Good leaders are all around me. You have to look at the leaders you have so you know what they stand for, because bad leaders are around too. In the book Julius Caesar by Shakespeare, bad leaders like cassius depended on good public reps like brutus. Brutus could not think for himself so he killed his best friend. Goes to show you thatthe blind lead the blind. In today's world if you are not careful you can be mislead and fooled by the blind. Leadership is important and you should know your leaders. My leader, mom is not always the greatest and sometimes she does make mistakes, but she stands amd belives in the best. My mom would be Julius Caesar she came, She saw, she conquered!

The 7 habits has helped me. The RBA (relationship bank account) is my favorite! In the book, it says to tally up all the things that you do to people both good and bad. So you get to look at all the good qualities you have and the bad qualities you need to change. i learned that I am an ok friend at times, but i want to be a great friend. A friend that all people can come to for anything. My listening skills need to be worked on, and hopefully in time they will improve. Also, I need to work on being patient and waiting for things to happen instead of rushing results. It does not take a augurer to tell that the girl i once was is changing for the better. Broadly speaking, there will be a new me before the people of Batesville High.

My characters name is Kaybrien Gail. She is a teenager from the future. kaybrien was born a normal earth girl, but on her tenth birthday she recieved special super powers. her mother Bridgette does not support Kaybrien and wishes that kaybrien did not have powers. Kaybrien's pawpaw (grandpa) is happy that his granddaughter has powers. he trains her and loves her unconditionally. Kaybrien goes to school and hangs with her friends. life is normal for kaybrien until nightfall. at night kaybrien is a super hero. she saves all sorts of people from all sorts of distress. her powers are not yet fully developed yet. with the love and support from kaybrien's pawpaw and friends there is no end to what she can do.
Science fiction was never a genre I read. science is the study of why things happen around you and fiction means fake. So i guess science fiction makes fake science. i never read books like that. In school we started reading the book the Invisible Man, it is very interesting . that is the first book from the genre i have ever read and i want to read more from the genre. science fiction is a genre that made me think about something other than the words on the page. like what would i do if i waws invisible or if i was all alone. sci-fi is alright with me.

I think the next president is going to be Barack Obama. Barack Obama is going to be the united states next president, because he stands for hope and change. Obama says that the united states needs change in: economy, energy, foriegn policy, health care, immigration, iraq, and trade. These are problems that America does need help with. Barack comes with hope for a new America, a new and brighter future, and a unity between government and the people. I truely believe Obama can make a difference.
