One of the items I chose was a pagani huayra because it is my dream car.  The second item I selected was a picture that represents mechanical engineering because I want to be a mechanical engineer in the future.  Lastly two items that I chose was a picture of a house and Paris because I want to travel to and possibly live in Paris.

What went well was that the video provided for layer masking helped me speed up the process.  It was difficult finding a photo that didn't show pixels when zoomed in two times.  Something that went wrong was that I accidentally removed the progress I had by accidentally clicking on the recorded history.

 I chose Brad Pitt because he was the first actor I thought of.  In this picture I have Brad Pitt's face excluding his forhead.

David Steindi-Rast explains how being grateful makes us happy.  Steindi-Rast claims that if we look back to when we were grateful we will find out that most of the time it is an opportunity to enjoy but we miss it because we are rushing through life unable to see this opportunity.  He also states that when a challenge faces us we rise to that opportunity.  David purports, "It's so simple that it's actually what we were told as children when we learned to cross the street. Stop.  Look.  Go."  If people stop take a look we will often see the opportunity of gratefulness, but people often rush through life causing them to miss the opportunity just because they don't stop.

"The Surprising Science of Happiness"

Happiness is not a goal people should have because they will most likely not find what they seek.  Happiness is like a butterfly, you try to capture it and you'll damage its wings.  Happiness will most likely happen when we are not extremely thinking about what makes us happy, but when we go on with life without having to think about happiness.  When people think about their own happiness they tend to over think and question themselves if they really are happy with what they are doing in their life.  Often time when people feel happy they tend to drown it in their fear of not knowing how to be or feel happy.

What is happiness?  What makes me happy?  Happiness is not being rich or in other words being able to afford anything you want.  Happiness is not a destination your able to reach.  Being happy isn't having the best of everything but making the best out of everything.  Being happy is about focusing on what you already have and not focusing on what's missing.  Happiness is how satisfied you are with your life, For example finding meaning in your hobbies.  Happiness is when something or someone is fulfilling your needs.  Happiness isn't about how much we have it is about how much we enjoy that makes us happy.  "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony"- Mahatma Gandhi.  Seeing family that I haven't seen in some time makes me happy.  Being able to help my siblings, friends and others.  Being able to wake up under a roof with my mother and siblings.  Being able to see a smile on my siblings face and eating the food we eat.  Seeing close friends and family exceed in their life and achieve goals makes me happy.

Self Control

I would say I have a lot of self control.  Whenever i would ask my mom for a candy she wouldn't even bother worrying about me getting hyper.  I believe the reason why i have a lot of self control is because I tend to isolate my self at times.  For example, When we do group activities in classes and my group is off task I ignore them and I do my work.  Another reason why i think i have a lot of self control is because I am a really shy person.  When it comes to having a conversation with me it gets awkward in an instant.  Another reason I have self control is because I'm patient.  I would never get mad at anyone or annoyed at anyone whenever they need help or are doing things to annoy me.  For example, I have a younger brother which all he wants is attention.  My younger brother would do anything to get the attention he wants by doing things to annoy everyone else but, i would just have patience with him.
