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.
