Learning Time

May3

When I was young, my dad taught me how to ride a bike. It is quite important to me because knowing how to ride a bike saves a lot of space and unlike cars, it does not pollute the earth. This ability has helped me quite a lot, instead of having to walk everywhere, I can bike there in half the time.

3 Creativy Sites

May3

For the first site, I chose the sand painting one. It was quite fun, at first, I attempted to create a smiley face, but that didn’t go so well. Instead, I made this weird, smirking monster surrounded by black sand and orange sand. I think that this site is pretty cool but the only downside is that it takes forever to fill up the whole thing. The site is really easy to use for there’s a little gray box on the top left hand corner. All you have to do is click on that box, and the instructions will appear. If you press the letter ‘c’ on your keyboard, this color picker comes on and if you draw a line on it, it’ll change it for you according to the colors.

The second site I chose was the one that included the ‘Magic Pen’ game. It’s a very fun game actually, although I quite at during the 7th level due to extreme frustration. All you do is try and get the red ball to the red flag by drawing up shapes.

The third site that I chose was the drum game where you get to play the drums. It’s under the music section and it’s pretty amusing at first, but after a couple of minutes, it becomes a real bore. To use it, you just click on the different parts of the drum.

My Spring Break

April19

Unlike the majority of my classmates, I barely did anything during my 2-week vacation. I didn’t even leave the country, or the city for that matter. I spent most of the first week lounging about doing mundane activities due to my lethargic ways.

The second week was far more interesting. I spent the first half of the second week sleeping, and the last half actually doing things that involved getting out of bed. I had friends coming over almost everyday of that week, and I went swimming, and running. We also ate out a couple of times. That’s about it. Oh, I did do a couple of experiments that ended with nasty results, but that’s another story.

Despite barely doing anything, I must admit, it was very fun.

Amelia Earhart

April2

Amelia Earhart was born in the late 19th century and disappeared in the year 1937. After learning to fly, Earhart set the altitude record for women. She became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic although she was only a passenger. Later, she set a world altitude record and became the president of an organization promoting female aviators. Around 1932, she embarked on her flight across the Atlantic and she became the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo.

In my opinion, she’s awesome because she defied the world’s rather sexist views.

Tet: A Vietnamese Holiday

March16

In Vietnam, there’s this holiday that’s either in January or February, I don’t know which. It’s an interesting holiday that celebrates the lunar new year. There’s a giant list of things you should and shouldn’t do during Tet, some of the stuff is pretty weird though.

Things You Shouldn’t Do During Tet

1. Sweep your house.
2. Take out the garbage.
3. Wear black.
4. Visit other people if a member of your household recently passed away.

Those are just some of the things you shouldn’t do during Tet. People here believe that you shouldn’t sweep the floors or take out the garbage because it gets rid of all of the good luck or something like that. And number 4 is believed to bring bad luck to whoever it is you visited.

Things You Should Do During Tet

1. Sprinkle lime powder everywhere.
2. Return everything and pay your debts.
3. Give clothes, red objects, and chickens (?) to people.

Again, those are just SOME things. Like I said, they’re pretty weird. I’ve been told that you’re supposed to sprinkle lime powder do get rid of evil. You’re supposed to return things and pay your debts before Tet, it means that you’ll have a debt-free year or something. And giving clothes, red objects, and chickens to people improves your relationship with them, or something of that sort.

My Widgets

March16

Well, I have like 2 widgets on my blog that I added on my own will. Both are animals from Bunny Hero Labs, one is an awesome blue sheep, and the other is a pig. I gave them both pretty generic names for I was far too lazy to take the time to name them properly.

I do have other widgets though, there’s this visitor widget where it shows me where my visitors are from and how many there are. All the others like the ‘recent comments‘ widget were put up because of the Student Challenge.

My Avatar

March16

My avatar was made using Wimp Yourself during last year’s challenge, and there’s little resemblance. I do not have pierced ears, and I do not wear Potter glasses. I do have glasses though, and I do have dark hair that I wear in a ponytail. If you saw me, you wouldn’t be able to recognize me because, well, my avatar is a cartoon. That’s a bit obvious isn’t it?

Blogs I Like

March13

3 blogs that I am partial to are Charlie’s Snake Blog, Colton’s Sports Blog, and Kehana’s Blog .

I like Charlie’s blog because it’s got rather interesting posts in it. I especially like the ’10 Ways To Annoy Your Brother’ post. The header is pretty eye-catching as it features three very colorful reptiles.

I find Colton’s Sports Blog quite interesting because the posts are very well-written, such as the poem he wrote on snow. The header is pretty catchy and the theme is nice.

Last but not least, Kehana’s blog because she’s an excellent writer and her blog is filled with fun short stories.

Digital Citizenship

March2

There are nine themes of digital citizenship: digital access, digital commerce, digital literacy, digital communication, digital etiquette, digital law, digital security, digital health and wellness, and digital rights and responsibilities. All of the themes listed above are very important because they tell you how you should act and what you should do as a citizen of the online world. Basically, you should be polite, and you should keep your personal information like your address private. Another thing is stealing, just because something is on Google does not mean that you are free to use it or take credit for it. Think about what you put online. I won’t go into detail because all of those are pretty much self-explanatory.
