I think learning about spiders would interest me more. I've seen one spin a web before and i think its pretty sweet! In this article it says that they shed, and that's so true. My cousin had a pet tarantula once and i saw the shed! He kept it so long that it hatched babies! After the babies were hatched they ate the mom! Although i hate spiders and i think that tarantulas are very disgusting i wouldn't mind spending more time to learn about them.!
The most challenging thing that i ever had to do was probably switching schools. I switched from Shiocton School to Black Creek School. It was challenging because i already had friends in Shiocton and i knew it would be hard for me to let them go. It was hard to switch to a school where i didn't know anyone. I guess you could say I was successful! I made new freinds and I'm still in touch with my close friends from Shicocton!
The person that inspires me the most would be my dad. He has ever since i was little. He does everything. When i was little i hated sports with a passion. My dad played sports ever since he was young himself. He played basketball and softball, and I'm sure many other things. Well when i was in about second grade he tried getting me to play softball, and like i said i absolutely hated sports! But after awhile of him talking to me he got me too join. I didn't like it at the time but then he made me practice and go to his games. After awhile i started loving it... And now look where i am. My favorite sport would be softball, i love it. That would be one of the many ways he has inspired me.
To me what we post is included in my digital footprint. Like what we write to people is included. Whether its instant messaging, emailing, or blogging. Also the pictures we put on the internet can impact the digital footprint. The stuff goes somewhere and can be stored for awhile. I think it would be okay if we started using our own picture and name right now. We are old enough and have been doing this long enough. We should be able to teach ourselves about internet savvy. We are into technology at this is and it wouldn't be hard for us to understand and learn about it. Although i do believe it is helpful our teachers talk to us about it and show us movies on internet savvy. I use the internet a lot! I go on facebook, myspace, and other websites for school. For most of this i use pictures of me and my friends at houses or events. I post stuff about me telling people what i'm like. Also i use my real name! If you wanted to you could find me on google, school website, facebook, myspace, and people123.com.
If i had a choice to go to a country i think it would be Spain. This last summer my friend had an exchange student from Spain!! He was only a year older then me and my friend so we always hung out!! After a couple days we were inseperable!! He always talked about all the fun things they did and the fun things they could get away with! The Spain boy was cool and i think it would be amazing to go there and visit! Plus I'm taking a Spanish class and i think the would just help me grow on my speaking! So Spain would definalty be my choice!!
Halloween would be my favorite holiday! Its a time where you just get to have fun! There is always multiple parties to go too!! You get to dress up and be creative! I love spending time with my friends and during Halloween i get to do that! From going shopping to get our outfits and getting ready, then to going places I'm never alone! Ohh and you can't forget all the haunted houses we go to! I like hanging out with different people and this Holiday lets me do so! :))
If i could go anywhere i would go to Maui, Hawaii. It would cost about $15,000 for 6 people to go. My parents would go, my sister, two friends and of course me! We would be staying there for 7 nights and 8 days. We would have to take three flights to get there. It would be Milwaukee to Minneapolis, then Minneapolis to Los Angeles, finally Los Angeles to Kahului! When we arrive we will be staying inRoyal Lahaina Resort!
Climate change is happening everywhere and if we don't act now it might be way to late. Climate change causes things like landslides, hurricanes, floods, and even drought. It affects everywhere! There is many harmful gases in the earth. The common ones are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor. There is also natural gases caused by decaying plants, the air we breathe out, and natural forest fires. Climate change is not only affecting the earth but its also affeting me personally. I have many things that i love to do and because of the climate change I can't do them as long. For example in the summer i like to swim and summers get cloder quicker which means i only have a month or two to actually swim. I also like snowmobiling and because there is usually a lot of snow i can do that. But the problem is it's way to cold most of the time to stay out and ride awhile. There are ways we can prevent the world from warming up so fast. We can reduce the amount of animals we eat, reduce fuel, and reduce the electricity we use. If we all decreased in this stuff it would help stop the oceans from filling up so fast. So take action!!! As part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of climate change.
I picked a picture of football because i like watching it. I go to pretty much all the of our high school games! Its really fun. Plus i like just about all sports so that's why i picked football. I took this picture from Public Domain images. http://www.public-domain-image.com/sport/thumbs/football-stadiums-crowds-fields-scoreboards-chargers.jpg
An interest that i have is listening to music. I listen to music non-stop. When i sleep i have to have the radio on otherwise i lie there awake. Its pretty crazy! I also like playing softball. In my spare time i like to work-out to stay in shape for it. Anywhere i see a bat i just pick it up and start working on my form of swinging. Jenny Finch would be my favorite player on the USA team!
Well the week four challenge wasn't tat bad. I learned a lot of stuff from others peoples blog! I read a few and realized people from other states are just like us! They do many things we do here. For example some play softball, swim and run in track. I was reading a girls post and her class video recorded people talking about their school and their climate. When they were done they shared it with other people that didn't live by them. I think that is pretty cool and maybe sometime we should do something like that! This whole blogging thing i thought was gonna be a pain but it's not so bad. I just don't like some of the challenges! Talking to people form other places is pretty cool though!
Homecoming!! Well where to start? First of all this week I'm always waiting for. Its so fun and amazing. We get to do a lot of stuff with our friends. From dressing up to playing powderpuff football and the activities at lunch we all are just having a blast! I think Homecoming is like the best week/weekend ever well maybe besides prom or going to state. Although the dressing up ideas are getting old i still like doing it. But i gotta admit the game and the dance make up for it!! Ohh and don't forget toilet papering, that is also a ton of fun... As long as we don't get caught that is!
This years English class is way different then other years before. We use the computers like everyday and years before we'd be lucky if we used them once every to weeks. This year we talk to more people then just those in our grade and school. We associate with people that don't live in our state; like our epal person. Our English class this year is way more interesting. It's by far the best out of all the years.
Well to me the highlight of my summer was when we got a new four-wheeler. The guy that we bought it from needed money so my dad bought it instantly. Not long after we got it, maybe a month or two, i crashed it. At our house there is literally like 20,000 trees everywhere. One night when we were playing four-wheeler tag i was going to fast for my lights and i smashed into a tree. I knew right away that i had broken my wrist and messed up my hip. I didn't wanna get into trouble so i went to the house and acted like nothing was wrong. The next day at like one i decided to tell my mom and she took me to the doctor. I had to have surgery and pins put in, which sucked. When my dad found out he wasn't as mad as i thought he would be. He just made me pay for the four-wheeler to get fixed. Still today the four-wheeler isn't fixed and my hip still hurts every now and then. I also have three scars on my wrist, but that's minor.
