Blog Challenge Week 8

When going to a school there are always going to be after school activities (ASA) such as sports, clubs, and student council, but there might not be out of school groups like girl/boy scouts or something else for students/teenagers. Even if there you’re not a social person anywhere you go you’ll probably be in a group or sport at least once.

Before I came to my school, The International School of Dakar (ISD), I had only been in one type of community group thing and it was girl scouts when I lived in Mauritania. when I moved I didn’t do much because I either wasn’t motivated or I wasn’t good enough to get into the group. An example of that would be when I lived in Louisiana and I tried out for the Basketball team at my school.

Now that I’m at ISD on the other hand, since it is a private school with very few students, you can join any sport without being cut from the team and you can join any club. ever since I got here all I have been doing is activity after activity so I basically give myself almost no free time so I am always studying or doing a sport. This year I have been all the sports and also green team which is a group of students that do gardening and recycling at the school and around town.

Another cool thing about going to my school is there are a lot of supplies for sports and science clubs and many of the teachers are willing to supervise these ASA’s. Also there are so many different clubs and also chances to get volunteer hours at my school such as: swimming, volleyball, softball, basketball, track and field, soccer, tennis, green team, student council, peace team, open science lab, girls club (middle school), BIG (big brother/sister), and I am probably leaving out a lot of others but I just can’t think of them right now.

Since there isn’t much else to do outside of school unless it’s surfing most people at school do at least one ASA just to say that they don’t have to much free time. Me personally do a lot of sports and clubs because if I have to much free time I end up procrastinating to much and don’t get any work done at the end of the day, but with the activities I have so little time that I don’t really think about procrastinating much.

That is basically what type of activities are like for me and how they affect most people.


SCHOOL: Student Blog Challenge Week 7

Hello fellow readers/writers this week’s student blog challenge topic was school. The topic was school because there are so many students participating from different countries and school in the world and they are all very much different from their scheduled to the law out of the school. Since there are so many things to talk about when it comes to my school I have decided to talk about the time table is like compared to my last school which was in Louisiana.

At my old school the time table was pretty basic since I had all my classes every day at the same time in the same class room. It was always routine, and if you are like most students, you had to make sure not to procrastinate on homework if you had the class before lunch (don’t worry it’s just a joke).

At my new school instead of having all our classes each day we have a schedule that splits our even periods/ classes and our odd ones up so we only have four classes each day, two days to do homework, and eighty minute classes. Also our school days usually go from eight thirty am to three twenty pm. Sadly the confusion doesn’t stop their. Instead of just having each other day start in order on odd days (1,3,5,7) and even days (2,4,6,8), it had to be even more complicated. So since their are eight periods/classes, there are eight rotation days. This basically means for each rotation day would start with the same class period as the rotation day number. for example on a day five the order of you classes would be period 5, period 7, period 1, and period 3. So it still relatively goes in order.

I will admit that yes this is extremely confusing at the beginning of the year, especially if you’re new, but after the first few weeks it gets a lot easier to remember. Also if you’re someone who always falls asleep in the last class of the day you’re not falling asleep in the same class which means you don’t miss everything going on.

So this is my school’s incredibly confusing but somehow efficient times tables.

So Close, so close

I just realized that when I first tried to copy a picture of myself it was just going to be the a contour line drawing (the outlines) but then I saw it today and just thought “why not” and added a bunch of shading. What I didn’t relies though was how much it looked like Pink instead of me. So close, so close.

Darn it.

Student Blog Challenge Week 6

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already week six of the student blog challenge. Well since it is for this weeks blog challenge I decided to do game two.

The three blog posts I read were Nichole’s Blog post on JagArts, Keller’s About me ABCs, and a book review on Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. I particularly like the book review because I am practically in love with Rick Riordan’s books.

Since in game two we were supposed to leave comments here is what I basically commented on each of their posts:

Nichole’s Blog:

I just said how I was also their accept I was showing my mom my art.

Keller’s ABCs:

I told here how I am on the basket ball team and liked her about me post.

The book review:

I just talked about how completely awesome the first and second series are that Rick Riordan wrote.

That is all for the week six blog challenge. I hope all you guys are having a great day. Bye


Acrylic (Genius hour 2)

Since for the week five blog challenge we got to chose my topic I decided why not tell you guys about my second Genius Hour project.

For my second Genius Hour I am so exited because I chose to do it on Renaissance Artists and Acrylic paint. What I am going to be doing is making several acrylic paintings to improve my painting technique but the ketch is I am going to be getting inspiration from famous artists. I’ll try and post more regularly when I start painting and I’ll probably post some of my art.

Hope you guys keep reading because I should be posting a lot more.

Have a nice day
