Kind of Summarizing Some of My Blog Posts This Year! The Biggest Post I Have Done All Year!!!

This is going to be the biggest, coolest, and best blog post I’ve done all year.  It’s sad that this could be my last blog post.  Everybody has had fun making posts and reading them. I hope that this post is the best post ever!

     Florida Gator Post

This was my first ever blog post on my blog.  It was very short in fact. I showed how I was the biggest Florida Gator fan ever. Even though we didn’t beat Tennessee in football, we still won the SEC East Division. It’s awesome that the Gators managed to bounce back after having a horrible season last year.

Olympics 2024 Post

I have big news. The two cities that will host the 2024 Summer Olympics are Paris or L.A. For the first time since 2002, a city in U.S.A could host the Olympics. Because of the great breeze and good weather, L.A could be a great place for the Olympics.

7/11 Post

 Being honest, I haven’t really been to 7/11 since September. This year on July eleventh, I advise that everyone should go 7/11 to get a free slurped. Slurpee’s are great for the summer because it will be scorching. This was one of my wackier and random posts that I really liked.  My favorite flavor of slurpee is blue raspberry.

Weeks  2, 3, and 4 NFL Prediction Posts

 These were meant to be a series, but I got bored from the originality. So I stopped the series. My record was very shabby and grotesque to look at, so I won’t tell you my record. Boy, were the Browns a disappointment this season.     

  How to Solve a Rubik’s Cube Post

I was not that  good at solving a Rubik’s Cube before watching this video. I didn’t know there was a method to its madness. Thankfully I have solved it at least twice in my life. By the way, ( if your read this post) I didn’t get a new cube,

Trumpet Post 

I have outlasted my trumpet buddies  again to become  1st Chair for the 4th time this year. A week ago, we went to San Antonio to compete in a band contest. We won the best band for our level group. Because the trumpet is super awesome(Everybody knows that), we always get some sort of melody in a song. We are also playing Beauty and the Beast. We have melody in the Gaston and Be Our Guest part.

Schlitterbahn Excitement Post

I went to Schlitterbahn last year, and I’m really hyped to go to it in the summer. I like the old park at the New Branfels site because it has more rides to do and more fun. The Falls, the longest lazy river ride at Schlitterbahn, is my favorite ride at the new park. Splashing, swimming, and relaxing are all the things I’m going to do at Schlitterbahn. I think that I’ve been to Schlitterbahn eight or nine times in my life.

For the Love of the Game Post

Most people know I love baseball. The sweet sound when you hit the sweet spot, diving for a baseball and getting your pants dirty, the sound of a glove when you catch a baseball. So far,  I’ve won first place for two tournaments and second place for two tournaments. We get rings if we get first or second in a tournament. My favorite time playing baseball was in Cooperstown, New York. That’s where the Hall of Fame is located. We had a four day tournament there and lost on the fourth day. Losing so early was devastating,  but sometimes you have to deal with it. Some day, I will make it to the Hall of Fame.

E NEEds Equality Post

Hold on to your sEatbElts , it’s going to bE a bumpy ridE. ( You should probably click thE hypErlink if you want to know why I’m capitalizing EvEry E.) BEcausE EvErybody in thE world rEad my post, thEy stoppEd all thE hating on E and gavE it Equality. In that post I complainEd about no Equality, in this post I’ll dEmonstratE how to givE it Equality. First of all, you havE to say nicE things to E. Saying you look ExcEllEnt is fabulous. SEcond of all, you’ll nEEd to usE words that start and End with E. End and introducE arE finE Examples of that. SEE what I did thErE. Lastly, sprEd awarEnEss of how E nEEds to becomE a primary lEttEr.

What Came First, the Chicken or the Egg? Post

My opinion has not changed. The egg came first. How so? It’s simple science and crazy creativity. The egg came first because the first chickens were dinosaurs. They were mutation which evolved over time. The chicken, which was a mutation, hatched out of an egg first proving that the egg came first. Even though scientists have  some theory’s, I’m still backing my opinion and I won’t let up. I even hyperlinked the egg just to show that it came first! Can a 13 year old teenager be smarter than scientists?  I don’t know. Because of mutations and evolutions from dinosaurs, the egg came before the chicken.

Pet Peeves

Pet peeves are honestly the worst. Nobody likes them. They are the things that make you cringe, itch, and make you want to put yourself in a ball and cry. In that post I talked about how someone else waking me up is my biggest pet peeve. I hate it especially when I go to sleep late and have to wake up early. My morning is ruined when someone wakes me up. It makes me so tense and grumpy when this happens.

This was obviously the biggest post Ive ever done. I have really enjoyed writing all the blog posts I’ve done. Whether my posts have been random, sad, about baseball, has a serious tone, or are just plain weird, and I have been having a blast doing them. From September to May we have been writing blog posts. Being honest, my favorite post was probably the E NEEds Equality post because of its wackiness and randomness.  I also liked how my voice was expressed when I capitalized every E. I hoped you enjoyed my biggest post ever that is over one thousand words!!!

The Chameleon

The Chameleon

She hides in the land
She is quite homesick,
For life is so bland
It is way too thick

When danger is near
She is fraught with fear,
A thunderous ripple occurs
Is she safe, we are not quite
sure,

A color change covers her body
She is more vibrant than most,
It is hard not to boast
About the colorful magician of reptiles

An electric green to a lighting bolt yellow
An ocean blue to a fire truck red,
The changes make her quietly mellow
As they reach her intense head

A tongue the size of a football field
The spikes of a cactus,
A roundabout tail like a spiral staircase
All of this sounds like an unbelievable dream,

For the conditions are rough
And the environment is tough,
She will be gone in a puff
For she is known by most
As the colorful magician of
reptiles.

My second author’s note: I chose my topic as a chameleon because I’m touched by how they can change colors. It is really cool and I wanted to bring out the beauty of it in my writing. “As the colorful magician of reptiles.” That line brings out the beauty of it. With nature I can compare way more things than if I chose an everyday topic. My favorite line of my poem was “An electric green to a lightning bolt yellow.” It has so much meaning and cleverness in my opinion. My poem started out with 5 stanzas, and then I added another stanza to help get the message through. I hope my reader feels like they are in a mysterious fearful land.

The Anaconda

His body was scaly

And shedded

And jungle green,

And as he passed the settlement

He turned,

And gobbled up a turkey

That was dead from poison.

And I saw the flash of a “v” tongue,

And two fangs filled with venom,

And eyes of amber,

Poisonous, stingy, and patient.

Then out of the jungle,

With that seventeen foot long body

Slithering as quiet as a mouse

Glaring,

Watching,

Waiting,

He slithered – that silly strange reptile,

Scaly, shedded, jungle green,

Part shark, part eagle,

Part neither- for he was about to strike.

 

Inspired by The Shark by Edwin John Pratt.

Authors Note: I wanted to make a homage  of this poem because the imagery and word choice made me perfectly imagine this in my head. I changed the animal from shark to anaconda. This poem is really good and fun to read.
