My goal is to donate 100 books to schools in Detroit. I really am passionate about this and would love to see this work out.

I have done nothing for my project this week. I have been super busy all week with the practice ACT, extra curriculars and dance competitions. I would work on it this weekend but I will be in Walled Lake performing. I'm really disappointed in myself because of the progress of this project. I really had high hopes in the beginning because I thought it would be so successful but it's not. Hopefully this will turn around and I will reach my goals.

20 time has been a completely out of the ordinary project. There is no rubric or guidelines, you make the rules. What I like about this project is that we get time every Friday to work on our projects. I also like how I got to pick my project. I decided what I wanted to do and my teacher didn't have any influence on me whatsoever. What I don't necessarily not like anything about this project, I just don't like how I can't spend as much time as I wish I could on it. With 6 other classes, sports and attempting to have some type of a social life, it gets pretty hectic to try and find time to work on it.
What I want to change about my project is the effort I put into it. I really want to accomplish a lot more than I have and to feel proud of myself. I feel like I have been slacking off all year and I really need to set things straight and meet my goals.

I did not do anything for my blog this week. We had mid winter break and all I did was watch Netflix and I occasionally left my house for food and to hang out with my friends. This week I am trying to work on my project a lot more and get some work done. My goals are to collect more books and games and to find schools to donate them too.

I haven't done much for my project at all this week. I've had many distractions that turn me away from my project. My parents got me a 2014 Jeep Patriot so there has been none stop McDonalds/Taco Bell/7 11 runs with friends. I've been so caught up in all of this new freedom that I have completely forgotten about what's really important.
My goal for mid winter break is to actually get some work done. I have my own transportation now so it will be a lot easier to contact places that I want to work with. Hopefully this project will get back on tract and I will finish what I started.

My 16th blog post. Ironically, my 16th birthday is tomorrow. It's the typical cliche chick flick event. Taking your road test, getting your license and a car, and the big party. If only I was Molly Ringwald and Justin Henry was waiting for me by a Red Porsche 911 Twin Turbo. I probably won't work on my project at all this weekend because of my birthday and dance practice.
I've thought about what I'm going to talk about for my presentation. I had this great idea in the beginning of 20 time and I thought that it would be super easy, but turns out, it's the hardest project I've ever had to do in my entire life. It's not your typical "read a book then write an essay " English project. You have to be fully committed and passionate about whatever you're doing, and stay committed the whole time. In my case, I failed to do so. With distractions and family/social complications I haven't been able to complete my project. Hopefully my project will turn around soon.

Exams. Every high school students worst nightmare. Unfortunately I have not been able to work on my project at all. I have been studying non stop for the past week and a half. I've been stressed out and I am mentally and physically drained from all of this work. Hopefully this week I will be able to get back on track and finish what I started in the beginning of the year.
Distractions have also had a huge impact on my project. My family got Netflix so I think everyone knows how that works out... No joke I've watched 3 seasons of gossip girl in a month. My best friend also got her license, which means non stop drives to TCBY, Taco Bell, and 7-11. I need to focus and realize that I need to work on this project.

My thirteenth blog post. An unlucky number and for me a very unlucky blog post. Over break, I was informed that I had to get my appendix taken out. Nervous, scared, and confused, my 20 time project was at the bottom of my list of the things I needed to worry about. After almost a week and half of healing I'm ready to get back on track and finish what I started. Hopefully 2014 will bring me and my classmates good luck for their projects.
