Podcast Reflection

For my podcast I chose to review an album called Blurryface by Twenty One Pilots.  This album came out in 2014, and is one of my favorite albums in all history.  The title name "Blurryface” it's supposed to represent everybody's insecurities, and that is what the album and most of the song lyrics are based off of.  I find this album very interesting because it relates to me, a person who has overcome a lot of their insecurities and moved on and this album is part of the reason why.  What I did was I research more about the artist and about the songs and I really listen to the songs and I try to remember how I felt when I first heard them, and that is how I narrated my podcast.  For me, this experience is really fun because I love music and bringing music into the classroom makes a lot of things more interesting.  In the end, I personally really like the outcome of my podcast and I think that this is a great project.

Semester 1 reflection

My semester one overall performance wasn't as great as I would like it to be.  The first quarter I did really well, I had mostly A's and I was planning on doing even better the second-quarter.  The second quarter was a lot more hectic than the first and that is probably why didn't you as well as I would like to.  Well I did get the GPA both first-quarter and second-quarter I was expecting some sort of improvement with my grades.  For semester one I have a lot of strengths and I also had a lot of weaknesses.  
One string that I really like to focus on was that I consistently did my work and study for test.  In middle school I always had a really tough time with my study habits because I would get distracted by other assignments or by anything really.  This year I've improved my study habits and I'm now able to study for test and I am more prepared now that ever happened before.  I think I did really well on all of my semester exams and I was really proud of my scores.  In my opinion I have one weakness that really makes a difference with my grades, and that is procrastination.  I need to have better time management plan and I'm to learn not procrastinate as much.

My plan for third-quarter is going to be to use my agenda and to I have a good time management plan and not to procrastinate as much.  I started my agenda in the second quarter and I could already see an improvement with my time management then I did in first-quarter. so if I continue to use my agenda and use my time wisely, I think I will be able to succeed in my third-quarter.  For third-quarter and fourth-quarter I plan depend more attention class and use my time wisely and hopefully I won't be able to achieve my goals and you even better than I did first semester.
