A Change In Direction

It is nearing the end of the school year and because of that my focus of my project has changed.  I have come the realization that the probability that I will finish this project in time is not very high. Instead, as my teacher suggests, I am going to start to look into what I want to talk about in my speech for the end of this project. We are supposed to talk about what we have learned by doing this 20 time project and for me that question is difficult to answer since I wasn't able to accomplish my goal. Obviously I learned that by setting such a huge goal for myself I made it very difficult to achieve but I don't want to spend 10 minutes talking about that. Instead I have decided to focus on my generation and the power that we have.
My generation has access to things that previous generations could have never dreamed of. With the help of the Internet, ideas and information can be shared within second to people on the other side of the world. I decided to focus on this because of a comment that I received on one of my posts that said that they were happy that I, being a young teen, had chosen to focus my project on such a big and important issue. I feel that while a lot of people my age use the Internet for good such as this, the Internet is also not being used to its full potential and I wasn't to try and encourage more people to not just speak their mind online but say their part on controversial topics going on in the world not just with celebrities. With all the people that use the Internet some pretty amazing things could be accomplished and unfortunately, sometimes the Internet is used to hurt and not help people.
