How To Survive 9th Grade

You’re probably anxious and nervous to start your first year of high school. If you have the right people by your side freshman year will be fun. If you don’t have the right people I suggest you find them. The same people you start high school with will not be the same people you end the year with. Stay focused during school and DO NOT procrastinate. Get your work done on time because if you don’t it will pile up and overwhelm you. Learn to manage your time and set your priorities straight. Even if you don’t like the class or the teacher and you think what you’re doing is dumb just do it. Respect your peers and your teachers. Keep to yourself and don’t cause trouble, but also talk to new people they might become a friend. Stay away from problematic people they will only bring drama and negativity into your life. Be on time to school and all your classes. Try not to miss school as much because you’ll have a lot of work to make up. Get good grades because it will set you up for success in the years to come.

Poetry pt. 2

i was unprepared

i was anxious

i was going to meet and see new people

i was anxious

i was loved and cared for

i was betrayed

i was abandoned

i was heartbroken

i was hurting

i am independent

i am finally okay again

You are so new and you are still growing

You’re trapped

You’ll never go anywhere

You’ll never be anything more than just a tree

You’ll have a long life

Longer than mine

You are so valued

You are key to our survival

You give us what we need

Yet we are so cruel

We cut you down for our own selfish reasons

Soon we will be left without you

 

 

 

 

Commenting Game

The first blog I commented on was Hanna‘s blog. I commented on her about me page because I wanted to learn more about her. The next blog I commented on was Chelsea‘s blog. I also commented on her about me page. It’s the first thing I do when I visit someone else’s blog. I also commented on Kyle’s blog I really liked the way his blog was set up. I commented on his about me page and I learned that he’s 7 years old and lives in California. Next I visited on Benji’s blog. I commented on his post about terrorism because I wanted to know his views on this topic even though he’s still young. The last blog I commented on was Shawn’s blog and I really liked the way his blog was set up. I commented on his about me page and I learned that he likes soccer which we have in common. If it weren’t for this commenting game I would not have found some of these blogs.

Favorite/ Most Used Apps

Everywhere you go you see someone on their phone. Kids have started getting phones at a younger and younger age. There is a lot of apps on the media now that anyone can use.

Here’s a list of my most used apps:

  • Snapchat to talk to my friends and I believe you have to be 13 years old to use snap.
  • Twitter to be updated on what happens and to look at memes my friend send me and I send her memes or funny stuff back. You also have to be 13 years old to use Twitter.
  • Google Chrome/Google classroom for school because we are always on computers and this is how I do my assignments. There’s not really an age limit for this as long as you can type you can use google chrome.
  • Netflix/Hulu to watch movies or shows when I get bored. There’s not a certain age you can use this because they have a variety of movies and shows for kids and adults.
  • Infinite Campus to check up my grades and make sure I have all my assignments in. As long as you’re in school you can make an account or your parents can make an account to check up on how you’re doing.

Killing The Earth

In my biology class we watched a movie called A Civil Action.  The movie was about a lawyer working a case where they sue a big company for dumping chemicals into the ground. The chemicals from this got into the town’s water and made the children sick. We’re doing a research project about how things we use are procured, used, disposed, and how they are good and bad. This really made me think about how us damaging the earth can hurt us. I wanted to do more research about how we could help the earth.

There are a lot of things that are harmful to the environment. Things we use everyday such as cars, plastics, toothpaste, etc. The list of things that harm our environment could go on forever. Cars pollute the air by releasing carbon dioxide into the air. This is the same air we breathe in. Also plastic is harmful to the earth. Plastics are non biodegradable and this means they can’t naturally break down. They took a really long time to decompose. There is an upside of plastic because it doesn’t break. We can use plastic in many ways, like recycle. There are a lot of ways we are able to help the earth though. Instead of driving cars that run on gas we can use cars that run on an alternative fuel. Or we could walk or ride a bike places. Also instead of buying and using plastics such as plastic water bottles we can buy reusable water bottles instead of plastic. Lastly you can recycle any materials that are recyclable.

If we don’t take care of the earth now the future generations won’t have a beautiful place to live. If you’ve ever been to a national park or anything like that, it is really nice to have peace. You feel relaxed when you’re there because it’s so quiet well maybe that’s just me. Some people really appreciate nature and are nature activists. I think that we all should be aware of what we are doing to the earth and how to help the earth.

Mi Familia

My family consists of 6 well 7 members now. These members include my mom, my dad, my older brother, my two younger sisters, our dog, and of course me. My older brother Jonathan is 18 years old and is four years older than me. When we were younger we used to fight a lot I even chipped his tooth once. That was an accident though, but since then we have grown to like each other and get along. He has been away for about 8 months, but he’s going to be with us soon and i’m really excited about it. My younger sisters are Evelia and Jasmine. Evelia is 11 years old and is in the 5th grade. My youngest sister Jasmine is 9 years old and in 3rd grade. My parents let me name Jasmine when she was born. I remember I was in kindergarten and my bestfriend’s name was Jasmine so I wanted to name my baby sister after her. It’s actually really funny now that I look back at it. The latest member to the family was our dog Chica. She was a chihuahua mixed with something else. She was kind of chubby and lazy, but cute at the same time. We had her for a few months, but we recently gave her away because we couldn’t take care of her anymore. Jasmine was really sad about it even though she was allergic to Chica.

Global Issues: Equality For Women

Although you might want to believe the world is a perfect place to live in we cannot deny the fact that there is a lot wrong with the world. One of those global issues is women not being treated equal. Whether it be in the workplace, in their everyday life, or even at home women are not being treated equal. People who fight for women’s rights and stand up against the inequality are called feminists. By definition feminism means the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. Some people get confused when they think about feminism. They think feminists are people who think women are better than men, but that is not the case. They want women and men to be thought of as equal. Of course women have made progress since the 1920’s when they finally got the right to vote, but that doesn’t mean we are considered equal to men. In professional careers women are doubted that they can’t be as smart or get the job done as well as men can. Some people still believe that women should not be able to work and just stay at home taking care of their kids. In spite of this, women are starting to become more and more aware of what is happening and fighting against it. Women are becoming more empowered and working together to get equal treatment.

With Donald Trump being in office now people are starting to think it is okay to disrespect women. Donald trump has said some awful and gross things about women. He believes women who have abortions should be punished and he made his opinion public. Women were not going to tolerate this so they started having women marches to stand against Trump. These protests were happening worldwide during January. At the end of the day the only difference between a man and a woman is their body parts. Women can do the same things men can.
