In class we have been working on graphic novels. Everybody made their own graphic novel. I made a graphic novel called “All by Myself” about a girl and she takes care of her siblings because her parents don’t take care of her siblings or her. Writing graphic novels has taught me a new way of writing. I thought that writing a graphic would be easier then writing a normal story, but actually it’s not I think its a little harder because you have to draw a picture that matches the scene and it has to be detailed so that’s why I think graphic novels are a little harder. Making my graphic novel was fun and it taught me a new way of writing. Graphic novels were really fun to make and writing graphic novels has taught me a lot.

For Spanish we had a field trip we went to a restaurant. We could only get food that everybody can share on a big plate and then put some on your own plate. I only ate the pollo saltado which is chicken with french fries. The food at the restaurant was really good. It was a really fun trip.
This is the pollo saltado
We had to talk to the waiters in Spanish and try to talk to the people at are table in Spanish. I tried a drink that I did not like that is called chicha morada.
This is a picture of chicha morada that I tried.
As it says in my other post I am researching on my Capstone project on Apple Inc. I needed to have a site visit at an Apple store or a place related to Apple and an interview with someone who works there. It was easy to get a site visit and an interview.
This weekend I had my site visit at the Apple Store in Greenwich. When I went I observed on what was happening at the store at the store at that time. Also I observed what all the products and services they offer and I took pictures. People were sitting at tables with phones. The people working there helped the crowd and showed them iPhones and iPads. I took pictures as notes including pictures of computers, beats, speakers, iPhones and a tooth brush.
On Monday I had my interview with my uncle, Tracey who works for Apple and lives in Florida. My interview was over FaceTime. We talked for around 30 minutes I asked all different questions about Apple Inc. I ask him questions that are related to my main question “how did Apple’s products improve people’s everyday life from when they did not have Apple to now?” and then other questions about Apple. It was very exciting to have my interview and site visit I learned new things about Apple and their products that helps me understand more about Apple.
This is my passion project! I researched on dogs because dogs are my favorite animals.
