Reflection… Is It The End?

Hello everybody 1 last time. Sorry, that was kind of ridiculous. This is not the end of blogging for me, as I will be submitting some of my work along my high school way. It is just the end of the student blogging challenge this year. I gotta say, while writing this post I happened to be playing the song Skyfall by Adele. Anyways, moving on.

First things first, or rather second things second. My favorite part of this student blogging chalenge was the freedom it gave you. There were parts in which I didn’t enjoy the tasks it gave us so much, but I still enjoyed this chalenge. Even though all of it wasn’t my favorite, I really liked writing the posts where you could be a bit more creative. My 100% favorite one was the photos one and a close second was the holiday one we did last week. I’m really proud of how I described copyright and the ways in which I analyzed the photo I took. The patterns in the rain… sound familiar? If not just click the “photos one” link above to view my copyright post.

Holidays… Which Do You Celebrate?

Hello! It’s the middle of November and my mom wants to put up the Christmas lights! I celebrate Christmas, but in a very family oriented way.

To start: Each year my family celebrates Christmas, but my close family, like my parents and I, host a “Christmas Eve curry”. On Christmas Eve we invite all our close family and friends to come to our house. We do a sort of thing where everybody brings something. It’s called a potluck. It didn’t start as a curry, but after a few years we found out that almost everybody likes this type of food.

Emojis… Are They A Language?

For the first part of the week 6 Student Blogging Chalenge I chose to make a story that you can finish in the comments if you like.

(ahem) Once upon a time there was a fish who wasn’t aloud to do anything. One day he was swimming along when a helicopter came and stole him out of the ocean! He was in the helicopter when he realized that there were other animals too. The one he specifically noticed was a turtle. He was still looking around when he noticed also in the helicopter was a girl. She was looking at a bee and talking to it. He couldn’t make out all the words but he heard: little pet, keep and forever. This was when he got really mad. He head butted the glass of his tank, and ended up on the seat of a bicycle. He then jumped of the bicycle and flew through the air back into the ocean which the helicopter was flying over! The end. Epilogue. Three years later the fish was sitting in his coral house eating ice cream when… (for you to finish!)

All about… MUSIC!!!

Music is a beautiful thing. It can make you laugh or cry, sing along or cover your ears. I think that in EVERY single persons life, there is at least a bit of music. I enjoy music. I sing along in the car, I try to right songs, and my favorite, I play the flute. I play in band at my school 2 times a week and I practice a few times (wink wink)( I don’t practice that much).

Cats… are they smart?

First things first; many people who read this post probably have cats. Before we start I would just like to say- so nobody gets mad- that I do not, I repeat DO NOT, have a cat. However, before you get outraged, my neighbour has a cat and I sit with her on the porch ALL THE TIME. My parents are allergic to cats so she is not allowed to come inside. I go outside, no matter the weather, and sit with her. She comes up to the door meowing and I go outside and sit on the stoop. She pads softly around me and rubs against my leg. Then, she comes and puts her 2 front paws on my lap. If I’m lucky she will climb on up and sit down on me. If I’m really lucky and if I pet her long enough she will start purring! It’s the cutest thing!

You don’t have to read the paragraph above, but it is recommended. To summarize it, my neighbours have a cat. Sometimes I go outside and sit with her on the step.  The longer I sat there the more things I noticed!

Copyright… is it a Real Thing?

Hi again. So for the week 3 blogging chalenge we have to explain what copyright is.

So what is it? In simple words, copyright is the law that gives the creator of the work the power to say who can use it and for what. But that doesn’t explain all of it. If you happen to go onto google images and just grab a random one, you are in danger of getting a copyrighted image. In which case it is illegal to use for things of your own uses. I personally think the best option for getting copyright free images is just using your own! It’s a really easy way to get images you can be proud of, and also able to use!

My Amazing Avatar

 

So, this is my first year doing the student blogging challenge, and I had a bit of trouble creating my avatar. Thankfully I was able to complete it and now I have an avatar that I think represents me because of my hair. Just kidding. The reason my background is red is because red is my favorite colour. I like it because it reminds me of fall; the leaves on the trees and and the ones floating down like snow. It also reminds me of the sunsets during summertime.
