I have decided to teach the world (or just the 5 or 6 people who will read this) how to turn a a spread sheet into a graph on OpenOffice.
I am not sure if I want to make a video of myself doing this action, or if I will just use screenshots and perhaps make a slideshow.
I intended to use OpenOffice, and perhaps also Microsoft Office, since that is somewhat more common than OpenOffice.
I will also research how others have been able to do this and see if I can find the most simple way to explain how to make it possible.

The Financial Analysis Project went pretty smoothly. It was easy though because it was helping me to make my dream a reality. Since I was young I wanted to enter the World of Harry Potter, and now that I can, it was the clear choice for my Financial Analysis Project. OpenOffice’s spread sheet program helped me to realize my dream. It was the tool that helped me to plan out my dream.
My next assignment is to teach how to start and work a technological piece of equipment, or play a game, or put something on the web, basically teach anything that has to do with technology. I’m not 100% sure about what I want to teach. Perhaps how to get your iPod/iPhone out of German or Portuguese incase it accidentally gets there. Or maybe I will teach how to use OpenOffice’s spread sheet program since doing the last project I feel like a pro . Maybe I’ll just think of it in the next couple days.

Most of my dreams involve far away places and magical moments. Even though I am currently living in Germany, my dreams to go traveling has not changed. Perhaps it’s because I just have the travel bug. Perhaps it is the fact that even though I have been living in Germany for almost a year, I have only visited France, Luxembourg(not sure if just getting gas in this country counts as visiting it) and now London (just got back from London a few days ago). It seems like everyone except for me is traveling like crazy while they are in Europe, and I have pretty much just stayed in Germany, and I still have yet to go to Munich or Berlin. I feel extremely fortunate for my opportunity to live here in Germany and I know I shouldn’t complain since I am living in Germany, but I wish I could travel more during my time here. Anyway here is a little list of my dreams, not in order of preference:
-Visit Portugal & practice my Portuguese!
-Visit Australia & New Zealand (hey if I’m going to fly for that long, I’m going to hit two birds with one stone)
-Visit Sweden (Home of H&M and IKEA, how can it not be awesome?)
-Pretty much visit everywhere in Europe and South America that I haven’t gone.
-Go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
-Move to England and live there forever!

I’m a little late this week with my assignment. Last week I had my finals in all of my German classes and then Sunday just when I was getting into the writing groove and I could see an end in sight, BOOM, the power goes out. And of course that means the internet went out too. I was having a minor heart-attack about the paper since it was due on here on Monday morning. I think my heart attack got worse the closer the deadline came and my power was still out. But then I realized that it’s not my fault, and that the power would come on sooner or later. Which it did, at about 11 o’clock last night. So this morning I finished my paper, and I feel good about the way it turned out, and I’m glad the whole power out while having a paper due experience is over.

So I set up my computer to talk to me and I listened to all of this weeks assignments with it. I chose Bruce and sped up his voice a little bit, since he seemed a little bit slow. I liked having someone talking while I was reading, I definitely think it helped to retain information. Although whenever a word was split between two lines he would say the first part and second part of the word as if they were two separate words, and that was funny at times and at other times just annoying. But all in all I think Bruce and I are going to be good friends

So this week was pretty easy. I had no troubles in the set up of everything, except at first every time I tried to click on a link to take me to this weeks instructions for the blog I got a blank page, until about 20 minutes ago, which was pretty frustrating. But all in all it wasn’t so bad. and I like the way my blog looks now. I know you (Professor) said no white on black, but I did white on blue. I hope that is okay, if not i can change it.

So I just set up my blog and everything seems to be okay. It was pretty easy and I’m excited to write more. I’m also glad everything is in English, because last time I tried to make a blog it was automatically in German, since I made it here in Germany and it was very difficult to figure out what I was doing. All of my friends and family were confused as well. Actually, it was sort of funny. Anyway just glad it is in English this time.
