Blog Look Back

At the beginning of the year I didn’t really know what I wanted to write about throughout the year. I knew I wanted to write about sports and even nature or animals, but I was thinking that I would just go along with what came to my mind. I ended up writing about sports, but I surprised myself because I wrote a lot about other subjects. I had never thought that I would write about personal things, and I did, or about so many school projects I have done through this year, and I also wrote a lot about current events.

I am very happy about how my blog turned out. My writing improved a lot and my post ideas were getting better and better. I really think that my blog helped me in my English and now I am better in English. In my opinion, the best part of blogging is actually writing the posts and commenting on other people’s blogs. It’s really fun to interact with people that live at the other end of the world and that I loved it a lot.

The part of blogging that I didn’t like as much was changing the widgets and having to re-do everything when you change your background.

Even if I didn’t like that part as much, I learned a lot about technology. Now I know how to save pictures, and even crop them. I also remember to always put “copy right” every time I add a picture and I also learned new writing skills and writing forms.

Since I am so proud of how my blog turned out, if I were to have my own blog, it would be as my blog is now. I would just write what’s on my mind and I would probably write a lot of stories. My blog would be very personal and I might as well write how my competitions on skating and cycling are  going. It would really be a personal blog and the people following my blog would really know me a lot!!

 

Weather And Mood Science!!!!

Hi there!

For the science fair, as you guys may know, I am doing an experiment that has to do with the weather and our mood.

My experiment is very complicated, but I don’t have a lot left! I have to make the survey tool that I will put on my big board, and then actually put it on my board! My board is almost ready. I have all the sheets of paper that I need (materials, hypothesis, question, ect.).48px-Weather-sun-clouds-rain_svg

My experiment is not completely done. I only need one more thing, which is to completely recheck if everything is okay, and then it is to finish my board, and I will be just in time for the science fair.

 

What I Plan On Doing, My Experiment!

Hey there! If you read my old posts, you might know that I am doing a science fair. The science fair is coming up, so I have to get ready!

-The materials I need are almost ready, I just have to go and get the presentation board (at Bureau En Gros, and that I will get it on Thursday), and make my survey tonight (the survey itself.)

-Tonight I will have to explain to my test subjects what they will have to do ( which is really not complicated!)

-Tonight I will also type everything on my computer (ex. hypothesis, question, ect…)

-This weekend I will make my scale that goes from 1 to 10, and that has my questions on it for my test subjects.

-This weekend I will print everything and glue it on my board.

-And now for last, this week, I will actually be doing my experiement!

 

Get A Job!

Hey everyone! I don`t know if you guys remember, but one day I talked about the short movie “The Nightmare At school”, and I was talking about what it was about and what was happening. Well in class we had to go back to the site and listen to another short film. This time, I went and listened to the movie “Get A Job!” This movie was made by Brad Caslor, in 1985.get a job anne

It basically talks about a dog that needs to get a job  and he has this vision of what bad things could happen. I think the director was trying to show us that it is normal to be really nervous before getting a job, but it is still important to stay calm and normal. Throughout the film we see the dog going to different job interviews and one time he’s all small and way too quiet, the other time he is mean and big, and the last time he is overconfident. The dog was never being himself and he was always being rejected for it. The employers didn’t like his attitude, and so they didn’t take him for the job.

This short film is basically a musical. There is singing and dancing the whole time and they don’t talk a lot. A part that I found a little bit confusing was the beginning. There were big dogs singing a song about getting a job, and we could see the dog going into stores to get jobs, and he would never get picked. Then when he went back home, his wife seemed to be leaving him, and then he goes on the sofa, watches television and falls asleep. During he is asleep, it actually is him dreaming of what it happening.

I really liked the movie and I think some of you guys should go check it out! It’s only 10 minutes 35 seconds long! Here is the link for the video!! Hope you enjoy.

My 6 Eyes

 

The first picture was an art work made by the famous artist, René Magritte. I pretty much chose this picture because I was making a project on René and I came across this picture. Since it was an eye, I decided to take it for this project. It basically shows and eye with the reflection of clouds in it. It is simple, but I still find it really nice and interesting.

The second picture is simply just a blue eye. I took it just to show that my theme was ”eyes”.  I only took it because its an eye and it represents the eye ball.

The third picture, guess what it is!! It`s Mona Lisa`s eyes! When I found this picture I was really happy. I was happy because that was the kind of pictures I was looking for. I wanted somethings that people would recognize and would say “Hey I know that!!” And I wanted people to find my work interesting. Continue reading

Hamelin Academy

If I could design my own school, it would be a high school.  I would make it huge, and the playground would be huge too. The playground wouldn’t be for playing, it would be a sports center. My school would be high quality, and it would be one of the best sports school in the country. In the summer, the students would practice summer sports, and in the winter, they would practice winter sports.

To get in the school, you would have to be a top student, with great grades, and you would have to be an excellent athlete. If you are good in only sports, or only school, you get all the help you need to become excellent in both school and sports, and so you can still go to my school. Although, Continue reading

Never Ending Post!!!

The  next post will be very long! I will start with one subject, and I will always add different subjects, that relate to the one before. Lets get started with the first subject!!

Eco-Friendly Designer Transforms Garbage Into Glamorous Outfits

The article basically talks about the young woman, Kristen Alyce, who decided to become a designer, but not just a normal designer, a garbage designer! Before you start thinking she designs garbage’s, I’ll explain. Kristen designs dresses that are made out of garbage! If you go see the article, you see the dresses she has made, she made them out of skittle wrappers ,or even Target Plastic Bags. It’s really incredible, and you might be thinking that it might be ugly, but its far from being ugly! It’s really creative and artistic. This women had an excellent idea and I really admire her work.

She came up with this idea when she realized how much things she had and she wasted with her three room-mates. She had made a really nice dress at first, but she was actually just testing her creativity. When she saw how good she was, and how nice her dress had been, she made others! Continue reading

The Nightmare At School

In class we had to look at a short movie, and write down the fears of the little boy, and weird things that were going on in the movie.

nightmare at school 12345678910In this short “movie”, the little boy seems to be afraid of going to school, but more precisely, I find that he looks scared of doing a sort of presentation. Throughout the short  movie, we see his friends present, and we see him making sure that his presentation object is still in his pocket. He also seemed to be scared of meeting or seeing people. I get this impression because he was always trying to hide, or be alone.Then at one point, I got the feeling he didn’t want to see his “future”  and how he turns out to be in life. He was in an office, and he was seeing pictures of his friends future, but when it came to be his, he wasn’t able to imagine or look at the picture of older him. Continue reading
