scrapbook progress

So far I have all the pictures for my slideshow and they are in the correct order from freshman year through senior year. I have the music as well but I just decided that I want to add some of the pictures from prom which might mess up the audio timing. I also need to finish doing the transitions from one picture to another. Other than that I'm good. Two weeks will be plenty of time for me to finish.

My Plan

My goal is to create a slideshow with pictures from high school. It's going to act as a senior scrapbook. I need my laptop in order to do this, as well as pictures and music. So far I have picked out a few of the songs I'm using but I still need one or two more. I have picked out all the pictures I'm going to use and I have put them in order using windows live movie maker. Now I just need to clean it up a little and add some affects. I plan on posting the slideshow to my blog as a video and anyone who wants to see it can look. Also I might put it on facebook because I really like how it's turning out.

Update: AP preparation

So I went back and found some of the old essays I had written throughout this year and reviewed them. It was helpful because after looking at a lot of the essay prompts I know it's important to have more literature to choose from. I've also been looking at the literature analysis on my blog and other blogs just reviewing the details of the books.

Macbeth Introduction Paragraph

Shakespeare's Macbeth is driven by the characters and the presence of evil they contain within them. There is no doubt Macbeth was an evil man. However, Shakespeare made him more relatable to the audience by giving him a conscience. Throughout the play we can see Macbeth's indecisiveness, guilt, and ultimately his ambition. Macbeth was an honorable man, but throughout the play we see the effect evil has on him and how that caused his downfall.

AP Study

I was actually given an ap study book to borrow and it's pretty helpful. I showed a few people in class today. It seemed like the test basically. It gave a passage to read then had multiple choice questions to answer and the answers were in the back.
