Election Results!!

The final Presidential results came in late Tuesday night and it could not  have turned out better. Our new president is going to be none other than Donald J. Trump!

There are both peaceful and non peaceful protests by people that feel sorry for themselves. Others are saying they are going to move to Canada because Trump became president, but I mean seriously you are not going to actually move to Canada that is just a way to let people know that you feel sorry for yourself. I know that I will probably get a ton of comments about how Donald Trump will not be a good president, but save your time because I don’t care enough to read them.

No matter how this election went half of the country would not have been very happy, but you just got to face the facts the president does not have very much power at all, for that is the way the United States government works and I am thankful it works that way. I like Trump even though I know he will not not build a wall it is still a good idea though.  That is what it comes down to at the end of the day. Ideas and the ability to give a good powerful speech because there is that small chance where it passes the US House of Representatives, both Chambers, then the President.

Within a year everyone gets mad because the president they voted for failed to accomplish the tasks they put upon themselves when they were running. It happens every time, but you can’t blame them they probably put a lot of hard work into trying to make it happen. So don’t think it is the end of the United States because the candidate you voted for didn’t win and the candidate you despised is now the president.

You made me take the emoji out of the tittle so I put it here?

Basketball!!

Football just ended, so that means that basketball is starting. Today was our first day of basketball, for the whole day we did dribbling drills with a little free throw practice at the end. Our practice was a little shortened today due to a wrestling demonstrate from Westlake High School. Two of their best wrestlers came to advertise a wrestling clinic Westlake is hosting.

Basketball is just now starting, but it is not my favorite sport. My favorite sport is baseball. I am also playing baseball right now and fall baseball season is almost over and spring baseball starts in the spring, so I am looking forward to that.

I will post more when I play my first game. Subscribe for weekly posts!!??

Field trip #2

I will be going on another field trip for my Above and Beyond class. If you are not familiar with Above and Beyond it is an elective class where you learn about philosophy, law, and engineering. This is the second Field trip we have went on if you want to see the first one click here

We are going to go to a courthouse to see a real trial! While we are there we will speak to the judges and lawyers about law and they will ask us questions to test our understanding of law. After that we will go to the Ethiopian grill to try Greek food because we just finished studying   philosophy, and we learned about Ancient Greece.

I will tell you more about it in the post after I go.

 

Field Trip

Last Friday my elective class “Above and Behond” and some other elective classes went to silicon labs for a field trip.

We sall them Makeing  all types of chips and saw some rooms with a lot of cool technology such as electron microscopes, detection systems, and much, much more. We sall some rooms worth more than 4 million Dollars!

Then we got to fidget with some toy circuits that made a light turn on, Activated a buzzer, or turned a propeller. Silicone labes provided us with a pizza lunch and we were back on the bus to school we were back by seventh period so we got to miss the whole school day.
