Emotions Post

This is a video clip from the movie "Big Daddy", this scene make me laugh every time I see the movie, and makes me enjoy the movie everytime I see it.


This scene from "Big Daddy" makes me sad everytime I see it because,I don't think it is fair that social services took Julian away from Sonny, they love each other and then they are separated. (The first 15 times i saw this scene, I cried)


This scene is from the movie "What Happens in Vegas" and the movie had already ended and the credits were on and then this scene happens. It really surprised me because the movie had already ended but I bet the guy was even more surprised.

TOK IB Assessment

Opinion: The opinions of experts in the search for knowledge are very important because how can we believe that something is true without a reliable source such as the opinion of an expert.

Historical Reasoning

In the first Russian Revolution in February 1917 the Tsar was deposed and a Provisional Government replaced him. The revolution began due to the inequality of the clases and they wanted to even them up but instead they ended up eliminating all the nobles and leaving a Provisional Government incharge of the country, one step closer to the creation of the Soviet Union.
June 5, 1968 Robert Kennedy, democratic party presidential candidate and brother of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles after addressing his campaign supporters and claiming victory in the state's democratic presidential primary. He was a civil rights activist and supporter of Martin Luther King Jr. and after his campaign against criminal acts he was on his way to give a press conference after winning the California Primary when he was shot by a Palastinian Arab, Sirhan Sirhan, with a .22 revolver.
The Beatles began as a sensation in England and came to the United States a became even a bigger sensation. The Beatles were seen as idols until John Lennon compared the band with Jesus saying that "they were more popular than Jesus". This disturbed the christian society and The Beatles lost many of their followers, ultimately leading to the assassination of John Lennon.

5 Important Aspects of my Life

This is a very important aspect of my life, my family. This was a picture taken in Puerto Rico last September when we went for my brother's wedding. This is a picture of my me with my parents, my ciblings and my brother's wife. One of my sisters is missing in that picture but she requested not to be used for this project.

This is just a picture of the dog I would like to have. I love dogs but I am not allowed to own one because my sister is afraid of them and my mom doesn't like them. When I go to college I will buy one of these and name him "Shorty".

This is a picture of my favorite sport, racquetball. This is the sport I am currently practicing and is the sport that I enjoy the most because it is aggressive and very physical but at the same time very fun and exciting, and I think those are some qualities that define me.

This is Andy Samberg. He is one of the funniest guys that I have ever seen on t.v. and my favorite comedy actor. He acts on SNL and one of my dreams is to be able to perform on SNL and be as good as a comedian as he is.
This is one of the few things I collect, shoes. I know this is really shallow but this is one of the things that define me. I enjoy buying shoes, I don't know why but when some people are collecting coins or rubberbands, I am collecting shoes.

My Parents reasons for naming me Marcelo

My parents reasons for naming me Marcelo were very short. My mom wanted me to be named Janic because first of all she liked the named, second of all because it starts with the letter "J"and everybody's name on her side of the family starts with a "J", and last because my grandfather told her that it was from Czech Origin. My father did not like this name and he wanted me to have his same initials (M.A.S) and he could not name after him because my brother's name is the same as my father (Manuel Antonio Sandoval) so they decided to give me the name Marcelo Andreas Sandoval so that I could have my father's same initials and so that I could be the only one on my mom's side of the family that has a name that doesn't start with a "J".
