College Visit

On April 14, 2016 I went to BVU. Which is a college located in Storm Lake. The best part about this college visit for me was in the animal room. They had so many different kinds of animals and some were creepy, some were cute, and some were strange. I am an animal person so that is why it is my favorite part. The biggest thing that surprises me is how they got the animals like did they kill them or are they fake that’s all I want to know, but hopefully there fake because I don’t like the fact of all them animals dead because like I said i’m an animal person. I’m still not sure if I want to go to school there because they didn’t really convince me enough, like the tour was cool but it was really short and didn’t convince me. On the campus we went to go see dorm rooms and it looked a little stuffy in there, but it was nice. Then I heard they give money, not actual money, but money that you can spend in a coffee shop and other kinds of stuff. In that school they mostly have classes for marketing and law enforcement. This was my college visit story, I hope you enjoyed it.

My Genius Hour Project

Hello i’m back and I am starting a new project called My Genius Hour, which means I can do whatever I want for this project. We are doing this because it is suppost to motivate kids to help them learn or teach about something you learned or already know about to other students. The following questions I will be answering are going to be down below.↓↓↓

What have you decided to focus on for your project?    →  Baking

Why is this topic important to you?      →   It has always been a passion to me ever since I was little.

What are your goals for this project?    →  My goal is to make a great cake without any help.

How will you measure your goals?       →  We will take pictures of our progress, like a before and after cake.These are my Q&A’s so I hope this helped and now I am going to talk about what I am doing right now. In class I am doing a project where I can do anything I want and I am going to do baking for a topic. I have been wanting to do this from the moment I started the project because baking has always been a passion for me from when I was little. It all started with my grandpa, I would always come over and we would start making a delicious dessert. We would either make a cake, brownies, or pie and it was so fun. I would get to decorate the cake and it would look a little messy but delicious at the same time. It was probably one of the funnest experiences of my life because he would help me decorate and then we would have my whole family come over for dinner and then we would have them try out whatever dessert I made and they would always say it was good or that I did a good job. I hope you enjoy my blog. 🙂

The Wolf Pack

This is a little video on “The Wolf Pack”

I got this photo from http://animals.howstuffworks.com/mammals/wolf-pack-mentality.htm

This is a picture of the wolf pack.

Wolves are very majestic creatures, most people say they are about to go extinct because of hunters shooting them and getting there fur to make money off it. If I had to pick my favorite kind of wolves they would be Grey Wolves or Black Wolves because those are like the wolves I have always loved and I really don’t know why, but I just do. Wolves can grow to the height of 2.8 feet tall and to me that is really tall. There speed can go up to 31 – 37 miles per hour (mph). There average life span is 6 – 8 years in the wild. There weight is 40 – 175 lbs. Wolves are endangered species and I hope we can change that so that more wolves can live and not die from hunters, because I for one don’t need Wolf fur to live. There are many different kinds of Wolves that I never knew existed, like Red Wolves or Woolly Wolves. Wolves are the most fearful to humans they are Natures Predators. Right now in the picture you might think they are really cute, at least I do, but if you look at them face to face then you might want to run because they are very hard to be taimed and there is a big chance they will attack you. There diet is carnivore. The adult wolves take care of the younger wolves until they are fully grown and good enough to live on there own or at least grow up with there wolf pack and worry about themselves. Wolves live and hunt at least 6 to 10 animals a day. In 48 states grey wolves are at there point where they are almost extinct. This has been my facts about wolves and that there are not that bad they just need to live.

Activity 1 ~ My Favorite Food

I have a lot of favorite foods like Wings, Pizza, etc. If I had to choose one favorite food then it would be French Fries because I like how crispy and crunchy it is. I also like the salt on it because that is what makes the flavor. I love french fries because it is good with every meal and it can go with every meal. I guess i am a fast food person because I just can’t get enough of french fries. I also love Buffalo Wings especially if there is sauce that I like on it. Wings are very good, some like it without anything on it just breaded but some like me, like sauce on it. My favorite sauce is honey mustard, some might say gross but you never know until you try it. What is your favorite food?

Activity 2

Write about a person or pet who has died.

My grandma had a dog who was named Max. Max was a Golden Retriever and I thought he was the best dog in the world. Max used to know tricks and play catch. How he died was a very sad and painful time. One year Max was in a fight with another dog and he injured his leg. Max couldn’t walk at all, it got worse and worse everyday. When I go to my grandma’s house I give Max a hug and tell him everything is going to be okay. One day I was so excited to see Max, as I walked through the door Max was not where he was before. I looked around the house for him hoping he got better and was walking around again. I asked my grandma where Max was and she said “I took him to the vet and the vetrinarian gave us bad news, Max had to be put down”. I was so upset that he was gone. But then I remembered that he was in so much pain and now he is in a better place where he doesn’t have to suffer anymore. Until this day I wish I could see him one more time and take him on walks like I used to.

Raise Your Voice!!!

Animal Abuse!!!

If you see a person somewhere with a dog or any kind of animal and you see that person either yelling or hitting there animal then you need to speak up because animals can’t speak for you. Animals speak a different language so they can’t yell or speak up. Animals need your help because if you were an animal I bet you wouldn’t want to get hit for something you didn’t do or didn’t mean to do. At least 10,000 dogs are dying each year from animal abuse and 10 million domestic cats die every year from abuse. I know if I saw somebody walking there dog or any animal and hitting them for something they didn’t do or mean to do then I would speak up, But the question is will you?

Am I diffrent online than real life?

Yes I am different online than offline because online I am funny and I can talk to my friends and act as weird as I want. Offline I am a shy person who doesn’t really act all weird.
