Personal Post: Malaysia Airlines

HOW DO YOU LOSE A PLANE! I don't understand how you do that! I mean it's a PLANE! This whole situation is very interesting to me. There are different stories about what the plane did and where they think it went. It's weird because the plane went completely off course and stayed off course for a long time, but no one in any control centres around noticed this. Some people are saying that the plane was going in off patterns in order to dodge the satilites but would no one notice this? Now their searching the Indian Sea for it because it could have gone one of two ways, either to land or to water. Now everyone is worried they won't find it in time to find the black box which holds all the information so they can figure out what went wrong. This whole situation is very confusing. The families who had people on board that they knew must be devastated because there hasn't been too many findings on the plane or where they think it went. But how every this situation ends I hope something like this never has to happen again.


Tomorrow is the spring finale of pretty little liars! I'm so excited! The preview looks really intense which makes it so much better because you just want to find out what's going to happen next, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat and really entertained! I really hope they don't end it with a cliff ranger because I don't have the patients to wait months and months for it to come back to TV. Pretty Little Liars is a great show because it's girly, but has suspense and mystery. 

Skype Reflection

1. The topics we presented during the Skype call to the grade 3's was how to use periods and commas in our 6 word memoir. We made it stick with the kids by not doing something really deep, or super meaningful, but something that they could relate to. Our six word memoir was "Read, write, and love your teacher." We felt they would relate to this in a positive way. Mrs. Bettes seems like a teacher the kids would like to see every day because of the interesting things she does, like Skyping with us, and having a blog. Which is how they would relate to our memoir. 

2. I felt our mini lesson went well. A strength we had was Veronica reading what we had to say to the kids. She is very bubbly so the kids reacted well to her reading our 6 word memoir. A weakness we had was that only one of us got to talk. We may have gotten our point across more if we all had a time to say something. Another weakness is that they are kids and can get distracted easily. 

3. I learned that you have to have a lot of energy while teaching kids so you can keep their attention. You also have to teach them with examples they can relate to. So it keeps their attention and they like what they're learning about.

4. I think we should take a field trip out to Thompson to meet the kids we've been talking to and interacting with.

6 word memoir: love

For this 6 word memoir the theme is used was love. The memoir reads "I love family, friends and food." Those 3 things are very important to me. I think if you you have those 3 things in your life you're pretty set in life. There is money and other important things to but money can't buy you your friends or family. It can buy you food but your family and friends can give you good. My family, friends and food are the things I love most in my life.

6 word memoir: confession

For this 6 word memoir my theme was confession. The memoir reads "I cried watching Lilo and Stitch." Which is not a huge confession of secret but I did get made fun of about it from my little sister for longer than nesessary. I was a little embarrassed because Stitch was getting taken away and it made me very emotional. I know some people would just think it's silly that I cried at a kids movie but I felt it very heart felt   

My 6 word memoir: hate

For this 6 word I chose the theme of hate. The memoir reads "The cold needs to go away." This memoir does not have a deeper meaning it just means I am sick and tired of the cold and it needs to go away. It was been here way to long and it needs to stop. The picture I used is what I have been seeing for way to many months. It is a depressing cold picture. The picture is in black and white but those are the basic colours you see in the winter black or dark because everything is dead and white because the snow covers everything! 

6 word memoir: growing up.

For this 6 word memoir my theme is growing up. My memoir reads "I'll always be there for you." Which I feel is something you need to hear when you are growing up. Things are constantly changing and sometimes you just need to know that it's all going to be alright and that someone will always be there for you. Growing up means a lot of change and sometimes you lose touch with the people you were once very close with, but just because you don't always talk with them doesn't mean they won't be there for you if you need them.

6 word memoir: future.

For this 6 word memoir the theme was future. I used my graduation picture because I feel that it's the main focus of my future right now. To work hard in school and graduate. The memoir reads "I hope it all works out." Which is very acurate for me and many other seniors in the end we all just want our future to work out. Some of us don't really know what will happen after high school even if we do have a plan we don't know how it will turn out which is why the future can be very unsure and scary sometimes.

6 word memoir: family

For this 6 word memoir the theme is family. The memoir reads "Christmas will always bring us together." I have a big family so it's hard for us to all get together, but at Christmas we are always all together no matter what. The Christmas tree symbolizes family in this picture. Also Christmas in general symbolizes family for me because I always see my family over Christmas.

Personal Post: Fashion Show

The Fashion Show was probably one of the best times of my senior year. The people in my group were all amazing and we all got along. Some of us didn't really know each other all that well so at first it was awkward but in the end we all became friends and enjoyed going to the practices and doing the big show in the end to show off what we've been working so hard on for the last few months. It all came together and was a great time. I couldn't have asked for a better group!

Personal Post: Gold for Canada

I know the Olympics are over but I would like to post about how America reacted to Canada winning gold in both male and female hockey. F**kCanada was trending, (the stars were not there in the trend) I get that America was mad, but they were really ticked off about it. I understand that most people are really into the Olympics and it's awesome when your team wins, but don't put down the winning team's country because your annoyed you lost.

Personal Post: Spring Break

This spring break I'm going to New York with my dad and sister. It's kind of a graduation present. I can't wait to go sight seeing, shopping and do all the touristie things. It should be interesting to see how long our annoyance levels will last.  But I'm really looking forward to the trip no matter what happens I'm sure we'll have a great time!

Personal Post: Graduation!

It's crazy to think I'll be graduating in about 4 months. The future is a scary thing to think about, but now that I know what I'm going to school for I'm getting excited. I can't wait to graduate with people I've known since kindergarten. It's weird to think that we're almost all grown up. Graduation should be a really fun! Tiring but fun! 

Personal Post: The 1975

I can't wait for The 1975 concert! When they first announced they were coming to my city I was really excited but than was let down when they were performing in a 18 and every bar. But for some reason they changed their venue and now my friends and I can go! I'm looking forward to their amazing concert!

This is also a metaphoto because it's a picture of a picture.

Photo Scavenger Hunt: 1

Friendship: my fashion show group. I chose to put my fashion show group with the theme of friendship because I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to have as friends and to do fashion show with.

Love: my dog. I chose to put my dog with the theme of love because I love my dog.

Hate/black and white: Winter. I chose to but winter with the theme of hate because I hate winter this year! It never stops snowing and it never seems to warm up! I chose black and white as a theme for winter as well because those are the main colours during the season.

Passion: my friend crying over one direction. I chose the theme of passion because my friend is very passionate for one direction.

Symbolism: Christmas tree. I chose the theme of symbolism because Christmas is a time that my family always gets together on Christmas. The Christmas tree represents family to me.
