If you want to have a good job, you have to try, and get good grades. To get a good job, you have to put effort into school. You won't get anywhere in life if you don't try. You have to try to accomplish something to get a good career. This will apply to me as a student by saying if I want a good career, I have to put an effort into school, and my grades. If someone wants to accomplish something, they have to try. "You can't be anything you want to be, you can only be what you deserve to be." You can't get a good career if you don't try, and care about your grades. You can only get a good career if you try hard as a student and if you care about your grades. Trying hard in school can help you accomplish getting a good career.
I learned that it's hard to come up with the cations, or memory tricks because you have to think about what could be easy to learn from, and put it to words. If I could change one thing about the assignment, it would be not having to come up with the memory tricks for each term because it was harder to come up with the tricks instead of the definitions. Yes, this assignment will help me remember the terms in the future. Yes, the terms will help me prepare for the test because I can study the terms so if the test uses them in a question, I'll know what to do to answer them. Through-out this assignment, I learned how hard people have to think, and work to make posters. They have to come up with a memory trick, and put a picture that goes with it.
If someone is planning a crime, the FBI could figure more out about the crime to stop it. The FBI should be allowed to hack into Apple iPhones.
The FBI want to hack into Apple phones. According to Randall G. Holcombe author of Apple CEO was right to defend basics, “Last December, Farook and his wife killed 14 people in a mass shooting in San Bernardino. Because of the privacy features of the iPhone, the FBI could not search Farook’s phone for information about the attack without Apple’s help. When Apple refused, the FBI sought to force the company to help by taking it to court.” If Apple allowed the FBI to hack into iPhones, the FBI could figure out if someone is planning a crime. The FBI only wants to hack into iPhones for safety reasons. Apple should let the FBI hack into iPhones to keep everyone safe from mass shootings, or something else. Many people can be killed if the Apple doesn’t let the FBI hack into iPhones because the FBI can’t see when someone is planning a crime or mass shootings. Without Apple’s help, the FBI can’t track whether or not someone is planning something. If Apple let the FBI hack into the iPhones, they could’ve figured out more about the attack on Farook. With Apple’s help, the FBI can stop a lot more crimes.
Apple believes people with iPhones have a right to their privacy. “Apple phones have features that protect the privacy of the information on them, and the Fourth Amendment guarantees people this right to privacy. Americans have the right to possess information without having to share it with the government. And Apple has the right to provide products that help Americans protect this right. Yes, the Fourth Amendment also says the government has a right to search personal property if it has a warrant and probable cause. But it does not say that third parties, like a technology company, can be forced to aid the government in its searches.” (Flora, 2016) Apple doesn’t want to let the FBI hack into iPhones for people’s privacy. If Apple lets the FBI hack into iPhones, the people don’t have their Fourth Amendment. Everyone has the right to the Fourth Amendment. People should be allowed to choose whether or not they want the FBI to hack into their iPhone. The rights of the people are important in a situation like this because if the people don’t want someone to hack into their phones, they should get the right to say they don’t want someone to hack into them. The people’s Fourth Amendment is their right, and nobody can take it from them. Everyone has the right to their own privacy.
If someone is planning a crime, the FBI can see details about the crime. “However, the issues raised by this controversy have not been resolved and we should expect a replay in the future. That’s why it’s important to understand why Apple was right to take the principled position it did. Basic American rights were at stake, and the purpose of law is to protect people’s rights. Consider what the FBI asked Apple to do. The FBI did not ask Apple to turn over information it already had. This was nothing like a search warrant.”(Holcombe, 2016) The FBI is only trying to keep the people safe. Without Apple’s help, many people could get hurt or even die. The FBI isn’t trying to get the information it already has, but more to it. If Apple would just let the FBI hack into their iPhones, more people wouldn’t be at the risk of getting hurt. The FBI wanting to hack into Apple’s iPhones is nothing like a search warrant. The FBI is just trying to keep the people with iPhones safe. The FBI doesn’t want information it already has, but different information to hack into their phones.
Apple should let the FBI hack into their iPhones. To keep people safe, the FBI wants to hack into Apple iPhones. Everyone has a right to their own privacy. The FBI can find more about a crime to stop it.

“Clearly, not all stars crumble under the pressures of fame. Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Will Smith, and Justin Timberlake, all of whom became famous as teens, seem to be doing fine.”Being famous sounds amazing, but with the amount of stress it puts on people I wouldn’t want to be famous.
Being a celebrity could mean that you might not know who you are or who your true friends are. “But according to Rockwell, it can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and make and keep true friends.” If someone famous needs a true friend, they might not have any. Celebrities don’t know who their true friends are because they don’t know if they want to be friends with them because they are famous or because they want to actually be their friends. Is being famous worth all the perks?
It can be a great time being famous also. “Plus, she gets amazing perks, like free clothes from top designers, front-row seats at prestigious award shows, and trips around the world.” Being famous can have it's perks like getting front-row seats at prestigious award shows. You can take trips around the world, and get free clothes from top designers. It could be great to be famous because of all the perks there are. Getting a front row seat at an award show, trips around the world, or free clothes, all can be amazing.
The happiness from being famous isn’t always going to be there. “Turns out, the happiness that comes from fame is fleeting.” Being famous isn’t going to keep you happy. Happiness doesn’t come from the fame or the fortune. The happiness from the fame, and the fortune is just fleeting. It’s not always going to make someone happy, they might not like the photographers all the time. Not everyone will enjoy being famous. Being famous isn’t worth the fake happiness. Being famous can either make someone happy or stressed. The happiness celebrities felt when they first became famous isn’t going to stay, the happiness level will change throughout how famous someone actually is.
Being famous can make you happy, but you could become stressed. Does being famous really make people happy? "According to a study at the University of Rochester in New York, true happiness derives from having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth, and connections to your community." Do people really like the photographers, and crazed fans all day, every day? "Beyoncé has said that though she likes attention when she’s onstage, she’d be happier if she could “cut it off” when she isn’t performing and just enjoy her life." Is being famous really worth all the photographers. or crazed fans? If being famous is stressful, and has a fake happiness, is it worth it? Celebrities enjoy their time on set, but when they’re offset, there always crazed fans, and photographers.
Over my Christmas break, I spent time with my family. I got to spend time with my cousins because I went to my aunt’s house for a week to help them. I loved getting to see my cousins because they enjoy playing hide and seek along with many other games. I played hide and seek with my cousin until we had to go inside. Getting to spend time with them is amazing because I never get to see them. I had spent most of my Christmas day with my family.
Over Christmas break, at my grandma’s house, not many of my cousins were there even though they usually are able to make it. When I had arrived at my grandma’s house I had noticed that both of my aunts are having a baby. By the time I knew that my aunts were both going to have a baby, I realized that I would have two new baby cousins. I never actually get to see my aunts, uncles, grandmas, or cousins that often because they live in different states, so every time I get to see them I always play games, and make crafts with them whenever we can. I enjoy spending Christmas time with my family and friends.
I got to help my mother wrap presents. While we were wrapping the presents, I ended up having tape in my hair. Wrapping presents with my mother is fun because it gives us a chance to bond.. Even though my father never helps us wrap the presents, it's still a bonding experience. Every year I get to wrap presents with my sister and mother. I love getting to wrap presents with my mother every year because it’s like a tradition we have, so to sum it all up I had spent wonderful times with my family, and great memories with my family that I will cherish and remember forever. I had loved my Winter Break.
Currently I get A’s and B’s which accounts for my 2.79 GPA for the first nine weeks in eighth grade. I enjoy helping my mom cook, and playing hide and seek with my little cousins. I enjoy playing outside, but I also like to use computers. My interests have lead me to my number one career choice. When I grow up, I want to be a preschool teacher.
In order to become a preschool teacher, I need to be able to cooperate with kids. You need to cooperate with them, and try to get them to agree with you. They like the outdoors, and to look at pretty objects. Even though little kids don’t understand if you tell them something, they still try to help. They get distracted by the easiest things. They like to find pretty things. If you found a pretty leaf, they would want one like it. They like to play games outside. They might like to play in the snow. Little kids are simple, but complex at the same time. You never know what they might want, or say. Understanding what the kids ask for is important because kids seem to get frustrated when you don’t understand them.
A preschool teacher is a complex job if you can’t understand the kids. According Ohio Means Jobs, "I do love it but it can be quite hard work sometimes. I always wanted to be a teacher and it's because I just loved my primary school. It was a traditional gray stone church school in a village. Inevitably, one of the downsides of working in such a small school can be the lack of resources. However, this is an issue that has affected every school Moore has worked in, she is quick to point out.” Teaching kids in preschool is hard work. There are ups and downs when teaching because the students don’t want to listen or cooperate. Kids just want to play games, and not work, but still have to get them to learn. You can try to get kids to work in a fun way like in games, song, and many other things. You need to understand what the kids are saying in order to help them with what they need. If you work with little kids and don’t understand what they want, then there is going to be an issue. Kids always want something, or want to do something. They can be so simple because all they want to do is play.Teaching kids is harder than it looks because they are hard to understand.
Being a preschool teacher is a career that I would like to have. According to Ohio Means Jobs website, “Ohio will be looking for over three hundred thirty yearly projected openings.” Ohio is looking for three hundred thirty yearly workers. There are a lot of kids in preschool, so there needs to be a lot of workers to take care of the kids. If there were little amounts of teachers and a lot of students, there wouldn’t be enough teachers to take care of all the students. Taking care of children is a hard job because they don’t want to listen, or cooperate with you. Taking care of children can be hard because they don’t want to listen. It can also be easy to take care of the kids because there get distracted by the easiest of things.
If someone would want to take care of little kids, being a preschool teacher would be a good idea. If the students don’t understand you, it can be complicated to be a preschool teacher. You need to get along, and cooperate with little kids in order to become a preschool teacher. When you get older, get a job you love because you will be doing something you love and getting paid at the same time. I believe that being a preschool teacher will lead me to a happy life.
Before career day, I wanted to be a lawyer. I wanted to be a lawyer because I like explaining, or arguing why I’m right. I learned that it is important not to spend all of your money in a few minutes, or a few hours, and to buy all the important items first. You have to buy food, clothes, insurance, a car, a house, child care, utilities, and medical care. It's important to spend your money wisely.
At the reality store, I learned that it was important to value your money. You need to be careful not to get tickets, so you don't have to pay for them. You need to be able to take care of your family. I wouldn't want to have two different jobs. I would want to only have one job because it would be a long, and tiring day. I learned that being an adult is a lot of responsibility. You have to be able to pay for your kids, and everything they need. You have to be able to pay for groceries, your car, your house, medical care, and etc. You need to have everything that you would need until you would get paid from your job, or jobs.
In the afternoon, I had three different classes. My different classes were Social Media/Sports, Art and Communication, and Forensics Science. I learned that if at first you don’t succeed it’s not worth giving up because you can become better at it. You can get better at something if you try more than once, and don’t give up. A few more things that I learned were valuing money, spending it wisely, trying to make smarter choices with money, and I had seen a glimpse of what my future may look like. I learned there are multiple different kinds of art, and ways to communicate.
