I have changed a LOT since I first started writing. I know love to write. But there has to be a how and a why, right? So today that is what I am talking about, but first I would like to start of saying thank you to all the people who came up with using computers for a change. Whether or not everybody likes it, a little bit of it is because of change. Also I want you to know that I don’t really have a preference between notebook or laptop, so it might sound like I like something better than the other, but it isn’t true.
Notebook is a very good method of writing. I love writing. One thing good about writing is spell check. Sometimes spell check can be good, but other time, no. Like, if you are spelling an Indian word, then some spell check will come up and bother you to change it. Notebook is also good because you can pour your feelings into your writing. Plus, even though for me, I am using laptops and I don’t really write much anywhere else but in my diary, I love writing because it helps me write my ideas, and ever since I started using computer for HW, I find that I go to my diary a lot more. But something on the bad side of writing is that there isn’t much audience to read your pieces of writing
Computer has also changed me a lot. I love using the computer because of the audience. Ok here is an example; so I have stage fright , and I barely can read to my big huge family. So instead, I write my story on the computer, and send it to friends and family even in India. Plus on blogs you have a whole audience, even strangers all around the world reading your blogs. And who knows? You could change thoughts and beliefs, or you can make them proud. I also enjoy using laptops because of pictures. Like, after I finish, there will probably be a picture at the end. I am very bad at art. So what I do is I get pictures from the internet. But you have to be specific.
That is all I have for you today. Bye!!!!
Hey everybody! How are you? Today I am going to talk to you about 8 of the planets. The first planet I want to write about today is Jupiter. It is the biggest planet in our solar system. It is 39,482 miles bigger than Earth. Jupiter is named after the king of Roman God. If you weigh 100 lbs. on earth, you would weigh 264 lbs. on Jupiter. Another fact in my research that I have found is that the mass of Jupiter is 70% of all the other planets in the solar system. You can fit 100 earths in Jupiter’s storm! Amazing! Now even though it isn’t visible, Jupiter has its own ring. The big red spot which is a storm, has been going on for over 300 years! Jupiter has over 60 known moons, even though most of the moons are small. One of Jupiter’s moons is called Europa, and that moon has potential for alien life. Aliens!
Next planet I am going to write about today is Uranus. It was found and made by a man named William Herschel. The atmosphere in Uranus is mostly composed of Hydrogen and Helium and it has a little amount of Methane. Uranus has two sets of rings. Nine inner rings, and 2 outer rings. A spacecraft has gone to Uranus once. The spacecraft was called Voyager 2. It is the seventh planet in our solar system. Plus it was named after Greek God Ouranos. The planet is blue-green in color, and tilted to the point, that it is on its side. This is all of the info that I have found on Uranus today.
Next planet I want to talk about is Mars. It is quite a good planet to study, especially now since we are trying to make houses and settle in there. Mars isn’t that much bigger than Earth, and it is a very close planet as well. Even though people are trying to settle down there, there is only 37% of gravity on Mars. Also on Mars is the tallest mountain in our solar system!!!!Something surprising is that there have only been 16 trips to mars! Did you know that there have been pieces of mars found earth? It takes its name from the Roman God of war. Its surface is made of iron oxide dust and rocks(reddish). In science class I also learned that the wind on mars is so windy that the wind could rip your skin off!
My fourth planet that I am going to talk about is Venus. Venus is the sister planet of Earth, and is almost the same size. But no one can live in Venus because of its heat and lava. There are 225 days in a year for Venus, compared to our 365 days in a year. And also because of its heat and color, it is the second brightest object in the night sky. Did you know that Venus is known as the Morning Star and Evening Star? It is also the hottest planet in our solar system. The Russians made the first attempt to go to Venus. But because of its thick atmosphere, it burst even before it could go into the clouds. Venus got its name from the Roman goddess of love.
Next planet to talk about is Mercury. Mercury’s year is about 88 days long, and is the smallest planet in our solar system. Mercury has wrinkles. The wrinkles are cooled and contracted, and that is what causes the them. It also has a molten core. Something also weird is that even though Mercury is closer to the sun than Venus, Venus is hotter than Mercury. And something else to think about is, do you think that the Moon has a lot of craters? Well Mercury is the planet with the most craters. Plus on top of that only two spacecrafts have ever visited Mercury. It is named after the the Roman God of messengers.
Of course, the beautifully ringed planet we have to talk about know is… Saturn!!! Saturn is able to withstand the rings because in reality, it isn’t really rings! Actually it is rocks that circulate all around Saturn, and because Saturn also moves, it looks like it is rings. The magnetic field around Saturn is very powerful. It is 578 times stronger than Earth’s magnetic field! Also Saturn is quite a lot bigger than Earth. It was found by Galileo in 1610. Saturn is named after the Roman god of agriculture. Saturn also has many moons. Saturn is NOT a peaceful planet, and when I say that, I mean the winds go up to 800 kph! Saturn is a gas giant.
Next is Neptune. It is 17.5 times the mass of earth, and also approximately 2 billion miles away. It took so long that it took Voyager 2, 12 yrs to get there. Neptune is blue because of the methane in it. Once Neptune had a huge dot just like Jupiter. So far that scientists knows, there is 19 moons for Neptune. Neptune also has a rocky core. Also Neptune is the stormiest planet! And Neptune is 30 times farther from the sun than Earth is. It is so far away, that one year for Neptune is 165 earth years! As you should know, Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea.
And last is our home planet, Earth. Earth is fascinating planet, because it is able to hold so many life forms, and that is what makes this planet special. In this planet is our home, our schools, our life, our friends, our family, and our shops! Without Earth, none this would be real. This blog wouldn’t be real, our friends, nothing! The speed of Earths revolution is getting slower and slower. But do not worry, it will be over 140 million years before a day becomes 25 hours in a day! As you should know, with all our pride and glory, and one point in time, earth was considered the center of the universe. Also Earth has quite a powerful magnetic field. Earth isn’t, after all, named after a god! And out of all of the other planets, earth has the greatest density.One thing I have a question about is why all the other moons have names, but ours doesn’t. Can you answer that and leave a comment below? Thanks, bye!
Today I am here to talk about one of my teachers, in my school, Eagle Ridge. She is very nice. She helps my English teacher, or substitutes teach. Today I am here to say congratulations to her. She is pregnant. Mrs. Pereira, if you are reading this, I just want to say that I hope your baby is wise and healthy. She is going to be gone until May, and if you do not know already, that is my birthday month! I made a powtoon video for you. Hope you enjoy!
This is my first Powtoon video on my book club book. Hope you enjoy!
My reading goals for this quarter is 19 books. I usually read books during the night, and I am a fast reader. I think that 19 books for me in one quarter isn’t that big of a deal. I love reading. It allows me to go into lots of other worlds, and it helps me to imagine what would happen if I was in a world like that. I love reading books especially since I can predict what will happen, and unlike the real world, I can imagine and read that scene happening over and over again. But reading is something I loved since 1st grade. Plus in my old reading I always got ahead because I was so fast, so I think that 19 books for about 2 months isn’t a big deal. See you later!
Yesterday, Marc Tyler Nobleman came over to school. I really liked it his show. He explained his research on 2 of his books. Boys of Steel and Bill the Boy Wonder. He talked about how he got all of the information, and I thought that it was quite bizarre. Especially since all three of the authors for Batman or Superman had died! That’s right I said three authors! For Superman, there were not one, but two people behind it all! I love superman. Superman, was the first superhero ever created! First superhero ever thought of! In Avengers, they say that Captain America is the first superhero, but that isn’t true. Actually Superman is. Superman is my family’s favorite superhero. The next superhero to talk about is Batman.You know when they say that Bob Kane was the man behind Batman? Well that isn’t true. Actually a man named Bill Finger made Batman. It was really sad to hear that Bill Finger didn’t get any of the credit, when he should’ve gotten most of the credit! This was actually probably the longest way to get the information ever. Marc Tyler Nobleman had to go to libraries and all other weird places to get to the information he had gotten. You HAVE to read this book. Both of the books. They are both really good. And you also have to see his speech… if someone has a recording of it.

I like to doodle. A lot. At first I thought that doodling was a waste of time, but then I tried visual note taking. In other words writing pictures that are drawn or taken while listening or reading a book. Once I tried it, I started liking it. Now, whenever I have the chance I actually like to doodle. I thought it was for babies, but even my teacher does it! I not only do visual note taking, I doodle all sorts of pictures, trying my best, whether or not it is good. Not everyone is a good drawer, but that isn’t either me or anyone should judge about. Many people would ask, how do you doodle? If you aren’t asking that question, then let me tell you this. Everybody doodles differently. Some people like to draw with pencils, other with markers, some like to use crayon pencils. I use crayon pencils. I put many small picture instead of one big picture. I like to use and look at my doodles later, so I try to make it as neat as possible. When I mess up, or think I cannot draw the picture, I try the new picture. I try my best on every single picture and usually I am happy with how it turns out. I just want to say that if you like to draw, you probably like to doodle, and doodle whenever, wherever, and in an situation. Doodle is something for everyone, any age, to do! Bye!
Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire is book that kids all ages should read. I love this book because it is very funny and it is mixed with adventure, mystery, and romance. But sometimes it kinda makes you sad. Here is a little summary of what it is;
A boy named Nigel transformed to a vampire. There is just one problem. He has no powers! 100 years, and he doesn’t have vampire beauty, nor does he have any strengths. In fact he is nothing like a vampire! He is always jealous of his mom, dad, and sister for getting powers. His parents say they are the only vampires left. When a new girl moves, and comes to his school, he is sure to get a her as his girlfriend. When they become friends, he tries to tell her, but can’t. Will he tell her that he likes her or will he back out? Read this book and find out!
I think this is a book everyone should read, because it is filled with fun, humor, a little romance in between, and has a little mystery too. If you like any of the above, read this book, and find out what happens! I do not have anything bad to say about it, and I hope that I can read more of Tim Collins’ books.
Hope you enjoy reading this book like I did! I give this book a 4 1/2 star rating;
