The sun parlor is peaceful and coming to peace with other and forgiving. It a really cool story. The main point of the story is about how people think material things are worth more then human beings. The mom in the story understands that having a beautiful house is not as imporant then her kids having fun in the house. West, the main person in the stroy forgets that the sun parlor is just a room and doesn't want her little sister, Sis, to play in the sun parlor. Later on thou after her mom dies she asks her sister if she ever when in there and if she would forgive her. But, before her sister could answer West says she doesn't want to know; but her sister smiles so you can tell that her sister forgives her and that they both found peace. That is why it is a forgiving story and a story about coming to rest with past things in your life.
Erik Weihenmayer is blind but, he also climb to the top of Mt. Everest. For mean he is an inspiration. Just for the simple fact that when people said he couldn't do something and it wasn't normal for people to do what he did he did it anyway. When people do things that really mean something to them and when they try really hard to do it that is what makes people wroth remembering.
The person that inspires me is my dad. The reason that my dad inspires me is because he trys hard at everthing he does. Another thing is he hardly ever gets mad, he trys really hard to keep a postive addtude. He does so many things for people and he really cares. He aways helps when he can and he never lets things get the best of him. My dad inspires me to try my best because I know that if I'm half the person he is then I'm doing pretty good.
If you had one day to do over what day would it be or would you not redo a day over? If I had one day to do over it would be one day when I was in 6th grade. The reason I would do it over is because I said somethings that I should not have to my parents. My parents did forgave me but it take along time. That is the day I would do over what day would it be for you.
A digital footprint is when you go online and do things it stays there. When i looked up my name all it did was show other people with the same name. I really don't have a digital footprint. The main idea behind knowing your digital footprint is so you understand that the stuff that you put out there stays there. If you talk about people that stays out there and they could find it. And you could get in trouble for the stuff you put out there. I know this and i know that it's a good thing that I cann't find my digital footprint because that means that I don't have a big footprint.
One of the places I would go to is Switzerland. The reason I would go to Switzerland is because I have never been there and in pictures it looks like it would be like a cool place to visit. I would like to learn about it and see what it really looks like instead of just looking at pictures. Because i wanted to know what it would cost me I chose to plan a trip their, it would cost me a total of 3783 dollars. That would include one plane ticket, one hotel room and a car. I would have to go to France and then from France to Switzerland. It's fun to see what it would cost and make plans to go, but i don't think i will ever go because it costs 3783 dollars that I don't have. So maybe I will in the future, but it would be a lot more money by then.
My favourite holiday was when I in fourth grade. My family and I went to House on the Rock and a cave. I forget the name of the cave. I was really cool to see all the different thing in the house. I remember That there was this long hallway that had glass windows for sides, I was so scared to go across it that my dad had to help me across. The cave was really cool to because i didn't see so many crystals in my life. I learned a lot about the cave and that was really cool. I hope to go back to those places sometime because I only remember somethings and it would be cool to know more things.
My fantasy holiday would be a movie holiday. It would be were you just sat and watched all the good movies from all different times. The reason that would be my fantasy holiday is because I lover watching movies from all the different times. It's fun to look back and see how different movies are made.
As part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of clamiate change. (http://www.blogactionday.org/) The climate is changing and we know that because the earth has warmed up 1degree f over the last hundred years. We may not know exactly know why it is but, scientists think it is because of human activity. The human activity includes things like burning fossil fuels, wasting electricity and other things. The reason that these things are bad is because they release carbon dioxide into the air. Once the carbon dioxide is in the air that get trapped and it sits there. And that involves the green house effect. The green house effected is when more heat is being trapped which cause the plant to became warmer. The weather patterns change because of the warming. Another thing that is causing this problem is the Ozone layer. Since there are holes forming in it, it causes more of the ultraviolet rays to come in and harm us and the plant. The rays help warm up the plant and that effect the plant and its weather patterns. So the snow will fall sooner in some places and later in others. And other places are warming up and others are cooling down. Thing that we can do to help are burn less fossil fuels, conserve energy and many more things. The plant is changing and we need to learn how to slow it down so it can be here for more people to come. I learn some of these facts from http://www.clean-air-kids.org.uk/globalwarming.html.
This picture of an open field reminds me of summer when you have no cares in the world. I love when i can just walk in a open field and think about nothing. It reminds me that the world is good and that there are better days to come. And it is the only really time i have to think by myself.
One of my favortite interests is soccer. I play soccer over the summer, school year and in the winter. In the winter I play indoor, not in the snow. I also like watching soccer sometime, but it's more fun to play soccer. If you want to see soccer scores from all over you can vist www.goals365.com. In the summer I play TASK soccer. My dad is my coach so sometimes it is really fun. Other times it really sucks, because he tells me what I did wrong and he will tell me more then once. It doesn't even matter if we won or not. I pratice with different drills, some are harder than others. If you want to know some drills to do and tip go to www.soccerdrills.com . I love playing soccer and because of it I love learning everything about it (mostly everything).
Homecoming week is fun. You can dress up and do things at lunch. But, my favorite part of the whole week is seeing people dress up in crazy clothes and act funny. Friday is the best day of the homecoming week because I get to hang out with my friends most of the day because classes are short. So that's what i like most about homecoming.
