The best part of my trip is that I got to get one of the Iowa State Basketball players autograph and his name was Nick- Weiler Babb. The thing that surprised me was that I actually got to go the the Iowa State University and it was my first time. That was my first time to so it was really exciting. I would loveeee to go to the University because it would make me feel happy, I would be proud of myself if I succeeded into it. Some people probably just think when you graduate from High School you can got anywhere you want, but it doesn’t work like that. It takes steps into going somewhere you want, so don’t think that people, and it all depends on your attitude, and your grades. I saw a lot of thing when I went to Iowa State, I saw there Library, the engineering hall where you got to school for engineering, and we saw a little playground for students who would want to be teachers, they would have to do that. To go into the Iowa State University, it depends on you RAI score which your Regent Admission Index. There is actually a lot of classes they would offer if you look on this website http://catalog.iastate.edu/azcourses/. Here is a website for if you want to look at some pictures https://goo.gl/OdU4Pr
I decided to focus on music because is actually a really good thing you can do. You never know, maybe you would want to do music when you get older. Music is actually fun because you can take your time and get to know how to take your time when you are doing it. Music is actually important because like if you get like a record deal and you sign like a gunky contract then you will have to pay a lot of money. I know one artist that is really in debt for all the stuff he did. That is why you have to take your time on what you are doing. My goals for this project is to to one day learn from my project to maybe one day make music one my own. I have other goals but I really don’t want to same them right now. I’m going to measure my goals by concentrating one what I do best!!!
My spring break was really fun. We seen a lot of things that I haven’t seen before. I was actually shock because I figured that I wouldn’t get to see them. The first day we got there we went to the capital, which was really big. All of us went through security so we could go in because you can’t go in until you’ve went through security. After we went through the capital to visit there stuff we went to one of there museum’s where like you take pictures with like fake celebrities, but it was really fun. The next day we saw my favorite place that I’ve always wanted to see was THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!! We couldn’t go inside because if you wanted to go in they would need your social security and check all your information about you. After we went to the white house we went to some of there gift shops, then we went to go eat lunch. Then we went to go visit some more stuff until we had dinner that evening, then we went to the hotel. That morning, we had breakfast which was kind of nasty, I had some cereal though that wasn’t to bad. Mostly that day we went to museums and memorials, we had walked all day and OMG my feet where hurting so bad. On the corners/sides they where like like food from there food trucks and clothes and some of there stuff the have that represents D.C. I have a lot of more information to tell you guys but I think I gonna have a pause. Hope you guys visit there one day!!!!!!!
Nature is the main thing why we are living because it produces plants, and we need plants for oxygen. If it wasn’t for oxygen then we wouldn’t be able to breath. Nature is the most beautiful thing on earth because it shows rainbows and a beautiful sky blue clouds. Sometimes, if you go outside on a warm tropical day it feels refreshing, like you feel like you can just be free from anything. Did you know that plants on the surface of the earth has existed for around 400 million years. More than half of plant species are native to just one country. Can you even imagine how people out of the country are suffering to find plants. Plants is one of our resources that we use to live. Did you know 90 percent of the foods humans eat come from just 30 plants. There are over 23,000 different kinds of trees in the world. One large tree can lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in a day. Over 5,000 products are made from trees.
Fruits and vegetables also come from trees to if you guys didn’t know that. So, that’s really where we eat are apples and bananas. A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. Trees sometimes make us feel healthy because think about it, we eat fruits and vegetables from a tree. One large tree can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to four people. Most of the people in our country are living longer than the expected because they have been eating healthy and are environment can sometimes help us because of the air in the sky(clouds). Our nature is the most beautiful thing on earth because if it wasn’t for nature we wouldn’t have no sun no heat or nothing we would just be miserable.
Popular foods in my country is fried chicken, homemade macaroni & cheese, and pulled pork. These are the most popular foods because people eat them all the time. I really don’t have a favorite food but, I do like Lasangua. Another food that I like is Stuffed Peppers, its like you feel a pepper with rice, but you can put it a different type of rice in it. In our country some people are very picky about what they eat, but some people need to realize if it wasn’t for food we would be gone. This is why I’m so happy I get food, I don’t care what it is I’m going to eat it if its nasty. Popular foods in our country are pretty good except for like certain things. A lot of people like pizza because it popular and it tastes so good, there are different kinds like sausage, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon. Those are almost the three popular kinds of pizza. People also eat Ramen Noodles because they either like the flavor of it or the taste and I think people like the taste better. A lot of people in this country like to always try different foods, but if don’t see somebody else try something because you think its nasty, you never know until you get the taste of it.
On Halloween night I usually don’t do anything but like sit at home and watch scary movies. On Halloween my cousin had passed away in 2013 and that’s why I really don’t do anything because every since that day things haven’t been the same for me. Sometimes if I feel like it I’ll go to my aunties house and help her hand out candy. But if I feel like it I will call my friends and ask them if they want to hang out. But that is my little poem of how I celebrate Halloween.
I’m writing about my cousin Laquesha Naylor that passed away a year ago on September 2, 2014. Before she had passed she use to always stay at my house and come to see what we will be doing. My grandma was like a mother to her because she had raised her all her life, like she was for since day 1.
One day Laqueshas mom (Ann) called my grandma(Merdine) and had told her that Laquesha was in the hospital in Iowa City, so we had to go down to spend time with her because she wanted somebody to be there for her. We had to stay in the hotel called The Best Western and I’m telling you I did not like that hotel like seriously, the most weird hotel ever.
The next day we went back to the hospital and spended some more time with until we had to hit the highway. The doctor had came in and talk to us to see why she needed to come back down there and you know like sometimes you don’t like really talking about because it makes you sad, but I will tell you this they said that she had 3 months to live, and that really like shocked me and I was like, “What?”. We had order some food and kind talk about how she was doing and how she feels. That night we had left Iowa City, but her dad was down there so she wasn’t alone . Laquesha was a very special young lady and always will be for the rest of my life, she used to always give rides for people and that kind of stuff. That’s my story of Laquesha Naylor, Rest In Heaven.
If you have ever had somebody talk to you any kind of way or if you been bullied or tease you don’t ever just stand there. When you are talking to a friend and somebody just comes up to you and talk mess to you, you have to speak up for yourself don’t just pretend its going to be OK when its really not. I see kids all the time down the street by my house getting bullied and picked on. But then if someone is picking on you, and you was just picking on them that person is going to get mad because they feel like they don’t need to be messed with. So, if you ever feel like picking at someone don’t do it because there gonna get right back at you and it ain’t gonna be pretty. That’s why I learned my lesson not to pick on people(sometimes I can, but just playing) because its not nice, you don’t want somebody to pick on you, and get you all mad and crazy and you just feel like you want to fight. I learned at my old school “Cooper Elementary” we made a pledge that says,” I will not use my hands or my words for hurting myself or others” and that’s true don”t hurt yourself because if you really talk about someone your just hurting yourself, your not hurting them your hurting YOU. Remember this my friends, don’t let some get to you or hurt you because really there hurting themselves remember that. Another thing I wanted to talk about to always share don’t be selfish because someone gonna come up to you and ask you for something, and you don’t share… there gonna be mad so remember always share don’t be selfish because your not going to get anything in life
Sometimes I´m different when it comes to certain things, like if i post something on Facebook than I´m like all shy. But in school I just like let it out, how I feel, I say what I think I need to say. Like if I´m online and i posted something like, ¨ Happy Birthday To Me¨ and everybodyyyyyyy says, ¨Happy Birthday¨. I always say thank you, but i like get the tickles like a kind of laugh to the side. When I´m offline i just say anything like I´m not scared to speak my mind.
