Happy New Years!!
Happy New Year!! I don’t really have a New Years tradition each year, I do something new each year. For example last year, Me and my family rented a town house and watched fireworks. We went to Donner Lake which is some what by Lake Tahoe. Some years we just hang out with our neighbors in our court. This year we are going to Six Flags and watching the fire work show and staying the night across the park. How do you spend you New Years? Do you have a tradition?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Merry Christmas! I don’t know about you but Christmas is my favorite holiday. In my family our tradition is going to my grandpas and grandpas (from my moms side) and seeing my aunts, my cousins, and some people who I’m not sure who they are….. After it gets dark we open presents. When its dark out we leave, then on Christmas morning we wake up really really early and open the rest of our presents. Then later that day we usually try out all of our new stuff and go see a new movie. How do you spend your Christmas?

The topic that I chose for the last week of Student Blogging Challenge is human rights. In our US constitution the 1st amendment is basic rights. The basic rights that are stated our constitution are; religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. Another topic would be kids in different countries are not allowed to go to school. This usually only apply to girls most boys go to school while, girls do house work. These are not the only global issues with human rights these are just the only ones I could come up with for this challenge.
I am in 8th grade and we just got done doing the amendment floats which gave me the idea of bringing up the basic human rights in the 1st amendment. However on the other topic on girls not being able to go to school. In Pakistani, where Malala lives, they had ban on school for boys and girls. Malala had started getting death threats they were printed and put under he door. Malala had used Facebook very often and the Taliban had created many fake profiles and sent threats that way but it never got through to Malala. The Taliban had a meeting and they had all agreed that they must kill her…. One day Malala and 2 other girls were hurt, but Malala was the worse off. There was one bullet that went through he head, neck, and shoulder. Luckily, she was able to survive. Today, Malala has one many awards but the most recent award is the 2014 Nobel Piece Prize.
Some solutions would be is to treat girls the same as boys. Malala though it wasn’t fair for boys to have the right to an education than girls. She even wrote a book I am Malala./

On a regular school day. I wake up around at 6’o clock. I leave for school around 7:30 or 7:25. I get to school by car. I have 7 different classes. ELA or English Language Arts, History, PE, Web Design, TEAM, Math, and last but not least Science….. We have two breaks recess and lunch. Recess is at 10:02 and Lunch is at 11:50. During these breaks I usually just hang out with my friends.. After school I usually do my homework and hang out with my friends.. Thats how my regular school day goes……
If I could go anywhere around the world, I would go to………….
1) Sydney, Australia I would go their because I want to visit the beaches. The beaches crystal clear.
2) To get to Australia. I would have to go by plane (because you cant drive by car in the ocean it wouldn’t end well…) I would use the Virgin America and Qantas Airways. The flight will take 18 hours and 5 minutes. The ticket prices are about 3,000 for round trip.
4) The places I would go to 3 beaches the Palm Beach, Freshwater beach, and Newport each.
5) Today the weather is 79 degrees.
How was your Halloween? Humm lets see my Halloween was good. Me and few of my friends went trick-or-treating in Lake Shore. I got tons of candy about 10 lbs of it!! My favorite candy I got was a full size Twix, sadly we only got 1 full size.What is your favorite candy? My favorite candy would either have to Twix, Butterfinger, or Twizzlers. went for about two in a half hours!! What did you dress up as? For Halloween me and three other of my friends dressed up as nerds. We wore the typical suspenders glasses with the tape knee high socks and converse. My Halloween was AWESOME!! How was yours!
Halloween or also known as All Hallows Eve. In California, we call it Halloween (well probably more places). Halloween is a yearly celebration, people celebrate this holiday all over the world.. but they celebrate it in may different ways. In California we celebrate by trick or treating. Trick or treat is going around the streets and ring on the door bell and saying “trick or treat’ and they give us candy. Usually by the end of the night we have a pillow case full of all different kinds of candy chocolate, jolly ranchers, lolly pops, and soo much other kinds of candy. On Halloween you can go to school in your costume. How do u spend Halloween where u live???
In class, we watched a few documentaries about a 16 year old girl named Malala Yousafzai. Malala was a girl, who lived in Pakistan, she wanted girls to have the same right as boys do. Malala wanted girls to be able to go to school just like boys do. I know in America (because that’s where I live) it is mandatory not optional. But I don’t know about where u live. The word got out that Malala felt that way. One day while Malala was walking there were these people who came out and shot her and 2 of her friends. Malala was shot in the head,however she has survived. Today, Malala has written a book and is trying to get public school for her country. (she is kinda famous now)
