L O V E-earth! -> EARTH HOUR *

Picture from:
I've seen some forwards in the web where they plan an international earth day... I don't really check my email often since its full of notifications from facebook or other cites, so when i get to open them its to late. I always wondered if days of not using any energy for 5 minutes actually worked, one day changing through the channels in TV I saw a guy talking about this forwards. He said that it couldn't help much if people don't really see it and if it actually gets to another places in earth the time would be different, he though THAT forward weren't well planed. I have to admit, I got his point, I mean it only said one day at ONE specific hour. Soon enough I forgot about the forward, but today for English class our class had to do this challenge, we did one similar the past fall... I was scowling down and then I saw something that caught my attention "Join in Earth Hour..." I wondered what it was about, and soon enough I was exploring the page. I found SO many things. I consider my self a Hippie in someway... Ahaha I really care about the environment, It's one of my favorite topics in sciences, but well that another story. The challenge was about posting of something related to the environment. I found so many ways of helping prevent climate change, and when I was many, I mean MANY! ways to help individuals, cities, organizations, schools, etc. I also found some Climate Facts... I really liked the page, but I was still wondering what is this all about? Earth Day is a movement who tries to help climate change, this group invites people to turn off lights for an hour.
-Does this actually work?
YES! Earth day make it at the same time ALL over the world, I don't mean time by hour, but by... time! hahah I guess what I'm trying to say is it can be 1.oOpm in Wisconsin, and 8.Oopm in Spain!
-But what can you do for an hour, well they give you A LOT of ideas, I do think its worth it. :)

The date is March 27, it will be at 8:3O pm in Wisconsin. Since it will be at night, I think I'm going out side and look at the stars for a while, can you imagine how cool would it look?? yes yes, I know not EVERYONE is doing it, but we have to start somewhere, and I want to start helping!

JOIN there is still time! :D

WISCONSIN, a great place to visit, (;*

Challenge 3;

Wisconsin has many thing to offer, I moved here a couple of years ago and fell in love with the place. Where can you actually see the four stations of the year, winter, spring, fall and summer. here you'll find more then one thing to do, and you won't get bored because well... there is always something fun to do. If you are fan of football, or Futbol Americano, you should definitely visit the Lambeau Field where the Green Bay Packers play! If you look for something to do in the summer, you can go camping in the green beautiful woods of Wisconsin, or to Noah's Ark a favorite water park in the state. You can also go tubing or water skiing in one of the beautiful lakes of Wisconsin. I promise you won't regret visiting... in the winter you can ski, snowboard, and many many more things. If you like animals, you;ll find a lot here, Wisconsin is a big farmer place.The people is very welcoming and the place its just beautiful! :D

Photo? Avatar? Photo? Avatar?... AVATAR!

In general, don't think its very appropriate for students to use real pictures of themselves in their blogs. I don't want to be hypocrite, to a certain point i understand why us, teenagers use pictures of our selves. Is a way of seeing people who are far, to see friends, to see what they do, but sometimes the innocent idea of using pictures to show your buds how cute you look in a picture can turn in something fatal. Your friends are NOT the only ones who can see your pictures. Posting a picture of you is like opening the door of your house to a complete stranger. Not all the people in the world have good intentions, and you have to know that.

You shouldn't post any personal information, your friends should know it after all right? In the case of a blog, you are sharing your thoughts, not where you live... can you imagine how many people can see your blog!??? If you are going to post a picture of your self make sure you are not the only one on it, that way people wont know who is the owner of the blog. If you love to have pictures on you blog, facebook, whatever, you can always use an avatar. You can express your feeling and thing you like though pictures. It could be a beach, shopping bags, a basketball... whatever you like.

It better, and more fun when you go online and you know you are being safe... i found some privacy setting Facebook users should have, & i wanted to share it with you!...

Chalange 1' (:

Students and classes should visit my blog for many reasons, personally i don't really like reading long-boring posts with no interesting stuff on it. I'm a teenager and I'll write about things that happen to us... I'll write about life the way I see it, & believe me my life can be a little crazy. It will be my own little world. I'll be posting about my life, opinions, whatever I thing of. By reading my blog you'll learn more about my life, my believes, and my crazy adventures.
