    Geography-I will live in New Jersey because I have no friends or family in any other state
    Society-I will etend college and have my own car I don’t eat out much so I’ll shop every couple weeks I’ll communicate with others through phones and internet.

In ten years I will be an active participating citizen. For economy I will make a living by being a contractor in construction. For geography I will live in Philadelphia in Abington or Willow Grove. It would be very arm in the summer and very cold in the winter. For society I would have an apprenticeship of being a brick layer.

  4. P:Obama charge the person how is in control of Ollie what happen. I wolbe in 10 years a truck driver. I wol voat in the election

  5. Economy
    I would probably will make money by being involve with the criminal justice system.

    when I get older I would like to live in Florida because I have a couple of family members down there and I hear that it’s very hot mostly everyday during the fall, winter, spring and summer and I wouldn’t have to worry about being here in New Jersey during the winter when it snows a lot.

    For my education I want to go to Syrucuse for criminal justice system and earn my masters degree. I would like to live in a pretty sizable house with my wife and 2 kids. I would have a car to get around for transportation. I would only eat food at home I would never do take out, maybe I’ll eat out at like a fancy restaurant. I will communicate to others respectfully.

  6. Politicial: I believe in 10 years we will have a female president. I believe this because after a while it will eventually happen just like how Obama is the first African American president for America
    Economy: I’m probably going to earn my money by becoming a cop. I would like this because becoming a cop runs in my family. I would also want to become a cop because it seems like a cool job and always wanted to be one since I was little.
    Geography: I am probably going to move to New York. I’ve always wanted to live there. I think it’s because it’s the opposite of New Jersey. New York is also the city were u get discovered in and that’s another reason I want to move there.
    Society: I’m not sure what I want to major yet but I want to got to Michigan State. I want to go to Michigan state because Nic, Erhan and I want to go there so we can go to the same school

  7. Political: In 10 years I think we will still have the same legal system we have today. The president will be in charge. I hope that by then we will have had a female president.

    Economy: I hope to make a living as a choreographer or dance teacher.
    Geography: I will live in New Jersey, not too far from Marlton. I know it’s cold in the winter but I can manage. I chose to live in this region because I pretty much know my way around and I want to be close to my family.

    In ten years I think a republic candidate is going to be in charge. When I’m older I want to be a good citizen. I will go to vote for elections because it’s another vote towards the person I think will be the best to run my country.
    I will be living by maybe getting into modeling and if that does not work out I will get a job that intrests me so I can live and get around.
    Ill will be living in a apartment or a condo. I will probably try to live in the city or in Florida. I wouldn’t warn to live there for the warm climate. It will be warm, there will be rain sun and snow if I live in the city. I chose ro live in this region because you get a little bit of everything. You experience winter, spring, summer , and fall.
    I want to go to the university of Delaware. I want to either get a degree in science or math. My major is going to be physical therapy or physical education. Learning about all sports their injuries how to coach them all everything else about sports.

I will cook at my home so I can have a healthy nutritious meal every time. I will use my phone to text message, email, and calling anyone if I need them. My prized possession will probably be something my mother gives me because I won’t be seeing her as often as I use to; every time I see it I will think of her and all the great times we had together I will miss her but that object she gave me will make me never forget all those fun memories we had together.

  9. In 10 years I will be a responsible citizen. In 10 years there will be a first lady president like in 2008 our first African American president was elected as president.

  11. The person who is in charge right now is the president of the United States Barack Obama. Honestly, I have no idea who will be in charge in 10 years. Thee is a good chance that a president will be in charge but the reality is we don’t know.

    I live in New Jersey in the North east part of the United States. Our climate is a mix between hot and cold climates. We are surrounded by Forrest’s and a high income town. I will live in a suburb preferable a single family home I would like to have a wife and a kid.

    I will have a bachelors degree in aviation to be able to become a pilot for the Air Force in the military. The food I will cook will be mostly asian food because I like the sweet tangy taste of the spices and what not. My most prized possession will be my Rubik’s cube because it represents months and years to commit to solve it. By having that I will learn to commit to things I love not just things I hate. I communicate to others verbally as well as texting so with that I am balanced at at everything because I need these skills to fly an airplane for a living.

  12. Political: the president will be in charge. Yes i will vote in every election because i want to be apart of what happens in our country.

I don’t know what collage I would like to go to but I do know that when I’m finished with collage I will be living Australia. It should be very hot in Australia so I would need to wear light clothing. I chose to live in this area for all the sun and the clear ocean water. I will be living in an apartment because it will only be me living there. I will be cooking my own food because taking out take out can be to much money. My prised possession would have to be my first collage degree. Hopefully I will have a car to take from place to place.

  14. Polital- It would be the same government. I would be a mother with 2 kids. Yes, i would 10 vote because you always want to vote for the right person so you dont have someone bad taking over.

    Economy- i would be making alot of money, and i would become a writer or do somekind of poetry.

    Geography- i would live in new jersey or flordia, like somewhere where it is hot. I would chose to live in this place because it would be hot and you can wear shorts and stuff without worrying about the snow.

I wouldnt go somewhere thats really hot like steamy because i dont want to start sweating alot. I would be living in a condo. I would have a husband and 2 kids or i could have kids. You never know what happens. But i definitely want 2 kids. And we would have some dogs you know pets for the kids. It would be a lovely family that i would have to keep in check. I would have 2 cars so in case one car breaks down i have a back up so thats great. And i would also that bikes for the little kids my little babies. My prize poisson would be my phone because i cant live without it at all. I would communicate with other by emails or just texting and calling like i always do.

    I will probably live in a city somewhere. I will live in an apartment in that city. The reason I’ll do this is because while I play hockey, I might get traded to another area. So, if I live in an apartment, I could move easier.

    I will probably like to be married and have kids while I’m older. I’m going to graduate from either St. Agustine HS or St. Joseph’s HS. If I do want to college, I will go to Boston University because they are well known for their hockey programs.

  18. In 10 years from now I think there will be a very intelligent president in charge of our country. I will vote because I would like a say for who runs us. I will make a living by finding good paying put not permanent jobs until I find the one I want to work at for awhile. I will live in New Jersey because it’s the place I grew up in even though the winters are cold I still know my way around and I’m comfortable around here.

  20. In 10 years I think we will have our first women president. Today women are very successful and I think that soon one day we will have one. For example Hillary Clinton is very successful and I think will be the first female president. In 10 years when I have the chance to vote I will. I wanna have a partial say in who the president or whoever I’m voting for is in charge. I will make a living playing professional baseball with a family and kids living a somewhat happy life. I would be fine with living here. I love living in Marlton or even overall New Jersey. I like how the weather changes so your not just stuck with the same temperature every single day. I also like living near the people i grew up with. I would attend Florida university to play baseball and hopefully get drafted into the MLB. I would like to live in an average home and have a lot of things. I would drive a Grand cherokee and my prized possession would be my family. The food I would eat would be whatever my family likes. I would also communicate nicely with others.

  21. Hi Ms. Digangi, the other day my mom was “The Good Wife” and it reminded me of the 4th amendment. A police officer pulled over a car and said “I can see pot sticking out of your car, so I have probable cause to search your trunk.” Right as I heard the police officer say that I remembered it was the 4th amendment.

  22. Political: In 10 years when I am 24 I see a very smart Republican being our country’s president. In 10 years I’ll be a responsible citizen and I’ll be active in the community. I will vote because it is my responsibility to help decide who leads our country.
    Economy: in ten years I’d like to be a professional baseball player on the either the Seattle Mariners or New York Yankees.
    Geography : I’d live up north in Seattle. It rains there a lot but I think I’d be able to get past it. It snows up in the mountains there so ud snowboard in the winter. I’ve always just had an eye for Seattle.I’ve never been there but I’d like to go one day.
    Society: My education will be 4 years at Florida State, Florida state has a great baseball program and they tend to produce many professional players.

    Economy: I will be graduate from school, and I hope I have the opportunity to make a living by doing what I want to do.
    Geography: I don’t think I will be living in NJ in ten years, I hope I can go to somewhere that is vibrant and peaceful. I hope the scenery are beautiful.
    Society: I’m not sure what collage or university I will be in ten years, nut I’m sure that I will be major in science or mathematics.Because I think it’s very useful in everyday life. I will be 24 after ten years, I don’t think I will be married because I don’t have the ability to take care of another person. I think I will drive my own car to go to work in ten years. I like to eat Chinese foods , and I know how to make them, too. My prized possession will be my car in ten tears and I will connect my friends with my phone or the computer.

  24. Political: The president is in charge since I do not believe the U.S. would change from the democracy we have now in a mere 10 years. I would be an average citizen who wouldn’t interfere without the country on a national level. I will not vote in elections since I have the choice not to and I do not believe my single vote will make a big enough difference since there is pretty much a set winner after a certain point in the elections.

    Economy: I will make a living through my own bussiness and rationing money by living without many luxuries.

    Geography: I would most likely move to Alaska for a while until I felt I wanted to move back and settle down. Rural area where I would build my own house and then a nice, comfortable town house where I could build a family. The cold climate would probably keep me from getting certain jobs, however I would plan to live off the land while in Alaska. I chose to live hear because I like survival and would like to experience a real life scenario.

    Society: I would live in a simple town house most likely off set and with a pool for recreation. I would live with my partner at the time and would most likely not have kids at this time. I would use my car and try and stay active by riding a bike and running when possible. I would try and cook as much as possible and when I couldn’t I would stop at restaurants so we don’t have to eat unhealthy choices. My prizes possession would probably be something with sentimental value between me and my partner. I would communicate through speaking and modern day alternatives such as cellular devices.

  25. Political: The person in charge of our government in 10 years will be the president elected by the people of the country.
    The type of citizen that I will be is one that is active within society. I will vote in elections to have my say in our country.

    Economy: I will make a living by having a job that i enjoy such as a teacher or engineer.

    Geography: In 10 years, I will be living in Florida in the South Region.
    The environment of my town will be constantly warm and lots of ocean area around me.
    I would live here because I enjoy warm weather constantly and would love living right near the beach!

    Society: The educational background that I will have is a Master’s degree from The College of New Jersey.
    My house will be an average size home that i share with my husband, daughter and pets.
    My transportation will be my Volkswagen Jetta to get anywhere i need to go.
    The type of food i cook will be lots of spaghetti and meatballs and I will order lots of Chinese food for take out.
    My prized possession will be my family.
    I will communicate with others by any social networks that exist, texting, e-mailing, phone calling, and face to face conversation.

  26. Political: I think that we will have a president who will switch over the government to a democracy instead of a federal republic. I think this because the democrats appeal more to the younger audiences than the GOP.
    Economic: in ten years I hope I will be a mechanical engineer they usually make $89,000 to $100,000 a year which is a fairly average and enough to live off of.
    Geometry: I hope to live in the south or at least one of the red states like Georgia, Texas, or South Carolina. Its usually hot and dry in those places, except for South Carolina, and it would be a nice change of pace from New Jerseys cold and snow then hot temperatures. I would like to move there because they’re less crowded than New Jersey and are more open to the kind of hobbies and jobs I would like to do/have.
    Society: I would like to graduate from the United States Naval Accadamy and get my masters degree for mechanical engineering and serve in the Navy or Marines as an officer for a few years. I hope to live in a medium sized house in the country. I would probably drive a Jeep Wrangler to drive around in. My most prized possession would probably my great grandfathers hunting shotgun which has been passed down from my family ever since he died. I would communicate by talking and using the phone. And I would probably order Chinese food.
