I like how you presented it different than everyone else. I liked all of your pictures and how you wrapped everything together at the end. Good work my man.
Eric Law says-Good use of pictures

I think your presentation and message were cool. I also think it was cool how your quote about milk carried all throughout your life, and being apart of a team was more important than being the star player.

Great presentation I really liked your pictures! The only thing i would suggest is one main point that is consitent with the whole speech.

SarahE2010 said...

I think it was cool that you were so involved with sports. I think you have a really positive attitude aout many things into your life. I hope you find somehting that you will really love! Great job!

Nice presentation. You looked at the screen and your notes a lot, but you communicated your message fluidly. Too bad we ran out of time, but your message was still effective- not coasting through life is important.

good statements and images to summarize how you were. I really like "the ripple effect" that is a great image. way to link in other people's speeches! that is awesome.

Great message about not making little thing more than they really are. Great presentation and determination to grow beyond who you are right now.

"Don't cry over spilled milk" is a great quote. It is very true.
I like that you talked about being laid back, and not overreacting.
I like your legacy, it is very true of you, and I don't take it as a bad thing. I see it more as you are a laid back person, you stay out of trouble, and everyone seems to like you.

I liked how you learned from dont cry over spilled milk. I really like the coaster idea! I think all the things that you compaired yourself to was awesome! I thinks its cool that you went from the coaster to the ripple effect. I like how you conected to other peoples presentations. I thought your lecture was amazing!

HaileyM2009 said...

I can definitly relate to being a clueless child!
It's awesome that you have learned to look at things a little closer before reacting to them--too many people overact to stupid stuff, and I think it's cool that you learned to control yourself. It sets you apart from most people.
It's also cool that you want to make ripples--go big, make waves!!
Nice presentation!

I liked how you started out sitting down. Being the first one to do so helped to make your presentation unique. It's great that you are active and competetive too! I used to always throw fits if I lost to my brother... that also had to be taught out of me too. Good luck at UNC too! Hopefully you will be able to find out what it is you want to do soon!

ha! spilled milk...ain't it the truth. im a fan of the lacksadaisical attitude as well. i like the ripple effect analogy. way to be supportive of the slacker! (i don't know what i wanna do yet either). great job!

KatieM2009 said...

Jake I really see the real you in this whole thing! LOVE IT!! You are a little sports freak haha! I love your coaster theme! That is so creative! What ever you do in the future you will do great!!! GOOD LUCK JAKE!!! I love that you brought in other presentations to yours!

Wilberry09 said...

you understand the concept of moving on and understanding that taking the experience from a situation as a plus. i really like the ripple effect metaphor it fits perfectly with the life that you want to lead. it probably was not a good idea to sit down, it gave you the appearance that you dont care, but it was a great presentation overall!

KatieO2010 said...

I liked how allot of your presentation is based on a motto, it organized your presentation and was a nice unifying theme. I liked how you gave a message to us, not just a message about what you are going to do. Good Job.

Anna P2009 said...

You made this presentation your own and it was still great! It was different from everyone else's. You hit a wall but got over it and the presentation was very relaxed and that shows us the type of person you are.
You had some great lessons in your presentation! You've learned a lot in the first 18 years of your life.
I love the Michael J Fox quote!

IreneL2010 said...

Jake, you really showed the class your true personality through this presentation! You are a very laid back person and I got that out of this speech. You have done so much with sports in your life, I love how you really showed how much it means to you and how you have learned lessons from it. I can tell that sports are truly a big passion and a big part of your life. I love "the coaster" idea! It really shows who you truly are! This was a really creative presentation, I love how you tried to define who you are with this!

LaurenB2009 said...

It's okay I dont have a lot of childhood pictures either. Cool relation back to Abe Lincoln and the war. Nice job relating coasters, gliders, etc. to your life. "The ripple Effect", its a cool concept that you're going to let life take you where it does. Overall great presentation, maybe you could tie in some more life exaples. Good luck next year!

MackenzieL2009 said...

I thought you good job being relaxed and connecting with your audience. I thought you did a good job with the quotes and connecting them to your life. I like how you have seen who you are now and how you want to change! That's awesome that your not content with just staying the same and "gliding" through life but you're willing to change and make an impact and discover who you are!

AdrienneB2009 said...

If you realized you wewren't getting anything out of a day as a child, you were ahead of most of us.
"Don't cry over spilled milk"
Way to ignore drama!
Moms always know what to say.
"The coaster" "Glider" "Steady Eddie" "Mr. Consistent"
the ripple effect...create change!
You have time to be whoever you want to be.
You will go far, Jake. Good luck!I watched it too!!! That was one of my favorite things I heard!

BrittneyW said...

I like your idea of the ripple effect and relating it to whats the point. I think you really did a great job showing how your future will look different and be changed. Great job!

mollyp2010 said...

I liked the idea of putting your issues in your back pocket, and then many times you find that the next day your problems seem so much smaller and more manageable then they did initially. I really liked how you have come to realize that you dont want to be the coaster, and you want to create ripples now. You seemed a little nervous, but other than that, it was a great speech.

Pat said...

Don’t cry over spilled milk and the coaster thing were awesome and creative metaphors that fit well to your presentation and your life. You did an awesome job presenting and it flowed really well. Great job

KendraS2009 said...

I have three obnoxious siblings so I do not have many pictures of myself either. You explained yourself really well. I feel like I can relate to you a lot. The ripple effect was a cool way to describe everything. Good luck in later life!
