Before career day, I was exited and thought it would be fun. I wanted to be a sports medicine physician, but I found out I was an architect that made 64,000 in salary. Career Day was fun, but also a little hard because it showed you how life worked when you grow up.
I learned a lot from the reality store. I learned to spend my money wisely instead of on things I don't need. I also learned to get good grades in school so I could get a better paying job.
The afternoon speakers helped me to decide what career I wanted to do, and how I would need to do it. I learned about interview skills, so when I go to a job interview I would know what to do. I listened to Taylor Wilhelm speak about his job at Iowa State. I also listened to a math teacher from Tiffin University. Career Day taught me how to spend my money, and what job I might want to do when I grow up.
Donald Trump will make America better than it is by getting affordable health care, and protecting our rights to own guns. Hillary Clinton wants to eliminate guns while Donald Trump wants to keep them for protection. America should vote for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump will make America better by improving health care. According to,” http://www.washingtontimes.com/ Donald Trump says “Obamacare. We’re going to repel it, we’re going to replace it, get something great.” “Every American deserves access to high quality, affordable health care, not just insurance.” Obama care is too expensive and includes new taxes. Donald Trump should be president because he is going to improve health care so it is more affordable. Donald Trump thinks every American deserves high quality, affordable health care.
Hillary Clinton’s idea about gun control will leave Americans without protection. According to an article in newsela she says“I believe weapons of war have no place on our streets.” The article also stated that in her 2008 nomination fight she actively courted hunters and gun owners.” Taking weapons out of the hands of innocent Americans does not solve the problems of people getting shot. We all want to feel safe and secure in our homes, but if we don’t have protection we don’t feel safe.
Donald Trump is a great manager of business. Donald Trump could pay off some of the debt we owe to China. According to an article found in newsela it says “In September 2016, Forbes said Trump is now worth $3.7 billion.” Since Donald Trump is a great manager of money, he could put us in a better financial position by paying off some of the money we owe. Because Donald Trump is able to manage money, he could pay for something that needs to be done such as paying for some of the health care.
Donald Trump would be a better president because of his improvements of health care and making it more affordable, ideas of gun control and how to keep people safer with protection, and his ability to manage money by paying off some debt we owe to China.

Should pop have tax on it? I would choose to put tax on sugary drinks compared to not putting on taxes. Children are recommended to consume less than six teaspoons of sugar per day. A 12 ounce can of Coca Cola has about 10 teaspoons of sugar and 140 calories. If we put tax on sugary drinks people would not buy as much and wouldn't have health problems.
Screen Flow is a great app that you can use to record to teach or show something. Screen flow is very easy to use. In screen flow you can zoom in and zoom out, use the playhead to move to different spots, and split clips. You can also put in transitions and change them, scaling, text boxes, annotations, callouts, and you can export you video.

I used scaling to make the screen bigger or smaller. I put in a text box to tell what is going on, and I used the split clip button to split clips. Some important parts of the video is how to split clips, add annotations and callouts, add text boxes and how to export your video.

My dad, Brett Seidel, is my hero because he is very selfless and cares about others a lot more than himself. He is the head coach of high school basketball, and he teaches 3rd grade math. He went Ashland to play basketball, but graduated at Heidelberg.
