Daily Habit Reflection: Plank!

In my Language Arts class, we have daily habits. Daily habits are things that you do every day like push-ups or sit-ups or drawing or anything! For our first daily habit all of my class did planks. We all started at 30 seconds a day and every week we would go up 15 seconds. 

So after 12 weeks we got to three minutes a day! On the first day of three minutes we were allowed to go as long as we wanted. I had barely done seven minutes last summer but all of that repetition really helped and strengthened my core and mind so I got 21 minutes!! In fact, I could have gone longer but X period (My school’s study hall) was ending so I decided to do a palindrome of 21:12 minutes!

Now we are allowed to choose any habit we want and I decided to do push-ups and sit-ups but then realized if I wanted to do one hour of plank I would need to keep doing plank so I changed my habit. Right now I am doing four minutes but will be going up by 30 seconds each week.

 

Window or Mirror?

          A bit ago, I finished reading Allies by Alan Gratz. Allies is a historical fiction book about D-Day that uses a variety of different personalities of made up characters to tell the story of D-Day from all perspectives. There are two classifications to books, one is a mirror and the other a window. A mirror book is a book that has many things you relate to like your personality, your religion, where you were born, etc. A window is a book that doesn’t have any of the traits like religion or personality. I have always thought this book was a window from the second I started reading it because there are many different characters and none of them live in the modern world with phones and computers. Instead, they use what they have because it is 1944. Plus, I don’t live in any of the places they live and I don’t have any religions that any of the characters have. In conclusion, I still believe this book is a window and feel that this book wouldn’t relate to many people.

What’s in my Backpack?

         Finding Someplace is a book about a girl named Reesie who lives in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina. In the book, Reesie brought a backpack with a sketchbook, pencils, a picture of  Miss Martine, her old neighbor, and Louis Armstrong, and her important papers when trying to run from the flood and get on top of Miss Martine’s rooftop. Soon they get rescued and are dropped off at a stadium where they can stay. During that time Reesie gets mugged and loses her backpack, then finds her dad. Soon everyone is able to evacuate from the wreckage of New Orleans and go somewhere safe.

          If I were in Finding Someplace I would also bring a backpack to survive. During the story Finding Someplace, Andrè, the brother of Orlando who is Reesie’s crush, brought a crowbar so that is why I brought a Swiss Army Knife in my backpack because it is very useful in many different situations. I also brought a birth certificate in my backpack. The first thing I brought was food because if I didn’t have any food then you would starve to death. Then I brought my wallet in my backpack because then I could buy essential resources. I  also brought 5-Hour Energy in my backpack because I will need energy to stay awake. I brought a power brick in my backpack so I could charge up my phone. Just like the Swiss Army knife I brought, I added a phone in my backpack because it is very useful in many situations such as contacting people and passing time. I brought a flare kit in my backpack so that if I am in dire need of getting noticed then I can set it off and someone will hopefully come. Then I would bring a survival knife in my backpack so I would not die if someone attacks me or mugs me. After that, I brought my birth certificate in my backpack so I would not be outlawed when everything becomes normal again. Reesie made meat pies as a snack/dinner so for a snack I brought Takis in my backpack and it is also something to give people who need food. Obviously I brought water in my backpack so I can survive and not die of dehydration. Then I brought earphones in my backpack so I can listen to music. The last thing I brought was a solar powered battery in my backpack so if my portable charger runs out of juice then I can use that. In conclusion, I believe that I would survive the storm and everything would be better for me and Reesie.

 

Minecraft With My Brother

Yesterday, my brother and I started a Minecraft survival world, and it has been really fun!

We started from scratch with no cheats and no texture pack or mod and have just started to live the Minecraft dream.

We decided to do a seed that a YouTuber named PythonMC  used for a flower forest, then we got some wood and started getting the basic stuff.

When I was getting wood I almost died when a CREEPER came up behind me and blew me up so I only had 2 full hearts!

Then when I was finishing up gathering wood another CREEPER came up behind me and blew me up I had died.  But in Minecraft, you always re-spawn and we made a setting so we wouldn’t lose our stuff.

After that, we started to make our houses, and I made one like PythonMC made but Jack has not finished yet.

Mine is only wood and  is a classic Minecraft house with stairs on the outside.  On the inside, there is a bed, a crafting table, a furnace, and some chests.

Jack’s house so far is a wooden box with stairs going up each side on top of cobblestone. We both have double doors, too.

I am thinking about adding a little side area though so I’m not finished.

The last thing that we made is a little underground area that connects our houses.

Online playdates

I’ve gotten bored over the past few days because of being quarintined so I helped my mom start doing online play dates.

Basicly you get someones phone number or email and call the on facetime  to talk, play, and introduce to pets/siblings.

I personaly love playing magic with other people so if you like magic then you might want to try it. It’s super fun!

Also most kids want to get in touch with their friends so they’ll almost always say yes.

Try it it’s super fun!

 

 

The Grand Canyon

Over spring break I went to Arizona and went to…(drum roll please) THE GRAND CANYON!!!!

When we were there we did a lot of things. First we went to a place we could eat, then we got our first looks. It was AMAZING! I thought it was gonna be a lot smaller and had more super high places but no.

There was lots of erosion and it was just a circle and in the middle was the Grand Canyon part of it.

Then once we finished we went to walk. The walk was called the rim trail and we started walking. After about a fourth of a mile or so we found this thing called the time hike.

Then we started to walk along that and we walked for a mile more or less and then we found a sign that said Congrats You Hiked 1 Billion Years, so we looked down at our feet and there was a metal plate and it said 1,000,000,000 years.

Then after another mile we found a village and another metal plate that said 2,000,000,000 years!

Then we got some water did some shopping and hopped back onto the bus. Then we got to the parking lot and drove home (the hotel).

 

 

star wars the fallen order 2

 

latly I have been playing alot of the star wars game i told you about it is so so so fun.

I have been trying to kill the bad guy right now and she has 10X as much health that I do and has a lightsaber and the force.

she can also run at literly THE SPEED OF LIGHT so shes super super super super hard and I haven’t got even close to beating her.

but after looking for a while I think that I finally found a way to beat her and that is byeing the double sided lightsaber which so so so so so so many people recomed byeing and apperently each strike does 2X as much damage so that is SUPER SUPER good.

here are the bosses you have to defeat (note: i am on the second sister)

My favorite magic cards!

1. Ghalta Primal Hunger. This is definitely my favorite card it is a 12/12  for 12 mana with trample and this card costs X less to cast where X is all your creatures power. and it is super super super super super rare but it always comes in Game Night so if you want him the buy game night.

2. Drakuseth Maw of Flames. He is godly he is a 7/7 with flying and whenever he attacks he deals 4 damage to up to one target creature and 3 damage to up to two target creatures.

My new video game

Over Christmas I got a game called Star Wars The Fallen Order.

It is a sandbox game, (a video game that you can play searching around the map or you do challenges and quests).

You start of as a kid in a ship place then you reveal that you have the force and that you have a lightsaber.

After that you battle the bad guy and you have to jump to get to an escape  ship and you fly to this place were you find this droid named BD-1.

Then you go to a temple and learn to wall run then you use that to go to a vault and then you get a message and you have to go back to the ship.

Then you fly to another planet and there you have new monsters and STORMTROOPERS then you have to stop the emperor and stay alive.

Then I haven’t gone any farther.

 

This will be back in my next blog (hopefully)……
