What were the total hours spent on the product?
I spent a total of five hours on my research. During my hours I spent I have
learned so much. My research has helped me to realize the increase and decrease of the
men salaries. The research has helped me to understand what should I do to let the
younger teenagers know about the men salaries, and why they are rated so high. Some
people think since they are men, their salaries should be rated high. While doing my
research there are many different reasons why men are the top salary markers.

What was at least two biggest problems you encountered as you worked on the product?
A. Trying to find out what I was going to do for my proof of product.
B. How I was going to get my product done.
What did you do to manage your time?
I managed my time doing certain parts of my senior project daily. I made sure
that each day I took at least two to three hours to make an effort in getting my work
done. Another way I managed time is doing my work early before it’s due such as doing
it before I leave school. Although sometimes I would wait till the last minute to type and
Print my work, but turning it in was the efficient part about it.
What did you learn from the experience of working with other people?
The experience I had with working with others was great. It showed me how
things will turn out while working with others. This experience also showed people that a
person can get alone with anybody by showing a little communication and effort. I also
learned it’s good to work with others, who are dependable and can help you get the job
done. Working with others helps you learn about someone and their personalities. This

What personal satisfaction was gained from this project experience?
From this project experience, I gained three personal satisfactions. The first
personal satisfaction gained was to strive and work hard. If you work hard, nothing can
get in your way to get the job complete. The second personal satisfaction that was gained
was confidence. The reason is because I thought I wasn’t going to be able to get my
project done, but I did. Time management was another personal satisfaction I gained
because I know now how to mange my time efficiently.
Briefly describe what you consider to be a “stretch” for you in completing this project?
The stretch for me was to get the project done. Everything was coming so fast and
I didn’t think I had time. This project takes a lot time and consist of a lot of work, and
you have to make sure you complete all the things that needed to be done on time. Most
of all my product for my project was a big stretch for me. It had me worried because
I didn’t know to do or how I was going to get it done. The best thing about it was that I
got the help I needed to complete my product.
