I was a quiet kid back in middle school. I was basically the same person I am today. I never interrupted class, but I never did homework at home. That was school work, it was easy. I had friends just barely talked during class.
One of my academic strengths was math at the time because I was really good at it. I lost that strength because of e2020 and creativity. Art with a paper and art supplies was a strength, it was fun. Lost that to photography. Science is my main weakness, I just plain hated it, it was not fun. I still passed the classes though. P.E. was a major strength. Everything else is neutral. In 9th grade I didn't want to think of a career to do. I was basically forced to follow a path to a future I didn't want.
The NBA was my #1 choice, there was no option 2 or 3. The NBA was the main goal because it was/is my life. I was surprised there was no option 2 or 3. I changed from the NBA to wanting to sell my photography on posters, stickers, etc. I had no idea who I wanted to be. My success was making a mini Captain America shield. My communication skills were slow and I didn't want to talk. School being school made me learn. I never raised my hand. Talking was overrated. I was realizing what I wanted to do and when. If we had a writing assignment or an art assignment, I would forge the project into my own and go at my own pace. E2020 killed many dreams and skills, so a class like Art or English that wasn't on e2020, I payed attention. Also I wanted to build those skills. These traits were important because it was an actual person grading my work and telling me how to improve. I was the least experienced person for technology. I thought the internet was only for YouTube and games.
I learned how to use Microsoft Word and I also learned SolidWorks. The skill for technology that I did the best in would be interpreting because of the creativity I used. That creativity was the creation of the mini Captain America shield on SolidWorks. I need to organize better because my work was all over the place. I didn't do a lot for getting myself or the schools' name out into the world.
I stayed in a small group of friends. I mean, I didn't make the school worse. I had no problem being alone. I didn't want to work in groups because it's 9th grade and you don't really know anybody. I demonstrated a positive work ethic by doing my work. But I also had troubles staying on task because it was not fun. I respected everyone. My creativity was not anywhere close to what it is today.
I knew how to do art really well. A good decision was not caring as much about e2020, less stress. The decision to play Strike Force Heroes 2 instead of 9th grade math could have used more thought. A calculated risk was doing that Math class last second. Good time. I demonstrated my creativity in 9th grade in Art class. I was looking to continue SolidWorks and experience Photography in 10th grade.
