FC: STORYBOOK OF MY LIFE
1: My name is Joseph Deeb. I was born on the 2nd of my favoutite month September 1998. I love sports and going out with family, cousins and friends.

4: I talk to my family, my friends and my relatives. I talk to these people because they are the people who make my life fun and are always there for me.
5: I am Maronite Catholic. I value my relationship with God and with my family. I value God and my family because I love them.
6: My intrests are playing and watching sports. I also want to get good marks on all my tests and exams.
7: One positive challenge that I think i succeded this year was getting the courts to play in before other students. I succeded this by being quick at the lockers and getting to the courts. Another positive challenge for me is doing well in class. I so far have achieved this by listening in class and not getting distracted that much. | POSITIVE
8: NEGATIVE | One negative challenge so far was taking care of my diary because I lost it . After one day of looking I just bought another one. Another negative challenge is and will be trying not to get distracted in class. I can prevent this from happening by not sitting next to my friends and/or consentrating more.
9: There are many ways to cope as you are becoming a high school student from primary. If you remember these simple strategies school will be easy. Always do your homework Never leave things untill the last minute Use your locker Be responsible Be good in and out of class With these simple strategies you should be able to cope in high school
10: SUPPORT SERVICES | I recommend a fair few support services. Although my top 5 will be to: 1) talk to someone you know that is in high school. I recommend this because they will know what you will be going through and can be very helpful. 2) talk to your elder siblings. they will always be there for you no matter what 3) talk to your parents they are also always there for you and will help you with anything you need help with
11: 4) Another thing i recommend is kids help line. these people help kids with anything.they are very nice and like to get the job done 5) talk to the teachers the teachers will know what they are talking about because they are always around the school area and they will help you with your high school worries
12: GOALS | I have goals for this year. Shorts term goals, long term goals and an immediate goal. -short term goals -I would like to pass all my tests. -I would like to make the soccer team.
13: Immediate goal- - I would like to get a good half yearly report Long term goals- - I would like to get a good semester 2 report - I would like to learn a lot more and enjoy my life in high school
14: I would like to achieve all my goals
15: One change i would expect to deal with in the next 5 years will be electing subjects i would like to do. This will be a change for me because in primary and early high school stages we don't have the choice of subjects. This will be hard because there might be subjects that i like now and want to do but then i start disliking the subject and liking another. If i don't choose the subjects that i want to learn, there is no point of me choosing. To cope with this i will just wait untill the time comes for me to choose to make life easier. I will choose wisely. If I'm not sure about choosing subjects i want to do then i will talk to people. I will talk to my parents, I will talk to the teachers and I will select based on my choice with the help of parents and teachers.
