2: Prologue I made this book to show all of my best work I have done over my freshman year. If I could pick certain papers, they would be these on this book. I chose the title "Drivin' with Ivan" because first of all, I like to drive, and this book is like a roadtrip of literature.
3: Letter of Introduction Hey there, my name is Ivan. I am a really fun, and active person. I love to play the electric guitar. I like animals, especially my dog. I have a Red Heeler. His name is Red. I like to play sports and be outdoors. I'm a very creative person and I'm into Filmmaking. I like to make my own video effects and use them in action videos. If I'm not doing anything then I'm either playing guitar, editing videos, or playing video games. I like to play video games a lot. I don't spend that much time on them though. I hate wasting money on a video game that seems cool, but really, it's a boring game.

6: Room, Sweet, Room My room is full of cool stuff. My guitar and Music is what makes it uniquely mine. My room is full of technological stuff too. I'm really glad I have a guitar to improvise on and make my own music which makes my room feel different and unique from other rooms. My room is the only room that doesn't have a feeling of bad things. I feel safe when I'm in my room because it's mine.

8: The Ultimate all purpose Excuse I think that the ultimate all purpose excuse would be " I'm taking a field trip to the space station." There is nothing you can do in a space station but work and do research in the station. This would work for anything like school, work, and other meetings. You have already "paid for the trip" so you can't miss it. You could tell them that ''I am a secret, under cover astronaut going up to the space station to do some top secret research and repair. Scientists are forcing me to go into outer space and into the space station. I must repair the space station before its too late and it crashes down into Earth. Then, after I'm done with that, I can begin my research.
9: Remembrance of Things Present There are a whole lot of things that I would want to remember twenty years from now. The thing I would like to remember the most twenty years from now, would be my knowledge of playing the guitar and how to master the fretboard. I would also like to remember all of the fun things I got to do and the fun things I get to do right now in the present. I would also like to remember some of the stuff I learned from people and from school. Many people forget how to have fun like you used when you were a kid. I want to remember how to have fun and hang out with your friends like you used to. I hope that my life changes in twenty years. I want to be successful, but I also want to remember all of the good times I had in the present.
10: Things I like to do to Cheer me up I like to rock out on my Guitar. I like to play basketball. I like to go on YouTube. I like to play with my Dog. I like to make and edit videos. I like to go out to eat at a restaurant. I like to learn songs on electric guitar.
11: Starry Night Vincent Van Gogh | I think that this was meant to tell an event in Van Gogh's life. Maybe this was an actual event and he made it into abstract art. It does seem like something that would happen. Maybe he's expressing his feelings by telling us he was feeling exited or happy because there's so much light in this painting. The details tell me that there must have been really big things going on in his life. I think the stars signify how big his problems or events are because the stars are very big.
12: How to Tune a Guitar Here I will teach you how to prepare before you tune your guitar. First you need to figure out what kind of tuning you want to tune your guitar to. If your learning a song with a different kind of tuning, find what kind of tuning the song is. If you are improvising, figure out what kind of music you want to play and what mood you want. Then find the appropriate tuning for the mood and type of music you want to play. Once you have found what tuning you want, simply tune it by ear, or you can tune it with an electric tuner. Tune each string to the note it must play in when in open string. If you are not tuning your guitar to a different tuning, simply tune your guitar to standard tuning.
13: Dream Car When I get my license, I would like to own my very own 2011 Camaro ss. It’s always been my dream car. I would get it on the year 2012 because that’s when I would get my license! It would have a silver exterior color with black racing stripes. It would have a nice comfortable interior with silver and black seats. It would have stick shift transmission and have the new heads up windshield display. It would have a blasting stereo system that will blow your eardrums out! I would like to drive it on the curvy roads of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the New Mexico Mountains.
14: Extraordinary Pet | My pet's name is Red. He has blond fur and has a white line of fur going from his nose to his back. Red is an Australian cattle dog, or Red Heeler for short. He is a mix between the Australian dingo and a collie. Red is almost exactly like me. He loves to play outside and loves to play fetch. He knows many tricks like sit, lay down, stay, get it, and act like a dinosaur. Act like a dinosaur is when Red sits on his back legs and sits like a dinosaur. Red loves to hang around people but he can be very shy sometimes. Red has to get to know someone first before he can play with them, and trust them. He is very protective of my family and I, he's like a guard dog. Since he is a herding dog, he loves to run as fast as he can in open areas. Red likes to get his paws wet in water but he doesn't like to swim.
