After being in middle school for the past two and a half years, I have noticed something. You’ve probably noticed it too.
My school isn’t like the stereotypical middle school which you see in movies and TV shows. There are cliques, or shall I say groups of friends with labels. I’m not sure whether this calls for other people, but I find it hard to make friends and work with several people from a certain clique all at once. They always ignore you, and share several inside jokes. But when it’s just you and one other person who doesn’t have their friends with them, it runs really smooth. You act as you were best friends.
I think that we all do this unknowingly. That’s why I have started to make more of an effort to include everyone in group work and other activities.
Last week, I spotted a pretty rose in my garden. I plucked it, and brought it inside. I thought it would look cool if I placed it on a mirror, and it looks like I was right!
This is the Photo-shopped version.
This morning, my mom was using eggs to prepare a dish, so I asked if I could have the egg shells. The reason for this was that I had a photography idea.
This is my picture:
It’s kind of cute.
As a bonus, I took a picture of the almost-full moon. I believe the forecast said it was going to be very cloudy on the night of the full moon, so I decided to photograph it the day before.
Unfortunately, my camera isn’t too good at photographing night time pictures, so it came out grainy.
A few days ago, I went for a walk in the prairie. It was in the evening, at the time of the sunset. I took this great picture during the walk.
Yesterday evening I visited the arboretum.
As I was trying to photograph a tree, while I was trying to get the lens to focus, I saw a bokeh-ish picture through the camera. So, I snapped a picture.
It’s not that good, but this count’s as bokeh, right?
Today I had an idea to put food coloring in a wine glass filled with water and photograph it immediately as it spreads to the rest of the water.
BTW, I have decided to stop saying “hello everyone,” at the beginning of every post. It seemed a little childish, so I’ve decided to just start writing from the very start of the post. I also am just going to type in my signature at the end of each post for the same reason.
Anyways, the pictures turned out really nice, and the quality and resolution was pretty good.
A few days ago, I was really hyper on a Friday night, so I wrote a poem. It took some thinking, so it reduced my energy level a bit. 🙂
I called it “Magic Touch”. I wish it weren’t as cheesy-sounding, but I can’t really think of any other name. Any suggestions? If so, please comment!
(The “~” signals a new stanza.
Reach for the sky,
Through the clouds,
And touch the moon
Hiding away, shy
Make the moon glow,
Brighter than before
Whiter than fresh snow
Burning to the earth’s core.
Everything you touch,
Creates a strong love,
Everything you do,
Makes a door to heaven.
Grab the beautiful stars,
Sparkling light years away
Remove the old scars
Leaving but an ocean spray
Seeming like magic,
Within a single, tiny moment,
Make all events tragic
Disappear as if they were dreamt.
Yesterday I got an idea to sew a Nyan Cat Stuffie. I finished it this afternoon, and decided to share it on this blog.
I know this isn’t the quality of photography I usually display since it’s taken by an iPad. But it works.
It is day thirteen of the post a day challenge. I can’t believe I skipped six days in a row…That makes ten strikes.
I visited my grandfather’s farm a day after one of the cows had given birth to a calf. I got to pet it, and take some pictures of it. For privacy reasons, I will not share the picture of the calf with me in it.
It has white patches around it’s eyes. 😀
As a little bonus,
I took a picture of a nice little stray dog which was in the farm.
I did not post yesterday, but it is still day 6 of the post a day challenge. Strike 1…
Yesterday I climbed the Revanasiddeshvara mountain in India. There is a temple on the top. On the way up, I took pictures of the mountains and rock formations around the mountain.
As a little bonus, I took a picture of a few animals.
