Oh wow the year is almost over...

Today was Ted Talks. I think I did... okay? I don't really know. Soon on my teachers blog they'll be posting the videos from Ted Talks. YOU can tell me how I did if you want. I'm upset that the year is almost over. I'll miss Mr. Eckert and Mrs. Hellwig, along with all my classmates. I'm also glad though, because I'll get to relax during summer vacation. Next year might be a let down compared to this year. I'll get to meet new people and teachers, but I'll still miss Harmony and the Harmonites! 20% will stick with me till I die. I think that every school should do this. My 20% time project taught me a lot of things. Things that I'll never forget, EVER. I've had amazing teachers every single year at school (except for second grade, long story), but by far this has been in the top three of school years. I'll miss you Harmony, 20% time, fellow Harmonites, Mr. Eckert, Mrs. Hellwig, and Monte. Thank you for an amazing year, and see you again some time?

Ted Talk Prep!

I've started preparing by writing what I'm going to say. I'm excited! I'm going to talk about how I came up with my idea, and some stuff about how sleep works. It's really interesting! There're many parts that go into making sleep happen. No one is completely sure how sleep works and how dreams work. I'll say it again, I'M SO EXCITED!

I got the chance to interview students who have a sleep abnormality. It's really interesting to hear what they experience, compared to what I experience. There was a lot of interesting insight. I can't wait to share my video at Ted Talks! Ted Talks are soon approaching and I'm excited! More to come!

Interesting Breakthrough!

A while ago I did something while sleeping. I looked it up and I couldn't find anything. It was like sleep paralysis but different. I still don't know what it was. I plan to talk about it at Ted Talks. I honestly believe I'm possessed. More to come!

Started Research

I started researching my topic. Sleep walking, sleep talking, restless leg syndrome, and sleep paralysis. I chose this because I do these things. I want to know more about what I do when I sleep. I plan to research why these happen. I think it'll be interesting! I can't wait to do more!

Trouble in Paradise and New Project

Two days ago I started to doubt my project. Is this really what I want to do? Am I happy with this? I decided to quit my project with Ethan and pursue something else. I struggled for a while before finally coming up with something I really liked. Time is running out. I seems like just yesterday it was the beginning of the year. I'm really going to miss this team and my teachers. By far this has been my favorite school year. I told Mr. Eckert and Mrs. Hellwig that I wanted to switch my project. When I was asked what I wanted to do I said sleep walking. At first they didn't understand why I wanted to do this. As I explained that I sleep walk, sleep talk, and go into sleep paralysis they became fully supportive. All I have to do now is... a lot.

Good News and Bad News...

The good news is Ethan and I have made our recipe and have gotten some ingredients! The bad news is that it looks like we won't get to tour a chocolate place. It's okay though because we were able to figure it put by ourselves. All in all I'm pretty excited about the end result!
