Inquiry Question: What does ‘understanding’ mean? The project brings me many new ideas and at the same time, it changes my point of views and gives me more angles to look at the essence while doing researches. First, when I’m looking at the word ‘understanding’, I feel it is something which cannot be discussed in sections because the topic itself is so subjective. However, after reading some psychological analysis online, I changed my mind. Understanding can be explained by reason, result,...Read More...

Hi everyone! My inquiry question for this cycle is “What does Anime bring to us?”. I enjoy this research because I am interested in Anime, besides eSports which I wrote for last round. Basically, I didn't finish this round yet, until now, I introduced the history of Anime. Before Anime exist, due to the lower technique, they cannot make it to be a video, thus, people only have manga. Manga is said to originate from scrolls dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. Before WW2, the Americans...Read More...

Hey everyone, here is my metamorphosis for the last cycle of this school year and my inquiry question is "what makes a good education?" How my inquiry now impacts my thinking Before I did this research, I never really saw outside my own "world". By that I mean, I never really realized how different schooling is around the world and how different types of schools have many differences. I think that it's because movies, tv shows, etc all make stereotypes as to what schools look like. For an...Read More...

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm a bit late with my metamorphosis; I had a lot to study for during finals week, but I'm back with my last post for the school year! For those who are just joining us, my inquiry question is... How does consumerism in the beauty/fashion industry affect our society today? Let's get started with the metamorphosis! Out of all the cycles I've done this year, I believe this inquiry has impacted my thinking the most for three reasons. First, I was aware that consumerism was a...Read More...

I am now able to continue my song, and the one I’m working on now and what might be a promising project is an angry one based on life experience. Let’s just briefly say that someone who I once considered to be a good person proved me very very wrong. In other words: My Ex Said Some Awful Things To Me And I’m Glad He Is Never Going to Talk to Me Ever Again. True story. (No one cares, Haleigh). I figure this is good song material. I already have the melody and most of the lyrics. Just letting...Read More...

Hello everyone! I'm here for the last time this school year, and I'm going to be ending this research round with my metamorphosis! This research round I looked into humans, value, how we assign value to things, and what makes something valuable. Lastly, I looked at if anything is "invaluable". First, I think my research really impacted my state of mind and my thinking. Before performing this research, I had a general idea of what made something valuable, but I didn't really understand the...Read More...

Hello! This is the metamorphosis for this topic and FINAL POST of this school year! Let's right into it. Inquiry Question: What are the qualities of a leader? On a global perspective, this can have a huge effect on the world level. These can apply from small time managers at a store to a country head.

Hey, guys, it's me. I already finished my presentation on this topic last week and the school just ended. Yay! Anyways, this post` highlight is "what exactly causes depersonalization/derealization and how could it be solved". I just want to add some more details about this :) Unfortunately, the causality of the mental diseases hasn't been investigated in detail, even doctors are not aware of the precise causes of its spectrum. A lot of people including me believe that the spectrum negatively...Read More...

In my previous rounds I have gone over what benefits you get from coffee, and what drawbacks there are. In this round I will look at the addiction side of coffee and caffeine and then come to my own conclusion of whether I think that coffee is healthy or unhealthy as I'm sure you will do as well. And if you have followed my research, or decide to go back and read my previous rounds, please let me know your stance on this topic. I've loved all of the ideas and feedback I've gotten throughout...Read More...

Draft Three, Scenery Pass (You know that it's long by now, right?)

Chapter One The Standing Stones “ Draw back to the corner of your mouth gently, and make sure the string touches your nose,” I instructed. “because if it doesn't—” “ It will hit my nose when I release,” my twelve-year-old sister Andrea cut me off. “Logan, you tell me that every time. Can I shoot now?” I sighed and stepped back, nodding. Andrea released the arrow. It landed with a light thunk in the center of a big oak tree we were using as a target. Come to think of it, it was probably the...Read More...

blah blah graduation yaaay So I’m putting the song I was working with on hold for a bit, as I want to focus on a variety of other song idea and drafts I have sitting around on my computer. If any of those get to a point where I can show them, then I will. They aren’t sung by me, I’m using a program to do that for me. Right now I’ve got some pretty promising stuff and I’m excited to work on them. So I’ll defintely be doing that over the summer when I’m not job hunting, saving for university,...Read More...

Round 8 —— What does ACG bring to us? Except all the things I talked before, I‘m going to talk about the economical effects. Within five minutes of turning on my hotel television in Tokyo I had seen two commercials for water bottles sold by One Piece characters and a McDonalds anime-style ad for jobs.

They offer something for everyone and can be purchased from a...Read More...

Hi everyone! This year flew by so fast, it still amazes me that I completed 3 full cycles throughout the whole school year. Through these cycles, I have deepened my understanding and knowledge on topics that I am personally passionate about, and I feel this has allowed me to grow and connect this learning to other things in my life and school work. This is my rap up for my third and final cycle of the year! Inquiry question: “What does a healthy lifestyle consist of, and how do we maintain...Read More...

This is Mundia last post as a student, I hope to come back next year as a mentor. I learned so much this year from teaching at Hillcrest Middle. Just a recap of what happened. We started in September teaching the kids the basics of what Butterfly Effect is and getting to know each other. It seems like such a long time ago now that I can barely remember the details. We started with questioning and teaching them what a good question is… not just a googlable one is, as we like to call it. Then...Read More...

How does recreational crabbing effect crab populations in British Columbia? This is the question I have been trying to figure out for a whole semester, and finally can say I have finished my research and have come somewhat to a conclusion. Now technically my 2nd cycle is the same question as my cycle 1, but that's because this was quite a big project, and it took me lots of time to get out and do the research. So... this metamorphosis is on the same question, but since the last one some of...Read More...

Hey everyone! The school year is once again coming to an end, so here is my metamorphosis for the end of the cycle. My inquiry question has been: “Why do some suffer more from performance anxiety than others?”. I looked into the symptoms of performance anxiety and what goes on in our brain, I researched the impact of it on our performance and what factors make it more or less tolerable, and finally I learned what performers do to overcome performance anxiety, and what not to do. How my...Read More...

Hey guys! I`m sorry for late posting..It`s almost like last week of the school, and all the teachers are trying to kill me with tons of essays.. Anyways, this time I`d like to share with you guys about my thoughts and research progress for my inquiry, more specifically than my previous post. Today`s highlight is "Do I really have a mental illness and how do you know if I have some?" As I already talked in my last post, I sometimes feel like I`m not here and see things like VR since I was...Read More...

In this section, I’ll continue to explain other factors which may influence the way we feel ‘be understood’. What I found: 3. The lack of accessibility and responsiveness Accessibility in relationships means that "I know that I can find you when I need it, and I also know that at the time you could be obtained by me”[1][2]. The lack of accessibility will make it impossible for us to believe that when there is a need, the other may help us. It can be said that how others deal with the...Read More...
