Hi there…

Hello, my name is Jesse. I’m in grade 11, I’ve been blogging for about 4 years. I started this blog for school and that remains the reason I use it. You’ll find many blog posts here that reflect on the learning I do at school. Anytime I complete a new project this is where a post about that project will be. I’ve racked up a lot of posts since grade 8 and this blog has been a fantastic archive of my growth.

But writing blog posts isn’t all I do (although it takes up a good portion). I also write recreationally. I write stories, screenplays, stage plays and poetry. I love film and television and I would love to make my own films when I am older. Some of my favourite films are Lost in Translation, Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction and A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. 

I’m fascinated by anything that tells a good story and I love telling my own stories as well. That’s why I write. I also love playing video games. The amount of effort that gets put into each of those stories captivates me and I sometimes think about what being a writer for games must be like. They are also just so much fun.

Now to top it off with one last thing about me. I perform in the circus. To answer your question, yes it’s like Cirque du Soliel stuff. I am a ground and partner acrobat but I also do a number of other things like teeterboard and trampoline. I spend about 8-12 hours a week training and at the moment it is what I devote a lot of my time too.

Well, I have to say, thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you learned a little bit about me and are interested in keeping up with my writing.

  1. Hi Jessie, Well done on your post about yourself. Your video self portrait was very professional and comprehensive. I must take a look at Keynote and see what it involves.

    My name is Merry Beau and I am a commenter from the Student Blogging Challenge.

    I teach children between the ages of 4 and 12 and I am from Ireland. Here is a link to our class blog

    My class and I have done the student blogging challenge in the past and enjoyed it.

    I can tell you have been writing and blogging for a while as you have a good style of writing as a result.

    If you get a chance you could put up the Student Blogging Challenge badge for 2018. The instructions for doing that are here: http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2018/10/01/badges/

    It would be lovely to hear back from you. You could leave a comment on our class blog.

    With every good wish

    • Hello Merry,
