How do you get into college?
You need to get the best possible grades you can during ALL four years in high school. You need to take academically rigorous classes ALL four years. It is a good idea to practice taking both the SAT and the ACT and then take both the SAT and the ACT. You should gain the support of your parents and family. Meet with your guidance counselor and key teachers to help you focus on classes, grades, and standardized tests. It is recommended that you join clubs and be involved in school activities. Enrolling in AP classes also helps.
The next step is filling out the college applications and write your admissions essay. Make sure to watch deadlines, there are a lot of them and they come up fast! Scholarships and other help is available, you just have to apply for it.

There are many homeless people in the world. We can help solve homelessness by starting a food drive at school. We can start a food drive at school, by first asking your principal for permission. Then you need to find a group that needs food. Next, you have to decided how to collect the food. Also, find volunteers and a drop-off location. Now, you have to get the word out. After that, make final arrangements and finally pick the start day of the event.
We should help homeless people because they are die from the hot and cold weather. Also, because they don't get as many things as we do. As you can see, helping homeless people is very important.
Thank you guys for being in my videos and letting me interview you. -CR
I uploaded a survey for my class to take about whether they liked better, dogs or cats. This is the information I got from the surveys.
I am an expert about dogs. I have 2 dogs (Quazi and Ginger). That is how I know a lot about dogs. Sorry cats, but you lost. Dogs are the winners. Most people who took the survey picked dogs.

1. Dont be scared. Have faith in yourself.
2. Do not skate on rocky places.
3. Use a lot of obstacles and ramps to practice on.
4. Don't be afraid to get hurt. Be prepared, have a helmet and pads on.
5. Bring your board everywhere you might need it.
6. If you can do the trick, DO IT.
** When you do a trick, you have to move your feet a lot. Keep your arms away from your eyes, because you don't want to block your vision. **
What you need to skate
First, get a board that fits your personality. When you get it, try standing on it without falling. Make sure it is not moving when you stand on it because you could fall off. Now try to push off. Next, learn to turn. It's easy just shift your weight to the other side. Try tricks when you are ready.

Scientists have been running new computer models and it found Planet Nine. Planet Nine is also being called Planet X. It was discovered last year, so there isn't a lot of information about the planet yet. The crazy thing about Planet X is that scientist haven't seen it yet! They think the reason they haven't seen it is because it may be hiding way behind Pluto. Researcher Alexander Mustill says maybe that the planet nine came from outside of the solar system so it might be an exoplanet. They have also noticed that the orbits of other objects are a bit unusual so Planet X might explain that.
Planet Nine takes about 10,000 to 20,000 years to make one orbit. Planet Nine is believed to be 10 times the mass of Earth. It is about the size of Neptune.
What makes people happy?
I researched ways to make people happy. The three ways I am going to explain are religion, watch T.V. / playing video games, and hanging out with friends and family.
Your religion can make you happy. It is because you know that someone is protecting you, that is God. Also you know that you might go to heaven. It says that the more you go to church the happier you will be. Also the more you go to church the more you behave properly. I think going to church makes me happy, because you turn into a better person.
Watching TV and Playing Video Games
If it was raining, you could play or watch TV. Also you could be with someone watching TV or play in your house. When you are alone just watch TV or play. Those are examples of watching TV and playing video games. Watching TV and playing video games makes me happy because if you are having a bad situation it lets you forget about things.
Hanging with Friends and Family
Hanging out with friends and family can make you happy and cheer you up. Also you can enjoy like with family or friends. You can create a YouTube channel with your friends and challenge them to do things (don't worry its safe and friendly). Friends make me happy because they cheer me up with I'm sad. I go out to eat with my family and it makes me feel happy because we are together and I feel safe. Family makes me happy because I feel protected and together. I feel happy.
