Hey guys! This is the final post for the SBC 2019! I hope the title didn’t mislead you to thinking about light reflecting… I meant reflecting on all the thing that I’ve done in this year’s SBC.

I’m going to start off with what I thought was the best art of this year’s SBC. I definitely thought that the best part was the music week. I LOVE music. To be perfectly honest, listening to music is one of my favourite things to do! Anyway, onto the next thing. I think that this particular one is kind of important because, well, its regarding the future of My Blog! I’ll be using my blog regularly for the next few years for showing the work I do in school. I don’t know what kind of changes I’ll be making in the next few years but im absolutely sure they’ll be great! Well im happy that I got to participate in all 8 weeks of the challenge this year and I’m sure I’ll be doing it next year too!

During this challenge, I learned a lot of things about blogging as a whole. One of the more important thing that I learned during the SBC was about how people interact and feel when they are on the internet as opposed to real life. The most fun thing that I learned on this wild ride of 8 weeks, was the tools that a blog can give you and the fun times it can bring you.

I also learned how to use HTML!

Now, this is a plan that’s going to explain what im going to be writing about in the next while on my blog after the SBC ends. Ill be publishing reflections on all of the project we do in school (a lot) along with some about off-topic stuff like what im interested in and such. I hope people will continue to visit my blog but to do that ill need to continue to put lots of effort into these post im doing!

Until next time, bye!

See you next time!

Hey again guys and gals! Today I’m back at it again with the SBC! This week was all about music.

I’m gonna start this week’s post off by telling you about the instrument I play. The instrument I play is………. The saxophone! I’ve played the saxophone since I was in grade 4. I still don’t know hat attracted me to that particular instrument but I know that I had fun even when I wasn’t very good at playing it. Anyway, enough about me, its time to tell you about the saxophone. The saxophone is a very nice sounding instrument if you know what you’re doing. It is one of the most widely known jazz instruments out there. This is because of its iconic ability to play melodies very well in almost any song along with the way the sound blends with other instruments. The saxophone is mostly known for the tenor saxophone which is in the medium to large size range. There are 4 very common types of saxophone, the first being the tenor saxophone, next is the alto saxophone, then, the soprano saxophone which is a very small saxophone. The last common type of saxophone is the baritone saxophone. It is a large instrument, the largest in the saxophone category even, because of the size of the baritone saxophone, the musician has to wear a harness to support the instrument’s heavy weight.

In this part of my week 5 post I will be taking a survey. This survey is about your favourite music type! Please comment the type of music you like to listen to, maybe you’ll have the same musical tastes I have and enjoy hip hop/rap music, or maybe you love country music or pop! I wont judge you no matter what you say so, please be honest with your opinion!

This, the final part of this week’s blog post I will be showing you my playlist! Please, take the time to go to every video in here and tell me in the comment section what your favourite song was!

I chose those songs simply because I love how they sound and I think that they all convey an important message to those listening.

Again, I chose this song because I think that it sounds great. I don’t think this sing is trying to send a very important message though.

This is the final song of my playlist. I chose this song because it really has a great message that it tries its best to tell you when combined with the music video.

Well, with that I am concluding this week’s SBC post! I hope you enjoyed!

An above average post about an above average Oregon field study

Hi again! This post is very special. Why? you ask because it is a post that i chose to do myself. Also, well, its about my class’s field study in Oregon. So, basically, my wonderful teachers decided to bring our class on the annual Oregon field study. This particular field study has been done every year for the past 10 years (I think). This was the best field trip (by far) that i have ever been on, not just because it lasted a week but because of all of the fun stuff we got to experience with friends. The first step to going on this trip and getting to Oregon as scheduled was meeting up at the school with all of our luggage at 6:00am. However, it wasn’t the worst thing ever because it was on a Saturday so we didn’t have to panic. The drive to Oregon was about 8 hours long and most people fell asleep on the bus at some point in time. The first of the really exciting things happened on the second day. We went zip lining! The place we went zip lining was called “High Life Adventures” and it is located in Warrenton Oregon. Our class was split into 2 “tour” groups, meaning we were separated because we had too many people for one group.

This is me on the zip line at High Life

The second to last line was definitely the best because people got wet and once you finished the line there was a person dressed as Sasquatch waiting to make you jump. The best part about that was definitely seeing people’s reaction to being scared like that. To be honest, that was probably one of the best parts of the trip. on the third day we went to the Tillamook Creamery. The creamery was originally only named after its cheese but the factory is now known for ice cream, yogurt, and other assorted dairy products along with its famous cheese. The special thing about the creamery is that you get to eat as much cheese as you want. I didn’t eat much but some people in the class had a little too much cheese. On day 4 we did an Oregon coast quest. They are a sort of scavenger hunt very similar to geocaching but instead of a map you get hints and clues to find the box. When every quest group had finished the quest (or tried to) we went to the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center. Yea, it’s a mouthful. At the OSU HMSC we learned about whales and intertidal species in general. We even got to re-assemble a whale skeleton!

This is the whale skeleton that we re-assembled.

Oh yeah, whenever I mention a new day you can assume we spent the night in a state park camping in yurts. On day 5 we returned to the OSU HMSC to learn about R.O.V.s (that means remotely operated vehicle by the way) how they work, what they do, and again, we got to assemble one. My group’s R.O.V. was the best, naturally. Or it might’ve been the pilot (also me). Once we had finished and cleaned up our R.O.V.s our class went to visit Yaquina Head’s outstanding tide pools. Yaquina Head’s beach is special though, its special because it’s a beach made of almost entirely perfectly round magmatic rocks. you weren’t allowed to take even one rock home with you because they cannot be re-made or bought to replace the ones people take.

This is a picture that I took at Yaquina Head.

There was a quest there, too. We packed up, ate dinner and camped yet another night in yurts at a state park. Finally, day 6 had arrived. The last full day of this wonder-filled trip. However, that doesn’t mean that it got dull from then on, day 6 was one of the best there was. Why? You ask. Well its because we went to an arcade/all you can eat buffet called “John’s Incredible Pizza Company” the name doesn’t lie by the way, it really is incredible. They even had rides insides the building! We dove right Into the buffet and soon ate all we could. We were given our play cards and we set off for the arcade. Everyone got 20 credits and each game cost 2-4 credits. I used all of my credits and got 200 tickets, which got me a giant kazoo! The teachers wouldn’t let me use the kazoo on the bus though 🙁. That night, being the last night, we slept in cabins (they were A LOT more deluxe than the yurts) I played around on my iPad a little before I went to sleep though. On the fateful day 7, we went to northwest trek. It’s a wildlife reserve in Washington that has a bus that drives though the “free-range“ area. There were goats, moose, deer, bison, and lots of other animals as well.

This is a goat from Northwest trek.

Overall the bus part was great. But, it got better. After the bus tour was over, we went to the enclosed animals area. In that section they had: wolverine, wolves, bobcats, lynx, bears, and even bald eagles. There was one more part to see though. The animals that needed to be put in small, confined areas, for example, the skunk or the beavers, or the otters. They had more animals there than I can even remember! The sad part, that was the last place we would sightsee/learn/have buckets of fun at. The last place. The Golden Corral, an all-you-can-eat buffet of anywhere from cotton candy to steak. They Even had a chocolate fountain! My favourite part about the GC was definitely the chocolate fountain with strawberries. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate strawberries? Anyway, this was the final destination of the PLP 8 Oregon Field study. The rest of those 6 hours was spent driving back to our school. When we got there we were exhausted  but our parents were there to drive us home and throw us in the shower then into bed.

I hope you enjoyed this post about my Oregon Coast Field Study!

Bye for now!
