First, my goal is to maintain all of the lessons that I have learned in Algebra this year. Every time that summer comes along I always forget about 25% of all of the things that I've learned in my classes. I hope that this situation does not happen for Algebra. It is such an important class for me that I can't afford to forget some of the lessons learned. From functions all the way to quadratic functions, I don't want to lose all of the things that I learned. Hopefully, next year I can advance to geometry and I know that if I forget the math foundations that Algebra has to offer, I'll probably have a hard time trying to master the skills in a higher math class. So, to achieve this goal, I need to reference the old math books and review once in awhile.
Second, I hope to continue media in some way. I didn't sign up for media as a freshman, but media is a good hobby to do on the side. Taking pictures and video is like an art form that I can do on the side of the main responsibilities that I have. It would be a complete waste if I don't continue media in some way. Just like algebra, forgetting everything I learned in media is like forgetting how to sleep, you would have lost a useful skill if you forgot how to do it. All of the experiences, memories, and lessons learned would be thrown in the trash and flushed down the toilet if I don't do something. To achieve this goal, I'm going to take pictures following the composition techniques, make videos just for the fun of it, and practice all of the skills learned in media. The only obstacle to this is that I don't have an editing software to use to make videos.
Finally, my main goal for this summer is to relax and enjoy this break from the school year that we had. I want to do things this summer. I really want to enjoy this summer break. I want to learn how to cook, draw some pictures, and even ride a bike around Kauai. My main goal for this summer is to avoid being lazy and just sitting around the house all day. Do you guys remember that blog about how I get my information? Well, Popular Mechanics offers DIY project to do for kids. It's always on the very last page of the issue. While going back through some past issues that I have, I stumbled on a water ballon launcher project. I don't know which issue it was on so I'll have to go back. If I don't find it, I want to attempt to at least try one of the projects that they have to offer. There are a ton of things that I can find to do during the summer. These are just a few of the things that I want to do that will help me avoid wasting my summer on the couch.
In conclusion, summer is quickly going to come by and that will be my break to transition from middle school to high school. Before entering Kauai High, why not learn some new skills? My goals are mainly to remember the lessons I've learned this year, create new hobbies that will last for years, and avoid being lazy. Just like always, I hope that every summer will be better and better than the previous. I want to do so much and I know that I have a whole lot of time to get these goals done.
