Special Topic – Sneakers

Friday, September 27th, 2013

The topic I am choosing is sneakers. I am choosing this topic because I love to look at and buy the new sneakers that come out every month. Every month new designs and models come out so people don’t have to wear the same sneakers on their feet everyday. It just excites me when I see a new pair of sneakers I like because I ant wait to go buy them. So writing about this topic will just show how much I really care for sneakers.

When I Get Older…

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

When I graduate from college I would like to be involved in an occupation that involves technology. I chose to pick this type of job because it was always in my interest to look at the new phones, computers, and inventions coming out. These jobs are mostly high paying and can also have good benefits included. It would be a dream if I actually get to work in a well known technology company one day.

Watching Movies In School

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

The other day in class my teacher brought up a point about watching movies in the classroom. He thought that it was a good idea, but said that other teachers think it is pointless. I think that it is a good idea because it gives you more point of views about the topic you are learning. For example, if you are reading a book in class, but you don’t understand it the teacher can put in the movie so the student can get a better understanding about the topic. Also it brings a little joy in a students learning experience. Overall, watching movies in the classroom actually benefits students.

 

GTA V

On the Forbes website I read an article about Grand Theft Auto 5 and how it made  1billion dollars in three days. In the article it explains the shares the owner has, the layout of the game, and how it was spectacular that i sold so well. There were many offers to buy the rights of the video game like EA, but the owner declined and he made a good decision. In my opinion, I think that it was amazing that a video game produced a profit of 1 billion dollars. I would ask the author how he feels about the 1 billion dollars.

Black Widow Spider Fan

This article is about a nature writer who got bit by a black widow, but had a pet one in a jar. One day before he went fishing he got bit by a black widow spider inside of his shoe. even though he knew he was bit he still went fishing, but eventually her started feeling pain in his stomach and his arm. He finally went to the hospital and coincidentally they had an experimental spider venom. In my opinion, I think that the man is crazy because he knew he got bit, bu he still didn’t go to the hospital. The question I have for the author is why didn’t he go to the hospital earlier.

20% Time

The topic I chose for 20% time was sneakers. I chose sneakers because thousands of sneakers come out every month all around the world. Different brands of shoes try to release sneakers every month that they think people will like. The two highest praised brands are Jordan and Nike. People love Jordan sneakers so much that they wait in line for hours or even days.Those people call themselves sneaker heads. In my opinion I think that the waiting is worth it because they are only released for that one time and won’t be available until years later or on eBay for triple the price.

Advertising

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

When I get out of college i would like to be in he advertising field. Advertising is communication for marketing and is used to persuade an audience. All my life I looked at billboards, commercials, and magazine ads and found them interesting. I like to be creative and think of new ideas so people and look at them and be amazed by the sight. Advertising is a occupation that I think that I would excel in.

 

My best vacation…

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Paradise-Island_Hotel-Atlantis_Bahamas  The best vacation I have ever been on was a week-long trip to the Bahamas. There was a sting ray the size of a minivan, the hotel had three swimming pools, and we rode banshees down a private beach. Also there was a teen club that kids could go to at night to enjoy their selves in. At one point when we were para-sailing the boat ran out of glass and we were stuck in the middle of the ocean for 20min. Overall my family and I enjoyed it because we made a lot of memories during that vacation.

Technology

In a video I watched on the Wall Street Journal website it talked about how you can trade your old Iphone for money or credit to buy the new Iphone 5s or 5c. There are multiple websites you can go on to trade in your phone like amazon, apple, gazelle, and networth. The highest price they will  give you is 210 for an Iphone 4s or 300 for an Iphone 5. In my opinion think that this is a good deal because you don’t have to spend any money  to get the newest Iphone. The source is very credible as well. The question I have is why would they give you so much money for an old phone?
