In this post I will be talking about how my blog changed over the two years. I will talk about the up and downs about owning a blog. At the very end of this post I also have something very exciting to tell you!
In my All About My Blog I said that I would write about big events. I did write about some big current events but not as much as I would have liked to. I also wrote about how I would write about my me ( which I did) and about all the books I read about ( which, once again, I did). I did not plan to start a novel but I did ( Blue Star Academy). I am super glad that I did decide to write a novel in the end because I am enjoying the writing.
I have a lot of posts on my blog that I chose to write about. Like my novel, things that I like, book reviews etc… Some other things it was my teacher that told me to write about it like Christmas In Portugal or The Nightmare Before School or like all the posts about the science fair.
The two most popular post on by blog are Double The Sport and Do You Think This Is Cute.In Double the sport I wrote about soccer and skiing which are two of my favorite sports. I got 9 comments on this post. I think I got so many comments because a lot of people do sports. In Do You Think This Is Cute? I have different pictures of cute animals I found on Wikipedia commons. I asked the simple question Do You Think This Is Cute and I got 7 comments. I think that I got so many comments because it was a super easy question and the animals are super cute.
I learned how to pick a theme for my blog that goes with my personality. I also learned how to comment the proper way without hurting anyone feelings. But most of all I learned where to go when I need to get a photo for my blog post. I learned where to not go get a photo ( because of copyright). I also learned that I need to put the name of the person who did/took the photo.
The best part about having a blog in my opinion is writing everything. the way I can write and express myself in words. They way I can right my feelings. The part I find frustrated about blogging is when I am blocked when I can not write anymore because I have writer block. No more ideas can flow out of me.
In the future I want my blog to have information, opinions but mostly stuff just about ME😊. At least twice a week I would like to write about some info on anything that is important. Like animals, countries, pollution etc… For my opinion I would do Movie Monday where I would review a movie. I will also give my opinions on songs and books. I will also continue giving my opinions on An Outfit A Day . Finally about ME😋 I will tell you some more interesting facts about ME😜 and my life. My blog will also continue having new chapters of Blue Star Academy a least twice a week.
The best part is this summer I WILL HAVE FULL CONTROL OF MY BLOG!!!!!!!!! I will get to write at home and not just at school. I will also be able to write anything I want on my blog. No more school projects for my blog. 😃 😄
As some of you may know I LOVE ART. For my birthday I would like to get a art kit. We looked around and found one that I liked here is what it looks like.
*24 Color Pencils
*24 Oil Pastels
*24 Watercolor Cakes
*3 Mixing Palettes
*2 Sketch Pencils
*2 Paint Brushes
*1 Pencil Sharpener
*1 Wood Case w/1-Drawer
I like to do all kinds of art from painting to pastel art. Right now my favorite thing to do in art are mandalas. Mandalas are really cool because they are very difficult to do. Mandalas are sometimes even used for therapy.
I have a lot of different art works at home that I did at school, like painting, portraits, oil pastel art etc. Many kids in our class love to do art.
What about you do you like art?

Hey everyone sorry to be gone for so long but I have been busy for the past few months. My last post was about the science fair which went great! After the Science Fair I have been studying for the worst thing of all. The thing that makes all kids break down and cry. The thing that enters the nightmare of kids. Yes……. THE MINISTERY EXAMS!!!!!!!
I had one each in English, Math and French. First was English the French and finally Math. In the English exam we had to write a story based on the pictures they gave us. Then we read a story and had to write a response for it. That was not very hard. Next was French where we had to gather in groups to discuss mini stories. Then we read 5 miniature stories ( this time by our self) and had to answer questions about them. After that we had to write a story as well. That was a little harder but it still went super well.
Last was the horrifying……MATH EXAM!!!! We had 6 mini applications to do. Then a big math application to do and lastly we had a booklet full of math questions to complete. I think that the math exam was the hardest to do.
Now that the examines are over I should be blogging a lot more now.
Did you have to do exams?
If yes, were the hard or easy or in the middle?

I am now completely finished my science fair project. I have finished my experiment and have glued everything on to my board. I start on the top right corner with my background (research). Then it is my objective, question and hypothesis. In the middle top of my board there is my pH scale. Underneath are my materials. Underneath that is a picture of cranberry juice with the pH underneath the picture. Finally at the bottom there is the procedure. On the top left is a table with the results. Underneath is a glass of milk with it`s pH underneath. Underneath that is cup with laundry detergent with the pH underneath finally at the bottom is the conclusion bringing my science fair project to an end. My title is called “Which Are Acid and Which Are Not“
What do you think of how my science fair project turned out?
Where would you have put all my stuff?

So as might know the annual Science Fair at my school is coming up. For my project I will be testing 10 liquids to find out which ones are the most basic, acid and neutral.
Originally my liquids were: milk, orange juice, water, grape juice, lemonade, lemon water, Coco- Cala, sprite, punch and cranberry juice. Now here is the new list for my liquids: milk, orange juice, tap water, vinegar, lemonade, laundry detergent, Coco-Cala, Ginger-ale, punch and cranberry juice. I did my experiment twice and put my6 answer in a 2×10 table.
I also have a PH scale with the colors and numbers of a normal PH scale would have. I have also added my background research fro my science fair project and I have also added a Objective. Friday I finished writing my conclusion and made all the titles for my project. This week-end I will be taking pictures and printing everything to glue on my board.
Two of my favorite books/movies star Shailene Woodley as the actress. She plays in “The Fault In
Our Stars” and also In Divergent and the new upcoming movie Insurgent. The Fault In Our Stars is about a girl named Hazel Grace( who is played by Shailene Woodley). Hazel has lung cancer. One day when she is going to Support Group she meets Augustus Waters ( played by Ansel Elgort. The two teens find themselves in a great adventure that evens takes them to Amsterdam. The book is by John Green and movie is directed by Josh Boone.
I am doing a never ending post. A never ending post is a post that never end’s. I will keep on adding more and more info to this post. I will be using the keywords of every paragraph to continue my never ending post.
Finally, A Real Goldilocks Bear Family
The topic I chose on Dogo News is called Finally, A Real Goldilocks Bear Family. Here is the link if you want to read this article: http://www.dogonews.com/2011/4/9/finally-a-real-goldilocks-bear-family.
Most bear families only include the mom and the baby cub. The father leaves the mother to take care of his children. But Diva family is different. Diva has her mom and her dad who takes care of her at the Primorsky Zoo, in Eastern Russia. The father of this four-month year old cub can not get enough of her. The hug and play together just like a mother cub would do with her baby cub. The father Balu can`t get enough of his cub that her even paws the cubs mother Masha away so he can have some time with his precious daughter. Usually the mother teaches the her cubs how to swim and the danger in the world, but not in this family. Balu teaches Diva how to swim and all the danger of the outside world.
Here are 5 photos of places I would like to visit and some info on why:
This is the courtyard of the Museum of Louvre and it’s pyramid. This photo is by Benh LIEU SONG. I want to go to Paris because of the boutiques, the Eiffel Tower. I also hear that Paris is the city for art and for love.
This is the Clock Tower, Palace of Westminster, London. This photo is by Diliff. I want to go to London because I hear it is a beautiful place. I want to visit the Castle, go to the London parades, shop in London boutiques and of course visit the famous Clock Tower. Who knows maybe I can even have tea with the Queen someday.
One of my previous posts was about a video called Nightmare at School. It was a comic video. I went back to the same website and found another comic video to watch. This video is called The Girl Who Hated Books. It is by Jo Meuris. She made it in 2006 and the video last 7 min and 21’s.
The video is about I girl name Meena. Her parents love to read. Now I don’t mean reading every free time they have , it’s worst then that. They read every moment of the day. The even read when they are eating. There house is filled with book. Her parents buy books at garage sales, stores and even order more from catalogs. Meena hated to read. Her parents kept on buying her more and more books. Meena never reads any of her books. She stalks then in a high tower. One day Max her cat climbed to the top of the stalk of books. She tried to climb up but suddenly all the books came crashing down. All the main characters from the books came out of their books and started destroying the house. Meena tried to get them back in by taking any books and trying to push the books against them. It did not work because it was not their book. Meena was forced to read all the books to know which books held which characters. In the end when Meena parents arrived they found her in the room READING A BOOK!!! So Menna finally learned to love books and reading that day.
