many things that I have never thought I could do.  I thought of wonderful talents that I would like to share with you!  I hope you would fully understand after you have read this!



As a singer I have had my difficulties, but that has never stopped me because I tried and tried and tried.  I have been inspired to sing because of all these singers that soon became famous.  I have thought of singing as an entertainment to myself and others.  I sang since I was 5 because my mom used to sing this song to me and I just got so used to it that I remembered it and finally sang it.  The song was kind of like a lullaby because she sang it in sweet harmony.  I am a really big fan on jazz, classic, and fun happy songs and also the sweet sound of the piano because that’s just who I am.  I sing every time  I hear a song because that just pumps me up. So, now you know my singing life!

 Somewhere Over The Rainbow

     Finally as a painter I have fought many challenges.  I think painting gives me a chance to express my feelings but, soon my paintings will be more than good.  My dream is to have my painting in the finest museums in history!  I wish that my paintings will be as famous as the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo Da Vinci.  There are many people that say I should go to art class and I think I should.  I think art class will give myself a chance to learn new strategies in painting.  My art teacher (Mrs.Spadola) tells me whenever I mess up, that’s fine because that’s the point of painting.  You see famous paintings around the world, but you don’t realize that nobody’s perfect because everybody makes mistakes once in a while.  So keep dreaming and follow your dreams!!  So, now you know my other dream career.

     Now you know my life as a painter and singer, so in the comment section tell me your life or dream career!


     Now you know my singing and painting career!  In the comment box down below, tell me your ” soon to be career”  and tell me your story!

PictureThe Pinthrob Seeks You!
Once there was a zoo that that was not normal.  It was magical as in spying giraffes, transporting tigers, and flying monkeys.  The zoo was exposed by a monster  called Pinthrob. Pinthrob looked like a cute dog at first and at night he became a vicious wolf.  One day he decided to take all the animals and have their abilities.  The zookeeper found out and used his abilites to stop Pinthrob.  He used his teleportation and portal opening.  Pinthrob finally took the animals in a slick way. The zookeeper opened a portal and Pinthrob was never seen AGAIN!

Do You Think The Pinthrob Will Ever Get Out Of The Portal?  Do You Think The Pinthrob Will Seek You?

 
 
On June 6 we went to Liberty Science Center.  It was amazing!  We learned many different things that you may enjoy!  So continue reading!
First, we learned about different diseases in a fake subway train in Liberty Science Center.  We learned about Pneumonia, HIV, Tuberculosis, and Influenza.  It told us many sad stories about a mom who had a son to breast feed, but she didn't want to because she didn't want her son to get HIV because she had it.  Can you imagine people having these diseases and the challenges they had?


Secondly, we went to do an exciting experiment.  We were basically testing if someone's fever was positive or negative.  Which means positive is bad and negative is good, basically.  We didn't actually test real people, we tested certain beads and put these liquid substances inside a tray that divided positive and negative liquids.  Finally, we figured out the positive and negative, but I cannot say!  Now, I have learned how they know if someone is sick or not.

Finally, we watched a short fantasy movie about 2 turtles who had to escape from a tank.  The meaning of the story was people should not take or trap an animal because that can make it injured and stop making the environment clean.  The worst thing is people don't even take care of them correctly.  Like for example pollution.  Pollution can damage waters or the ocean.  Fish die and other animals die too.  Do you want that?

So as you see, their are many fun places that you can go to that can be educational!  So visit Liberty Science Center and you will really enjoy!


Have you ever been to an exciting educational place? Where have you been?  Have you ever done experiments?

Today, I will talk about 5 facts about dinosaurs that I learned at my field trip!  My class and I went to Field Station Dinosaurs!  Come on, explore with me!

      First Fact: Do you know the name of dinosaur poop?  Well, the name of it is coprolite!  I know it is gross!  Well, coprolite is a scientific name for dinosaur poop and looks very disturbing!  The girl at Field Station Dinosaurs was actually holding coprolite, but it hardened already so it's ok!  So, if anyone wants to ask you " Do you want to touch some coprolite?", you now know what it is!

The second fact is there are 5 different types of eaters.  The carnivore, omnivore, herbivore, piscivore, and insectivore.  The carnivore ate meat like the T- Rex!  The most vicious dinosaur anyone ever knew.  The omnivore was an animal or dinosaur who ate meat and plants so it was dangerous too!  The herbivore was an animal who ate plants.  An example of an herbivore is the Spinosaurus!  The piscivore is a dinosaur who ate fish.  An example of a dinosaur is the Baryonyx.  The last one is the insectivore.  The most ghastly eater ever!  Dinosaurs eating insects?  Gross!  An example of an insectivore is the archaeopteryx!
The third fact is that dinosaurs lived 56 million years ago.  They are pretty old!  Can you imagine 56 million years ago.  No one knows why the dinosaurs died.  Some theories are volcanoes, meteors, fire or ash hit and plenty other theories, but no one know the exact death of the dinosaurs?

Fourth Fact: Do you know the biggest dinosaur and the smallest dinosaur ever?  Well, the biggest dinosaur is the Argentinosaurus.  It was an herbivore.  Another one has been discovered which is the Brachiosaurus, but some people think it is not real and it was a make up.  The Argentinosaurus was 130 feet long and was 110 tons!  Can you believe it?  Now, the smallest one was the Micropachycephalosaurus.  I know, it is long to pronounce.  Well, this creature was 2 feet long and 5-10 pounds.  That is kind of less than a big baby!  No one knows if their are even smaller dinosaurs than that, so there are more exploring to do!

 The Fifth Fact:  Did you know that a group of scientists have the ability to bring back dinosaurs?  Look at yourself in the mirror right now and I know your reaction.  I know that dinosaurs are not real right now, but in the future they will.  Scientists finally found DNA of a dinosaur in a mosquito stuck in tree sap that lasted 25 MILLION years!  Scientists can't do it now, but maybe in the next 50-100 years when the scientists make the right equipment they may make dinosaurs come alive.  Imagine life 50 years from now!  The Earth may be destroyed!

Do you know more facts about dinosaurs? 


Do you think they will come alive one day?

As I was walking home from school, I took the wrong trail.  That trail led me to a dark forest.  It was cold and very frightening.  Then, all of a sudden birds swooped down from the trees and I had a feeling they wanted me to follow.  They looked peculiar because they had black feathers, but they also had a blue tail.  I have heard in ancient times birds with blue tails lead to danger.  I didn’t use what I knew to protect me.  I felt unsafe thinking about it.  Finally, it led me to the most horrifying thing ever. What do you think was the most horrifying thing that she saw?

What do you think happened to her?

Should I make a story out of this?

Leave Me A Comment Down Below!  Bye…

Have you ever noticed how everything is easy for everyone else these days?  As I walked through the halls of my school it was quiet.  No one talked to each other.  Can you imagine a school so quiet and so depressing?  Yet no one knows why.  As the sun came out I wondered why is life so hard?  Being bullied is not that easy.  This is a story that you will not enjoy.   No one knows why life is like this.  This was my life and it is my last chance to change it.  So enjoy your life, for now.

How Did You Feel When You Read This?  Have You Ever Been Through Bullying?  Can you make a well written story out of 100 words?
