Instagram

  • Do you think people put too much, too little or just enough energy into the way they depict their lives through photos on social media? Explain.
I believe that some put a little too much energy into the photos they put on their social media 

  • Do you ever look forward to events because you know you will post photos afterward?
To be truthful I some times do look forward to going to events for that reason because I don't go to a lot if events so I want to remember them.

  • Is there anything wrong with that?
I don't believe so but I could be wrong. It's just my experiance that I want to remember the events.

Is more years a pro or a con?


  • How long would you want to live, if you could choose your life span?
If I could choose how long I live I would probably choose 80 to 90 years.

  • Do you agree with the author that “adding years to a life doesn’t necessarily make it any fuller?”
I do agree with the author that "adding years to life doesn't necessarily make it any fuller" for example you could have Alzheimer's or Parkinson's  and to add years to those is not the right thing to do.

Capote movie responce

2. Why does Truman form such a bond with Perry Smith? Do you think Truman falls in love with him? Why/why not? What are their similarities? What are their differences?

I believe that the reason why Truman forms such a bond with Perry Smith is because Perry Smith is a well spoken and intelligent man. In the movie Perry is shown to be a man that couldn't be blamed for what he did and that he is a delicate man. It seems to me that Truman does fall in love with Perry Smith even when he knows what Perry did. The reason I believe this is because of the way that Truman acts in the movie. like he is to heart broken to do anything when he hears that the men were sentenced to be executed. The similarities that they share are the way that they both are very intelligent and that in the movie they both grow up in some what abusive homes. The differences between them are that Truman got in to a better life when he was an adult and Perry didn't, instead he   had a harder life style and killed a family.

Pranks gone to bullying

The moment a prank turns into bullying is when the name calling goes from being a little joke to being racist, sexist and hurtful. Intention is a very important thing to be aware of because you think something is funny doesn't mean that it is it can be extremely hurtful and damaging. It is also important to keep in mind what the victim is feeling and how they might respond to the "prank". It is not fun to be the one the prank is targeted towards. I believe that the harassment in the N.F.L should not be tolerated.

Student safety gone too far?

I think that it was a good India at the time but it has gone too far at time has gone on. It does depend on what the schools are looking for like death threats or bullying. I think that monitoring students social media is an ok Idea but it can go too far fairly quickly

Do schools provide students with enough opportunities to be creative?


No not always but there are schools that require students to have one credit of art. But not all schools do that. The art classes here don't go as far as the language classes where the language classes can go up to four levels. I would love to see a ceramics three class at school instead of having to go to an adult class at a pottery place. I would also like to see more art equipment for students to use instead of having one wheel. We should have a bigger art program for the students if the school wants to have student be more creative.

What makes a good interview
