Dang... it's already the second quarter. Already time for me to do my second blog. My first one, personally I didn't think was that great. I don't find myself very creative at all, so basically for my first one I just took it as kind of a joke, typed something or added a picture that made me laugh. Apparently it worked, because I received a 98%. Oh yeah (: Obviously I am overly happy about my grade since i expected to receive a C or below. I guess making the blog seem like a joke and funny made it easier to read and reflected my personality. My blog was well organized according to my rubric, OCD helps there... just kidding... I'm only OCD about little things (: Also my rubric said my pictures and personal reflections explained my book well, yay! gold star for me (: Same for the classical music, I wasn't really sure how to explain my book through music, especially classical which is the only music I hate with a burning passion... my apologies to the composers. I just listened to random pieces which made my head hurt... then one sounded somewhat cool so i choose it and connected it to my book the best I could. The vlog... oh boy, that was awkward... I had to redo that so many times. I actually liked doing the vlog though, it was one of my favorite prompts. When we did the comments on our classmates blogs, i thought was particularly easy, because we could just comment on our friends blog and joke with them and tell them what was good and bad about their blogs. If we have to do that with people we don't know... I'll feel all bad about critiquing theirs and then they might get mad at me... ): ha ha. So to wrap up this long paragraph... sorry if I am boring you by the way. The last comments I got on my rubric were about grammatical errors. (sad face) If it was because of the I's not being capitalized... no offense to the makers of blogspot... but in Microsoft Word they automatically capitalize them for you... this site doesn't... not cool. It's all okay though.. like I said I got a 98% (: So I guess one of my goals for this second quarter blog is to capitalize my I's. Am I doing good so far? (:
I apologize for that really long paragraph... I was feeling really talkative (: After the first quarter blog, I think I'm getting quite used to doing this whole blogging deal. I know that some people complained about blogging and there were time where I got annoyed with some of the prompts. Honestly, I think this is WAY better than writing boring analysis papers. It changes things up a little bit, and it makes English class more interesting. So I don't know why people complain so much because they hate writing long 5 paragraph essays. I'm glad that this quarter we have more freedom to what our prompts will be. That way I can attempt to be creative since I'm lacking in that category... But again, I actually do like blogging, I don't have a problem with it, because it's nothing that's impossible to do, I finished all my prompts from last quarter no matter what they were, so I know that I can do it.
The book I'm reading for my second quarter blog is called Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King. It's about this girl named.. well Vera. Her best friend had just died but it hasn't flat out said how yet. It hints some reasons that led up to it. It switches points of view a lot so it's kind of confusing but so far I really like it. We have way more freedom this quarter with our blog like I had already said. I'm not really sure what to tell you to expect because I myself am not sure yet even though I'm the one who has to create my prompt. I can assure you there will be no classical music, animotos, or 189795904363653975 links. I hated those prompts with a strong passion. ha ha. There could be a vlog maybe most of them will be vlogs. There might also be a musical connection, but it will be to the kind of music I actually like to listen to and I won't slowly die trying to pick a song...But other than that, I guess you will just have to wait and see what my next blog has in store so....enjoy (:.... and if you don't enjoy... then... get off my blog.. jerk..
