Earth Day!

Earth day is on April 22 every year, And is a celebration of our earth, and an appreciation of the planet we live on. The earth doesn’t get enough appreciation, considering that we live on it and have lived on it for our whole life. The point of Earth Day is to give back to Earth, and show it some love!

Currently, we are in a quarantine during this event, so we don’t get to celebrate it as much. Unfortunately, this means not even people realize it is earth day. But I don’t think that we should just forget about birthday because it is one of the most important days of the year! Especially with global warming, we need to look after our planet, so I just wanted this post to make sure you don’t forget about earth day because I think that it’s truly a very important day!

Free choice!

This week for the blogging challenge we had to wright about anything we want, which is actually more difficult than you would think because there’s almost no outline so you have to completely come up with all the prompts yourself. What I want to talk about is Canada only because people have some strange beliefs about Canada. First of all, we don’t live in igloos… Most people don’t think this but I have genuinely heard people think that people in Canada live in igloos, which is entirely false. I live in BC which is one of the most southern parts of Canada so it isn’t ridiculously cold where I live, but in places further north it can get too extremely cold temperatures. People in Canada love hockey as much as people think we do, and it is Canadians main past time. In BC poutine is not extremely common, but in places further east poutine is very popular and most people love it! Although it is very popular, not every single person loves poutine and eats it every day, like some people think we do. I personally likes poutine but don’t love it and because I live in BC I almost never have it. For whatever reason everybody thinks that comedian say sorry every single sentence, but yet that is probably the least factual thing to say. We do say sorry more often than Americans but it’s not something we see in every sentence. When I lived in America people still said sorry almost as much as Canadians, but Canadian say it a little bit more. I didn’t want this to be too long because if I went over every stereotype of Canadians ever, it would take a long time because there are a lot that are false and also a lot that are true. I didn’t want to bore you with a bunch of Canadian stereotypes, so I kept it pretty short. I’ll see you next week, week five!

Copyright is bad

Hey everyone, this week for our student blogging challenge we had to learn about copyright rules. The first thing I’m gonna do in this blog post is inform are you guys about copyright. When I was much younger I didn’t realize that copyright was a thing and I figured but I could probably just take any image I want and nothing would happen. Now I know that you can’t do that and you definitely shouldn’t do it, because it’s illegal. Looking back on when I didn’t know it was a thing, I realized how silly it would be if there wasn’t such thing as copyright. There are ways to find images that aren’t copyrighted though, and I’m gonna tell you a few of those ways

One easy way of avoiding copyright is to look on Google images, but then click on advanced search and choose labelled for reuse, or if you’re planning to modify it then choose labelled for reuse and modification. Another way is to find a website that has royalty free photos and find a photo that you like. Also you can take your own photos or make your own photos, but I’ll get into that more later. A good source to find copyright free photos is Unsplash.


Making my own image.

For making my own image I had a really good idea, but unfortunately one of my photos got deleted or lost and I can’t find it now so it’s less exciting but I still have one of the photos. My idea was to take a photo of my remote for my lights in my room, and then draw a pattern on it with my iPad, and then put it on to the remote using paint markers. The image before I drew the pattern got lost so I no longer have it, but here is a photo of it:

In case you’re not really sure what a light remote is this is what I mean:

It was actually really fun, but at first I was really nervous because I thought I was going to mess it up. After about five minutes I got more comfortable, and I almost forgot I was doing it on something that wasn’t paper and something that I actually use. Anyway, this is a great way to get copyright free photos because there’s no way they will be copyright if you were the one that took the photo.

Copyright free slideshow:


For the third task of the blogging challenge, I had to make a slideshow of photos that I found. I got these images on Unsplash. I chose images that I liked and ones that related to me.


The first one I really liked because it’s really colourful. The second one I chose because I like basketball a lot. In fact I’m going to go play basketball once I’m done with this blog post! The third one I didn’t really have a reason to put it in, I just thought it looked really cool. The last one I put in because I like flowers a lot and those were really nice flowers so I had to put them in.




For the 4th task, we had to write a poem about a photo we found. If you read my about page (which you should do if you haven’t) you would know that I love hockey. I found a super cool photo on unsplash. As soon as I saw it I thought of a poem! Here is the image:



The poem I came up with is a couplet, because that is my favourite type of poem! Here is my poem:


As soon as he put on his skates

He wanted to be one of the greats.


Guess the sentence



For the fifth and final task we were asked to either add an image and write the start of a story, or make a sentence guessing game. I made a sentence guessing game! It’s basically a series of pictures and you have to guess the sentence they make up in the comments. Here is my sentence:

Can you guess what the says? Good luck solving it and see you next week… free choice week!!!

Di Provincials… But Online!

For the provincial tournament, we had to go on a zoom call with appraisers, and it was nothing like I thought it would be. It was pretty difficult to figure out how to do improv on a zoom call because it’s hard to show where people are on stage with multiple different screens. Originally we had planned to work on our sound effects and our use of the stage for the provincial tournament, because in the regional tournament we didn’t do those things very well. Unfortunately those things were probably the two hardest things to do online. For example, it’s hard to move around on Zoom because you can be on different positions on different people’s screens. Also for the sound effects, you can’t really tell how loud they’re going to be for everybody else. Another thing that we had to work around was cutting each other off, because it’s really hard to tell when other people are talking if you were talking so we had to make sure we didn’t talk while someone else was talking. Speaking about the regional tournament, if you want to see my regional tournament post it’s right here.
The hardest part about all of this was that we had only three days to come up with how we were going to do this online. We had practised for a few months, and then we had to scratch almost all of what we had practised. I think our presentation went pretty well, but it was not as it would’ve been in real life. One thing we did very well is we incorporated everyone into the skit evenly. Here is a photo of us right before our presentation:


As you can see,  it would be pretty hard to show movement on the screen as moving on stage. Overall I was pretty happy with our performance considering we only had a few days to adapt to the new way of doing our presentation!

How to comment on my post!

If you want to comment on one of my posts, there’s a way to do that, and it’s very simple. EDU Blogs is not the best website and it’s a little hard to navigate but once you know it’s very easy to do. I made a little video describing how to do it, and it’s right Here. I hope that you check it out and hopefully comment on one of my posts!


My Avatar

This is my avatar!!!

This was one of the coolest things I’ve done and it turned out super cool! I made it on Avachara. It was a really cool website and it was super easy to use and it was very fun customize my avatar to look like me. I had a lot of fun with this and I now know how to make an avatar which is a skill that will likely be useful later in life.
