College! Are you ready because they are.

Some people just think about going to college but there are some people who were getting ready since 9th grade. In this class the student’s had to get interview as they were going to college. I interviewed a girl named Sujeidi Heriquez.
Q “What did you learn from this class”
A “I learn how to go into a interview and how to be comfortable in myself and my answers”
Q “What was a challenge for you”
A “My challenge was finishing my college application’s and staying focus for hours doing college stuff”
Q “How is this going to help you in the future
A “This is going to help me by getting me ready for college and help me to be ahead if the game”
It seems that to this student college is her only choice for her future and she’s ready for anything that comes her way.

I Ate The Alligator

I ate the alligator

That’s right, I ate the alligator prepared in Mr. Cyrus’s Intensive, and you know what? It was delicious! That’s right, it was absolutely delicious.

Expertly battered with a delicate blend of flour and spice, and then deep fried in the finest oils, this was an unforgettable experience.

The gator meat it self was a nice balance of tender and tasty.

My compliments to the chef!

Banh Mi!

We tried some pork belly sandwiches!

Banh Mi! A person would think that a sandwich would just include Ham and Cheese but Banh Mi takes it to a whole new side of the thing we call a sandwich. This wasn’t just Ham and Cheese oh no it had pork  belly in it with all natural fresh veggie’s and after I didn’t feel like I needed some sleep this isn’t just a lunch mean it is my dinner my breastfed and my snack.
