I am what people might call a “Perfectionist”. I like to be absolutely sure of what is going to happen and to do this I plan and organize pretty much everything. So, it was really no surprise when I chose to write about my future since it would be easy for me because I already know what I want to do, when I want to do it, etc.
I always want to study in a reputed school or specialized program which will help me later on in life and be a step ahead of the others. For example, in grade 6 (next year) I am going to middle school and will be taking a course on business and technology called IBT. To get a spot in this program I needed to score high in their entrance test and be kind of lucky for the lottery part of it. In high school, I want to follow the same standards, but maybe a different program. For university, I want to study in Harvard majoring in either business, medical or law and I would like to minor in literature. I’ve started preparing now, believe it or not, by doing various extracurricular activities and achieving good grades.
Now my career……I will become a lawyer, businesswoman or doctor (depending on what I major in). I will definitely be a part time author. Both my parents are in the technology field, so I will probably incorporate coding and computer science somewhere in my profession. My main focus will be my work and my writing. If something I write becomes popular, I might quit my job and become a full-time author!
When I grow up, I want to have 2 children; a boy and a girl. I’m not sure if I’ll move since Canada is such a nice country, but who knows what could happen! I want to my house to always be tidy and neat because dirty isn’t really my style.
My future is something that I have planned out perfectly and I hope nothing goes wrong! You should, of course, always keep a backup plan for an unexpected setback which is something I do have……but that’s a post for another day!
Blog Challenge Week #8:
I am not sure why, but last week our class did not participate in the challenge. But, this week there is! For this week, we were asked to choose from the list of activities 1 thing to do. I chose to do the challenge where you find out about different and interesting ways children get to school around the world. To show my ideas, I did a slideshow on ‘Animoto’, one of my favourite slideshow makers! If I forgot anything, please let me know in a comment. Thanks!
Blog Challenge Week #6:
Create a post on how to do something. Watch the prezi to learn how to braid hair!
Here is a REALLY simple story that I wrote:
“Jenny goes to the market. On the way, she sees a store called ‘Scooter Palace’ which is having a sale. A pink scooter catches her eye. She buys it and then rides it all the way home!” Now, here is that same story in pictures:
The challenge of the week–Blog Challenge Week 3– is here! I made my “Interactive Poster” on a site called “Kerpoof!”. The site is owned and operated by Walt Disney! Anyways, enough with that; here it is! (If you click on it, it gets bigger!)
Guess what? The Student Blogging Challenge has started up again! Our class started at Week #2. For this challenge, I chose to do “Activity #4”: Create a quiz about your state or country. I live in Canada so I called mine “Canada Quiz”. Unfortunately, the website that I used to create my test didn’t allow me to embed it. But, no worries! If you just click on the link below, you could take a quiz of 10 Cool Canadian questions! Good Luck and Have Fun!!!!!☺☻
1. I nominated http://kidblog.org/SpiegelmanScholars/. It is a class blog in the U.S. taught by Melissa Spiegelman. I liked their blog because the layout was interesting and the posts were as well. I liked how Ms. Spiegelman’s class had various people writing posts; not just the same person.
2.What makes a great blog?
A great blog will be colourful, creative and eye-catching. In other words, it will make the audience or readers have a desire to read it when they just take a quick look. Of course, it will also need good posts. A bad blog, will be the absolute opposite. If you are more of a visual learner, you could take a look at the “comic” underneath.
