Personal Project Reflection

Day 1

Today is the first day of my project. I have learned 23 new digits of pi in 2 hours today. In a total of 27 digits.

My goal is to get memorize 50 digits of pi in a week.

I am really worried because pi has an infinite amount of digits and probably when I get to 30 digits I am afraid I am going to forget everything I have memorized.

I chose this project because I want to challenge my brain. I want to make my brain more used to memorizing which will be useful in life. I am looking forward to memorizing pi and train my brain and my memorization.

Day 2

Today is the second day of my project. It was quite bad because I nearly forgot 12 digits of the pi. I have learned 14 more digits of pi which is 41 digits of pi overall. I was quite focused in my work but kind of frustrated in the memorizing part. The most fun part is also forgetting the digits, it is fun because we get to work harder and working hard is actually fun.

I have demonstrated my thinking skills. I demonstrated my thinking skills by memorizing pi by doing different methods. Like the part method example:  3. 1415 926 535. Or in the repeat method Example: 3.1415…,3.1415…,3.1415… these show I have different thinking methods.

I also demonstrated being a risk-taker by trying to do something no else can think I can do. I also showed being a risk-taker by also trying to do something that is hard. Try to memorize pi.

Day 3

Today is the third day of my project. It was bad like yesterday. It is was bad because I also forgot more digits of pi and it went on for a long time so I thought I forgot pi and I should have given up. But then I finally came back to the top. I have learned 6 more digits of pi which in total 47 digits.

The most challenging thing today is memorizing new numbers while trying to keep the other numbers. In other words, I keep memorizing new digits but always keep forgetting the old digits and I always skip some numbers on the way.

The most enjoyable thing is also forgetting numbers It may be bad to keep forgetting digits but it is also good because it will make you more determined and more focused.

Another enjoyable thing is actually testing. Testing is fun because someone tests you and it is fun when they correct and it is fun when testing me. It is also fun because I can see their faces when they are surprised to hear all the numbers in my head.

By the end of tomorrow which is the end of Thursday. I will have already have memorized 53 digits of pi. I chose this because today I only memorized 6 more digits. So I think tomorrow I will also memorize 6 numbers again. So this is my goal for tomorrow.

Day 6

Today is the 6th day of my project. Now I have memorized 61 digits of pi. I have memorized 14 more digits in pi in 2 days. That means around 7 digits each day. I will try to memorize 65 digits of pi because it is harder for me to memorize numbers now because lots of numbers fill my head.

People always ask me if memorizing pi is fun or if I ever get bored. The answer is that sometimes I might feel bored but if I revise and forget numbers then it gets challenging and more fun because you can actually have faults.

Today is the 7th day of my project. I have unfortunately did not memorize any more digits. I still memorized 61 digits but I at least became more fluent. I am now 2x faster at saying all of the numbers and all of the numbers are organized in my brain.

I also did not have a lot of time because I was disracted by my friends. So that is the thing I am going to improve on.

My Opinion Writing

Hello readers,

Today I am talking about my opinion writing on video games. And I talk about that video games are the best source of entertainment. To find out why it is the number one source of entertainment is to read on and read the rest of the amazing opinion writing.

Games, video games, or real games? I choose video games. I believe video games are the number one source of entertainment. Video games are way different than regular games because regular games are like on paper or a mat. But video games are a different world, different place, and you are a different person when you are playing a video game. I believe video games are the number one source of entertainment because you can play with anyone, there are different platforms, and video games are the number one source of entertainment because there is no stop to games.

Are you sick of going outside of your house to play games? Well, I am sick of going outside, so the first reason why I love video games is that you can play with anyone. You can play with anyone with you now which is multiplayer, for example, one time when I was playing a game, 3 of my friends came in and took a seat. They really wanted to play, so I change to 4 players and they joined in. This proves you can play with your friends and you can play without going outside. You can also play with people online and friend them, and if you are alone you can play with bots which are computers that play with and you can choose how many players you play with like 50 vs 50 or 2 vs 2. And you can play together or against people like teams or everyone for themselves.  When you play games you can join any of your friend’s games.  And when you play, you don’t need to play with someone you are with, you can play with anyone in the world and you can always have contact with the people you play with.  And you can play with people you know in real life and you can play with people you don’t know like online people that you don’t know. You can play with anyone at any age and play at anywhere. You can play games with people you don’t know and you can play with anyone you do and don’t know. You can play split screen or connect to Wifi. Video games have different multiplayer count like 50 or 5. Players can play with you without you going outside to actually see the person. You can play with people that are famous, anonymous or even your own friend. This is the first reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment.

Even though video games are the number one source of entertainment because of you can be playing with anyone. The second reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment because there are different platforms. In video games, there are different platforms and on different platforms, there are different games. And in platforms, there are different setup and there are the same games in all of them except for exclusive games for only that platform like the game “E.T” is only exclusive to the platform “Jaguar”. Different platforms can give you different abilities like you can play on the go like on the plane or you can play at home. Platforms can fit in your pocket or your luggage. And different platforms have a different program like the “Razor” brand for computers have a C.P.U. that gives you more ability to play more games. And there can be programs to let you or give you games. Games are different to Video games because video games are playable anywhere with a different platform and real games there is one platform like paper or your home road.

The video game industry was here for a long time. It might have been here before you were even born! So it is impossible to finish all of the video games in the world. And even if you finished all of the games in the world, the video games have D.L.C., updates, and video games always expand. So the third and last reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment because there is an infinite amount of games. Every second a game is made for a platform so there is an infinite amount of games. There are games online or offline or animation and drawing so you have to have different platforms. Video games are infinite because games could be downloadable or bought. Video games are impossible to complete because they will update and might have extra levels. Video games have different video games for different platforms. So you need all of the platforms to get all of the video games, and if you get all of the platforms and all the games there will be more games in the making and new platforms.

In the end of all of this, Video games are the best because you can play with anyone, play on different platforms, and there are an infinite amount of games. I love video games so much and you should too. Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you don’t need to go outside. Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you can play on different platforms.  Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you can play an infinite amount of video games. And as I always said video games are way different than regular games. They are different because regular video games are like on paper or on your street and video games are multiplayer, platforms, and infinite. Video games are the number 1 way and source of entertainment in the whole world. Video games are the best. Video games are impossible to compete. I love video games, and I hope you love them too.
