Brace Face for Christmas (WP13)

https://goo.gl/images/YBgzMN

This week I went to the orthodontist because I have to get braces, yay. I am going to get my braces on on December 22. I am both nervous and excited for braces. I just hope it does not hurt to much because it wouldn’t be fun to be in pain on Christmas eve and Christmas. Do you celebrate Christmas or another holiday in December? Tell me in the comments below. On Christmas eve all of my family goes to my grandparents house and on Christmas everyone comes to my house. I like Christmas because everyone is always happy and it’s always fun having all of our family together in one place. Hopefully my family doesn’t talk about my braces very much but knowing my family they will probably make memes out of my pain.

Count out three

Ainsley’s Blog is the first blog I viewed. Her blog gives fun information on interesting topics. On her sidebar, she first has her avatar which I find fun to know a bit of what she looks like. Dress Code is the post I read and commented on which had information on dress code that is a lot like the dress code at my school.

Abby’s Blog is the second blog I viewed. The background or theme of the blog is very interesting. It is defiantly an eye catcher. Click on the link to see for yourself. I viewed the post Hawksbill Turtle Art Project and found it very interesting to see the picture of her own art.

Nook’s Blog is the third blog I viewed. The home screen reminds me of sticky notes. The bottom of the blog has widgets that include blogroll, flag count, and recent posts. Images only is the post I viewed. This post was fun because it is like a game and you can figure out what a sentence means by just images.

Thanksgiving Break (WP12)

https://goo.gl/images/zJUQmG

During this past week my school has been on Thanksgiving break so we didn’t have to go to school. During that whole week I was sick, which made the break not as fun. Other than being sick, over the break I hung out with my friends and family, had a thanksgiving party, and went to Napa. We were in the Napa area for three days and there were a lot of places there for really good food. Most places we went to were very small and farm to table, with all fresh foods. On Thanksgiving My family came over to my house and we cooked a bunch of food and had dinner all together. To find information on Thanksgiving go to the website below.

Water Polo (WP11)

https://goo.gl/images/7e3J7f

This week I have started a new sport, water polo, and here is why. My neighbor is a water polo coach. My swim season has ended so he suggested playing polo. For those that don’t know anything about water polo here is a link to visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9NkKHYGFTI . What my coach did not tell me is that I am on a competition team with a bunch of high school boys and am playing with some of my friend’s older brothers. This makes it a bit more difficult because almost everyone is taller than me an I am pretty tall. To be exact I am 5 feet and 9 inches. Personally I think that’s pretty tall but at polo I feel short. And to add on to the height everyone there except for me has played water polo before. Hopefully I learn fast and get use to polo.

 

Lets talk about school: What do students do during recess and lunch?

https://goo.gl/images/DCOeoI

At recess and lunch, students do many different things. Almost all students eat at this time, which makes sense because that is what these breaks are for. But the students at my school have many interesting things that they do during their lunch and recess.

What students do at recess:

1.) talk to friends

2.) eat a snack

3.) play a sport or game with friends

4.) get prepared for their next class (ex: study for a upcoming test or quiz.

5.) read a book

6.) draw

These are a few things that students do at recess. There are endless possibilities of things you can do at recess. Most people spend their recess with people who have similar personalities as them, to be happier.

What students do at lunch:

1.) eat lunch from home or cafiteria

2.) same things as recess but for a longer time period.

3.) go in the library

4.) use electronics

5.) do homework so you dont have to do it at home

These are a few things students do at lunch that are interesting. Again there are more and these are just some things students do at lunch. I have found that most people at lunch who get food from the cafeteria do not like it.

Halloween

https://goo.gl/images/kazbrd

Halloween seems like an activity for little kids more than a holiday for everyone but I think everyone should be able to dress up and go trick or treating on Halloween. Although I feel that everyone should participate in this holiday, I do think that only young children should get candy and older people go with them to make sure they are safe and not alone walking the streets at night. Young children should have someone with them when trick or treating or else something bad might happen.

Geostorm (WP10)

https://goo.gl/images/M7kPpW

On Sunday night, I went to the movies with my dad and we watched Geostorm. It was a really good movie and I would totally recommend it to anyone that enjoys si-fi movies like the Hunger Games. Personally Si-Fi movies are my favorite type of movies but I think people who might not like Science fiction would still like this movie because it has a plot and setting that is relatable to for almost everyone.

Geostorm was released on October 20, 2017 so it is still in theaters or cinemas that you can watch it at.To find information about the movie click on the word Geostorm above. When you click on it it will take you to a page where you can find the description and information on the movie. You should watch the trailer at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuOlYPSEzSc

Water Polo (WP9)

https://goo.gl/images/N9wFb5

On Wednesday, I had swim practice and after swim there is water polo at the same pool. I jumped in the pool with the kids doing water polo to try it because I want to do water polo in spring. At first I just watched them play and then I joined the game as part of the team. It was very fun because the people there were all very nice and friendly. When I had the ball one boy pulled me underwater and I was not ready for it. I was choking on the pool water for a bit but I still was playing and trying to win the practice game. Other than that I had a lot if fun and am excited to play polo.
