My Interests

      The interest I will be writing about today Is getting a division one football scholarship, this is something that is very important to me because I believe I can play football all the way to a pro level such as the NFL. Step one is getting into a division one college cause there's virtually no other way to play for a division one football team. I've never done much research though I really should also I would really like to. I'm going to need this information some day.
      So it turns out that in order to get a division one football scholarship you only have to maintain a C- average as far as grades go. Which is excellent news, not that I'm saying I'm going to slack in school but I am saying it's good to know that I don't have to be perfect to still have the future I want. Okay so I have also now learned that in FBS football (division 1A) there are 120 colleges each given 85 football scholarships, all full ride, because there are no scholarships not full ride in division one. If you do the math that is 10,200 division one football scholarships.

Social Issue

         The social issue I've chosen to write about is Abortion, not just in America but all over. I want to write about how unfair it is that women and girls are killing babies without chance. How they just brush it off like they didn't just kill their unborn baby. without even giving it a chance at life, and how multiple big organizations and corporations just support these decisions. Where I want to go with my writing is against abortion, and sharing reasons as to why, and also how It can be fixed.
        I've learned some new things on the topic such as The Daily Signal  lists the 38 major companies that support abortion so I'm going to list some of the major ones. Converse, Microsoft, Nike, Starbucks ex. So basically most of my favorite brands support abortion and that's a problem. I also think because we support those companies, such as buying a coffee from Starbucks, Starbucks is going to use some of that money to support abortion. I think that's whats really wrong in the situation.
       This has changed my point of view because now that I know how many large companies support abortion I can make it aware. Also I know know why abortion is still a common thing, because we let it be, heck we basically pay for it. Abortion has so many supporters that I think the non supporters such as myself need to make up for the uneven numbers. I will not support abortion and I will stand by that decision for the rest of my life.

The Houston Rockets Depth chart

        So I've been a Rockets fan for about three years (I'm aware that is when they started making the playoffs.) and i was watching a game the other day. and I realized that I don't know much about their history and what they were like in the past, so i plan to check out how they were in the past and just try to become a better rockets fan in general.
       Well turns out in the history of the rockets franchise they have won two NBA National Championships. Actually they won them back to back in 1994 and 1995. In 94' they won they finished the season  58-24 and beat the Utah Jazz in the finals 4-1. Now in 95' they finished 47-35 and swept the Orlando magic by winning all four games 4-0. They were founded as well in 1967.

Freedom of speech

      I strongly disagree that people shouldn't be able to say what they want. to be able to speak our mind is a right as well as a great privilege, it reminds us that our opinion matter as much as the next guy or girl and that we are equal. It  allows everyone to have a voice. And if the government takes that away from us we are belittled and under estimated.
      Why would the government take our freedom of speech away from us? Are they scared of getting exposed? Are they scared of the truth? They know we're right, and will do anything to make sure it's not known. Freedom of speech is the hope left, it's the light at the end of the tunnel that keeps people striving. If the government has it there way, if they get there way we have no hope, the light at the end of the tunnel is dimmed by a big forceful train.

Professional soccer

     I've decided to try to learn more about the sport soccer, specifically professional soccer, like Fiffa. The things  i would like to know are the rules, the penalties, and though i kind of a already understand the score system i would like to know a bit more. I really know little about this subject but it seems cool so I'm going to check it out, and see what It's all about, and hopefully going to learn quite a bit.
      So what Iv'e learned to this point is that both teams may have up to eleven players occupying the field at once, and in order to score the ball has to surpass the goalie and make it into the goal or net. The game itself is ninety minutes long broken into forty five minute long halves, however if the score is tied at the end of regulation there is a fifteen minute overtime period that will be played. Now when it comes to penalties if a player commits a serious offense they will be shown a red card, if a single player is shown two red cards with in the ninety minutes he will be ejected. If a player is shown a yellow card that means they committed a smaller offense. If a player is shown a red card and a yellow card within the game the other team gets a free shot at the goal with only the goalie there to stop it.

Abstract Noun

          Anger is something you feel when someone does something you don't like, or when something goes wrong or doesn't go your way. It's a feeling of rage and hatred that runs through your body for a matter of time. Like everything is against you, and the world is ending. How ever Anger is abstract, you can't touch anger, you can't see or pickup anger. It's a thing, but it's not physically there to see. The reason I choose anger is because I feel like there is a lot of anger in this grade, and a lot of deception or misunderstandings that cause anger.
         https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/p/pjorour617286.html actually says that anger could be abstract or concrete, just because you can feel anger coursing through your body, and yet no one else can pick up or feel it.

Reflection

       In the past two English periods, I've learned a lot about Milbank i didn't know, for instance there is granite from Milbank used to make the FDR memorial. Did you know that Valley Queen Cheese gets sent all over the USA, I didn't. All this information hits you like a curve ball, you didn't really know it curved until you had already swung. For me the swing was my instant assumption of this town, I instantly assumed this town was small, lifeless, not much to do. Now the curve ball is the guests we had yesterday and the day before, they made me realize that this town is not that bad, it's the people that make it not the buildings and organizations.
     How ever my hunger for knowledge of this town has not yet been filled, I still crave to know who drove to really make this a town, what originally attracted people. How did they equip the manpower to make this possible. Why, what made someone realize "I' going to make a town today."
