Many people know that in high school you FINALY get to chose your subjects. And for most this is a great thing. Now don't get me wrong I think this is a great thing because it helps me pursue my passion and it gives me more choice and freedom in my learning. But for me currently this is really tough between two of them. I want to do 2 things in high school: Skills 8 which includes cooking, metal shop and wood shop. The other one is band and P.E. The skills eight is a fun program and who doesn't want to eat what they make. Yu can make pretty great stuff. Wood shop and metal shop you can craft things that are lots of fun. My friend does skills 8 and he made a riot shield along with a wooden sword that are currently hung on his wall in his room. And band is something I am good at and I enjoy along with P.E were I get to do fun physical activity. This is one of the obstacles that I have a lot of trouble with. If you can help me decide in the comments that would be appreciated.
Owen and Haatchi i a story about a boy (Owen) and how he has Schwartz- Jampel Syndrome. This causes a persons muscles to contract greatly sometimes making them look like bodybuilders. This is very painful. He was diagnosed with this syndrome when he was 2 years old. I think my teacher showed us this video because Owen persevered over challenges such as being alone and the pain that he has. Also to show us what friendship really means. Haatchi is the dog he got when he was 6 years old. Haatchi is an Anatolian Shepherd. Haatchi was found chained to a railroad missing a leg and half of the tail. A worker at the said railroad found haatchi and got help. Haatchi was a great and very important suprise to 6 year old owen and they have a very strong relationship. It was like they understood what happened to the other the moment they met. They have a very strong relationship to this day.
This relates to me because I have a friend with a german shepherd and they are great friends. Always playing with each other. When my friend leaves the house the german shepherd starts whining and sounds quite miserable. I think this story is very inspiring and made happy and sad at the same time
This video is about how much time in our life we REALLY have. It shows that we need to use time wisely. I think we watched this video so we learn to find our passion and to do our passion. Our life according to this video is quite sad. For example it ays we spend more time commuting than loving and caring for those who are close to our heart. I think this relates to me because I waste my time a lot and I don;t really know what my passion is yet. Right now I enjoy Clarinet but it is not my passion. At least not yet. I also get "find your passion" a lot. My thought on this are that this is very deep and I think everybody should watch it and might get a better view on life.
I am at 4380 / 28,835 days out of my life. When I watched this video my first emotions were: shock, understanding, and sadness. I love this video.

This video is about a girl named Kayla who has MS which is a disease where the imune system attacks the nerves which causes loss of feeling in certain areas. Kayla had MS in her legs. The problem is that she is a runner. She runs a lot. So the story is about her and her life and how she persevered through her life. I think my teacher showed my class this video because perseverance is our class theme this year and to teach us the many lessons in the video. This video made me remember another video we watched about this lady called Jennifer Bricker who has no legs and was a gymnast. The reason it reminded me of that video is because they both do a sport and both had a problem with their legs. I think this video relates to me because when I did this thing called the beep test in gym I could not feel my legs while running. This also happened once in cross country. I felt a few emotions while watching this video. They were mainly curiosity and concern at the beginning and Inspired,amazed, and happy. These were mainly the things I felt during the video
