What punctuation am I? That was the question that I saw. Who knows what I am. I could be a period, a question mark, a comma, an exclamation point. I could be anything. But, if I had to pick one, I would say I am an exclamation point. Why, you may ask. I am very loud, I mean VERY. I talk a lot and make my point. I make sure I am seen and my opinion is heard. When you see an exclamation point, what do you think? When I see it I know someone is emphasizing something or making their point or argument heard. Let me be clear with you, I make my arguments heard. It’s just great when people can hear you! See exclamation point. Are you more likely to hear someone being loud with an exclamation mark, or quiet with a period? Now that I’ve explained myself, what punctuation are you?
In my LA class, we did a daily habit, planking. To show that doing something every day makes you better at it my LA teacher decided to show it in a physical way. Every 2 days we would go up by 10 seconds. Towards the end we went up by 10 seconds every day. It was a cool experience and I definitely saw the difference from the beginning to end. If there’s something you want to get better at, take as couple minutes out of your day to practice. It’s worth it.
Now that we are finished with our planking daily habit, everyone gets to start their own. We have a daily habit tracker. Every day that we do it, we mark it in our tracker. My daily habit is working out everyday. This one is something I though I should do, even though I have gymnastics 3 days a week. When I’m not focused to perfecting my skills and I’m at home, I like to go on our treadmill and run. Even for gymnastics I have terrible endurance. I cannot run for long periods of time. Like I said in the first paragraph, daily habits are worth it. You should try them.
As you can tell from the photo, I have an interest in soccer. Specifically, goalkeeping. In this photo is Hope Solo, she was an amazing goalkeeper who played for the US National Women’s team. She is now retired and is a commentator for soccer matches. Why am I talking about her, you may ask. She is the goalkeeper I look up to. Now about me. I play for an NCFC Classic Gold team. I one of the teams goalkeepers. This year I started playing 11 v 11 on the big goals. Now let me tell you, I’m pretty short, I’m an ant compared to it. Not to worry because I am working on high balls. Soccer is super fun, and just being there for the team saving goals is great.
This is my Wisdom Tale comic. It is The Red and Blue Coat from Africa. I made it using the apps Sketchbook, for drawing, and Comic Life, to make the comic. I chose this wisdom tale because I thought it would be fun to draw. This wisdom tale also has a deeper moral, I’m sure we have all heard it before but do you ever apply to it. Overall, the experience of making this comic was fun, but not something I would do again. Think of it as a one time roller coaster. Anyway, if you haven’t already enjoy the comic!
For one week, everyone at my school was fully remote. Here’s my experience.
November 30th through December 4th, I had a fully remote week. Every day I had back to back calls for every class, and to be honest, it was pretty exhausting. For a week like that, you have to be prepared. I didn’t make a calendar, so I was just trying and trying to make time for my work. I think the main problem was, we didn’t do work on the call rather do it after. I do wish we had done work on the call, but it’s too late to change it. During my work week, I would do work during my breaks, and during lunch.
My advice for at home people? Make a calendar, keep track of time. It is hard to get work done when you have back to back calls. I get it, people might say, “Keep working on it after school”. If you’re like me, I have sports after school. Overall, the work load doesn’t affect much. If you have a lot of work, keep track of time. Of course you need to give yourself breaks. Maybe make a calendar. In the end, my fully remote week, was decent I just didn’t keep track of my work as I should have.
I’m grateful for a lot of things. If I had to narrow it down I would say I am most grateful for my family. If it weren’t for my parents, I would have no home or food. If it weren’t for my sister, I would be lonely and unprepared; I would have no one to look up to. I’ve taken a lot of things for granted. If you really think about it, you wouldn’t have anything if it weren’t for your family. It doesn’t matter if your adopted or not, you’ll have something.

I have scopophobia, the fear of someone behind you or watching you. I tend to notice anyone behind me, I just feel it on my back. I never feel comfortable with my back in the open or in a crowd, I always have to have my back against a wall where I see everything. This fear has actually kept people from doing jump scares from behind as a joke or for Halloween. So in conclusion, because of me fear I can feel or notice someone behind me.
