Weekly Blog #lost count

Ahh, the week has begun and teachers and students rushing to catch up for lost time. This week has been stressful for IT9/10. Although was hard, we were able to continue Excel. It was hard remembering how to do the formulas and such. And we’re having a test on it tomorrow. So I’m going to try my best and pass it 😀


Weekly Blog #I lost count LOL

Ok this past week has been hectic. The teacher strike has caused us to go to school for 2 days. So now teachers’ schedule has been messed up. We even might have to be sped up the stuff we learn just to complete the course! In IT/10 we are learning how to use the spreadsheet on excel. This has been challenging for me mostly because computers isn’t exactly my forte 😛 But I am looking forward to spring break, a break from all my subjects.

Weekly Blog#5 I think..

We finally got a new sitting plan 😀 i sit beside Shaan Paul and Jordan (:  Mr Fernandez assigned us a 50 worth HW called Computer Buying. I learned that buying things isn’t easy. Even if you are rich, you still have to think about the type you want for your own personal computer. We also watched a movie of how Bill Gates and Steve Jobs came to be the legendary among computer legends. That sums about everything that had happened in IT9/10. Oh and teacher’s are on strike.. nuff said
