I think the most effective program that will help me remember and learn all about Microsoft would actually be the Microsoft practices and video lessons. Ribbon Hero 2 is also helpful, but I don't think it would help me remember it forever because it is just gives a quick lesson and goes on. It also doesn't correct your mistakes when you do it wrong. It just doesn't mark it down the goal you haven't done correctly.  Ribbon Hero 2 is also very short and straight forward, and that's what I like about it. What I dislike about the Microsoft videos is that they are very long, and they can get boring. The practices for Microsoft Word are sometimes confusing but after redoing the steps, it becomes easy and I learn from it because I actually took the time to do it correctly. 
       The Microsoft practices and videos really help me how to use Microsoft to its fullest potential. Although it takes awhile to get through the lesson, it is still effective. So if I had to pick which program is more effective, I would go with Microsoft. As much as I dislike sitting through the long videos, it still helps me learn. 
       Today is January 25th and it's my birthday!! My day has been going very well so far. I received many presents (junk food) from my friends, and lots and lots of hugs and birthday wishes. I appreciate all of it because it's what makes this day special! Now I can't wait to go home and celebrate it with my family and my best friends. I'm also excited for the weekend because it has been another long, tiring week of school and I need a break. I also have to prepare for my first basketball game next week! I'm super excited for that. 
          I made the basketball team! Yay! I'm so happy that I did. I feel like my hard work has paid off because I was practicing a lot. So far, we are learning defensive skills. I'm not use to it yet, but I know I will understand it soon. It's not that difficult either. Yesterday, we got to choose are jersey numbers!! I was also excited for that. Basketball has been fun and made some new friends. I think we are going to be a great team this year. 
        Today is Friday! I'm pretty nervous and excited for today. The reason why I'm  nervous is because today are basketball cuts for the team. I hope I really really realllyyy make the team because I love basketball! I know I have tried my hardest and I did my best, so now all I have to do is hope I made it. A lot of my friends say I'm going to make it for sure, but I'm not that confident. I know I should be, but I have my doubts! Even if I don't make it, I would still be happy for those who did and try out again next year. 
      On the other hand, I'm excited because it's Friday and the weekend is here. It is not just a 2 day weekend, BUT 3 DAYS! Hopefully I get to hang out with my friends and family. I'm also ready to relax because it has been a long, crazy week. I am also looking forward to watch my 49ers play against the  Falcons!! Woohoo! We are definitely taking it to the Superbowl this year! This is going to be my Friday and weekend. I also hope that we don't have any homework this weekend. Well anyway, have a good one everybody!
