✨What Punctuation Am I?✨

I am an exclamation point. I am always loud and expressive when writing, texting or speaking. I am usually happy, excited and fun, which is why I use the exclamation point a lot. I usually break the ice in a tense room by telling a joke or saying another little thing. I don’t use the period much when texting because I am not usually very serious when texting. 

Or maybe I’m an asterisk! I’m always spelling words wrong, or when someone texts me something, like “we have a test today”, I often text back, “*cries*”. The asterisk was one of the first punctuation marks I learned to use! When I was young my sister taught me to use the asterisk when you spell a word wrong. I used to use two, like this: **hi, but now I only use one: *hi.

I might even be quotation marks! When writing, I love adding dialogue. I also talk a lot, so if I were a character in a story I would have lots of lines and quotation marks would appear everywhere on a page where my character enters the story.

✨Compound Effect!✨

My class planked in school for 30 seconds at the beginning and three minutes at the end from November to December. This showed us that if we read and write everyday it makes a difference. At first, I was barely able to plank for 30 seconds but at the end I planked for 11 minutes 47 seconds!

My new daily habit is stretching. I was pretty flexible at the beginning of my challenge, but for six days I have done the same stretches for the same amount of time in hopes of being able to do a needle (a flexibility pose) and I have improved so much! (On the left of the picture above there is a picture of me when we started this challenge and on the right is me six days into it. You can see that my leg is a lot more bent on the left and is more straight on the right!) I will continue to stretch even after January is over.

Thank you for reading! Bye <3

✨Wisdom Tale Comic✨

This is the Amazing Grace Wisdom Tale. The moral is “it’s never too late to change”.

This is my comic of the Wisdom Tales, “Amazing Grace”. I chose this Wisdom Tale because it is an inspiring true story about the change of heart.

I used the app Sketchbook for the drawings and Comic Life for the layout.

✨What Interests Me✨

“Life’s little details” by kern.justin is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

What interests me are the little details in life, like every feature of a child’s bedroom that makes it look lived-in. The small details in animated movies that, even though are only a few seconds, like a hug, may take hours to animate. The sound of the rain that gets drowned out by all the T.V. and talking. Or even the small details on clothing like satin on the inside of a coat that makes it just that more comfortable.

That’s all from me. Bye! <3

✨The Rain✨


These are images I took of my backyard today because it’s raining. To you, this might just look like a mopey, sad day. But to me, it’s amazing. I love the way the rain pitter patters on grass and our deck and the smell of everything being fresh. As you can see in the second image above, there is a lake that you can only see in the winter, especially when it rains. There are no leaves on the trees so it gives you a clear view of it, and the rain makes it overflow a little bit. I love playing board games with my family when it rains, or just sitting in my room, reading a book. I love the rain.

That’s all from me today. Bye! <3

 

✨Remote Learning✨

Because I was a remote student for the first two weeks of school, our recent remote week was kind of normal for me. I think I had a very productive week! This is what a day would look like:

7:00 AM: wake up 😴 

7:03: read 📚 

7:30: eat breakfast 🥞 

8:10: math call ➗

9:00: French call 🇫🇷

10:00: history call 🌎 

10:50: LA call ✏️ 

12:06: science call 🔬

I would do homework in between calls. I would usually finish doing school work by 12:30! That’s what a day would look like for me!

I was reading Resist by Veronica Chambers during the remote week, but I am currently reading Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli.

Other activities I did were mostly stretching, playing piano with my sister and watching T.V.

Thank you for reading my post! Bye! <3

 

✨What I’m Grateful For✨

I’m grateful for the crisp falling leaves,

the Halloween candy,

the cool Autumn breeze.

I’m grateful for the turkey on the table,

the pilgrim fables,

the Thanksgiving food labels.

I’m grateful for the stockings on the mantel,

my friend’s Hanukkah candles,

the presents under the tree, never canceled.

I’m thankful for the snow on the ground,

hearts and love all around.

I’m grateful for the green leaves and flowers,

the animals waking,

the spring showers.

I’m grateful for the sun in the Summer,

the starry night sky,

the beach and the colors.

I’m grateful for my family and friends,

love never ends.

Hello! I am currently reading Resist, a nonfiction novel by Veronica Chambers. It is about famous people in history who did great things for the world. Some of the people mentioned are Frederick Douglass, Malala Yousafzai, Joan of Arc, John Lewis, Susan B. Anthony, Greta Thunberg and Sitting Bull, just to name a few. There are 2-3 pages about each person.

That’s all form me! Bye! <3

The Mysteries…

I wrote this in 4th grade but I never published it. I thought it would be fun to publish it now!

Hi everyone! I love riddles and mysteries, and I can always solve them! Find me and give me a hard one. Now onto the point. I’m going to give you some! Choose one and answer it in the comments. Rule: You can’t re-read the riddle. Let’s begin:

  1. There are three doors in a house that you’re trapped in (oh no!). The first one has no floor, so you’ll fall forever. The second one has a hungry lion that hasn’t eaten anything in one month. The last one has VERY hot fire. Which do you choose?
  2. How far can you run into the woods?
  3. A train crashed on the border of the United States and Canada. Where do you burry the survivors?
  4. A train crashed (again) and no one died, but many suffered major and/or minor injuries. Although, two were found dead on the police list! How is this possible, and who/what died?
  5. A man live son the 11th floor of an apartment. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and every evening he takes the elevator up to the 5th floor and walks the rest of the flights of stairs. Why?
