The Shark

Boom I get up on my board as I feel the smooth silky water

I am confused as I hear people scream and shout

Then it happens, I feel a slight poke in my leg…

Pow… I feel the shredding in my leg, a shark, it drags me under as I watch in pain

I see my blood color the water red…

This is it, I think, shhhhh go to sleep

shhhhhh

Go… to… Sleep….

  • Which post received the most comments? Why do you think that happened?
  • Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?
  • Did you change blog themes at all and why?
  • How many widgets do you have? Do you think this is too many or not enough?
  • How many overseas students do you have on your blogroll?
  • Which web tools did you use to show creativity on your blog?

 

  • 10 this challenge
  • all 10 were set by the challenge, they did come from the heart though
  • No comments in this challenge… 🙁 hahaha
  • No comments…
  • Probably my latest post, the baseball poem because it really came from the heart
  • No, I think that the regular blog theme seems okay
  • I have 2 widgets, no I don’t think that’s enough
  • 1 from Austrailia
  • None :/

Letter Poem

Dear Baseball,

Thank you for making me smile

as I run and run catching you for miles

People try to separate us, telling us we are no good,

But we block them out, and you know that we should

for every ball that I catch

for every shout I receive

for every tear I shed over you

not because I’m sad… But because I love you

and for every ball that I miss for every pitch that I watch

every strike I didn’t touch…

I will love you

The Great White

Sharks, these predators of the sea are not just vicious, they are known to have been man eaters, mostly the scapegoat of this species is the Great White. But if you actually do research, most sharks do not like the taste of human flesh and they mostly mistake humans for their prey such as the seal (human on surf board). Very very very few sharks like the taste of human flesh or actually attack humans. The movie jaws is actually based on a true story, although it wasn’t a great white, it was a bull shark. The shark that can go both in fresh and salt water, it was believed to have killed 13 people. That’s what I call a man-eater. Well…. Besides Jeffrey Dahmer and Hannibal Lecter….

There is 1 species that is most likely extinct though. The megaladon, the biggest shark in human history. In the Jurassic age was said to be able to eat a T-Rex. Whole. Although there are videos of this mass creature, they are probably fake. Did you know that sharks teeth are actually part of their scales? That is why they can infinitely grow them back. Also a sharks tooth shaped scales called denticles allows the shark to swim swiftly though water while not collecting any barnacles or algae.

Although sharks are thought of to be vicious… They are actually pretty passive. Maybe you should do research on your favorite animal. What is your favorite animal? Thanks for reading. Bye!

 

 

Hawaiian Paradise

My favorite place to be on vacation is Hawaii. Beautiful beaches, traditional food, and very fun gatherings. If I could live there for a while I probably would. I’ve lived there before and it was amazing… but now lets get into why.

The first thing I would want to do was go to the beach, and probably surf. Next would probably be to go to a Luau which is a traditional party in Hawaii. There is pig roasting, fire dancing, and other traditional dancing. It’s very fun! Some times I wish I could go back there but eh. It’s fine.

Where would you go to live? What is your favorite part of the world? Answer these questions yourself! Thanks for reading… Bye!!!

Stranded Island w/ Family

If my family and I were stranded on an island the thing that would be most entertaining would probably be competition. Reason being because I have a very athletic family, and we would all enjoy a little competition. We would have games such as running, climbing, throwing, etc. I don’t know about you guys but I personally love to build things, houses, foundation, etc. So probably a lot of building and exploring on the island as well. How would you and your family entertain themselves if you were on an island, what would you bring? I’ll leave you to answer those question.

Soccer Is A Part of My Soul

If you don’t know me in real life, I love soccer. I love to play by myself or with my friends, without cleats or with, in rain or shine, no goal or goal. I will play soccer almost everyday, I’m pretty sure I’m obsessed with it. I havn’t been playing it for that long though… My best friend Nainoa actually got me into soccer and I have been hooked on it ever since. There is so much more for me to learn but I will get into what I do later.

Christiano Ronaldo is my idol. I thrive to be as good as him, Soccer is very unique… You can come up with many different moves, jukes, etc. My favorite juke is the nutmeg or rainbow. A nutmeg is where you pass the ball in between someones legs, get it back, and keep running. The rainbow is where you have the ball behind you with a defender in front of you and get the ball over both of your heads and retrieve it back.

Sometimes I wonder where I will go in soccer. If I will make it to pro or not. But really, I just play it to have fun… What do you do that you love? Where do you plan to be in the future?? To find out more about soccer or futbol go to www.fifa.com!

Week 4 Blog – Helping The Poor

When I was in 2nd grade I helped prepare and set up food for the homeless on thanksgiving. This now thinking back on it was an eye opener. I got to see how many people don’t get to live lives with a house, with a companion, with someone to love. It kind of makes me happy that I helped these people but also sad because their lives may be destroyed. To the people that have bad lives, look upon the things that are good in life…
