Hi, so… I’m Erika. I’m graduating grade 8 in a week and a few days… I’m pretty excited… only for summer break tho. I admit I’m gonna miss everyone… but yeah I’m excited!
A few things I struggled with this year was a lack of determination… due dates… and holayyyy there’s quite a bit of drama. People don’t always get along of course. But anyways… yeah it was pretty easy once I got the hang of the work again… since I’ve been in this class for like 2 years now.
I think next year will be manageable, as long as I keep my determination up… I think I got it. I might struggle with new people… or people I haven’t seen in awhile, but I can stick with my friend group of course. I’m also a little afraid of tests or exams… I really don’t like them, and I absolutely hate studying… but… It’ll be fine.
I’ve learnt a lot this year… I literally don’t even know where to start… I knew like no science at the beginning of the year… and I think that’s the subject I most improved on. I think my math improved quite a bit too, I really suck at math, but I thank Mr. E for helping me with everything.
Although I’m gonna miss everyone over the summer, I definitely need a break from school, and all the work and stuff. Oh and I got a pretty sick dress for the grad party I’m pretty excited to wear it.
If your in my class… you know I have pretty long hair… if your not, then well yeah… I do. I’ve had a lot of thoughts about trimming it… but, I think I’ve made my decision. I wanna grow it to about roughly 4 feet. Right now it’s 2 feet. That will probably be most of my height though since I’m only about 5’2, and I don’t think I’ll get much taller because literally everyone in my family is short… but anyways.
Why I want extremely long hair
I don’t really know why… but I’ve always dreamed about having really long hair. In reality… as a child my favourite movie was tangled… and I looked at the main character, Rapunzel, and wished that was me. I think it’s really beautiful, and super cool to stand out and be different. I also don’t like short hair so that’s another good reason.
Some issues I already have struggled with
It’s pretty difficult to take care of to be honest. Washing it takes forever, and blow drying it. Also it’s a huge struggle to keep it healthy, and products cost a lot of money. If you don’t use the right products, or if you use heat all the time, it will result in dead and very damaged hair. About the heat thing, one way if you wanted to use heat, use heat protectant spray! Although it’s not cheap, it’s worth it.
In the end it’s totally worth it… I’m very sure I’ll be happy with the result, and it’s worth the wait of a few years.
Okay so today I’ll be blogging mainly about my phone, and how broke I am.
First of all… The phone I always use is an iPhone SE, which is super old. It was released right after the iPhone 5s. In my opinion, It’s a very reliable phone, I haven’t really had any problems with it… other than being slow. I’ve popped the screen off a few times… and had to put it back. Although I’m very surprised how good it’s working hence I bought it second hand, for a very cheap price actually, and have had it for like 4 years. It still updates to the newest software every time a new one is released, which is surprising because apparently apple discontinued available software updates for devices under the iPhone 6, which really slowed down phones and made people frustrated. Apparently Apple got sued for that… but my phone never got affected by it. I wouldn’t mind getting a new phone, if I had the money. Even though I have a job… I CANNOT save my money. It’s just impossible.
Yesterday, was my birthday. I had a pretty good day, my friends gave me some gifts, and I had my favourite substitute teacher. I had an even better day on Wednesday tho, because I stayed after school with my best friend, and we had sort of a picnic outside by the river. I had a lot of fun of course. It couldn’t be better, especially now, with the pandemic. It sucks. But like I said, I don’t think I could’ve spent it in a better way. I’d say it was better than last year to be honest. Oh and speaking of that, last year I had my golden birthday! Incase you don’t know, a golden birthday is when your age and the date you were born line up.
But since there’s not much to do, that was the best idea I could come up with! It sucks living in a pandemic.
I was scrolling through our class blog, and I saw an interesting blog post by Eternity! I thought I’d share it,, although I disagree with the post that argues android is better than apple, but she has some points. Go check out her blog:)
Today, I didn’t know what to blog about, so I just decided to blog about the weather here in Manitoba.
Now, the weather is currently consistent, but a week or two ago, it was literally snowing. At the end of April. For real. That’s one con about living here. One day its 18 degrees then it’s snowing. Please mother nature make up your mind. You know? It gets a bit frustrating, and messes with my mood, but what can I do right?
But I don’t mind it because I know summer is on it’s way. I’m really grateful that I don’t like somewhere like Toronto or Vancouver, where it’s always raining. But I mean, change is nice.
Also one struggle I have is allergies, and dry skin. Holyyy I hate having dry akin, especially on my hands. It hurts really bad. Also, I’m severely allergic to mold, so in the spring, the moisture from the ground gives me allergies. But it’s whatever right! Gotta enjoy life!!!
I really like Mr. Ewerts posts. Very educational for learning, you wish he was your teacher, I know you do.
I recently read Annah’s blog about her favourite candies! I can relate because I really like all the candies she listed too. Maybe you can relate? Go chceck out her blog! https://annahsaemsblog2020.edublogs.org/
Hello welcome back. Recently I’ve been learning electric guitar, with my uncle as my teacher. He actually used to play in a teen band years back. I find it really helpful to calm my mood lol. Like especially when I’m mad, I’ll just go and play.
I love playing electric guitar. It’s actually one of my favourite things to do. But I’m struggling with one REALLY big issue. I have really small hands. It’s super difficult to reach the frets, and my hands get extremely sore. Also pushing down on the notes is pretty difficult, but not as difficult as reaching the frets. If you don’t press the strings down hard enough to create the note, it won’t sound right, which results in a lot of fails and mess ups. I struggled with that.
If you ever decide to start learning electric guitar, I highly, HIGHLY, and if I didn’t make it clear, one more time… HIGHLY suggest you get an amp. It sounds sooo much better with an amp. Especially if you want that hard rock sound, which would be the grain effect.
A few months ago I learnt some piano, I would have to say in my opinion, guitar is easier, but both different in their own ways. But anywhoo, yeah I’ll probably do some updates on here about that!
Hello. Welcome back to another basic blog:) If you don’t know me, I really like to draw and doodle when I’m bored. I don’t know I can’t control it… it just happens. I’m sure ya’ll can kinda relate???? Anyways, recently I’ve gotten into a really REALLY bad habit of drawing on myself when I’m bored. Even if I have paper right in front of me, I still won’t use it. I’d prefer to draw on my hand… and I don’t even notice I’m doing it. The reason I say it’s a bad habit is because the ink is so bad for your skin… It’s not as bad as sharpie but pretty bad… which can lead to ink/ led poisoning.
But I don’t know I think it’s really cool. The kind of cool to please yourself… Not ot hers if you know what I mean. When I usually do things that are unordinary, it’s not for anyone, it’s for me. I wanna feel happy with myself and how I do things/act and not care what anyone else thinks.
. Anyways, one of my favorite things to draw on my hands/ arm are bones/ replica of a skeleton hand. If your in my class or go to my school… I’m not sure if you noticed but I drew one last night 🙂 I got in trouble¬_¬… But I think it’s totally worth it. It’s not a big deal anyways. It takes quite awhile too so it gives me something to do I guess!
I’ve inserted a picture below I found online which it kinda looks like⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇
