The end of global warming, a look into the future

The  My winter wonder land stories are taking a long time to write, so I’ve decided to post other things while waiting.

Here is the story of how the human race will defeat global warming, and don’t worry, I saw it in my crystal ball, tea leaves, clouds, and the like ;-).

The first disaster, how it all started

Washington, the White House

“Sir, there’s been a explosion in New York… the whole downtown… It was sudden, few survived, and most of them will be handicapped for the rest of their lives… it was very bad, all were wounded badly… yes, sir… children, sir?…Sorry, sir…Right away, sir.”

Bloggers Ed 101

Is anyone getting tired of just one story, even broken up like it is? Well, I’ve decided that I’d write about something else — not to say I won’t continue My winter wonder land, I’m just taking a break.

I’ve decided to instead talk about my blogging class. As you know, it’s winter-spring semester at schools, and though I’m homeschooled, I have a homeschool co-op that I go to every Thursday.

At this homeschool co-op, it’s the winter-spring semester, and this semester I’m taking a writing class, a speech class, and a blogging class! I’m going to talk about the blogging class.

My mom teaches the blogging class, she even set up a blog for it — if you want to read it, go to Blogging 2 Learn — where she has everything we’re going to be doing, and what week we’ll be doing it. If you ever want to get a blog, it will be a great place to go. It would almost be like you were in the class!

Besides me, there are four others in the class. They are Climbing Gecko, First Nate, Ben, and Twilie.

Though I already have a blog and don’t need the class as much, it does help motivate me to work on my blog. In fact, I’m planning to at least make one post per week — preferably more.

Well, to my blogging class friends: see ya soon!

NaNoWriMo

I AM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, so I haven’t been writing for a while, but at least for November there is a reason for that. I’ve been competing in NaNoWriMo’s young writers program. You’re probably wondering what NaNoWriMo is or means. It means: National Novel Writing Month. I have no idea how they came up with November being the national novel writing month, so don’t ask.

Anyway, here is what it is: A writing program where you set a word count goal and try to reach it before midnight November 30. You’re supposed to challenge yourself but not make it impossible. I went for 10,000 words, and I went over my goal by a 100 something.

So I won, but the novel isn’t finished yet, so I still have writing to do. If you want to compete in NaNoWriMo next year click here.

Cats in fifty words

(For Homeschool Kids Write assignment #50.)

funny pictures of cats with captions

I like — no, love — cats. They are cute, and you can tell when they are happy and when they are mad. When a cat is happy, it purrs. And when a cat is mad, it twitches its tail and puts its ears back. Sometimes they are very funny and cute.

Blooming

(For Homeschool Kids Write assignment #58.)

Beauty is all around.
Lilacs, Daisies, and Roses grow.
Out of ground, the stems proceed.
Out of stems, leaves come to give life to its flower.
Mind your step, lest you crush one by accident.
I do love spring, its fragrant smells.
Now my favorite season has come.
God, I thank Thee so much for the beautiful season of spring.

If the color green was illegal

(For Homeschool Kids Write assignment #57.)

If the color green was not allowed, many things would be destroyed: trees, grass, seaweed, flowers, emeralds, the color teal, and many more things.

If the color green was not allowed, I’d be very sad, because even though green is not my favorite color, it can be very pretty some times.

Anything made of wood would be very expensive, so would paper.

Plus, the only way to save St. Patrick’s day would be to change the color of it. For instance, instead of green maybe blue, or red.

Also the rainbow would be smaller, because it would lose a color, though I suppose we could add some color, like pink for instance, or some thing…..

So, I hope that if anyone was thinking about making the color green illegal, they will decide against it.

Busy schedule

I think of spring and fall as my favorite seasons. But fall is a really busy time for us, because there is co-op, and now every first Monday of the month is 4-H. Not to mention school, blogging, chores, and soon I’m going to start piano lessons on Wednesdays.(Do you have this busy a schedule?)

So fall, as you can see, is definitely my second, almost third or fourth, favorite season.
