When we first got this project I was excited to grow plants and take care of them. Then once I figured out we would also be doing two generations of plants, mixing between the types that got me even more pumped for this. Our first generation of plants did good. I think they took longer to grow then our second generation of plants. Our first generation of plants was ST & NP. I predicted that the next generation would be a mix of purple stem with green leaves or vice versa and that’s how they were. I would say that our plants being moved really hindered our plants’ ability to thrive. People kept moving our plants and this, at one point, lead to them dying and made us have to start over. Genetics will provide and organism with the genes they have which will then provide an organism with their phenotype. However, an organism's environment will determine whether it lives or does not. If there was no light for our plants, they would die. This is evident on when our plants were moved by others. Since other people moved our plants from under the light/from the water our plants died. This shows that the environment does matter for the growth of an organism. I think the thing that stood out to me the most during this project was the genetics portion. I think actually playing with the DNA and genetics of the plants was fun and interesting. We got to see how genetics work. That was the most interesting part of this project.

For our project we decided to focus on overpopulation and the causes it has on the world. Something that surprised me was how overpopulation is a big topic full of many little topics. There's over consumption, pollution, global warming, and many more. Because there are so many of us that means there more mouths to feed and water that is needed, which leads to the over consumption. Many people are not growing up to be farmers though, so the amount of resources we have are not equal to or greater than the number of people that need it. More people means more energy that needs to be used for things like heat and electricity which means more pollution. This pollution leads to the rapid increase of global warming. I wonder what will we do to fight against overpopulation. I think more education on parenthood and more programs to educate young people on sex is needed. We barely had a health class in this school and I doubt any other public schools in our area have a good health class. I think we need to put more time, energy, and money, into educating people about sex and sex control.
This is about how I would never change myself so I can be ‘popular’ or ‘cool.’ I’ve seen people change themselves so they can fit into another group of people and I don’t see how they change so quickly. I would never want to do that. I would rather find someone who likes me for the way I am now. I shouldn’t have to change myself so I can be friends with people.
I think I am still me when I am online, I'm seen as a boy who likes The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, Spongebob, Doctor Who, and many others. A Fanboy.
I don’t know how people perceive me, if I was to guess I would say maybe a geek? I don’t know.
Before posting online I think about who’s going to see it currently. For example, my friends and family. I don’t think about who might see it in the future.
The pros for sharing online is it’s easy for people around the world to get information faster and you can have fun with friends and family members. The cons for sharing online is everyone can see what you are doing, little gets deleted and your things can get hacked.
Lack of Control, Permanence, and Immediacy have an impact on our online lives in many ways. One of the ways is that anything you post will stay on the internet forever. So anyone can see what you did and they can judge you by the things you have posted. People can look at things you posted and your profile and think they know you. They will think about you based on your internet reputation even though that’s only half of who you really are most of the time.
