In like six days, my school will be on our summer vacation. I am so excited, but it’s not like I’m going to be at home all day. I’m going to be in Summer R.A.P. Summer R.A.P. is an activity thing in school where you do things. We will have clubs that we can choose from, so we will be able play and have fun. I am going to be in a team called flag team/color guard. This is a complicated sport, but I like it very much. We have to go to field shows and perform in the public. After Summer R.A.P, I will probably be at home or hanging out with my friends. I hope I will have enough time to spend on the computer, so I can communicate with my friends. Hope me and you can communicate over the summer too. Bye and have an  exciting SUMMER!!! Hopefully see you next year!!!

Should people run hot water instead of a lot of cold water to wash the dishes? I think running less hot water is still better than running cold water because you will have to run a lot more cold water so the dishes can be clean, but it takes less hot water and more cold water to make your dishes clean. I also think that less hot water cost the same as a lot of cold water.

Some people say that they don’t want to use hot water to wash dishes because it cost too much. Well, if you use the same energy from hot water as you use cold water, you will be paying the same. Even if you use hot water… would that affect your money budget? Think about it. Just for a little bit more money to pay for hot water, you would risk you and your family’s health and you or your insurance would have to pay thousands of dollars just because you didn’t pay like five dollars extra.

It is safer to use hot water because it helps kill bacteria on the dishes. It gives you a better assurance of not having to worry about your dishes being dirty or not being sanitized enough. Also, hot water is proven to take out a lot more bacteria and make the dishes cleaner than cold water.

Some studies show that people prefer to use cold water and run it a lot because they think it cost less. A scientist said the people were “Dumb. They don’t think very well.”, when he saw the results. When I heard this, I had almost the same reaction as the scientist. Why would you think that using a lot of cold water is better than using hot water?

So now that you’ve gotten some facts and evidence, I will ask one more time… Should people run hot water(when you can run less of it), or run a lot of cold water, so your dishes can be much cleaner? I think people should run less water, and that’s what I do at home, but it is your choice. I beg and urge you to do the right thing and use less hot water for your dishes, and not cold water at all. DO THE RIGHT THING!!!

I FEEL……….. BAD :(


Posted by mimshappy | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 8, 2010

Since this week began, it’s been bad. I just don’t feel like myself. First, I got mad at my mom. Then, I got mad at my friend. Today, I got mad at a lot of people in my class. It is just unlike me to get so mad at people just like that and want to forgive them, but I can’t. My mind always wants to forgive them, but my mouth won’t say those words. Well, the reason I am so mad is probably because they haven’t apologized yet. I guess I can’t forgive someone if they haven’t said sorry yet. All I hope is that things get better than they already are. I am thinking about it now, and I feel better when I write about it. This kind of gives me an idea of writing on my blog about my week so far. I just hope things get better, and I urge you to hope with me.

I chose Eagle 23‘s blog as my favorite. She has some of the same interest as me and when I look at her blog, it reminds me of my blog. I also like her blog because all the things she says in it are very good and thoughtful. I couldn’t have choose a better student blog to nominate. It was hard for me to look for a good student blog on the Student Blogging Challenge because there were so many. I looked through a lot of them, but I just kept on gravitating back to this one. I hear-by award this to Eagle 23.

My favorite class blog is Miss Nichols‘ class blog. Her’s was very interesting because it had a lot of things you could look at and the posts were very thoughtful. She and her students seemed to work very hard on their blog and it just has a lot of things about issues today and interesting things. I saw a lot of other good class blogs, but this one stood out the most to me. Please go to this blog and look at it because their blog is very good.

As you may know, choosing your favorite from your friends is very hard. I found it very challenging to choose my favorite blogs from my friends, so I chose two people to nominate. One of them, though, is the runner up. These are my friends and I think that their blogs were very good. The two people I chose were Jazmin and Tulsi. Their blogs were just so good and inspiring. I liked their blogs and what they said in it. Jazmin is the runner up. her blog was really good, but I had to choose one. I am so sorry to all those I didn’t choose, but I just had to choose these two people. Don’t forget to check out all their blogs.

My Birthday

Guess what everyone? This week, I turned 12. It doesn’t feel any different to me. When I was 11, I used to think that turning 12 felt different, but it doesn’t. I didn’t do anything big for my birthday. All we did in my house was that my uncle bought me some food from the restaurant and he also bought some pumpkin pie. I was so full, I got the smallest piece of pumpkin pie. I was very happy, though. The best part of it was that my birthday wasn’t durning testig time. I love my birthday and I always look forward to it. I can’t wait till next year when I turn 13 (I know my birthday just passed).

My Personal Haikus

Haikus That Keep Me Happy

The  cold winter burns

I see a campfire now-

Yes! People are here.

Very hot summer

Then – I see a swimming pool.

Splash! Now it is cold.

Harsh wind and brown trees.

They always fall just like me.

They regrow- me too!
