my problem solving skills and shows my skills of learning from failure. Like I said in my reflection I would change how I approached it with maybe a different spot, guitar, order of telling the plan of my project.

    DIY Project: Sam and Charlies DIY Project Page
    i feel like i have grown in the project and have learned new things while doing it. also i have learned that DIY is not really for me and that i kept messing up in making slime but the other experiments were fine. also i have learned that i presenting DIY things is hard work. also i had fun in the making of slime and i liked finding recipes and not looking on a website for recipes. also it was fun doing a project with one of my friends. but the down side was we didn't always have supplies to always do what we want to do that day but we would always do something else instead.

    I feel like i have grown as a person in this field and i think i can do much more in the field of robotic and i think in high school i might pressu something like it later on down the road like maybe a robotics class. it was really hard for me because i had these really good designs but i didn't know how to execute them so i just had to keep trying this project really tested my patients and i had a lot o struggle through out the project but in all i had fun and i plan on continuing this project next quarter and i plan on moving to harder robot ideas because i feel like i am ready for the challenge and i feel like it would be really fun to try something new.

    Scratch Project
    I think that I did well on my scratch project.I used super scratch to start it. Than I edited it a lot and make the game better for whoever is playing. I made different sprites and edited almost everything, In the game you have to collect 10 objects to win. But there still are aliens and space ships you have to avoid, if you touch an alien, or a space you will disappear and you have to restart the game by hitting the green flag.
