Since it has been a full year since I got my first Clustrmap, it has been reset. Thank you to the 478 people that have visited my blog over time.
The slow, tedious school days drag by, and only a week and a half after returning from winter break and students are waiting for their next vacation. Sigh. . .
The picture is worth a thousand words
We only know so few
This is called a PicLit, or a Picture to inspire Literature. From piclits.com, my Lang. Arts teacher introduced it to us yesterday and I have written several already. 🙂 It’s where hundreds of pictures inspire poetry or meaning or just plain fun.
October 31:Hallowe’en, All Hallow’s eve, Night of the Great Pumpkin, whatever you call it, last night was Halloween! I don’t really ‘celebrate’ Oct.31 by going all crazy costumes or tricking treaters, but the candy is nice too. My favorite part of Halloween is watching ‘It’s the Great Pumkin, Charlie Brown!” It’s an old movie and I have seen it about ten times, but I love it anyway. Happy November!
On Friday I went on a 2day reatreat with my church that was all about peace. We rocked out in singing and played outside games like Bonkers, Sardines, and Apple Slingshot Dodgeball. Everyone gathered round the campfire and ended up playing board games till midnight. On the second day I also went hiking and tie-dyed. It was awesome and I feel totally refreshed!
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera when most of the games were going on, but here are some pictures! (I am not the world’s greatest photographer. . .)
The bus we rode on
Okay, so apparently not many people pay attention to my surveys 🙁 but I would like to say that from now on they will be on my blogroll! (see right) I will also put my ClustrMaps back on the widgets(see side)
I heard this story and it is really amazing:
A few years back in the Winter Olympics, a skiier named Pikabu won the gold medal. She also recieved a cash prize, which she donated to her hometown’s hospital. The hospital had finally raised enough to build an Intensive Care Unit; they called it PIKABU ICU.
